Built in 1964, the building served as home to OSU's rapidly growing oceanography department. It was later named Burt Hall after Wayne Burt, who was instrumental in establishing the oceanography program in 1959. As a result of Burt’s efforts, the university’s Marine Science Center in Newport opened as a research, education, and outreach facility in 1965.
