BEST WISHES AND CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL GRADUATES 




M ongratulations on the successful completion of your degrees! You and 

K your families have just reason to be proud of your reaching this impor- 

^ ^» tant milestone. 

As you leave "your" university, I would like you to know how much we, the faculty and 
staff, value your accomplishments as scholars, artists, athletes, and young leaders. You have 
enriched your lives and have enlarged the esteem of this institution. 

We have tried to provide you with a university experience where you could develop your 
academic interests, your special talents, and broaden your intellectual and cultural perspectives. 
Experience also shows that the friends and associations you have made while here will enrich 
your lives in many and varied ways. I urge you to stay connected and take full advantage of 
being a member of the Maryland family. 

I hope that you will return to campus often and continue to support this institution and 
future generations of students at the flagship University of Maryland. Welcome to the univer- 
sity's family of alumni. 

Good luck to each and every one of you! 



Yours sincerely, 
CD. Mote, Jr. 
President 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



MESSAGE FROM THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 



M ongratulations on achieving this milestone in your educational pursuit. On 

M behalf of the University of Maryland Alumni Association, I would like to add 

^^^^ - ^r our very best wishes to those you have received from your faculty and other 
university friends. 

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 associa- 
tion president, Ed Fry. Our gift to you on this special day is a one-year complimentary mem- 
bership in the alumni association. 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 pro- 
fessional 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 
m.iv 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. 




Sincerely, 

Joan Patterson '66 

Executive Director, University of Maryland Alumni Association

Today you complete the jour- 
ney that was undertaken sev- 
eral years ago, arriving proudly 
at the threshold of a new lite. 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 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 jour- 
ney to which you can always return. 




Congratulations.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




The flagship of Mary- 
land's 1 1 -institution 
system of higher learn- 
ing, the University ot Maryland, 
College Park, is the most compre- 
hensive institution of higher edu- 
cation, research and service in the 
state. The university offers 102 
undergraduate majors, 90 master's 
programs, and 70 doctoral pro- 
grams m 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. It is classified as a 
Research- 1 university by the 
Carnegie Foundation by virtue of 
the range of its baccalaureate pro- 
grams, the amount of federal sup- 
port 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 Uni- 
versities, the University of Mary- 
land ranks among the top in the 
percentage of African- American 
undergraduate students. In addi- 



tion, the university has the largest 
number of African-American and 
other minority faculty members 
among its peers. 

History 

The University of Maryland was 
founded in 1807 in Baltimore as a 
faculty-owned College of Medi- 
cine. The medical school was con- 
sidered one of the top schools in 
the country, attracting notable pro- 
fessors and lecturers from through- 
out the world. In its beginning, 
tuition cost $140, grades were sent 
home weekly to parents, and stu- 
dents could obtain room and 
board for $300 annually. 

Five years later, the growing 
institution was renamed the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. Despite the 
name, the university was not con- 
sidered a state institution as it was 
still owned and operated by fac- 
ulty. 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 1 859, the Maryland Agricul- 
tural College, which would evolve 
into the University of Maryland, 
College Park, was opened under a 
charter secured by a group of 
Maryland planters in 1 856. In 
addition to spending one hour 
each day hoeing or plowing on 
the college farm, students took a 
broad range o( courses in ancient 
and modern languages, natural sci- 
ences, English and mathematics. 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



After .1 disastrous fire on campus in 
1912, the state acquired the college 
and rebuilt it. 

In 1920, the state legislature 
combined the College Park insti- 
tution with the professional 
schools in Baltimore to form an 
expanded University of Maryland. 
The entity eventually grew to 
include campuses in Baltimore 
County, the Eastern Shore and 
University College, a continuing 
education institution. 

The following decades saw the 
increasing growth of student pop- 
ulation, excellence in programs 
and curricula, and the burgeoning 
of the University of Maryland, 
College Park, into a nationally rec- 
ognized research institution. 

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

Research 

The unique role of American 
research universities in advancing 
science and technology has kept 
the United States in the forefront 
ot innovation and product devel- 
opment. Research dollars from 
federal and state agencies, corpora- 
tions and foundations fuel much of 
the basic and applied research 



activity of the University of Mary- 
land's faculty and graduate students. 

The university has unique 
facilities, research centers and insti- 
tutes that attract new research pro- 
jects 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 univer- 
sity campus — and the Neutral 
Buoyancy Facility, which simulates 
weightlessness for space research, 
the only such facility on a univer- 
sity campus. 

Other specialized facilities at 
the university include: 

• Computer Vision Laboratory 

• Bioprocess-scale up Laboratory 

• Laboratory for Ion Beam 
Research and Application 

• Superconductivity Research 
Center 

• Laboratory for Plasma and 
Fusion Studies 

• Psychohnguistics Laboratory 

• Computer-assisted cartographic 
laboratories 

• Developmental Psychology 
Laboratory 

• Center on Aging 

Service 

Programs of public service are 
central to the overall mission of 
the university. This philosophy is 
reflected in the wide array of pro- 
grams and initiatives that benefit 
the state's business, agriculture and 



University Highlights 

• In fiscal year 1998, grant and contract awards to the 
University of Maryland reached an all-time high of 
$205 million, an increase of 32 percent over the pre- 
vious year's record of $155 million. 

• The September 1998 issue of Kiplinger's Personal 
Finance Magazine named Maryland one of the top 25 
values among the nation's public universities. 

• In its last ranking of undergraduate programs, U.S. 
News & World Report placed the business and engi- 
neering schools among the nation's top 25 in their 
disciplines. In graduate rankings, the A.James Clark 
School of Engineering, the School of Public Affairs 
and the College of Education all ranked in the top 
25. And for the first time, the Smith School of Busi- 
ness achieved top 25 recognition from Business Week 
magazine in October. 

• The University Honors Program was spotlighted as 
an "Ivy League experience" at a bargain price in the 
U.S. News & World Report 12th annual guide to 
"America s Best Colleges." 

• The university was picked as one of "America's 100 
Most Wired Colleges" by Black Issues in Higher Educa- 
tion. In December 1996, Maryland became one of the 
few institutions in the nation to provide in-room 
Internet access to all of its residents. 

• As Washingtonian magazine stated in a December 
1997 feature article on the rise of the University of 
Maryland. "The Terps are moving up, and we're not 
just talking basketball."

education communities. 

With more than 900 high 
technology firms in the tri-county 
area of Montgomery, Prince 
George's and Frederick, the uni- 
versity has found abundant oppor- 
tunity to extend its business and 
technology outreach programs to 
the region. Many of these pro- 
grams are part of the Engineering 
Research Center, which operates 
the Technology Extension Service, 
the Technology Advancement Pro- 
gram, 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 prob- 
lems in the fields of communica- 
tions, 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, reaching out to some 
15,000 students annually. 

The University of Maryland 
features a diversity of cultural and 
recreational activities. Four art gal- 
leries, more than 200 annual musi- 
cal 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 Libraries 

The seven libraries at the univer- 
sity constitute the largest university 




research library system in the 
Washington metropolitan area, 
providing vital resources to 
researchers, visiting scholars, and 
businesses throughout the region. 
The libraries' holdings include 
more than 2.7 million volumes, 
28,277 journal subscriptions and 



nearly 5.2 million microfilm items. 
College Park Libraries also offer 
several nationally and internation- 
ally recognized special collections 
such as the International Piano 
Archives at Maryland, the National 
Trust for Historical Preservation 
Library Collection, the Kathenne 
Anne Porter papers, the National 
Public Broadcasting Archives and 
the Gordon W Prange Collection. 

The Alumni Association 

With alumni clubs from Miami to 
Taipei. Taiwan, the Alumni Associ- 
ation strives to keep and to 
strengthen ties between the uni- 
versity and its graduates. Member 
events such as pre-game parties, 
bull roasts, picnics, golf tourna- 
ments, dinner cruises and subscrip- 
tions to College Park magazine and 
the biannual Maryland Alumni sup- 
plement help keep alumni con- 
nected to the university and to 
each other. All graduating seniors 
and successful master's and Ph.D. 
candidates receive a one-year free 
membership in the association. 

Distinguished Alumni 

Graduates of the university go on 
to distinguished careers in a vari- 
ety of fields. Chosen from thou- 
sands 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 University of 
Maryland. College Park, diploma.

Customs of Commencement 

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 gath- 
ered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occa- 
sion, 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 ordi- 
nary dress of the scholar, whether 
student or teacher, was similar to 
that of a cleric. Caps and gowns 



were probably worn to keep stu- 
dents warm in unheated buildings. 
Many medieval scholars were ton- 
sured, like monks, and hoods 
served to cover their shaved heads 
until the skuD 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 dis- 
cipline. A list of department colors 
follows: 

Agriculture: Maize 

Arts, Letters, Humanities: White 

Business Administration, 
Commercial Science: Drab 

Dentistry: Lilac 

Economics: Copper 

Education: Light Blue 

Engineering: Orange 

Fine Arts, Architecture: Brown 

Forestry: Russet 

Home Economics: Maroon 

Journalism: Crimson 

Law: Purple 

Library Science: Lemon 

Medicine: Green 

Music: Pink 

Nursing: Apricot 

Oratory, Speech: Silver Gray 

Pharmacy: Olive 

Philanthropy: Rose 

Philosophy: Dark Blue 



Public Administration, 

Foreign Service: Peacock Blue 
Public Health: Salmon 
Physical Education: Sage Green 
Science: Golden Yellow 
Social Work: Citron 
Theology and Divinity: Scarlet 
Veterinary Sciences: Gray 

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. How- 
ever, 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. Stu- 
dent marshals assist in organizing 
the thousands of graduates, leading 
them smootltly through the com- 
mencement procession. They also 
supply extra caps and hoods, and 
bobby pins to keep headwear 
secure. December 1998 marshals 
are listed on page 69 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

The senior gift is a university tra- 
dition dating back 88 years. The 
first senior gift, the iron gate 
entrance at the Rossborough Inn, 
was given by the Class of 1910 
(although the gate itself was not 



WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



erected until 1941). As this year's 
gift from the graduating class, 
seniors have elected to commission 
a life-size bronze sculpture of 
Muppets creator. Jim Henson, '60, 
and his amphibian alter ego, Ker- 
mit the Frog. Plans call for the 
statue to be placed in front of the 
Adele H. Stamp Student Union. 

The purpose of the senior gift 
is twofold. Each year the senior 
class leaves behind a memorable 
legacy for new students and visi- 
tors, and provides the university 
with a gift that enhances the cam- 
pus 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 
ot the Memorial Chapel chimes 
and clock face (Class of 1992). 

Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the suc- 
cessful completion of a course of 
study. There are more than 1,600 
different academic degrees cur- 
rently conferred by colleges and 
universities nationwide. The Uni- 
versity ot Maryland offers degrees 
in 102 undergraduate majors,90 
master's programs, and 70 doctoral 
programs. 

The Doctor's Degree 

The doctor's degree represents the 
most advanced earned degree con- 
ferred by American institutions. 
There are two distinct types: the 
practitioner's degree and the 



research degree. The first type rep- 
resents advanced training for the 
practice of various professions, 
principally Doctor of Medicine. 
Juris Doctor, and Doctor of Phar- 
macy These degrees do not 
involve the completion of original 
research by the student. The Uni- 
versity ot Maryland, at the profes- 
sional school in Baltimore, awarded 
the first two dental degrees ever 
on March 9, 1841, and invented 
the name of the degree. Doctor of 
Dental Surgery (D.D.S.). 

The second type is the research 
doctorate representing prolonged 
periods of advanced study. A dis- 
sertation 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 
Doctor of Philosophy, no longer 
has an implication of philosophy 
tor 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 Uni- 
versity 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 con- 
ferred 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 o( 
Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Sci- 
ence (B.S.) in 1862.

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 



Three years after the fact, the tale of Scott O'Grady seems to be the stuff of leg- 
end and folklore. In June of 1995, his F-16 was downed by a Soviet-made anti- 
aircraft missile while he enforced a NATO no-fly zone policy over Bosnian 
skies. He spent six harrowing days eluding enemy troops in the forests of Bosnia, camouflaging 
himself in dirt and leaves, drinking rainwater out of plastic baggies and sometimes from his 
own sodden socks, and feasting on leaves, grass and the occasional ant. When news of his res- 
cue by the U.S.S. Kearsage Marine helicopter on the morning ofjune 8, 1995, reached home 
shores, the nation released a sigh of relief and a resounding cheer. 

Upon his return to the United States, the Air Force captain was feted by the masses, the 
media and the White House itself, all of whom hailed him as a hero. But O'Grady never used 
the word himself. 

"Most of the world's heroes are unsung," he wrote in Return With Honor (Doubleday, 1995), 
the bestselhng narrative of his life-altering experience. "It's heroic to dare to make a difference 
in the world." 

O'Grady 's ordeal certainly made a difference in his own view of life. "That day, five miles 
up, with death at my front door, I found my key to life," he wrote. He realized that only three 
things really mattered in life: faith in God, loved ones and good health. His unshakable founda- 
tion in religion and devotion to his family and friends speak volumes of his true heroic nature, 
as much as any survival story might. 

O'Grady received his Bachelor of Science (Aeronautical) in 1989 from Embry Riddle 
Aeronautical University in Prescott, Ariz. That same year, he was commissioned through the 
Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps Program. Currently, O'Grady is an instructor with 
the Joint Survival Agency at Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane, Wash., and serves as a 
national spokesperson for St.Jude's Children's Research Hospital. In addition to Return With 
Honor, he has published Basher Five-Two, a recounting of his adventure for younger readers.

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Amy Schlom '98 



Marketing major Amy Schlom believes that American business reflects soci- 
ety's values, and she is determined to bring changes to both. While she 
admits some uncertainty as to how to go about it, who better to try than 
this 4.0, Phi Beta Kappa, Beta Gamma Sigma, multi-scholarship and award-winning honors 
student described by one faculty member as a rare example of '"pure nobility." 

Schlom believes that "commerce and economics are transforming human awareness" and 
that what is needed now is "not a merely linear progression in thinking, but a paradigm shift. 
The question before us is how to manage this transition so that humanity's long-sought vision 
of peace and prosperity is realized." 

Schlom's views are not those traditionally associated with business training, but apart from 
her facility with mathematical and economic concepts (she found a recent exam in which she 
had to learn a computer language, answer logic questions, and write code, "fun"), she did not 
always consider a career in business. A childhood spent "sketching houses and drawing floor 
plans," led Schlom to first enter Maryland as an architecture major. 

Now she is building foundations of a different kind. Community and individual well-being 
are priorities for Schlom, and her desire to make a difference as quickly as possible led her to 
business. "I feel good when I tell people I work for Fannie Mae," where she has interned since 
1996. And when people respond that it must be fun to "work for the candy company," Schlom 
explains that she's not employed by the Chicago-based Fanny May, but by the Washington, 
D.C., group working to increase home-ownership among low-income Americans. 

Schlom believes firmly that in the years ahead, the ability to "promote the general welfare," 
will be centered in the business world rather than in the political arena. "People in the business 
world are more powerful than politicians," she says. "If business leaders aren't pioneers, I don't 
think it's going to be done."
