Patricia Louise Dudley (1929–2004) was an American zoologist specializing in research of copepods. She taught at Barnard College for 35 years and served as Chair of the Biological Sciences department. She was an NSF faculty fellow.

Early life and education[edit]

She was born on May 22, 1929, the daughter of David C. and Carolyn (Latas) Dudley,[1] in Denver, Colorado, where her father was a salesman for State and School Supply.[2] Her father died in 1932, and her family lived in Colorado Springs with her maternal grandparents while she was a child.[3]

Dudley earned her B.S. degree in 1951 at the University of Colorado, where she studied under the direction of Robert William Pennak, a specialist in limnology. She received her Master of Science in 1953 at the University of Washington,[4] completing her thesis on the subject of fauna present in four brooks in Boulder County, Colorado.[5]

Dudley continued her research at the University of Washington with Paul Louis Illg where she contributed research on aquatic organisms including crustaceans known as copepods and invertebrates known as tunicates throughout the various stages of their development. She defended her thesis, entitled Development of Notodelphyid Copepods and the Application of Larval Characteristics to the Systematics of some Species from the Northeastern Pacific, in 1957.[6]


During her time in Washington, she worked at Friday Harbor Laboratories, as as an instructor in marine invertebrate zoology.[4]

Following her graduate studies, she joined the faculty of Columbia University in 1959 where she taught zoology at Barnard College, a position she held until her retirement in 1994. She spent two years (in 1969 and 1971) as an investigator in the Systematics Ecology Program at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Marine Biology Lab.[4] In 1979 she became Chair of the Biological Sciences department at Barnard.[4]

Dudley served as Secretary of the Invertebrate Biology section of the American Society of Zoologists from 1973–1976.[4] She also was a member of the American Institute of Biological Science, the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, and the American Microscopical Society.[4]

She died on September 30, 2004, in Seattle, Washington.[7] Dudley's papers are archived in the Special Collections of the University of Washington Libraries.[8]


Dudley was named a National Science Foundation faculty fellow in 1965.[4]
