Measurements of the mass-to-light ratios of galaxies are crucial to a proper understanding of galaxy dynamics, dark matter distributions, and the general matter content of the universe. We report on results of a program to measure the change of theM/Lratio with redshift. Since the evolution of theM/Lcan be parameterized as
