Beneath a grand triumphal arch Of Education ' s vict ' ry march I lie in state, While on my face The tread of many a Student falls, To those who think I do but rest Insentiate: Hear! I am the best To whom the voice of Wisdom calls. Thrill to the day when I was laid, With token dab of mortar made A living symbol, Upward step Toward the prize which Knowledge proffers. I he years will see my tace grow worn, And in my burnished surface born A stronger glow, Proclaiming still The treasure-trove true Study offers. James A. Wakefield

" Thirty Years of Progress” is much more than a theme to Vice- President Belle Cooledge. She, alone, has watched the college grow from an unpretentious beginning to the fine, modern institution of today. For thirty years she has guided the evolution of the college from a mere department in the old Sacramento High School (now Sutter Junior High School) to its present home on the spacious campus with which we are so familiar. Miss Cooledge has always been a source of inspiration and assistance to the thousands of students who have attended Sacra¬ mento College. To them she has al¬ ways been a gentle and capable ad¬ viser and friend. Although not technically a past president of the college. Miss Cool- edge certainly must be included among them for her valuable contri¬ bution as dean of the college from 1916 to 1923. Certainly she is in¬ cluded in our affections. MISS BELLE COOLEDGE At the time of the completion of this book, six years will have passed since the retirement of Jeremiah Bev¬ erley Lillard, but memories of him are still vivid in the college and in the community. On the campus we are reminded of this kindly man, who was nationally known as an author on archeological subjects and as an authority on Nor¬ thern California Indians, by the J. B. Lillard Museum which stands as his memorial. That his prominence in the educational field was more than community - wide was clearly shown in the conferring upon him, at the time of his retirement as pres¬ ident of Sacramento College, the de¬ gree of Doctor of Pedagogy by the University of Southern California. It was with great sadness that the college learned of his death in Janu¬ ary, 1941, after his seventeen years of devoted service to its welfare. DR. RICHARD RUTLEDGE On March 6, 1942, the college was shocked to hear of the death of vi¬ brantly energetic Dr. Richard Ed¬ ward Rutledge, who was first a farm hand, then a store clerk, next a teacher, and then finally president of Sacramento College, in which ca¬ pacity he served it so well. Although he had only been president since 1940, he had won the admiration a d respect of those with whom he worked. His interests were wide and var¬ ied, as shown bv his community services as a member of NYA’s Re¬ gional Council of Administrators; chairman of the Community Chest Budget Committee: secretary of Sac¬ ramento General Advisory Commit¬ tee for Vocational Educational Edu¬ cation; soecial adviser for the de¬ fense training programs at McClel¬ lan and Mather Fields; and member of the Vocational Guidance Com¬ mittee in the State Department of Education. He proved to be a very efficient leader during his short period as administrator at Sacramento College. This volume is gratefully dedi¬ cated to Belle Cooledge, dean and acting president at the inception of Sacramento College; to our past presidents, Jeremiah B. Lil¬ lard and Richard E. Rutledge; and to our president, Nicholas Ricciardi. Each has made his or her contribution toward the growth and progress of our col¬ lege. DR. JEREMIAH B. LILLARD Since 1942, Dr. Nicholas Ricciardi has served as president of Sacra¬ mento College. This dark and smil¬ ing man has made himself so much a part of the college life that it is difficult to separate the two in one’s mind. This able administrator has served as president of California State Poly¬ technic School, California State Com¬ missioner for Vocational Education, chief of the California State Division of Secondary Education, president of San Bernardino Valley Junior Col¬ lege, president of the National As¬ sociation of State Directors of Voca¬ tional Education, and president of the American Association of Junior Colleges. For the students of Sacramento College his most important position is the one which he holds as their president. DR. NICHOLAS RICCIARDI
