Named for William Keyser who was the moving force behind the donation of the Homewood property to Johns Hopkins. He contributed 62 acres and also organized the donation of other land by Samuel Keyser, Francis M. Jencks, William H. Buckler, and Julian LeRoy White. This land, in combination with the donation from William Wyman, formed the original Homewood campus.
Businessman and philanthropist William Keyser owned the Baltimore Copper Works and became a vice president of the B&O Railroad in 1870. Despite having no formal connection with the university, Keyser motivated by an acute sense of the gratitude he owed Baltimore for his success made Johns Hopkins his primary beneficiary. His son Brent was later chairman of the Johns Hopkins board of trustees from 1903 to 1927.
