Cory Hall

cory hallBuilt in 1960 and dedicated in 1992, Cory Hall recognizes pioneering entomologist Dr. Ernest Cory (1887-1979) who headed the University of Maryland's Entomology Department for more than 40 years. Dr. Cory also directed the State of Maryland's Agricultural Extension Service for nearly two decades, and was influential in planning and developing what would later become the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory. CBL's founder and first director - Dr. R.V. Truitt - was a student of Dr. Cory's at College Park, and was encouraged to pursue oyster research by his mentor.

Today, Cory Hall houses offices and laboratories of faculty involved in various aspects of the Chesapeake Bay Monitoring Program, including the Nutrient Analytical Services Laboratory.
