^ At the I'amacraw's request Doug McFarland coined this term to name the color 
section of the book. Corollarium is a cognate of the Latin corona meaning gariand, a 
crown of woven Qowers. While we thought we were commissioning a neivword, die wily 
classics professor pawned off a used word, meaning unsolicited payment or gratuity in 
Latin. Though we were too dense to catch Doug's subde appeal for compensation, 
appreciative readers are encouraged to contact Phil Neujahr who has volunteered to act 
as treasurer of the "IVvo Bits for Skip" campaign. , , • ■ ■■■."■■ ■ .'•. ■ :'■

Runnins of the bells 

In the 410 years since Cambridge freshmen 
first raced against noontime cliimes around 
their academic quad only one student has 
completed the circuit before the final bell. 
David Burghley's triumphant run in 1927 
became the inspiration of a memorable 
scene in Hugh Hudson's 1981 film ■'Chari- 
ots of Fire." The Academy Award-winning 
fihn inspired Oglethoi-pe track coach Bob 
linger to try a similar race at Oglethorpe. 
Bob's race had competitors attempt to com- 
plete a 270-yard track with two impossibly 
sharp Uirns around the academic quad in 
less than the 30.92 seconds the carillon 
requires to conclude its cadence. Stephen 
Summerow, Dawn Roberts, Lisa Thornton, 
Will Corum and Robert Canavan ran the 
first Petrels of Fire race on Valentine's Day 
1990. Stephen, who would later gain rec- 
ognition as an All-American sprinter in 
NCAA Division 111, bested the other runners 
but was unable to beat the clock. 
After the race's first running it was incor- 
porated into Oglethorpe Day activities, foO- 
owing the convocation at noon. When Bob 
noticed convocation attendees skipping the 

race to go directly to lunch, he decided to 
run the race before the convocation at 1 1 
a.m., with the beUs rigged to ring twelve 
times. Through his creative anachronism 
Bob succeeded in drawing a larger crowd 
each year, but for the '98 race this schedul- 
ing quirk had serious repercussions. Since 
Jim Bohart's arrival in '72 he has served as 
custodian of the carillon. Jim's repeated re- 
quests for refurbishment of the bell-ring- 
ing apparaUis were finally heeded in '97. 
Unfortunatelyjim had not famiharized him- 
self with the new microprocessor-controlled 
time strike system before Oglethorpe Day. 
Consequently he worried that if he tried to 
alter the bell program to ring the bells 12 
times at 11 a.m., he might risk rendering 
the bells mute for the race. Instead the de- 
cision was made to let the bells start the 
race, and to let Bob Unger's stopwatch de- 
cide if the runners would have beaten the 
t\vehth bell. Surprisingly, freshman Mark 
Olas beat the specified time and was judged 
the first wmner of Petrels of Fu-e in the race's 
nine-year history.

First a warning, musical; an indescribable pause; 
a suspense; then the hour irrevocable. The first 
leaden circle dissolves in the air as Mark Olas and 
Matt Pazdehiik spark Petrels of Fire on Oglethorpe 
Day, February' 12. Due to technical difficulties with 
newly refurbished electronics in the bell tower, the 
carillon clapped only 1 1 peals, but according to Bob 
L'nger's stopwatch Olas would have beaten the twelfth 
toll. In the race's previous 8 years, no one has beaten 
a clock.

Fresh meat 

Student groups quickly detect new 
blood in the small campus gene 
pool. Freshmen and transfers 
become half-willing agents in a 
strange communal enema. The 
jetting of new students into the 
student body touches off an intense 
outpouring of attention and 
affection. Though this rush is brief 
its effects reach far. While non- 
Greeks are still urging would-be 
joiners to attend a first meeting, 
Greek organizations push nishees to 
make commitments that will extend 
through the remainder of their 
college years and beyond. The 
success of the Greek system at 


Oglethorpe depends on the 
persuasiveness of fall rush. The 
characteristic devotion of fraternity 
and sorority members to the present 
and future character of their 
organizations is unmatched by other 
campus clubs. While the use of 
institutional resources made 
possible by dues-paying members — 
like exclusive campus housing 
facilities and rush budgets — 
cannot reasonably be emulated by 
other student groups, the planning, 
enthusiasm, and determination of 
Greek nishers could sen'e as a model 
for ambitious leaders of un-lettered

— then Lee Boggus — took 
direction from Vicky Weiss in "She 
Stoops to Conquer,'' one of the 
most ambitious productions of 
Vicky's tenure as theater director 
('77-84). Lee's decision to make 
Oliver Goldsmith's restoration 
comedy the inauguriil show on the 
new stage lent a sense of continuit}' 
to the dramatic change of venue. 
Prior to Vicky's "81 production of 
"She Stoops," the play was 
performed at Oglethorpe in '35. 
Opening night October 10 
marked the beginning of a new 
era for Oglethorpe theater. For the 
first time student drama had a 
space on campus designed 
specifically for theater. The 
limitations of the multi-purpose 
Lupton stage demanded creative 
problem solving from its 
directors, actors, light technicians 

and set designers. The jern-rigged 
sound and lighting: the scant 
backstai^e; and the ktk of adequate 
dressing rooms engendered a love- 
hate relationship between the 
theatrical home and its inhabitants. 
Before Lupton .Vudilorium's 
completion in the late 'ZOs. the 
Players — as the student theater 
group was known prior to '91 — 
presented their productions off- 
campus at venues like the .Atlanta 

To commemorate the estab- 
hshment of Oglethorpe theater in 
a new space. Lee and Vicky 
organized a reunion for Pla\ ers and 
Playmakers past. Before the final 
performance of "She Stoops" the 
link between theater past and 
present was further cemented by 
the ceremonial transfer of N** endell 
Brown's ghost from Lupton to 
Conant. Wendell directed the 
Players in the '40s and '50s and 
according to Players lore his spirit 
haunted Lupton Auditorium. 

The Towel's big night 

During Linda Taylor' second 
semester at Oglethorpe in spring 76 
freshmen Betsy Edge and Mehssa 
Schiltz came to her with the idea of 
reviving the school's dormant 
literary magazine. After agreeing to 
help, Linda joined her sUidents in 
search of a campus meeting place. 
Office space scarcity impelled the 
group up the stairs leading to Lowry 
Hall's fourth floor The disused 50- 
year-old tower looked unfinished. 
Without heat or electricity its only 
furnishing was dried catshit, a 
leftover from the residence of Harry 
Dobson in the '50s. The eccentric 
music professor hved in the tower 
with liis 35 cats. Though the tower 
never served as the magazine's 
home, it came to symbohze a ruined 
tradition, a consciously ironic 
namesake for a hterary revival. In 
the 22 years since its first 
pubhcation in '76 The Tower has 
come out at least once a year 
featuring poetry, prose and non- 
verbal art. 
In spring '79 The Tower sponsored 

the first Night of the Arts. Held in 
the Talmage Room the program i 
complemented literary readings 
with musical performances. In 
addition to smdents and faculty, the 
event feamred poets and musicians 
from beyond campus. The Tower's 
decision to provide wine to 
performers and attendees was a 
significant draw. Through the '80s 
the event's planning took on greater 
importance in Linda's life. She 
planned the first Night just as she 
was beginning to write poetry as an 
adult, and on at least two occasions 
the event has inspired her poems. 
The Tower sponsor has left the 
responsibility for organizing the 
Night to students, but she continues 
to take great interest in the event. 
"I think what I really loved about 
it was it was so unrehearsed. It was 
raw. It had spontaneous highs and 
lows. Higher and lower than what 
one would have expected. There was 
a kind of community and humihty 
about the whole thing. Which I still 
think is true." 


phuLu h) Jern Portwui 

The namesake of The Tower never served as an 
official meeting place. In fall '98 the tower required 
a blue vinyl prophylactic as the naked battlements 
provided no protection against leaking rainwater. 
Unlike 76 there was more than kitt\' litter at stake on 
the top floor of old Lowry Hall. The hardwood floors of 
the Oglethorpe Museum's administrative offices would 
not react well with unexpected moismre. The tower is 
a distinctive feature of old Lown' Hall's collegiate gotliic 
facade which mimics the gateway tower of Corpus 
Christi, O.\ford — James Oglethorpe's honorary ataia 

During intermisssion at Night of the Arts October 
24, attendees nourished themselves on fresh art 
and finger foods in Hearst 101. Zada Danziger 
coordinated the visuals; Jeanee Ledoux, the victuals.

rendering of Night of the Arts emcees Doug

upon "King Lear" imagery suggested by the crown and 
coxcomb the two briefly donned during the event. 
Though given photographs to work from, he relied on 
his imagination to produce the rubric for his charcoal 
sketch. Matfs tragic subjectivity aged, ruddied and 
crazied Doug to emphasize the tension between king 
and fool.

Dave's Passion 

Shortly after his arrival to campus 
in fall '94 Dave Pass began to 
posture himself as the guts of the 
Class of '98. Like a young legislator 
new to the Hill, Dave quietly carved 
a niche for himself. He intially 
eschewed the tangled web of student 
government, dechning to run for the 
freshman class presidency Though 
not a candidate he made himself a 
player in the race. During an open 
forum for would-be officers Dave 
dismantled the promising pohtical 
career of front- rumierjolm Tole with 
a deft rhetorical rope-a-dope. Dave 
baited Handsome Johnny with a 
seemingly innocuous question only 
to skewer the unsuspecting tool's 
response with a fatal soundbite. 
Rather than squander his growing 
clout in the partisan roadblocking 
of the Oglethorpe Student 
Association, Dave assumed the 
leadership of the International Club. 
Without fanfare he honed liis game 
amid malleable foreigners. The 
sheer force of Dave's personality 
revived the fledghng organization. 
He breathed hfe into the group that 

had stumbled somewhere between 
mediocrity and non-being. The 
club's annual International Night 
would be Dave's coming-out party. 
Under the capable freshman's 
careful direction the event exceeded 
all expectation. And there was Dave 
in suit and tie, quipping and 
cracking behind the podium, 
twirling Spanish dancers and 
otherwise mastering the ceremony 
Dave was an easy choice for the 
OAK Freshman Award and a shoo- 
in to be inducted into the honorary, 
Oglethorpe's most selective, two 
years later He did yield to pressures 
to represent his classmates in 
student government in varying 
capacities for the remainder of Ms 
collegiate tenure. In his 
commencement speech as senior 
class president Dave shared the stage 
with Governor ZeU Miller. Zell was 
impressed enough with Dave's 
remarks to reference them in his 
own address. Truly Dave is a 
statesman for Oglethorpe and

Wendell's Boar's Head 

Back in the fall of 1944, with a to- 
tal enrollment of 35 (to become 25 
after Christmas exams), and with 
ties to the past all but nonexistent 
Oglethorpe was looking desperately 
for some foundations to build upon. 
We started at least two traditions a 
day. One could not stumble on the 
iron step rims without it becoming 
a tradition. We stiU stumble, but 
no one celebrates it any longer. One 
tradition that does remain, however, 
is the annual Christmas party — the 
Boar's Head Celebration. 

There was nothing original in our 
getting this going; Queen's College, 
Oxford, had antedated us by some 
700 years. The story, as they tell it, 
began one pre-Christmas season with 
a student walking in a wood near 
the college reading a Greek book 
when he was attacked by a wild boar. 
Lacking any other defense he shoved 
the book down the boar's throat, 
choking him to death. Students sal- 
vaged the creature, and the head was 
cooked for the hohday feast. When 
it was carried into the hall the col- 
lege greeted it with song, including 
a boar's head carol. Yearly to the 
present time, the ceremony has been 
repeated in all aspects except the 
kiUing of the boar 

Many colleges have since started a 
similar event, and so, said the pio- 
neers of 1944, what could be more 
appropriate for Oglethorpe, whose 
patron had heraldic arms showing 
three boars' heads. 

That first year we had the late 
Roosevelt Walker from the Univer- 
sity of Georgia, well-known as a 
singer of EUzabethan ballads and 
carols, to carry the head (un- 
cooked) in on a platter while he 
sang the Boar's Head Carol. This 

done in costume gave the old En- 
ghsh air to the occasion. A general 
songfest and refreshments followed. 
The next year, with more time, we 
became more elaborate. Four fac- 
ulty children about so high (now 
all in coUege or out) were pages 
carrying in the head. They were fol- 
lowed by recorders and choir mov- 
ing into the Hall of Phoebe (Arts, 
Administration Building, depending 
on how far back you go) singing the 
carol. Then came a varied program 
of choir, instruments and general 
carol singing — and of course re- 
freshments. In 1946, the newly re- 
activated Boar's Head Honorary Fra- 
ternity (also named after the heral- 
dic arms) offered to take over the 
decorations and general organiza- 
tion. We were now becoming too 
large and sophisticated for all stu- 
dents, faculties, families and any 
passing stranger just to come in and 
lend a hand. 

Only one more innovation. Do you 
know how hard it is to get a pig's 
head with the hide on it? The law 
says it must not be. And an un- 
cooked head, skinned ! 

Well after a few years of illegal ac- 
tivity, various groups purchased a 
stuffed, genuine wild boar's head. 
He is very ferocious and very per- 
manent. To lend the proper medi- 
eval touch, the hunter who sold it 
claimed he killed it with bow and 

If we ever leave Oglethorpe, one 
of the fondest memories that wiU 
go with us, will be of the Great Hall 
in the glow of firehght and candles, 
the tree in the corner, the Advent 
wreath hanging from the beams, and 
the chorus looking down upon us 
from the stairs. Merry Christmas! 

pholo from '66 Yamacraw 

Wendell Brown arrived at Oglethorpe in '44 and taught En- 
glish until '66. Ron Carlisle lent a bit of history to the first 
Boar's Head's in Conant by reading three Oglethorpe vignettes 
recorded by Wendell in October '60, including the loved professor's 
memories of Boar's Head's origin. Before OAK came to 
Oglethorpe in the late '70s, the Boar's Head Honor Fraternity and 
Duchess Club served similar honoran' functions. The coeduca- 
tional OAK circle absorbed the gender exclusive honoraries. 
The stuffed boar's head Wendell describes was not as permanent 
as he thought. These days Aramark buys a pork head from the 
International Farmers Market in Chamblee and roasts it in the 
cafeteria kitchen.

Geekin' in the free world 

OAK faculty liaison Marshall Nason coor- 
dinated the largest and most competitive 
Geek Week in the event's nine-year history. 
Over 60 students representing 15 teams 
battled for bragging rights, cash and prizes. 
Christina Bumham's Mysteiy Economist mas- 
tery and Linnea Dyer's creative writing pro- 
pelled the Idiots Savant past perennial iilso- 
ran Trustee to top the team standings. Patrick 
Floyd, Amy Katz and James Rissler led a tight 
field for individual honors. 

Joe Knippenberg organized the first Geek 
Week in '90. Joe's creation incorporated the 
popsicle stick bridge building contest 
Michael Ruhson held in his Classical Me- 
chanics class and the Division V's 640K 
Spreadsheet Run. Joe continued to nm Geek 
Week for a couple years before handing over 
the estabhshed event to OAK. 

Interest began to dechne in '95, and a dis- 
appointing '97 tin-nout prompted Marshall 
to revamp the winter week of academic, 
trivial and quirky contests. Marshall enhsted 
the help of veteran geek Patrick Floyd and 
OAK'S James Rissler. The threesome re- 
thought every aspect of the week in an at- 
tempt to make it more attractive to students 
who had not participated before.

harder than efficiena would permit. During the 
first couple of possessions .Matt did not play 
like a veteran, did not manage his limited re- 
sources with thrift, but began the game with 
the type of jumpy edg\' defense that wa-stefully 
dissipates energ\. He played end-of-the-bench- 
freshman defense, desperately tning to impress 
a coach during three urgent minutes in the 
middle of the first half. But the senior captain 
had no one to impress, had nothing left to prove. 
Matt played on his most talented Petrel team 
his freshman year Mer a first round e.'^t from 
the Division III national tournament, he watched 
as the stars of that squad moved on. Cornell 
Longino and Andy Schutt. then R\ an Vickers and

ber of the '94-'95 team. Going into the "9~-

Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference. But 
Matt approached the year with enthusiasm. Af- 
ter an off-season of rigorous workouts with 
former OU assistant coach Tern- Gorsuch. he 
entered the year in his best shape since high 
school. The sting of the preseason appraisal 
became a point of inspiration. Though chances 
at a conference championship faded in Febru-

a respectable 3rd in the conference, ahead of 
five of the coaches who had overlooked diem.

For your halfiime pleasure 

Though he always appreciates good 
ballliandUng, basketbdl coach Jack 
Berksliire wanted no crotch-grab- 
bing on his floor. The OU Dancers 
phinned to showcase some serious 
grabbing of crotches during their 
scheduled performance at haUtime 
of the men's basketbiill game Feb- 
ruaiy 1 1 . The Dancers were already 
costumed and limbering up palms 
when Corrie Hogan tightened her 
hold over the group she founded the 
previous semester. Just 15 minutes 
before the opening tip, the Danc- 
ers' director told them they would 
not be performing at the half. Corrie 
agreed with Jack Berkshire's deci- 
sion that the routine was inappro- 
priate for the basketbiill crowd. At 
first the troupe thought Corrie was 
jerking their collective ch;un, but 
they soon came to grips with their 
situation. The Dancers' happy hands 
turned to white-knuckled fists of 
rage. They had practiced too long 
and told too many friends about the 
show. What would their sponsor 

Approximately 100 students 
packed the Schmidt Recreation 
Center gym adjacent to Dorough Field 
Ftouse February 1 1 to watch the OU 
Dancers give what would be their fi- 
nal performance. 

Irwin Ray say if he knew they would 
grab no crotch this night. In a stroke 
of genius they took matters into 
their own hands. They circulated 
through the bleachers and spread 
the word that the location of the 
dance had been changed to the 
Schmidt Center gyin. If Jack didn't 
want them grabbin' crotch on his 
court, then nuts to him. 

The Stormy Petrel reported that 
only 14 spectators remained in the 
home bleachers during halftime. 
Nearly every student left the field 
house for the adjacent Schmidt Cen- 
ter And there before an enthusias- 
tic audience they grabbed crotch as 
they had never grabbed before. Af- 
ter the performance Corrie initially 
attempted to disband the group, but 
Irwin Ray would not let such fine 
crotch-grabbing desist. Corrie re- 
signed as director instead. Irwin 
reasoned the Dancers' performance 
was valuable if it had touched just 
one person.

tine with flair and precision. As choreog- 
rapher, Manh borrowed liberally from the 
d;mce sequences in Janet Jackson's "If video 
when he designed the Dancers' controversial 
interpretation of Ms. Jackson's song.

Before the completion of Oglethorpe's first building — to 
become Hearst Hall in '48 — Thomwell Jacobs began to use 
this artist's rendering of campus in promotional materials. The 
only constructions completed to resemble elements of the ambi- 
tious 14-building plan were Lupton and Lowry.

'homwell's mother's health began a steady decline after giving birth on 1 5 
February 1877. ThomweU was not yet two years old when his mother died. 
)mwell's father indicated in his diary that the boy had hastened his mother's 
sing. When Thomwell became aware of the words in his father's journal, "May 
make noble use of a life purchased at such a price," he carried his mother's 
th sentence like a cross until he founded Oglethorpe University. Seeing this as 
fulfillment of his father's wish he had the haunting phrase carved into a granite 
lar and placed between Lupton and Hearst halls. 

Thornvvx'll Jacob.s often re- 
counted a conversation he had 
as a young boy with his grandfa- 
ther Ferdinand Jacobs, a profes- 
sor at Old Oglethorpe [ niversity. 
When the youngster told his 
grandfather of his wish to attend 
Oglethorpe University, the elder 
Jacobs repHed, "No, my boy, you 
will never stand on the 
Oglethorpe campus." 

When Thornwell came to Atlanta 
in '12 to help raise funds for 
Agnes Scott College, the 
Princeton-educated Presbyterian 
minister from Clinton, SC fell in 
love with Atlanta, and with 
academia. After acquainting him- 
self with Atlanta's elite during the 
successful campaign, Thornwell 
turned liis sights toward found- 
ing his own school. From Pres- 
byterian pulpits throughout the 
South Jacobs appealed to South- 
erners' sympathy for the Lost 
Cause. He made Old Oglethorpe 
a casualty of the war between the 
states and appealed to Ills listen- 
ers to "irrigate the educational 

Sahara" which the South of the 
early 20th century appeared to 
be. ' 

Thomwell's vision of Oglethorpe 
consumed him. Possessed with 
enthusiasm onl\ \Jsionaries and 
fanatics can understand. 
Thomwell attached a hoK si^yiifi- 
cance to his educational crusade. 
The new school's identity grew 
out of the imagination — neu- 
rosis? — of a man who once 
quipped to a fellow Presbuerian 
minister that they might collabo- 
rate to write the Third Testa- 

For nearly three decades 
Thomwell presided over the in- 
stiUition he had founded. Though 
his successes against all odds 
were undeniable, tning times in 
the early '40s prompted a request 
for the presidents resignation in 
■43. Thornwell knew what had 
become painfully clear to his 
colleagues, he could never sepa- 
rate himself from his school. 
Half a centun later. Oglethorpe 
remains a strange blend of 
Thomwell's ideals and delusions. 

Though no phms have been made to honor Thomwell Jacobs last request 
— to be buried under the bell tower — this portrait by Charles Naegele

Adopted grandfather 

The misleading sign out front 
welcomes visitors with two 
staturous fictions. Present-day 
Oglethorpe connects only in 
name to the school chartered in 
1835 by the Hopewell Presbytery 
to be built in Midway GA. Old 
Oglethoi-pe never recovered from 
the Civil Wai- and closed its doors 
in 1869. The board of trustees 
charged Presbyterian pastor Wil- 
Uam Cunningham with finding a 
new location for the defunct 
school. Atlanta, the capitol of the 
New South, was chosen as the new 
home of the school which had 
operated in close proximity to 
the South 's antebellum capitol in 
Milledgeville. After an inauspi- 
cious beginning in Atlanta the 
school closed its doors for good 
in 1872. 

The "resurrection" of Old 
Oglethorpe was the product of 

the formidable imagination and 
shrewd fundraising ideas of 
Thomwell Jacobs. By appropri- 
ating the name of the long-ex- 
tinct school, Thornwell hoped to 
acquire assets foreign to iuiy new 
school: a sense of tradition and 
a preexisting pool of alumni. 

The second m^lh on the sign 
out front is the description of 
Oglethorpe as a university. Even 
with the relatively recent addi- 
tion of graduate programs in edu- 
cation and business, Oglethorpe 
is more precisely a college than 
a university. Though it may sound 
hke institutioniil nitpicking, the 
distinction was compelling 
enough for Oglethorpe to offi- 
cially change its name to 
Oglethoi-pe College in '66 until 
71, when an urge for artificial 
prestige tamed the instinct for

On the 139-year anniversary of James Oglethorpe's birth, 21 
December 1835, the charter establishing Oglethorpe Uiiiver- 
sit\' was issued. On 31 March 1837 the cornerstone was hiid for 
Central Hall. Joseph Lane Sr completed the first c;impus building 
in 1840 at the cost of $38,000. Central Hall contained a large 
chapel surrounded by faculty offices, classrooms aiid a library. A 
museum was housed in the basement. This hthograph of Central 
Hall graces the dust jacket of the school's definitive history, Allen 
Tankerslcy's "Life at Old Oglethorpe." 

On his mother's advice Sidney Lanier attended Oglethorpe. Oglethorp 
most renowned 19tli century alumnus served a.s president of the Tlialis 
Society and graduated at the top of liis class in 1860. Long before the str( 
intersection at the entrance to Post Oglethoqie apartments, Lanier cross 
paths with James Woodrow. The school's distinguished professor of nai 
nd science became a mentor to young Sidney. Before his untimely dei 
Sidney achieved considerable stature as a Southern poet.

season, the talented sopho- 
more ended his college ca- 
reer by signing a contract with 
the minor league Atlanta 
Crackers. In his 20-year pro- 
fessional career, the power- 
hil shortstop hit .310, with a 
career-high .388 in '36. In 
'64 he was inducted into the 
Major League Baseball HaU 
of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. 
Luke's Oglethorpe record for 
single-season batting average 
stood until Tim Crowley hit 
.434 to break it in '97. Steve

\fter winning the NCAA Southern region, the '62-'63 Petrels

80 wins in his ten-vear career as coach in the '50s and '60s.

Stortny Petrel 

Oglethorpe entered "big time 
football in fall '20, with the ambitious 
goal of defeating (ieorgia Tech. The 
(ioldeii Tornado, as Tech was then 
known, held the Petrels scoreless until 
'22. But by '25 Tech could no longer 
consider Oglethorpe to be a warm- 
up game. The Petrels gave their 
crosstown rival a scare losing 13-7. 

The high-water mark of Oglethorpe 
football came on 25 September '26, 
w'hcn the Petrels achieved their goal, 
beating Tech 7-6 before a stunned 
crowd of 10,000 at Grant Field. In 
the close contest Tech coach Wilham 
Alexander played 31 Yellow Jackets 
while Oglethorpe coach Harry 
Robertson used only 15 players. Harn- 
opted for an extremely conservative 
game plan. Running from its famed 
mihtary shift, Oglethorpe threw no 
passes. The Yellow Jackets took to the 
air with 14 passes, reportedly more 
than had been attempted since the 
forward pass was invented, but only 
four were completed for a total gain 
of eight yards. 

The turning point of the game came 
midway in the third quarter. 

Oglethorpe quarterback Kenneth 
"Nutty" Campbell, the apparent ball 
carrier, raced around right end: 
houeser. after the shift the ball had, 
in fact, been snapped directly to 
freshman halfback Columbus "Cy" 
Bell. The fake worked beautifully Cy 
dashed around left end unchallenged 
at first. When the Tech defenders 
recovered, Cy executed a shifting open 
field run that ended with a swan dive 
into the end zone. Reliable Nutty 
Campbell's dropkick on the point 
after the touchdown was good. The 
7-0 lead stood until the end of the 
fourth quarter, when Tech scored a 
touchdown. With the game on the 
hne Oglethorpe smothered the exira 
point attempt and thus earned one of 
the most starthng upsets Southern 
football has ever known. 

At the end of the game, the scene 
enacted by the Oglethorpe fans was 
pure bedlam. The Atlanta 
Constitution reported that the 
impromptu street parade formed by 
Oglethorpe fans "ruined streetcar 
schedules and the peace of do-wntown 
Atlanta. "

Appetite Jor Construction 

If viewed in time-lapse photography the 
physical transformation of campus in the 
'90s would be astonishing. During the 
presidency of Donald Stanton Oglethorpe's 
square footage has doubled. The 
renovation of Lowry Hall into Weltner 
Library in '91 began the architectural 
whirlwind. The $5.5 million Conant 
Performing Arts Center capped a building 
boom unrivaled since the '60s. Greek 
housing ('93), Schmidt Recreation Center 
('94), physical plant ('96) and the once- 
new residence hall ('96) went up ahnost 
as quickly as flora, fauna and other 
impediments could be cleared away 
While the indigenous campus ecosystem 
has taken a hit during Donald's presidency, 
the work of the Campus Beautification 
Committee has vastly improved 

Oglethorpe's artificial landscape. After 
memorial plantings were undertaken to 
commemorate the service of Manning and 
Martha Pattillo in '88, Barbie Stanton 
wanted to further pursue honorary 
plantings and to improve the general 
aesthetics of Oglethorpe's grounds. Barbie 
cofounded the Campus Beautification 
Committee, and the group has been 
planting ever since. The Pattillo crepe 
myrtles and oak were joined on the 
academic quad by trees honoring past 
presidents of the university. Plaques are 
placed at the bases of all presidential 
plantings, but not all memorials are 
marked. For instance the magnohas lining 
the sidewalk between GosUn and Lupton 
honor longtime history professor Leo

Frank Anderson 

The namesake of Anderson Field came to 
Oglethorpe in '15 to sene as athletic director. 
From ' l6-'44, Frank developed 27 baseball play- 
ers who went on to play professionally In addition 
to his athletic duties Frank taught mathematics 
and served as registrar. It was Frank's suggestion to 
name the annual the yamacraiiin '19. 

Roy Goslin 
One year after the completion of the upper quad 
dorms in '68, a $128,733 grant helped fund con- 
struction of a new science building. .Named for se- 
nior science professor Roy Goslin, the building re- 
placed an even shoddier 30-\ear-old prefabricated 
strucuire made of surplus World War II material. 

Elgin MacConnell 
After five nameless years, the mini-gotliic gatehouse was n 
to honor Charles, Maijorie and Elgin MacConnell. Ch 
taught at Oglethoi-pe in the '40s. Maijorie served as reg 
from the '50s through the '70s. Charles and Mai-jorie' 
Elgin came to Oglethorpe in "49. He served in many dift ; 
capacities before retiring in the mid- '80s. Students knew 
as Dean Mac. 

Harrv' Putnam Hermance 

The executive with the FW. Woolworth Company was invited to become an 
Oglethorpe trustee in '17. When members of the football team asked him for 
help developing the infant athletic program, Harry replied, "Boys, I don't know 
how much I'll be able to help, but I'll sure do my damnedest. " On 4 December 
' 19 Harry pledged to fund the construction of a stadium with a seating capacity of 
40,000. Harry is pictured here enjoying the dedication of the first section of his 
stadium, 26 October '29. Three days later Harrv- lost his entire fortune when the 
stock market crashed. Plans for the remaining seven sections of the stadium have 
been suspended indefinitely 

John Thomas Lupton 
John and his wife Bess break ground for Lupton Hall, 30 June '20. Lupton Hall \ 
built in three stages. The first part, including the bell tower, was erected as a men 
ri;d to John's mother The middle portion was dedicated to his son Carter, and 
third section, including the auditorium, honored Bess. Beginning with his pledgt 
$10,000 on 1 November '14, John gave a total of $1,018,000 to Oglethorpe bef( 
his death in 'H.

Phoebe Apperson Hearst 
Phoebe's only son William Randolph, sitting at her left, made the 
largest single donation to the campaign to found Oglethoi-pe. 
After his $5000 gift in '13, the newspaper pubhsher supported 
Oglethorpe for the rest of his Me. In '29 he agreed to purchase 
400 acres surrounding Silver Lake for the university as a memo- 
rial to his mother. The lake was renamed Lake Phoebe in her 
honor, but the name never stuck. After a $50,000 grant from the 
Hearst Foundation in '46, Oglethoi-pe named its oldest building 
Phoebe Hearst Memorial Hall in '-i8.

Thornwell Jacobs 

In his autobjograph} Thornwell wrote: 
"The architecture of an in.stitution of 
learning should be a constant vjurce of 
dehght and inspiration to its students, 
teaching quietly but surely the highest 
ideals of life. \f)t less important are the 
personal surroundings of the student's 
room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped 
apartments have exacth the same influ- 
ence on the soul of a boy thai cheap, 
ugly and ill-equipped human compan- 
ions have. In brief, the college educa- 
tion that does not teach a lo\ e of beauty 
and order and what is popularly called 
decency is essentially and dangerously 

Upper quad planners deemed it appropriate to 

name one of the upper quad dorms after him. 

Thornwell is pictured on 6-1-5. 

Emma Markham Lown 
.Adjusted for inflation the S2"5.000 Emma be- 
queathed to Oglethorpe in '23 translates roughly to 
the value of a 16 inch by 24 inch honoraiy plaque 
hung in the foyer of Weltners building. 

Steve Schmidt ('40) 

In spring '95 the Stephen J. Schmidt Sports and 
Recreation Center opened its doors. The addition 
to Dorough Field House was made possible by Ste\ e's 
generous lead gift. Nine years earher Steve and his 
wife Jeanne ('42) were honored with the naming 
of the women's dorm in the upper quad. Formerly 
Oglethoipe Hall, perhaps the building was origi- 
nally named for Steve, who was known as Mr. 
Oglethorpe before the upper quad was a gUnt in a 
developer's e\e. (Steve and Jeanne are picmred on 
pages 12, ^Oand~I.

.\fter Tliomw ell Jacobs was deposed, Philip ;Lssunied the presidency of the university in '44. He later 
reflected on his decision to accept leadership of the school saying, "Oglethorpe ... was an empt\ shell. I 
would he free to rebuild it as I chose. " Philip tleveloped the program of study which would become the 
core curriculum. First articulated in a pamphlet titled The Oglethorpe Book. " the integrated academic 
program would consist of "two complementary parts; one concerned with making a hfe, the other with 
making a hving."

upper quad, baby 

In celebration of the upper quad's 
30th birthday party March 26, 
Trustee's top tier residents brought 
their ritual of dairy debauchery out 
onto the quad. Past Milk Challenges 
were held in the not-so-friendly con- 
fines of Trustee's third floor — an 
uncomfortable place to visit, but at 
least you don't hve there. Accord- 
ing to Challenge rules a competitor 
must consume a gallon of milk (at 
least 2% fat) within an hour, and 
refrain from reflux for a full hour 
after the last drop is swallowed. Of 
the lengthy list of past challengers 
Chris Geronimos came the closest 
to achieving lactic immortahty in 
fall '97, when he became the first 
to get the gaUon down, though it 
found its whey back up shortly af- 
ter Though no longer a student Chris 
received special invitation to take 
another pull off the cool wliite jug. 
While other competitors seemed in 
a hurry to hurl, Chris took a seat 
and sipped steady under the blos- 
soming cherry tree. After 47 stoic 
minutes, cahn Chris rose from his 
seat for his final gulp. In one fluid 
motion he tossed his empty plastic 
cup and ht a triumphant cigarette. 
Biology professor Dan Schadler 
guessed that Chris might have used 

Lactaid, or a similar lactose inhibi- 
tor. But sneaky Petrels past have 
proved pharmaceuticals ineffective, 
notably Anthony Kendall, whose '97 
attempt is most memorable for the 
amount of milk which splashed out 
of the trashcan after Anthony's body 
violently rejected it. (Of course the 
force of Anthony's expulsion may 
have had something to do with the 
12-ounce beer ftinnel he used to con- 
sume the milk.) Andy Milford tliinks 
Chris' Greek ancestry may have 
aided him. Not to diminish the im- 
portance of a rich dairy heritage, 
but the average molecule of goat's 
milk — the Greek cream of choice 
for centuries — pales in compari- 
son to the much larger and more 
formidable cow's milk molecule. 
Don't tell the kiddies, but Chris at- 
tributed his success to the number 
of cigarettes he smoked while hold- 
ing his mOk. After his first post-chug 
drag Chris burned four cigarettes 
while waiting for his 60-minute 
vomit moratorium to expire. 

From his first sip to his last puff 
Chris' intestinal fortitude embodied 
the indomitable spirit of Georgia's 
founder Nescit Spit-ere — 
He does not know how to throw up.

Crowd-pleaser Rob "Awesome" Rawson 
renews the slew of moo juice spew. After 
a disappointing early exit from the '9" Milk 
Challenge Rob vowed to pace himself in 
'98. But only 22 minutes after his first sip 
Rob had the "milk shakes" — a condition 
of involuntan- quivering induced by rapid 
dairy consumption — a sure sign of immi- 
nent pukage. Ten minutes later Rob had 
evacuated all cream from his innards and 
was ready to face the press. "Last year I 
thought it could be done. This \ear I feel 
better only because I know it's not humanly 
possible " Rob told The Stormy Petrels 
Catherine Borck. A httle over an hour after 
Rob's declaration, Chris Geronimos made

Mandy McDow showed great 
range in tlie spring. Pictured 
here as the icy arm of the govern- 
ment in "Tvvo Rooms," she stretched 
— hterally ;uid figuratively — to play 
the bright and bouncy Chrissy in 
"The Search for Signs of Intelhgent 
Life in the llniverse." 

Sarali Phillips plays a version of 
herself in Jane Wagner's "The 
Search for Signs of InteUigent Life 
in the Universe." Rather than write 
a paper, Sarah chose to produce 
and direct a play as the cuknina- 
tion of her work in Oglethorpe's 
honors program. 

As Casey Dryden had already 
been c;ist as a congenial vibra- 
tor saleswoman, Jeremy Jeffra 
seized the chance to interrupt 
Casey's string of fathers and fogeys. 
Jeremy and Katie Coakley play Addie 
Lerner's grandparents in "The 
Search for Signs of Intelligent Life 
in the Universe."

The staff of The Stomy Petrel com- 
pleted its final issue in spring '97 
ready to begin again in the fall un- 
der Editor in Chief Ryan Brown. 
During his year as editor Ryan ac- 
celerated the paper's steady improve- 
ment initiated by previous editors 
Ryan Queen and Kelly Holland. But 
instead of retm-ning to the helm of 

iting, business management and 
breadth of reporting were unprec- 
edented in recent Pefre/ history. Un- 
hke past years, the paper maintained 
its biweekly pubhshing schedule for 
the entire year, printing 13 timely 
issues. Along with consistent cover- 
age of campus happenings and an- 
nouncements, the paper took pohcy-

let Ryan's absence halt the paper's

Oglethorpe golf team earned by 
winning conference. At the confer- 
ence tournament the Petrels fin- 
ished 2 1 shots ahead of second 
place Rhodes. Senior Tolliver Wil- 
liams finished Oglethorpe's finest 
athletic career of the decade by 
winning his second conference 
tournament. (A rainout in 
Georgetown, TX his junior year 
prevented him from winning 
three.) The team earned a bid to 
the NCAA national tournament at

A new beginning 

The commencement ceremony 
Saturday, May 9, was a time to 
look forward and a time to re- 
member For many it meant the 
conclusion of hard work, of 
diligendy striving to excel. The 
achievements of the Class of '98 
will not be soon forgotten. Nor 
will the friendships forged dur- 
ing college days soon fade. 
Could four years really pass so 
quickly? It seems hke just yes- 
terday that loving parents said 
good-bye to the children they 
had nurtured to adulthood. 
Those confused freshman en- 
countered new roonmiates, new 
freedom and new academic 
challenges. And in the midst of 
impossible midterms, all-night 
cram sessions, 8:30 classes and 
overwhehning reading assign- 
ments, these young students be- 
gan the path to true scholar- 

sliip. While it wasn't easy the 
rewards were great. 

At the most difficult times the 
Class of '98 came together hke 
a family Whether it was peer 
tutoring, reassuring words or 
hstening ears, the Class became 
an inclusive support group. 
And the support did not end 
with academics. Relationsliips, 
family problems and financial 
struggles were all remedied by 
caring classmates. 

As the Class of '98 rose to sing 
the ahna mater one final time, 
they stood as a group. Each in- 
dividual member contributed m 
her own way to make the occa- 
sion mean so much. The same 
parents who reluctantly left 
their darlings now swelled with 
pride as they shared in the 
achievement of their sons and 

Foveraor Zell Miller wore cowboy boots.

Award for her perfect cumulative 
grade point average. Valerie 
Holshouser returned to the stage 
to accept the James Edward 
Oglethorpe Award from Malcolm 
.Emerson. In addition to the a\vards 
announced at the beginning of 
commencement. \'alerie's gradua- 
tion garb had enough badges of 
merit to make any girl scout en\i- 
ous. The FuUbright Scholar 
accesorized with the help of the

Thoughts on the IRS from Mr. Mobbs 

Ihcrc have liecn compLwui ul fHj«iti|c jbuici of (wwci in the IILS syitcin. During my cuKriencc with the IRS olllccts. I have seen sen 
little abuse. Over all. the Ik's has Invn vcn.- reasonable and very coopeiative sviih me regarding tax mailers and taxpayer concctns. I have had 
a lot of success in negoliaung ssith the IKS (9S''o in favor of taxpayers). In sonic cases the IRS may have to use then authority to ensure thai 
all taxes arc paid properly. 1 he IRs ciicouiagcs taxpaseis to keep good records and ihcy also plovide a toll free number to call for (fee 
sen ices ■800-829- 10-101. In 1981 the declaiaiion of taxpayer tights was established to further help individuals know their rights and 
roponsibilities. Vou may obtain a copv by calling the toll free number and requesting publication »1 catalog #64731 w or write to: IRS 
Atlanta. (lA 39901. I hey will be glad to assist you 

Hard work, long hours nnd dedication all contribute to success. 

A busmevi owner must W willing to keep going despite all obstacles. 'i"hit means having the strength and personal cornmiimeni to solve 

eNxrv problem encountered along the way. Personal commitment is the greatest factor to lucccw. Having a vision and the ability to 

commuiutate that to your associates leads to a successful business. Business owners build companies based on a strong vision of what they 

want to accomplish and a dedication to making that vision a reality. The reward of working hard, staying long houts, and taking risks can 

be a succesitui business endeavor 

AJso. a successful buiincsifvrson ihaics success and knowledge with others He will assist others to achie%e their goals in life. Helping 

othco to stay in business will help you stay in business. Arioihet means of helping others is through financing the education ol employees 

Be wtllmg to share yout knowledge as well as sour income. In the past, Mobbs Business Services has helped 

finance education lot some employees 

A successful busmesii,><rion will djily tctntnd himsclt that the single most important factor in his life and business 

IS. what I refer to as. "the bottom line." 1 he bottom line" is following God and responding to his direction. God 

created man in his ov^n image and He is the key reason for anyone's success. If God is for us then who can be 

against us? Abraham u as a successful businesiman who went out with nothing but faiih. He was also a missionary 

and a servant of God He moved about from place to place Kfving (io<l and his community. God does not call us 

to be successful, He Joes call us to be faithful At ptesent, Mobbs Buiincis 5C Insurance Services help sponsors

We bid fond farewell to Robin LeBlanc, whose patient sponsorship has helped turn this book around. The 
history section could not have been completed without the help of Paul Hudson, George Stewart, the 
Schmidts, the MacConnells and Dave Thomas. The PR and advancement offices were generous. Thanks to 
Doug McFarland for being a good sport. Thanks to Jeanee Ledoux ff)r layout and more important support. 
Thanks to ;dl who helped outfit the graphics work station. Mar\ Kay Kimmit made all the good parts 
better. The Yaiiuicniw \\ou\d like to thank everyone else who deserves to be thanked. Special thanks go to 
Nick, Dianne and Matt Vance whose lovely Roswell estate served as a second home to the Yamacraw.

An Oglecentric view of 
Phoebe Apperson Hearst would re- 
duce her to the belated namesake 
of the schools original building. She 
lived in the interim between 
Oglethorpes and was only posthu- 
mously connected with the univer- 
sit\'. Ten years after her death, when 
Thornwell Jacobs pitched the pur- 
chase of Silver Lake to Will- 
iam Randolph Hearst, he appealed 
to the memory of his deceased 
mother Phoebe. If her only son's 
attempt to memoriahze her had suc- 
ceeded, her name would have never 
foimd its way to the academic quad. 
But Luke Phoebe never held the 
same ring as Silver Lake for north 
Atlanta residents. And even if the 
name had stuck to the Brookhaven 
body of water, the financially 
strapped institution could not have 
afforded to maintain the lake as part 
of its campus. But before 
Oglethoi*pe did divest itself of — 
ahem — Lake Phoebe, the school 
took $50,000 of encouragement 
from the Hearst Foundation into 
account and named the its generi- 
cally-known administration build- 
ing Phoebe Hearst Memorial Hall 
in December '48. 

However indirect the university's 
connection to her may seem, the 
Yamacraw does not wish to dimin- 
ish Oglethorpe's bond to Phoebe. 
Instead, we would hke to recognize 
Phoebe's value to the university in 
broadt "ontext. 

Ever sh her stint as a pubhc 
school teac. ni; .r to marrying 
George Hearst -^•' 2 Phnebe de- 
voted much of her . rsoiirces 

to the improvement of educatio 
opportunities for young America 
She estabhshed kindergartens 2 
libraries from San Francisco 
Washington, D.C., including 
mining communities which gr 
around her husband's properties 
Utah, South Dakota and Montai 
She estabhshed training schools ; 
teachers. Along with Ahce McLeU 
Birney she founded the Parei 
Teacher Association of America a 
served as its first vice preside 
While she continued to support c 
educational kindergartens, she tO' 
a special interest in founding t 
National Cathedral School for gir 
As she grew older Phoebe tool- 
greater interest in higher educatic 
She concentrated her efforts on ti 
development of the University 
Cahfornia at Berkeley, where si 
served as regent in 1897 and 
1914. In keeping with her earU 
commitments to women's educ 
tion, she devoted special attentic 
to the interests of Berkeley's fema 
students. She donated a Hearst Hi 
in 1901 and presented the Hear 
Memorial Mining Building to tl 
growing school in I9O8. The fello\ 
ships, lectureships and scholarshii 
she funded are innumerable. 

While observance of the 50th am 
versary of Oglethorpe's Hearst Ei 
should commemorate the genero, 
ity of William Randolph Hearst an 
the Hearst Foundation, the occasio 
presents a special opportunity t 
celebrate the life's work of Phoeb 
Apperson Hearst.
