In 2013, the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. Sustain Building opened on the campus of the University of Miami’s Marine Technology and Life Sciences complex on Virginia Key, Florida. Inside is a wind-wave surge simulator. This technology can generate the effects of a category 5 hurricane in three dimensions. The center’s benefactor was the founder of the Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Company. Alfred C. Glassell Jr. was also an avid sports fisherman. In 1953, he caught a 1,560 pound black marlin off the coast of Peru. This weight still holds the record.
