Knowles A. Ryerson
Ryerson hall was completed in 1963, and named in honor of Knowles A. Ryerson. Dr. Ryerson received a B.S. in horticulture from UC Berkeley and later earned a masters degree, and its highest academic honor, the LL.D degree from UC Berkeley in 1961. A professor of Horticulture and the director of the College of Agriculture at Davis from 1917 to 1952, Dr. Ryerson was named Dean of the College of Agriculture at Berkeley in 1952 and held that post until his retirement in 1960. UC Davis Chancellor Hullar said of Dr. Ryerson after his death: "Knowles was at the center of the magnificent growth and stature of the Davis campus. As Assistant Dean of Agriculture at Davis for 15 years, from 1937 to 1952, he was so instrumental in setting the College of Agriculture on the course that has given rise to its strength and impressive quality and to the comprehensive Davis campus of today. All of us at Davis have a keen debt to the Ryerson era."
