John Toll, 1st State University Chancellor, Dies

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — John S. Toll, Maryland’s first state university chancellor, died Friday at an assisted living facility in Bethesda. He was 87.

Washington College, where he served as president from 1995 to 2004, reported his death on its website.

In 1988, then-Gov. William Donald Schaefer put Toll in charge of a system of five campuses, merged into the University System of Maryland.

Gov. Martin O’Malley said Toll helped build the University of Maryland system into what it is today.
