John S. Toll earned a B.A. at Yale in 1944 and had completed an M.A. and Ph.D. in physics at Princeton by 1952. During his graduate studies, he worked as a theoretical physicist at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory in New Mexico. From 1953 to 1965, Toll headed the University of Maryland Physics Department. He then moved to the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he served as president until returning to the University of Maryland in 1978. Toll resigned in 1989 and later served as president of Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, from 1995 to 2004.
