This year we approach a portrait of the second word "University". To supplement our young talents, we have turned to that most famous work of john Henry Cardinal Newman, The Idea of a University. Hardly could we convey the abundantly rich heritage of truth which is the Newman l h e of the Niagaran staff classic. It is, however,the humb e op this attempt, inadequate though it be, will enrich our that understanding of the ideal of university and of that reflection of the ideal which has been so much our life these few years, - N.U.

We of Niagara know ourselves to be most fortunate in having for leaders along the way in this search guides who not only know the truth, but even in our chaotic world make their way with fidelity to the ideals which they would assign for us.

As the date draws nearer more and more interest is being aroused concerning the his- tory of the University. The dream of an Irish Vicentian priest, Rev. john Lynch, C.M., to found a seminary was realized in 1856. His .original intention of locating his seminary in the Buffalo area was diverted to Niagara Falls because of the scenic attractions of the site and the tranquil- ity of the rural scene. ff The one hundred acre "Vedder farm" and two hundred acres sliced from the DeVeaux estate comprised the area, and the rude brick inn located on the farm became the residence of the seminarians who entered the first class in 1857. Thus was the embryonic structure of Niagara. We have only black and white sketches re- maining of the original home of the first Niagara students because of a fire which gut- ted this building in 1864. However, nine months later the students returned, and a 'Wh lem..

An Alumni Chapel was begun in 1874, but this too was destroyed by fire some twenty- four years later. The new structure which replaced the destroyed chapel emerged as the Alumni Hall of today. . As it progressed in age so too it progressed in learning until "Our Lady of Angels" be- came Niagara University in 1883. The original site grew slowly into the Niagara University of today. St. Vincent's Hall was constructed ,,.-gear H 'Q , ' 5 NN ,.

The Student Center became a reality in 1950. The pattern of continuous progress witnessed by the years has certainly not ceased. Con- temporary advancement is' everywhere evi- dent coupled with the feeling that the first ninety-eight years has only brought Niagara University -from childhood to adolescence, with a glorious manhood still before it.

HIGGINS, now approaching sixty years of service in God's Priesthood, is the oldest living son of St. Vincent dePaul in the world today. The briefest summary of his long and fruitful life would suggest that he might well have adopted as his motto the directive of the saintly founder of the Vincentian Fathers, "Let us love God, Gentleman: let us love God, but let it be with the sweat of our brows and the strength of our arms!" . The Civil War was yet a month away when Fr. Higgins was born, March 9, 1861. Niagara' Uni- versity and Fr. Higgins were "youngsters" in the same era. Six years after entering the Vincentian Commu- nity, Fr. Higgins was ordained on May 19, 1894. His first years were spent at St. John's College and Seminary in Brooklyn. There he was engaged in teaching and from 1896 to 1902 was treasurer of that institution. In 1906, after two successive periods of two years each as curate at St. Vincent's parish, Germantown, -and at the Immaculate Conception parish, German- town, Fr. Higgins began twenty-seven brilliant and beloved years as pastor of the latter parish. This period was signalized by a building program that must have been staggering in anticipation, one that was to be magnificent in realization. A Parish Hall, "the wonder of 1908", a "Lower Church" in 1911, a rectory in 1914, a convent capable of housing forty Sisters in 1922, an "Upper Church" with seating capacity of thirteen hundred in 1930, - these were among the factors that kept Fr. Higgins' ministry an active one. In 1933, at the age of seventy-two, when the thoughts of most people are turned toward retire- ment, Fr. Higgins came to Niagara as University Treasurer, in which capacity he was to serve for ten years. In twenty years at Niagara the genuine friendlin- ness, radiant happiness and abundant energy'of Fr. Higgins have occasioned his being called the "youngest person" on campus. Reverend Michael J. Higgins, C.M. Saint Vincent de Paul, founder of the Vincentian Fathers. When Fr. Higgins joined the Vincentians in 1888, this community of secular priests living a common life had been established in Germantown, Philadel- phia, for four decades. The "Little Company", as St. Vincent was wont to call his yearling com- munity, was founded at Paris in 1617. Vincent's life and his labors with this new community were such that he occupies a multiple place in history as the Universal Patron of Charity, the Father of Modern Social Service, Founder of the Daughters of Charity, defender of the Faith against the heresy of jansenism, founder of the modern seminary, - to mention but the major works in which he Was directly involved. Vincent's prudence and foresight were such that the Common Rule which he established for his young congregation has never been revised, a phenomenon unique in the history of religious communities of comparable age. The Community now numbers over 5000 persons living in 470 foundations spread throughout the entire world. Two centuries, however, were to elapse from their founding until, in 1816, the first Vincentians arrived in the United States to engage in preaching to the poor of the Louisiana Purchase Territory and in teaching future shep- herds of souls. The formation of the clergy of numerous dioceses, -- New York, Brooklyn, Phila- delphia in the East, and Denver, St. Louis and Los Angeles in the West, and many others - was placed in their hands. Three universities, Niaga.ra, St. john's and DePaul were to grow out of their zeal. Over fifty parishes, hospitals, prisons, homes for the aged and the young, as well as countless members of our armed forces, know the priestly ministrations of the sons of St. Vincent de Paul. Parish missions, novenas and retreats to the laity and reli.gious constitute a principal work of scores of the Priests of the Mission. Missionary posts in our own Southland, in Panama, and until very recently in China have for long been the scene of the zeal in action of many others. It was this same zeal which in 1856 found expres- sion in the writings of Niagara's founder, Fr. John J. Lynch, C.M.: "We have everything but the university, and we'll put that here," - the same zeal which brought to reality the dream of a Catholic institution of higher learning in Western New York. 1 UUR PRESIDENT VERY REVEREND FRANCIS L. MEADE CM HIS YEAR our president celebrates his twenty-fifth year at Niagara. Coming here from the Chinese missions in 1928 Father Meade served in many important university posts duri-ng the next nineteen years and in 1947 was appointed president. He brought to this ofhce a broad educational background, real insight into the problems of university administration and the goodwill of his many friends gained through years of service to educa- tional and civic groups. As president, Father Meade has been honored by honorary degrees from several universities and has been elected to important posts in national educational organizations. During his twenty-five years here he has been a friend and counsellor to two generations of Niagarans and has won a place of esteem in the hearts of all.

I 1 The Class of 1953 HE CLASS OF '53 is composed of students from each of the five colleges of the University. They have a full range of major interest Helds but have reached over the course of four years a unity based on friendship, a common philosophy of life and on sharing this experience that is Niagara. They have worked together on big projects like their junior Prom and have cooperated to meet minor emergencies when the checks were late. They have given unconsciously to one another a balance of viewpoint that may be gained only through associating with and learning respect for those who are studying in different fields.

Slowly the present members of Sigma Alpha Sigma walked forward to choose their candidates for Niagara's undergradu- ate honor society. The impressive tap- pingceremony of Sigma Alpha Sigma had begun. The competition for this honorary group is keen and usually the selec- tion of the candidates takes up a major part of the school year and presents a knotty problem for the members of this group. Scholarship, athletic ability,.and participation in the social life of the school are the requirements of this organization. Sigma aims to promote more acti- vity by its membership in these fields and to increase student participation and interest in the various aspects of student life. This select group of the senior class is a goal for which every upper classman strives. It offers recognition and honor to the outstanding leaders of the student body. The newly inducted Sigma mem- bers leave the auditorium. Marguerite M Bergeron Mary Lou Consldine Richard F.

These pages sponsored by the Luxury Lounge, Third and Ferry Streets, Niagara Falls. ' Student Council One of the most important organizations here or on any other campus is the Student Council. Its significance and importance lie mainly in the fact that it is the voice of the student body, providing a direct link to the administration, through the medium of repre- sentation. It is the democratic system on a somewhat smaller scale. Thus in brief this is the primary end of this body. But its opera- tions do not end here. Under the guidance of Rev. john J. McDon- nell, the Council moderator, it has been instrumental in bringing to Niagara outstanding men in the fields of Literature, Business, and Science to lecture on their respective endeavors, has formulated plans for the traditional Moving-Up-Day exercises, and has spon- sored the annual Freshman Welcome Dance, along with becoming a powerful force behind the drive for the building of "Radio Niagara."

N.S.A. is an association of student governments' to achieve these aims. Niagara's student council is represented in the N.S.A. by a Senior Delegate, john Cossentino, a junior Delegate, james Reardon, and by New York State vice-president Ed Lamb.

Under the direction of Mr. Louis Altieri, a well known figure in the music world, this aggregation has been achiev- ing wide acclaim throughout the area because of its fine performances given at various colleges during the year. Of special note is the band's treatment of the modern jazz classics, a talent that was brought forth in the "Accent on to the plaudits of an enthusiastic audience in attendance at the "Accent on jazz" concert in the Student Center. --. m- Everyone loves a parade.

' H on Jazz Tanlght With the presentation of the Spring Concert in the Student Center Auditorium, the Band concluded four months of hard work, the results of which will attest to that statement. e Appropriately titled, and enjoyable to listen to, "The Accent on Jazz" provided an opportunity for the group to display their prowess as they departed from the traditional and standard marches and settled down to some "hot licks" in an old fashioned "jam" session. With Mr. Altieri and john Kerwin wielding the baton, and john Cannaveno and jack Wright sup- plying some sweet rhythm the program swept along with the audience constantly voicing its approval from the out-set to the finish.

' With Lancer Hunt portraying the courageous More, jack Lavelle as the infamous Henry, Grace Dowling as Ann Boleyn and jim Crowley and Bob Nicol as the crafty con- spirators, Cromwell and Boleyn, the play represented the most ambitious and successful effort of the youthful dramatic group' to date.

It is not only the principals whose talents are displayed before the footlights for the audience to view who are important, but also those who work backstage constructing, directing, and counseling. These are the faces that are never seeng the names that never blazed in lights. Yet without them the triumphs of others would never be insured. To these faces without names we would like to dedicate this page. To all those whose hands fashioned the props and whose imaginations framed the scenes we say our thanks.

The group has achieved growing recognition throughout the area as a result of their many fine stage productions both in the serious and the comical veins. NEA x .445 Gl.l:'E CLUB 1 The advent of the new year brought the Uni- versity Glee Club a new moderator, and a more rigorous and exacting concert schedule than ever before. Under the guiding hands of Mr. Henry Zimmer, director of the group, and Father Austin Derrig C.M., moderator, the combined male and female chorouses attained new heights in their consistently fine concert work. Among the highlights of a very successful sea- son were the performances at D'Youville College in Buffalo, the joint concert with Nazareth College, Rochester, at the student center and public con- certs throughout the area. After rehearsal Father Derrig and Mr. Zimmer, choral director, lend their ears to the playing of Ed Smith, accompanist for the group. ..,,-n-ll mi -i +1 gi ini 11 A1 MIDNIGHT MINIA TURES The rolls. of paperand wire had disap- pearedg gone were the familiar backboards and bleachersg gone was the roar of the crowd.

Annually, representatives of Beta Chi Nu, together with faculty members, attend the conventions of the major nursing organizations. Money to finance these trips is raised by a common effort of the members. The sorority annually holds a banquet on the occasion of the formal installation of their officers and the mem- bers hear a speaker prominent in Nursing or a related field.

The Luke Grace Forensic Council, Niagara University's debating society, is now in its second year, its first full one since last year's reorganization. Under a new moderator, Rev. Kenneth F. Slattery, C. M., Ph.D., the society undertook a wider program, thus becoming a leader in the formation of a Western New York Debate League - a project which re- quired the society to hold a tournament of its own early in the year. ' All this was made possible mainly through the efficient chairmanship of Alex Cipriano who did outstanding work this year as team manager and secretary of the Society. Highlights of the season were tournaments atGeneseo, LeMoyne, and other New York schools, culminated by vic- tories over Fordham and Columbia in New York City. -""'I 23 7 ' 'i- ' "'f7!'?r, .

All these hectic weeks were finally brought to a close on the afternoon of October 20 as the Frosh took the measure of their sophomore brothers in the annual Liberation Day activi- ties, thus officially becoming a part of the University undergraduate body. .W F., a- 21' .. . ,.

From November 'til March the Eagles were surpassing old marks and setting new ones. It started and ended with one of Niagara's greatest shooting threats, Larry Costello. Against Panzer College Larry set a new standard of 34 points scored in a single game. In Memorial Auditorium against Canisius at the end of the season he broke former All-American Zeke Sinicola's one season record of 452 with a total of 465. Later during the NIT he pushed his total for the season to 510, becoming the first basketball player in Western New York to top 500 in a single season. The Eagles broke a few rules too. The basketball experts had Niagara tabbed for a "fair season." After all, they reasoned, you can't transform a losing team into a winning one comprised of the same personnel overnight. 'However, Coach john J. "Taps" Gallagher proved that he had been underestimated, and in fact that he had underestimated him- self, for as soon as the season got underway the Eagles began reaping the fruits of his labors. At the end of the season Mr. Gallagher had this to say concerning his players showing the high regard he held for them: "Deo gratias-I certainly am blessed by having a group of lion-hearted basketball players. They always give their all. They have profited greatly by the experience gained last year." 1953 was a year that saw the high-flying Purple Eagles complete a 22-6 season record, recover the Little Three crown, receive an invitation to the NIT, and saw Larry Costello named to the NIT All-Star team and receive All- American honorable mention. For the first time the Allie Seelbach Trophy was won by Niagara. The award is sym- bolic of upstate New York State basketball supremacy and the Eagles are the only Little Three team ever to hold it. Brockport State was first to feel the strength of the mighty Niagarans. The teachers were a game team but could not pace themselves against the fast-breaking Eagles. Frosh Coach Harry Condara stepped to the helm in Mr. Gallagher's absence as Niagara pilled up a phenomial 130 against Panzer's 73 By this time the Eagles were showing the stuff that was going to lead them to their second NIT bid in four years. In the third game of the season Toronto was surpassed with ease, 95-54. Then came the lirst 'big' game-wLaSalle College, -4. A E 'N' if Coach "Taps" Gallagher gives w 9 , gs 'W5 .-- instructions to Erias .and Ed- Larry Costello die Fleming during a time our. 1952 NIT champions and a ranking member in the basket- ball circle. Against the Explorers, Niagara played an admir- able all around game but lacked the experience and finesse possessed by the invading quintet. Costello, Gerry Kennedy and Ed Fleming combined for 61 points but were out- shadowed by the tremendous trio from Philadelphia - Tommy Gola, Fred Iechle and Norm Grekin who were able to boost LaSalle over NU 87-76. ' Bouncing back from the first defeat of the season the Eagles went on a win streak which included powerful Bowl- ing Green, LeMoyne, Springfield and Syracuse, 1952 holders of the Seelbach Trophey. The ten point 65-55 victory over Bowling Green was the first of a series of major victories. After BG, Niagara edged LeMoyne 70-67 in a game which aroused little interest or excitement at the Aud. Springfield surprised Student Center fans, but not Mr. Gallagher, with an aggressive and well-rounded squad which battled the Eagles on even terms during the first half. After intermission the Ridgemen were able to take the situation in hand and come through 67-53 winners. , The Sophomore sensations, Ed Fleming and Charlie Hoxie proved a thorn in the side of Syracuse with their out- standing control of the boards thus enabling the Eagles to trounce Bill Orange 65-45 for their seventh win in eight starts. At Toledo the Gallaghermen were forced to take the bitter with the sweet. The well regarded "Flip" Martin led the Rockets to a sorry 66-57 dumping of Niagara.

After the Yellow jackets came Loyola of Los Angeles. The west coasters had been suffering heavy losses on their eastern swing and Niagara proved to be no gentle host. The visitors were geared to a fast style but the Eagles stemmed the attack with ease, coming out on ,top 76-57. Then came the big question, can the Eagles take Bona- venture? It was Bona who had been picked to win the Little Three, take the Seelbach Trophey and probably go to a post season tourney while the Ridgemen were expected to be taking it easy, convalescing from the injuries of 51-52. But by this time the Eagles had been receiving notice as an out- standing defensive machine and it was that stellar defense with Fleming and Hoxie controlling the boards that beat St. Bonnies 51-46. Charlie continued as a scoring ace, leading NU over the University of Buffalo 57-46. He was also able to hold UB's scoring star, Jim Horne to eight points during the first three quarters before he went to the bench via the foul route. Horne collected 14 in the last period and finished the game with 22, a point less than I-Ioxie's 23. The reputation of the Lawrence Tech cagers filled the Student Center to overflowing two days in a row, Saturday, january 17 and Sunday, january 18. Because of extremely poor flying conditions, LIT was grounded in Detroit and could not make the game on Saturday as scheduled.

The Eagles came out on top by a slim margin 55-53, and were forced to come from behind in the final quarter to pull it out. Niagara battled uphill for most of the contest, some- times laboring under a 10 point disadvantage. Larry Costello paced the Ridgemen with 18 and Chuck Hoxie displayed tremendous defensive talent. He spotted big Werner Kellen f6'8"j four inches and held him to six field goals. Ahead loomed a crucial game with Canisius and NU cagers were anxious to avenge the two stinging defeats handed them by the Golden Domers last year. The Griifs went down 66-62 before a large Memorial Auditorium crowd. Before their 61-71 loss to Duquesne in Pittsburg, the Purple Eagles picked up two easy wins over Scranton Uni- versity 74-60 and john Carroll University 79-65. Scranton possessed a strong defensive machine but it crumbled in the face of balanced Niagara team work. The star of the game proved to be a Scranton Sophomore, joe Fitt, who scored 32 points on 13 fields goals and six free throws. It was a strong 26 point fourth period that gave the Eagles th ' 79-65 win over john Carroll. Once again big Chuck err Hoxie took scoring honors with his 22 point contribution. Bo Erias was next with 16 and Jerry Kennedy was right be- hind him with 15. The largest crowd of the season poured into the Duquesne G rdens to watch Dick Ricketts, jim Tucker and Company a crack' Niagara's eight game win streak. Rickets, 6'7" amassed 32 oints.

It was win number 16 in 19 starts for Niagara and the NIT in the same sentence. The following week Niagara figured in another upset, but this time the Eagles came out on the short end. The scene was Archbold Gym on Piety Hill and the feat was performed by Syracuse University. Mel Besdin was the star of the show garnering 31 points and displaying brilliant all-around ability. The Eagles would not let this defeat interfere with their hopes of a tournament bid as they went on to beat St. Bona- venture soundly 61-48. It was Bo Erias' 16 points that led the Eagles to the Little Three championship. Niagara had compiled an enviable record of 17 wins and four losses as the big event of the basketball season ap- proached - the New York Excursion. Niagara had jumped many hurdles during the season, each one higher than the last, but this was it - "Beat St. john's and we've got it made." Although determination was strong and spirits high, the Redmen handed "Taps" Gallagher's crew a close 60-56 decision. On the swing back from the Garden the Purple cagers ran into some stiff competition against Siena. The Eagles came out on top 88-81 only after giving their all. It will be a game long remembered in the annals of basketball history, running six overtimes. Ed Fleming set a record of playing 70 consecutive minutes in a single gameg a distinction that will not soon be taken away from him. Cornell U was next on the fabulous Niagara black list. The Ithaca hoopsters fell 57-47 on their home court. This time Charlie Hoxie led the scoring card with 17. The Red Raiders of Colgate journied from Hamilton only to meet a fate similar to their Big Three companions. The Raiders were expected to give NU a rough time but the Eagles, inspired by the sharp eye and stellar play of Ed Fleming, kept the situation well in hand dumping the visitors 86-67 for win number 20. Niagara rounded out the regular season by healing its final wound of the previous season with a 59-43 rout of arch rival Canisius College. The Eagles went into the National Invitation Tournament as a dark horse and almost did the trick! In competition against the top teams of the nation the Nia.gara University Ridgemen gave a superb and enviable account of themselves. In the first round the' Eagles met and defeated powerful Brigham Youn.g 82-76 in overtime after a hard fought battle. Both Hoxie f23j and Costello f25Q outscored All- American Joe Rickey f18j. Now with even higher hopes the "Cindeiella Team" tangled with mighty Seton Hall. The names of All-American Walt Dukes, 6'11", Arnie Ring, and Richie Regan demanded the greatest respect of the basketball empire, but to the Eagles "Honey" Russell's phenomenon was a team that could be beaten. Niagara went in as underdogs but were winners until the iinal minute when, with only two Niagara starters still on the court, Seton Hall clinched victory 82-76, but only after being fully extended. The season was over, it was in the books but the Niagara faithful were throwing- their hats into the air for their Eagles had battled on even terms with the best of them and had gained the respect of sports fans around the country.

The Eagles avenged one of their four losses of last year when they routed the Tor'onto YMCA by the score of 60-23 in the NU pool. 1 The third win -of the year for the Eagles was over highly- rated Cornell University, and was a very significant milestone on the way to the Niagara squad's first undefeated season. Ross McCarty lowered his record for the 100-yd. free-style when he defeated Cornell's ace sprinter Robinson Ord in 152.3 seconds. The 300-yd. medley relay record also fell as George Kouch, Dick Schmitt and Don Braasch churned to an easy victory in this event. In the first meet of two against the University of Toronto, Niagara chalked up an easy 51-32 win, but the second en- counter with Toronto proved to be the toughest meet of the season for NU. The meet went right down to the final relay which was won by Niagara. The final score of the contest was 47-37 in favor of NU. The mermen also swam two meets against the University of Western Ontario. The first encounter was won by the Er"les 55-27. For the second meeting of the two teams, the NU finmen traveled up to London, Ontario to beat Western by the score of 51-33. The Ohio University hopes for an undefeated season were smashed by the Niagarans who won nine out of a possible ten first places in a 57-27 rout. The Loyola University swimmers were the next prey for the high-riding Eagles as they went down to defeat 48-35. The Niagara mermen continued to show their power as they outclassed Albion College 55-29 for their tenth win of the season. Ross McCarty turned in the outstanding per- formance of the evening, breaking the National Intercollegi- ate record for the 120 yard individual medley by a full second. His time was 1:12.4. NU swamped Brockport State Teachers' College by a score of 52-32 in Brockport's home pool. In all, six pool records were broken by the Purple Eagles, two by McCarty, and one apiece by Kouch, Ware and Kineke. John smith W. V7kA X . In the final dual meet of the year, the Niagarans com- pletely outclassed the University of Buffalo by a lopsided 66-17 score. In the big event of the afternoon Coach Gager matched Ross McCarty against George Kouch in the 120 yard individual medley. McCarty lowered his own National Intercollegiate record from 1:12.4 to 1:11.7 as he touched out Kouch who turned in a 1:12.8 clocking. After the event, Kouch was awarded a trophy as retiring captain. The Niagara swimmers topped off their great season by winning the Buffalo Athletic trophy for the fourth year in a row. The NU team amassed a total of sixty points, twenty four more than the closest contender, Brockport State. The '52-'53 season was the best in the history of swim- ming at Niagara. It climaxed the rise of NU in the swimming world from a nonentity to a minor power and was a good prediction of things to come. Don McChesney perfecting his diving at a practice session.

First row, left to right: Leon Staskiewicz, managerg jerry Hatch, Pete Damick, Pete Bifaro, Captain George Hagan and John Moore. Second row: Victor Fischer, Mel Chambers, Baltico Erias, james McConnell and Edward Roth. The Niagara University harriers under Captain George Hagan and coach Everett Ockermann completed a successful season this year, compiling a 6 - 3 record against increasingly difhcult area competition. The ambling Eagles started with a 21 - 38 swamping of McMasters' runners on the Canadians' course, and made things look even more promising by nearly shutting out U. B. 19 - 40. But then came a 30 - 25 upset at the hands of an unheralded Ontario Aggies team, followed by a squeeking 30 - 27 loss to powerful Ontario when lead man Mel Chambers became sick during the race. The hill-and-dalers failed to get out of the rut as they finished fourth in the Canisius Invitational behind Buffalo State, Canisius, and the Ontario Aggies. They finished the season in a blaze of glory however, dumping U. B. again 22 - 35, upsetting Canisius College 28 - 29 on the strength of John Moore's brilliant spurt, out-snowshoeing Brockport State 23 - 32, and again edging a keyed-up Canisius crew 28 - 31. In the absence of graduated Al Zielonka the chore of leading the pack fell to Mel Chambers and Pete, Bifaro, both Sophomores. They received strong support from the consistent running of Captain George Hagan, and the unpredictable spurts of john Moore. Also instrumental in the team's success were old reliable Pete Damick, new-comer Vic Fischer,and rapidly-improving Ed Roth. 2 Mr. Everett E. Ockerman, Cross-Country coach.

Especially, we would like to thank our moderator, Reverend Joseph S. Breen C.M., for his contribution of the benefits of many years of experience and for the warm personal interest in us which made this task a real pleasure. We are grateful to Dan Solari for the patience and creative ability with which he handled our problemsg to Mr. Flynn who never was too busy to find a picture or answer a question, to Father Sommar for his kindness and interest. The class portraits are the result of the work of Zamsky Studios, Philadelphia and of Tom Lennon of Buffalo. The Bell Aircraft Corporation generously took for our use the new aerial views of the campus. The staff editors and members working day by day built the book, page by page, idea by idea. Nothing we can say can measure up to the cooperation that we have received, but our thank-you expresses a heartfelt gratitude. William R. Weckesser Editor The 1953 Niagaran
