 Charles Joseph Norwood was born on September 17, 1853 in New Harmony, Indiana. As an undergraduate, Norwood attended the University of Missouri. He later earned a Master's degree from the Kentucky Agricultural and Mechanical College. Norwood came to Kentucky in 1874 to take a position as an assistant geologist (he later served as director) in the Kentucky Geological Survey. Following a stint as a professor of natural science at Bethal College, Norwood was appointed the first inspector of Kentucky mines in 1884. He held that position until 1897. In 1902, he began a relationship with the University of Kentucky. While at the university, Norwood founded the College of Mines and Metallurgy and served the college as a professor and its dean. Norwood planned and supervised the Kentucky Mineral Exhibit at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. The Mining Building on the University of Kentucky campus was named after Charles Joseph Norwood on May 31, 1930 upon President Frank LeRond McVey's suggestion. Norwood died on January 20, 1927.
