FOREWORD 



"People-places-and-things." A well known tele- 
vision newscaster uses this phrase to introduce 
special events on his nightly telecast. You are 
invited to share in our version of people-places- 
and-things. The people are you and your class- 
mates; the places are located on and near your 
campus and the things are the events that took 
place while you were here. All yearbooks are 
memory books. Your memories have been pre- 
served between the covers of this edition of 
STOSAG. Our goal has been to produce a 
distinctive yearbook for you. We hope you 
enjoy it.

Stockbridge School of Agriculture 



University of Massachusetts 
Amherst, Massachusetts 






Adrian Herve Lindsey was born on a farm 
in Bryan, Ohio and became a New Englander 
in 1929 when he accepted a professorship in 
Agricultural Economics at Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College, now the University of Massa- 
chusetts. He received his training at the Uni- 
versity of Illinois and Iowa State College, earn- 
ing his doctorate at the latter institution. 

Since 1935, Dr. Lindsey has served as Head 
of the Department of Agricultural Economics 
and Farm Management. After thirty years of 
teaching hundreds of Stockbridge students the 
fundamentals of economics, accounting, business 
management and law, Dr. Lindsey will retire 
on September 1, 1959. We wish him many 
years of happiness and proudly dedicate the 
1959 STOSAG to an outstanding educator and 
friend. 



Dedication 



Adrian H. Lindsey 




Tribute 



When the new land grant college of Massa- 
chusetts prepared to open its doors in 1867, a 
young farmer from nearby Hadley was sum- 
moned to teach the first course in agriculture. 
LEVI STOCKBRIDGE was chosen because he 
firmly believed that practical farming needed 
to be supplemented by scientific knowledge. 
The young men who were enrolled during the 
tenure of Profesor Stockbridge were privileged 
to receive the counsel and guidance of one of the 
world's best agricultural educators. Levi Stock- 
bridge had faith in his teaching, in the future of 
his college and in the future of his state. We 
are the present beneficiaries of that faith as 
graduates of the Stockbridge School in this year 
of 1959. 



Levi Stockbridge

Willard W. Gay 



WILLARD W. GAY graduated from Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College in 1891. He is 
one of the few surviving graduates of this inti- 
tution who has had the privilege of being 
taught by Levi Stockbridge. Mr. Gay recalls 
that in 1887 Professor Stockbridge returned to 
the Gollege to teach the freshman course in 
agriculture. 

The sound principles taught by Stockbridge 
left their mark on Willard Gay who later be- 
came an outstanding landscape architect. Many 
parks and housing developments along the east- 
ern seaboard from Massachusetts to the Bahama 
Islands have been constructed from plans sub- 
mitted by Willard Gay. His accomplishments 
are a tribute to the faith that Levi Stockbridge 
had in those who were to follow him. 




Memoriam 



Ralph A. Van Meter - 1894 - 1958 - A Former President 



Ralph A. Van Meter came to Massachusetts 
Agricultural College in 1917 following gradu- 
ation from Ohio State University. For thirty- 
seven years he served the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts as Extension Horticulturist, Pro- 
fessor of Pomology, Head of the Department of 
Pomology, Acting President and President of the 
University of Massachusetts until his retirement 



in 1954 for reasons of health. In addition to 
heavy University administrative duties he served 
as Chairman of the Town Finance Committee 
and was active in many public and community 
projects. Memories of him will always remain 
on the hill of our campus as we pass the beau- 
tiful dormitory bearing his name. 
Arthur P. French 
Head of Dep't of Horticulture

University President 



University Provost 



J. Paul Mather 



For a complex modern society, poised on 
the edge of the space age, specialized education 
beyond high school has become not a luxury, 
but a necessity. Even those with whom we 
disagree ideologically as a nation agree that 
the scientific and efficient production of food 
and fiber will always be one of the primary 
problems of any advancing society. Agriculture 
is a very vital part of the program of a nation 
characterized technically by atoms, automation, 
and alloys. The Stockbridge School represents 
today, as it has throughout its history, a vital 
contribution to the educational and training 
needs of our complex and evolving society. 
May each of you as you go on to greater ac- 
complishment appreciate the benefits of your 
efforts on the campus at the University of 
Massachusetts. 

J. Paul Mather 
President 



Shannon McCune 

Greetings to the members of the Class of 
1959 of the Stockbridge School. This book with 
its pictures and its accounts of your life here will 
bring back to you through the years many happy 
memories. The Stockbridge plan of education 
which combines practical experience in the field 
with theory and skill courses taken on the 
campus has equipped you well for a useful and 
effective life in the future years. By going to 
such a school on the University campus you 
have been able to participate in and have con- 
tributed color and enthusiasm to the total life 
of our University community. May you have 
the best of luck and think often of your Alma 
Mater. 

Shannon McCune 
Provost 



The Stockbridge School of Agriculture is 
known nationally for its excellence as a technical 
vocational school of agriculture and related sub- 
jects. Each graduate will have the competence 
in his chosen field to begin his career if he has 
taken full advantage of his opportunities while 
here. 

Your education has just begun when you 
have graduated from Stockbridge. By availing 
yourself of other offerings of this University 
you may continue to become more efficient and 
productive in your chosen profession. 
Dale H. Sieling 
Dean of the College of Agriculture 



Dale H. Sieling 



It is a pleasure to extend best wishes to 
each member of the Class of 1959. I trust 
that you may have learned that education is a 
never-ending process. At the very least, you 
should keep learning new things until you are 
90 — and hopefully until you reach the age 
of 100. In many ways, self education is more 
satisfying than the formal classroom type of 
instruction. If attending the Stockbridge School 
of Agriculture has succeeded in rnaking you 
more inquisitive than when you arrived as a 
freshman, then I am sure that your two years 
here have been thoroughly worth while.

Memoriam 



Charles Gamble — A Former Student 



Charles Gamble, a Forestry major in the 
class of 1958 passed away one month after his 
graduation. Those who knew him remember 
Charles as a mature individual with a friendly 
cooperative attitude toward his fellow students 



and instructors. Friends of Stockbridge were 
shocked at the sudden death of this fine young 
man who was ready to take his place in the 
world. Our sincere sympathy is extended to 
his family and friends.

Stosag was estabHshed in 1937 in order to 
recognize the members of the senior class who 
had maintained high scholastic averages during 
their two years at Stockbridge. Election to the 
society requires that the student have an average 
grade of 3.4 quality points or higher. The 
students whose names appear on this year's 
honor roll are placed in the order of rank.

Alpha Tau 
Gamma 



By acquiring a housemother for the frater- 
nity, Alpha Tau Gamma took a giant stride 
forward during the past year. Major physical 
improvements were completed which provided 
adequate facilities for the housemother. In 
addition, the entire first floor was remodeled. 
These improvements were made possible by a 
cooperative work plan involving all members 
and pledges. Funds were raised through car 
washes and a "Slave for a Day" drive which was 
the first of its kind on the campus. These two 
projects earned $400 for the house. An open 
house and tea to welcome our housemother was 
the first social function of the year. Winter 
Carnival was a disappointment because of the 
lack of snow, but we still maintained our sec- 
ondary honors from the preceding year. There 
were many social gatherings at A.T.G. during 
the year including a Roman Toga, a Twin and 
a Kitty party. However, the Pledge party was 
considered the best of all. Following the Pledge 
party, the annual house formal was held where 
twenty new members received their membership 
certificates. The banquet was held in the 
exclusive Wiggins Tavern in Northampton. 
Following this banquet, many of the new mem- 
bers left for their placement training period. 
They will return in the fall to resume their 
fraternity life and carry on the fine traditions 
of Alpha Tau Gamma.

SPECIAL EVENTS 




Horticulture Show 



A "European Square" surrounded by gar- 
dens, shops, and a sidewalk cafe was the theme 
of this year's 46th annual Horticultural Show. 
The student and commercial exhibits were 
admired by over 20,000 spectators as they 
walked along the paths that led through the 
square. Oak and birch trees shaded paths 
edged with green grass and benches. Colorful 
flower carts contributed to the foreignness of the 
scene. Yew hedges surrounding the grass plots 
gave an appearance of early English countryside. 

A pink castle stood in the background of 
the center of the square, surrounded by a floral 
garden. This was an exhibit of Smith College. 
The Holyoke-Northampton Florists and Garden- 
ers Club exhibited floral designs and cut flowers. 
Encircling the square were student exhibits and 
a gayly decorated flower shop where students 
made and sold corsages, dried floral arrange- 



ments and many other items for souvenirs. An 
authentic sidewalk cafe provided coffee, cider, 
doughnuts and sandwiches for hungry specta- 
tors. In addition to the floral exhibits, visitors 
touring the square were treated to special 
attractions provided by other departments. 
Agronomy and Turf Maintenance combined to 
present an interesting exhibit illustrating the old 
method of cigar making. 

No market square would be complete with- 
out a well stocked fruit and vegetable stand. 
This exhibit added a blaze of autumn colors 
to the scene. 

Thousands of favorable comments by the 
visitors leaving the 46th annual Horticultural 
Show indicated that this presentation was one 
of the best.

Union Ballroom where many speakers presented 
valuable information and knowledge about the 
food industry. 

Throughout the seminar, the Universities' 
Stewards Club was very active preparing and 
serving a buffet, banquet, and cocktail party, 
in addition to having charge of housing and 
playing host to the guests. The club members 
also participated in a panel discussion during 
the first session.

Sno-Ball 
Dance 



Again this year, Stockbridge played its 
annual part in the Winter Carnival Weekend by 
sponsoring the Sno-Ball Dance. Crystal Car- 
ousel, was the theme for Carnival Weekend and 
although snow was scarce, carnival spirit re- 
mained high. Decorations in the small ballroom 
of the Student Union consisted of silver horses 
and pink trimmings. Cus Perfito's band played 
fo.x trots, waltzes and other popular requests 
throughout the evening. The ballroom was 
filled with many couples enjoying the melodious 
atmosphere.

Winter 
Carnival 



Winter Carnival week-end arrived without 
snow for the first time in years. Consequently, 
the students and thousands of people were dis- 
appointed because the colorful snow sculptures 
were missing. However, skating demonstrations 
by the Providence Skating Club, fireworks, and 
the Crystal Carousel Ball kept the carnival 
enthusiasts happy. The sculptures appearing 
on these pages are a few of the excellent 
productions from last year's carnival. Everyone 
looks forward to 1960 with the hope that 
the weatherman will cooperate and provide 
enough snow for a real "old fashioned" carnival 
week-end.

Little 
International 



After four weeks of intensive fitting and 
practicing for the big show, the Stockbridge 
Animal Husbandry seniors and University Ani- 
mal Husbandry students, presented the 19th 
Annual Little International Livestock Show on 
March 14, 1959. This show is modeled after 
the International Livestock Show in Chicago, 
but here the students are judged on their ability 
to prepare, fit, and show the animal they have 
chosen. The two top winners in each class of 
Sheep, Swine, Beef Cattle, and Horses then 
became eligible to compete for the Premier 
Showmanship Award. The coveted award this 
year was won by Andre Duprey, a Stockbridge 
Animal Husbandry senior. The Reserve Premier 
Showmanship was won by Ted Pikul, and 
Phil Brouillette was awarded Honorable Men- 
tion. Both are Animal Husbandry Seniors in 
Stockbridge. 

The judges were Professors L. V. Tirrell, 
and G. L. Smith of the University of New 
Hampshire's Animal Husbandry department. 

In addition to the hilarious "Coed Milking 
Contest," a new special event was added this 
year. Although no award was given for the 
"Buckin Barrel" contest, the participants each 
felt a measure of self-satisfaction if they were 
able to stay on for even a few seconds. 

The show serves a dual purpose in that it 
promotes a spirit of competition and sportsman- 
ship while giving the participants a chance to 
get the feeling of the show ring and gain 
practical knowledge.

Progress 
Banquet 



At the annual Stockbridge Progress Ban- 
quet, the school's top athletes and scholars were 
honored by 200 people at a delicious roast 
beef dinner, that preceded the presentation of 
awards. 

It may well have been tagged "Swap Gifts" 
night as the coaches presented their most 
valuable player awards and the recipients in 
turn gave the coaches gifts from their respective 
teams. Walter Lewis won the Most Valuable 
Player Award in basketball, while Paul Amaral 
walked away with honors in the football 
department. 

Dean Jeffrey presented the outstanding 
freshmen and senior students who had earned a 
3.4 quality point average or higher. These 
students earned a well deserved round of ap- 
plause for their achievements.

Danny Santos, Ted Pikul, Jim Hanchett and 
Ev Jones were the only returning lettermen to 
greet Coach Steve Kosakowski at the first prac- 
tice session last fall. Thus, Coach Steve found 
himself in a familiar role with a complete 
rebuilding job ahead. Besides the returning 
lettermen, the team was sparked by seniors Bob 
Lavin, Joe Coyne, Paul Amaral, Andy Duprey 
and Charlie Peckham. Although no wins were 



recorded in five games, the spirit of this team 
never died, and each game was a hard fought 
contest up to the final minute of play. The 
outlook for 1959-60 looks promising with the 
return of hard running backs like Bill Bieren 
and Kenny Hague, and with the hustling line 
of Paul Lepkowski, George Cushing, Bob Allen 
and "Apple" Adriance. 



Maybe if we 



Take a break, boys.

Under new Coach Paul Kollios, the Aggies 
posted an unfruitful 2-9 record. With only four 
returning lettermen, Coach Kollios had his work 
cut out for him. Inexperience was the principal 
reason for the season's record. The team ab- 
sorbed seven straight losses before the win 
column was dented. Monson Academy became 
the first victim of the victory-starved Aggies. 
A second win over Holyoke Junior College was 
sweet revenge because this club had beaten the 
Aggies only by a slim two point margin in the 
first meeting. Senior Walt Lewis captured 
scoring honors with a fine 12 point per game 
average. Another senior, Marshall Cotta, was 
the big man off the boards. Other consistent 
performers throughout the season were Boh 
Costantino, Ed Delmolino, George Cushing and 
reserve Jim Mills. With four veteran performers 
returning next year, we are looking forward to 
an improved record in the 1959-60 season. 




How many ilmes do I have to tell you? 




Lucky for us that Cotta has four arms.

Compliment 




For the second year the yearbook staff was fortunate in having 
Mr. James W. Callahan as its adviser. 

We who have worked on this yearbook, know that we owe much 
of the success of the book to Mr. Callahan, for it was through his never 
ceasing efforts, time, and advice that we will be able to look back on 
the Stockbridge School with pleasant memories. 

So it is that we, the students of the Stockbridge School, join 
together to thank you, Mr. Callahan, for all of your time and effort.

Pop 
Barrett 



When "Pop" Barrett left the University in 
1956, a friend asked about his plans for retire- 
ment. "Pop" quickly replied, "I am not retiring; 
I'm only changing jobs." The remark was taken 
lightly at the time but "Pop" quietly developed 
his photography hobby into a thriving business. 
Graduates of 1959 will remember him as "the 
friendly man behind the camera." 




This issue of STOSAG records the forty-first 
year of the two year course at the University of 
Massachusetts. We express our thanks to the 
following people for their contributions to the 
success of this issue: 

To all Stockbridge students 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 inspiring 

messages. 

To Koldy Studios for our e.xcellent portraits. 

To "Pop" Barrett for our group pictures and 

sports coverage, 

To the people in the Short Course olBce for 

all they have done for us. 

And to all those who have helped in any way 

to make this yearbook a success. 

-The 1959 STOSAG Staff

YOU MAKE YEARBOOKS FUN 

HERE AT PROGRESS 



in 
"TheCify 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.
