STOCKBRIDGE 

SCHOOL OF 
AGRICULTURE 

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 
AMHERST • MASSACHUSETTS 




DEDICATION 






William Crocker Sanctuary is an Amherst product 
practically all the way. He was one of the first Poultry 
majors to graduate from Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege. Following graduation in 1912 he spent some time 
in commercial work, and later taught at Morrisville State 
School of Agriculture in New York. 

In 1921 he returned to M.A.C. as Professor of Poul- 
try Husbandry, where for nearly four decades he has 
taught many classes the intricacies of incubation, genet- 
ics and poultry housing. 

A student all the way, he has directed his study 
toward the reason for things; then following up by 
correcting and improving many generally accepted 
theories. This has been exemplified in his teaching and 
caused his students to study methods, rather than 
accepted results. 

In the field of research he is an acknowledged 
authority on poultry house design and ventilation. His 
study of methods is carried over into his favorite sports 
of golf and bowling.

DEDICATION 



Luther Banta came to the University from New 
York state where he graduated from Cornell University, 
and later taught at the Alfred State School. 

The name Banta has always been associated with 
chickens because of his many years of judging and close 
study of the species. An ardent reader and a thorough 
teacher, he has always covered his subjects with detail 
and completeness. 

In addition to his University work he has helped 
with the F.F.A. and 4-H judging contests and programs. 
His interest in judging has also carried him into many 
agricultural fairs in the state and the great Boston Poul- 
try Show. 

He has the happy and sincere faculty of making 
students know that he is interested in them. This is 
proven by the many alumni who .always drop in for a 
visit when they return to the campus, and by the cor- 
respondence he has with his former students.

FOREWORD 



In 1918, the first class of thirty-five students 
entered a new two-year course in practical 
agriculture at the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College. Ten years later this course was officially 
named the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. 
This year, 1958, marks the 40th anniversary of 
the Stockbridge School, now an integral part of 
the University of Massachusetts College of Agri- 
culture. Over 3,500 students have graduated 
during this 40 year period. 

Previous Stockbridge yearbooks have borne 
the name Shorthorn. A new title, STOSAG, 
appears on this anniversary issue. Composed 
from the words Stockbridge School of Agri- 
culture, STOSAG gives the yearbook a signifi- 
cance which is truly representative of all depart- 
ments and subjects within the school. This name 
was originally used for the senior honorary 
society. Thus, on our 40th anniversary, we 
establish a new tradition and proudly present 
the first STOSAG.

TRIBUTE 



"The farmer should and must enter fully 
into the spirit of this wide awake competitive 
driving age"— 1870. 

This statement by Levi Stockbridge reflects 
the philosophy of his own life although he ad- 
dressed the words to other farmers. Realizing 
the need for constant study, Levi Stockbridge 
became what one might call a self made man, by 
studying at home and attending lectures. From 
farmer to college president without benefit of 
a formal college education, he rose to each task 
and performed it well. 

Stockbridge graduates are proud to be as- 
sociated with the school which bears the name 
of this great pioneer in agricultural science and 
education.

ADMINISTRATION 



I 




This issue of STOSAG carries weight of 
great significance to the whole campus com- 
munity of the University. Celebrating forty years 
of service and positive contribution to the hves 
of hundreds of graduates, the Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture has always been one of 
the leading components of this campus. For the 
past, in the present, and toward the future, we 
all take pride in your accomplishments and have 
everlasting faith in the continuance of your 
traditions, your works, and your dreams. 

JEAN PAUL MATHER, 
President 



The Stockbridge School has a long history 
of effective service to young people who wish 
practical and theoretical training in agriculture.. 
We need to build upon the traditions of the past. 
But we need to do what is also a Massachusetts 
and a Stockbridge tradition, to break with 
tradition when it is necessary. It is within our 
ability, guided by the tradition of the past and 
calling upon our resources of imagination and 
our Yankee ingenuity, to meet successfully the 
challenges that lie ahead. I hope that as the 
graduates of the Stockbridge School face new 
times they will loyally help their Alma Mater 
change with the changing times in the forty 
years that lie ahead. 

SHANNON McCUNE, 
Provost 



The name of "Stockbridge" has been prom- 
inent in the history of the University of Massa- 
chusetts from its beginning. Levi Stockbridge 
was the first professor of agriculture, and it 
became his lot to act as President during the 
most trying times of this University. Being a 
practical man, he was able to keep the college 
running partially at his own expense and thus 
save it for future generations of students. 

The reputation of the Stockbridge School 
of Agriculture, as a practical school where a 
student can learn the maximum about his chosen 
field in the shortest time is well established. 
The school could not have been more appropri- 
ately named. Its graduates have reflected glory 
on the name of Stockbridge and their loyalty 
and interest in the University of Massachusetts 
have been in the best Stockbridge tradition. 
DALE H. SIBLING 
Dean of the College of Agriculture 





Best greetings to members of the Class of 
1958. Forty years have passed since the estab- 
blishment of the Stockbridge School of Agricul- 
ture and this has been sufficiently long to allow 
the development of many fine traditions. One of 
these has been school pride in quality of the 
Yearbook-for many years THE SHORTHORN 
and now STOSAG. Another tradition we have 
enjoyed is continued strong support for the 
school from Stockbridge alumni. I trust that 
members of the Class of 1958 will remember 
Stockbridge after they leave Amherst, just as 
earlier classes have. Best wishes to each one of 
you. 

FRED P. JEFFREY 

Director — Stockbridge School 

of Agriculture 






SALUTE 



Clark Leonard Thayer, Head of the Flori- 
culture Department at the University of Massa- 
chusetts, retired on August 31, 1957. He was 
born on November 17, 1890 in Enfield, Massa- 
chusetts. After graduating from Massachusetts 
Agricultural College as a Floriculture major in 
1913, he went to Cornell University as a gradu- 
ate assistant and Instructor. In 1919, he returned 
to Massachusetts Agricultural College to head 
the work in Floriculture. 

Thousands of students have benefited from 
his leadership and many are now in important 
positions. In 1957 Clark Thayer was presented 
with "The Horticulturist of The Year" award. 
Clark Thayer, we salute you!

Kappa Kappa 




As the summer's placement drew to a close, 
the senior members of Kappa Kappa looked for- 
ward to another year of brotherhood, social life 
and scholarship in their "home away from 
home." Returning to campus with a determined 
spirit which is typical of Kappa Kappa men, the 
first project was the replacement of the water 
supply system. All members contributed to the 
heavy work of digging up the old line and laying 
the new one. Next came the installation of a 
new washing machine, followed by a pine panel- 
ing job that converted the cellar into a recreation 
room. In addition, many hours of labor were 
spent by the freshmen pledges on paint-up, 
clean-up and repair jobs to the rest of the house. 

As the year progressed so did our social life 
and activities. We shall never forget the strug- 
gles of our cavemen as they hauled our float 
through the streets of Amherst in the Home- 
coming parade, nor the hours of tedious planning 
and work on our snow sculpture entitled "Bambi 
In the Woods." 







■; .... ^ 





Heavy classroom schedules cut down on the 
number of parties but the quality went up on 
those that were held. 

Memories of the annual Harvest party will 
remain forever and we shall look back with pride 
as we recall that our house was named "best 
decorated on campus" at our Christmas party. 
Whether it was the Christmas party. Sweater 
party, Hobo party or Damon Runyon party; all 
had a great time and new friendships were 
made. 

The annual banquet and freshmen send-off 
was held at Hotel Roger Smith in Holyoke. An- 
other successful year had come to a close at 
Kappa Kappa. 

—Lee Crotvell

As the time draws near for us to say good- 
bye to A. T. G. we look back over the highhghts 
of the past year. All of our members pitched 
in to bring A. T. G. the distinction of being the 
first fraternity at the University to donate 1000% 
to the Campus Chest drive. 

Our failure to place in the float parade was 
soon forgotten when we captured second place 
in the snow sculpture contest with "Cinderella 
Going To the Ball." The only ball Cinderella 
missed was the Roman Toga party and perhaps 
it was just as well when we think of the frosty 
snowmen that "melted" after drinking Halford's 
punch. Other social gatherings during the year 
included the Homecoming party and the Cos- 
tume party with "38" Stone, Amos Wadsworth 
and other original costumes. No party could 
have been complete without one of Louie's 
"specials"! 




Perhaps the outstanding party function was 
the Pajama party. Where else could you show 
up in a fraternity brother's clothes, spend his 
money and court his best girl? 

The pledge banquet was the biggest social 
function of the year. A. T. G. received twenty- 
seven excellent pledges who will carry on the 
traditions of the house. During this banquet 
we began to realize that the time to say goodbye 
to A. T. G. was near. As we go our separate 
ways, let us always remember what our frater- 
nity stands for and above all— remember our 
motto!

FEATURES 




Progress 
Banquet 



The fourth annual Progress Banquet was 
held March 12, 1958 in the ballroom of the 
Student Union building. A delicious meal for 
the crowd of 200 students and faculty members 
opened the festivities. The Stockbridge Octet 
sang several barber-shop numbers and earned a 
well deserved round of applause. 

George Irvine received the most valuable 
football player award, while John Parker re- 
ceived the similar basketball award. Also at 
this time all other players and managers of the 
varsity teams were recognized. 

A new award from the Student Senate was 
presented to Walter Ayers for his leadership 
during the 1957 Horticulture Show. Sixteen 
seniors received Progress certificates in recogni- 
tion for outstanding service to their department, 
club or school activities. The list of honor 
students eligible for the 1958 Stosag honor 
society was presented by Dean Jeffrey. Four- 
teen seniors were selected and given special 
recognition for a job well done.

The 45th Annual Horticultural Show was 
welcomed by a deluge of urgently needed rain. 
This dampened the enthusiasm of the show- 
going public. However, all those who attended 
were greatly rewarded when they viewed the 
"Chrysanthemum Garden." 

As they walked into the garden from the far 
end of the Cage they were greeted by a mobile 
of chrysanthemiuns. Turning, they viewed a 
bubbling fountain surrounded by pools and 
chrysanthemums. All of these colorful arrange- 
ments led them to the garden house. Here on 
top of the garden house Professor Clark Thayer, 
former Head of the Floriculture Department 
here, captured the richly deserved award of 
"Horticulturist of the Year."

Surrounding the main feature many students 
and departments displayed their abilities in 
individual endeavors. Subjects of the exhibits 
ranged from naturalistic to educational making 
the show complete. 

Through the years we will remember and 
cherish this, our Horticultural Show for the joy 
and happiness it has brought to our visitors and 
the enjoyment of being able to be a part of this 
old tradition. Our efforts surely were not in

Little 
International 



Beef, sheep, swine and horses plus 55 
contestants and a gallery of 400 spectators made 
up the 18th annual "Little International Live- 
stock Show" which was held at Grinnell Arena 
on Saturday March 15, 1958. Highlighting the 
show were such features as the "Greased Pig 
Race"; "Coed Milking Contest"; "Premier Show- 
manship Award" and a demonstration by a team 
of oxen driven by Farm Superintendent Hilton. 

Although this show is patterned after the 
great International Livestock Show held annually 
in Chicago, the principal difference is that here 
the students are judged on their ability to prop- 
erly prepare and show the animals instead of 
judging the animals themselves. The ultimate 
goal of this show is to arouse among the students 
a spirit of competition and sportsmanship in the 
show ring. It also affords the teachers and 
students an opportunity to gain new knowledge 
and training outside of the classroom. 

Professors L. V. Tirrell and G. L. Smith of 
the University of New Hampshire acted as 
judges for the various events. The role of 
Special Events judge was carried out by Profes- 
sor E. M. Buck of the University staff. 

The Premier Showmanship Award was pre- 
sented to Charles Shaw, Stockbridge '58. Fred 
Martin, also of the class of 1958 received the 
Reserve Premier Showman Award, while an 
Honorable Mention award went to Ronald 
Gilpatrick, U. of Mass. '59. 









Winter Carnival 



Fireworks, parties, dances, and snow sculp- 
tures welcomed in the 1958 Winter Carnival. 
The gala event was the carni-ball featuring 
Skitch Henderson's band in the main ballroom 
of the Student Union. 

Nature provided plenty of snow and Stock- 
bridge entered "Ada Made It" in dormitory 
competition. "Ada" captured second place and 
A. T. G.'s "Cinderella" also placed second in the 
fraternity division. Stockbridge students can be 
proud of their accomplishments this year in the 
snow sculpture competition. Television films of 
the outstanding sculptures were shown over two 
major networks following the carnival. On both 
occasions, the Stockbridge entries were shown. 







Snoball Dance 




To the rhythm of Win Malone's band, 
many couples enjoyed this year's Stockbridge 
Sno-Ball Dance. The evening's festivities top- 
ped off what was one of the best Winter Carni- 
val weekends in the past few years. With the 
small ballroom of the Student Union filled, the 
Freshmen class should be complimented for 
their work in making this occasion the success 
that it was. 





Food Seminar 



"The 1958 Challenge To The Food Service 
Executive" was the theme of the fifth annual 
Food Seminar which was held on our campus 
during semester vacation. This event is spon- 
sored by the Massachusetts Food Service Edu- 
cational Council in cooperation with the 
University Food Management Course and the 
Universities' Stewards Club. 

The seminar offers a three day course of 
study for operators and supervisors in the food 
service industry with outstanding educational 
and business leaders as instructors. 

Highlights this year included a panel dis- 
cussion by Stewards' Club members, a reception 
at President Mather's home and a banquet 
completely prepared and served by the Stewards' 
Club.

Our 1957 season opened with a 20-6 win 
over Thayer Academy. The line play of 
Captain George Irvine, Halford, Johnston, Mc- 
Kay, Shaw and Beal was outstanding. Darel 
Nowers quarterbacked the club and called a 
good game utilizing the running ability of seniors 
Restuccia, Knowles, Haynes and twin brother 
David. Immediately after this impressive 
opener, an unscheduled opponent appeared in 
the form of Asian-flu and the team was idle for 
si.\ weeks. Although Stockbridge was available 
for each game, our opponents were unable to 
field their squads until the last game on our 
schedule. Lack of game competition was evi- 
dent and Mount Hermon defeated our boys 26- 
13. Despite the lack of games, team spirit 
remained high, and as Coach Kosakowski re- 
marked— "Any .500 season is a good one!"

The season opened with only two returning 
veterans and it was quite evident that rebuild- 
ing would be the main theme. Despite losing 
the first five games it was apparent that victory 
was soon to be enjoyed. 

During the second half of the season the 
boys suddenly found the range. Playing .500 
basketball for the remaining six games they 
posted impressive wins over Holyoke Junior 
College and a double victory over the Hampden 
College of Pharmacy. 

The season's record (3-9) can be mainly 
attributed to inexperience. However with seven 
lettermen returning (including the starting five) 
we look forward to the 1958-59 season. 

John Parker averaged 19 points per game 
and was selected as the team's most valuable 
player. He and Walter Lewis were elected to 
co-captain next year's team.

Pop" Barrett's Page 




A Stockbridge yearbook without a page for 
"Pop" Barrett would be as incomplete as an 
automobile without an engine. For 25 years 
Professor Barrett served as faculty adviser to the 
yearbook, then known as Shorthorn. Since his 
retirement from teaching in 1956 he has been 



engaged in commercial photography. His inter- 
est in each succeeding yearbook remains alive 
through his present occupation. This first issue 
of Stosag contains over 100 pictures that could 
bear the following caption— photography and 
processing by "Pop" Barrett.

Compliments 



This year the Yearbook Staff was fortunate 
to have Mr. James W. Callahan as its adviser. 
For him it was a new experience, as it was for 
some other members on the staff. His tireless 
efforts combined with an excellent personality 
have helped to make this yearbook the success 
it is. The members of the staff join together to 
thank you, Mr. Callahan, for all of your time and 
effort. 






Stepping out of the picture as yearbook 
adviser this year was Mr. Richard A. Southwick. 
His contributions to the Shorthorns of the past 
have been many and his work will long be 
remembered. Other commitments have' pre- 
vented him from taking on this job this year. 
However, the members of the staff wish to 
thank you for your effort, time, and advice and 
hope you have enjoyed your part in this project. 




93 



Acknowledgement 



This issue of Stosag is essentially a record 
of the accomplishments of the class of 1958, but 
it is also a tribute to forty years of service by the 
two year course at the University of Massachu- 
setts. The following people have contributed 
greatly to the success of this first Stosag and we 
extend our thanks: 

to all students of Stockbridge for their co- 
operation, 

to Professor James Callahan, Stosag adviser, 
for his advice and assistance, 

to President Mather, Provost McCune, Dean 
Sieling and Director Jeffrey for their timely and 
inspiring messages, 

to "Pop" Barrett for his excellent group 
photographs, 

to Professor Vondell for the dedication 
pages, 

to Koldy Studios for our excellent portraits, 

to the Short Course Office for the dozens of 
favors you have done for us, 

and to all others who have in any way help- 
ed to make this yearbook a success.
