Dabney Hall is a nine-story building that houses studies in chemistry, statistics and physics. When first built, Dabney was also used for some of the main studies in computer science. The building is named for Dr. Charles William Dabney (1855-1945), a figure whose influence not only helped to create NC State, but advanced the educational and material resources of the South.

By the age of 17, Dabney had already graduated from Hampden-Sydney College to attend graduate school at the University of Virginia. After three years, he continued his education at the University of Goettingen in Germany and acquired his Ph. D. in Chemistry. In the years following, Dabney served as ambassador to Brazil, director of the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station, and Professor of Chemistry at the University of North Carolina. In addition, he received 5 honorary doctorates, was elected a member of the Institute of Public Instruction in France, and was made chevalier of the Legion of Honor in 1915. Dabney is best known at NC State for assisting in writing the founding legislation of the University and for his lifelong efforts in the development of the South, especially North Carolina.
