Special Exhibit

Celebrating 50 Years at the Mesa Laboratory

Now through December 2017, the NCAR Archives gallery will feature a retrospective exhibit celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the Mesa Lab dedication. During the official Mesa Lab anniversary celebrations in August, the exhibit will move temporarily down to the lobby of the Mesa Lab. Please stop by the exhibit to see artifacts, documents, and photographs from the design, construction, and dedication of the Mesa Lab as well as highlights from its 50-year history. Events will be held in August to commemorate the anniversary, but to learn more about the history of the Mesa Laboratory, browse through the digital collection or visit the online exhibit.

In the meantime, enjoy this special offering and listen to Fanfare for NCAR. Composer Cecil Effinger wrote "Fanfare for NCAR" for the dedication of the Mesa Laboratory in 1967. The piece was played at the dedication on May 10, 1967 and was introduced by the University of Colorado Brass Choir.
