From the Johns Hopkins University website:

"AMR II: Jennings. Director of the Hopkins Zoological Laboratory from 1906 to 1938, Herbert Spencer Jennings was one of America's foremost evolutionary biologists. Although he spent most of his time studying the processes of evolution in paramecia, Jennings became famous for his statements on the social applications of biology, and was one of the leading proponents of the idea that environment is as important as heredity."

AMR stands for Alumni Memorial Residences; accordingly, there is a dormitory at JHU named for Jennings.
