While at the Department, he organized the Graduate School and served as its Director. From 1925 to 1928, Ball was in charge of an investigation of celery pests for the Florida State Plant Board. In 1928 he joined the University of Arizona as Dean of the College of Agriculture and later served as Professor of Zoology and Economic Entomologist.
