"Our goal at the University of 
Maryland is to be a place 
where excellence is achieved 
through diversity. A place that 
reflects the diversity of our 
state and the cultural richness 
of our world. A place where 
one can challenge the ideas of 
another while affirming the 
human dignity of all. A place

William E. Kirwan 

Ciingriitulations on achieving the ultimate goal of your 
undergraduate years. On behalf of the University of Maryland 
Alumni Association, I would like to add our very best wishes to 
those you ha\'e recei\'ed from your faculty and other university 
friends. As President Kirwan has told so many recent alumni, you'll always be 
a part of us, and we hope you'll keep in touch. 

Your commencement ceremony today includes a special tradition. You will be 
officially inducted as a member of the University of Maryland Alumni 
Association by this year's association president, Phil Rever. Your six-month 
membership card and a list of benefits and services may be found on the 
inside back cover of the Graduation Handbook. If you no longer have your 
handbook, please stop by the Office of Alumni Programs located in the 
Kossborough Inn. We will be pleased to issue you a new membership card and 
provide you with more information. 

Wherever your plans take you following graduation, you'll find University of Maryland friends and 
professional contacts by staying involved in alumni activities. There are more than 30 academic, regional and 
special interest groups — including our newest, the Young Alumni Club, which you may find to be of particilar 
interest. And, of course, attending Maryland athletic events is always a great way to get together with fellow 
grads. Regardless of how you choose to stay involved, our purpose remains the same: to respond to the needs 
and interests of all alumni, and to support your continued interest in and loyalty to the University of 

Again, best wishes for all the challenges and triumphs that lie ahead.

the Senior 


Todav you complete the joume\' 
which was undertaken several 
years ago, arriving proudly at 
the threshold of a new life. 
When you look back, can you see how this 
journey has changed you? As you sit here 
today, what events stand out in your mind 
as experiences that showed you which 
path to travel? 

We have each followed a unique path but 
have reached a common destination. As 
seniors, it is easier to list the ways in which 
we are different from each other than the 
ways in which we are bound together. 

We are accustomed to describing students in groups — commuters, residents; members of ethnic, religious, or 
professional organizations; students in particular departments and colleges. These differences should be admired 
and respected as should the many qualities we share. 

From this point, you can reflect on past journeys. Remember what you learned along the way about who you are 
and what you are capable of achieving. 

Know that your time spent at the Uni\'ersity of Mar)-land will help you arrive at your next destination. Finally 
always consider our campus to be another home, a stop on your life's journey to which vou can always return.

The University of 


at College Park 


Flagship campus of Maryland's 11-institution 
system of higher learning, the University of 
Maryland at College Park is the most 
comprehensive institution of higher education, 
research, and service in the state. The university 
offers 98 undergraduate majors, 87 master's 
programs, and 68 doctoral programs in 13 schools 
and colleges. 

The university is one of only 30 public research 
universities that are members of the prestigious 58- 
member Association of American Universities and 
the only public institution in the Maryland-D.C. 
area with membership in the nation's most 
distinguished honor society. Phi Beta Kappa. It is 
classified as a Research-1 university by the Carnegie 
Foundation by virtue of the range of its 
baccalaureate programs, the amount of federal 
support received, and the number of doctoral 
degrees awarded each year, sharing that honor with 
the top research universities in the country.

Among public universities in the Association of 
American Universities, College Park ranks among 
the top in the percentage of African American 
undergraduate students. In addition, the university 
has the largest number of African American and 
other minority faculty members among its peers. 


The University of Maryland was founded in 1807 in 

Baltimore as a faculty-owned College of Medicine. 

The medical school 

was considered one of 

the top schools in the 

country, attracting 

notable professors 

and lecturers from 

throughout the 

world. In its 

beginning, tuition 

cost $140, grades 

were sent home 

weekly to parents, 

and students could 

obtain room and 

board for $300 


Five years later, the growing institution was 
renamed the University of Maryland. Despite the 
name, the university was not considered a state 
institution as it was still owned and operated by 
faculty. Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, the 
first dental school in America, became a part of the 
university in 1840, awarding the first Doctor of 
Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 1841. 

In 1859, the Maryland Agricultural College, which 
would evolve into the University of Maryland at 
College Park, was opened under a charter secured 
by a group of Maryland planters in 1856. In 
addition to spending one hour each day hoeing or 
plowing on the college farm, students took a broad 

range of courses in ancient and modern 
languages, natural sciences, English, and 
mathematics. After a disastrous fire on campus in 
1912, the state acquired the college and rebuilt it. 

In 1920, the state legislature combined the 
College Park institution with the professional 
schools in Baltimore to form an expanded 
University of Maryland. The entity eventually 
grevkf to include campuses in Baltimore County, 
the Eastern Shore, and University CoUege, a 
continuing educahon inshtution. 

The following decades saw the increasing 
growth of student population, excellence in 
programs and curricula, and the burgeoning of 
the University of Maryland at College Park into ,i 
nationally recognized research institution. 

July 1, 1988, marked tlie dawn of a new era in 
higher education in the state of Maryland, as the 
five components of the universit)' were merged 
with six other state universities and colleges to 
form the University of Maryland System, and 
College Park secured its flagship status with a 
mandate to become one of the pre-eminent 
research universities in the nation. 


The unique role of American research universities 
in advancing science and technology has kept the 
United States in the forefront of innovation and 
product development. Research dollars from 
federal and state agencies, corporations and 
foundations fuel much of the basic and applied 
research actixit)' of the Uni\ersit\' of Maryland at 
College Park's faculty' and graduate students. 

The university has unique facilities, research 
centers and institutes that attract new research 


•Forty-four percent of this year's freshman class has 
a high school grade point average of 3.5 or above. 

•ARCO's book, Ivi/ League Programs at Stale School 
Prices, rated the University Honors Program 
among the nine best in the nation. 

•U.S. Ni-ti's and World Report rated Maryland's 

business and engineering programs in the top 25 
among all public and private institutions. 

•Last year, faculty researchers at College Park were 
awarded almost $150 million in competitively 
fimded research and development awards, an 
increase of 83 percent since 1988. 

•No other university in the Mid-Atlantic region has 
more top 20 graduate programs in computer, 
mathematical, physical sciences, and engineering 
disciplines than College Park, according to a 
recent analysis by the National Research Council. 

projects and funding, as well as provide 
expanded knowledge in business, science and 
technology. The A. James Clark School of 
Engineering houses the Glenn L. Martin Wind 
Tunnel — the most advanced aerodynairuc 
testing facility of its kind on any university 
campus — and the Neutral Buoyancy Facility, 
which simulates weightlessness for space 
research, the only such facility on a university 
campus. Other specialized facilities include: 
Computer Vision Laboratory 
Bioprocess-scale up Laboratory 
Laboratory for Ion Beam Research 

and Application 
Superconductivity Research Center 
Laboratory for Plasma and Fusion Studies 
Psycholinguistics Laboratory 
Computer-assisted cartographic laboratories 
Developmental Psychology Laboratory 
Center on Aging 


Programs of public service are central to the 
overall mission of the university. This philosophy 
is reflected in the wide array of programs and 
initiaKves that benefit the state's business, 
agriculture, and education commuiuties. 

With more than 900 high technology firms in the 
three-county area of Montgomery, Prince 
George's and Frederick, the university has found 
abundant opportunity to extend its business and 
technology outreach prograrr\s to the region. 
Many of these programs are part of the 
Engineering Research Center, which operates the 
Technology Extension Service, the Technology 
Advancement Program, and Maryland Industrial 
Partnerships, all programs designed to provide 
Maryland entrepreneurs and small businesses 
with research facilities, teclmical assistance, 
administrative support, and access to technology 
that will advance their economic base. 

The Listitute for Systems Research has formed 
partnerships with major corporations, including 
Martin Marietta, Westinghouse, BFGoodrich, 
Hughes Aircraft, and Dupont to apply advanced 
systems research to solving industry problems in 
the fields of communications, manufacturing, 
controls and robotics. 

The Center for Renaissance and Baroque 
Studies works in conjunction with Maryland's 
high schools in using theater to explore 
personal and social issues relevant to today's 
society. Team Maryland also works with area 
public schools by having student athletes serve 
as mentors to young students. Each semester 
student athletes act as role models to as many as 
5,200 students. 

The University of Marj'land 

at College Park features a 

diversity of cultural and 

recreational activities. Four 

art galleries, more than 200 

annual musical 

performances, and countless 

dance and theater 

productions, expose 

audiences to the broadest 

range of programs in the 

arts. And intercollegiate, 

club, or intramural sports provide students of 

all levels an opporhinity to participate as 

spectators or athletes. 


The seven libraries at the university constitute 
the largest university research library' system in 
the Washington metropolitan area, providing 
\ital resources to researchers, visiting scholars, 
and businesses throughout the region. The 
libraries' holdings include over 2.2 million 
volumes, 19,309 subscriptions to periodicals, 
and nearly 4.8 million items available in 
microfilm format. CoUege Park libraries also 
offer several nationally and internationally 
recognized special collections such as the 
Lntemational Piano Archives at Maryland, the 
National Trust for Historical Preservation, the 
Katherine Anne Porter literary archive and the 
National Public Broadcasting Archives. 


With alumni clubs from Miami, Fla. to Taipei, 
Taiwan, the Alurruii Association strives to keep 
and strengthen ties between the vmiversity and 
its graduates. Member events such as pre-game 
parties, bull roasts, picnics, golf tournaments. 


dinner cruises and subscription to 
College Park magazine help keep 
alumni cormected to the university 
and to each other. All graduating 
seniors and successful master's and 
Ph.D. candidates receive a six-month 
free membership in the association. 


Graduates of the university go on to 
distinguished careers in a variety of 
fields. Chosen from thousands of qualified 
alumni, an inaugural group was inducted into 
the University of Maryland Alunvni Association 
Hall of Fame in April, 1995. They included 21 
outstanding individuals who have brought, 
and continue to bring, great honor to their alma 
mater. Their achievements are as varied as their 
li\es, but they all have one thing in common: a 
degree from the University of Maryland at 
College Park.

The University of Maryland Alumni 
Association Hall of Fame is located in the 
Commuter Lounge of the Stamp Student 
Union. Periodically, the Alumni Association 
will induct other graduates in to the Hall of 
Fame — its highest honor. 


Early commencement ceremonies at the 
University of Maryland were marked with 
great fanfare and celebration. The faculty gave 
huge banquets for the graduates the night 
before the event. The following morning, 
crowds gathered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occasion, attracting 
not only friends and relatives, but the 
fashionable elite of the day. At the ceremony, 
prayers were recited, speeches were made, and 
honorary degrees were awarded to 
distinguished figures from across the country. 
Finally, as the audience cheered and threw 
flowers, the graduates came forward to collect 
their Latin-inscribed degrees. 

Academic Costume 

The black caps and gowns worn by the 
students and faculty in the academic procession 
have been the traditional costume of scholars 
since the Middle Ages. The ordinary dress of 
the scholar, whether student or teacher, was 
similar to that of a cleric. Caps and gowns were 
probably worn to keep students warm in 
unheated buildings. Many medieval scholars 

were tonsured, like monks, and hoods served 
to co\'er their shaved heads until the skull cap 
later took its place. 

E\'en after the Civil War, most students at 
American universities wore caps and gowns 
daily while in residence. These varied in design 
imtil they were standardized by the American 
Intercollegiate Commission in 1894. At that 
time it was decided that all robes would be 
black. Colors on the trim of the gown were also 
standardized to indicate the scholar's academic

The tassel may also be colored to represent an 
academic discipline or it may be black. 
Officially, the tassel is permitted "to lie where it 
will" on the mortarboard. However, numerous 
institutions have adopted the practice of having 
degree candidates wear the tassel on the right 
front side at the start of the commencement 
ceremony and then shift them to the left side 
after degrees are awarded. 

Student Marshals 

Elected through a nomination process, student 
marshals are senior leaders who play an 
important role in the graduation ceremony. 
Student marshals assist in organizing the 
thousands of graduates, leading them smoothly 
through the commencement procession. They 
also supply extra caps and hoods, and bobby 
pins to keep headwear secure. May 1996 
marshals are listed on page 94 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

The senior gift is a university tradition dating 
back 84 years. The first senior gift, the iron gate 
entrance at the Rossborough Inn, was given by 
the class of 1910. As this year's gift from the 
graduating class, seniors have elected to donate 


funds for a new fountain to be placed in the 
center of the future traffic circle at the West 
Gate entrance off Stadium Drive. 

The purpose of the senior gift is twofold. Each 
year the senior class leaves behind a 
memorable legacy for new students and 
visitors, and provides the university' with a gift 
that enhances the campus atmosphere. 

Past senior gifts have included: the Testudo 
statue (Class of 1933), the lights around the 
"M" in the traffic circle on Campus Drive (Class 
of 1986), and the restoration of the Chapel 
chimes and clock face (Class of 1992). 


A degree is awarded for the successful 
completion of a course of study. There are more 
than 1,600 different academic degrees currently 
conferred by colleges and universities 
nationwide. The University of Maryland at 
College Park offers degrees in 98 
undergraduate majors, 87 master's programs, 
and 68 doctoral programs. 

The Doctor's Degree 

The doctor's degree represents the most 
advanced earned degree conferred by 
American institutions. There are two distinct 
types: the practitioner's degree and the 
research degree. The first type represents 
advanced training for the practice of various 
professions, principally Doctor of Medicine, 
Juris Doctor, and Doctor of Pharmacy. These 
degrees do not involve the completion of 
original research by the student. The University 
of Maryland, at the professional school in 
Baltimore, awarded the first two dental degrees 

in history on March 9, 1841, and in\'ented the 
name of the degree. Doctor of Dental Surgery 

The second type is the research doctorate 
representing prolonged periods of advanced 
study. A dissertation which usually accom- 
panies the study is intended to contribute 
substantially to the body of knowledge on the 
subject. The most important of these, the Doc- 
tor of Philosophy, no longer has an implication 
of philosophy for its holder, but represents 
advanced research in any of the major fields of 
knowledge. It was first awarded in the United 
States in 1861 by Yale University. The 
University of Mar)'land awarded a Ph.D. for 
the first time in 1920. 

The Master's Degree 

The master's degree is an academic honor 
bestowed upon students who have successfully 
completed work bevond the baccalaureate. A 
thesis and an oral examination are usually 
required. In 1920, the University of Maryland 
awarded its first Master of Arts (M.A.) and 
Master of Science (M.S.) degrees in fields other 
than agriculture. 

The Bachelor's Degree 

The bachelor 's degree represents the 
completion of a four-year course of college- 
level study and is the oldest academic degree 
awarded by American institutions of higher 
learning. It was first conferred in America in 
1642 on the first nine graduates of Harvard 
College. Maryland Agriculture College, which 
later became the University of Maryland at 
College Park, awarded its first Bachelor of Arts 
(B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in 1862. 

Honorary Degree 

Each year the University of Maryland at 
College Park awards honorary degrees to 
persons approved by a campus committee, the 
provost, the president, and the university's 
Board of Regents. Through the bestowal of 
these degrees, the university seeks to recognize 
outstanding achievement in government, 
business, education, science, and the arts. In 
recent years the committee has sought to 
recognize indi\'iduals in the greater 
Washington-Baltimore area who have made 
significant contributions to an improved 
quality of life in the region. Honorary degrees 
have also been awarded to graduates of College 
Park who have gone on to enjoy notably 
successful careers. Past honorary degree 
recipients include Isaac Asimov (1977), Eubie 
Blake (1978), Bill Cosby (1992), Hugh Downs 
(1988), Ralph Ellison (1974), Milton Eisenhower 
(1958), Jim Henson (1978), Hubert H. 
Humphrey (1965), Lyndon Baines Johnson 
(1963), and Andrew Wyeth (1964). 


If one word could be used to describe today's student speaker it would be 
"driven." In only nine semesters at Maryland, Beth Lowenthal has 
accumulated 154 credits, earned a B.A. in French (business concentration), 
and minors in pre-pharmacy, German and Spanish. Her grade point 
average is a perfect 4.0. Incredibly, she has maintained her academic excellence 
while working nearly 40 hours a week. So what makes this Ellicott City, Md.- 
native so intent? 

After the untimely death of her father when she was 16, Lowenthal was forced 
to grow up quickly. She skipped her senior year of high school to enter 
Maryland early, only to find her scholarship money denied because of a since- 
rectified technicality. Lowenthal took on the challenge. She kept her summer job 
as a pharmacy technician at Giant Supermarket and through the help of her 
mother, made it through her first year at Maryland. She was awarded a 
Maryland Distinguished Scholarship, which paid for her tuition, but she kept 
her job at Giant, often working until midnight or arriving before dawn, to pay 
her daily expenses. Rather than a hinderance to her college experience, 

Lowenthal says working was a good complement to her education: it taught her responsibility, how to deal with 
a variety of people and gave her a valuable taste of the real world. "Work should be a part of everyone's 
education," she says. "How else will you know what the real world is like if you don't get out there and 
experience it?" 

Lowenthal desires to continue with both her work and her 
education. She has applied for the Pharm. D. program at 
the University of Maryland at Baltimore, and plans on 
keeping her job at Giant. "Soon I'll have 10 years with the 
company and 1 can retire," she jokes. Ultimately, she hopes 
to combine her unique mix of language skills and science 
to conduct research for an international pharmaceutical 

Lowenthal is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa 
Phi and Golden Key honor societies, and Phi Sigma Iota, 
the International Foreign Language Honor Society. 

The graduating senior is amazed that she's been able to 
accomplish so much during her time at Maryland. "Every 
semester I would look back and wonder, how did 1 ever 
get through?" 






After nine jam-packed semesters, it's obvious Lowenthal 
didn't just "get through"; she has excelled.

Michael Guillen 
Honorary Doctor 
of Public Service 

Joined by 

Kermit the Frog 


"Sesame Street's" Elmo 



ne of today's commencement speakers taught at Harvard. A second grew up in a 
swamp and guest-hosted "The Tonight Show." The third is a perpetual 2 1/2-year- 
old who refers to himself only in the third person. 

What this unique trio has in common are a commitment to education, a passion for the 
environment, and a childlike curiosity they hope to inspire in others. 

Michael Guillen, science editor for ABC's "Good Morning America" and science correspondent 
for "Nightline," was a physics and mathematics instructor at Harvard University before leaving 
the ivy of academia for the lights of the television camera. Since then, his reports have enlightened 
viewers about science, technology, and history from around the world. 

And then there's the frog. 

The most famous Muppet creation of Maryland alumnus Jim Henson, '60, Kermit the Frog has 
entertained and educated audiences around the world through appearances on "Sesame Street," 
"The Muppet Show," and a string of successful feature films, including 
the most recent, "Muppet Treasure Island." Among other projects, 
Kermit has released numerous record albums, authored the book. One 
Frog Can Make a Difference: Kermit's Guide to Life in the '90s, guest-hosted 
"Larrv King Live," and served as the Grand Marshal of the 
Tournament of Roses Parade. He is joined today by fellow Muppet 
Elmo, the popular small furry red monster from "Sesame Street." 

While Kermit and Elmo are known for 

educating television viewers about the 

simple but important things in life, 

Michael Guillen has spent his life 

translating the scientific into the 

simple. He took his audience under the 
Kermit English Channel as the first television 

correspondent to cross through the just-completed Chunnel. He 
was also the first broadcast journalist to be allowed inside 
Arizona's controversial Biosphere-2 following the emergence of its 
eight-person crew. He has traveled to the South Pacific, where he 
filed reports on rare geysers and mud flats in New Zealand and on 
the desperate efforts to protect Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Other assignments ha\e 
taken him to Israel's guiru-an caves to trace the origins of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and to 
Costa Rica's Monteverde Cloud Forest, a unique tropical forest threatened by development. 


Guillen has also covered some of the biggest man-made and natural disaster stories. He journeyed 
to Kuwait to cover the oil fires and their effect on the environment. He traveled against the flow of 
humanity to report on the explosions of Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines and Mt. Unzcn in Japan 
He also visited the epicenters of San Francisco's historic Loma Prieta earthquake and Southern 
California's Yucca Valley quake, the largest in 40 years. 

In the past year, Guillen broke several high profile news stories. He originated the idea of doing a 
scientific recount of the Million Man March, leading to sweeping changes in the U.S. Park Service's 
counting techniques. He also broke the story of the CIA's use of psychic spies and reported on a 
possible new energy source call the Patterson Cell. Guillen .sat down for a rare one-on-one with 
Hillarv Clinton on the greening of the White House and hitched a ride with a real-life tornado 
chasing couple. 

His ongoing features include "Invention Mention," which turns a spotlight on American 
ingenuity; "Hard to Believe," which critiques the latest gadgets; and "Ask Michael Guillen," which 
lets viewers appear on "Good Morning America" to ask that question they've always wondered 

This vear, Guillen made his debut in cvberspace as "Dr. Universe," interacting with children as part of 
America Online's and ABC-TV's award-winning kids' magazine, Kidziuc. He is also the host of a new PBS 
television series called "Great Minds" ami his book Five Equations that Changed the World, published by Walt 
Disney, was picked by Publishers Weekly as one of the best books of 1995. 

Guillen has also hosted two children's television shows, "Prejudice: Answering Children's Questions" 
(1992) and "War in the Gulf: Answering Children's Questions" (1991 ) for ABC News, which won an Alfred I. 
duPont-Columbia University Award. 

Guillen, who received his doctoral degree in astronomy, mathematics and physics from Cornell University, 
has received numerous awards for broadcast work, including two Emmys, three Ohio State Awards, an 
Action for Children's Television Award and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Media 
Award for overall excellence.

Kermit and Elmo's 
appearance precedes the 
kickoff of the university's 
Muppet Exhibition, open- 
ing on Feb. 6, 1997 and 
nmning through March 21. 
"The Vision of ]im 
Henson" will trace the 
history of the Muppets and 
serve as the centerpiece for 
a series of Muppct-rclated 
events and activities, 
including a presentation by 
Jane Henson, '55, co- 
founder of the Muppets 
with late-husband Jim 
Henson. The two met 
while they were both 
students at the University 
of Marvland.

student Marshals 

The Senior Marshal Program, began in 1991, as an opportunity 
for the campus community to acknowledge outstanding 
seniors at their commencement. The students selected to be 
marshals were nominated by faculty, administrators and staff 
for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the 
University of Maryland. We are proud to recognize these truly remark- 
able students.
