History

Botany, entomology, microbiology and zoology are among the subjects studied in Bostian Hall, a three-story building with a total area of 35,000 square feet. The building is named after Carey Hoyt Bostian, who succeeded Harrelson in 1953 as chancellor. Bostian accepted the position only under the condition that he could step down in a few years. After six years of resolving complex issues of the 50's, he resigned his esteemed position to return to "his first love--teaching." Afterwards, he worked as a geneticist, and later, as director of the School of Agriculture.

His popularity among students, faculty and staff is confirmed by the 1947 NC State Agromeck's dedication to him. He was also selected for the Blue Key Award, the Alumni Distinguished Award, and the Watauga Medal.
