Woolford B. Baker was a long-time professor of biology and the first recipient of Emory's Thomas Jefferson Award (1962) for service to the university.

As a faculty member, he was an early steward of the landscape of the campus, and the ravine is named in his honor in appreciation for his commitment to preserving the natural beauty of the campus.

Following his retirement, he served part-time as director of the university museum, then housed on the first floor of the since-demolished Bishops Hall.
