With the increased enrollment 
in the Stockbridge School, com- 
munication between student and 
faculty has become more diffi- 
cult and time consuming. For 
many of the students who have 
studied under Professor Pira, this 
has not been a problem. Because 
of his amiable and outgoing na- 
ture and the personal interest he 
shows, Professor Pira is easily ap- 
proached on a variety of matters. 
It is not uncommon, however, for 
Mr. Pira himself to seek out a 
student whom he feels needs a 
bit of tutoring and to spend his 
own time in such an endeavor. 

Professor Edward S. Pira 

Professor Pira hails from Enfield, Connecticut and holds a B.S. in Agri- 
cultural Engineering from the University of Connecticut and an M.S. from 
the University of Massachusetts. He joined the U Mass. Department of Agri- 
cultural Engineering in 1953 after spending three years with the Veteran-on- 
the-Farm Training Program in Hatfield, Mass. 

In addition to his teaching duties at Stockbridge and U Mass. Mr. Pira 
has taken an active interest in adult education and the continuing education 
of teachers of vocational education subjects. He has participated in state and 
New England wide seminars and workshops on Farm Electrification. In 1969, 
he was one of the principle invited teachers in a week-long Northeast Farm 
Electrification Seminar and Workshop held in South Portland, Maine. 

In 1966, he won the Blue Ribbon Award at the Annual Meeting of the 
American Society of Agricultural Engineers, for a teaching model of a "Sys- 
tem Design for Golf Course Irrigation." In 1969, he was the first recipient 
of the New England Farm Electrification Institute Award in "recognition of 
educational activities with teachers of vocational agriculture, representa- 
tives of New England Power suppliers, and other commercial and industrial 

Professor Pira also holds a long-time and continuing interest in sub- 
surface irrigation systems development. 

Despite his many professional activities, Mr. Pira has found time for 
yet one more task — faculty advisor to STOSAG. He assumed this respon- 
sibility in 1969 and oversaw the publication of the 1970 edition. The 1971 
STOSAG had many problems and countless setbacks which were discourag- 
ing to all involved but Professor Pira remained an influential force. With 
the worries of the 71 yearbook well in the past, he again assumed the ad- 
visorship of STOSAG for another year. His encouragement, patience, en- 
thusiasm, and much sought after advice, were vital elements of this book. 

The staff of STOSAG 72 feels that such an outstanding individual and 
generous a man as Professor Edward S. Pira, deserves a great deal of thanks. 
The only way we know how to express our gratitude is by dedicating STOSAG 
72 to him with fondest wishes for continued success.

Agricultural Business Management 

students in this field of study are prepared for management opportuni- 
ties in agriculturally-oriented companies. Because of its less restrictive 
curriculum, students may, by the careful selection of elective courses, ac- 
quire intensive training in one technical field or a more general training 
in several fields. 

Depending upon their choice of electives, graduates of this program 
will find employment opportunities with agricultural business firms such 
as feed, seed, fertilizer, chemical, and farm supply manufacturers and dis- 
tributors, or as processors and distributors of fruit, vegetable, dairy, poultry, 
iivestock.and nursery products.

Animal Science, one of the oldest courses of study in the Stockbridge 
School, is a combination of animal, dairy, and poultry sciences. Among its 
concerns is the training of students in the fundamental biological and bio- 
chemical principles involved in the development of more efficient animals 
and birds, and more acceptable and useful animal products. 

Through laboratory work, students receive the opportunity to apply those 
principles in selecting, breeding, feeding, and managing the different classes 
of livestock and poultry. 

There is a great demand for Animal Science graduates as foremen, herds- 
men, and managers of dairy, livestock, and poultry production enterprises, 
artificial breeding technicians, in animal research, and in other farm related

Arboriculture and Park Management 

Arboriculture, the care of shade and ornamental trees, is becoming 
more important in this country as citizens realize the necessity of trees 
in everyday life. The Universily offered the first course in the country 
on shade trees in 1895, and now offers one of the few complete two-year 
courses in arboriculture in the United States. It includes tree planting, 
diagnosis and treatment of tree disease, and the identification and control 
of tree insect pests. 

Careers on municipal, county, state and national levels are open to 
graduates as tree wardens or as tree care specialists for parks, highways, 
college campuses, or public institutions.

Enviromental Technology 

The Stockbridge School, upon realizing the immediate need for trained 
Geologists, initiated an intensive course of studies in the fall of 1970 to 
prepare such people in the technical aspects of air and water pollution 

Students receive a basic knowledge of pollution ecology, wildlife man- 
agement, forest land management, hydrology, and water and air analysis, 
along with other pertinent subjects. 

The first group of students to graduate in this field should find a wide 
variety of employment opportunities on the federal, state, and municipal 
levels as aquatic biologists or air pollution technicians for pollution control 
and conservation commissions, as sanitary engineering aides, and as sales 
and service technicians.

The production and marketing of flowers is a major industry in Massa- 
chusetts and many excellent job opportunities are available to Stockbridge 
graduates of this major. 

With such courses as Greenhouse Management, Floral Design, Plant 
Pathology, and Commercial Floriculture, the students receive an understand- 
ing of the basic principals of plant growih. The greenhouses and well-equip- 
ped laboratories on campus, as well as commercial operations off campus, 
provide excellent instruction facilities and provide the student with practical 
information on the problems dealing with operation and management. 

Floriculture graduates may be employed as skilled workers in com- 
mercial greenhouses, arboretums, on private estates, as wholesale and re- 
tail florists, salesmen of garden supplies, and in many instances, owners of 
their own businesses.

Food Distribution 

The Food Distribution curriculum provides students with a background 
in business management and the food sciences appropriate for positions 
in food distribution firms. Guest lecturers include leaders from the food 
industry in New England and the Northeast area. 

Specialized courses in merchandising, operations, and management 
demonstrate the application of technical knowledge to the particular problem 
of operating retail food firms. 

The training received is basic to positions with business firms in phases 
of food distribution that require a thorough understanding of food retailing, 
including work with food wholesalers, food brokers, food manufacturers and 
equipment suppliers. 


Food Processing Technology 

The approach used in Food Processing Technology is 
functional in which major types of processes are studied with 
secondary stress on commodities. 

Trained technologists find positions in food processing 
plants as quality control specialists, process supervisors, 
equipment operators, and as research and laboratory tech- 
nicians. Such training, supplemented with experience, may 
lead to management positions in the food industry. 

A one-year program, awarding a Certificate in Food 
Processing Technology, is planned to allow trainees from other 
countries and food industry employees with limited time avail- 
able, to update and expand their knowledge of the food in-

Hotel Restaurant and Travel 


started in 1938, the Department of Hotel and Restaurant Administration 
trains students for supervisory, and managerial jobs in and eventually owner- 
ship of hotels, restaurants, clubs, and food services. Many laboratory hours 
are spent in the kitchens where students learn how to utilize the latest in 
kitchen equipment for the preparation of commercial foods. Guest lec- 
turers, prominent in the field, are invited to speak in their areas of com- 
petence, thereby further acquainting the student with the industry. 

A major with an ever increasing enrollment, applicants are selected on 
past record, personality, and interest in the field.

Laboratory Animal Technology 

Laboratory Animal Technology, a relatively new course of studies, is a 
brancli of the Animal Science program. It was initiated in 1969, and its 
purpose is to provide technically trained personnel to work with those ani- 
mals most frequently encountered in the research and health fields. 

Students receive certification as junior animal technicians before going 
out on summer placement training. Included in the curriculum are courses 
in radiology, clinical methods, and laboratory animal management, which 
provide the student with the basic skills needed for employment with pri- 
vate and governmental medical research laboratories, as veterinary assist- 
ants, and in pharmaceutical research.

Landscape Operations 

With the growing interest in preserving natural beauty on both public 
and private grounds, there is a demand for men trained to handle the varied 
problems in landscape construction and maintenance. The curriculum is 
designed to provide the student with the basic knowledge and latest tech- 
niques upon which the solution to these problems depends. 

Courses in drafting, surveying, and soil management provide only a small 
portion of the total experience students receive while in Stockbridge. 

Alumni of this department hold such positions as superintendents of 
nurseries, public parks, cemeteries, botanical gardens, and as foremen with 
landscape contractors and real estate developers.

As new memorial parks, play fields, public buildings and golf courses 
are completed, the demand for new specialists in turf maintenance is in- 
creasing. The number of replacements needed annually is also large. 

Students who major in Turf Management readily find jobs as assistants 
to superintendents and as superintendents of golf courses, cemeteries, 
commercial nurseries and landscape service companies as well as golf course 
construction companies and equipment supply dealers. 

Each student's placement training and special interest is considered in 
his chosen field, whether it be park, golf course, or private business. Every 
student is required to keep a record of work done, results obtained, and ob- 
servations made during the placement training period, for use during the 
senior year.

Wood Utilization 

The Wood Utilization curriculum provides a foundation for a broad field 
of employment opportunities through basic study of the fundamental na- 
tures and properties of wood, with courses dealing with the processing and 
application of wood for specific areas of use. 

The graduate of this program is prepared for employment in such enter- 
prises as sawmills, wood processing and fabricating industries, and both 
wholesale and retail lumber yards and sales organizations. 

The University has modern facilities for classroom instruction and lab- 
oratory exercises. Training at Stockbridge is augmented by field trips to 
wood-using enterprises. 

The Wood Utilization program, as a major course of studies, is being 
phased out this year due to the low number of applicants to the program.

The Stockbridge Senate is the governing body of the Stockbridge School 
student body. Its membership consists of both a freshman and senior from 
each major, freshman and senior class officers, and a representative from 
all recognized Stockbridge clubs and organizations. In addition to the offi- 
cers of the Senate there is a social co-ordinator and a representative to the 
Student Union Governing Board. 

One of the major functions of the Senate is to oversee the allocation 
of student funds. Each recognized student organization must submit a year- 
ly budget proposal to the Senate if they wish to be supported through stu- 
dent taxes. All budget proposals for the succeeding year are voted on by the 
Senate members in the spring. Any money remaining after the budgets are 
passed is placed in the Senate Emergency Fund for later use. 

The Senate also serves as somewhat of a mediator between the student 
body and the Stockbridge Educational Policy Committee. Two senators are 
elected to the Committee by the Senate and have the same voting privileges 
as the faculty members. These students report to Senate the discussions 
and proposals of the Committee and then reciprocate by reporting student 
opinions and Senate proposals to the Committee. An example of such co- 
operate work is the initiating of the pass-fail grading system into the Stock- 
bridge School. 

The Student Senate, first begun in the early 1920's is still a vital part of 
the total Stockbridge School system.

The Stockbridge Service Organization, abridged to STOSO is, like the 
Student Senate, an indispensable part of the Stockbridge community. Its 
members freshmen and seniors, assist the administration office at semester 
registrations, hold class elections, and plan social activities for the entire 
student body. 

The major event sponsored by STOSO is the Progress Banquet held 
each March. It is at this banquet that athletic, scholastic, and honor awards 
are given out. Scholarships are also awarded, by STOSO, to the three fresh- 
men and three seniors who, in the opinion of all the STOSO members, have 
contributed the most, in terms of service and general good will, to the Stock- 
bridge School. The "Holly Jolly" Christmas Party, hayrides, and picnics, are 
all organized by STOSO. 

Unlike in the past, where students were elected to STOSO, students 
now join on a volunteer basis with no prerequisites involved. The members 
are, generally, young people who enjoy working with others on various com- 
mittees, and are outspoken enough to make decisions concerning major so- 
cial functions. 

One of the main objectives of STOSO is to unite Stockbridge students 
who are scattered around the campus and create an atmosphere conducive 
to lasting friendships.

Alpha Tau Gamma has been the fraternity of the Stockbridge School 
of Agriculture since 1919. The first president, Robert H. Hall, and a group 
of other men banded together in that year to strengLhen their bonds of 
friendship, loyalty, and values by forming a fraternity to include any other 
such men from the Stockbridge School. In 1940 the fraternity bought the 
property on which the chapter house now stands. 

Both freshmen and senior Stockbridge students enjoy the facilities of 
Alpha Tau Gamma. Some of the events held each year are alumni weekends, 
open houses, a parents day and special dinners on Thanksgiving and Christ- 

The members of Alpha Tau Gamma are led by Duncan Campbell, presi- 
dent; Kenneth Goyette, vice-president; Douglas Hicks, treasurer; and Charles 
Reneau, secretary. These four men help to further the highest value of 
Alpha Tau Gamma: brotherhood.

The "Blue Raiders" put out a hard season this year. Under coaches 
Warren Mason and Bill Murphey we learned soccer techniques and how 
to work as a team. We started out as a group of guys, most of whom had 
never played together, and even some with no previous soccer experience. 
As the season wore on the team became more compatible and grew in size. 

Our first two losses against the U. Mass. J.V.'s and Smith Academy put 
a damper on our spirits, but they quickly rose again when we tied 0-0 with 
Smith Academy and knew we had "out-played" them. At this point the 
coaches really put the pressure on and extended the practices to keep 
the team in conditoin. We ended the season with a 2-1 win against Deerfield 
Academy where the victory was due to high morale as well as skill. 

The Stockbridge soccer team is open to all Stockbridge freshmen and 
seniors regardless of previous experience. The team competes against the 
University's Junior Varsity team and those of neighboring prep schools. The 
main purpose of the team is to make it possible for students to enjoy them- 
selves while improving their athletic skills.

I wish that someone would give a 
course in how to live. It can't be 
taught in the colleges; that's perfect-

don't know any better than the rest

Breaking away from the books, even if only for tine 
time it takes to participate in team sport or to take a 
quiet walk around the campus, helps to clear the mind

As the new Director of Stockbridge, I believe tiiat 
the most important change that has occurred in the 
past two years is the growing recognition of the Stock- 
bridge Schoo lof Agriculture and the unique services 
it offers. Students, faculty, and the School, are finally 
being recognized for what they are and always were: 
1) students dedicated to gaining a technical education 
for the betterment of themselves and society; 2) a 
competent and student oriented faculty who are 
aware of the pressing need for well trained para-pro- 
fessionals and who keep their courses current and 
tuned to the real world; and 3) a School which can look 
back over nearly 6000 graduates and be proud of their 
accomplishments throughout the entire world. 

My best wishes to you as new alumni. 

Dean John Denison 

Dean John W. Denison 

In 1918, a two-year course in practical agri- 
culture was established at the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College. In 1928, the name was 
changed from the Two-Year Course to the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture, in memory 
of Levi Stockbridge, an early president of the 
College and one of its founders. 

The purpose of the Stockbridge School is 
to provide its students with a practical knowl- 
edge of agriculture and related fields. This 
means that less emphasis is placed on theory 
and research and more on the technical as- 
pects of a course of study. The curriculum 
of each major is, in part, based on feedback 
from men actually working in the field. 

Some of these men are Stockbridge alumni 
and others are long time professionals. They 
have a working knowledge of the agricultural 
world and, in most instances, they are quali- 
fied to determine which courses would be most 
beneficial to a young man or woman starting 
the agricultural fields. 

Since the School's establishment, a place- 
ment training period between the first and sec- 

ond year has been a graduation requirement. 
This again stresses the practical agricultural 
status of Stockbridge. It is the School's hope 
that during this period the student will ac- 
quaint himself with the various "tools of the 
trade" and then, upon graduation, will be bet- 
ter prepared to seek employment in the area 
of his interest. With the overflow of students 
in the summer job market it is often difficult 
for Stockbridge students to find employment 
in the area which will be most beneficial to 
them. This is a problem which will undoubt- 
ably get worse and how well Stockbridge will 
adapt to the situation remains to be seen. 

Many students have expressed dissatisfac- 
tion with some of their courses and with Stock- 
bridge in general. It is a common feeling 
among some that somewhere they have been 
deprived of something vital to their college 
education. What it is can not easily be de- 
fined but what it means is that behind the 
youthful exteriors are ambitious minds which 
look to the future with hopes for a more human

Whenever a piece of work such as STOSAG 72 is produced, there are 
always many people to thank for their assistance but most of all for their 
patience. Professor Edward Pira, faculty advisor to STOSAG, is one of these 
individuals. After a very trying time with STOSAG 71, he did not have to 
serve as advisor this year, but the staff is grateful that he did. His enthu- 
siasm was so very encouraging. Dave Lombard, the publishing representa- 
tive from O'Toole & Sons Inc., deserves a great deal of thanks for his genuine 
concern over the success of this book. Much of the effect of a yearbook is 
due to fine quality pictures and Dave Allard, of Steven's Studios, deserves 
the credit and the thanks for so many excellent candid shots. 

No yearbook can be produced without hard-working, self-less individ- 
uals working as a team to, somehow, make it all come together in a mean- 
ingful way. I would especially like to thank Frank Trovato, who was of valu- 
able assistance to me in all phases of production work, including photogra- 
phy, despite his already busy schedule. I truly appreciate the diligence of 
Kathy Hannigan in doing the senior section. It was a large task but Kathy 
handled it all effectively and efficiently. 

I wish to also thank four freshmen for their interest and assistance: 
Brad Hepburn for his conscientious work; Nancy Hoaglund for her enthu- 
siasm and literary contributions; Dotty Greene for helping Kathy with the 
senior section; and Tim Chase for spending numerous hours in the dark 
room custom printing many photos. 

STOSAG 72 is rather small, but in the opinion of those who compiled 
countless pictures and much information for its pages, it is excellent in 
quality. With luck, the larger than usual supplement will be more of the same. 

Best wishes to the staff of STOSAG 73.
