DEVOTEDLY SERVED 



1931 25th ANNIVERSARY 1956 



PROF. ROLLIN H. BARRETT 



In many ways Professor Rollin H. Barrett's 
career is typical of the "Ideal American." His life 
began, as the si.xth child in a family of ten, in Ver- 
mont. Early in his life he found himself without 
parental support or guidance. Upon completion of 
grammar school he set out to make his fortune. The 
desire for more education became a 



For years he followed the athletic teams of our 
University, often taking whole week-ends. The 
films of the games helped to produce better teams. 
Pop's association improved the morale of the men. 
His films for the University recording current 
events, research, and teaching materials, measured 



the age of nineteen he entered high school and at 
twenty-seven completed his work at_ Connecticut 
Agricultural College. ^ 

^ A^ 

Before coming to M^achusetts'^'g-ricultcrfSF^ 
College in 1926 he sd«i^ed as Assistant Count)' 
Agent in Hartford, Cganecticiit, as Lieutenant in 
the United States Arrny, as Principal of the Ver- 
mont School of Agrt^alture at Randolph, and as 
Assistant in the Depja^ment 0f Farm Managcmejgt|' 
at Cornell UniversiU',. wher^j ibf-jfigfiiised hiiiS M 
ter's Degree. 



pparent^id/Tit C\ in miles instead of feet, have helped to establish 





Early training in ^t'onsibffit\- and de\otion to 
one's work sets a standaf3 for a.person's later life. 
Anyone without Pop Barrett's background could 
not accomplish so much with such appareiu case as 
he does. Although he has been awarded citations 
for his long and constructive work for the Athletic_ 
Department and the A.'F.G. fraternity it is only 
those who have worked most closeh' with him who 
know the fullness of his life. 

The fraternity citation mentioned above was 
for 25 years of service as advisor to the fraternity. 
His devotion to the social and cultural improve- 
ment of Stockbridge students should qualify him 
as unofficial "Assistant Director." 



better public relations for our school. For years he 
has been Chairman of the Campus Conventions 
ittee. The administrations of three Uni- 
versity presidents have left this responsibility en- 
tirely in his hands. This fact alone measures the 
stature of the man in the eyes of his superiors. For 
even a longer time he has been Chairman of the 
Visual Education Committee. Hours and hours of 
work have gone into making Visual Education at 
^^Massachusetts -outstanding for this region. These 
'land man)' other organizational activities have oc- 
cupied each evening, week-ends and much of his 
acation time. ,g/(^^ ^ 

But his e.xtra curricular work was never allowed 
to lower his teaching standards. There is evidence 
to support the statement that Farm Management 
teaching at the University of Massachusetts is the 
best in this nation. The test of good teaching comes 
when the student'' faces the actual managerial prob- 
lems. The students' loyalty increases as they are 
better able to make a decision using Pop's answer 
"it all depends — ." 

On October 31, 1956, Pop Barrett will retire 
from the University staff. His position will be filled 
but Pop Barrett will never be replaced. He has 
been, is, and shall continue to be a loyal and de- 
voted friend of Stockbridge men and women.

FOREWORD 



I, 



.t IS the hope and aim of the Shorthorn Board that this 
yearbook will serve as a remembrance of old memories of our 
college activities. We have striven to fashion The Shorthorn of 
1956 into a true picture of our two years at Stockbridge. 

If, after the lapse of time, you may chance to leaf through this 
book, we hope you will find that the brilliance of a somewhat 
fading picture is restored. Then, and only then, shall we know 
our tireless efforts have been a great success.

ipiiiPSSAGES 



I am impressed by the unity of spirit of the 
Stockbridge School students and alumni, a group 
with a common interest and aim — better production 
through scientific agriculture — with a common in- 
tensified program — on the campus and on the job — 
the Stockbridge students have developed an admir- 
able unity. They have contributed much, they will 
continue to be a distinctive and valued group with- 
in our University community. As alumni and well- 
trained citizens, they will always be welcomed on 
the campus, and they can serve their Alma Mater 
well throughout the Commonwealth. We shall al- 
ways be proud of this distinctive group. 





Shannon McCune 
Provost 



Recognizing "That the past is but a prologue 
for the present and the future" I draw from former 
President Thatcher's statement in the 1929 Short- 
horn. 

"The Stockbridge School meets a specific need 
for technical vocational education beyond trade 
or high school but shorter, more definitely voca- 
tional than the degree courses of college or uni- 
versity. Educators recognize that this kind of train- 
ing is needed for industries other than agriculture. 

"The Stockbridge School meets excellently this 
need and has a most promising future. Further, 
it is an example for vocational education for many 
other industries. I congratulate both students and 
college of this special form of education."

The Stockbridge School of Agriculture is an im- 
portant part of a great College of Agriculture in 
the University of Massachusetts, and is uniquely 
qualified to continue the training of young men 
and women of Massachusetts in various phases of 
agriculture. Its graduates are the outstanding agri- 
cultural enterprisers in Massachusetts and New 
England. 

The fact that many other Land-Grant Colleges 
are copying this form of training serves as further 
evidence of the distinctive job that has been done 
here. Every graduate of the Stockbridge School 
should be proud, as we are, of the notable repu- 
tation the School possesses. 

Dale H. Sieling / 
Dean 



I have a particular interest in the class of 1956 
because this was the first class to enter after I be- 
came Director. There is no doubt that you repre- 
sent one of the best classes in Stockbridge history. 
Under your leadership, student government has 
become responsible and effective. You have main- 
tained high morale which has been contagious — 
caught by the class of 1957. It is difficult to de- 
fine school pride, and yet it is not hard to sense that 
members of the class of 1956 really are proud of 
Stockbridge. I wish each one of you happiness and 
success.

HARRY G. LINDQUIST, M.S. 



IN MEMORIAM 



One former student has written, "I will always remember him 
as an outstanding teacher, a fine gentleman, and a real friend." 

This portrays to all his friends and students the man from Room 
206 Flint Laboratory, who for over thirty-five years was himself the 
devoted student of dairy science. 

His classroom teachings were not his only attribute. He at- 
tempted to know each student personally, judging each on sincerity 
and character as well as knowledge. His were the qualities of a true 
teacher. 

There can be no better monument to his memory than the hun- 
dreds of former students, and friends who fondly remember "Lindy" 
for his staunch faith in the industry that was his life.

The Stockbridge Student Council is composed 
of representatives from the student body, acting 
as' the Legislative function in Self-Student Gov- 
ernment. 

Acting under its new Constitution, the council 
is vested in school promotion through sports, radio, 
newspaper, and R.S.O. representation, allocation 
and expenditure of school funds, running the stu- 
dent body as a democracy, and this year organized 
a General Court of Justice, which acting as a ju- 
dicial branch, enforces the constitution. 

Many other accomplishments were made this 
year. The Progress Banquet, hockey team, most 
valuable player trophy, enlargement of Stockbridge 
space in the Handbook, Stockbridge Day, promotion 
of eighty inch space in the Collegian, were all made 
possible by a cooperating student body.

ALPHA TAU GAMMA 











[66] 




A group working together can always accomplish greater things. 
That has been the primary principle of Alpha Tau Gamma fraternity 
down through the years. 

Participation in all of the activities is the main factor for 
A.T.G.'s high standing. We competed this year to better our pre- 
vious high rating, in many ways we have done this. 

As all A.T.G. members have always participated in social ac- 
tivities, our first party, a welcome to the freshmen, was attended 
by one of the largest groups ever seen at our fraternity. Since then 
we have had a Victory Dance, a Costume Party, a Hobo Party, 
and our usual great Christmas Party, attended by Santa Claus 
{Pop Barrett). Other parties were the Valentine Party and our 
ever-popular Jungle Party. 

The Stockbridge School's football and basketball teams were 
comprised mostly of A.T.G. members. This is one reason why we 
have such good teamwork and spirit in the fraternity. This spirit 
is also the reason why we have a fraternity member in each of the 
senior class offices and members on the student council. 

A.T.G.'s unexcelled spirit this year won the Campus Chest 
Drive for the second year in a row tL>ith a new high mark of 367 
per cent. 

A snow sculpture was made to coincide with the Winter Car- 
nival week-end. 

February 24, was the last night of freshman initiation, which 
took place within the fraternity. 

The annual pledge formal was held on March 3, 1956, at the 
Hotel Northampton. Guest speakers included President, Jean Paul 
Mather; and Director, Fred P. Jeffrey. 

This year Alpha Tau Gamma achieved its goal in student or- 
ganization and friendship, a milestone gained by the fraternity 
brothers; a mark to be proud of.

KAPPA KAPPA 





[68] 




The year 1956 is one to be remembered by the boys of Kappa 
Kappa. It proved to be one of the most fun-filled and profitable 
years the house has yet enjoyed. 

Kappa Kappa started the year off with a huge Harvest Party 
and barn dance which was talked about for many weeks. The house 
had a Mexican party where the Mexican motif took over. To top 
off 1955 we had a Chrismas party with a buffet supper served in our 
own kitchen by our excellent cooks in food management. The opening 
of the house's new rustic style bar was in the accompaniment of good 
food and Christmas Carols by a near record crowd of 100 people. 

On January 23, after much fun with initiation stunts and var- 
ious hazings, our pledges finally became members. At this time 
Kappa Kappa, a member of the Interfraternity Council, began to 
take their basketball and bowling competition with the University 
seriously. 

Another highlight of the year was the annual banquet, held at 
the Williams House in Williamsburg, at which we had a wonder- 
ful time. Dean Jeffrey was the guest speaker. Still another event 
to be remembered was the cocktail party with A. T. G., and the 
Winter Carnival weekend. The house entered an exact replica of 
a New England Church in the Snow Sculpture Competition. 

As the year drew to a close, seniors began to regret having to 
leave while the freshmen eagerly looked forward to next year when 
their chance would come. The year 1956 will always remain in 
our minds as we look back on the spirit, the friendships, the fun 
we shared when we were members of a wonderful fraternity. Kappa 
Kappa.

With only two veterans returning, the Octet 
in its second organized year has done a tremendous 
job. 

Auditions were held early in the year; and 
under the competent direction of Robert Ames the 
group was soon rehearsing many of the old "Bar- 
bershop favorites". 

The Octet was first heard at a Convocation, 
from there they moved to various church functions ;

as their popularity increased they were heard at 
"Hickory House" and "Wiggins Tavern". 

During the Semester vacation they accompanied 
the University Chorale to the South Shore where 
they were received very warmly.

ever increasing in popularity on and off of the 
campus.

im. 



[76] 




The theme for this, the 43rd Annual Horticultural 
Show, was "The State Is Our Campus". 

The main feature was a huge map showing how the 
counties are served by the University. This was surrounded 
by the fine departmental exhibits and the individual student 
10 X lO's which all pointed out the many services per- 
formed by the University. 

This year a new idea was initiated, the person who 
made the outstanding accomplishments in the field of Hor- 
ticulture took over the spotlight replacing the traditional 
queen. 

The Horticulturalist of the year was S. Lothrop 
Davenport of Worcester, the first person to receive this 
honor. 

It is the feeling of the student body that this new 
honor has a far greater significance and will do more to 
distinguish Stockbridge than any other idea associated with 
the show. 

Although the November weather was responsible for 
a slightly smaller crowd than last year's show, this show 
was a great success.

Premier Showman — James Anderson. 



LITTLE INTERNATIONAL 




This show is patterned after the International 
Livestock Show held annually in Chicago and is 
participated in by the two-year seniors and the 
four-year juniors majoring in Animal Husbandry. 
While not striving for the spectacular, the show 
is a great attraction for about a 1,000 people every 
year — both farmers and city folk who are inter- 
ested in seeing beautifully-groomed and expertly- 
trained animals shown to their best advantage. 
Morgan horses, Hereford and Angus cattle, Shrop- 
shire sheep and Chester White hogs are the animals 
exhibited. 

This year's premier showman was James An- 
derson, a Stockbridge student from Pembroke ; the 
reserve showman — Carl O'Neil, a University stu- 
dent from Kingston, and honorable mention went 
to Thomas Stone, Stockbridge, from Westfield.

WINTER 




CARNIVAL 



The theme of this year's Winter Carnival was 
"Old New England". It opened with a hay ride, 
followed by fireworks and a jazz concert. On 
Friday evening the Winter Carnival Ball featured 
Tex Beneke and his orchestra. Joan Crawford was 
crowned Winter Carnival Queen by President 
Mather. A bufiEet supper was held after the ball. 

In the snow sculpture judging, Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon's "Evening Round", Chi Omega's "Parting 
Promise", and Lewis dorm's "Home Is Where 
The Heart Is", were winners in their respective 
classes. 

The famed Sno-Ball dance of the Stockbridge 
School, a carnival feature last year, was held again 
and went over with great enthusiasm as the crowd 
rocked and rolled to the rhythm of Red Cooper's 
orchestra. 

Another highlight of the carnival was the spec- 
tacular swimming show by the Naiads at the U. 
of M. pool.

SNOW 




BALL 



For the second year, the Sno-Ball, a Stock- 
bridge sponsored dance, was held as a part of the 
Winter Carnival Weekend. Again this dance 
proved a big success. 

Few could recognize the interior of the Drill 
Hall where the dance was held, due to the excellent 
work of the committee on decorations. Another 
touch of gaiety was the handsomely attired couples 
who rocked and rolled to .the fabulous rhythm of 
"Red Cooper" and his orchestra. 

The attendance of Dean Jeffrey and his guests 
put the finishing touch to an evening that is sure 
to become a necessary part of this ever-popular 
weekend.

PROGRESS 

BANQUET 



The purpose of the Progress Banquet was two- 
fold : first it was to honor the many students whose 
achievements have been outstanding in the past, 
such as the football team and its outstanding player, 
Larry Gerrior, the Cheer Leaders and the Collegian 
Staff for their tireless work in promoting Stock- 
bridge; Alpha Tau Gamma and Berkshire House 
for their first place awards in the Campus Chest 
drive. 

The second reason for the Progress Banquet 
was to add emphasis to the great school spirit that 
has been generated by the Class of "56" and give 
it a boost into the final months of our school years. 

If the classes of the future show as much en- 
thusiasm as this class has we feel sure the banquet 
cannot help but become an annual affair.

STOSAG 



Stockbridge seniors with distinguished scholas- 
tic records are honored by election to Stosag. The 
derivation of Stosag is obvious — "Sto" from Stock- 
bridge, "s" from school, and "ag" from Agriculture. 

To qualify for election by the Stockbridge Ad- 
visory Committee the student must have maintained 
an average grade of 3.4 points quality or better.

Stosag was established in 1935 at the suggestion 
of Professor Miner J. Markuson and the 1956 
members represent the seventeenth crop. 

Congratulations to those elected in 1956.

BASKETBALL 



The basketball season for the Blue-Devils was 
hardly as successful as was anticipated. 

Diligent practice sessions were inaugurated just 
prior to the Christmas vacation and by Jan. 9th the 
team was ready to undertake a twelve game season 
which promised to be a real tax of the players 
abilities. 

Although the record shows two wins and ten 
losses, it fails to show the enthusiasm and the 
amount of effort displayed by each and every 
member of the squad. 

The biggest problem for the "Aggies" seemed 
to be getting started after the midway mark in 
the game. They held their own in all of the games 
until it came to this point; then, it just seemed as 



if someone 


put a

FOOTBALL 



Coach Steve Kosakowski had high hopes for the 
'55 "Aggie" football squad, when they showed up 
for practice late in September. As usual there was 
hardly enough time for "conditioning" before the 
first game against Thayer Academy on October 1, 
but team spirit was exceptional as the Blue Devils 
set out to win them all. 

For the first time in the history of the school 
tri-captains were elected to represent the team. 
Dale Freed, Jack Tierney and Vern Rix were given 
the honors. 

Another first for the S.S.A. was the presenta- 
tion of the "Outstanding Player Award". This 



coveted trophy was given to Larry Gerrior. 

An impressive record of four wins, one tie, 
and one loss was put on the books by the team this 
year. The only defeat coming at the hands of a 
powerful Mt. Hermon team at the end of the 
season.

MR. SOUTH WICK'S 



SALUTATORY 




A student told me sometime ago that he did not 
know why he was wasting his time here in Stock- 
bridge. He had previously worked for a very 
well known landscape architect who had taught 
him everything there was to know. With some 
assistance from other students he was soon con- 
vinced that there was a few things he did not know. 
His placement was so arranged that he went back 
to work with his former employer and together 
they incorporated some of the things he learned at 
school into the business to the satisfaction of both 
parties. I have had occasions to speak with that 
student 'many times since then. He talks now of 
the opportunities for further study and sees no end 
to the opportunity to learn more about his chosen 
field 

It is even more difficult for a student to under- 
stand why when he comes here hoping to learn 
everything finds himself leaving, knowing very little 
compared to what he wants to know. This is 
typical of higher education for as we approach 
mastery of our field we find that there are many 
things that are still unexplainable. Stockbridge is 
designed to give you a fundamental training to 
prepare you to meet the problem, analyze it, and 
solve it or know where to find the solution, if one 



exists. If you have absorbed the information pre- 
sented in Stockbridge, yet feel that you still have a 
lot to learn you are in a position to enter your 
chosen field and accomplish wonderful things. 
George Herbert, the great metaphysical poet, said 
it this way : 

/ know the ways of learning, both . . . 

In laws and policy; what the stars conspire 

What willing nature speaks, what forced by 
fire; 

Both the old discoveries, and the new-found 
seas, 

The stock and surplus, cause and history; 

All these stand open, or I have the keys, . . 

There seems to be a disease in Stockbridge, a 
contagious enthusiasm that infects both student 
and faculty. It is characteristic of the school as 
is evident in the cooperation between student and 
faculty in making it the best of its type. I was 
very pleased to be chosen as Pop Barrett's suc- 
cessor as advisor to the yearbook. I know only too 
well the boots I am asked to fill and know that 
each succeeding yearbook will be better than the 
previous ones because of the traditional interest 
and enthusiasm endowed in it by Pop Barrett.

POP BARRETT'S 



VALEDICTORY 



It does not seem possible that it was 25 years 
ago last Fall that Edward M. Butler, a senior in 
the Stockbridge School, came into my office and 
asked me to act as faculty advisor to the 1931 
Shorthorn Staff. Ed, as the new editor, had pre- 
sented the idea to Director Verbeck ; he had given 
his approval and thus I became the first faculty ad- 
visor to the Board of the Stockbridge yearbook. 
For the past 25 years I have served continuously 
except for the school year 1934-35 when I was 
on leave and Professor Richard C. Foley took over 
for me for the 1935 book. 

Serving in this capacity with the students over 
the years was a grand experience. I would like 
to pay tribute to each Editor, to each Business 
Manager and to the many students who served on 
each Shorthorn Board. They are the ones who did 
the work, they are the ones who spent long hours 
assembling the material and they are the ones who 
deserve the credit for a job well done. 

By associating with the students in this way 
outside of the classroom I became very well ac- 
quainted with them which has resulted in many 
life-long friendships. While the job as faculty ad- 
visor took quite a bit of my time I never con- 



sidered it a task. On the contrary, I found it to 
be a very satisfying and an exceedingly interesting 
experience. 

Being advisor to a yearbook staff is something 
like being" coach of an athletic team ; some years 
there was plenty of outstanding talent on the board 
while other years there was a shortage which meant 
a shift in the line-up for the various positions. 
However the students always met the challenge, 
made the necessary adjustments and put out a 
very creditable Shorthorn, a publication which re- 
flected the high standards of the Stockbridge School. 
Each year after the book was published and the 
students saw the finished product the comment by 
the Editor invariably was, "This is the best Short- 
horn ever put out, we feel sorry for you and the 
members of the board next year." But like the run- 
ning brook, faculty advisors and students may come 
and go but the publication of the Shorthorn will 
go on forever. 

Yes, my association with the Shorthorn boards 
for the past 25 years leaves many fond memories. 
May the Shorthorn carry on its high standards and 
reflect the continued progress of the Stockbridge 
School.

The purpose of this page is to publish their names, separate 
from any others, so all may know who they are; it is an attempt to 
thank them for their quiet acceptance and untiring labor in com- 
piling the immense amount of material it takes to publish a book 
of this type. 

We gratefully acknowledge: 
Professor Rollin Barrett — Mister Richard Southwick, President 
Mather, Provost McCune, Dean Sieling, Director Jeffery, Mr. Mc- 
Cartney, Mr. Tilley, Professor Vondell, Mr. Hume, Mr. Kojarick, 
Mr. Mitchell Koldy, Dr. A. H. Lindsey, Dr. Denzel Hankinson, Dr. 
Louis Baker, Mrs. Marron Du Bois, Miss Katharine Martin, Miss 
Catherine Heffernan, Mrs. Donald Barnett, Mr. James Burne. 

Our thanks to all those who have made this year's "Shorthorn" 
possible.

YOU MAKE YEARBOOKS FUN 

HERE AT PROGRESS 



in 
"The City of Albany ' 

Working closely with you has been 
truly a wonderful experience. In the 
beginning there was nothing except en- 
thusiasm, ideas and many blank pages. 
Upon this meager foundation you have 
built this beautiful memory book. Our 
work at Progress really is fun . . . 
because we enjoy, so much, getting to 
know such splendid faculty members 
and students as you.
