The building is named after Roy Styring Dearstyne (1890-1960), who developed a testing procedure for controlling pullorum disease. He also wrote one of the nation's first books on poultry diseases and was a leader in the founding of the North Carolina Hatchery Association and the North Carolina Poultry Council. Dearstyne was among the editorial staff of Poultry Science magazine, and he frequently contributed to its articles. He earned his B.S. degree from the University of Maryland, served in World War I, and worked for Wake County, North Carolina as a pathologist. In 1922, he acquired his M.S. from NC State. Dearstyne is best known for his contributions to the state's expansion of poultry production during the post World War II period.
