Text from Pages 1 - 84 of the 1955 volume:

75 th Anniversary Year EMERSON COLLEGE Founded 1880 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 1 Dedication In this age of scientific reasoning which leads some of us to accept the opinions of others without question, we gratefully discover someone who will listen to our personal theories and answer, " You might try it. " We are greatful to the person who not only encourages us to try our theory but who developes a situation in which the theory can be given practical application. During our four years at Emerson, several changes have been made in the curriculum, several departments have been expanded, new equipment added, courses changed to furnish more practical experience. At first, only a few of us were aware of the effects of one major change; only a few of us realized the responsibilities taken by one faculty member. Little time passed, however, before we all were aware of a strong feeling of pride growing within us, a feeling of great admiration for the woman who had the courage to accept the responsibility for the administration and training of students in a highly specialized field. We have watched this woman in the classroom, sharing knowledge gained through years of practical experience; we have watched her in individual consultation with each student under her guidance — not once or twice but as often as the student asked for advice. We have watched her in convocation, demonstrating the application of techniques and results of the training she has given. We have come to realize that here is the person who would say, " Try it " to our untried ideas, give us the opportunity to try and then guide our efforts toward effective application of knowledge, technique, skill. We, the Class of Nineteen fifty-five, join together in dedication of our yearbook to the woman who has given so much of herself to her Alma Mater and to us as teacher, counselor and director of the Samuel D. Robbins Speech and Hearing Clinic, MISS CATHERINE C. PERRY 9 MISS CATHERINE C. PERRY 3 DR. S. JUSTUS McKINLEY Dr. S. Justus McKinley, since his inauguration as President of Emerson College in 1952, has worked diligently to improve and develop the varied departments of learning at our Beacon Street College. During the short time that Dr. McKinley has served as President, Emerson has progressed in many ways. The College now boasts of a superior Liberal Arts Department, the Samuel D. Robbins Speech and Hearing Clinic, a stronger WERS, and modern television facilities. Without the aid of President McKinley none of these advances would have taken place. Students and faculty alike realize that Emerson has just begun to expand. Certainly we all see a brighter future in store for our College, and with President McKinley leading the way, Emerson College will go on to win for itself the honors it so justly deserves. To The Class of 1955 . . . It is a great privilege to be able to speak in the name of the some 4000 members of the Emerson family in congratulating the Class of 1955 on its graduation and each individual member of the Class on his well-earned degree. The Emerson family joins me in proudly welcoming you to the ranks of our alumni. We feel that you are worthy of alumni privileges and are confident that we will all gain new strength from the way in which you will fulfill your new responsibilities. As the years go by, your membership in the Emerson family will be an increasing source of satisfaction. In our dynamic and fluid society, the college is more and more the one place where the individual can put down permanent roots. Here is the group to which he will belong wherever he may be and in which he will always be recognized and important. Here is the group in which he can always find shared experience and values, and in which he can meet his need of identifying himself wfith an idea and a cause of great and enduring worth. Your work in your permanent class organization, your class reunions, your representation in the Alumni Council, your participation in the election of Trustees in an alumni controlled college — all these will give you the means of passing on to others, in accordance with our American tradition, the help which you received with your own education. Your opportunity to work for the growth and strengthening of your college means an immediate opportunity to work for something of national importance. It is becoming increasingly apparent that our American society is struggling with a problem of communication that can best be met by an expansion of the Emerson idea of education. For many of you, your graduation will mean the end of formal education in classrooms, but you must always remember that in our changing society no man or woman ' s education can ever be finished. No matter how long you may live, none of you will ever be able to say that you know all that you need to know, or are completely prepared to take advantage of every available opportunity for fuller and more effective living. The unique combination of educational experiences which you are now completing has brought you an unusual capacity to use whatever abilities you may have. It has also increased your capacity to learn, and it is your responsibility to make such use of this that, step by step, you may grow towards your full potential. The men and women who earn Emerson degrees today find that much is expected of them. Other college graduates are not expected to show professional competence or demonstrate unusual ability every time they speak. Emerson graduates also incur heavy social responsibilities. Because of their skill in the speech arts they are usually found in some position of group leadership with responsibility for shaping the attitudes and ideas of others. Because of the urgency of the problem of communciation in our con- temporary civilization their competence in the arts of oral communication must be applied to such tasks as interpreting the great and enduring values of our cultural tradition in terms of contemporary situations and in enabling highly specialized workers in various complimentary fields to achieve effective cooperation. Above all, their skill and knowledge must be applied to the development of ways of so dealing with the great volume of information poured out by such mass media as newspapers, radio, and television that information will become actual communication with the individual citizen. Only when information brings meaning and understanding can it aid the individual in carrying out his responsibilities under our American system of democratic self-government. Self government means that each of us is constantly called upon to make choices among conflicting policies urged upon us at all levels of government. The survival of our system of political democracy depends upon the ability of the individual citizen to understand the choices with which he is confronted. The trend is for the work of our government to grow ever more difficult and complex. Without better communication, understanding must fail and with it political democracy and the best hope of man- kind today. We are increasingly becoming aware that failure as a citizen far outweighs any short run individual or professional success. May the Class of 1955 always remember that for you, with your urgently needed knowledge and abilities, this is especially true and will present a constant challenge throughout your life. I am confident that each of you can and will meet the challenge of your opportunities and your responsibilities. I am proud of you now and expect to be even prouder when you all come back for your fifth reunion in I960. I have greatly enjoyed working with you on campus and am looking forward to working with you as friends and alumni in the years ahead. With all good wishes, S. Justus McKinley 5 COUNSELORS Mrs. Ruth Southwick Maxfield has served as counselor of women since the position was created some three years ago. The door of her office is always open to young ladies who wish to seek advice pertaining to personal or academic problems. Because of her warm interest in students, and the friendship she extends to all, Mrs. Maxfield has gained the respect of the entire student body. The graduating class of 1955 would like to extend its heart-felt thanks to Mrs. Maxfield for her wise, kindly, guidance as advisor for the Senior Class. RUTH SOUTHWICK MAXFIELD Richard Mervyn Frye, instructor in Physical Science, serves as counselor for m en at Emerson College. Sincerity, friendliness, and understanding enables Mr. Frye to better cope with the problems of the college student. His willingness to pause, even when pressed for time, and chat with students has won the admira- tion of all Emersonians. Mr. Frye comes to Emerson from Bowdoin where he received his B.A. degree. We are pleased, and fortunate, to welcome Mr. Frye into the Emerson family. RICHARD MERVYN FRYE 6 CLAIRE L. BROWN President DANIEL R. GILLETTE Vice-President ROBERT H.

The pattern we see through the varied experiences of four years is made up of faces and events, expensive textbooks and disorderly notebooks, the Eisenhower inauguration and the McKinley inauguration, Formosa and a Drama Festival, an 18,000 watt F.M. station, a Junior Prom and a Hand Me Down days. We turn the cylinder of our kaleidiscope and we catch a pattern called — Beginning. Beanies, Hell Week, and the first pride of belonging in three brownstone buildings, closer warmer than any factory of a university. Here’s the initial fraternity party where we take our shoes off, our first Interclass Dance where we prided ourselves on being social equals with the upperclassmen. We shudder over Sam McGee. We know all there is to know about the Magna Charta and Machiavelli. We see our first college Christmas, the Carol Sing, the Orphan’s Party. We walk into our second semester finals hating to see summer. Then we shook the kaleidiscope, meeting a design where we settled into the academic. We met psychology — and felt we could solve any emotional or mental problem existing. We found we couldn’t slip past " Beowulf,” sentimentalism and " Clarissa.” We looked at ourselves thinking, " We’re in, now! " Perhaps the world could be our oyster after all. Now we’re used to things, we’re sophisticated, our philosophizing gets loud in the caf, intense in the dorms at late hours. We look again. We’re Juniors now, aggressive, curious. We read Hamlet and develop acute melancholia. We explore philosophy and psych and education courses, casting off prejudices, pursuing something we vaguely call " truth. " We meet a new college President and feel the school growing as we grow. We have our own Junior Prom, our May Day, a surge of progress in the Broadcasting Department. We’re closely knit now, a class with its own personality. The Emerson emphasis on the individual begins to show its mark. We express our ideas better. We assert ourselves, we keep a more critical eye on our majors and minors, thinking about that future little more than a year away. With the last return in September, we feel a little unsteady over the last tussle with registration, the last Christmas, the fittings for cap and gown. We face a rush, our Sneak Day, culminating with the march down an aisle of the Old South Church. Is this happening to us? Are we ready? We face a small fear over the indefiniteness of the future, the wonder of all we’ve learned beside, the wonder of all we neglected to learn. We fall back on the cultivation of the " self, " our intimate classes, our intimate Emerson philosophy demanded. Perhaps we re a little blind to what lies beyond the pattern of four years of college, but we are eager, we want to apply our talents, or our hopes of talents. We move to some new, obscure design, nothing we can turn in our hands and study, yet. We look out with appreciation of background, to some niche ready for our contributions. When we turn this toy, this picture from a kaleidescope of experience, turn it for the last time, we catch only a blur of impressions, part of us each, part of our unity. We see a theatre after rehearsal, the aura that hangs over a deserted stage . . . the caf on a rainy morning -with coffee, tasting funny from a paper cup ... a quick dash to the esplanade between classes in April . . . smoke ... a cigarette stub on the floor ... a paper program of Commencement excercises fluttering in the empty courtyard . . . the theatre door banging in the wind. Integral to each of us, a design against which we took ourselves, a putty in our own hands, the hands of a faculty and grew our own bean stalks to ascend, knowing we bred it from a common root. . . . 31 CLASS WILL We, the members of the Senior Class of Emerson College, in the city of Boston, County of Suffolk, and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, do ordain and establish this to be our last will and testament. Having successfully completed our Senior year with all library fines, and year books paid for, plus of course, our stationery and jewelry exhibitions, we becjueath, not money, but the following items to the undergraduates of Emerson College: — Marion Green very regretfully leaves behind her classes with Mr. Siple — enough said. Jake Flannery leaves George Gobel. Claire Brown leaves the corner outside the cafeteria to next year’s struggling Senior class President. Fran Weiss leaves her poise and sophistication to Vivian Yasgour. Reva Schapira leaves ' you know what " to Joan Cappel. Jane McLeod leaves her quiet charm to Jim Walker. Barbara Swartz leaves her ' ' swing " to Theresa Romano. Barry Follett leaves — at last. Will Simmons leaves — still making motions. Ken Crannell leaves his " good morning” kisses to all the Junior girls. Evie Gaber leaves her scholastic ability to the most deserving Junior. Ruth Sax leaves with questions still unanswered. Edna Ward leaves the Registrar. Dale Grand wills his supply of jokes to Russ Blood. Jean Silvano leaves the posters to Charlie, the janitor. Sandra Shipman leaves her talent to Jo Vallier, if she needs it. Margie Eilenberg leaves her neat appearance to all sloppy undergrads. Bill Schimmel leaves a car for transportation of the girls to and from the dorm. Carlene Rogers wills her ability as a conscientious worker to anyone who can equal her achievements. Manny Manolios leaves Jean — all alone — after two whole years. Joan Stanios wills her cheerful " good mornings’’ and bright, happy personality to those Monday Mornings. Jane Arrington leaves her keen zest for life to Phil Freedman — it may help him to get through P.O.E. Dot Bruson wills her executive ability on WERS to Lennie Seffer. Dave Jacobs leaves smiling. Bob Corey leaves his paint and brushes to next year’s Scribe Editor, just to give Debate a little competition. Ed Hayes gladly leaves behind his ever present pessimism to anyone who wants it. Doany Pazakis wills her wonderful smile and personality to Mimi Dalapas so that the Grecian Quality may be carried on even stronger. Carol O’Neil wills her keen knack for writing " ONE ACTERS " to Dick Allen so that Mr. Cohn’s workshop will always be one of the best. Connie Watts leaves her beautiful electric coffee pot to Dottie Leboff for help in getting through the " night before.” Dick O ' Connor leaves his afternoon strolls with Pattie to other " young at heart” couples. Dan Gillette wills his big, beautiful, brown eyes to Marilyn Rosoff — so she can stay awake in class. Bob Moris wills his tapping feet to Joan Falk — to get her to class on time. Joe Buerry leaves his co-editorship of the Yearbook to any Junior foolish enough to accept it. Jim McDonald wills his ever lovin’ briefcase to Bernie McCabe, so that he can keep his debate speeches in order. Dottie Peterson wills her Beacon Hill apartment to Betty Martin — the parties must go on. Mo Dunn leaves her taste for the exotic to Nan Whelpley. Warren Matteson leaves his stylish taste in clothes to Peter Donner. Tim Kelley leaves behind to Don Perkins his Production of High School Play Prompt Book, in case Don has some use for it. Patte Copeland leaves behind her platform art podium to Kay Wishengrad. Ron Lane wills his flair for the artistique to Alex Wolfson. Jon Fitch leaves all his cleft palate cases to Natalie Marks. Pat Murphy wills her M.I.T. address book to Joy Bartlett. Drawn, signed, and delivered this first day of February in the year of our Lord one thousand, nine hundred and fifty-five within the confines of Emerson College in Boston, Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 32 PROPHECY This is the end of a story, but, no, don’t turn to the last page for the beginning, because you won ' t find it there. The beginning began a long, long time ago, in 1955 to be exact, when 42 bright students emerged from the " halls of ivy” at Emerson College, armed with determined smiles, bright futures in mind, and all A ' s, which of course entitled them all to the honor of Validictorian. Now to the end of that story, which really means the beginning, not the end. In other words, now to Heaven. Well, not Heaven exactly, either, but just outside the gates, the Pearly Gates if you want to get Geographic about it, because you see there’s a little matter of entrance requirements, before these same 42 Emerson students, who 75 years ago, emerged from the " halls of ivy,” etc., can get inside. Look around you. That man standing by the gate, that’s Saint Peter, and that little angel, who is standing with all those old people (but they really don’t look their age, do they?) That ' s because they all, took Jack Stein’s course in Make-up, way back in the ’50’s (1950 ' s that is). This is eternity and it’s so hard to remember that earth needs dates to make it go ’round.) This is such a mixed up sentence, but I’m so excited, because St. Peter is just pulling in his diaphragm to speak. " Whoa!” he cries in a deep voice, and all 42 people and the little angel stop. " Who goes there?” " We hope to sir.” It was the Littlest Angel, and he wiped his brow with a piece of angel’s hair as he spoke. " And who are you?” asked St. Peter. He looked up almost angry that such a little angel should speak to him. " I’m Prudence Orvil Evergreen, and they call me P.O.E. for short, and I know that sounds corny, but it’s true, absolutely true. I’m the Emerson College Class of 1955’s guardian angel, and I’m awfully tired. It’s been quite a trip. Actors! I’ll never take another assignment like this again. Now they expect me to get them into Heaven.” " What qualifications do these people have that entitles them to the Kingdom of Heaven?” The little angel took a long scroll from inside his angelic vest, and gave Peter the list of qualifications. Jane Arrington, fabulous designer of Arrington Space Suits, the suit that takes you out of this world, chose another Emersonian, Francine Weiss as her top model. Franci ne was the first girl to reach Venus. Claire Brown worked for the U. N. as chairman of the finance committee for the Prevention of Cruelty to the Tanganyika-Snackelsmorker. Dr. Dot Bruson was a scientist at M.I.T. And she was the inventor of the now famous " Puff Bomb.” Joe Buerry was the head announcer at T.W.R. (Trans-World-Radio.) Patte Copeland proved to the world that marriage and career can mix. She won last years coverted Academy Award for her shocking performance in Morning Becomes Electric. There to watch her receive this great honor, were her famous director-husband, Ronald Lane, and the ten little Alleys. Bob Corey was editor of the New York Lines the newspaper whose slogan is " All the news is print to fit.” Ken Crannell, because of his most excellent training at Emerson College, went on to become a leading Boston Psychiatrist. Marge Eilenberg was president of Ship ' N Shore. Jake Flannery and Ed. Hayes were two famous writers who collaborated on their greatest work, Seven Brides for Every Brother, the novel which has revolutionized the marriage industry. Evie Gaber was the top designor of " Smartstyle Originals,” whose motto; " Smartstyles for smart style shorties,” is on the lips of every girl 3 feet and under. Will Simmons, known and loved by millions for his weekly program " Will and His Cracker Barrel Conversations,” was in close contact with Dan Gillette, Vice-President to the Vice-President in charge of programing at N.B.C. (National Biscuit Co.) Dale Grand brought laughter to millions of homes, as half of that beloved comedy team of " Grand and Greater.” Marion Green was the first woman president of the United States. Tim Kelley, writer, director and actor in his famous trilogy, Crullers, Coffee, and Tears the show which has had the longest season of any other play in history, celebrating its 69th season at the Casino in Scolley Square. Bob Moris and Lora DiMeo were managers of the " Twinkle Toes Terminal for Tottering Tots Dancing School.” Pat Murphy was President of the Canadian Collective Banking Co. of Boston. Carol O’Neil won the Nobel Prize for Literature for her unforgetable My Life and Times with Briar Rabbit. Carlene Rogers was hostess at the " 77” Club, fabulous Beacon Hill night spot. Bill Schimmel was a fire engine driver. Sandra Shipman, star of stage, screen and radio, just completed her shocking autobiography The War Between Salt and the Five Little Peppers. 33 Jean Silvano gave her formula for a smile, and now owns a controlling interest in the Colgate Tooth Paste Co. Barbara Swartz was a real estate agent for Alluring Apartments for Aged Actresses. Edna Ward, owned " Dr. Ward’s Home for Wayward Cockerspaniels.” Reva Schapira, after Billy Gilbert’s death, became known as " The Sneeze.” Barry Follett, known as one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of his day, was particularly out- standing in his brilliant portrayal of Falstaff. Manny Manolios became known because it was he who posed for the famous sculptured bust " The Modern Greek Adonis,” which was placed in the Museum of Fine Arts. Warren Matteson, now Sir Warren Matteson, gained quite a reputation in high society, quickly winning for himself the title of " Playboy of the Western World.” Jane McLeod, who was well known for her rules of etiquette, as was her predecessor Emily Post, shocked the world with her startling announcement that it is, " Perfectly allright for men to get rid of tioublesome mother-in-laws in any way they saw fit.” Dick O ' Connor was for 55 years President of the Brief Case Carriers Association. Jon Fitch, clever M.C. at the Old Howard, took advantage of his Emerson education by giving lessons in " Public Peeking.” Dione Pazakis became instrumental in the musical revolution of the last decade. She showed that she had both genius and originality by modernizing the old operas. Her first production was a revision of Carmen, which she called The Alarmin’ Carmen. Ruth Sax was the first good will ambassador sent by the U. S. to the planet Mars. A few minutes after her arrival, the people of that planet showered earth with candy bars of the same name. Thousands of children will remain forever indebted to Ruth. Jim McDonald, better known to his friends as " The Great Stone Face,” won public acclaim when he succeeded the late George Gobel. Dave Jacobs introduced something new in the entertainment field, when he put on the market a new Telecatcher machine. The machine quickly outmoded the old television set, because it caught channels as far away as Jupiter and Venus. The machine was so advanced that it literally brought the actors right into the living-room. However, the set was soon abandoned; too many viewers were cut down by flying saucers.” As Peter dropped the scroll, the P.O.E. gave a sigh of relief, and said, " Well, that’s it, Saint Peter. As you can see, I’ve had a busy time of it. I ' m grateful that my task is finished.” " Yes,” answered Saint Peter, solemnly. " Well, what can you do for me? Can you get them in? Can you get all of them in?” Saint Peter did not answer. He was deep in thought. The group of 42 grew uneasy as they waited for Peter to comply with P.O.E.’s request. The impatient little angel broke the silence first; " Well, can you?” Saint Peter nodded his head slowly, thinking as he did so, " I guess it will be all right with Him.” The good Saint returned his gaze to the angel. " You may take your earthlings inside, Littlest Angel, but only on the condition that they keep the Heavenly Cafeteria clean!” There were a few grunts of indignation from the Emersonians, but the P.O.E. quickly spoke up before the grunts took on the form of loud arguments. " Oh, they will, Saint Peter, they will! " The Littlest Angel glanced in the direction of his group, " They’d better,” he muttered under his breath. " So be it, then,” and as Saint Peter raised his arm, the gates began to open slowly, noiselessly — in a Heavenly kind of way. The forty-two people filed through the gates, and as the last Emersonian entered, a wandering cloud creeped by, engulfing them, blotting them from sight. The Emerson College Class of 1955 had at long last arrived at the final period in the Evolution. 34 SARAH ZIMMERMAN Secretary to President V. RAE DAVIS HARRY N. NICKERSON Admissions Office CLARA F.

This was followed by the sale of second-hand edition pocket books. The highlight of the school year, however, concerned the very pop- ular Junior Prom. This was held at the Hotel Bradford. The event included the coronation of t he Junior Prom Queen, Lora DiMeo, and her court. JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS — N. Whelpley, President; L. Borzumato. Vice-President ; P. Wehkoja; Treasurer; J.

Along with registration, we were treated to a week of orientation by Student Government. That week consisted of many experiences we will never forget. Later we were herded into the theatre on September 22, Beanie Day. We received a warm welcome from Dr. McKinley, and a cold oration from the " Most High and Honorable” sophomore class President, Bob Cathcart. The following seven days included a hazing that ended with a most striking ritual, at which time we all became members of the Emerson family. mmf « ft ■ Tl ir iw • W us L JL i , Tn r tP Vm V 15a L i»peecf) Speech is not only our basic language but an im- portant educational tool.

With its increased power, WERS was able to reach more homes with greater effectiveness. By so doing, the Emerson FM station has earned for itself a commendable reputation with listeners both in the Boston region, and out of state districts, too. WECB is the Radio Depart- ment’s " proving ground” for in- coming students who have no experience in actual radio perform- ance. The closed-circuit station of- fers to the student the training he needs. This year, WECB had as its director Ron Hall, who worked diligently at rounding out the sta- tion’s programming. When WECB went on the air during the second semester, freshmen and sophomores flooded the studios for auditions. WECB has asserted itself as a highly important function of the Emerson organization. It has en- gendered in its members the ability to meet the hard work character- istic of the radio field. R. Hall, Program Director; F. Seiden, Chief Announcer ; M. Gloven, Chief Engineer; N. Carmel, Studio Manager ; N. Hellegers, Women’s Director. 44 The Dr. Samuel Robbins Speech clinic has greatly aided therapy students. Only through the endless aid given by the Women’s Committee and other charitable organiza- tions is the clinic able to survive. Its director, Miss Perry, was pleased to announce, recently, that patients of the clinic have been quite happy in the treatment given by the student members of the staff. Congratulations are in order for Miss Perry and her staff. P e e c ft ft ft anb c a r t n S Brama The Drama Department has presented several excellent pro- ductions. Noteworthy among these productions have been, " Romeo and Juliet,’’ " Major Barbara,” " The Jest, " " Where Stars Walk,” " Fin- ian’s Rainbow,” " Playwright’s Workshop,” and " Helen.” The Department is planning to have several productions presented at Cape Cod during the Summer as part of its Summer Stock program.

Basil Kenny, C.S.P., the organization worked for, and attained, better unity from within, stronger acknowledgment from without, and many opportunities for future growth. The club’s activities were not limited to social affairs alone; on the contrary, the members attended the Living Rosary, and had the happy satisfaction of delivering a food basket to a needy family. c a C.

The Student Christian Association has been organized in order to give the Protestant students of Emerson College the opportunity to enlarge their religious horizons and to engage in Christian Service. Since the aim of S. C. A. is to broaden the religious knowledge of its members, and to continue to render itself as a useful organization to Emerson College, the Student Christian Association sponsored many of the weekly chapel services. J. Chase, President ; D. Perkins, Vice-President ; N. Crocker and J. Keen, Librarians. The Emerson choir participated in several official functions this year. Under the capable direction of Mrs. Jean Young, the new director, the choir performed at each and every chapel service. In addition to this, the singing group was prominent in the annual Christmas program given shortly before the holiday recess. Founder’s Day, Hand Me Down Day, and May Day found the choir ready, and willing, to give forth with vocal embellishments.
