In 1957, the Board of Regents of the State University of New York authorized William Robertson Coe’s exquisite 350-acre former arboretum-estate in Oyster Bay, named Planting Fields, as SBU’s temporary campus, while a new campus was under construction in historic Stony Brook, on a 480-acre tract of land donated by philanthropist Ward Melville.
