William E. Kirwan 

Congratulations on achieving this milestone in your educational 
pursuit. On behalf of the University of Maryland Alumni 
Association, I would like to add our very best wishes to those you 
have received 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, Kathy Rosenberger. Our gift 
to you on this special day is a six-month complimentary membership in the 
alumni associahon. In the next few weeks, you will receive your membership 
card and more information on the list of benefits and services you receive by 
virtue of your membership. 

Wherever your plans take you following graduation, you'll find 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 particular 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 Maryland. 

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

* August and December graduates combined 

Today you complete the journey 
that 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 tra\'el? 

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 

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 University of Maryland 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 you can always return.

The University of 


The flagship of Maryland's ll-institution system of 
liigher learning, the University of Maryland, 
College Park, is the most comprehensive institution 
of higher education, research and service in the 
state. The university offers 100 undergraduate 
majors, 88 master's programs, and 69 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, the University of Maryland 
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 


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 the world, 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, 
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 modem 
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 
Universit)' of Mar\'land. The entity eventually 
grew to include campuses in Baltimore Count\-, 
the Eastern Shore and University College, a 
continuing education institution. 

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

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


The lu'uque 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 activity of the Uni\ ersity of Maryland's 
faculty eind graduate students. 

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


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

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

»U.S. Nnvs ntid World Report rated Maryland's 

business, education and engineering programs in 
the top 25 among all public and private 

•Last year, faculty researchers at the University of 
Maryland, College Park, were awarded more 
than $155 million in competitively funded 
research and development awards. 

• No other university in the Mid-Atlantic region has 
more top 20 graduate programs in computer, 
mathematical, physical sciences and engineering 
disciplines than Maryland, 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 aerodynamic 
testing facility of its kind on any imiversity 
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 pubUc service are central to the 
overall mission of the university. This philosophy 
is reflected in the wide array of programs and 
initiatives that benefit the state's business, 
agriculture and education communities. 

With more than 900 high technology firms in the 
tri-county area of Montgomery, Prince George's 
and Frederick, the university has found abundant 
opportunity to extend its business and 
technology outreach programs 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, technical assistance, 
administrative support, and access to technology 
that will advance their economic base. 

The Institute 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 
scKiety. 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, reaching out 
to some 15,000 students annually. 

The University of Maryland, 

College Park, features a 

diversity of cxiltxiral 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 opportunity to 

participate as spectators or athletes. 


The seven libraries at the university' constitute 
the largest vmiversity research libran,' system in 
the Washington metropolitan area, providing 
vital resources to researchers, visiting scholars, 
and businesses throughout the region. The 
libraries' holdings include over 2.5 million 
volumes, 27,136 journal subscriptions and 
nearlv 5.1 million microform items. College 
Park Libraries also offer several nationally and 
internationally recognized special collections 
such as the International Piano Archives at 
Maryland, the National Trust for Historical 
Preservation Library Collection, the Katherine 
Anne Porter papers, the National Public 
Broadcasting Archives and the Gordon W. 
Prange Collection. 


With alumni clubs from Miami to Taipei, 
Taiwan, the Alumni Association stTi\'es to keep 
and strengthen ties between the university and 
its graduates. Member events such as pre-game 
parties, bull roasts, picnics, golf tournaments. 

dinner cruises and subscriptions to 
College Park magazine and the 
biannual Maryland Alumni 
supplement help keep alumni 
connected 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 Alumni 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 
lives, but they all have one thing in common: a 
Uni\ersity of Maryland, College Park, diploma.

Early corrunencement 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 facult\' 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 cover their shaved heads until the skull cap 
later took its place. 

Even after the Civil War, most students at 
American universities wore caps and gowns 
daily while in residence. These varied in design 
until 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 
A list of department colors follows:

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. December 1997 
marshals are listed on page 68 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

The senior gift is a university tradihon dating 
back 87 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 create 

a commemorative brick courtyard on the west 
side of Memorial Chapel, formed with bricks 
bearing the names of Class of 1997 graduates. 

The purpose of the senior gift is twofold. Each 
year the seruor 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 aroimd 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, 
College Park, offers degrees in 100 
undergraduate majors, 88 master's programs, 
and 69 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 tn'o dental degrees 

ever on March 9, 1841, and invented 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 Maryland 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 beyond 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 Agricultiu-e 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 awards 
honoreuy 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 individuals in the greater 
Washington-Baltimore area who have made 
significant contributions to an improved 
quaUty 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 honorar)' degree 
recipients include Isaac Asimov (1977), Eubie 
Blake (1978), Hillary Rodham Clinton (1996), 
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). 


Anthropology professor William Taft Stuart, who 
chaired Raymond Peters' honors thesis committee, 
says that today's student speaker is one of the most 
mature young scholars with whom he has ever 
worked. Despite that accolade, in the years before he arrived at 
Maryland as a transfer student in 1995, Peters little thought that the 
letters B.A. or B.S. would ever follow his name. Instead, it seemed 
his future would focus on the three-letter combinations he dealt 
with every day as an airlines baggage handler: ORD, LAX, BWI. 

In 1983, Peters withdrew from North Carolina State University after 

two semesters. Although he had done well in high school, 

university work neither interested nor engaged him. Instead, he 

took full-time employment with Piedmont Airlines, eventually 

moving to Perisacola, Fla., in 1989. It was there, where Peters lived 

five minutes away from the beach, that he decided to take advantage of his job's travel benefits, see the world, 

and "surf as much as possible." 

The year before, Peters had married Patricia Garrett, who began a master's program in psychology at the 
University of West Florida when the couple mo\ed to Pensacola. Prompted by his wife's urging and his own 
interest, Peters took an undergraduate sociology course. Liking the intellectual challenge, he soon branched out 
to psychology and cultural anthropology'. Living in Florida also allowed the couple to spend more time with his 
wife's Vietnamese relatives, many of whom li\ed in Orlando. Increasingly, Peters found that what he was 
learning in the classroom helped him perceive and articulate the contrasts between his American and 
Vietnamese families. 

An extremely organized man, Peters knows serendipity plays a role in individuals' lives. During several trips to 
rural Bali, Indonesia, he got to know local people well. Late one afternoon, while sitting on the front steps of a 
house in the countr)'side, Peters says he realized that the intellectual questions that truly excited him were those 
that asked why people from different cultures behaved differently or had different expectations of each other 
and of life. Anthropology, he believed, would provide the tools for that explorahon. 

After Patricia Garrett Peters finished her master's program and entered the University of Maryland's doctoral 
program in human dex'elopment, Peters di\ided his time between Pensacola and Maryland. He would work 
double shifts two or three days a week in Florida, then head north to attend classes at Montgomery College. 

More than a dozen vears after his abbreviated university experience, Peters enrolled as an anthropology major at 
Maryland. Drawing upon his experiences with his wife's extended family and a trip to Vietnam in 1993, his 
senior thesis focuses on kinship and culture change among resettled Vietnamese. The work has so engaged him 
that he hopes to pursue graduate study. Says Peters, "Life is learning about and from other people."

Leonard J. 
Elmore 78 



Since his days as a Manland basketball 
powerhouse, Len Elmore has been a generous 
and spirited contributor to his alma mater. In 
his current roles as member of the university's 
Board of Visitors, the University of Maryland 
Foundation Board of Directors and, most recently, as co- 
chair, with his wife, GaU Segal Elmore, of the Bold 
Vision*Bright Future Scholarship Campaign, Elmore 
exemplifies the interest and loyalty of many of the 
University of Maryland's successful alumni. 

His role model since childhood, he says, was Paul 
Robeson. "He was a true neo-Renaissance individual. I 
was amazed at a life that could have so many facets. He 
was an All- American athlete in college, a lawyer, an 
actor, an accomplished concert singer." Elmore has developed his ovsti array of facets, as a 
collegiate Ail-American, a professional basketball player for nine years, a Harvard-trained lawyer, 
an assistant district attorney, a sports commentator and principal at a sports management firm. 
He is not taking singing lessons, he insists. 

One of his goals at Precept Sports, where he managed basketball stars like Walt Williams '92, and 
Harold Miner from USC and Olympic gold medalist Dominique Dawes, was to guide his clients 
on a path that would prepare them to take leadership roles in their communities during and after 
their sports careers. "I've always had the philosophy that whatever it is you give, that is what you 
are going to get," says Elmore. "If you don't give something back, you become one-dimensional. 
Most careers are finite. When you come to take your place among the community, you want 
respect, and if you haven't done anything during the time you are at the top to get it, you're not 
going to get it when the status is gone." 

Currently a partner with Patton Boggs L.L.P., Elmore represents client interests in business 
development and sports law issues, and continues in his role as sports commentator with ESPN. 
He was also appointed by Gov. Parris Glendening to the Tourism Development Board for the 
State of Marj'land, The University of Maryland is proud to present to him today a President's 
Citation for his public service and advocacy on behalf of higher education.

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.
