Orientation lead- ers possed a great power. They ex- tended the first hand to new students. This year ' s Orientation was chaired by Danielle Georges, ' 86 and Monica Becker, ' 87. Along with the help of new Asst. Dean of Students, Gail DiSaba- tino, a successful welcoming week of events was planned. Included were such events as a day at Castle Hill, a boat cruise, caberet shows, work- shops, lunches on the Esplanade and commons. During the week of August 31 thru September 8, there were orien- tation leaders to answer questions and help move students into the dorms. In September, Emerson student leaders spent a weekend enhancing their leadership skills at the annual Sar- geant ' s Camp outing in Peterboro, N.H. Everybody benefitted from the workshops and leadership exercises conducted by Gail DiSabatino, assis- tant dean of students, Roger McPhail, coordinator of international affairs and Communication Studies professor, Su- san Locklin, Union coordinator and Ro- byn Leuthe, ' 87. This weekend was designed to edu- cate new and old leaders of Emerson ' s clubs and organizations.

SGA executive officers anticipated a turn- out of about 250 people, but were pleasently surprised to find a roaring crowd of approximately 600 students gathered in front of 130 Beacon Street. The September 26 rally started with a silent, one-mile walk from Fensgate. The marchers carried signs and ban- ners, as well as donning black arm bands as a symbol of mourning the lack of communication between the administration and students. They joined the other 350 in front of the Mass Comm building, and the rally began. The crowd responded boisterously to words from SGA President Robert Stafford, Craig Vachon, treasurer, and ' Senators Cedric Harmon and es- pecially Marc Douthit who said, " We will speak as a unified student body - and we will be heard. " The protest was supplemented by a postcard drive which was presented to the school ' s Board of Trustees, ex- pressing the students ' concerns on the institution ' s relocation from Boston ' s Back Bay. There was also a vote polling stu- dents ' feelings with 617 voting against the move, while only 33 were for it. All in all it was a very productive, eventful and successful show of stu- dent unity. 20 Rally % VI AV IS HnKTjjjj feicv r v . S ci ’ jfc d M A..

Despite the masking tape craze, broken glass littered streets from the North End to Brookline. Uprooted trees obstructed the paths of many vehi- cles, and smashed a lot of others. The wind measured over 100 m.p.h. and waves battered the shores and seaside homes, causing millions of dol- lars in damage statewide. But as all good students know, a phenomena of nature is a great rea- son for a party. On September 27, the last block of Beacon Street (between Mass Ave. and Charlesgate East) was a garden party for the BU dorm, MIT frats, the Crossroads crowd as well as Fensgaters and Charlesgaters. The unique weather conditions, the trashed environment and the day off attracted quite a large crowd of par- ty-goers. And as with any good party, it was over when the Boston Police and the National Guard showed up with the paddy wagons. Gloria 23 OK 1 . Rf tofare lou ?

UAPV? - A TASTE OF EMERSON COMEDY!! 24 No Biscuit Harambi Welcomes Students The annual Harambi (Welcome) din- ner, an event designed to welcome new students to Emerson, was held at Charlesgate ' s Beige Room. The ceremony ' s cultural roots date back to Africa, when new children were welcomed into a tribe, boys were welcomed into manhood and hunters were welcomed back from a hunt. Although the dinner is open too all new students, there is usually a low non-minority turn out. However, it is hoped that this will change in the years to come. In addtion to the dinner, the 57 peo- ple who attended this year ' s October 20 edition were treated to poetry readings, dancing and theatrical performances.

It ' s de- signed to heighten students ' awareness about their Union. Games, contests and displays get students involved with the goings on. Union Director Sue Locklin originated this festivity this year in an effort to spread a greater sense that the Union is indeed a place for the students. Union Day I was held on October 22 and Union Day II on March 18. With the recent additions of the College Store and the Un- kommon Bostonian, more and more Emersonians are discover- ing the various functions of the Union. In a recent Berkeley Beacon poll, 9 out of 10 Emersonians chose our union over unions that don ' t chew gum. Honestly! Monster Dash The Monster Dash is an annual short distance race to benefit the United Way. On October 27, entrants sponsored by friends and local businesses dressed up in funky Halloween costumes and com- peted not only for first place fin- ish, but for best costume(s) of the year, in the different categories. Many Emersonians ran in the 1985 race, but the closest we came to a victory was the first place finish by Bridget Stafford, mother of SGA President Robert Stafford. For the second year in a row, the First Mother turned in the best time for her age group. Last year ' s race was spon- sored by V-66. 26 Union Day Monster Dash 27 K For Emerson, New Move Is Old Hat BY JOHN NICHOLSON Emerson College ' s anticipated move to Lawrence before the turn of the century, 1989, won ' t be the first relocation in the institution ' s history as a similar plan was carried out by other school administrators just six years af- ter it was established. The school, which was designed to teach the essentials of public reading and speaking was originally called the Boston Conservatory of Elocution and Dramatic Art. It was founded by Charles Wesley Emerson in 1880. Emer- son, a man of some wealth, decided to institute a college based on the things in life he found to be important, such as the power of thought and " faith in the infinite possibilities of hu- man soul. " The college ' s first home was on Bea- con Hill, on the Pemberton Square area where the Suffolk County Court is now. The building was as simple as Emerson ' s founding ideology. It attracted dedi- cated faculty as well as students, all women at the time. Courses covered such topics as articulation, Bible and Hymm reading, gesture, drama and defects os speech. Classes were origi- nally taught by six teachers including Emerson himself. The two-year pro- gram consisted of 18 subjects. Upon completion, a diploma was awarded. Tuition was $100.00 per year, with room and board between $2.50-7 a week. A total of 62 students were enrolled. Unique School On The Move The college is a unique school for it has been involved in a series of reloca- tions throughout its existence. Its cam- pus was moved for the first time in 1886. The new site was Wesleyan Hall, 36 Bromfield Street, which still stands today. The Bromfield Street campus was larger, with adjoining rooms, which offered greater classroom space. The larger campus and greater dimensions provoked Emerson to take on addi- tional faculty. Ninety-seven students were enrolled at the time of this move. Along with a new location came a new name. As of September 1886, the Boston Conservatory of Elocution and Dramatic Art became known as the Emerson College of Oratory. As stated in A Century of Eloquence, a book de- tailing the first 100 years of Emerson College ' s history written by Associate Professor of History Rev. John Coffee, under the public Statutes 1882, Chap- Emerson College’s original location in Boston’s Pemberton Square. ter 115, the name change was " For the purposes of giving a general edu- cation to both sexes such as is ob- tained in colleges with special refer- ence to the perfection in oratory . . . with the powers, rights and priveleges . . . which by law apper tain thereto. " The foundations of greatness were set. In 1901, Dean of the college, Henry Lawrence Southwick, who was named president of the school when Emerson retired moved the college to a new location in Boston. The school ' s previ- ous location had been the Odd Fel- low ' s Building in the South End, where it had been since 1881 . The new campus was Chickering Hall, located about eight minutes from Copley Square, near the Christian Science Mother Church. A high crime rate in the area was one of the reasons for the institution ' s relocation. Southwick claimed the move was " In the best interest of the students, " adding the college in gen- eral was in favor of the change. In A Century of Eloquence, Southwick said the institution at that time was in, " An undesirable quarter of Boston. " He added even though the school ' s loca- tion (South End) was held dear by the students, a new and more desirable campus was needed. Chickering Hall was rented by the college as were its previous locations. Emerson occupied the first two floors. The second floor housed nine class- rooms, two of them lecture halls. On the first floor were a spacious hall, a library and administrative offices. Chickering Hall illustrated a sence of elegance, giving the new location a regal look. Unfortunately, the elegance of Chickering Hall was short lived. The high rent, coupled with Southwick ' s " ambitious and expensive plans " for the Institution caused Emerson to relo- cate 10 years later. The reasons for the move in 1901 were basically financial. The school had raised the standards for admission, therefore, many prospective students sought their education elsewhere. At this time, the school was also prohibit- ed by law from granting degrees. Graduates were not getting jobs. There was no cash flow. The rent at Chickering Hall was $3,000 more than the institution had been paying at the Odd Fellow ' s Building. A new home was greatly needed and the plush walls of Chickering Hall were left behind. When Emerson was forced to move from Chickering Hall in 1911, adminis- trators were forced to find a new loca- tion as well. This time the school was tie ! Ml (. ncl . line Chickering Hall near the Christian Science Mother Church. 28 On The Move 25 a elocated to an office building at 30 Huntington Avenue. The institution ' s new home, the Hun- ington Chambers was located above p Fannie Farmer Cooking School. The advantage was that it was still in the city and it proved to be the last build- ng the college would have to rent, ' he disadvantages were greater. However, students made the best of he circumstaces. They began each day with a morn- ng devotion and an oral interpretation 3f a piece of literature presented by a acuity member, usually South wick. Allowing the interpretation, students erformed Emerson ' s " physical cul- ural exercises ' ' accompanied by mu- ;ic. President Southwick ' s wife, Jessie Eldridge) Southwick then led the stu- dent body in song. The one-time offices proved to be nadequate classrooms. Students sat pn folding chairs with their books on he floor, in a bare small room, lit by a single light bulb. Often times the feacher was forced to teach without p podium. It was a matter of getting jsed to until their surroundings im- proved. Teachers, like Mrs. Southwick would inspire her students by reminding fhem to " Grow with me, the best is yet T|to be. ” The stage, located inside the former office building had no scenery, but the ighting and costumes detracted from fhe ugliness and generally, the perfor- mances were successful. Productions ncluded Dicken ' s A Christmas Carol, Shakespeare ' s Hamlet and selections from Kipling. Male roles were often played by women. The " offices” on the third floor con- sisted of a large room occupied by the president, the dean, faculty, their sec- retaries and registrar ' s. The confer- ence room was also a part of this di- mension. As described in A Century of Eloquence, the huge room was like a " wire cage, where the president and the dean may retire for conferences.” In the hall outside the office was an- other " wire cage,” the conference room. This one was for the treasurer, Issachar Floopes Eldridge. Tuition was $300.00, expensive for the 1930$. Space, or the lack of it has always been an obstacle for Emerson. In the past, the campus was moved all over the Back Bay. We will soon be moving out of the city. All in the name of space. Emerson solved the problem tempo- rarily in the early 1960s by purchasing their nineth building on Beacon Street, The Fuller House, the school ' s present library. The house was originally built at the turn of the century by Gov. Eben Drap- er, at a cost of $150,000. When he died. Gov. Alan T. Fuller moved in and named the mansion after himself. After Lack Of Space Always A Problem Fuller ' s death in 1958, the house was occupied by his widow until her death the following year, at which time, Nor- man Rabb, Stop 8c Shop supermarket chain vice president moved in. He then sold it to Emerson in 1961. Rabb ' s sister- in-law was an Emerson alumna, how- ever, it is unknown if this influenced him into selling it to the college for what was then considered a bargain, $345,000. By that time the need for space was increasing. That year, enrollment went up by 20 percent. Rumors were float- ing around Emerson that administrators were interested in buying the Hamp- shire House, the home of the Bull 8c Finch Pub (a.k.a. " Cheers”) as part of the campus. Bids were made, but ne- gotiations fell through. The Fuller House was on the open market and Emerson took advantage. On February 3, 1961, the Board of Trustees voted and authorized the purchase of the four-story whitestone mansion. The process was conluded on April 4, after school officials signed the final papers. As a dormitory, the Fuller House of- fered elegant living quarters to some 30 women. Male students were al- lowed to reside there later. The man- sion provided students with class- rooms, a place for entertainment and study halls. The building also served as the institution ' s main dining room, ini- tially with a seating for those select, but eventually expanded to serve 100. At that time, enrollment was up to 670 students. As with many historial buildings in the Back Bay, conversions and renovations must be made in order to update. However, in the case of the 150 Bea- con Street building, administrators The Fuller Mansion, once the Governor’s home now houses books for Emerson. have gone too far. In A Century of Eloquence Coffee wrote, " A number of cupids adorned a gloriously painted ceiling in 150 Beacon Street. Those were painted over deliberately, be- cause apparently their nudity was found offensive by someone in authority. " Emerson is currently facing a move from the city because of similar condi- tions which plagued the Hunting ton Chambers campus and the other lo- cations. Let ' s hope that today ' s ad- ministrators will look at the past and learn from it. History repeats itself, time has shown us this. Possibly, Lawrence will be another Chickering Hall, too ex- pensive to handle. In any case, time has shown us that Emerson ' s adminis- trators are not most insightful real es- tate buyers.

This event gives parents an opportunity to visit the college and get a feel of what goes on there as to not only their kids ' academic and social lives, but also the importance and impact of the many student-run organi- zations on campus. Many events were planned to illustrate the Emerson Experi- ence to moms and dads on this special weekend. A beautiful dinner was held at the Park Plaza with musical en- tertainment by the Cabaret Players. Moms and dads will agree that this weekend provided them with a great taste of the Emerson Experience. Parents Weekend 31 Between Classes ► £’ 32 Between Classes Crossroads CROSSROADS is Emerson ' s fa- vorite watering hole and " only social gathering place. " It is the place to go to see old friends, meet new friends see everyone who ' s anyone. This year, because of the col- lege ' s new alcohol policy. Crossroads became an even more important part of Emer- son ' s social scene. Rho Delta Omega hosted Tuesday Nights at Crossroads as well as their Delta Island party. The sisters of Kappa Gamma Chi held their " Rock the Kappa " party there and the sisters of Sigma Pi Theta presented Vaz, the manager, with a special plaque for his dedication to Em- erson students. Many fraternity and sorority members celebrated the Greek Weekend festivities at this hangout, after tormenting their bodies. The seniors counted down the days to graduation by having their " 100 Days Party " there. Crossroads is as much a part of Emerson as the " Wall, " and will continue to be so as long as the college remains in Boston. Crossroads 33 1 u e c e m b e r D e c e m b e r D e c e m b e r D e c e m b e r D e c e m b e r D e c e m This year ' s lip synch contests, spon- sored by Lawrence Hall were held once again at Narcissus. The shows featured imitations of Aerosmith, Sade, David Lee Roth, Sting and a host of others. The lip synch competition gives stu- dents a chance to live out their fanta- sies as their favorite rock stars. The air guitars are matched in energy only by the " vocal ' ' performances. Chet Brewster, ' 86, who performed " I Meant No Harm, ' ' from the musical " Dream Girls " won first prize for the December 10 lip synch contest, while Tim Lalumia, ' 87, and Chris Stearns, ' 87 who performed a hit song from Simon and Garfunkel won first prize at the March 25 contest. 34 Lip Synch Lip Synch 35 e c e m b e r D e c e m b e r D e c e m b e r D Emerson Comedy Workshop Emerson Comdey Workshop, which featured Mike Drazen, Tev Dale, Moni- ca Callan, Wally Kemp, Audrey Glass- man, Dan Mizner, Eric Potter, Sue Solo- mine, Matt Pollock and Martin Bogner performed two funny shows this past year, in Charlesgate ' s Beige Room. The first show, " Jimmy Go Swim in the Moat " featured skits saterizing ev- erything from Sally Struthers ' TV ap- peals for donations, to professional wrestling, to child abuse. The enthusiasm of the first show was matched by their second perfor- mance entitled " McDutra Jr. High Pre- sents ... " It featured the best poster art of the year, but it was the quality writing and rapid pace of the show which made for another entertaining evening. e c e m 36 Comedy Workshop This Is Pathetic What was originally perceived as being a rebuilding year for This Is Pa- thetic turned out to be one of the strongest of this comedy group ' s histo- ry. The two returning members, Tony Clark and Laura Kightlinger beefed up the forces by adding Steven Vara, Don Wood, Kristin Watters, Nicole Tor- re, Matt O ' Shea, Neil Pollock and Mark Fatsberg. The first show, " Only Two Things Smell Like This, " established a retrun to the zany style the group is known for. This was followed by a riotous second show, " All My Beautiful Dreams. " A combination of solid writing and fine enssemble performance made this a banner year for T I P. T I P 37 Kwanza Christmas Dinner Kwanza is often cited as being the African Christmas, which is a misnomer since it existed before the birth of Christ. The original holiday celebrates a unique ' principle of life ' on each of the seven days. The one-day American version be- gan gaining popularity during the ' 60s, when many Afro-Americans found little cultural flavor in the general celebra- tion of Christmas. This year ' s Kwanza dinner attracted 62 people to Chalesgate ' s Beige Room. Along with the December 8 din- ner, there were theatrical presenta- tions, oral interpretations and speeches. b e r D e c e m b e r D Christmas 39 j Holland a 40 Holland Thomas Stewart UNTITLED Distance.

Leadership Weekend Restart Retreat 41 Super Bowl Long-suffering New England football fans were treated to a Super Bowl season by the NFL Patriots. Autumn lasted until January as the usually-inept locals hus- tled their way to three upset victories in the playoffs over the Jets, Raiders and Dolphins. A city hall rally the week of the Miami game drew thou- sands of Bostonians on a cold and windy day to chant " Squish the Fish " at the top of their lungs. Our heroes obliged and Super Bowl hysteria swept the area during winter break. With the onset of second semester, fans enjoyed Super Bowl parties from Seekonk to Saugus, unfortunately spoiled by the awesome Chicago Bears, 46-10. The important thing is that fans will always savor the ex- citement of Super Bowl mania ' 86 8c We squished the fish!!! SKIN THE BEAR SUPERBOWL TROPHY BY TIFFANY 42 Super Bowl Barbara Follett Photo Contest Winner Judged by: Tom Gasse Tom Jennings Jeff Lima Sue Locklin 52 Photo Contest It Takes Thought A Tribute To The Challengers By Maria Leon i ( " Challenger, go with throttle up.” No one knew that those words would be the last we would hear before the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded 90 seconds after its 11:39 a.m. take-off on Tuesday, January 28, 1986, killing its seven crew members instantly. I Americans probably would not have paid special atten- tion to the 25th launch in the Space Shuttle Program — since it had become an ordinary occurrence — had it not been for a very important passenger. This passenger, who would be on board the Challenger ' s 10th flight, was chosen from 11,000 applicants by President Ronald Reagan last June to be the first civilian — more specifically, the first schoolteacher — in space. By the time the Shuttle was launched, every American, both adult and child alike, had found their hero 37-year-old Christa McAuliff, a Concord New Hampshire High School teacher. She had become a symbol of hope and pride in bofh our shuttle program and in America, for she exemplified fhe all-American schoolteach- er. The subject she taught high school students was Social Studies, the lessons she taught the world were self-confi- dence and motivation to allow our abilities to take us as far as possible. Her vitality and will convinced everyone to trust her; she became a teacher to the world. Through the attention given to Christa McAuliffe, we came to know the crew members she would accomapny into space. We admired and applauded Shuttle Com- mander Francis " Dick” Scobee, 46, on his 2nd flight; Michael Smith, 40, the shuttle pilot making his 1st flight; Payload Spcialist Gregory Jarvis, 41, also in his 1st flight; 2nd flight Mission Specialist Dr. Ronald E. McNair, 35; Mission Specialist Ellison Onizuka, 39, making his 2nd flight, and Dr. Judith Res- nick, 36, also a mission specialist on her 2nd flight. Of couse, whaf the world witnessed on Jan. 28 was com- pletely unexpected and utterly devastating. It was 19 years the day before that we had lost astronauts Vergil Grissom, Edward White and Roger Chaffee when fire broke out in their shuttle while still on the launch pad, just minutes before take-off. No one thought it would happen again. On the ill-fated day of the Challenger explosion, the en- tire world felt a loss so great that it could only be measured with the grief and shock felt on the day of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. His belief in our space program had been carried on for more than 20 years and as we now began to question our faith in the space pro- gram, so we also unwillingly gave up our chance to watch our heroes fulfill the dreams the world shared with Presi dent Kennedy. Each of fhese astronauts displayed a bravery, that to them was so instinctive, that they simply did what they enjoyed and what they believed in. They taught us we cannot go farther than we aim, but that we can aim as far as we allow ourselves, for the sky is no longer our limit. Through them, we learned to take pride in America and in American technology. We dared to dream — for them and for ourselves — and although we sadly said goodbye to this crew, we realize they gave their lives for what they trusted, in their hearts, was right and good. Whenever we mention Tuesday, Jan. 28, 1986 or see the launching of another space shuttle or read the words, " Challenger, go with throttle up,” we will fondly remember Dick, Michael, Gregory, Ronald, Ellison, Judith and Christa and through our tears we will recall the most important lesson gained form these brave citizens: only those who reach can touch the stars. Challenger 45 e b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r u V-66 Valentine Party Founded just one year ago, Emerson ' s Programming Com- mittee put on a smashing Valen- tine ' s Day party on February 13. That day, V-66 broadcasted live from Chalesgate ' s Blue Room, with DJ Perry Stone. Be- sides a dance contest, a sub- marine-eating contest and a soda-sucking from a baby bot- tle contest, Emersonians had an opportunity to see themselves on television via a big-screen TV. The 20-member committee was headed by Darren Scala, ' 87. 46 V-66 a r V I V-66 47 I Black History e b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r Monday, January 26, marked the first national celebration of the birth- day of Martin Luther King, Jr. The long- overdue observance was an emotion- al and spiritual event not only across the conntry, but at Emerson as well. On March, 1, a special presentation was held in Dr. King ' s memory in the Student Union as part of Black History Week (Feb. 24-March 1), sponsored by Emerson ' s Black Organization of Natu- ral Interests (EBONI). Prior to the screening of the docu- mentary “Montgomery To Memphis, " which chronicled Dr. King ' s efforts to achieve racial equality and harmony, there were speeches by several stu- dents and a memorable tribute to King and society in general by Emerson pro- fessor Mark McPhail, “What Manner Of Man. " Other Black History Week activities included poetry readings, a black triv- ia game show, a presentation of black historical films and videos and a week- long scavenger hunt. 48 Black History Week Black History Week 49 J F b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r u a r y F e b r Assassin Sponsored by Alpha Pi Theta, the second annual game of espionage, Assassin was again a success this year. It ' s a game of skill and wits where one never knows his or her opponent until it is too late. Held in February, Assassin is a combi- nation of a high level of creativity and a flow of adrenalin to make up one of the most participated games on campus. 50 Assassin Places Well Always Remember Places 51 Move it or lose it. That ' s what it came down to, in the end. When “Two Centuries of Eloquence " is written in 2080, let it be recorded that Emerson ' s decision to pack up the plantation and find a piece in the valley was dictated not by a crazy whim, but out of abso- lute necessity. Cramped in the Back Bay and with little room to grow, the powers that be at Emerson College looked for a new place to hang their hat. College Presi- dent Allen E. Koenig thought he had a deal in April 1985 with the city of Bos- ton. Emerson would sell its 18 Back Bay buildings and get them back on the city tax rolls, and Mayor Ray Flynn and company would find us a new location in Boston. Emerson was shown over 25 sites in Year In Review: Fr dent Government Association (SGA) President Robert Stafford, Senators Cedric Harmon and Marc Douthit and Communication Politics and Law pro- fessor Walt Littlefield were among the stirring orators who led 400-plus stu- dents in a decision to engage in a pro- test march against Bedford on Sep- tember 26. The rally took place at the Wall fol- lowing a silent procession from Charlesgate to 130 Beacon Street. Students wore black arm bands to symbolize a “death of communication between students and administration. They chanted, “Bag Bedford " and other less printable things. Meanwhile, the college worked overtime trying to sell Emerson to Bed- ford. But the locals, led by the Board of Selectmen in general and selectwo- man Carol Goldman in particular, didn ' t want us rowdies moving into their neighborhood and, in the words of one resident near the country club property on Old Billerica Road, " Get- ting drunk and knocking over our mailboxes. " Emerson ' s Public Relations office tried, but not even someone like the President ' s RR man could have con- vinced the citizens of Bedford that we ' re really not all that bad. While some 400 Emersonians signed cards stating their opposition to the move (which Stafford delivered to the Trustees), the Bedford folks passed pe- titions and discussed taking the coun- try club back from Emerson by eminent domain. As the weather turned colder, the wheeling and dealing began to heat up. Frustrated by public opinion in Bed- ford, college officials began re-think- ing their strategy on the move. On No- vember 18, rumors that the Bedford deal was dead in the wake of two offers from northern Massachusetts cit- mosl ies of Lowell and Lawrence were con- firmed. Bedford residents were elatec by the news, and Emerson ' s SGA coulc point out their success in stopping the f move there. The L awrence offer was orchestrat- ed largely by 5th District Congressman Chester Atkins (D-Concord), who de- cided to make Emerson ' s move “the greatest achievement " of his first term on Capitol Hill. Atkins, along with retiree Senator Paul Tsongas ' bid from Lowell, set up a bidding war in early Decem- ber, which was not just flattering to Emerson personnel, but a whole lot of fun as well. The way Koenig set it up, two buses carrying students, faculty and adminis- tration would treck to the two cities on December 11. Bus number one went to Lawrence first, while the second vis- ited Lowell. Both parties got lunch, then visited the other city in the after- noon. Feedback and responses were reported to Koenig at a closed-door meeting that night at Boston ' s Park Plaza Hotel. The lasting impressions of the Lowell site, 35 acres in a renovated mill build- ing, were a professional presentation by city officials, a good town location, and a relatively easy commute to Bos- ton. However, many present at the Park Plaza questioned the college ' s room for growth after it relocated in 1988, and if the $10 million asking price wasn ' t a bit too steep. The Lawrence presentation was somewhat of a lark to many students J cer who found the slide show during the city ' s presentation basic and the marching band which greeted the visi- tos at the actual site perhaps a tad on the campy side. But the lamb dinner at the Bishop ' s Restaurant was superb, and Emerson appeared to be seen as a key aspect in Lawrence ' s future. Koenig announced his decision for :ec was ear 1 4 old cor dec and around the city, but none were even close to ideal. Thus, when the class of 1985 graduated and the rest of us went home for the summer, the whole situation was up in the air. During the summer, with a Boston re- location all but ruled out, Koenig 8c oth- er school officials looked at properties in West Roxbury, Lexington and Burling- ton before deciding on August 12 to buy a 59-acre golf course in the re- mote outpost of Bedford for $4 million. No one in the administration would admit it then, and will not do so publicly now, but the Bedford decision was a bad one. As it was universally loathed by students, faculty and especially by the residents of that town. Trouble in the alleged paradise be- gan in September, when students called a forum on the move issue. Stu- 52 Year In Review II Emerson On The Move .awrence at a December 18 press inference. Students were less than pleased at the timing, coming as it did ; n the last day of the semester, when inost people had gone home for a nonth. Two days later, following the rustees ' announcement of the institu- tion ' s move to that city, another re- ption was held there, and all was orgiven. A memorandum of understanding was signed by city and school officials, A ith a target of August 1986, for groundbreaking. Throughout January, 1986, reports of legotiations with owners of the land earmarked for Emerson surfaced. Har- old Brooks, who owned 25 acres and controlled 22 more, was said to be ogainst giving his land up for 125 per- cent of its worth (under the eminent Jomain process). Following extensive dealing, Brooks agreed to a land swap deal with Lawrence in March, which gave him 80 acres of land at another iite in exc hange for his property at the proposed Emerson campus. Lawrence officials also hired Edward Logue to direct the land-taking and legal aspects of the move. Logue is known for his work on many major de- velopments in Boston, including the Prudential project and Government Center. Once the land deal with Brooks was cut, Emerson ' s architects, Stopfel Inc., began soil testing on the land. An ad- jacent plot across the Andover Law- rence town line, owned by John Cor- coran Company, was also taken by the city in March, and soil testing there began in April. Even now, with soil testing being done and Stopfel still designing the new campus, delays in the land acqui- sition and design have pushed ground- breaking for 1987. This comes as good news for current Emerson students, since the college will not be moving north until 1989, after all of us enrolled have graduated. On May 2, the Board of Trustees re- viewed a $1 million March offer and proposal by Catamount Corporation to purchase the Majestic Theatre. They decided to let Koenig go ahead with negotiations between the school and the Boston-based oil and real es- tate development company. However, the old Saxon Theatre, which the school purchased from the Sach Movie chain for $575,000 in May 1983, has not been sold as of yet. The company ' s plans are to convert the building into condominium units, while reducing the size of the theatre. Meanwhile, Koenig wants the theatre portion as a gift and plans to construct a new home for WERS-FM in the base- ment of the structure as part of a par- tial Boston presence for the school. Emerson ' s Back Bay property was put up for sale (as a package) on the open market in January, after Boston developer Paul Ferazzi ' s $105 million offer fell through due to a lack of inves- tors. Whether or not the 18 buildings are going to be sold as a package is still up in the air as a nationwide search for buyers continues. The Majestic would not be included in the package, school officials said. A unified campus and a bigger en- dowment (of some $34 million as op- posed to a $1 milllion endowment) are just two of the many dreams Koenig has for Emerson. The president stressed that his major priority is still to bring uni- versity status to the college as he had announced in his 1979 speech when he first came to Emerson. His expansion dreams have been made impossible by organizations such as the Neighbor- hood Association of the Back Bay (NABB), Back Bay residents and the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA), causing university status to be posponed until the school is settled in its new location. As for the deal with Bedford, Emer- son signed a purchase and sale agree- ment with the town on May 19. The school was offered $5 million for the golf course. And the move to Lawrence is be- coming more and more a reality for Emerson as negotiations between school and city officials continue. Ev- erything is pretty much on schedule and moving along well, said Emerson ' s Director of Public Relations William Har- rold. Harrold said Emerson is looking to have control of the Lawrence proper- ty by September 1986 and is also ne- gotiating to purchase an additional 50 acres to the 79 acres in Andover, from an independent owner whom he would not identify. In mid March, the SGA made a do- nation of $100.00 on behalf of the stu- dent body, as an initial deposit for the new location of the college. Although the move no longer af- fects us directly, we the students of Emerson College should endeavor to make certain the school does right by future generations of Emersonians. We should offer suggestions on campus design, new programs and anything else that would improve the quality of life for this institution as the third millen- ium approaches.

Those wishing to see the finish had to hang out at Copley Square instead of the Pru, and the runners they turned out to cheer for were rewarded with prize money for the first time. The marathon is a writer ' s spring in Boston and Emersonians were able to take a break from term papers and studying for finals to watch the some 5,000 runners navigate the 26-mile course. 56 Marathon 1st Place Eboni Banquet On April 25, approximately 100 stu- dents, faculty, staff, administrators and friends joined together at the Lenox Hotel for Emerson ' s Black Organization with Natural Interests (EBONI) ' s end-of- the-year banquet. This year ' s banquet was especially significant because it marked the organization ' s 15th anni- versary. Community leadership awards were presented to Clinton Carter, formerly a security guard at Emerson and Lovell Dyett, of Channel 7 for their contribu- tions to the community-of-color. A special award was initiated this year in honor of Roger McPhail, associate pro- fessor of Communication Studies for his many years of service as founder, ad- visor and backbone of the organiza- tion. Walt Littlefield, associate profes- sor of Communication Studies was the first recipient of the award. Danielle Georges won the EBONI Woman-of- the-Year Award and Harold Baldwin and George Christopher Simpkins III won the EBONI Man-of-the-Year Award. All senior members of the orga- nization were presented with certifi- cates, and a special tribute was made to McPhail, who did his undergraduate and graduate studies at Emerson and had taught at the school for some 15 years. Music was provided by Steve Guisbe. Everyone enjoyed themselves while celebrating EBONI ' s past growth and future promise. Eboni Banquet 57 Spring Fling ’86 Spring Fling has flung. Yet another eventful and fun week of free events for stu- dents lit up the Emerson campus as some 400-500 Emersonians were treated to entertainment by a stilt walker, a magician who performed at the Wall be- tween April 4-8. We were also treated to music by Emerson favorite, Greg Greenway The festivities were spon- sored by the Programming Committee, headed by Darren Scala, ' 87. The com- mittee was created one year ago to program events on campus and make more use of the stu- dent activities fee paid yearly by each student. Surely everyone would agree that their 2c was well spent! Spring Fling 59 Smiling Faces 1 This year ' s Hand Me Down Night (Black Tie Ball), was held at the Hyatt Regency in Cam- bridge. On April 8, some 400 Emerson- ians, friends of Emersonians, ad- ministration and faculty mem- bers witnessed the handing down of leadership positions and were introduced to the new student-run organization leaders for the 1986-87 school year. This elegant and impressive well-organized occassion was put together by Student Gov- ernment Association, Vice Presi- dent Dawn Fisher-Gross, ' 87 and Nicholas Caprio, ' 88, SGA secretary. Among the special guests were Emerson President Dr. Allen E. Koenig, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost; Dr. John M. Kittross, Mr. and Hand-Me-Down Night Mrs. William Callahan II, parents of Senior Class President Bill Cal- lahan; Mr. and Mrs. John Staf- ford, parents of SGA President Robert Stafford; and Lawrence Mayor Kevin J. Sullivan and his wife Mary Ellen. After the roll call of all of the new student leaders, those at- tending this memorable cere- mony were invited to dance to the sounds of " Fat City " and Dave Ozer ' s DJ-ing. H M.D.N. 63 On May 4, following a great Crossroads (where else) " Get Disoriented " kick-off party, Emersonians headed out to Ag- awam, MA., for an enjoyable day of fun in the sun at Riverside Park. Emerson students could be spotted whipping by on the Cy- clone Roller Coaster, in mid-air on the famous Loop-de-Loop, swinging by on a Slingshot, or just chumming around with the park ' s wacky animals. Riverside SL 64 Riverside i Leaving Long Wharf at 8 p.m. on May 7, Emersonians sailed out for a rockin ' , misty harbor cruise. Featured on board was a DJ, and let ' s not forget the cash bar! Few were priveledged to see the infamous Dave Ozer, ' 87, dancing and socializing (as a passenger) as opposed to his well-achieved DJ status. Tickets were provided by the senior class and were free to all. Cruise Cruise 65 One of the most anticipated events during Senior Week was the Clambake held at the all- too-famous Castle Hill Beach in Ipswich, MA., on May 5. This day was a chance for many Emer- sonians to return to the beach they had gone to freshman year. Eats of the day included steamers, lobsters, steaks, hot dogs and all the fixin ' s. The rainy, hazy weather only boosted the Emerson spirit throughout the whole event. Added to the ex- citement of the volleyball games, frisbee and swimming was music by Dave Ozer. These pictures say it all - What a great time! Castlehill t Seniors 67 On May 8, Seniors and friends were invited to share in the elegance of the Senior Banquet at the Copley Marriott Hotel.

We de- vote this section to who we call, Mov- ers and Shakers. These are people from all aspects of Emerson who we feel are truly instrumental to Emerson life. The 1986 Emersonian Editorial Board selects a Professor, an adminis- trator, a student and a special service award for an athletic favorite. The first person to be honored is a dear professor who is well deserving of this honor. This is Walter Littlefield, known to most of us as Walt. Walt be- gan his Emerson career in 1964. He be- came very active by initiating the pro- paganda courses here in 1965-66. In 1977, Walt was cited in the Real Paper as one of the outstanding teachers inthe Boston area in colleges and universities. Walt received a spe- cial commendation by the Governor, in 1981 for analysis of the " Make it in Mass. ' ' campaign. In his 22 years at Emerson Prof. Little- field has been consistently cited by students as an outstanding teacher of the college. He has helped build such programs as a solid overseas program, before the college came upon Kasteel Well. Walt also initiated a strong relation- ship with Senator Mark Hatfield, and was instrum ental in getting Hatfield as commencement speaker and an Hon- orary degree for him from the college. In October students saw Walt ' s de- votion during the " Conspiracy of Si- lence ' ' that overcame the faculty and administration over the Move issue. Walt was the only faculty member to speak to the students at an Open Fo- rum held for concerned students. Currently, Walt is Chief advisor to the Communication, Politics and Law pro- gram. Under his leadership the pro- gram has grown to a solid 50 students per year. There has also been special internships established in the stae At- torney Generals office. Walt is also a consultand to various Massachusetts ' politicians and community leaders. In his free time (Hard to believe he actually has any) Walt performs pup- pet theater with his wife, Marcie. He also enjoys gardening and is active in Marshfield ' s Little League and it ' s town politics. Walt holds a special place in the hearts of many Emersonians. The Emer- sonaian is proud to honor Proffessor Walt Littlefield,. This quote from Dr. Vito Silvestri, Chair of the Communication Studies department, sums it all up: " I want to say that we value Walter Littlefield very much in this division as a true aca- demic and citizen and as a friend to all of us. We love him dearly . . . " 112 Movers And Shakers Roger McPhail Roger McPhail is the Boards unanomous decision as our spe- cial administrator. The name evokes a certain timelessness in the minds of many Emersonians. Roger began his Emerson Experi- ence 15 years ago as a student. Upon graduation Roger fur- thered his Emerson lifestyle by joining the faculty. A true Mover and Shaker, Roger is responsible for bringing us the Cultural Cen- ter and the Office of Minority ln- ternational Affairs. Roger was constantly working to provide better services for students of color and students in general. He has succeded in bringing all sorts of Emersonians together in such events as Kwanza and Har- ambi dinners, keeping in the Afri- can tradition. As an instructor, Roger chal- lenged us to become effective communicators. He showed us the path, yet forced us to walk it alone. He illustrated how impor- tant self-expression was thru oral interp, thru public speaking, and thru interpersonal com- munication. As an administrator, Roger challenged us to develop our leadership skills. He encouraged us to make our own decisions both realistically and ethically. As a friend, Roger challenged us to take the skills that we had learned in classrooms and orga- nizations and aaply them to our everyday lives. He was always there for students to talk to-and remained a student advocate throughout his years at Emerson. His contributions to the Emer- son community are many, but, more importantly, are his contri- butions to students, and his sup- port of our efforts. For all he has done the 1986 Emersonian would like to honor Roger McPhail and thank him for all he has added to Emerson life. Movers And Shakers 113 Robert Stafford Under our special section of Movers and Shakers, the Editorial Board had quite a selection of active seniors to choose from. In a unanimous decision, Robert Stafford rose to the top of the list. Jumping in feet first, Robert started off his four years as Freshman class prez., this was his first involvement with the student government. Sophmore year Robert was the Business editor of the Berkely Beacon Paper. Junior year Robert won the elections as junior class prez. He also organized and co-found- ed Communications-Politics and Law Association a and brought such promi- nent speakers as Senator Mark Hatfield and Joe Kennedy. Senior year Robert becaame the 1986 SGA president. The SGA team made up of V.P. Dawn Fisher-Gross, treas. Criag Vachon, and sec. Nick Caprio kept quite busy. Emersonians saw an eventful year. In October SGA held a rally to protest the moving of the campus. This was a difficult situa- tion for Robert because he was trying to convey the administration ' s view to the students and convey the students views in board and other meetings. Through his excellent communication skills, Robert successfully led the stu- dents to expressing their views thru an open forum, a rally, and he delivered over 600 cards with students votes on the issue, to the Board of Trustees Mr. Stafford was also very active in other aspects of Emerson life. He was a co-founder of the new Student Alumni Relation Association, established a stu- dent member on the Board of Trust- ees, received oustanding mention for his leadersip in the Model United Na- tions over the past 7 years, and was a also the well deserved recipient of the Presidents award with Senior class Prez. Bill Callahan. As a student, Robert achieved Deans list and was voted onto Interna- tional Who ' s Who in America. Fellow Emersonians find Robert to be very personable. Whether it ' s chatting at the wall or helping a new Emerson leader to plan an event. The 1986 Em- ersonian is proud to honor Robert Stfford as award-winning member in the Emrsonian Mover and Shaker Hall of Fame. 114 Movers And Shakers Coach Jim Bradley " James Bradley doesn ' t demand victori es from his players on the court but hopes to train winners in life. " (This quote from the Berkeley Beacon perfectly describes our next Mover and Shaker. Bradley has been a part of Emer- son for 20 years. Since 1968 " Mr. B " has served as varsity basketball and baseball coach. He has held nearly every administrative position within the Greater Boston Small College League. Since 1946, he has been coaching and operating numerous basketball leagues and camps in Boston. Active within Emerson walls as well as outside of the school, the coach has been involved in many programs which give underprive- ledged youngsters a chance to learn the game of basketball. For 10 years now the coach, along Boston Celtic great Coach John Havelicek served as directors and part owners of the John Havelicek Basketball School. Bradley and Boston Celtics coa- ch K.C. Jones set up the K.C. Jones Basketball Camp over two years ago. For all of his efforts in helping youth in the Boston community, he has been named to the New En- gland Sports Magazine Hall of Fame and was also nominated to the Board of Directors of the New England Sports Museum founded by retired-Celtic Dave Cowens. Within Emerson walls, " Mr. B " is an essential key in the Athletic De- partment. His nutty sense of humor and hearty laugh serve as a great support to fellow Emersoninans. This support is surely a factor in leading men ' s basketball to the Third Division. " Jim Bradley proved to be one of the smartest moves made at Emer- son, " said College Athletic Director James Peckham. With all of this under his belt. Coach Bradley finds his place in the Emersonian Mover and Shaker Hall of Fame. Movers And Shakers 115 Joe Kennedy When United States Speaker of the House Thomas " Tip " O ' Neill announced his retire- ment, the race was on to fill his 8th Congressional seat, More than 15 candidates ran, but the two front-runners were the two with the most famous names. Both visited Emerson during Spring ' 86, They are Joe Kennedy and Jim Roosevelt. Joseph Kennedy II, son of Rob- ert and nephew of former Presi- dent John F. Kennedy, attract- ed a large turnout to the Student Union on March 31, as 200 or so Emersonians squeezed into Room 21 to catch a glimpse. Kennedy ' s 20-minute speech, which was sponsored by the Communication Politics and law Association, was more style than issues. But the young candidate ' s stage presence and public ser- vice work with the Massachu- setts Citizens ' Energy Corpora- tion made him more than a guy with a famous name, leading all of the polls as of June 1. 1 16 Movers And Shakers Jim Roosevelt James Roosevelt, in contrast, portrayed a personal side. A grandson of former Presi- dent Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the candidate embraced many of FDR ' s new deal policies and promised to bring them to Washington with him. Along with State Senator George Bachrach and local representative Thomas Gal- lagher, Roosevelt offered local democrats an alternative to a new generation of Kennedy rule. Regardless of the outcome, the 8th district race showed why Boston is the political hotbed of America, and why there is no better place to get involved in the plitical scene. Roosevelt ' s April 17 visit to Em- erson was sponsored by the In- tercollegiate Student Govern- ment Association. The newly-established organi- zation was founded by fresh- man class president Garrett Bess inan effort to bring together stu- dents from various Boston-area colleges and universities.

Rho Delta Omega is based on the idea of brother- hood. The brothers of RDO feel that a large quantity of brothers is not necessary to establish this idea. It was the quality of the man rather than the quanitity of the men that is important. For this reason RDO has always re- mained small, but maintained a high percentage of scholastic, athletic and extra-curricular ac- tivity leaders.

The Lions, however, hope for a promising future as they losed only one player, Eric Woods, who had been an outstanding all-aroung player in his final years at Emerson. Catcher Tim Corcoran will lead a sol- id returning infield of Tom Tate (.410 1HR), shortstop Eric Sherman, second baseman Tim Neverett (.375), and An- son Tebbetts. Mike Potenza will take charge in the outfield; while some young fireballers hope to pace the Em- erson Lions, coached by Jim Bradley, to the playoffs in 1986. 132 Baseball 4 4 Baseball 133 The hearts and true spirits of Emerson ' s soccer team shined brightly through their injury filled 0-12 season. With injuries to key players Captains Michael Kate- har and Michael Harris, Coach Hugo Logo was able to rein- force his attack against some sticky opponents. Helping to keep the team afloat and charging, were Dawn DeSi- mone, Paul Stickel, Jay Bein- stock, and several Pele clones. Surfacing as part of the back- bone to this soul-filled team, were goal tender Stephan Hen- ry and team scoring leader George Nicopoulos. 134 Soccer Coach Gwen Jones and assistant David Neville tackled the Women ' s Di- vision of NCAA III Basketball with their upstart women ' s team at Emerson. This Lion ' s team featured a starting line-up of Lisa Ricci, Suzy Allaire, Dianne Dirlam, Barbara Turman, and Libby Jackson that helped the women to a record of 4-12. Team leaders this season were Dianne Dirlam with 15 points per game and Libby Jackson with 8 rebounds per game. Showcasing the ferocious sup- porting cast were Lisa DeHaan, Sa- mantha Rutherford, Laura Douglas, Kendra Sherwood, and Carolyn Freyer. irst Row: Lisa Ricci, Laura Douglas, Samantha Rutherford, Carolyn Freyer; 2nd dw: Lisa DeHaan, Barbara Turman, Libby Jackson, Dianne Dirlam, Kendra Sher- ood, Suzy Allaire. Basketball 135 The 1985-86 season brought an end to the Jim Bradley Era. In his twenty years as Emerson ' s basketball coach, he brought the program from the back of a station wagon to NCAA Division III status. The Lions compiled a 7-14 record and were led by center Chet Brewster, who led the team in scoring (13.6ppg) and rebounding (11.6rpg). Brewster surpassed the 1500 point milestone in his four year career at Emerson. Senior Harold Baldwin scored over 1000 points as a four year starter. Emerson lost only two regular start- ers and only six seniors: Brewster, Bill Flaherty, Marc Douthit, Jim Paone, and Paul Galmitz. Next season this young team will be led by two returning fresh- man starters and a new coach and can be considered a top contender in the Commonwealth Coast Con- ference. 136 Basketball 138 Basketball Basketball 139 This past season was the hockey team ' s Winter Wonder- land! Coach Drew Taylor ' s team, featuring Captain Stan Travers, star goalie Mike Po- tenza, John Jones, Culter Whit- man, and a host of others, brought Emerson its best record ever in Hockey.
