Inscription.  In 1871, Theodore Wolf joined Delaware College as a 21-year-old Professor of Chemistry, fresh from receiving his doctorate at the University of Heidelberg, Germany.

Professor Wolf was a demanding but innovative and popular teacher. He worked to enhance graduate education and established the University's first internship program.

A faculty member for almost four decades, Professor Wolf served as Acting President for a brief time in 1901 and also was Delaware's State Chemist.

This building, named in his honor, was a gift of benefactor Pierre S. du Pont and was completed in 1917.
