Historical Note

The unofficial beginning of a forestry curriculum at North Carolina State University began in 1917 when J.S. Homes was appointed the first Extension Forester. In 1925, R.W. Graeber became an Extension Forester and provided strong leadership for the establishment of a formal forestry program.

In 1929, the university formally established the Department of Forestry in the School of Agriculture. Dr. Julius V. Hofmann served as its first director, starting early on to acquire land to create teaching and research forests. In 1931, the Department of Forestry was renamed the Division of Forestry within the School of Agriculture and Forestry. Dr. J.V. Hofmann retired as Director of the Division in 1948 and was replaced by Richard J. Preston.

During Preston's tenure in 1950, the Division of Forestry was elevated to school status and named the School of Forestry. In 1952, the school moved to new quarters in Kilgore Hall. The school underwent another name change in 1968, becoming the School of Forest Resources. The name change was meant to better reflect the broadening of the school's programs, including the addition of the Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management curriculum transferred from the School of Education.

In 1970, the school moved into the newly-constructed Biltmore Hall, named after the nation's first school of forestry, the Biltmore Forest School. At the retirement of Dean Preston in 1971, Eric L. Ellwood, who was serving as head of the Department of Wood and Paper Science, became dean, serving until 1989. The school became a college in 1987, and its name was changed from the College of Forest Resources to the College of Natural Resources in 2000.
