These valiant ships, with their beauty of line and swift grace, be- came a symbol of enterprising, young America. This epoch with its own tales of triumph and loss marks the hey-day of American commerce in the latter part of the nineteenth century. It was a splendid culmination to the long story of sail-driven vessels and leaves to posterity a record of heroic men and memorable ships. Dedication To you, Miss Neilson, we dedicate this book. In doing so, we have many happy memories and grateful thoughts. You have been our guiding light, our inspiration, and our constant helper. As Freshmen, new and inexperienced in college, we unanimously chose you as our class adviser. Despite the many duties with which you were already burdened, you accepted us wholeheartedly. Freshmen need so much assistance, and you gave generously of your time and effort. We were poor little Sophomores who had gone astray, but you were there to lead the way. Would some of us have ever reached our present point in our voyage with- out your assistance? We know the answer is " Never! " Our Junior year came, and with it we were separated. The question of remaining unified was paramount in our minds. Seeking your admiration we worked together for the benefit of our class. In such a way you helped people going in different directions to continue to work as a unit. As Seniors, reaping the reward of four years of study, we bow and pay tribute to you, Miss Neilson. Thank you for every minute you have spent with us and for every hour you have spent worrying about us. You have shown us how we should live in a world of changing values. You have taught us to put our faith in God and in the " good life. " By your life of service to humanity you have encouraged us to aspire to such a noble calling. PROFESSOR ELIZABETH NEILSON " To give light to them that sit in darkness, to guide our feet in the way of peace. " Class Adviser ' s Message The " Clipper Ship " has completed its last voyage. To each member of this experi- enced crew, congratulations. You have all passed the many qualifications necessary to afford you the rating of a navigator. Your undergraduate professional duties have been completed. You are ready to leave the training ship. You will now await your assignment to take your place as the navigator of your own ship, as you embark upon new waters with every ex- pectation of bringing your ship to port safely at the end of each yearly excursion. Your work is just beginning. If you wish to remain as the navigator of your ship and soon become a captain, remember, " Life ' s greatest achievement is the continual re- making of yourself so that at last you know how to live. " Avoid following the pattern established by the mass and, as an individual leader, as a navigator in your community, lead others to higher levels desired by all true Americans and by God. i niPlPniMHii I.M1 [Uttlll PttMiknrxiiiiitfl DOCTOR DANIEL O ' LEARY " Build me straight, Worthy Master! Staunch and strong, a goodly vessel! That shall laugh at all disaster, And with wave and whirlwind wrestle! President ' s Message You are leaving us to enter what is perhaps the noblest of the pro- fessions and the finest of the arts, whose true rewards cannot be stored up in earthly banks. You will give to our youth in their impressionable years, the enduring truths by which they will live and die. To be a teacher is to be one of the company of the greatest of mankind. To be a good teacher is an art, " an art so great and so difficult to master that a man or woman can spend a long life at it without realizing much more than his limitations and mistakes and his distance from the ideal. " None deserve better of the nation than our teachers. None are more forgotten. Yet the joy of conquering ignorance, of bringing thought into the world, is itself sufficient reward. Recall how Dante greeted his old teacher, Brunetto Latini, when he met him in the Inferno, " M ' ise- gnate come l ' uomo s ' eterna " - " You taught me how man makes himself immortal. " Be this your goal in life and in your new profession. DEAN MARGUERITE GOURVILLE With me as pilot ye men control your anxieties, under my guidance let ship and crew run straight. ' " Dean ' s Message We are living in a day of ocean liners and of D-C-4 ' s that fly from continent to continent and yet you have chosen for the theme of your book, " The Clipper Ship Era. " Could it be that you are attempting to take us back in time? Could you be believing that there are still worlds to explore? Could it be that you are a little fearful of the great unknown as were the Skippers of the Clippers? If this is so, just remember that you are all vessels with fine lines, with tall masts and large sail ing areas. You were built for fast sailing as were all true Clipper Ships. Bon Voyage ! DOCTOR JAMES DUGAN Testimonial to Dr. James Dugan " Writing words of farewell is usually an unhappy task, but this tribute is not of that type; rather it is a happy duty for us of the Senior Class to put into words what we have felt in our hearts for the past four years. " We have always found in you a combination of fatherly understanding and strength of character that makes you truly a Christian Gentleman. We thank you for treating us as individuals and adults and for giving to us that feeling of equality that you have so generously bestowed on all through the fullness of your heart. " We of the Senior Class, who are so rightfully proud of Lowell as a college, are equally proud of you as our President, benefactor, and friend. If we are able to bring into our own lives and into our teaching some small part of the fine example you have set for all to follow, we shall indeed be thankful; for your manner and philosophy of life shall always remain as a silent tribute to you. " [8] PROFESSOR MARY O ' ROURKE Tribute to Professor Mary O ' Rourke After five years of service as head of the Language Arts Department at the State Teachers College in Lowell, Professor Mary O ' Rourke resigned in order to accept a more responsible position as Supervisor of Elementary Education for Massachusetts. Professor O ' Rourke is recognized as an authority in her field, and it is a great loss for Lowell Teachers College to have her go. The faculty and students content themselves with this thought, " The reward of duty is the power to fill another. " [9] DOCTOR CHARLES O. DALRYMPLE Tribute to Dr. Charles O. Dalrymple We will all miss the quiet wit, the calm advice, and the gentle understanding of Dr. Dalrymple. For many years he has served as professor of mathematics, physics, and science methods. Dr. Dalrymple actively practiced what he preached. In his classroom recog- nition was afforded every effort and an atmosphere of ease promoted student con- tributions. Our wish for Dr. Dalrymple is continued success and achievement. May he find happiness in the quiet, contemplative life of retirement.

New experiences, adjustments, and responsibil- ities lay ahead. How wonderful it was to guide our " little sisters and brothers " over a new road of experiences; and how im- portant we felt as we adorned our fingers with the beautiful class ring. Our social calendar was studded with many gay performances. The climax of these events occurred when our lovely Junior Promenade was held at the Music Hall in Winchester. Full of enthusiasm, we proceeded along the road to our professional training — the practice school. Adjustments were made, and achievement was our reward. Now, dear Seniors, as the portals of Lowell Teachers College begin to close, remember that after you are gone her echoing halls shall long resound this mes- sage: " If Wisdom ' s ways you wisely seek, Five things observe with care: To whom you speak, of whom you speak, And how, and when, and where. " [44] President Vice-President Sophomore Class Barbara Meagher Secretary Rosemary O ' Connor Treasurer Class Adviser . Professor Julian Roberts Elizabeth Gannon Jean Curtis The word " Sophomore " designates sec- ond-year class, and in Latin it means wise fools. At Lowell Teachers College the Class of ' 53 has made a definite impression upon both the faculty and students. Whether the impression has been favorable or other- wise is a debatable question. The one hundred and nineteen indi- viduals who compose this class are happy- go-lucky. They laugh, sing, and joke, but there is a serious side to their nature. Their loyalty is unsurpassed, as proven by the stirring tribute paid at the funeral of George A. Walsh, late member of the Class of ' 53. A memorial to him in the form of the George A. Walsh Memorial Scholar- ship Fund was initiated by his former classmates. Whatever the Sophomore Class does, it seems to do well. Their socials, whether serious or light in nature, result in success because of planning and preparation. On April 12 the Sophomores tendered a graduation farewell party to their big- sister class, the Class of ' 51. It was an im- pressive ceremony and every Sophomore pondered a moment to look forward to the day when they too will journey forth to make their mark in the world as future teachers. [45] Freshman Class President Vice-President Christine Derby Secretary Frederick Gleason Treasurer Class Adviser Professor Dominic Procopio Jane Yarnall John Warry On September fourteenth, 1950, we made our timorous debut at Lowell Teach- ers College. After a week of being con- fronted with unfamiliar faces and suffering through initiation, we became full-fledged freshmen. Our big-sister class helped us to feel that we were an active part of the student body. The many parties, dances, and sport events held at the college afforded us an opportunity to meet the upper-classmen and to make lasting friendships. We like it here and we are grateful to everyone who has helped us to become ac- climated. We will remember you, the Seniors, long after you have left our hal- lowed halls, because friendliness, generos- ity, and your fine example are lingering qualities. Thank you and good luck, the Class of ' 51 . [46] 7S - !

Everyone who has seen or heard the yearbook staff in action knows the hours and days of work it takes to compose, illus- trate, and publish such a book. The staff has worked as a unit to bring to the stu- dents and faculty a yearbook worthy of its name. Particular recognition must be given the Editor-in-Chief. The Knoll has been her chief concern all year. Special efforts were made this year to make the Knoll truly a yearbook of the college and not just a Senior classbook. To further this attempt each of the under- classes elected a Knoll representative. Each page of this book is a silent tribute to those who worked to make it possible. It reflects the cooperation, the willingness to help, and a sense of pride on the part of every member of the staff and every mem- ber of the Senior class. It is with deep satisfaction that they present the 1951 Knoll to Lowell Teachers College.

The purpose of the S.S.L. is to foster school and student activities, to maintain good government in the college, to culti- vate high ideals of conduct, and to prepare Women ' s Athletic Association Representative Nancy Sweet Men ' s Athletic Association Representative Sal Lapomi President of the Senior Class Claire Burke President of the Junior Class Ann Sinibaldi President of the Sophomore Class Barbara Meagher President of the Freshman Class Christine Derby Faculty Adviser Dean Marguerite Gourville the future teacher for effective service in the community. Each year the League sends representa- tives to the Eastern States Ass ' n. of Pro- fessional Schools for Teachers and the New England Teacher Preparation Ass ' n. Conferences, the purpose being to keep aware of the ever changing trends in edu- cation. [53] Women ' s Athletic Association President Vice-President Nancy Sweet Katherine McCarthy One of the most active Women ' s Ath- letic Associations in the state can be found at Lowell Teachers College. All freshman girls are automatically enrolled in this club, and from the first A. A. Reception they can feel the pride that comes from membership in a worthwhile organization. The members of the A. A. Board are chosen by the entire student body through democratic voting. This board, assisted by the girls who have qualified as coaches, oversees the school sporting events. A great variety of activities are offered by the A. A. Of the sports, field hockey and basketball are the most popular. In all of the games friendly competition can be found between the two student groups - Secretary Treasurer Marjorie Mason Barbara Broe Army and Navy. Much excitement is built up each year, as these honor teams accu- mulate points toward the coveted trophy, which is awarded to the winning group. The formal A. A. Banquet in May is the climactic event of the A. A. year. At this banquet recognition, in the form of numerals, letters, pins, and trophies, is given those people who have accumulated specified points during the year. This year interest in the sports program was intense and participation was high. The credit for this success may be given to the cooperative student body, the capable A. A. officers, and most of all, to the ad- viser, Professor Elizabeth A. Neilson, for her wise counsel and assistance. [54 Men ' s Athletic Association President Vice-President Secretary Salvatore Lipomi Karl Bochman Frederick Dargie In October, 1949, the Men ' s Athletic Association was organized at Lowell Teachers College. It has as its purpose, the formation of a united men ' s group, which would take an active part in the athletic and social functions at the college. Under the capable guidance of Pro- fessor Edward T. Knowles, the adviser to this pioneer organization, the Men ' s Ath- letic Association has made noteworthy progress during its first two years. The association has displayed leadership abil- ity and a sincere desire to promote coop- erative student activities. This past year has brought an increased Treasurer Athletic Chairman Social Chairman Donald Goddard Andrew Morse Paul O ' Laughlin enrollment of male students, and a propor- tionately increased interest in activities for men. In November a basketball team was formed, and a regular schedule of games was followed. A men ' s smoker, which afforded opportunity for the exchange of ideas, was also held. The Men ' s Athletic Association has many plans for the future, including on its agenda social activities as well as inter- mural and inter-school sports. The great hope of the M.A.A. is to build a stronger union of men who are interested in fostering its growth and promoting active participation in college affairs. [55] Library Committee Lecture Fund The increase in enrollment for the past few years brought with it a growing need for expanding our library facilities. The bulk of the work of this expansion program was placed upon the shoulders of our libra- rian, Miss Irene McDonald. In order to relieve Miss McDonald of some of her burdens, each class elected a representa- tive to assist her in some of her duties. In 1950 the Faculty Library Committee, composed of Professor Roberts, Professor Wilson, Professor O ' Rourke, and more re- cently Professor Knowles, opened the Dugan Room, which supplements the main library as a reading room. In its hushed atmosphere students complete re- search work or escape from the world in the pages of an entertaining story. This year the Lecture Fund Committee arranged a superior lecture program. The committee is made up of the school traffic chairman, a music representative, and a representative of each of the four classes. Its members worked together early in the year in order to set up a complete and popular lecture schedule. They based their selection of speakers on four major areas of interest, which are World Affairs, Travel, Inspirational and Professional Talks, and the Fine Arts. The Lecture Fund Committee has the power to bring to the college those people who interest and benefit the student body. This plan is progressive and praiseworthy. We hope that future committees will be as successful as our present one has been. ' [56] Campus Star Staff Asst.

Professor Christine Kane . Ruth Merrill Gloria Laferriere . Ruth Merrill Thus comes to a close the fifth year in the life of our college newspaper, The Campus Star. Since its initial appearance in November of 1 946, the Star has made great strides in the direction of professional achievement. The measuring stick which evaluates our progress in the journalistic field is wielded by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. Our paper first became affil- iated with this organization in 1949. At that time, our college paper, one of the hundred or more entrees qualifying in the teachers-college classification, took third place. The results of the conference last year showed that the staff had taken previ- ous criticism to heart, for the Campus Star advanced to second place. The outcome of the last venture for 1951 was, once again, a second-class placement. Yes, for five adolescent years our paper has grown, not only in the sense of sur- mounting technical limitations, but also in becoming a more powerful voice of the student body. This growth has not begun to reach its peak, but shall continue with the combined efforts of students and staff to urge it forward. [57] Music Educators ' National Conference CHAPTER 201 President Vice-President Jacqueline Curran Gene Winters Secretary Treasurer Carleton Thorne Frederick Dargie The Lowell Teachers College chapter of the Music Educators ' National Conference was organized in 1949, under the sponsor- ship and guidance of Professor Cyrus B. Thompson, head of the music department. The professional association itself was formed in 1907. The M.E.N.C. provides opportunities for its student-teacher members to assist in music activities at every level of educa- tion. This practical experience is achieved through participation in programs, dem- onstrations, and discussions which are sponsored either by the professional organ- ization or held here at the college by Chap- ter 201. At such functions the conference members become acquainted with, and learn from, leaders in the field. In December, 1950, a conference of the Massachusetts Chapters of the M.E.N.C. A. was held at Lowell Teachers College. This conference was the first of its kind, and was attended by music educators and stu- dents from all parts of the state. The Music Educators Journal of the M.E. N.C.A. is the official publication of the organization. Its up-to-the-minute sugges- tions and information concerning ma- terials and events of importance are used by supervisors and students alike. The M.E. N.C.A. marks another step in the direction of professional cooperation with the exchanging of new ideas and methods. [58] Junior-Senior Choir The Junior-Senior Choir is a hard- working group which has brought limitless hours of enjoyment to others. Under the direction of Professor Cyrus B. Thompson, the junior and senior music students have built up a repertoire which makes them much in demand, both at the college and at outside functions. The choir members, in their work, come in contact with the available choral materials which they will use in the future as music supervisors. The group gains much experience in conducting and ar- ranging through active participation. The Junior-Senior Choir has become standard entertainment on Fathers ' Night and on other traditional occasions. Their light, suitable selections add gaiety and charm to such events. The choir has pre- sented many programs at Lowell Textile Institute and at conferences and conven- tions all over the state. This group brings to the public, as well as to the student body, varied musical programs which are both interesting and appealing. The choir feels that its current achieve- ments are but a step toward many future years of success. The Junior-Senior Choir has served as a great unifying agent, unit- ing those who participate and the greater body of those who enjoy lovely music. [59] Concert Band Conductor Librarian Prof. Cyrus B. Thompson Carleton Thorne The concert band of Lowell Teachers College is a comparatively new organiza- tion, having been founded only three years ago. Yet, in that short time the band has become an integral part of the life here at college. It has added color, beauty, and dash to our assemblies, social functions, and traditional ceremonies. The concert band, under the direction of Cyrus B. Thompson, is open to all music students whether they be experienced or inexperienced in large group orchestra- tion. It offers the music student an oppor- tunity to work with those materials which will be of use to him in future years. Many problems and situations arise which the band members will later encounter as teachers. In meeting and solving such problems, they gain valuable experience. Another small, but very important branch of the band is the woodwind en- semble, composed of freshman, sophomore, and junior music majors. This ensemble has entertained at Investiture, teas, and many functions outside the college where they have achieved great acclaim. The concert band is a source of enjoy- ment to all at the college, and participa- tion in it is a valuable asset for those in the field of music education. [60] LEARNING the ROPES m3QGCCQ0OXZHXjCaXXZmXWCC Class History SEPTEMBER 1947 WEATHER Overcast - - Foggy We were almost one hundred strong, a group of unlearned tars, as freshmen have been since time immemorial. You could tell without a program the pin-curled, weirdly clad, tin-pail-toting frosh from the upperclassmen. The ordeals which we endured during hazing purchased our right to consideration, and we emerged from the melee a united class. To bolster this newly acquired strength and to steer our course straight, we needed the advice of someone who knew the ropes. As class adviser, Professor Neil- son ' s words of wisdom saved us from the reefs on more than one occasion. As the days passed, the tasks aboard ship were learned, and we began to live together harmoniously. Endless hours of peering through microscopes were assigned to all beginners, and some of us had sea legs before we finished with the lab. Manual wo rk came easily, but how those world history time belts and dates set our heads to spinning. No wonder the Class of ' 51 adopted that convenient habit of " cutting " at an early stage. Eight bells and January ninth found the entire crew amassed for inspection, for this was their first social, " The Snowball Frolic. " What a beautiful sight it was to see the girls with their ballerina skirts flaring as they danced under blue and white streamers. There were two other instances in which we were competitors. For Amateur Antics we lost ourselves as Irish colleens in " The Romance of Donegal. " What we didn ' t expect our four men to do — sing — direct — make props — arrange the set!! In spite of everyone ' s tireless efforts we came in near the end. To mend this broken sail, lyrics were written frantically, words typed, and rehearsals conducted energetically for the step singing in June. The victory was ours, and we hoisted the banner atop the masthead to encourage us forward. Oh, that cottage mix-up at Hampton set us back. We had to rig our storm sail in order to make headway, but we did it ! Classes were now routine; professors, known; friends, plentiful; and " big " sisters, kind and helpful. Yes, the rough seas had calmed, and we put ashore for two months leave. SEPTEMBER 1 948 WEATHER Fair Wind - - Smooth Sailing Up anchor -- ahoy! In a few weeks every one was in motion. Professor Hiscoe almost instigated a mutiny with his fateful introduction to history problems. How many words did he say? To thwart this gale we experienced a joyful field trip to the Babson Institute and Children ' s Museum with Professor Knowles. (Those girls were gone an awfully long time for lunch.) One never knows what to expect from sailors on land. The dashing Professor Sumner made the lawn his classroom, and seemed to unsteady girls ' nerves as well as tradition. [66] By this time, we possessed a new seriousness. As we came closer to our goal, we realized that " the importance of being earnest " was not a trite cliche, but a fact to be faced. Professional growth began in observation classes in the training schools, where we came in direct contact with children. It set our minds pondering on this question, " At what grade level will I do my best work? " The inner self commenced to awaken, and a more thoughtful approach was given subject matter. In parallel fashion our jovial social life continued. We entertained our ambitious " big " sisters at an unforgettable Christmas party. Our red-flannelled and slightly distorted Santa Claus was hilarious. The sophomore formal was next on the agenda, and the artists of our class produced breath-taking decorations. We shakingly served tea to the guests at Investiture, and vaguely pictured ourselves in caps and gowns in that far-away 1 951 . Our fiesta production for Amateur Antics turned into a fiasco, and we rated fourth place. With this, the rudder chain broke, and we moored for repairs. Meanwhile, our captain, President James Dugan, was called away to the Rhode Island College of Education, where he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree. We heartily cheered his fortune, for now more than ever we were proud of our good Captain. SEPTEMBER 1949 WEATHER High Winds - - Rough Seas The barometer on the bridge indicated the approach of a severe storm. Suddenly a cry pierced the air, " Layout there and furl the jib. " The sea swelled higher and higher, while the hail and sleet fell. Orders roared forth from the chief mate, and bedlam was the result as we attempted to make fast the ship. Bedlam is descriptive, for never were we so upset and so at sea. The new termin- ology of unitary teaching and language arts was a combination that swept us like a tidal wave. We stated objectives, knowledges, and attitudes, and searched for visual aids materials for our unit until we felt as crammed as Webster ' s Dictionary. Yet, we remained engulfed until we began practice teaching. Then, suddenly the turmoil ceased, and the weather cleared. Working directly with children, we put into prac- tice book knowledge and theory. We saw and experienced situations about which we had heard or read. This training was invaluable, for herein the dilemma of confusion was eliminated. Members of the crew excelled at practice school. At the same time, the musically talented of our group, who had been spending long hours at practising, giving re- citals, and teaching, emerged well-rounded music ians with a flair for performing. They are to be congratulated ! One day a boat drew up on our port side, and we took aboard a new man, Pro- fessor Procopio. Being a lively fellow and a willing worker, he soon became a good shipmate. Our first concerted effort was the Junior Prom, that once-in-a-life-time dance at the Beaver Brook Country Club. Gallant escorts and their ladies graced the dance floor. Today the gold and blue pins or pendants are treasured souvenirs of the envied occasion. [67] The crowning event of the year was the winning of step singing, for which we had so eagerly worked. As the eve of our Junior year passed, the words of the men on deck were reassur- ing, " Red sky at night, Sailors ' delight. " The ' morrow was not to be feared! SEPTEMBER 1950 WEATHER Clearing — Sunny On the September of this final year the ship got under weigh at fair speed, yet the crew was a little apprehensive. We had a tradition to live up to, a last year to enjoy, and so much more to learn. Investiture was held earlier than usual, because our faithful captain, President James Dugan, was retiring from sea life. Our " little sister " class made an all-out effort to make this a memorable ceremony, even to the purchasing of dainty corsages. As we walked down the aisle, led by our new class officers, and were invested in our caps and gowns by our good Captain, an amazing transition took place. We were no longer uncertain people playing the part; we were Seniors. As such, we immediately began to work on the production of a yearbook, which is a significant matter for any graduating class. After the selecting of a theme, " The Clipper Ship Era, " the staff elaborated on this idea in order to give unity to the entire book. Our art editors are much to be commended for their contributions, which so enlivened the literature. The last days of any voyage are busy ones for sailors. There is a continual list of tasks to be completed. Daily routine is interrupted, and life is much upset. From early December through May all of us were interviewed once or several times by Superintendents, who anxiously sought the best prospects. As we have progressed in seamanship during the past four years, so has Lowell Teachers College made headway. Enrollment has doubled itself, the percentage of male students has greatly increased, and the Campus Star has received awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association for three years. We have faith that our alma mater will continue to grow in honor and in prestige. We look for inspiration and leadership in this growth from our new president, Dr. Daniel O ' Leary. He brings to Lowell Teachers College scholarship, experience, and high character. Commencement day and graduation are at hand; life takes on a new significance. Full-fledged seamen, we have grown immeasurably in knowledge, friendship, and humility. We are eager to face the challenge of the new and richer life for which we have been preparing. Greater adventure and greater rewards are on the horizon, and so, with faith and confidence in our mission, we set our sails and head into deeper waters. [68] LOOKING AHEAD " Where lies the land to which this ship would go? Far, far ahead is all its shipmates know? ' ' This is the end of our four-year journey at L.T.C. At the same time it marks the beginning of a second and more impor- tant voyage. What we will do or how we will fare is past our knowing. But we do know that the friends we have made here, the advice and the knowledge which has been so generously and lovingly bestowed will serve us well as we work toward the great Finality wherein lies all joy and success. This book is not an ending, but a begin- ning of the life for which we have spent many long years in preparation. Our college, where our hopes were strength- ened, our philosophy defined and deter- mined, our bodies and minds developed, will remain close to our hearts. It will not be a sentimental landmark, but a bulwark of faith and knowledge no matter where life ' s ship may carry us. 70] Faculty Directory Herman Brase 58 Holbrook Ave., Lowell Vivian Burns 407 High St., Lowell Elizabeth Coffey 183 Wilder St., Lowell Dr. Charles Dalrymple 34 Richmond Ave., Worcester Dr. James Dugan 32 Blake St., Cambridge John Fitzgerald 93 Dover St., Lowell Marie Gearan 255 Summer St., Gardner Emma Graham 15 South Walker St., Lowell Isobel Gregory 664 Mammoth Rd., Dracut Marguerite Gourville 22 Lexington St., Everett Mary C.
