Walter E. Foran Hall was dedicated on October 30, 1995 and is a 150,400 square foot complex. Moose Foran was a New Jersey legislator (Republican, Hunterdon County) from 1969 to his death in office in 1989 and was an early promoter of biotechnology. Foran was instrumental in situating the AgBiotech Center at NJAES and was considered a founding father of the vision that the Center represents. He was considered an old school statesman: he had a congenial and persuasive manner an imposing figure and quick mind. Foran was a champion of Cook College and the NJAES and spearheaded construction of the Agricultural Museum. The first formal recommendation for a Plant Science and Biotechnology Complex is contained in the 1988 report of the blue-ribbon Committee on the Advancement of Agricultural Research and Technology (CAART). Since then, the State of New Jersey, Rutgers and the federal government have invested some $47 million to transform CAART's recommendation into reality.
