We sincerely hope that the pages of this book Will bring back
many happy memories of the past and will enable our present and

istically one of friendliness on the part of the administration and
student bodyg a quality which makes for better fellowship in class
and out, so basic in the development of our future responsibilities
in our various fields of endeavor.
In early life man lives in the future: in later years he recalls past ex-
periencesg and in old age he lives wholly in the past.

BULKELEY IN l923
By William J. Ruddy
The class of 1923 stands out as unique in the history of Bulkeley
School because it has continued alive and active as a unit since graduation
day. We of the class of '23 are proud of this achievement.
A review of the history of this class reflects the spirit which binds its
members in such strong bonds of friendship. Starting our freshman year
with an enrollment of seventy-two, we reached our senior year with a
membership of forty. Looking back now it is refreshing to relive the
happiest days of my life.
The world today, struggling to reach a common ground for adjustment
of differences between nations, could well take a lesson from this unusual
class. Here a group of young men, descendants of various nationalties
and creeds, worked together to promote the best interests of school and
of each other. It stands forth as an example of democracy functioning
at its best. I recall vividly before class and during study periods the
ranking members of the class, patiently and with every consideration,
helping their more unfortunate brethren prepare for examinations or
recitations. These boys shared in the successes and failures of one
another. There was no personal envy. It was common to hear them
boast and glorify the achievements of their fellow members. A whole-
some spirit pervaded each class room as these boys talked man to man
with their teachers concerning the facts of life as well as education.
The class of '23 was well-balanced mentally, physically and spiritually.
These boys had a mature sense of judgment. They played hard and en-
joyed themselves to the fullest, yet they never lost sight of the real pur-
pose of education. They applied themselves with vigor and completeness
of mind to the study of those subjects which would tend to advancement
toward their ultimate vocations.
Closing my eyes, pictorial flashes of those happy days parade in re-
view through the depths of my mind-Milton Phillips, our room master,
giving us straight from the shoulder advice-Gippie and Hall going from
one desk to another untangling those tough problems in solid geometry
or refreshing our minds as to the proper translation of Virgil-Those
football games, especially the 33 to 0 beating we gave Norwich. Then
there was that three day trip to Leominster, Mass., remember? Our pic-
tures on the front page of the town paper, theater and dancing parties, the
fun in the hotel rooms, in fact the whole town turned over to Bulkeley-
Those baseball games, one of the best teams in the State with Freddie Zepp
our leading twirler-The senior prom, what a dance! School auditorium
decorated with vari-colored streamers, favors of all kinds for the girls, and
dancing until 1 A. M.-The school plays-The school orchestra-Finally
graduation night and that sense of loss as though leaving home.
However, for most of the Class of '23 the future had been well planned.
These boys knew what they wanted to do-they had planned well-and
they stepped forward with confidence.
The number of doctors, lawyers, accountants and other professional
men of this class filling positions of responsibility today is living evidence
that these boys held to a straight course and reached their ultimate goal.
In humbleness and modesty, I dould not wish better for the boys of
Bulkeley today and of the future than that they emulate the records,
spirit and tradition of their predecessors in the Class of '23.

TO THE CLASS OF l948
It seems quite natural, as our senior year draws to a close, for all of us to reflect, momen-
tarily, on the net result of our high school training about to reach completion. This re-
flection with its consequent appraisal of our total school experiences is shared, in good
measure, by thoughtful faculty members who, like all serous minded students, are vitally
concerned with a "whither now" frame of mind.
The Staff at Bulkeley has tried sincerely to give you, members of the Class of 1948, the
broadest and very best type of secondary education possible, a type calculated to be pos-
sessed of quality rather than quantity, and one suited to your needs as you go out of high
school into the days immediately ahead of you.
We have been constantly reminded and are well aware of the confused, unsettled and,
in many instances, chaotic condition existing the world over. Never before have young
people been faced with such grave and major problems of readjustment, covering, as they
do, all aspects of living, civic, social as well as economic. The responsibilities and the
obligations ahead of our present generation of young people can not be regarded lightly.
Can we measure up to the job ahead?
Let us, in an attempt to answer that question, consider some of the results of our high
school training. Have we of the Faculty at Bulkeley given you all the necessary tools
with which to go forward? Have you assimilated all the necessary knowledge and wisdom
with which to battle the problems that will face you all too shortly? Have you developed,
within the classrooms of Bulkeley, or elsewhere, all the good sound judgment and reason-
ing ability you will need? Obviously the answer to all three questions is "No, only par-
tially." Our education must be considered as barely started, and we must live, develop
and grow, slowly but wisely gaining our intellectual stature.
Bulkeley has given you much, to be sure, as a start in your over-all growth. We hope
we have helped you in acquiring the fundamentals, the skills and techniques referred to
as the necessary tools. We hope we have developed in you a reasonable amount of ability
to think clearly and logically for yourselves, to critically analyze and weigh things in
the balance before forming opinions and judgments. We hope at Bulkeley you have
gained a steadfast loyalty to all the fine things our glorious democracy stands for and a
love of our American way of living. We profoundly hope that you have acquired many
of those important attitudes and intangibles without which life will be hard indeed. And
what are these intangibles? They are made up of those traits of a straight-forward per-
sonalityg a character which is unassailable at all times in every way, the possession of
high ideals in living and insistance upon displaying the top-most in ethical standards
through all you do or attempt to do. These are the really important things we hope you
have learned While at Bulkeley. Much of what you have memorized will leave you 3 these
intangibles, never, if they have been once made a part of you.
And so, Class of '48, as you join the ranks of other graduating classes, we at Bulkeley
will hold you in mind as one grand class of boys. You have done much to carry on the
splendid tradition of our school. We, in turn, have tried to make your high school days
interesting and happy ones as well as profitable to you. We have faith in you. We expect
you now to go forth as men-young men, capable, loyal and true to Bulkeley ideals. We
expect, furthermore, that you will face your future with a determined desire to do your
level best, that you will excel as many a Bulkeley graduate has before you, and that you
will reflect nothing but credit and honor on your home, your school, your church and your
city. Briefly, be real Bulkeley men. Best of luck to you all.

SENIOR CLASS l-IISTORY
Along with the month of September, 1944, came the future seniors of
the class of 1948. It was a noteworthy occasion not only for us but for
the school, since it ushered in a new headmaster, Mr. Herbert H. Archi-
We were proud indeed, mightily so, when the full realization of our new
position in life dawned upon us, but it was not long before the upper
classmen and Mr. Peck proved to us how wrong we were.
It was with bursting pride that, when the football season was over, we
could point to several of our own class members on the great state cham-
pionship team of 1944.
The class officers for our initial year were William Burke, Presidentg
Raymond Middleton, Vice-Presidentg James Finch, Secretary, and David
In Mr. Ballantinels Latin class we learned to our dismay that "Ponies"
are not always little horses. In between Mr. Pierce's frequent band trips
we glimpsed a little geometry. Part of the class worked in the "Sweat
Box", while the remainder crossed their fingers awaiting a new sophomore
As sophomores we chose Harold Shumway, Presidentg William Burke,
Vice-Presidentg and Dennis Foley completed the slate as Secretary-
By our third year we were prominent in all activities, Whether in the
academic, social, or athletic fields of interest. Although overshadowed
by the seniors we were still able to look down with contempt at the lowly
freshmen and sophomores.
Bill Burke was once again brought forth to lead the class in its diverse
activities, and he was ably supported by Jack Sheedy as Vice-Presidentg
Robert Carver, Secretary, and Charles Dyer, Treasurer.
The big event in our lives at this time was the much discussed Junior-
Prom. Under the capable guidance of the Dance Program Committee and
faculty advisors, our "Prom" was one of the biggest successes ever at-
tained at Bulkeley-an elaborate dinner-dance held at the Norwich Inn.
The members of the class proved themselves to be capable of the under-
taking of such an extraordinary social event.
Now we are embarking on our final year at Bulkeley School. We start-
ed the year off by electing as Class President, Jack Sheedy. William
Burke was once again in the political spotlight as Vice-Presidentg as were
Robert Carver and Charles Dyer as Class Secretary and Treasurer re-
As rulers supreme of the school, next to the Masters we are told, we
are viewing with awe the rapidly approaching graduation day. With our
leave-taking we shall pass on to the Class of '49 the leadership and re-
sponsibility which is the duty of each senior.

ALDRICH, ALFRED G.
"Al" takes his place at the
head of the senior class not only
alphabetically, but scholastical-
ly, as he is one of the top stu-
dents. He is known for his intra-
mural activities and his work at
the "Snack Shack". "Al" plans
to enlist in the Marines for a
while, after which he intends to
go into business for himself.
"Mike" is another of Bulke-
ley's outdoor men, noted for his
hunting and fishing. He spends
most of his time at his father's
shop as a disc jockey, playing
all the latest records. "Mike's"
ambition is to be an electrician,
and in addition run a record
shop, carrying on in his father's
BARRETT, WILLIAM E.
Here is the fellow so often
seen leading the cheers at the
football games and breaking the
tape at the track meets. "Bill"
is another live-wire, liked by
everyone. He has a flair for
drawing, and it is his ambition
to return to Bulkeley after col-
lege and teach in the mechanical
BEEBE. A. JAMES
"Squint" is one of those fel-
lows who is always. around and
is noted for his ability in card
playing. A good baseball player
and a superior student, "Jim"
has well represented the com-
munity from which he comes,
Niantic. Although he is unde-
cided as to a career, "Jim" in-
tends to enter college, and we're
sure that his carefree manner
will always carry him through.
Noted for his calm, easy-going
personality, his basketball abil-
ity, and the fine job he did as
President of the Student Coun-
cil, "Hubie" in addition, is a
top student. His prowess in math
and subjects connected with it
have led him to select aeronau-
tical engineering as his field of
"Pete" is a quiet reserved fel-
low, who enjoys the finer arts
of life, especially poetry and se-
rious music. Also he is quite an
author and poet in his own right.
"Pete" intends to go to college,
and his ambition is to write
"The Great American Novel".
It won't surprise us to see your
name upon the best-seller list,
"Ed" turned in a beautiful
job at center on the football
team this year, his athletic a-
bility and easy-to-get-along'-with
nature have won him many
friends. "Ed" seems to like trav-
el, being a veteran Montrealer
of three years standing, and
therefore it doesn't seem strange
that he anticipates a military
career following college.
"Dave" is another math shark
in the senior class, and he's a
swell guy, even though he does
come from Niantic. A clear
thinker and a good baseball
player, "Dave" has left an im-
pression both in the classroom
and on the diamond. He proposes
to become an engineer, training

"What happened to the Cardi-
"Bill" is about the ideal sen-
ior, being a topnotch athlete in
the three major sports as well
as finding success in the class-
room. His popularity is revealed
in the fact that he has been
either class president or vice-
president during his four years
of school. Whatever field he
chooses, we know success will be
CAHE Y, CHARLES
"Brit" is the fellow whose
witty remarks. produce "lighter
moments" in all of his classes.
He is well-liked, good-natured,
and seems to take everything in
his stride. "Charley" has taken
a commercial course in prepara-
tion for a business career. Best
of luck, "Brit".
"Rudy" came to Bulkeley in
his Junior year and easily fit-
ted into our school life. Besides
being one of Mr. Pierceisy de-
pendable musicians, "Rudy" has
made a host of friends among
the student body and faculty.
Although he is one of our quiet-
er members, we know we shall
hear more of him in later life.
"Boog" is a respected and
of the class. He is active in
sports and has exhibited fine
leadership as co-captain of this
year's football "Bob's"
ambition is to be ajgpoach, and
we firmly believe that he posses.-
ses all the necessary qualifica-
tions to attain this goal.
"Cast" is a rabid baseball
fan, and is a walking informa-
tion bureau on Cardinal statis-
tics. He has a lot of school spirit,
and hardly ever misses an ath-
letic event. John is another one
whose future is doubtful, but
after leaving Bulkeley he plans
to spend a while in some branch
of the Armed Forces.
CHANDLER. ROBERT A.
"Bob" is a cheerful fellow
with a good sense of humor. He
has been an active cross-country
runner, a firm supporter of
school activities,, and we hear
that he is also quite a photog-
rapher. "Bob" proposes to follow
in his father's footsteps, becom-
ing' a successful dentist, and re-
turning to New London to car-
ry on a practice.
CHAPIN. ROGER F.
"Chape", who hails from Ni-
antic, sports a quiet, reserved,
intelligent personality, and has
shown marked interest in draw-
ing and photography. "Chape"
is one of those fellows you can't
help liking. His interest outside
school has always been in out-
door life, therefore it is not sur-
prising that "Chape" intends to
go West and make forestry his
"Dick" is a good athlete, a
swell sport, and an all-round
fellow. He is also quite a clari-

opinion that he will make a fine

who has had charge of the purse
strings of the class for the last

perseverance and understanding,
he should make a good doctor.
"Norm" is a friendly, good-
natured fellow who never has a
bad word for anybody. He's the
type of person that you can't
help but like, and has taken an

dition to doing a fine job as fea-
ture editor of the "Harpoon",
"Norm" intends to go to college,
looking forwerd to a career in
the business world.
ELKIN. ROBERT J.
A good-natured, studious fel-
low, "Bob" has always exhibited
a lot of school spirit, especially
in connection with the musical
activities. His ambition is to be

fill this desire in the field of
pharmacy. With his mental abil-
ity and fine personality, we have
no doubt but that "Elk" will suc-

in his school work. He is the
quiet type, but those who know

three trips there with the

FRANKLIN. GREELEY W.,
"Will" is the "Benny Good-
man" of the senior class, and his
position in the band will be hard
to fill when he is graduated. He
is appreciated by his classmates
because of his likeable nature
and "will" to get ahead. He
plans to become a "big'-name-
musician", and he has certainly
gotten off to a good start in this
"Charlie" is a tall, rangy sen-
ior, who is a bit on the quiet side.
We hear that he's quite a base-
ball fan, and also enjoys photog-
raphy. Scholastically he's noted
for his fondness of social studies,
especially history. "Charlie" has
often mentioned radio as a pos-
sible career, but has not made
any definite decisions yet.
"Joe" is a likeable, husky in-
dividual who has provided a
goodly number of laughs in the
classroom with his amusing re-
marks. He hasn't had too much
time for extra-curricular work,
but he has been active in the
Projection Club. "Joe" feels at
this time that he would like to
be a doctor, and we hope that he
will reach this ambitious goal.
GUIMONT. ROY A.
"Ler0y's" fondness for the
"Star Bar" and his sense of im-
agination when it comes to
writing have distinguished him
from the rest of the members of
the class. His work on the "Har-
poon" and his proficiency in the
foreign languages are worthy
of mention here. "Roy" is look-
ing forward to an engineering
career, and we're sure that he

HAGAR. GEORGE MICHAEL
"Geor e" is one of Bulkeley's
'night owls, noted for his driving
Uh and affiliations with the
band and glee club. Very oblig-
ing, he is always ready to lend
a hand in anything connected
with school life. Manifesting a
tendency to lean towards the
sciences, "George" hopes to find
success in the field of medicine.
Good luck, "George".
HALL. RICHARD C.
"Hall" is a boon to Bulkeley
and certainly a loss to Fitch
from which he migrated to us
this year. Renowned for his
musical ability, the impish glint
of his eyes contrasts with his
conservativeness of m a n n e r.
"Dick" loves to hunt and trap
and anticipates a career as a
ranger or forester.
"Mike" is a rollicking, happy-
go-lucky fellow who's noted for
his ability to have a good time
no matter where he is or what
the situation. After Bulkeley,
he hopes to go to Business Col-
lege to prepare for a career as
an auditor. Keep up the high

"Jim" is very popular, and
displayed real ability' on the
gridiron this year. He is re-
knowned for his interest at
Fitch and his enthusiasm for
the Dodgers. Naturally enough,
"Jim's" associations, with ath-
letics have influenced him in
selecting an athletic career with
an eye toward a position on the
Here is a fellow, although
small in stature, is large of
heart. "George" is always ready
to flash his smile or to tell one
of his tall tales. He is well
known for his bowling abilities
and also rounds out his extra-
curricular activities by support-
ing the band in its jaunts.
Believe it or not, "Larry" is.
the only member of the Hendel
family in the class of '48, He is
noted for his Plymouth and
would like a permanent parking
space in front of Bulkeley. "Lar-
ry" plans to study accounting
after Bulkeley. Who knows,
maybe he'll invent a simple in-
come tax form? He has our best
of wishes for success.
"Herl" is a smiling Irishman
with plenty of vim, vigor and
vitality. These qualities have
been displayed on the gridiron
and in other activities. "Herl's"
final destination will probably
be California, but in the mean-
time he hopes to take up engi-
neering at Notre Dame.
HILL. LAURENCE M.
One of the more quiet mem-
bers of the class, "Laurie" is
also one of our best students.
Despite his extensive band ac-
tivities, he has taken part in sev-
eral other fields of school life.
His calm efficiency and level
head have won for him the re-
spect of his classmates. "Laurie"
has his eye on a social service
career, and we can't think of
anyone better qualified.
Meet one of the members of
this year's fine cross country
team, who has also distinguished
himself in the classroom. "John-
ny" is a dyed-in-the-wool outdoor
man, who likes to hunt, fish,
and trap. Right now, his future
is uncertain, but whatever his
choice may' be, we're sure that
his road to success. will be an
"Flash" migrated from Tech
to Bulkeley this year and easily
fitted himself into the student
body. He seems to be good-na-
tured, although we don't know
him too well as much of his time
is consumed by an after-school
job. Following Bulkeley "Flash"
intends to enter a school of
mechanics to prepare for work
in that field.
"Bill" has done a swell job as
Assistant Circulation Manager
on the Whaler this year, along
with "D, J.", his inseparable
buddie and companion. Although
he has a little trouble getting to
school on the dot of 8:25, he
nevertheless is full of life and
energy when he does get there,
and seems to take everything in
his stride. You ought not to
have any difficulties in life,
l'Bill", with your wit and vitality.

McCULLEY. DONALD JOHN
"Mac" hails from Montville
where he has established quite a
social reputation for himself. He
comes and goes in a very quiet
manner, and would do justice to
any foreign diplomat. "Mac"

the opposite sex, but his ambi-
tion in life is to become a mem-

"Monk" is a small, yet power-
ful fellow, who did a fine job at
the guard positions of this year's
football team. We've heard a
good deal about "Monk's" ex-
ploits on "Tarney's" and the "V.
F. W." basketball teams, and in
intramural sports at Bulkeley.
Although "Monk" isn't certain
yet, as to what he plans to do
after school, it will probably be
in some phase of the business
field. Good luck "Monk".

that he'll make good.

"Pete" hasn't definitely de-
cided what career to pursue, but
in whatever field he ch'ooses, we
know he'll reach the top.
"Ray" is one of our best ath-
letes. He sparkles on the court,
diamond, and gridiron, and al-
though he's no "man mountain
he's got plenty of spirit. His
popularity is evidenced in the
fact that he's been an officer in
both the Alpha and Beta Hi-Y's,
and is'co-captain of this year's

"Whistling John" is. noted for
just what the adjective implies
nor does he lack in vocal expres-
sion either. "Choo-Choo" also
likes mathematics, dancing, dra-
matics, and athletics. Possessed
of a natural humor and an alert
mind "Choo-Choo" should make
a fine engineer, his career choice.
VAN NATTA, JAMES M.
"Dutch" is an easy going, big-
hearted senior, whose only dis-
like on earth seems to be the
Brooklyn Dodgers. A friendly
winning smile, and a steadfast-
ness of purpose, as was evidenc-
ed by his work as manager of
the football team, should help
him succeed in whatever field of
endeavor he selects.
Noted for the energy he be-
stows upon the bass drum and
his associations with Connecti-
cut College, "Web" is a well-
liked member of the senior class.
He possesses a friendly spirit,
and is a fine supporter of the
school's activities. Good luck,
"Bob", in your Navy' career.
"Jack" is a live-wire noted for
his musical and basketball abil-
ity. He has demonstrated the
former of these qualities in lo-
cal dance bands, and the latter
on the intramural court and with
"Fergie's Clippers". "Kink's"
ambition is to be a millionaire,
and he hopes to accomplish this
goal in the newspaper field.
WILCOX. ROBERT E.
Noted for his journalistic
abilities, "Bob" is also a re-
nowned "Cohanzite". He is an
ardent sports enthusiast and
participant, and is associated
with many school activities. His
easy going way has won him
many friends, and should prove
to be an asset in future endeav-
ors. "Bob's" ambition is to be-
come an author and salesman,
,and we know he'll write and al-
so be one of the "best sellers".
"Stretch" has shown a keen
interest toward science, especial-
ly aeronautics. He is a member
of the Air Scouts, quite level-
headed, and manages to "keep
both feet on the ground".
"Stretch" is interested in pol-
itics, being a member of the Po-
litical Science Club, and this fact
may help determine his future,
which is at the time undecided.

A FRIENDLY CLASS
This pledge I offer: never shall descend
A shadow to make dim what we have done.
Between our minds unhindered there shall run
An understanding that no words shall lend.
In effortless communion we shall blend
Our hopes, our hidden thoughts, and one by one
Shall rise complete the dreams we have begun:
This is the troth I plight you, friend to friend.
And it may be, some thought 'of long ago,
Finding itself reborn as from a flame,
Shall pierce impassioned through and write its name
For one clear hour where all the world may know,-
As in an old, old garden there may fall
The shadow of a rose upon the wall.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
A new scientific theory has been evolved in which it is thought that if one could surpass the speed of
light, one could see events that happened many years ago. If that is so, we might go backwards at a
speed greater than that of light and see into the future. I wonder what the class of '48 will be doing in
1975. Well, let's take a look.
Ah, there's New London! It looks like Joe Siragusa is trying to sell Chapin a copy of the N. L. Day,
but he says that he has already read about Kyrazis setting up the first cosmic-ray power plant on Mars
with the help of Slater and Small. Dyer, coming from his private pool parlor, points out Tracey's latest
scoop, the solution of which was uncovered by Chief of Police Shepherd and Sergeants Oldroyd and Dotts.
Around the corner is "Shumway's Shady Shrimp Shop", bought at an auction from Kosakow, and fi-
nanced by the Filippetti-Franklyn Friendly Finance Company QD. Foley and Freymueller silent part-
nersl . In order to meet the payments, the corners of the shop have been rented out to the Mountzoures
Banana Company, Wyllie-Wood Funeral Directors-"Boxes tailored with hot and cold running worms",
"Palmer's Paradise" specializing in cocoanut milk and apple juice, and Laurie's Lingerie-which has
just received this fashion note: "They are wearing the same thing in brassieres this year."
People are still talking about the recent city-wide election of the Bulkeley Janitorial Staff. Herlihy
and Webber threaten to wash John Winthrop's autograph off the windows in Mr. Smolenski's room if
they aren't reelected. There seems to have been a few other changes too. O'Mara is physical ed. director,
and assists Stevens in coaching basketball and football. When Thayer isn't leading the Bulkeley Band,
he plays nights with "Damic0's Dissolute Five" at Grillo's Danceland.
There's Burke, home from another successful season with the Football Yankees, and almost ready to
take advantage of the Sheedy Retirement Plan which includes a trip to "Hallisey's Hacienda" in the
southwest part of Brooklyn, two tickets for Aldrich's Broadway production, "Jefferson", starring Benson
and Johlg a large bottle of Lawton's Little Liver Pills, and S50 a month for life after his eightieth birth-
day. The benefits of this plan were evolved by Petersen, the mental genius, who later informed Hill
that if he ate "Synodi's Spaghetti" until he was ninety, he would live to a ripe old age.
Word has come in over the Terry Teletype-"We give you a run for your money"-that Shafner is
filibustering again in the Senate on W. R. Foley's proposal that the government subsidize the Wilcox-
Elion Foundation for the Earthly Relief of Gravitation, by putting Saturn on the opposite side of our
orbit. E. Perry, our delegate to the World Congress, at which Van Natta has the peanut concession,
thinks it might cause an inter-planetary war.
One of the latest commercial accomplishments was putting luminous dots on dice by J. O'Connor and
Hendel so that shady characters wouldn't have to give up the sport. These are sold exclusively by Nian-
tic's only department store, Beebe-Kivlin Kr Company, whose suave traveling salesman, Trainor, has
finally succeeded in selling ice boxes to the Eskimos. While there he met Banas who had left the Water-
ford Barbers' Union because Treasurer P. Perry wouldn't give him permission to cut prices. To get
even he persuaded Staub to fly him to the Arctic where he painted red stripes on the North Pole. This
caused an international incident, and Foreign Minister Novitch, rushing back from Moscow, found Cahey
appealing to Justices Ramus and Blais of the Supreme Court to declare the "Wells Buttonhole Bill"
Ryan and Castagna have been appointed city sanitary engineers by Mayor Finch, and succeed Guimont
and Parker who were promoted to strawbosses by City Manager Forader. The city was honored recently
by a visit from Governor Bellefleur accompanied by Carver, his chauffeur. He came to find out why
Health Commissioner Deveau wouldn't fill in Winthrop's Cove. All he received for his trouble was a
headache that left him only after buying a double dose of "Kaplan's Cranium Pacifier" from Elkin, the
apothecary. Movies were taken by Chandler, sent to New York on Young's atom-powered yacht invented
by Professor Blodgett, where they will be developed by Barrett, Hume, and Co.-"High class business
in the dark." From there it is televised by Muller to "Hagar's Booze Barrel" where Sawicki and Hansen
are searching for pins to raise havoc at Strom's Burlesque.
It looks like the old "berg" hasn't changed a bit, except for a few new establishments like C. O. O'Con-
nor's Cannery, Kavarnos and Rice-importers of Hungarian Goulashg and Holt, Hall, Kr Co.-specialists
in "bust surveying".
What's happening? Everything is blurring! Oh, we're running out of atomic energy! Well, now that
we know what's in store, we can sit back and rest assured that the Class of '48 has quite a future still ahead

With a spirit almost equal to that of the forty-niners of a century ago,
we, the class of forty-nine set out on a bright September morn of 1945
to seek our high school education. How well we remember that first day!
We soon grew accustomed to the dark corridors, tough exams and Mr.
Peck's verbal barrages. We surprised the upperclassmen by bravely and
daringly partaking in all the school activities.
We had no sooner become a part of Bulkeley when we launched a vigor-
ous campaign to elect our class officers. We chose for President, Robert

Upon the first day of our sophomore year we were all suddenly stricken

with his fine system of education, which we came to like. Our political
life brought forward the election of Robert McPhail as President: George
Olsen, Vice-Presidentg Richard Lena, Treasurerg and Leon Pierfederici,
It was during this year that we discovered our members were no longer
to be used as dummies on the football team, but were now beginning to
show their talents.
Those of us who have survived the first two years of hard labor are
now proud Juniors. To lead us through this important year we chose

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
Bulkeley opened her doors for us in 1946. We were scorned by the
sophomores, ignored by the juniors, and unnoticed by the seniors. We
came from many different schools but soon forgot our grade school rival-
ries and became one large unit.
We personally became aware of the accuracy of Mr. Canty's pitching
arm, and how Mr. Ballantine combined humor and Latin for an extra-
ordinary study of the Roman language.
We were capably represented in sports at Bulkeley by those with ath-
letic abilities, and politics entered the picture almost as soon as we were
settled. Class officers and Student Council representatives had to be
elected, so we chose Donald O'Mara, President 9 Norman McPhail, Vice-
Presidentg and Clifford Carpentier, Secretary.
We stand today, more than one hundred strong. Although forced to
eat with the freshmen, we maintain our dignity. We had entered our
second year with the confidence of a year's experience, but we were soon
relieved of it by Mr. Ray Reed, who showed us all the deficiencies in our

On September 3, 1947, we, the Class of 1951, entered "Freshman Hall"
confidently looking forward to new adventures and experiences, and proud
to be students in the school of our choice.
We are attempting to uphold the honor and traditions of Bulkeley by
participating in clubs, sports, and other activities. There are about one
hundred and twenty-five students in the Freshman Class, the largest since
the beginning of World War II.
Already an outstanding achievement of the class was the selection of the
name for the new school paper. It was named the "Harpoon".
We are confidently looking forward to our next three years in Bulke-
ley, and through our own efforts and the aid of our teachers, we hope to
be a credit to our school and uphold its high standards. We hope that
our future years in Bulkeley will be as happy as was our Freshman year.
For our class officers we elected Richard Lindquist, President, Richard
Morgan, Vice-President, Eugene King, Secretary 3 and Eugene Brown,
In the athletic field some of our members were on the football squad and
we hope to produce some more of the high calibre basketball and baseball
teams which represent the Freshman class.

BULKELEY SCHOOL ATHLETIC FIELD, INCORPORATED
The presentation of Mercer Field to Bulkeley School in 1928 necessitated a very definite and perma-
nent arrangement regarding such important matters as incorporation, management of construction and
improvements, permanent supervision of the field, and last but not least the custody of the Athletic
Funds derived from school games and the future leasing of the field to New London clubs. Mr. Mercer,
the generous donor of the field, suggested that it would be appropriate as well as advantageous to name
the acting president and former presidents of the Alumni Association as Incorporators of Bulkeley
School Athletic Field. This suggestion was heartily endorsed by both alumni and students. These
excellent men who had been so successful in promoting the interest of their alma mater in the past and
the present, of course, would not and did not demur in this new appointment. And so, the following
esteemed graduates of the school became the illustrious incorporators of Bulkeley's new Athletic Field:
Cornelius C. Costello Cdeceasedj, Alfred Ligourie fdeceasedl, Morris Lubchansky, Thomas E. Troland,
and Thomas S. McGinley.
The next step in the organization was the selection of a Board of Directors. The above named incor-
porators by virtue of their office were the nucleus of a Board of Directors which was increased by the
appointment of four additional members to include the following-all good men and true-J. P. T. Arm-
strong, Arthur H. Shurts, Samuel Prentis, and Homer K. Underwood. Thus it worked out that the real
ownership of Mercer Field was vested in the Alumni.
In providing for the future management of the field and for the handling and keeping of accounts, it
seemed a wise and more convenient plan for the Board, henceforth, to underwrite all the athletics of the
school in so far as receipts and expenditures were concerned. In pursuance of this policy the Directors
elected Samuel M. Prentis as Graduate Manager of Athletics. Needless to say Mr. Prentis was a most
popular choice for this position. He is an ardent Bulkeley fan and his interest in sports, dramatics and
all other student activities kept him in close touch with the undergraduates.
In 1938, however, nature interferred in the form of the September hurricane with the result that prop-
erty damage and cancellation of some games at the field taxed the limited resources of the corporation
the limit. By 1940 there was a considerable debt and trustees of the school decided to combine all ath-
letics at Bulkeley with the operation of the field.
Consequently the board appointed John K. Balentine as faculty manager of athletics and extended him
broad powers in an effort to return to a sounder financial basis. With excellent cooperation from the
trustees, faculty and students Mr. Balentine slowly developed a program that has proved even more
successful than anticipated and the Bulkeley Athletic Association is today quite a business in itself.
Privileges of the field have been extended to professional and semi-professional teams. The climax
being reached in 1947 on the signing of a contract with the New London Raiders of the Colonial League.
The field is now equipped with a modern flood-lighting system and the original seating capacity of 1,200
has been increased three-fold.
There still remain many opportunities for improvement, but the Bulkeley Athletic Association has
come a. long way since 1940 and the Trustees, along with Mr. Balentine, are determined that progress will
continue at a brisk pace.
Thus through the foresight and generosity of Mr. Mercer and by the planning and work of capable
officials, Bulkeley School is the proud owner of an athletic plant worthy of its well-coached teams.

EASTERN CONNECTICUT CONFERENCE
THE HOWARD-SCHWARTING TROPHY
Dedicated to the first boy from Bulkeley and Chapman Tech to give his life for his
country in the Second World War. . .
This trophy was placed in competition between Bulkeley and Chapman Tech in 1942,
with the team winning the most of ten games to receive permanent possession. Since
that date it has never left Bulkeley School, and, by virtue of the 1947 football team's
victory over Chapman Tech, the trophy becomes the permanent possession of the school.

Coach Bill O'Brie1t
Bulkeley's 1947 football team did not prove as formi-
dable as those of recent years, but it did turn in a credit-
able performance by winning five of their nine game
schedule which was one of the toughest in the state. This
team, Captained by Bill Burke and Bob Carver, gave Bul-
keley her fifth consecutive Conference championship and
retired the Howard-Schwarting Memorial Trophy, which
has been in competition between Bulkeley and Chapman
Tech since 1942.
The Tigers opened their season with an impressive 26-0
victory over Windham in the first grid meeting of these
two schools since 1944. Held scoreless in the first period,
the Bengals began to roll in the second stanza, with Bill
Burke climaxing a land-air drive by scoring from the four-
yard line. An attempted placement was wide.
A poor punt by Windham cost the Thread City aggrega-
tion siX points, as Bill Burke tagged end George Scacciafer-
ro with a long pass. "Sketch" went the distance to the
double stripes and scored stand-
ing up. A second placement at-
In the final minutes of the first
half Bill Burke shot a twenty-
yard aerial to Jack Sheedy, who
raced 45 yards to score. With
a third placement going wide the
first half ended with Bulkeley
Bulkeley took the opening kick-
off from Windham and marched
fifty yards to the ten yard line,
where Bob Stevens climaxed the
drive by scoring on a ten yard
quarterback sneak. A fourth
placement attempt was fruitless.
With the game in its final min-
utes, substitute end Phil Lee nabbed Windham back Paul Grif-
fin in the end zone to score a safety, making the final score 26-0.
Stonington offered Bulkeley some first class resistance before
yielding to the Tigers 6-0, in a night game at Mercer field.
Bulkeley's lone tally came in the second period when Co-Cap-
tain Bill Burke recovered a Stonington fumble on the 25 yard
line. Bob McPhail picked up nine yards on an end around play
and Bob Stevens made it a first down by advancing to the ten
yard line. Bill Burke smashed to the two, and Si Shumway tal-
lied on a line plunge for what proved to be the winning score.
A planned placement failed due to a bad pass from center.
Fine play along the line held the Bears in check time and again,
Bill Burke turned in a great performance, both offensively and
defensively as he stopped two Stonington touchdown runs with

first defeat as the Elm City Steamrollers aveng-

The Bengals gave fans a faint glimmer of hope
in the second period when Bill Burke tagged
George Scacciaferro with a 35 yard pass. "Sketch"
made a beautiful catch and raced to the end zone
to bring the score to 12-6, the closest Bulkeley
Hillhouse roared back with a pair of touch-
downs in the remaining two quarters as they bot-
tled Bulkeley's offense in all phases. For Bulke-
ley, Bill Burke and George Scacciaferro played
top flight ball in a losing cause.
For their next encounter the Tigers traveled to
Hartford, where they received their second
straight defeat at the hands of Hartford Public,
18-0. This marked the first Capitol City victory
over Bulkeley since 1940. JOHN K. BALENTINE
Try as they might. the Tigers never entered
the end zone, though on several occasions they stood in the shadow of the goal posts.
Brilliant quarterbacking by Arnold Muller and some beautiful Burke-to-Olsen passes al-
most changed the outcome. Other Tiger standouts were George Scacciaferro, John Man-
avas, and Dick Wade.
New Britian outclassed Bulkeley in all departments as they turned a ball game into a
rout. The Golden Hurricane really took a toll as they scored in every period to roll up
a 50-0 score, one of the worst defeats in the history of the school.
In this encounter, end George Scacciaferro found himself in the fullback slot and turn-
ed in a creditable performance, though the Hardware City Colossals proved to be more
than even "Sketch" could handle. John Manavas stood out along the line as he played
his usually great game. The Tigers found themselves seriously handicapped by the loss
of Co-Captains Bill Burke and Bob Carver, who saw limited service.
Returning to Conference competition the Tigers entered the Fitch game as "under-
dog"' for the first time in the history of the rivalry. However, the charges of Bill
O'Brien had a different outlook on the situation, and they captured their third Con-
ference win, 13-0.
Held scoreless in the opening period, the Tigers found the mark in the second, as
fullback Lefty Eldridge scored from the two after a determined drive by Bulkeley.
In the third period Jim Hansen intercepted a Fitch pass on the 38 yard line to set up
Bulkeley's second touchdown. With Hansen and Burke running the ball it was brought
to the one yard line, from which Bill Burke scored. Jack Sheedy converted to end the
In the fourth period Fitch found itself within the five yard line on two occasions, but
a stubborn Tiger line never let them pass. Bill Burke and Jim Hansen were standouts.
Then came Ansonia! With big Vin Drake and speedy Al Webb in the Lavender back-
field it seemed that Bulkeley was doomed, but last year's stinging defeat had to be

avenged, and that after-
noon the Tigers wrote a
brilliant page in the ath-
letic history of Bulkeley.
Early in the first period
it looked as though Bulke-
ley was going to be over-
run when Al Webb raced
53 yards for a touchdown.
Webb's attempted conver-
sion was blocked, but that
seemed to make little dif-
ference as Ansonia moved
deep into Bulkeley terri-
tory time and again.
In the third period a
Drake-to-Webb pass was
intercepted by Jim Hansen
on the 35 yard line. Bill
Burke plunged for 11 yards
and then passed to Jack
Sheedy who went to the
Ansonia 34. There the Lav-
ender squad held the Ti-

the four yard line, and Bob Stevens picked up a first down on the two. Jack Sheedy then
scored on a reverse, and toed the extra point to win the ball game 7-6.
Outstanding play by the entire team made this great victory possible. The Tigers bot-
tled up Vin Drake to the extent that he completed 3 of 18 passes. Bill Burke, Jack Sheedy
and Horace Kosakow played particularly fine ball.
With the Conference championship at stake, the Tigers met their hometown rivals,
Chapman Tech, on Armistice Day. This was an unusually high scoring game as the Tigers
came out on top 20-14.
Early in the first period Tony Ramus blocked a Tech punt on the 31. Jim Hansen and
Bill Burke advanced the ball to the 12, where a penalty against Tech put the ball on the
one yard line. Bill Burke tallied on a plunge and Jack Sheedy converted.
Hardly had the fans settled back when Tony Ramus again blocked a punt on the 37.
A penalty against Bulkeley moved it back to the 47, where Bill Burke tagged George
Scacciaferro with a long pass for another touchdown.
Chapman Tech retaliated with a touchdown to close the first period with the score at
In the second period Tech's Don Rossi dropped back to punt, but Tony Ramus charged
through the line to hurry the kick and it sailed out of bounds on the 48. Bill Burke carried
it to the 31, and Bob McPhail carried it to the 20. Jack Sheedy advanced to the 12 and
Bill Burke tallied. The extra point attempt was no good.
Tech scored once again, but that was the end, for the Tigers were once more victorious
over their greatest rival. Bill Burke played a great game as he proved to be the Huskies'
nemesis for the third year, but it was Tony Ramus who took the honors as he played one
of the finest defensive games ever seen on Mercer Field.

Bulkeley's 1947 baseball team was not as good as pre-sea-
son thinkers would have it, but it did turn in the admirable
record of 9 wins in 13 games, ending its Eastern Connecticut
Conference slate with 7 wins to take second place in the
The Tigers opened their schedule by defeating Alumni,
9-2, behind stellar pitching by Tom Daniels who scattered six
hits while fanning 14 batters. Dick Ballestrini was the big
gun in the attack as he smashed a tremendous triple and a
340 foot homer.
Billard fell to the five hit pitching of John Bosko as Bulke-
ley won its second game, 11-2. A five run rally, led by George
Pugsley and Chet Jennings with a double and single respec-
tively put the game on ice for the Orange and Black.

stein led the attack with a triple, double, and single, while
Dick Ballestrini smashed a four bagger. Bosko gave up four
hits While striking out ten,
Chapman Tech turned in a Conference upset as they hand-
ed the Tigers their first defeat, 4-1, in a five and one-half inn-
ing affair. Eddie Funk twirled masterful ball for the Tech-
nicians as he gave up four hits and stopped Captain Jim Car-
ver's phenomenal streak of safeties in 16 consecutive games.
John Bosko gave up his first game in three starts.
The charges of Joe Silva returned to the win column via
a 2-1 victory over Stonington. The game proved to be a pitch-
er's duel, with Tom Daniels getting the better of Ernie
C I J sep! A. Silva ,
mm O L Ozanne as he gave up 3 hits and struck out ten.

pitched a beautiful game for Bulkeley but he was the victim of erratic support. Dick
Ballestrini collected 3 for 3 to lead the Tiger attack.
Bulkeley's hopes were raised as John Bosko twirled masterful ball to give the Tigers
a 5-2 win over Stonington. The Tiger moundsman allowed only six hits along the route
while he successfully throttled the Bears' attack. Captain Jim Carver led the offense
with two singles that sent three men home.
Norwich suffered its first Conference defeat as Tom Daniels pitched Bulkeley to a
3-2 Win over the Champs. Daniels gave up five hits and fanned 10. Chet Jennings bang-

five hits and fanned ten.
Eight Bulkeley errors gave Windham a 15-7 victory over Bulkeley as Tom Daniels was
tagged for 14 hits by the Whippets. A desperate rally by Bulkeley almost won the game
for them as the determined Bengals scored five runs in the last two innings.

of 17-2. For Bulkeley Dick Ballestrini was the standout as he smashed two homers which
brought in seven runs. John Bosko allowed 7 hits while striking out 9.

The 1946-47 version of the Bulkeley basketball team was one of the finest squads in the
history of the school. It won 16 of 17 regular season games and represented Bulkeley in
the State Tournament. Captained by veteran guard John Bosko, the team characterized
itself by high quality basketball and record breaking performances.
Opening their campaign, the Tigers traveled to Fitch, where they handed the Redbirds
a 59-13 trouncing. The Tanagers proved to be no match for the superior Bulkeley quintet,
which scored at Will. Jim Carver and Dick Ballestrini took scoring honors with 13 and 12
New Haven Hillhouse bowed to Bulkeley in a closely contested game in the Tigers
initial home game. The defending State and New England Champs battled the Bengals
until the last minute, but the charges of Bill O'Brien ended on the long end of a 34-31 count.
Bud Monroe was high scorer with 14 points, while Captain John Bosko played a spectacular
offensive and defensive game. A display of ball freezing in the final minutes of play
brought a capacity crowd to their feet.
Gaining their third straight triumph, the Tigers downed a star studded Alumni team,
41-35. A first half scoring spree, led by Tom Daniels, proved to be decisive. Daniels con-
nected seven times for a high score of 15 points.
A highly rated Norwich squad went home licking its wounds as Bulkeley took its fourth
straight game, 44-29. The Acads took a 6-5 lead in the first period, but the Tigers came
roaring back in the second and third periods to rout the Wildcats. Tom Daniels was high
scorer with 11 points, while Jim Carver, John Bosko and Dick Ballestrini played superb
A fine Stonington squad joined the ranks of Bulkeley's victims as they bowed, 65-45.
The 20 point margin of victory is not a true indication of the contest, since both teams
played top-flight ball from start to finish. The all-around ability of the Bengals proved
to be the main factor, as they used their speed and height to every advantage. Bud Mon-
roe, George Pugsley, and Jim Carver formed the offensive attack with 15, 11, and 12 points
respectively. John Bosko, Dick Ballestrini and Tom Daniels were Bulkeley's defensive
aces. Charlie Shea kept Stonington in the ball game with 24 points.
Bulkeley traveled to Windham in quest of their fourth conference victory, and were
almost upset by a scrappy Thread City team. From the opening minute, the Whippets
held the upper hand as they connected with set shots from all angles. With two minutes
left to play, Tom Daniels popped a free throw and tied the game, 42-all. Seconds later,
another free throw by Daniels put Bulkeley in front. The ace forward then added a set
shot, and George Pugsley tallied an anti-climatical free throw to make the final score
46-42. Tom Daniels and Jim Carver were high scorers with 14 and 11 points, respectively.
Chapman Tech offered the Bengals little opposition as they fell before the Bengal attack,
52-32. Dick Ballestrini took scoring honors with 11 points, while Coach O'Brien used 15
players during the game. Tony Ramus turned in a fine performance as a relief guard.
In their next encounter, the Tigers traveled to West Point and scored one of the greatest
triumphs in the annals of Bulkeley athletics by defeating the West Point Plebes, 40-35.
The Military Academy yearlings held every advantage over the charges of Bill O'Brien,
but the Tigers overcame these, and fought all the way to win.
Dick Ballestrini and Jim Carver tallied 13 and 12 points each for scoring honors, while
each man on the squad played top flight ball to add more laurels to their record.
Fitch fell to Bulkeley as the Tigers returned to Conference
competition. Dick Ballestrini netted 15 points, while Bud Mon-
roe and Bob Sullivan added eight each to the final score, 55-30.
Norwich gave Bulkeley no trouble as the Tigers added an-
other victim to their long list. Dick Ballestrini was once again
high scorer, tallying 19 points. The final score was 55-30.
A new school scoring record resulted from Putnam Tech's
journey to the Tiger's lair. The Technicians were completely
outclassed, as the Orange and Black bowled them over to the
tune of 88-45. George Pugsley was high scorer with 15 points,
while Ballestrini, Monroe, Daniels, Carver and Sullivan hit the
double figures in breaking a nine year old scoring record.
Windham, which had once nearly upset the Tigers, came to
New London with high hopes, only to wind up on the short
end of a 76-53 score. Bud Monroe, Dick Ballestrini, and Tom
Daniels tallied 16, 15, and 13 points, as the Tigers took their
Traveling to Bridgeport, the Tigers received their only regu-
lar season defeat at the hands of Bridgeport Bassick, 36-28.
Bulkeley was unable to adjust itself to the Lion's court, find-
ing scoring difficult. Tom Daniels tallied 7 points for Bulkeley
JOHN Bosco while Lefty Hustek netted 15 for the winners. ,
Returning to their home court, the Tigers nipped an alert
Marianapolis quintet, 43-37. The visitors outscored the Bengals for three quarters, but
a third period drive, sparked by Tom Daniels, gave Bulkeley the victory. Daniels and Bud
Monroe were high scorers with 12 and 11 points apiece.
The Tigers regained their old form as they defeated the Stonington Bears, 44-33. Dick
Ballestrini and Bud Monroe led the Bulkeley attack as they split 26 points evenly. The
backcourt men effectively bottled up the Stonington scoring attack.
Playing their final conference game, Bulkeley defeated Chapman Tech, 74-30, and ended

their conference schedule with a record of 10 wins against no losses. A dozen players
tallied in this victory, while Bud Monroe netted 12 points to be high scorer.
Making their final appearance of the regular season, the Tigers took revenge on Bridge-
port Bassick, the only team to defeat them. Bulkeley pasted the Lions to the tune of
61-46, to even things. Dick Ballestrini led the scoring parade with 12 points, while Dan-
iels, Monroe, Pugsley and Carver hit the double figures. Captain John Bosko played his
usual great offensive and defensive game.
Entering the playdowns of the State Tournament, Bulkeley defeated a speedy New
Britain quintet, 48-40. The underdog Golden Hurricane made it a nip and tuck battle
until the final gun. Dick Ballestrini played superb ball, as he controlled the backboards
and spearheaded the victory with 22 points.
Meeting West Haven in the quarter-finals, Bulkeley gave spectators a display of great
tournament play as they defeated the Blue and White, 67-42, representing a new scoring
record for the tourney. The contest was never in question, as the Orange and Black blanked
their opponents, 17-0, in the first quarter. Ballestrini was once again high scorer, with 1.6
points, while Bud Monroe and Jim Carver tallied 15 and 14 respectively.
With high hopes for the State Championship, the Tigers entered the semi-final round,
only to be beaten by New Haven Hillhouse, 36-32. The Bengals were not in the best shape
for this encounter, and were forced to play without the services of George Pugsley, who
was injured in the West Haven game. Despite the handicaps, Bulkeley was in the ball
game all the way, and a rally in the closing minutes almost upset the Hillsiders, who went
' ' f B lk 1 ith
on to win the State title. Tom Daniels and Bud Monroe were high men or u e ey w
11 and 9 points each.
Thus, another great chapter in the history of Bulkeley athletics came to a close. This
was the finale for some of the finest athletes to come out of Bulkeley. Players who grad-
uated are: Captain Jo
and George Pugsley.
Dick Ballestrini and Bud Monroe were named to the All-Conference team. Ballestrini
had the distinct honor of making first team All-State.
Tony Ramus and Bill Burke, two guards, were named Co-Captains for the 1947-48

1948 THE WHALER
Bulkeley's 1947 Track team turned in the
usual season of Coach Mal Greenaway's charges
by proving itself better than it was rated and
providing a number of upsets and surprises.
The squad was captained by veteran sprinters
Owen Tooker and Bill Whelan.
The first appearance of the Tigers turned
out to be an unfortunate surprise as the Ben-
gals came up with a total of two points in the
State Indoor Championships. Co - Captain
Tooker and George Terry placed fourth in the
40-yard dash and mile, respectively, to account
for Bulkeley's only score.
Traveling to Storrs for the Connecticut Re-
lays the Tigers turned in a creditable perform-
ance against some of the finest relay teams in
the State. Coach Mal Greenaway entered only
a two mile team, composed of John Kelley, Ray
Peterson, Nick Korean and George Terry.
The boys took third place, giving them two
A 71-28 trouncing of Stonington made the
initial dual meet of the Bengals a roaring suc-
cess. The Tigers captured first place in all
running events and four of six field events. Si
Shumway took individual honors with 11
points, while other Bulkeley scorers were:
Co-Captains Tooker and Whelan, Barrett, Ol-
sen, G. Terry, F. Terry, R. Peterson, H. Peter-
son, Korean, Kelley, Leandri, Small, Young and Shafner.
Malcolm G. Greenaway
A heavily favored Tech squad had to fight all the way to overcome a
scrappy Bulkeley outfit. Big Dick Shargus' 15 points were the main fac-
tor in the Huskies' 53yQ-4553 victory. For Bulkeley, Oo-Captain Tooker
and George Terry came up with 10 points each for scoring honors. Other
Orange and Black point manufacturers were: Co-Captain Whelan, Bar-
rett, Kelley, Small, Shumway, Leandri, Shafner and Korean.
The Tigers gained some consolation for this defeat by topping Chap-
man Tech, though bowing to Norwich, in a tri-angular meet at Norwich.
George Terry paced the Tiger attack as he came up with firsts in the mile
and 880 for ten points. John Kelly took second in each event, just a few
yards behind Terry, to follow with eight points. Other scorers were: Co-
Captains Tooker and Whelan, Shumway, Olsen, Peterson, Pugsley, Ko-
rean, and Shafner.
George Terry and John Kelley staged a one-two finish in the mile as
Bulkeley took 7th place in the outdoor State Championship meet. The
Bulkeley star broke the tape in 4:5-34.2, with his mate following closely
behind. Co-Captain Owen Tooker captured fifth in the 100 yard dash
while the Relay team took fourth place in the 880 yard event.
Bulkeley's 41 point bid for the Eastern Connecticut title fell just a lit-
tle short of Norwich's score as the Tigers were forced to settle for second
place. Co-Captain Owen Tooker and George Terry took firsts in two
events to tie for Bulkeley's high scorers with 10 points each. Other Bul-
keley scorers were: Barrett, Kelley, R. Peterson, Small, Young, Shumway
Bulkeley sent All-Staters George Terry and John Kelley to the New
England State meet, where Terry ran one of the best times of his career
as he finished the mile in 4:35. However, with the competition excep-
tionally keen, this was only good for a fourth place and two points, though
it did give the Bulkeley ace a place on the All-New England track team.
This was the last season for Co-Captains Tooker and Whelan, Ray
Peterson and Dick Leandri. This will leave an array of lettermen for the
1948 season, which promises to be highly successful.
George Terry was named Captain for the 1948 season.
The student manager was Francis Minault.

The 1947 version of Bulkeley hill-and-dale men proved to be another
of Coach Mal Greenaway's championship squads. The Bengal harriers
gained their second successive Conference title and captured third place
in the State Meet, thus marking Coach Greenaway's third year as mentor
with some of the greatest achievements in the history of Cross Country
at Bulkeley School.
The Coast Guard Academy J. V.'s fell victim to the Orange and Black
for the second time in as many years, as the Tigers made their 1947 debut.
Co-Captain George Terry led the pack to the tape, while Korean, Jeffer-
son, Stanners, Peterson and Chandler scored decisive points to edge the
The Eastern Connecticut Conference championship was decided in a
dual meet between Bulkeley and Norwich, as the other members of the
circuit failed to field teams. Co-Captain George Terry repeated last
year's performance by leading the field home in record time. The Tiger
ace negotiated the distance in the remarkable time of 11:58, taking 7
seconds off his old record. John Kelley, Nick Korean, Bob Stanners and
Harry Peterson added the final points to insure victory. The final score
was, Bulkeley 26, Norwich 29.
A strong Hartford Public High team had the distinction of ending a
two year string of victories, as they defeated the Tigers, 25-30, on their
home course. The Capitol City Harriers yielded the initial places to Ter-
ry and Kelley, but pushed five men through in vital places to defeat
the Bulkeley stalwarts. Bob Stanners, Nick Korean and John Holt were
the Bulkeley scorers in a losing cause.
With high hopes for State Championship honors, the Tigers traveled to
Wesleyan College for the State Meet. The balanced Hartford Public
squad annexed the Title, with Bulkeley being edged out for second place
by Greenwich High. George Terry again dominated the field as he walk-
ed away with individual honors by leading the pack to the tape in the
remarkable time of 13:14. Little John Kelley placed fourth, while Bill
Crandall, Nick Korean and Bob Stanners were the other Tiger point
Co-Captain George Terry and John Kelley were selected to represent
Bulkeley in the New England Championship meet, held in Boston. Terry
made school history as he took individual honors in record-breaking time.
The Tiger ace negotiated the distance in 12 :23.9, smashing 32 seconds off

the old record. Weather conditions made this feat especially notable, since
ice forced Terry to cover 2.6 miles rather than the usual 2.5 miles. Despite
an injured leg, John Kelley covered the distance and finished 28th.
For their final meet the Tigers traveled to Orange, New Jersey, to par-
ticipate in the Eastern Interscholastic Cross Country Meet. This marked
the first time in the history of the school that an Orange and Black team
has been sent to this meet, in which some of the best high-school teams
from the Eastern seaboard participate.
Despite the large number of schools involved, this meet turned out to
be a poorly handled affair. Due to poor starting conditions, All-New Eng-
land George Terry failed to finish first for the first time in two years.
The Tiger ace was forced to settle for third place.
Other Bulkeley entrants were: John Kelley, Bob Stanners, Francis
Terry, Bill Crandall, and Nick Korean. As a team, the Tigers finished
19th amongst the best teams from the Atlantic Coast.
This was the final season for the following runners, who have had the
distinction of being memlbers of the finest teams to wear Orange and
Black Cross Country uniforms: Co-Captains George Terry and Jim Finch,
and, Harry Peterson, John Holt, Mark Jefferson and Bob Chandler.
Co-Captain George Terry, John Kelley, Bob Stanners and Nick Korean
were selected for the All-Conference Cross Country team.
John Kelley and Bob Stanners were elected Co-Captains for the 1948
season, which promises to be a highly successful year.
Students managers were Mike Jacey and Joe Tracey.

FRESHMAN BASKETBALL 1946-47
The Freshman basketball team completed a fairly successful season,
emerging victorious in nine of their fourteen contests. Each player had
an almost-equal chance for participation, exemplified by the fact that
every player received numerals.
Our first game was played at Fitch where We lost after a hard fight,
29-17. Next We met Callahan's on our own court and defeated them, 21-
17. The following game Was played at Windham in Willimantic Where
We were trounced, 50-25. Tech fell to us at the "Y" by a 26-21 count, and
Cohanzie was hit 42-15 on our court. We next encountered Callahan's
again and defeated them, 40-23. Avenging our defeat on their court, we
defeated Windham on our floor, 35-15. Acme A. C. fell after a closely
contested game, 36-27, as did Tech at home, 23-12. Hodges Square was
the victor in our next contest, 30-27, and in our last scheduled game we
conquered the N.F.A. Frosh 31-29. In a post-season game We defeated
the Grammar School All-Stars, 20-14.
At a meeting held after the close of the season, Mick Ballestrini was
elected Captain. The student managers were Lohman, Wachter and

FRESHMAN BASEBALL 1947
The 1947 Freshman baseball team, coached by Al Clark, a former Bul-
keley star, played a schedule of eight games and came up with a record of
four wins and four losses for a .500 record.
After losing to Norwich, 10-4, the Frosh smashed Jennings, 17-0, as
George Maginnis pitched a no-hitter. Harbor fell to the yearlings in a
slugfest, 23-16, but once again Norwich topped the little Bengals, 1-0,
Jordan School fell victim to Bulkeley, 6-2, but the Groton Boys Club
defeated us, 5-2. Niantic fell to us, 7-5, and the boys from Quaker Hill
made our final game a victory by bowing 8-4.
The team collected a total of 57 base hits in 8 games while allowing the
opposition only 29.

THE BULKELEY GLEE CLUB
The Glee Club resumed practice this fall
with a large representation of newcomers.
Although for the most part inexperienced at
the start of the season, the group has proved
to be very successful.
Besides taking part in several band concerts and the Minstrel, selected
members of the Glee Club participated in the All-New England Chorus at
the New England Music Festival. Bulkeley was also represented at the
All-State Chorus held at W.M.I.

1948 marks the twentieth year of the organization of the Bulkeley
School Band. As usual the band contributed an important part to the
football games last fall. Many of its members will take part in the All-
New England Festival to be held this Spring in South Portand, Maine.
The band had a very successful season last year, making its name known
throughout New England. Most of its members also attended the Inter-
national Music Festival in Montreal last spring. This group, along with
10,000 other youths from the continent participating in week-long musical
activities. The entire band journeyed to South Hampton, New Hamp-

Under the able supervision of Mr. P. Henry Shay, the Spanish Club
entered its fourth year, and has hopes of great success. This club was
formed to further the interest in Spanish and to provide a social meeting
for its members.
The club officers are George Staub, President, William Hubbard, Vice-
President, Mark Jefferson, Secretary-Treasurerg and Van Keuran Jones,
A program committee was chosen to plan activities for the year, among
which was a very successful dance on November 22, 1947, and an assembly
for the entire student body in the spring. Many events for the remainder
of the year were planned, and a picnic or banquet will probably climax
This year the Bulkeley French Club, under the capable guidance of
Malcolm G. Greenaway, set out to maintain its record of being one of the
most active clubs in the school.
Regular meetings were held throughout the school year. The program
began with films shown for the benefit of club members. The club also
had four outstanding speakers. Rounding out the program was a dance
and a social gathering with the W.M.I. French Club.
The annual Montreal trip was a great success. The "Montrea1ers" en-
joyed five days of sightseeing in French-Canada. The New York Opera
trip afforded the group the opportunity of seeing cultural demonstrations
pertinent to France.
The officers consist of James Finch, President, Richard Lena, Vice-
President, Herman Goldstein, Secretaryg and Richard Davenport, Treas-

Masque and Gavel had the good fortune to obtain the services of Mr.
Ray T. Reed as faculty advisor for this year.

are planning to take part in the Connecticut Drama Festival this spring.
They also hope to once again sponsor a Potpourri among the four classes

Six o'clock on a cold February morning, the New London railroad sta-
tion buzzed with activity, the like of which had not been seen since
a year before when the "Montrealers" began their seventeenth annual
trip to the Canadian Metropolis.
Boston, the first stop on the itinerary, was reached in our private car
about 8:30 and we toured the city seeing the Old South Church, the
Massachusetts State Capitol, the Boston Tea Party Dock, and the Boston
We left Boston at noon and passed through Lowell, Massachusetts,
Nashua, Manchester, Concord, and Franklin, New Hampshire. The scen-
ery was an endless line of hills, valleys, and small streams under a blanket
of snow. While still enroute, we finished our box lunches and enjoyed a
floor show of Mr. Greenaway's prowess as a magician. About 9:30 that
evening the train made its terminal stop at Montreal, and we made a bee-
line for what we supposed was the last outpost of American civilization,
a "Child's Restaurant".
The following morning we had breakfast in the Hotel's "Champ Elysees'
Room", and proceeded to the Old French section of the city Where we saw
Windsor Station, Maissoneuve Square, the Church of Notre Dame, The
Bank of Montreal, the Hotel de Ville Q City Halll, the Chateau de Ramizay
a museum of the old relics of Montreal, and finally food "a la mode fran-
caise". From the "Carte du Jour" Cmenuj, we picked a roast beef din-
ner, which commenced with hors d'oeuvres and split pea soup and was top-
ped off with tea and "patisserie" CFrench Pastryl.
Sunday, the next morning, we went to St. Jacques Cathedral, which is
one-third the size and a replica of St. Peter's in Rome. After taking in all
of its immense beauty, we had dinner in the "Jacques Cartier Room" of
the Berkeley. The afternoon was spent across the mountain in Outre-
mont, where we visited the Miracle Shrine of St. Joseph's Oratory and an
excellent wax museum of Christian history. Returning on an ultra-mod-
ern trolley, we spent the rest of the afternoon walking around the main
That evening we went night-clubbing at the "Samovar", a Russian place
with a lot of atmosphere. We ordered hors d'oeuvres, borsch, roasted sal-
mon steak, tea and patisserie, which was digested with a delightful floor
show. Afterwards those who went bowling, to their amazement found
that only two balls were allowed and the pins were rubber. Following a
midnight snack and some bedroom "bull-sessions" we retired at an early
Getting up bright and early the next day, we ascended Mount Royal,
stopping briefly at the lookout, and finally reaching the toboggin slide
where milk and sandwiches awaited us. Because of recent weather con-
ditions, we were unable to use the slide and had to be content with sliding
back down the mountain.
After supper at the Windsor Hotel Coffee Shop, we went to the Cana-
dian National Railway Station to embark in our private car at 8:30 in the
evening. The return trip was made down the Connecticut River Valley
to afford the group a fine opportunity to see the other side of New Eng-
We arrived in New Haven at 7:30 the next morning, and after a short
breakfast boarded a train for the final destination of the trip, New Lon-
don and home.
The sun rising on the horizon brought to mind the thought that we left
New London with the dawn and returned with it.

THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The Leonard H. Bulkeley Chapter of the National Honor Society is a
relatively new club, having been installed at Bulkeley in 1945.
There are certain requirements for membership. To be admitted, a
boy must have an average of at least eighty-five per cent. However, he
must also fill the requirements of Character, Leadership, and Service to
the school, and must be active in extra-curricular activities.
The purpose of the National Honor Society is to give recognition to
those boys who have high scholastic standing and are able to meet the
other requirements. Also, since certain privileges go along with mem-
bership, it affords a means of raising the scholastic standings of the school
by offering a goal toward which the students must strive.
The officers this year are: Carl Small, Presidentg Harry Petersen,
Vice-President: and Robert Foley, Secretary-Treasurer,
THE STUDENT COUNCIL
The Student Council home-room representatives were elected by their
respective classes at the beginning of the year. This body in turn, elected
the following staff of officers to conduct student council activities for the
year: Hubert Bellefleur, Chairmang Joseph Siragusa, Vice-Chairmang
Robert Adams, Secretary, and David Blodgett, Treasurer.
The student council is elected by the student body to represent them,
and to submit their desires and suggestions to the administration in order
to increase if possible the tranquillity of the school-life of the students at
THE LEADER'S CLUB
The Leader's Club, one of the newer clubs at the school this year, was
organized under the guidance of Headmaster Archibald. The main pur-
pose of the Club this year is to better Bulkeley School.
The Club is composed of the president or captain of every club or organi-
zation in the school. At the first meeting, in the early part of the school
year, a slate of officers were presented and elected as follows: President,
Jack Sheedyg Vice-President, James Finch, and Secretary, Edward Perry.

POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB
The Political Science Club was organized this year to participate in forums with the
other high schools in Eastern Connecticut. In previous years only members of the U. S.
History and Economics classes were priviledged to attend these affairs. Now, in this
club, attendance is open to anyone in the school who is interested in representing Bulke-
ley in a forum.
Our method of preparation for a forum is as follows: when the topic is announced,
the club meets and conducts a discussion among its members to bring out as many as-
pects of it as possible. Notes are taken, augmented by further information gained in
research, and studies. On the appointed day, our platform speakers and their cortege
are well prepared to present and prove their position on the subject, and to interrogate
intelligently the opposition.
Through this club, valuable practical experience is gained in public speaking and
PHOTO CLUB "A"
After starting last year with little more than some spirit and ability, the Advanced
gholto Club is now a flourishing organization. We now have a well-equipped and stocked
The primary purpose is to spread knowledge of photography among the club members
and to present ample, economical opportunities to further abilities.
Club elections resulted in Robert A. Chandler, President, David Bell, Vice-Presidentg
William Barrett, Treasurer, and Freeman Odlum, Secretary.
Under the capable guidance of Mr. Greenaway, we are rapidly becoming a strong
link in the chain of Bulkeley's extra-curricular activities.
This club is open to all boys at Bulkeley who wish to learn more of the fundamentals
of art. We meet every Wednesday during activity' period.
The club officers are: William Barrett, President, William Rogoff, Vice-Presidentg
John Kelley, Secretary, and David Hi1l,, Treasurer. The program committee consists
of William Barrett, William Rogoff, Friske Chapin, and Freeman Odlum.
Among the activities of the Art Club are an annual dance in the gymnasium, dis-
cussion of various media and handling of it, lessons in figure drawing, color, per-
spective, landscape, portraits, instructional movies on art, visits to historical points
of interest in and around New London, and finally a picnic at Mitchell Woods.
The Commercial Club of Bulkeley School was organized this year for the purpose
of bringing together all the Commercial students. It is a club that is very active, having
various business men speak at the meetings every Wednesday, and visiting many bus-
iness establishments in town.
Mr. Cole is the advisor of the club. The officers are: Gus King, President, Richard
Filippetti, Vice-President, William Guimont, Treasurer, Alfred Aldrich, Secretary,
and a program committee consisting of Joseph Filippetti, Andrew Smolenski, and

THE PHOTGGRAPHY "B" CLUB
The Photography "B" Club, under the supervision of Mr. Fred Clark, was organized
to acquaint Bulkeley students with the fundamentals of photography.
The officers of the "B" club are: Richard Holt, Presidentg John Barnes, Vice-
Presidentg David Hendel, Secretaryg and Walter Krauth, Treasurer.
After a year in this up-and-coming club, a student may qualify for the Photography
"A" Club, a more advanced organization.
The Projection Club was founded by Mr. Philip B. Pasquale in 1945. At the end of
that semester Mr. Flood Reed became the advisor. In 1946 a constitution was drawn
up and the group began to take the aspects of a real club. The rule was made in 1947
that only those who are taking or have taken physics or senior science would be allowed
into the club. The duties of the members are to learn how to use the visual education
equipment and to use it at the request of the teachers or the clubs of the school.
J UNIOR WHALER ASSISTANTS
The Whaler Assistants are members of the Junior Class whose task it is to con-
tact the merchants of New London and vicinity to solicit advertisements for The
The financial success of our 1948 Whaler is, to a great extent, owing to the efficiency
of this group subscribing previous advertisers and securing many new ones to counter-
balance the high costs of printing and engraving.
WHALER ROOM CAPTAINS
The Whaler Room Captains collect installments on The Whaler from the students
of the three lower classes. It is up to them to secure the support of the student body,
which is the prime requisite of a successful yearbook.
We of the senior Whaler staff are deeply indebted to the room captains for their
untiring efforts in making this book successful.

The Harpoon Staff was organized for the purpose of establishing and publishing a
school paper. We selected the name Harpoon from among those submitted in a school-
wide contest. The main aim of the Staff is to get the paper into a position of not only
of schoolwork influence but statewide importance, too.
The members of the staff whose very important job was that of seeing that the
paper's first year of publication was a success are: Bruce Lane, Editor, Robert Wil-
cox and George Lord, Associate Editorsg Avrum Novitch, Business Managerg Francis
Baldwin, Circulation Managerg Richard Caulkins, Exchange Editor, Philip Perry,
News Editorg William Ely, Art Editor, and Norman Elion, Feature Editor.
The staff was fortunate in securing the services of Russell W. Harris as Faculty
advisor, and under his guidance, it is hoped that the Harpoon may become an insti-
tution at Bulkeley School.
VARSITY "B" CLUB
All Bulkeley lettermen are eligible for the Varsity B Club which meets weekly dur-
ing the Activity Period, The primary objective is to be acquainted with all phases of
athletics through the medium of motion pictures. Members of the Freshman Athletic
Club are frequently invited to join the B Club when outstanding films are available.
As a club project the B Club handles most of the management of the Thames Valley
Grammar School Basketball League which operates in the school gymnasium during
the winter months.
Although a nominating committee has been appointed, election of officers has been
postponed until later in the year. At present many of the club members are engaged in
football meetings on "B" Club meeting day and it was deemed advisable to delay elec-
tions until the close of the football season.
FRESHMAN ATHLETIC CLUB
The Freshman Athletic Club or "F-Club" has a membership of fifty-five boys.
The purpose of the club it to acquaint the membership with all types of sports in
season so that they may be better understood. and to interest the members in various
forms of individual recreation to promote health.
Weekly meetings are held in the school and qualified speakers are brought in to
talk on athletics, training, and recreation. Instructional movies as well as those of
outstanding teams in many sports form a large part of our program.
Our officers for the first half of the year are: Robert Sistare, Presidentg Edmund
Sitty, Vice-President, George Nocery, Treasurerg and Norman Swanson, Secretary.

class understood he asked a boy to tell the difference between "madame" and Hmademois-
Immediately the boy answered: "Monsieur".

tinators, led by Sholom CWolfgangJ Shaf-
ner and Bob CAgitatorJ Herlihy, seized,
took over, and generally absconded with,
Bulkeley Country Club.
The move came after Bulkeley's ruling
body, the Student Social Circle, refused to
put towels in the boy's room. Representa-
tives Novitch and Cahey said it might en-
courage boys to use water when they Wash-
ed their hands. Their motion was upheld
by Joe Siragusa and Jack Wells, perennial
politicians of Room 17. e
Carver and Kaplan, who established
their headquarters in the Freshman Hall
Boy's Room, issued the organizations first
public statement, in which they said:
"The New Order is here! You didn't
know that, did you? An era of chaos has
come to a close. We now, yea, now, that is,
embark on an era of confusion. You birds
better hadn't forget it. Put it in your note-
books. Don't forget those notes. Wonder-
Lushwelli has switched to Calvert Re-
serve because Calverts is milder.

TIGER TOUTERS TRIP
The faculty of .New London Bulkeley
plowed and ripped its way to fame as it
bowled over Notre Dame 92W to 0, in the
annual "Chalk Bowl" classic at Mercer
The boys in Green from South Bend
kicked off and left halfback Cole took the
pigskin on the deuce and galloped the
stretch to pay dirt. No sooner had the
crowd seated itself when Big Walt Peck
raced down the field to catch his own kick-
off and went over for six points.
The cheering section spurred by cheer-
leader Ella Kelly re-echoed the moan cheer
. . . "No-o-o-o!"
The Bulkeley band gave the crowd some
half time entertainment, and then dimin-
utive Mal Greenaway snagged a N. D. aer-
ial and romped 99 44f100 yards for a T. D.
Time and again Big Walt Peck plowed
through to stop All-American Luj ack. Once
when he knocked him down he was heard
to say, "Get up and I'll knock you down
With the game nearing the end of the
final quarter fullback E. E. O. bucked over
for what seemed to be six points, but the
T. D. was nullified when the referee dis-
covered he was carrying "The Immortal
Book" instead of a football. He played the
entire game as there was no alternate for
Even water boy Flood Reed and trainer
Pasquale took part in the scoring as Coach
O'Brien used every available man.
At the end of the game a poll of sports-
writers selected fullback Orcutt and right
end Peck for the All-American team.

BULKELEY ACES LEADING SCORERS
As the basketball season drew close to
the halfway mark, official scorers gave
fans a preview of who might end up on top
of the parade when the final goal is made.
It was no surprise to ardent fans that
their number one hero, Alan fRipJ Van
Winkle, currently tops the parade with 93
field goals and 34 fouls for a total of 220
points in the State wide circuit. Fans will
remember him as the forward that snowed
under Hillhouse High by racking up 56
points against Hi1lhouse's 23.
A player who shows great perspective is
Henry M. fMad, what else ?J Linz, lithe
guard on Ripper's squad. He has a total
of 100 points, representing 35 field goals
and 30 fouls.
Rumor has it that the New York Knick-
erbockers have made offers to Ripper re-
garding his plans for the future, but Rip
publicly stated that he will not consider any
offers at the present, except those coming
from the "better, more exclusive colleges."
