THE VALUE OF AGRICULTURE TO NEW ENGLAND 



In the "good old days", from 1620 to about I960, most people living in New England had some 
understanding of agriculture and its value to them in their daily lives. Since the late I950's, the numbers 
of farmers in New England drastically declined, therefore their visibility and political influence also 
declined. During this same period of time, large areas around our cities were becoming urbanized, 
creating many opportunities for, and demands on, a different segment of agriculture, the growing 
ornamental horticulture industry. 

You, now alumni of the Stockbridge School, can understand me when I say, "it's very difficult to 
measure the total value of the different segments of agriculture to New England or to Massachusetts". 
1980 statistics on cash receipts from agricultural marketings show one measure of value to New England: 



New England 




Massachusetts 


Animal & Poultry 


1034 mil. of $ 


124 


Vegetable & Field Crops 


210 " " " 


41 


Large & Small Fruits 


91 " " " 


46 


Forests 


19 " " " 


2 


Greenhouse & Nursery 


167 " " " 


92 



To these dollar figures, we should add a large portion of the taxes paid by farmers, landscape 
contractors, arborists and the many other businesses that serve the agricultural industry. We should also 
add some dollars as a measure of agricultures social and aesthetic values. 

Believe me, there are more and more people who are beginning to appreciate the social and aesthetic 
values of agriculture such as: I) the tourism/hospitality industry which is now worried about the loss of 
farmers who traditionally have provided picturesque New England farm scenes and have kept much of our 
land cleared) 2) urban dwellers who need trees, shrubs and flowers for peace of mind and for beauty? 3) 
and beautiful parks, recreational areas, and golf courses where social stress can be vented in a positive 
way. How many dollars would you assign to these values? I'm sure it would be substantial! 

If you are ever asked, "is agriculture valuable to New England"? I hope that you will respond similar to 
the way I do. My response is: "You bet your good life it is"!

FOR THE CLASS OF 1984 



It is very possible that I will be retiring in the summer of 1984. The twelve years that I have been 
Associative Director of the Stockbridge School, have been twelve of the best years of my life and I will 
miss all the fun and excitement that went along with my job. 

My love affair with the Stockbridge School of Agriculture actually began when I was a junior in high 
school and attended my very first formal at AT6, and it has gone on non-stop ever since. I love the 
School, I love the students, I love the alumni, and I believe that the Stockbridge School is the finest 
school of its kind In the country. Our alumni prove this over and over by the successful lives they 
lead. 

Soon, you too will be alumni and I do not fear for your futures. You have had the privilege of 
receiving the best education that money can buy and certainly that is a great asset. But it is my 
confidence in you as "Stockbridge People" that assures me of your success in the world. "Stockbridge 
people" are mature, dependable, not afraid to take chances, not afraid to try something different, and 
always willing to work. This willingness is your greatest strength. And along with this, you have my 
best wishes for a happy and rewarding life. 

The Class of 1974 was special to me because we entered the Stockbridge School together as 
freshmen and freshman director. The Class of 1984 will be equally special to me because, together, we 
will be leaving the Stockbridge School with tears in our eyes. 



lona Mae Reynolds 
Associate Director, 
Stockbridge School Of 
Agriculture 




FAREWELL MISS REYNOLDS 



The Stockbridge School of Agriculture has seen many changes since it 
began in 1918. Change is something which can be very controversial. Some 
will never accept a change, while others will welcome it with open arms. 

The year of 1984 brings with it a change which we all agree will be very 
difficult. It is with great regret that we must say good-bye to Miss lona Mae 
Reynolds. Miss Reynolds has been our Associate Director for twelve slendid 
years. She is the finest example of Body, Heart and Soul, and everything 
that our fine school represents. 

It is highly unlikely that anyone realized what the Stockbridge School of 
Agriculture was to gain when Miss Reynolds was hired as Associate Direc- 
tor more than a decade ago. This remarkable woman has thrilled us all with 
her very efficient and down-to-earth manner, and she has made the "Stock- 
bridge Experience" much more special for both students and faculty alike 
with her warm presence. 

So, Miss Reynolds, it is for all this, and all that is felt yet remains unsaid, 
that we dedicate Stosag '84 to you, our favorite woman in agriculture. 

Now, as we hear our recessional song, we have the distinguished honor of 
becoming Stockbridge alumni with your blessing. And may we turn the 
tables, and wish you the greatest of success in your retirement, that very 
same success which you have exemplified throughout your working career 
at Stockbridge and the University. 




Congratulations 

Miss lona Mae Reynolds!

STOCKBRIDGE 

STUDENT 

SENATE 




JOANIE DAMON 



We, the Stosag staff, along with the Stockbridge Student 
Senate, and the P.A.C. staff, would like to thank Joanie Damon, 
Senate Office Secretary, for all the help she has given us through 
the school year. She has followed us and stood behind us, 
through those long senate meetings, and in the often lonely 
senate office. 

Solving problems, relaying messages, running errands, typing, 
and answering numerous questions (not to mention supplying 
candy for all sugar-craving visitors) are just a few of her 
irreplaceable skills which always seem to be done with a smile. 
She is a giver of advice, of incentive, of encouragement, of 
friendship, and of herself. No one can substitute the pleasant 
welcome Joanie gives to all who enter Room 411. 

Thank you Joanie, for being there for us, and for being the 
beautiful person you arel

PROFESSOR EDWARD PIRA 




At this time, the Stosag staff would like to thank 
Professor Edward Pira, Yearbook Advisor, for his sincere 
concern in the production of this yearbook. His 
enthusiasm was a constant reminder that we must not 
only exert ourselves in creating a final product, but that 
we must take care as to the quality of that product. 

This caring for Stosag, as well as for his students, gives 
Professor Pira a special quality which few others can 
match. He is a man of patience and of principle. He has 
helped to motivate and reassure us. 

Professor Pira, you are one of a kind! Thank you.

ALPHA 

TAU 
GAMMA 



The tree grows and extends branches into the sky, and 
leaves fill out the small twigs on the branches to produce food 
to keep the tree strong and healthy. 

A.T.G. is basically the same concept as the tree. The more 
we grow and extend our branches into the sky, the stronger 
and healthier we will become. The massive tree loses leaves 
every year to prepare for winter and await spring, as does 
A.T.G. by graduating seniors every spring and enrolling new 
brothers in the fall. 

I am just one twig on a massive tree that was planted in 1919 
by our founding fathers, and when I leave A.T.G., the memo- 
ries will long be remembered by all who have become part of 
the tree. 





SIGMA SIGMA ALPHA 

We did it. We had a dream, we reached for it, and now we are halfway there. We are not the first. S.S.A. has 
lived in the past, and lack of participation along with lack of female enrollment in Stockbridge caused S.S.A. to die. 
But not in spirit. Our spirit brought S.S.A. back to life. We now exist again, against many odds. Our main goal now, 
is for a house to leave for future sisters and alumni to find shelter within. But with all seriousness aside, we plan to 
have fun along the way, giving our best to dear old Stockbridge. 

We would like to thank Susan Jacobson and Sherry Henderson for ail their hard work and "running around" for 
S.S.A.. We would also like to thank the many people of Stockbridge, students, teachers, alumni, and friends alike 
for their help and support . . . for believing in us. God bless you all.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR PROFESSORS . 

During our two year stay here at the Stockbridge School, we have been privileged to have, as our 
teachers, dedicated and learned professors who not only taught us well, but who were concerned with 
us as individuals. They spent extra time with us when necessary, making sure we understood the 
academic work, and talked with us, or listened as we talked to them about our personal problems. We 
felt that we not only had teachers — we had friends! We would like to thank all of our professors for 
everything they have done for us. And we would like to mention those who were of great assistance to 
our class, and who, for various reasons, will not be here to help and guide future students of the 
Stockbridge School . . . 

As freshmen, we were the last students to appreciate Gordon King ("Mr. Tree") of the Landscape 
Architecture Department, Theodore Leed. a dynamic teacher in the Agricultural and Resource Econom- 
ics Department, Paul Procopio, a warm and concerned teacher of the Landscape Architecture Depart- 
ment, and Franklin Southwick. an authority in his field, of the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences. 

As seniors, we must especially pay tribute to Professor Marron DuBois, a fine Classics scholar, who 
had the thankless task of trying to pursuade us that good writing is an integral part of our lives. As time 
goes on, we will appreciate more and more what she has done for us. We wish her well in her retirement. 
To Professor Douglas Airhart, we say thanks, not only for teaching but for giving so much of his time to 
us as advisor to the Stockbridge Student Senate. We wish him much success in his future. And the 
Department of Plant and Soil Sciences will not be the same without Professor John Zak who, for 44 
years, and who himself was a warm and friendly mentor not only to his own students, but to others with 
whom he came in contact. We commend him for a job well done! 

We will miss all of our teachers and long remember them! 



From The Class President 

Ten years ago most of us were in elementary 
school. Back then, if someone said anything about 
"Nineteen eighty four" our ten year old minds 
visualized some futuristic era with flying saucers 
and little green men (although the trees would 
always be the same). A few years later, in high 
school, we became familiar with George 
Orwell's rather glum novel about the future society. 
Then we found ourselves at orientation being called 
the Stockbridge Class of 1984, and even at that time 
we had no idea how quickly 1984 would creep upon 
us. 

The next thing you know, here we are, driving 
cars that look much the same as they did one 
decade ago . . . none of our classmates have green 
pigmented skin . . . and the only big brother I have 
is a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. 

Orientation gave us the foreshadowing of the 
college life of which we would soon be a part, but it 
was not until September of '82 that we realized the 
great impact that "The Stockbridge Experience" 
would have on us. We have learned about our 
agricultural fields at Stockbridge, and we have 
learned a great deal about life. We will take from 
Amherst, Massachusetts, many fond memories. 
Memories of our first vehicle, or borrowing a 
friend's, we'll remember rooms 411 and 607, and we'll 
think about losing the knowledge, must now be put 
to use as we look down the road to 1994. But this 
time we realize that a new decade is not that far 
away. And as it approaches, so will many changes. 
Changes that will lead us in many different 
directions. Changes that will put a great deal of 
stress on agriculture. But regardless of it all, one 
thing will never change ... we have all had "The 
Stockbridge Experience."

From The Editor . . . 

Wisdom, friends, happy days, and fond 
memories are just a few of the things that 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture has 
brought to all of us. I am thankful to have 
been a part of this, and hope that the 
yearbook staff has succeeded in capturing 
some of your fond memories. 

A big thank you to the people who have 
helped put this book together ... to the 
staff members who have dedicated their 
efforts, to the faculty who have given 
their time, and to dear friends who have 
offered their support. And an extra thanks 
to Jeff Bond for his clever artwork 
throughout. 

I hope you all keep a special spot on 
your shelf for "Stosag '84", as will you 
keep a special place in your heart for the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture.
