History

The university was founded in 1957 as the State University College on Long Island with about 100 students enrolled.[2] The first temporary campus was at the William Robertson Coe Planting Fields estate in Oyster Bay.[2] Originally, Stony Brook was a college for preparing secondary school teachers in mathematics and the sciences.[2] Since 1962, the campus has been located on land donated by philanthropist Ward Melville.[2] The original donation consisted of over 400 acres (1.6 km²), but the campus has since grown to about three times that size.[2] Among the four SUNY University Centers, Stony Brook is the only one that was originally founded after the SUNY system was established.

The Stony Brook campus was initially concentrated around what was called G-Quad (now Mendelsohn Quad), and almost all offices were located here. Classes took place in the Humanities building, and some classes were still offered at Oyster Bay. However, the 1960s and 1970s witnessed rapid growth under university president John S. Toll. More buildings were erected on campus, and academic programs and enrollment grew. John S. Toll is a physicist and well-known educational administrator. ...
