Charles A. Lory (1872-1969) was the fifth president of Colorado Agricultural College (now Colorado State University). From 1909 to 1940, Lory oversaw significant expansion of the college. He was involved with many local and national organizations, most of which focused on water use, agriculture, and higher education.
