Abstract/Summary The Biological Sciences building was officially opened in July 1962. It was later re-named the Goddard building in honour of Professor Ernest J. Goddard. He was a Professor Biology at The University of Queensland from 1923 to 1948 and was involved with the establishment of a Faculty of Agriculture in 1926. On occasions he acted as Dean of Dentistry and Veterinary Science and played an important role in the establishment of the Faculty of Medicine. He passed away in 1948 on Heron Island where he had been planning the establishment of a marine biology station.
