DEDICATION 




The class ot 1985 proudly dedicates this edition of Stosag to Dr. Joseph Troll, professor of Plant and Soil Sciences. 
Dr. Troll joined the faculty in 1957 and has taught continuously in the department of Plant and Soil Sciences. 

Dr. Troll has been a good friend to all of his students. He counsels and guides them while they are in school, helps 
many obtain scholarships and is always available tor any type of advice, personal or in reference to a job. Many of his 
graduates are indebted to Dr. Troll tor his help in obtaining work on some of the best golf courses in the country. 

His influence is felt not onl)- b\' Stockbridge students but by University undergraduates and graduate students whom 
he also teaches. In addition, he is responsible for the Turf Winter School eight week program for which turf managers 
from all over the countr\' enroll to update themselves on new procedures and review older procedures of turf 
management. 

Dr. Troll is the recipient of awards too many to enumerate. He is renowned as one of the best turfmen in the United 
States, and is frequently called to golf courses as a consultant. In 1983, he received the Distinguished Service Award of 
the Golf Course Superintendent Association of America. This award is normally given to researchers and very rarely to 
an educator. The presentation of this award is an indication of the esteem in which Dr. Troll is held by his peers. It 
reccjgnizes his extensive knowledge and also his ability to pass on this knowledge to his students. Truly he is an educator 
with whom the Stockbridge student body is extremely proud to be associated. There are many who say that Stockbridge 
School is the Harvard of Turf Management and that Dr. Troll has made it so. We believe this. 

He plans to retire sometime in the near future. It is with regret that we will see this fine man leave us and our best 
wishes g<j with him in whatever he plans to do next!

CHANGING TIMES 

The other day, a group ofTarm Bureau members and I were attempting to discuss the future of the many businesses 
that presently make up our great agricultural industry. (The average age of this group was around 50). As you recent 
graduates might have guessed, most of the discussion centered around the many changes each of the members had 
experienced or watched from the sidelines over the years instead of discussing the kinds of changes we all might face in 
the near and distant future. 

As we all know, it is much easier to discuss historical changes than probable future changes. I believe it necessary to 
study history for it provides us with the reasons why past changes occurred and also the results these changes brought 
about. I hope that our faculty have given you a broad historical perspective for that part of agriculture in which your 
interests lie and then an educated prediction about your future based on that historical perspective. 

When I look at the future of the various segments of agriculture on a world-wide basis, I become more and more 
convinced that here in the United States there is an excellent future for young people seeking careers in most segments 
of the food production, processing and marketing industries. As long as the U. S. economy stays reasonably healthy, the 
future opportunities for careers in the ornamental horticulture industry will be very good, especially in and around our 
growing urban areas. 

Now, looking at the future opportunities in agriculture here in New England and especially Massachusetts, I am also 
very optimistic. Granted that there will be many changes occurring in the future, and I believe that you graduates and 
those that follow you will have the commitment and education necessary to roll with these changes. You will keep 
agriculture productive and an important part ot the State's economy. You will never produce all the food consumed 
here, but what you do produce will be economically important, of high quality and taste, for it will be fresh. You may 
never get every bit of the State landscaped to perfection, but that which you do will be most essential to the quality of 
hfe for our citizens and to the tourism industry. 

Each of you must prepare yourselves to create positive changes in the future and roll with those changes over which 
you have no control. All of us that have something to do with your education believe that you can do it! 



STOCKBRIDGE SECRETARIES 

Stosag and the Student Body, would like to thank the Stockbridge 
Office Secretaries for all their time and devotion that they give to the 
students. 

They are always busy running around, especially now because of the 
computer being down, but they are always willing to take time out to say 
hello and ask if they can help you or to give a friendly smile. When you 
are having problems with the bureaucracy, they go out of their way to try 
to help you solve the problems as much as they can. They are interested in 
what the students are doing and are always posted on upcoming events. 

They are definitely a part of the body, heart and soul of Stockbridge, for 
without them, students would have a harder time with scheduling and 
everyday hassles from the school systems. 

We thank you both, for all your support and dedication you give to the 
students and the Stockbridge School of Agriculture.

JOANIE DAMON 

The Stosag staff, along with Stockbridge Organizations, would like to 
thank Joanie Damon, Senate Office Secretary, for all her help and 
dedication she gives to the students. She helps us to get through those 
crazy times of all the R.S.O. rules, and those long and short Senate 
meetings, and for staying in the lonely Senate Office. 

She always has a friendly smile and a helping hand for the students. She 
does things like run errands, relaying messages, help with the paper work, 
and keep the office going, just to name a few of her skills. 

We are sorry she is leaving us, which will be some time this year. Thank 
you Joanie, for all your dedication to the Stockbridge Senate.

Alpha Tau Gamma Fraternity, is the social fraternity of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. The fraternity is 
comprised of brothers that all come from a variety of environments. This offers a new dimension to the fraternity and 
through pledging, we learn to work as one for the benefit of ourselves and the house. 

The house offers to all Stockbridge men, a unique and progressive life style. This experience is one that will be beneficial 
to every brother throughout his life time. Our bonds extend beyond our college experience our contacts open doors into 
our professional fields. 

This year nineteen freshmen joined the fraternity, and are now part of the 750 ATG brothers. All of the ATG brothers 
have a lot in common. They have pledged, lived and will graduate from this very special educational experience. 

The men of the active chapter are very active throughout Stockbridge and UMass, as well as our personal life. This 
reflects our pride for Stockbridge and Alpha Tau Gamma.

I would like to congratulate the students of Stockbndge on a job 
well done at the 8th annual P.A.C. The workmanship was professional 
and the attitude was the same. Thanks to everyone who helped out in 
every way. When the pressure was on, you all came through. I am 
proud to say that I was the chairperson for this year's P.A.C. and I feel 
priviledged to have had the opportunity to work with the quality of 
students that make up Stockbridge.

STOCKBRIDGE ALMA MATER 

'Neath the elms of dear old Amherst 

Stands our college fair. 

Hail to thee our Alma Mater 

Stockbridge Students go there. 

Working ever, falter never, 

Onward to our goal. 

Give your best to dear old Stockbridge, 

Body, heart, and soul. 

Tho ' the hours are quickly passing 

And we soon must part, 
Thy great halls will not be lonely 

They contain our hearts. 

In the future thought will wander 

Back, and we will see 

Scenes we knew at dear old Stockbridge; 

Always dear they'll be. 





FROM THE EDITOR . . . 



STOSAG had a hard road to travel this year. Things like the lost 

and the not so great Senior pictures, the R.S.O. rules of what you can 

do, and the new bidding system, all the paper work, and some film 

being destroyed by the processor. 

I would like to thank all the people who helped to put this book 

together. A special thanks to Liz Wilson and Kate Singer for all their 

help when I was going crazy. And to Prof. Pira and Ms Zidik for all 

their help and support. 
I think even with all the troubles we had, this years yearbook is 

right beside the rest. 

Thank- You 

Mark Grocott- Editor
