Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees of Archbold Expeditions carries forward the mission of Richard Archbold and the organization he established, guiding the programmatic activities of Archbold Biological Station, the MacArthur Agro-ecology Research Center, and the Archbold Reserve. The Station is funded principally by proceeds from an endowment created by Richard Archbold, which is managed by the Board of Trustees.

Following Mr. Archbold's death in 1976, his sister Mrs. Frances Hufty assumed the Chairmanship of the Board of Trustees of Archbold Expeditions. Upon her passing in November 2010, her daughter, Mary Hufty, became Chair. The Board is currently comprised of 12 Trustees. Several members of Richard Archbold's family, scientists, and other professionals guide the organization's success. They meet at least once each year at Archbold Biological Station and via teleconference quarterly. Committees also hold regularly scheduled meetings.
