Cornell faculty have inspired generations of young scholars. William T. Keeton served on the CALS faculty from 1958-1980. His popular biology class was delivered to standing-room only audiences. Keeton is known for ground-breaking research on homing pigeons and he wrote a textbook that integrated biology and evolution. The William T. Keeton house on West Campus honors his many contributions.
