Alpheus Hyatt was a naturalist, paleontologist, and educator. In 1879, he established a laboratory in Annisquam, where he had a summer home. He brought his daughter, Anna Hyatt, to Annisquam with him, who would later become a sculptor and created the Joan of Arc statue in Gloucester.

He owned a 60-foot schooner that he used to make scientific cruises along the New England coast. Later, the station moved to Woods Hole and became Woods Hole Oceanographic Laboratory.
