We are a trifle awed when we think of the responsibilities automatically 
placed upon us when we undertook the editing of this book, for we realize 
that there are a number of obligations which we have to fulfill. We present 
this book with the fervent hope that none of these obligations have been 

It would be deviating a trifle from the truth to say that our task has 
always been a pleasure. The editing of a school annual can be an arduous 
task at times. But if we could be sure that this, the 1937 SHORTHORN, 
would be worthy of its predecessors, its class and its school, we could rest 
with the feeling that our work had not been in vain. So, with these thoughts 
in mind, we present to you, in behalf of the class of 1937, this volume of 

The Editors. 











As a student at North Carolina State College from which he graduated 
in 1917, he gained prominence as a scholar, leader, athlete. 

He was Swine Specialist for the state of Massachusetts from 1917 to 1913, 
after which he was appointed Assistant Professor of Animal Husbandry at 
our college. From this position he advanced to Head of the Department of 
Animal Husbandry and Head of the Division of Agriculture. 

He is the author of the textbook Breeding and Improvement of Farm 
Animals, a standard work which is used in about 35 colleges and universities. 
He is in great demand as a public speaker, and as a hobby, he plays golf 
much too well. 

Professor Rice married Laura Bussels of Fernandino, Florida, in August 
1921. They have two very charming daughters, Zipporah, 15 years old, 
and Mary Virginia, 13. 

Mrs. Rice in her own right is a woman of accomplishments. She has 
an enviable reputation as an actress. You have the rare opportunity of 
seeing her portray the character Darlin' in your class play Wappin' Wharf. 
Her friends recognize her in real life as a darling: a most charming and 
gracious one.

To Professor Victor Arthur Rice 

The compliment which you pay to Professor Victor A. Rice is well de- 
served. Undoubtedly, however, this dedication to him of the written record 
of your college years has deeper significance. You are setting up a person- 
ality to serve as an ideal. You might well strive to imitate him in those 
qualities which he possesses so abundantly: 

PERSISTENCE. He sticks everlastingly to the task until it is mastered. 
Obstacles do not frustrate, he accepts their challenge and conquers them. 

INTELLIGENCE. He is efficient in the use of mental faculties, and by his 
example inspires other to do the same. This is the test of a great teacher. 

PROMPTNESS. He is a man of immediate action. Whatever is to be 
done is accomplished without procrastination. 

FORCEFULNESS. He is a super dynamic personality, — a whirlwind 
lecturer whose power overcomes classroom force of gravity. 

HELPFULNESS. He is ever ready to give advice and instruction in order 
to round out a more efficient, acceptable human being. 

INSPIRATION. He has the faculty to make one do his best, to rise above 
the commonplace, to reach those rare heights of excellence to which we all 
aspire, but so seldom attain. 

IMAGINATION. He has the insight of the artist and the philosopher. 
He sees deeply, and eloquently delineates his visions for others to see. 

COURAGE. He is not afraid to face facts, to assume responsibility, to 
make mistakes, to do his duty. 

This is the man you honor, — one worthy of emulation.

The breeder of domestic animals — 
an artist working with flesh and blood. 


William R. Burnham 

Windsor, Vermont 1917 

Big Bill Burnham, hailing from the Green Mountain 
State, has used a most unique method of pulling down 
good grades — spending many class hours in peaceful 
slumber. In spite of this Bill has been wide awake on 
his job as president of K. K. According to Bill, Vermont 
has SWEET soil, SWEET maple sugar, and some very 
nice' SWEET-hearts.

Gordon F. Cahill 

Springfield 1917 

K. K.'s chief night watchman and man about town 
deserves a place in our hall of fame for his unsur- 
passed knowledge of the fairer sex. June will see 
Grandy's losing one of the senior members of their 
selected clientele — and the school one of the its most 
liked students.

Arthur W. Ecklund 

Pittsfield 1917 

Swede is one of our silent, hardworking pals. This 
tall Nordic coming from the Berkshires has carved for 
himself an enviable niche in the memories of his class- 
mates because of a pronounced liking for Ayrshire 
Cattle, Connecticut Hill-billies, and Swedish women.

Edwin K. Fife 

West Springfield 1917 

Although Ed has been with us for only one year he 
has made himself many good friends. Active in extra- 
curricula activities, successful scholastically, and lucky 
in "Fords", Ed also has proved himself a diplomat off 
the campus. Whenever you see his light blue hat or 
his bright red hair, you can be sure of a smile just

Elwyn M. Fowles 

Southampton 1915 

Winn has the makings of a good Animal Husband- 
man, based on his success here at school and his 
many years of active 4-H Club work. He is to be 
admired for his achievements here accomplished vifith 
the hindrance of everyday chores at home. He is the 
most promising farmer in the group, as evidenced by 
his election to Master in the Grange.

Club, 1, 2. 

Douglas B. Graves 

Ashfield 1917 

In Mrs. Graves' son, Douglas, we have one of our 
strong, silent men. During his two years at Stockbridge 
he has made a marked success of studies and ath- 
letics. If Dame Rumor has it straight, Westfield, New 
Jersey, is going to lose one of its fair daughters to

Welland S. Horn 

Brandon, Vermont ^^^^ 

Coming from the hills of Vermont with a strong 
liking for "Dodies" (Aberdeen Angus cattle to you) 
Farmer Horn has been most quiet in the accomplishment 
of his daily tasks here. Among the many mysteries 
surrounding him is the outstanding one concerning the 
Amherst Tea Room. What? Why? Wherefore? 
Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Arthur W. Hoyt 

Merrimac 1915 

Little can be said of the freshman, Arthur Hoyt. 
However, he chose to live at the K. K. during his 
senior year and shortly after school opened last fall, 
he made his historical debut into social life — from 
which he hasn't quite recovered yet. Nevertheless, it 
has never interfered with his accomplishments here 
and at home. 
Kolony Klub, Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2; Baseball, 2. 


Alvin R. Kellogg, Jr. 

Feeding Hills 1917 

Tall, dark and handsome — with all the accessories 
and a winning way — it is little wonder that they say 
the girls of Feeding Hills are thrilled every time Al 
comes home. His ever present smile and good fellow- 
ship will always be remembered by his classmates. 
Cross Country, 2; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Roger P. Levreault 

South Hadley Falls 1918 

This commuting Frenchman is a jolly lad. A very, 
very romantic sort of a chap, he always finds it hard 
to suppress his emotions. Being a second Barney Old- 
field, he has developed a very close acquaintanceship 
with Tom Moran — the gendarme of our campus. 
Alpha Tau Gamma; Football, 1. 

William V. McCormack 

Arlington 1915 

Bill is Stockbridge's gentleman farmer. Although he 
comes from New York's social life and makes regular 
weekend trips to Boston, he has made a very enviable 
record in our school. Here's hoping that Fox Hill Farm 
will prove to be a happy place for a life's honeymoon, 
and that he will be as successful there as he was here. 
SHORTHORN, Statistical Editor, 2; Animal Husbandry 
Club, 1, 2. 

John A. McCoy 

Belmont 1914 

Coming from Belmont (at least once a week) John 
has been most influential in making our class periods 
interesting and amusing. FHs commanding way is ad- 
mired by all and will bring him out on top when the 
chips are counted. We'll be hearing a lot about John 
in the future. 

Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 


Ronald A. Nelson 

Bernardston 1914 

Cold New England winters will never be an obstacle 
to rugged Ronnie. Seen, but not heard, this local lad 
has done well for himself, and his future looks very 
bright. A great man with the horses, he is certain to 
plow a straight and admirable furrow in the field of 

Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

W. Nelson Newell 

Kaysville, Kentucky. 1916 

Cur Kentucky Colonel came up to us from the blue 
grass region with a practiced and appreciative eye for 
fine livestock, good crops, and beautiful women. A 
loyal son of his native and distant state, Bluegrass' 
career has been marked with those things which go to 
make successful farmers and breeders.

urer, 2; Sociology Club, 2; Baseball, 2. 

James P. Powers 

Green"wood 1914 

Spending his Freshman year with the class of '36, 
Jim has been with us but a few months. During that 
time he has been a constant source of amusement, good 
fellowship, and worthwhile advice. He is an ardent 
student, and as a result of his efforts is an authority 
on Animal Husbandry and co-eds. 

Kolony Klub; Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Malcolm Riddle 

Cambridge 1917 

Our best Spanish athlete and man about town, Mac 
has created for himself an unparalleled record. He's 
handy with horses and women and is enthusiastic 
about cooperatives. Whether he combines these abili- 
ties and enthusiasms or not, he is sure to overcome 
any obstacles he may encounter. 

Cheer Leader, 1, 2; Glee Club, 2; Animal Husbandry

Richard N. Buggies 

Hingham 1917 

A genuine sportsman, an accomplished wrestler, and 
a successful scholar — that's Dick. Probably the biggest 
"little man" on the campus, Dick has won a host of 
friends with his happy smile and pleasant ways. We're 
wondering why he chose to live up in the Sorority 
Country this year. Has Hingham no attractions? 

Wrestling, 1, 2; Sociology Club, 2; Animal Husbandry

Robert V. Shattuck 

Pepperell 1916 

An easy-going chap. Bob was a staunch supporter 
of the "early to bed, early to rise" theory. He was 
always punctual, and his good habits show their effect 
in his scholastic success. If we are any judges of 
human nature, it's our opinion that Bob is going to be 
a power in the agricultural field some day.

Harrison E. Smith, Jr. 

Lexington 1912 

We could always count on Smitty to say the right 
thing at the wrong time, and make our class periods 
more enjoyable. The oldest, most ambitious fellow in 
the group, coupled with being a veteran of the show 
circuit with world record cows — Smitty is bound to go 
to the top if experience and character are necessary 
for success. 

Animal Husbandry Club, 1, 2. 

Robert L. Smith 

Newburyport 1918 

October, 1935, saw a shy, blond lad from Newbury- 
port enroll at S. S. A. to study cows. June, 1937, will 
see a changed personality — one who knows his cows, 
and, no longer shy, also his women. Always full of 
fun and willing to try another blind date, he has never 
neglected his work, as his record shows.

David N. Stiles 

Southbury, Connecticut 1915 

The "Senator" from the Nutmeg State came north to 
learn how to farm. He has asked more questions, 
eaten more ice cream, and walked farther than anyone 
else on campus. It is said that when he retires he 
intends to re-write the dictionary.

Oliver H. TuUer 

West Simsbury, Connecticut 1916 

From the rolling hills of Connecticut to the level 
plains of Massachusetts in a quiet and unassuming 
way came Ollie to make many friends at S. S. A. 
Back with his cows and chickens, Ollie will achieve 
success if his determined nature and good fellowship 
continue to be a part of him. 
Animal Husbandry Club, 2. 

Arihur L. Whitcomb, Jr. 

Charlton 1916 

Although small in stature. Art more than made up 
for it with his over-grown good-naturedness. His ever- 
present smile, his unceasing search into the mysteries 
of wine, women, and song, and his clever handling of 
the faculty has made him a never-to-be forgotten mem- 
ber of our class. 

Boxing, 1; Baseball, 2. 

Carleton H. Whittaker 

Danvers 1917 

Besides his scholastic endeavors, Whit has spent a 
large portion of his time promoting A. T. G., tractors, 
and Danvers. His overflowing enthusiasm and sense 
of humor are bound to carry him far. Already experi- 
enced in his field, Whit will always be remembered for 
his authoritative discussions with the profs.

Harry R. Acker

A steady, stolid, dependable and truly likeable chap,

with a firm hand. With the little woman to guide him 

a successful future is inevitable.

Arne John Aho 

Maynard 1917 

Diminutive in stature. Shorty, the hard-boiled editor, 
possesses a mighty brain. His retentive memory and 
his knack for marshalling facts has made him one of 
the most brilliant students in Stockbridge. His out- 
standing ambition is to become the manager of a Co-

Alex J. Amenda 

Amherst 1917 

Quiet, but well liked, Alex, a home town boy, hasn't 
given us much opportunity to get acquainted. He is 
seldom seen at social functions on campus, but we 
understand that he is quite a night owl elsewhere. We 
recognize brawn coupled with dogged perseverance. 
Dairy Club, 2. 

Joseph J. Bauks 

Marlboro 1915 

Possessor of a melodious voice, and "willing to use it, 
Joe was a mainstay on the football squad. Joe has 
tried, to no avail, to set a good example for the rest of 
the class during the past two years. Even though he 
intends to make singing his life's work, we think he 
would make a better dairyman.

Irene Boguslawski 

Amherst 1918 

Entering her Freshman year with the reputation of a 
hardened man-hater, Buggy found herself the only girl 
in a class of twenty-four fellows. She handled them in 
a splendid manner, although we think the "rep" was 
lost in the process. Keep up the good work, Irene.

Frederic D. Callahan 

Hadley 1916 

Fred drives in every day from Hadley, bringing a 
cheery hello for everyone, together with a boisterous 

sense of humor. He is a stellar athlete, starring in 

basketball and baseball. All in all, Fred was a big 
addition to the Dairy class. 

Basketball, 1, 2; Dairy Club, 2. 

Harry I. Cunningham, Jr. 

Framingham 1917 

Huge of stature and caustic of tongue — that's our 
class clown who kept us jumping at a furious pace. 
Cunny, sometimes known as Prime, kidded anyone and 
everyone mercilessly. He is, however, a likeable chap 
and we are glad to claim him as one of us.

Armando Emanuele 

Revere 1916 

Independent and strong-willed, with original ideas, 
Armando is an industrious student. During his stay 
with us he seemed to be very unwilling to talk about 
himself. A broad-shouldered bulwark on the football 
squad, he is another letterman from the dairy class.

Alpheus O. Fulton 

Waltham 1916 

All seriousness in everything, Al, who has chosen 
lab work as the object of his endeavours, really should 
have been a minister. Although his name isn't Pete, 
he surely goes to town on the piccolo. We award Al 
with the title of all-class grind, but still he finds time for 
much cheerful banter.

Jamaica Plain 1916 

Smart, but som.ewhat self-conscious, Joe surprised us

with certain profs. But for all his modesty, he was a 
determined competitor for the hockey squad, and that 
same determination is applied to his studies and work.

Worcester 1916 

At first glance one would think Emmie only a quiet, 
well-mannered lad, but underneath he would find a 
perservering spirit v^hich wins him immediate recog- 
nition on the athletic field and in the classroom. A 
veteran dairyman, Emmie has been showing the boys 
how it's done for the past two years, and will continue 
that same practice in the future.

Samuel R. Lowery 

Arlington 1915 

Arlington's playboy and our fair-haired class bluffer, 
Sam could model for Esquire. He was a prominent 
figure on the track and the rink, and we're told that he 
is a second Fred Astaire on the dance floor. We'll 
remember Sam as a true friend, always ready with a 
new gag.

Palmer 1916 

Wavy-haired, well dressed, good-looking, keen, with 
a pleasant personality — this describes to perfection 
Don, the musician and socialite. With several queer, 
but still contemplative ideas about the origin of life on 
this planet, he has impressed us with his inquiring

Anthony R- Merino 

Waltham 1916 

Tony, the boy from Waltham, proceeds to mow down 
all opposition on the athletic field with the same pre- 
cision as others mow it down scholastically. A dark, 
handsome lad, Tony has a secret yearning to raise a 
moustache, but he hasn't quite the courage to stand 
the loudly spoken opinions of his classmates.

William E. Prindle 

Springfield 1914 

Short, diplomatic, and entirely original. Bill, a drum- 
mer-boy by choice, seems to find plenty to do at all 
times. He cuts a mean figure on the ice and ■we are 
told he doesn't do too badly on the dance floor. He 
will be remembered as a loyal friend, always ready 
"with a helping hand.

Tall, slow to move, but quick to think, Rosey has 
been the buffer for all practical and impractical jokes, 
but he always comes up smiling. We have all ad- 
mired his artistic nature, and his ability to converse 
intelligently with the professors. Good luck, Rosey, and 
don't cut yourself with that razor.

"Wakefield 1916 

Known as Tex because of his pronounced drawl, this 
lad with his very inquisitive nature, hopes to become 
a world traveler. Tex is interested in skiing and almost 
anything that provides excitement. With many years 
of practical experience in the dairy field, we feel sure 
that he will make a name for himself in this line.

A calm, unruffled friend, always on time and never

is written in the stars that he will go far in his chosen

with the other commuters. With all his experience at

The Dairy Club has been very active this season and has brought in 
many prominent men in the dairy field to discuss timely problems concerning 
the industry. Attendance has been large at these meetings, as the club is 
composed of both State and Stockbridge students. The Stockbridge freshmen, 
however, were conspicuous by their absence. 

A few of the speakers and their topics were as follows: 
W. H. Bronson — Dairying in Europe. 
C. Foskett — Experiences in Retailing Milk.

Flowers — they toil not, neither do they spin — 
yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed 
like one of these. 



Irving S. Anthony 

New Bedford 1916 

Self-confident, but with a likeable personality, pro- 
moter Tony missed his real calling — he should be selling 
bonds to old maids. With a fine memory for facts that 
many do not possess, Tony has made an excellent 
record here at Stockbridge. He was also a social suc- 
cess as a partner in the Morrice-Anthony combination. 

Football, 1; Horticultural Show, 1, 2. 

John M. Eastman 

Gill 1918 

Keen, always ready with a good story, John has 
made an enviable scholastic record. He has formed 
with Olson a companionship on campus that rivals the 
Anthony-Morrice combine. John travels to and from 
Greenfield every day and so we saw very little of him 
outside of class. With all the gadgets on his car, he 
should enjoy commuting. 

Bernard J. Jackimczyk 

Florence 1915 

A fine athlete, Jake lacked only size to make him- 
self a serious threat on the football field. He is modest 
and carefree, but with a natural talent for arranging 
flowers that should make him a very good florist. 
His pleasant disposition has kept him out of many in- 
volved discussions on floriculture and will certainly 
help him in the business world. 
Football, 1, 2. 

lack J. Kelleher 

Brockton 1913 

With a helping word where-ever needed and with 
warm friendliness toward everyone. Jack has become 
a familiar figure on campus. His Irish diplomacy and 
his unbounded confidence coupled with his seriousness 
and his willingness to learn will carry him ahead in 
the world. Do you know anyone in Maynard, Jack?

Peler W. Minkus 

Westfield 1915 

Easy-going, affable but determined, ex-govemment 
man Pete was the gay Lothario with the Amherst 
beauties. We think he must be cursed with a con- 
science because he at least worried about the studying 
he didn't do. Aqua vitae (whatever that is) was never 
his downfall, but it made him pleasant company. He 
is such a handsome lad that we don't blame the Amherst 
girls for succumbing to his charms. 

Kolony Klub, Historian, 2; Sociology Club, 2. 

James F. Morrice 

Vineyard Haven 1917 

Good-looking, wavy-haired Jim with his flair for art 
will probably become noted for his floral creations. As 
one of the three Stockbridge members of the band, he 
revealed that he is also gifted with musical talent. His 
popularity at Smith College is a sure sign that he will 
be successful as a retail florist. 

Alpha Tau Gamma, Vice-President, 2; Football, 1; 
Horticultural Club, 2; Band, 2. 

Marion W. Newhall 

Peabody 1917 

Good-natured Marion; her amiability was the quality 
that permitted her to put up with our horse-play. We 
think that Olie and Marion would make a great pair, 
having a similar make-up. Can't you two do something 
about it? Her genial nature and her perseverance have 
earned for her the respect of her classmates. 

E. C. S., Secretary-Treasurer; Horticultural Show, 2. 

Edward F. Norberg 

Arlington 1915 

Ruth, the Radcliffe girl, took our school giant around 
weekends. This may explain why Ed was the class 
bluffer. We don't consider Norberg studious, but we 
believe he will be a thoroughly practical florist. As 
well as being the best hockey player in Stockbridge, he 
is one of the most popular fellows in the Floriculture 

Kolony Klub, Vice-President, 2; Hockey, 1, Captain, 2. 


Edward M. Olson 

Belchertown 1916 

Slow, but persevering, Olie has worked hard here 
and deserves success. He has very little to say in 
class, but he is decidedly aware of what is taking 
place. He is invariably seen on campus with his bosom 
pal, Eastman. 

Cross Country, 1. 

Marshall N. Winkler 

Wakefield 1917 

Red is an expert skier who bored us constantly with 
his lengthy monologues on the art of skiing. He is 
deeply interested in carnations and has heated argu- 
ments with the professors over the finer points of carna- 
tion culture. Red has a fine scholastic record, probably 
due to the fact that he is a convincing bluffer.

Stanley W. Bartlett 

Springfield 1909 

A clear thinker and a reserved, polite sort of a fellow 

is Bartlett. Respected for his industriousness and liked 

for his quiet humor, Stan usually has a very loud burp 

for any occasion.

Joseph E. Broughton 

Brookfield 1918 

A trackman and a student with a very, very serious 
outlook on life, loe puts his heart and soul into his 
work and produces excellent results. With a job that 
has been v/aiting for him for two years he should have 
a rosy future.

George B. Bush 

Nev^rfane, Vermont 1916 

An expert ski-jumper, Barry sailed for Stockbridge at 
the first winter carnival and captured the prize. He is 
also a fine football and baseball player, contributing 
more than his share toward putting our teams in the 
winning columns. His congeniality is expressed in his 
friendly greeting, "Hi-ya, fella."

Vincent J. Callahan 

Harvard 1917 

Silent and attentive, Cal is rather shy, not given to 
saying much in class. His sincerity and his ability to 
work hard will be remembered by his professors and 
by his fellow students. His likable unassuming man- 
ner will probably aid him greatly in becoming a suc- 
cessful horticulturist.

Clifford E. Cummings 

West Springfield 1915 

Quiet, and slow in answering, angular Cliff is always 
ready with his broad smile. We expected his dilapi- 
dated motor conveyance — too venerable to be called an 
automobile, to blow up any day, but it virill probably 
stay under him for many more contented and slightly 
bacchanal miles. On placement at the college, Cliff 
literally left his mark on campus.

Edwin S. Ditchett 

South Weymouth 1917 

The dude of Stockbridge (when he v/ears a shirt) is 
characterized by the sleeping contest he carried on 
with Andy Kilgour. Ed is the possessor of a dry wit 
and a pleasing drawl. Ditchett did an excellent job as 
manager of the Horticultural Show. 

Horticultural Show, 1, 2; Horticultural Club, 2. 

Joseph E. Drago 

Fitchburg 1914 

Here is another serious student of horticulture — a 
sportsman and a great defence man on the football 
field. Joe's plaintive sigh isn't at all indicative of his 
athletic prowess. With his very definite ideas about 
life and his friendly disposition, Joe has been very

Frederick E. Fife 

West Springfield 1915 

Fred has rosy cheeks, an innocent outlook, and a 
worried sort of a smile. His earnest attempts to further 
his future success are evident in and out of the class- 
room. He is an ardent 4-H man and is very much 
interested in photography.

Milton M. Gagliarducci 

Springfield 1914 

Gag is always on the run, ever alert to gather in- 
formation or to make a dollar on the side. Annexed 
recently to the lady of his choice, Mickey should reach 
new heights as a landscaper with such an inspiration. 
Happiness to you and your bride!

Arthur N. Hartshorn 

Needham 19 H 

A little man with a great heart. A flash on the track, 
Dr. Hartshorn will soon be on call, ready to diagnose 
the ailments of any indisposed tree. After the seat of 
the trouble has been found, Surgeon Hartshorn will 
perform the operation.

Bernard F. Higdon 

Washington, D. C. 1915 

Hailing from the city of Politicians and Alphabets, 
Bernie, with a pleasing personality, an extraordinary 
sense of humor, and a profound interest in horticulture, 
did things at our Hort. shows. His blue-green grass, in 
his last exhibit, was a marvel to the eye. Perhaps 
this is a prognostication of what is to come out of that 
Maryland nursery. 

Horticultural Show, 1, 2; Horticultural Club, 2. 

Robert J. Hodgen, Jr. 

Gloucester 1917 

A slim runner who shov/s his wit on the most un- 
expected occasions, Hodge has a slow Vermont drawl. 
With his scholastic efforts and his ability to produce 
results he has helped to maintain the reputation for 
studlousness that the Hort. boys have acquired.

Frederick E. Jansen 

Stamford, Connecticut 1916 

Fred is a most airy, congenial, fun-loving individual 
who enjoys being different, especially in the company 
of one Johnny Keenan. He belongs to our group of 
tree men and possesses an "itchy foot", with which he 
hopes to see much of the world. We couldn't wish for 
a pleasanter traveling companion.

John F. Keenan 

Cherry Valley , 1916 

The pride of Cherry Valley is John, distinguished by 
an enthusiastic attitude toward his work and by his 
enjoyment of verbal combat. This young man has 
forceful ideas. Among other things, John has a unique 
sense of hum.or, and a particular liking for hockey.

James M. Landers 

Holyoke 1917 

To Holyoke we are indebted for Jim, the fun-loving 
chap who has supplied us with many laughs. The 
number of people he knows on the campus is over- 
whelming. He often complains because people don't 
"innore" him, but after all is said and done, we'd rather 
not ignore this effective blues-chaser. Go into your 
dance, Jim.

Eugene F. McDonough 

Jamaica Plain 1914 

Hail the Fire Chief! Mac is reported to have ex- 
tinguished a blaze at the A. T. G. with the able 
assistance of the Amherst Fire Department . . . hence 
the title. In fact. Gene probably has more nicknames 
tacked onto him than any other one of us. This auburn- 
haired youth has made his presence felt among us as 
a spreader of good cheer. Sail on, Mac.

Winthrop W. Sanderson 

Greenfield 1915 

A good student and a conscientious worker is Sandy, 
the stocky lad with the curly hair. He acts with calm 
assurance and loses not a word that is said in lectures. 
As to his adeptness in asking questions and his in- 
quisitive stare, nothing more need be said.

Herbert C. Simmons 

Wollaston 1914 

A fine orator, and a good scholar. Herb is another 
landscape enthusiast. Quiet and with a determination 
to forge ahead, he should make Stockbridge proud to 
have him as a graduate. If he were a little less re- 
served. Herb would be a lot of fun.

Frederick C. Tucker 

Marlboro 1909 

Diplomatic politician, able football player, and ex- 
perienced nurseryman, breezy Tucker has been the 
leader in class life at Stockbridge. We envy his self- 
confidence and we know that Tuck will lead in life as 
he has led here. If every class could have a guiding 
hand with Fred's ability, our school would benefit

Frank J. Wojtkielewicz 

South Deerfield 1914 

Frank is the tall blond lad with the grin. He is often 
associated with Deerfield and also with Annie, that 
two-wheeled conveyance which carries him to classes 
each day from the other end of town. But Annie isn't 
always reliable, whereas Frank is. His ability as a 
basketball player need not be questioned.

a group of Horticulture students for the purpose of furthering the students' 
interest in this subject. The members take this opportunity to express their 
appreciation to Rolf Heitman, Eugene McDonough, and Dewhirst Wade for 
their splendid work in drawing up the constitution and program for the year. 

The speakers for the year included Professor Frank A. Waugh, Director 
R. H. Verbeck, Professor S. Church Hubbard, Mr. Benjamin Isgur, Mr. Arnold

The American Cornucopia — 

ever and always becoming more healthful 
and bountiful. 


Howard H. Andrews 

Fitchburg 1917 

Red, a carefree, slow, sleepy individual who has 
never hurried when away from the football field, has 
a theory on the conservation of energy that Einstein 
would admire. In spite of this seeming impassiveness 
and indolence, Red has participated actively in all 
school events. He hopes to be a bachelor, but some 
fair damsel will come along and upset his applecart 
with disastrous results to his placidity of mind. 
Alpha Tau Gamma; Football, 2. 

Frederick O. Fischer 

Vineyard Haven 1913 

Fred, affectionately known as Gramp by some of his 
fun-loving fraternity brothers, is undoubtedly the best- 
natured lad in our class. His easy-going, likable 
personality is characterized in all he says, does, or 
even the way he dresses. The second of three brothers 
attending Stockbridge, he will be remembered, as will 
they, by his distinctly collegiate Ford.

Mac, one of the few to make a success of entering 
as a Senior from an agricultural high school course, is 
not known by all, but he is well liked by those who 
have come into contact with him. Quiet and good- 
natured, he has made a good scholastic record and we 
feel sure that his will be another success story. It 
seems that there is an interest in Framingham State 
Teachers College that isn't in the prescribed course 
of study.

Wilbur P. Young 

Wallingford, Connecticut 1918 

A self-styled Connecticut Hill-Billy and well known 
as the very capable manager of the football team for 
two years. Starting with last year's class as a poultry- 
man, he has changed his course and become a 
Pomology major. With this background and with his 
confident spirit he should be successful. Will is a 
wee bit boisterous at times, and we hear that he is 
interested in tree-grown cranberries.

Waltham 1917 

We envy Smitty's ability to sleep in class and still 
pass the exams. The reason for this somnolent attitude 
toward matters educational is probably the fact that 
Smitty is one of our socialites, being the leading night- 
owl of Stockbridge. His cheerfulness and smiling good- 
nature will be remembered for many years by his 
numerous friends.

Boisterous Bob with his raucous voice and infectious

had been anticipated. Due to a late start only two meetings were held. At 
the first meeting, on January 13, a general social program was held and 
refreshments were served by the wives of the faculty members. Meetings 
for the year were planned and officers were elected. 

On February 25 the second meeting was held and Mr. Walter Woodward, 
Manager of the Park and Pollard demonstration farm, gave an interesting 
talk on "Poultry Problems." 

Directly after this the Stockbridge Freshmen poultry majors left and so 
no further meetings were held.

Our Senior class president will long be remembered 
for his stirring address to the out-going Freshman class. 
Baldy is a versatile athlete, playing football, hockey,

faster than the average squirrel. He is interested in 
fish culture and intends to raise bass commercially.

Stoughton 1B16 

With a blue-eyed, innocent beauty that should win 
him a role in Hollywood, this delicate six foot giant 
starred in "Lifers on Parade", that epoch making movie 
of the Wild Life class. Swede is an expert fisherman, 
and can spin tall stories with the be3t of fabricators.

A star in football and an all-around athlete, Tom is

secret, perhaps shared with a little miss in Swampscott 
who sends him several perfumed letters each week.

Gil loves to chase the hounds over hill and dale in

interested in fur farming, and may some day have a 
ranch of his own.

begins many a discourse on proper management. He 
has a wonderful line and plenty of self-confidence, and 
should be successful.

Mike is an athletic sort of a fellow and has partici- 
pated in football, basketball, and baseball. He delighted 
in arriving in class just as the bell started to ring — 
we assumed that this seeming delinquence was caused 
by reluctance to leave the last class. Drawing is Mike's 
hobby, and it is our opinion he missed a career in art.

versation, but he is a genuine outdoor man, having 
raised and trained his own bird dog. He spends a 
great deal of his spare time in the library looking up 
references for future use. He is an ardent devotee of 
Isaac Walton, so he isn't quite as serious as he seems.

J. P. is the most persistent worker in the whole wild 
life class and one glance at his scholastic record will 
show that this is a very valuable trait. He attended 
the Game Conservation Institute in New Jersey before 
coming here, and he is one of the pioneers in the suc- 
cessful raising of cottontail rabbits in captivity.

Lee spends his spare time in Cushman with pleasant 
company, we have no doubt. A dark, good looking 
fellow with not too much interest in things academic, 
he has spent two summers at M. S. C. raising pheasants 
and grouse, regaining in practical experience what he 
may have lost in theory. His favorite sport is poaching 
Ma Goodwin's eggs.

The high-diving champion of the wild life group is 
also a very proficient roller skater. He has a fine 
voice and an admirable physique — with these qualifi- 
cations, he should prove to be a story-book hero. Roger 
intends to take up Forestry when he graduates.

During the past year the members of the Stockbridge Student Council 
have ably performed their duties and have upheld the splendid traditions of 
the school. A new custom has been inaugurated this year, namely the 
the awarding of distinctive hats to the members of the Council. 

The Student Council takes this opportunity to express their sincere thanks 
to Director Verbeck and the Short Course Office for their cooperation and 
invaluable assistance.

The Stockbridge Alumni Association was founded in 1926 by a group of 
loyal graduates who had been out into the world for several years busily 
mastering life's struggles, but not too busy to realize the lack of strong ties to 
hold their interest in Alma Mater and keep old memories and friendships 
ever fresh. 

The Stockbridge School of Agriculture, or the "Two-Year Course in 
Practical Agriculture," as it was known prior to 1928, is a very young School, 
registering its first class in 1918. The type of training which was offered in 
this non-degree vocational course was entirely different, a new plan of 
practical education in agriculture not available at any other college in New 
England. So it was really pioneering 'work when Professor John Phelan and 
his Faculty Committee set up the standards and courses of study which should 
be followed in those earlier years. Thus we find the trial efforts of yesterday 
with necessary modifications and change, fast becoming the accepted 
practices of today. It was this training, academic, practical, and social, which 
has made it possible for our group of Alumni to go out into the world and 
become not only skilled workers in the world's oldest and most useful pro- 
fession, but good citizens as well. Stockbridge School has a very large 
percentage of graduates who are holding positions of responsibility, com- 
paring favorably with other types of colleges and institutions. These loyal 
sons of Stockbridge are becoming the real backbone of agriculture, not only 
in New England, but in many neighboring states. 

With such a loyal undergraduate body as there is on the campus each 
year, it is only natural that an active Alumni Association should be organized. 
Starting as it did during the time when business was good, it had a period 
of rapid development and was able to get well established before the begin- 
ning of the depression; otherwise it would not have been able to weather the 
many years of hard times which came so unexpectedly. 

The first meeting of the Alumni organization was held in Sherer's Restau- 
rant at Worcester in November of 1926. The committee members who started 
the association were Sidney A. Smith, Walter B. Shaw, Arthur R. Taylor, 
Gordon E. Steele, and Roger B. Estey, all of the class of 1921. Plans were 
formulated at that dinner gathering for the constitution and by-laws which 
later that summer were adopted and have been our guiding plan ever since. 

The Stockbridge Alumni News first known as Two-Year News was 
published by Paul W. Viets, the Supervisor of Placement Training from 1921 
to 1927, as a mimeographed sheet, and was sent to all graduates whether 
they were active in the Alumni Association or not. Later the Alumni Associ- 
ation took over the cost of publishing a printed news letter which is issued 
three times each year. The practice the last few years has been that only 
those who have paid their alumni dues shall receive this publication. Dues 
in the Association are $2.00 annually, which is a very nominal fee when one 
considers the cost of circularizing such a large group as we now have on 
the School records— 600 in 1924, more than 2000 names in 1937. 




It should be the object of each graduate or former student of the Stock- 
bridge School to join the Alumni Association before he leaves the College and 
thereby make a permanent contact between him and his classmates. One 
little realizes how much you value the associates whom you have enjoyed 
during the two years spent on the campus, until after a year or so when you 
find your classmates spread out over the greater part of this country. It is 
then that you wish to have some means whereby you can keep informed as 
to what each one is doing. 

Often it so happens that a graduate upon receiving his credentials at 
commencement time feels that now he will be able to go out into his chosen 
type of work and have everything pretty much his own way. But, such is far 
from the true course of things. The training which is received while studying 
here at the College is merely outlining a course for the development of one's 
abilities. Whether or not one will follow the proper course and have ability 
lead straight to achievement, will depend entirely upon one's own self. It is 
like two contractors building a house. One uses good judgment in choosing 
materials and planning, while the other does not have knowledge to back his 
plans, and soon after the houses are completed the latter needs constant 
alteration to secure the desired results. The old saying, "Experience is a dear 
teacher," still holds true even in the case of Stockbridge graduates. It will 
be found that one may learn much by matching experiences with those who 
have had the same training and are employed in much the same kind of 
work and thereby save oneself the mistakes and errors which would otherwise 
have to be endured. 

Reviewing all that has been said, it is easy to visualize a year or two 
hence the value of belonging to the Alumni Association of your School and 
keeping posted on the activities of the College and of your classmates and 
acquaintances .

zation are listed below with the periods of their service indicated.

In addition to the above mentioned officers there are many more faithful 
alumni who have served on special committees whenever their services were 

The Stockbridge School Alumni Association wishes to take this oppor- 
tunity to express its sincere appreciation for the faithful support it has received 
from its officers and members and the valuable aid and guidance it has 
enjoyed through these trying days of youthful trial and faltering growth from 
President Hugh P. Baker, Director Roland H. Verbeck, and the faculty of Massa- 
chusetts State College. 

We, as older members of this organization, are glad to welcome the Class 
of 1937 into our midst.

The Stockbridge Intra-mural plaque is donated by the Physical Education 
Department to promote greater interest in the Spring athletic program of the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture. To increase competition, the Senior class 
is divided into four sections during the Spring semester. One group is com- 
posed of the members of the two fraternities, and is known as the "Club" 
team. The second team is made up of Seniors majoring in Dairy Manu- 
factures, and is called the "Dairy" team. The "Hort" team is composed of 
students majoring in Horticulture, Floriculture, and Pomology. The "Wild 
Life" team is made up of Seniors majoring in Wild Life Management, Animal 
Husbandry, and Poultry Husbandry. 

The Spring program is divided into three parts — an indoor track meet 
held in April, an outdoor track meet held in May, and an intramural base- 
ball league schedule, with each team playing the other teams at least twice. 
The trophy will be awarded each year to the team having the highest average 
standing in all three events, and may be retained for a year in that department. 

The plaque was won in 1937 by the Dairy team.

Early this year at one of the regular meetings of the Stockbridge Faculty 
Advisory Committee, Miner J. Markuson, Assistant Professor of Agricultural 
Engineering, presented the suggestion that a plan be adopted by which 
Stockbridge students who achieved a high scholastic record during their 
two years here could receive some recognition for that work. It has been 
a custom in the School for many years to award letters, sweaters, and certifi- 
cates to students who compete successfully for places on the various athletic 
teams; the members of "The Shorthorn" staff receive a place of prominence 
in the yearbook; the Student Council this year has selected special hats as 
an emblem of the duties and responsibilities vested in them; and all of these 
are extra-curricular activities, not definitely scheduled or required on the study 
program, but, nevertheless, playing a very important part in the broadening 
influences of our Stockbridge life. 

To the faculty group this idea of encouraging high scholarship appealed 
strongly and it was voted to appoint a special committee to submit full plans. 
As a result of this committee's careful work a plan of procedure has been 
adopted which the Faculty Advisory Com_mittee hopes will serve to emphasize 
the importance of sound scholastic standards among all Stockbridge under- 

The name selected was "Stosag", the original suggestion of Professor 
Markuson, and comprises the first three letters of Stockbridge, the central S 
for "School" and the last two letters representing the first two in the word 
"Agriculture". Thus, it combines effectively letters from the three main words 
in the name of the School and yet is short, dignified, and easily pronounced. 
The "O" is given the sound as in "stone", and the "a" as in the word from 
which it came. 

The purpose of the organization is "To honor and publicly reward those 
graduates of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture who have attained high 
scholastic standing and have shown the attributes of good citizenship." 

Selection of honor students is made from those graduates of each year, 
beginning with 1937, whose records show no grade below 70 in any subject 
and whose average for the first three semesters is 85 or better. Other students 
may be considered when outstanding records in placement training or in other 
studies may justify special consideration. 

Special regulations are simple and specific. They are: (a) there shall 
be no future organization of members of this society; (b) there shall be no 
dues of any sort; (c) there shall be no election of faculty to honorary member- 
ship; (d) the weighted method of striking averages shall be followed; and 
(e) placement training grades shall be used to guide the Faculty Advisory 
Committee in making selections, but shall not be included in averages 

Awards shall be made by the Director or his selected representative at 
the annual Commencement exercise in June. The award shall be an engraved 
certificate signed by the President of the College and the Director of Short 

The first group of honor students ever to be selected in this way has been 
chosen from the Class of 1937 and we take pride in recording their names in 
this yearbook of the class as a tribute to their effort, persistence, and ability.

The twenty-eighth annual Horticultural Show was held in the cage of 
the Physical Education Building on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 
sixth, seventh, and eighth. The main feature of the show was a very attractive 
formal garden, constructed by Stockbridge students, and sponsored by the 
Horticulture Club. Stockbridge students also received numerous awards in 
individual and group exhibits. 





The Class of 1937 introduced the new Stockbridge ring which is intended 
to start a tradition which will continue to symbolize the Stockbridge School 
and all its achievements. The ring is set with a blue spinel stone, signifying 
one of the school colors. On one shank of the ring is the seal of the State 
of Massachusetts. The other shank contains the authentic coat-of-arms of 
Levi Stockbridge, after whom the Stockbridge School of Agriculture is named. 

The Stockbridge coat-of-arms consists of a shield with three crescents 
arranged triangularly. The crescents symbolize the three crusades against 
the Saracens during the Middle Ages. The crest of the coat-of-arms is a 
knight's helmet with a closed visor, indicating preparedness to do battle for 
truth and righteousness and to relieve the oppressed.

The year began with the first meeting held at the 4-H Clubhouse. All 
Senior members and ten Freshmen were present. After the functions and 
activities of the club were explained to the new girls, Miss Hamlin gave a 
very interesting description of her recent trip to Alaska. She illustrated her 
talk with postcards, photographs and several native-made souvenirs. The 
meeting was adjourned after refreshments were served. At the last meeting, 
during which next year's officers were elected, a social hour was held. 

Although the year did not hold many social events for us, it was quite 
successful and enjoyable. We hope that next year's members will arrange 
a more active program and carry on the traditions of the S. C S.

With the aid of our new and popular faculty adviser, Rudolph Monosmith, 
we have enjoyed a very successful year. 

Mr. Monosmith has been a constant and most helpful friend and we take 
this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for his assistance. 



This organization has developed from the series of discussion group 
meetings which have been led by Rev. K. C. MacArthur. Protestants, Catho- 
lics, and Jews have all participated in the discussions of social and religious 
problems. Among the topics treated during the current academic year have 
been: Religion and Communism, Evolution and Religion, The Meaning of 
Thanksgiving and Christmas, Choosing a Life Partner, Home Life, and 
The Place of Suffering in Experience. 

The thanks of the group are due the Kolony Klub and the Alpha Tau 
Gamma for their generosity in opening their houses for these meetings.

With only five lettermen returning, Coach Ball and Alden P. Tuttle had 
to work hard to whip the team into first class condition for the initial game. 
The team opened the season with a flying start, but slowed down as the 
season advanced, due largely to the many injuries to the players. The 
objective game with Deerfield was lost in the last half when they recovered 
our fumble and converted it into a touchdown. 

The second and third teams had an excellent season, coming through 
undefeated. There are several promising stars, some of whom will be regulars 
next year, forming a fine nucleus for a bigger and better team. 

Letter awards to Seniors are as follows: Co-captains, Elmer Hair and 
Barry Bush, Howard Andrews, Harry Acker, Donald Baldwin, Thomas Boyce, 
Joseph Bauks, Irving Christensen, Joseph Drago, Armando Emanuele, Frederick 
Fischer, Bernard Jackimczyk, Anthony Merino, Winthrop Sanderson, Frederick 
Tucker, Carleton Whittaker, and Manager Wilbur Young. 

Freshmen receiving letters were: Captain-elect Ernest Fournier, Eben 
Brown, Henry Griffin, Edwin Helander, and Richard Sparks.

Due to poor ice conditions, the hockey team was able to play only four 
games, three of which were lost. The opening game at Williston was lost by 
one goal after a hard fought battle. The team then traveled to Deerfield to 
lose a see-sow game when Deerfield scored in the last few seconds of play. 
In the return game, Williston overpowered us by a fast skating aggregation. 
The final game with the State Freshmen was played on the College pond on 
ice which made skating almost impossible. The game was called after the 
first overtime period, with both teams scoreless.

Our scene is laid in the Village of Clovelly on the -wind-swept coast of 
Devon. Far above, on a stormy crag, clinging by its toes, there stands a 
pirate's hut. We had hoped we might see a pirate ship at sea, a swaying 
mast, full set with canvas, a victim walking off the plank into the roaring sea. 
But alas, our pirates grow old and stiff. They have retired, as we say, from 
active practice and live in luxury on shore. Yet their villany still thrives. 
We are quick to think that childhood passes with the years, that its fine fancy 
is blunted with the practice of the world. But, if man permits, a child keeps 
house within his heart. For him, long will live the timid Patch-eye, the evil 
Duke limping on his wooden leg, the roaring Captain flourishing his hook. 
Darling and her one tooth, sinister Old Meg, Red Joe and Betsy who are, — 
but if the child in your heart still lives, you have always known who they are. 
And once again in Wappin' Wharf, despite the sign-post of the years, we 
have run on the "laughing avenues of childhood".
