Tradition and technology team up in new Ferguson Building Albion’s recently completed administration building may be the “new kid on the block” but, frankly, you’d never know it. The William C. Ferguson Student, Technology, and Administrative Services Building opened in June and already looks quite at home on the campus quadrangle, thanks to its classical lines and red-brick exterior. Don’t let the traditional architecture fool you, however. Inside, the building is a high-tech powerhouse, replete with high-speed Internet connections, wireless networking, teleconferencing capabilities, and sophisticated hardware. The 24-hour computer classroom on the ground level is equipped with 15 wireless laptops and furnishings that can be configured for individual and small-group projects as well as for large-group training sessions. The room also has four video-editing stations. Elsewhere in the building, conference/seminar rooms are outfitted with an array of multimedia equipment and with Internet and cable TV access. Thus, students and faculty can use wireless laptops and personal digital assistants for projects and presentations or take advantage of the College’s new Internet 2 connection for videoconferencing—all without leaving their classroom.

This image of the lamp of knowledge, now on display on the building’s first floor, is one of two tile mosaics preserved from the old administration building (erected in 1902 as the Gassette Memorial Library).

The Ferguson Building is located on the south edge of the main quadrangle between Olin Hall and the Kellogg Center, on the site of the previous administration building. From the ground to the top of its 20-ton copper cupola, the structure is 90 feet tall. Diane Ariza (right), director of multicultural affairs, says her new location on the building’s first floor gives her office increased visibility. Housed in the same suite are offices for the First-Year Experience and the College chaplain.

(continued from p. 3) “The Ferguson Building provides state-of-the-art instructional and student project/research capabilities in the same building with technology support services,” says Troy VanAken, vice president for information technology. “We believe this will allow Albion College to continue to succeed in integrating technology into the campus experience while preparing students for the increasingly technological world that awaits them after graduation.” Home to the Office of the President and five administrative divisions—Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Information Technology, Finance and Management, and Institutional Advancement—the building was designed to provide easy access to services for the entire campus community. In one visit, a student can order a transcript at the Registrar’s Office, pick up scholarship information at the Financial Aid Office, pay a campus phone bill at the Accounting Office, ask a housing question at the Residential Life Office and find out what employers have been scheduled to conduct interviews at the Career Development Office. “Our students have responded enthusiastically to the Ferguson Building,” notes President Peter Mitchell. “Not only does it make our student services more efficient and convenient, but the building offers a supportive and comfortable learning environment as

well. And housing our administrative staff in a single location has resulted in a marvelous synergy. We will all benefit from our increased opportunities for exchanging ideas and information with one another.” Construction on the four-story, 48,000 square-foot structure began in summer 2000. It was completed in May at a cost of $8-million. The building was made possible by a leadership gift of $4-million from William Ferguson, ’52, and his wife, Joyce, as part of Albion’s $120-million capital campaign, LIBERAL ARTS AT WORK: CHALLENGING MINDS, TRANSFORMING LIVES. The retired chairman and CEO of the telecommunications firm NYNEX (now part of Verizon), Ferguson has multiple connections to the College, having been an Albion student, alumnus, parent, visiting professor, trustee, acting president and chairman of the Board of Trustees. He was awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree by the College in 1996. Other donors to the project include: James and Verle Anderson Klungness, ’50; Gertrude Elgear Schmidt, ’49, and the late Jarvis Schmidt, ’49; the Charles J. Strosacker Foundation of Midland; and Paul “Skip” Ungrodt, Jr., ’52. Their gifts are recognized in the naming of the four floors in the building. A dedication ceremony was held Sept. 28 during Homecoming Weekend. During the ceremony, Bill Ferguson noted that the building should be regarded as a

means of advancing Albion as a “premier liberal arts college in the Midwest.” “Joyce and I believe deeply in a liberal arts education as a foundation for a lifetime of learning,” he continued, “and that’s what Albion is all about. . . . Whatever Joyce and I have done for this school, we have gotten more in return, much more. That’s what giving back is all about. All of us have an obligation to share whatever time we might have, whatever talents we might have, whatever resources we might have in order to leave this a better place.” The Ferguson Building—which sits between the College’s Kellogg Center and Olin Hall—is located on the site of the former Lottie L. Gassette Memorial Library. After the construction of the Stockwell Memorial Library, the old Gassette Library served as the College’s administration building before being demolished to make way for the new construction. A pair of large tile mosaics from the Gassette Library were restored and included in the Ferguson Building. One— an open book with the lamp of knowledge—is on the wall on the first floor of the building near the entrance, while the other—featuring a scroll—is part of the building’s cupola.

Five young alumni tackle diverse challenges Editor’s note: In Io Triumphe we often highlight Albion graduates who have distinguished themselves over many years in their career fields. In the following profiles, we look instead at five alumni all within their first 10 years of graduation. We think you will be impressed with their achievements thus far, and even more importantly, with their determination to excel and their optimism for the future.

Ginanne Brownell, ’93: Chasing the famous and the infamous By Jake Weber The phone rang in Ginanne Brownell’s London apartment one day last fall. Her editor at Newsweek was on the other end of the line. “He had heard that two of Osama Bin Laden’s brothers had rented a house in the west of England a few years back. So I went to find the family angle . . . not really sure what we were looking for but that’s what you do . . . you go see what happens,” Brownell says. “My mother called me as I was driving down. I told her I was looking for Bin Laden’s family. She got confused and told my brother later, ‘I’m so worried about your sister. Newsweek sent her to go find Osama Bin Laden in Dorset.’” Chasing the famous and infamous is all part of the job for the 1993 Albion graduate, who has spent the past several years based in London and Warsaw, working as a freelance journalist for Newsweek, and occasionally writing for People magazine and the British newspaper, The Observer. In August, she joined Newsweek’s London bureau full-time. “[Newsweek] gives me a lot of free rein to write stories that I find interesting,” says Brownell. “It’s nice to have that freedom, that they trust me to do stories they can use.” A preferred reporter for Newsweek’s coverage of the British royal family, Brownell regularly contributes to the magazine’s international and online editions. She has written about British views on Catholicism, profiled an exiled journalist who broadcasts to Zimbabwe from a London studio and offered a first-person account of her volunteer work in a Russian orphanage.

Another highlight was a 2000 interview with Aleksander Kwasniewski, who at the time had just been reelected as Poland’s president. “Usually in the States, you have to put in your request [for a presidential interview] six or seven months in advance. I called Kwasniewski’s office and was told I could come in the next day at 10 a.m.!” laughs Brownell. While her current work focuses more on the cultural or political underpinnings of events, on occasion she is called to cover a breaking news story. When the Russian submarine Kursk sank in the Barents Sea in August 2000, she was sent at the last minute to Trondheim, Norway where the British rescue effort was under way. “I didn’t have any contacts. I flew out, got there and . . . ended up finding where the boat had launched from, talked to people who had been involved with the rescue mission. I wrote a piece in about 24 hours.” It ran as a Newsweek Web exclusive. Brownell comes from a newswriting family—her mother used to write for the Flint Journal—but the former Albion history major says her media career was born more of desperation than family tradition. “It was March of my senior year, and my suitemate said, ‘We need to decide what you’re doing after May,’” recalls Brownell. Even though her one journalism course at Albion had resulted in a less-than-stellar 2.7, she landed an internship with “Larry King Live” on CNN. “The gods must have smiled on me, because I had no qualifications. I moved to Washington and got hooked.” This experience led Brownell to an internship with the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Washington bureau and then to a full-time job with CNN. “In my first job at CNN I watched the House and Senate floors, looking for sound bites,” says Brownell. “It was always

Among Ginanne Brownell’s most memorable assignments while reporting for Newsweek was an interview she did with Poland’s president, Aleksander Kwasniewski (right). She is now working in the newsweekly’s London office after stints with the BBC and CNN. stressful around noon because the producers were constantly looking for a good sound bite for the lunchtime news. It was typical that about five minutes before the show was to air some senator would say something that was good. I would have to run down the hallways, screaming to get the tape, find the exact bite, edit it and get ready to roll it on the show. I wanted to march over to Congress and tell them to say their good stuff earlier in the day so I wouldn’t have to have a lunchtime marathon every day.” Four years later, Brownell had had enough of the Washington political scene and frequent 12-hour days. She decided to pursue a master’s degree in history at the London School of Economics and Political Science. After finishing her degree, she moved into print journalism in order to work on stories she could develop in greater depth than was possible in broadcasting. “History, foreign relations—these studies help you grasp the bigger picture,” she explains. Brownell is now completing a second master’s degree, in international journalism, at City University in Islington. She also plans to earn a doctorate in Russian or Eastern European history, with the intent of living in London and continuing a long career in journalism. “I think it’s important as a journalist to have an area of expertise,” says Brownell. That and a lot of chutzpah. “I learned during my time at Albion that the world is your oyster, and you can take advantage of what’s in front of you if you have enough gumption to go for it.”

Now completing a residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Michigan, Jafar Hasan says he finds his greatest professional reward in helping patients, especially children, overcome the effects of a congenital abnormality. “It is very gratifying to think about the positive impact we have.”

Jafar Hasan, ’95: ‘A sense of contribution’ By Dana Fey, ’02 Becoming a surgeon always seemed a natural path to Jafar Hasan, ’95, who is now completing his residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Michigan. “My father was a surgeon, and so I saw that as something I would like to do,” he explains. By the age of seven, he was “operating” on his teddy bear, and at 10, after viewing a special on television and reading some articles, Hasan became fascinated with the field of plastic surgery. He discovered it was hands-on, diverse and creative. “I liked that.” Working with his hands, and thus indulging his creative impulse, has always been important to Hasan. Born in Pakistan but growing up in the U.S., as a child he went back every year to visit his extended family in Lahore. There he was intrigued by the traditional woodcarving that adorned the furniture.

M. ARVOY PHOTO

Around the age of 14 or 15, he began making his own furniture. He continued to refine his craft in a one-year woodworking apprenticeship in Pakistan following his graduation from Albion, and he enjoys working in his wood shop at his family’s home whenever time permits. He still travels regularly to visit family in Pakistan. Despite the dispute between India and Pakistan over Kashmir and the strife in neighboring Afghanistan, he says life in Pakistan is not as unsettled as one might think from the reports on the evening news. The views are distorted on both sides, he adds. “My family [in Pakistan] was worried about me after September 11 as well, because of the anti-foreign feeling that was being reported . . . especially concerning people of my ethnicity.” But he tells his family and friends in both countries not to worry. “Things look worse from a distance.” After returning from his apprenticeship in 1996, Hasan went on to the University of Michigan Medical School and earned his M.D. degree in June 2000. He then stayed on at Michigan for his internship and residency. Hasan acknowledges there are misconceptions about his field of surgery. “There is an inclination to view plastic surgeons as ‘Hollywood surgeons,’ and cosmetic surgery does have a part, but the work is much broader,” he explains. Plastic surgeons devote much of their practice to repair of congenital defects or trauma damage, and to reconstruction needed after cancer surgery. Demand for this kind of work is growing, Hasan says. He finds the greatest professional reward comes from helping a patient, often a child, overcome the effects of a congenital abnormality. A cleft palate, for example, if left untreated would leave a child open to the ridicule of being marked “different” in the eyes of others. “When you think about what they would have to go through, what other children would say, it is very gratifying to think about the positive impact we have on these kids.” When he began his six-year residency, Hasan followed a three-day rotation with the first day extending from 5:30 a.m. through the whole day and night, followed by two 12- to 14-hour days. Then the cycle repeated itself. The schedule has eased a bit, he says, now that he’s in his third year, though he still puts in long hours. He averages about two days off a month. Patient need and demand, especially at a regional leader in medical care like the University of Michigan, are huge. And this keeps the workload high, he says. As he has gained experience in clinical practice, Hasan has seen what he calls a “natural progression” in himself. Interacting with patients built his confidence in his skills and in his ability to assess and respond to complex situations. His rotation in the trauma unit, he recalls, brought all of his previous training together. “A patient is crashing, and you learn how to react and make your reactions second nature. That is what helps you save lives.” Although his residency training is demanding at the moment, he eventually hopes to have some time for research. Interested in health care economics, he would like to earn his M.B.A. and look for better ways to balance the quality of care and the costs. “Surgeons have a high standard of how to do things. We try to be perfectionists, but that becomes more difficult in today’s setting of limited resources.” For Hasan making a difference is the key. And he believes his contributions can take many forms— whether inspiring his students, providing patient care or adding to the knowledge in his field through research. “I always hope to have that sense of contribution.”

Nick Cucinella, a.k.a. “Dr. Cuch,” joined Rev. RightTime and the First Cuzins of Funk in 2000, just as the band was gaining a national following. The group has since signed a deal with a division of Sony records and has been featured on VH1’s 2001 “Year in Review” special.

Nick Cucinella, ’01: Fake fur and funk By Jake Weber There’s little doubt Nick Cucinella, ’01, brings a unique perspective to meetings of the Albion College Board of Trustees. Cucinella has the distinction of being a member in good standing not only of the board but of the up-and-coming funk band Rev. Right-Time and the First Cuzins of Funk. (And chances are he will be the only alumnus ever to make that claim!) Tapped a year ago as a young alumni representative to the board, Cucinella brings solid credentials to the College’s chief decision-making body as a former Student Senate president and as a magna cum laude graduate in philosophy. His ability as a trombone player won him the spot on the Rev. Right-Time roster, but since then he has grown into marketing and management roles for the band (for which he credits his multifaceted liberal arts education). Much to Cucinella’s delight and amazement, the band’s fortunes began to take off just as he joined them late in his junior year at Albion, and the group has gained national attention—not to mention a contract with a division of Sony records—since then. While going on to graduate or law school is still Cucinella’s long-term goal, he admits he is having the time of his life in the roller-coaster world that is pop music today.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’d be crazy not to stick around and see,” says “Dr. Cuch,” who appears onstage, in blue fake fur and platform boots, at least four times a week. “I’m going to do it as long as it’s fun. And it is fun.” With the backing of Nile Rodgers, widely known as the producer for Madonna, David Bowie and other popular artists, the band was invited to participate in the “We Are Family” Foundation charity recording for the families affected by the September 11 tragedy. Cucinella found himself singing backup to the likes of Diana Ross, Luther Vandross and Bernadette Peters in a production that was filmed by Spike Lee. “No matter how famous someone is, individual personalities can still click,” says Cucinella, who enjoyed the chance to rub shoulders— and make friends—with some of the music industry’s top stars. In early 2000 the Rev. Right-Time wasn’t actually looking for a trombone player, but, says Cucinella, “I had learned all their songs on my own, [so] I just showed up one day and jumped onstage . . . and said, ‘I’m going to be your trombone player. . . .’ I came to about four shows, and they said, ‘Hold on, let us think about this.’ I gave them my phone number and a couple days later, I had the job.” But what started out as simply something fun to do on weekends took a sudden turn. At that time, Rev. Right-Time was well-established regionally, with a substantial fan base and plenty of critical acclaim. Then Virgin Records signed them to an album/tour contract, and the band hooked up with Rodgers. Cucinella spent what would have been the first semester of his senior year playing well over 100 concerts across the country. “[Life on the road] is like going to an amusement park with 10 people, [having] to keep track of everybody and making sure everyone gets to ride their rides,” explains Cucinella, with a laugh. He recalls a week when the bass player disappeared, and “no one had any idea where he was. . . . If you’re not exceptionally flexible, it can get to you. It’s definitely not a life for everybody.”

Now, after 30 months with the group, Cucinella plays in the horn line and writes some of the background horn parts. With band leader Patrick Ferris, Cucinella has formed a booking agency partnership, Right On Entertainment. They handle club bookings for the band, along with some marketing activities. (The band is represented by five different agencies for all national tours and promotion.) By general agreement within the band, Cucinella also serves as unofficial spokesperson, conducting a majority of the media interviews requested by college newspapers and local radio stations (roughly two interviews weekly). He is also involved in the band’s merchandising management, keeping the inventory and contracting with vendors. Cucinella offered his leadership skills to the band as he became increasingly aware of the need for improved financial management. “When I joined the band, the business was a mess,” he says. “I saw that we could save money if we did some of our own small-room booking and merchandise management, rather than let other people do them for us.” While the band’s relationship with Virgin Records didn’t work out, a new contract with Sumthing Else Musicworks, a division of Sony, looks promising. The band is negotiating for inclusion in the soundtrack of a major motion picture, and through concert tours their nationwide exposure is booming. The Rev. Right-Time regularly plays with the likes of funk stars George Clinton, Parliament and Funkadelic. Recognized for six years’ running by Michigan’s Review magazine as the state’s best funk band, the group has played on Mitch Albom’s nationally syndicated radio program and was also featured on VH1’s 2001 “Year in Review” special. While Cucinella works hard, his life is not without some glamour. A fashion consultant assists with his wardrobe and even the design of his often-changing facial hair. While never “into fashion” before, he admits some fondness for his ankle-length fake fur coat—but not for the five-inch platform boots he wears onstage. Though he traveled with the band during his senior year at Albion, Cucinella was able to finish his college graduation requirements, thanks to off-campus study credits earned at Princeton University, Cambridge University in England and other institutions. He admits he still gets some raised eyebrows when he tells people what he does for a living, but he knows he’s not likely to get another opportunity like this one. And the “crazy lifestyle” has its attractions, he observes. “There’s definitely excitement every day.”

After graduating from Stanford Law School in 2000, Susan Quinn headed to New York City to begin practice with the international law firm Morrison & Foerster. In the aftermath of September 11, she says, “The resilience of New Yorkers has been awe-inspiring to me.”

Susan Quinn, ’95: ‘Learning as you go’ By Dana Fey, ’02 Susan Quinn, ’95, is open to all possibilities—which is how a post-graduation job at Borders bookstore turned into a Stanford law degree and career with Morrison & Foerster, LLP, in New York City. Affectionately called “MoFo” by its employees, the law firm offers an environment where, according to Quinn, “the best thing about work is the smart and interesting people . . . not only the other lawyers, but the clients and staff.” Quinn’s day typically begins around 7 a.m. with a yoga class. Then she walks from her Hell’s Kitchen apartment to the office in midtown Manhattan. Though Quinn praises her firm as “supportive and humane,” she admits her work as a litigator can be intense. And it’s a real test at “multi-tasking,” since every day brings a smorgasbord of cases, all at various stages of completion. As Quinn explains, “My job as a litigator is to see to it that the case is moving through the system appropriately, which involves a lot of time preparing for every development.” Quinn loves the variety in her work. Morrison & Foerster is an international law firm with offices in 18 cities worldwide and nearly 1,000 lawyers. Its 30 different practices range across corporate law, environmental affairs, entertainment and communications, transportation, and technology. In addition to practicing in the areas of product liability and securities and insurance law, she always tries to have at least one pro-bono case in the works. “That way, I am giving back to the community.” One of her most satisfying wins was a pro-bono political asylum case in spring 2001. The client was a man from Guinea, who had to flee his country as the result of political activity. “He had to crawl out his window in the middle of the night,” she recounts. After

Quinn won the case, making it possible for him to remain permanently in the U.S., he brought his family here. Other recent cases have varied widely, including participation on a team that successfully defended an Internet company against a claim of fraud by its shareholders and defense of a large pharmaceutical company involved in a product liability suit. The road to New York actually began for Quinn with a job at Borders bookstore in Ann Arbor. During her two years with the bookstore chain right after graduation, she, along with other employees, tried to organize a union. Though they were ultimately unsuccessful, this taste of the workings of the legal system was enough to convince her she wanted a second helping. She enrolled at Stanford University Law School in 1997. Her summers during law school were spent on internships, including one at the International Labor Rights Fund in Washington, D.C., one at the United Auto Workers union in Detroit and one at Morrison & Foerster in New York. After graduating from Stanford, she joined Morrison & Foerster as an associate attorney in the litigation department of the firm’s New York office. Working in a department of just 30 people has made it easier to connect with her colleagues, she says. According to Quinn, “MoFo is a well-balanced environment. Some places you will consistently be expected to work all around the clock. At MoFo, there is still time for an outside life.” A Chicago area native, Quinn has readily adapted to life in New York. “I had visited New York City, and I always loved it.” Still she had some trepidation about living there at first. “I had no idea what I was getting into.” Then there was September 11 and its aftermath. “It’s hard to remember now how scary it was then,” she says. On September 11, she was in Atlanta for a case and found herself stranded there for several days until the airports reopened. Even then she could only fly as far as Philadelphia, and a car service picked her up for the final leg back to New York. She admits she had fleeting thoughts about whether she should remain in New York. A year later, however, Quinn finds herself well settled. “I wouldn’t think about leaving now.” Part of what convinced her to stay was the reaction of the city to the tragedy. “The resilience of New Yorkers has been awe-inspiring to me. The week after the attacks, I was walking to work and the sight of all of these people, carrying on with their lives, going to work in their highrise offices in Manhattan, or heading to a fire on a fire engine, was overwhelming, and so poignant and brave. “It sounds melodramatic, but for months I would look up at the buildings of midtown and think, ‘Just hold together.’ That this city that looks so indomitable could be fragile was shocking to me, and where I used to be intimidated by New York at times, now I feel more protective.” Now with two years of experience as a litigator, Quinn feels as though she is hitting her stride. The practice of law appeals to her, she says, largely because of the intellectual challenge each new case presents. “Law school [provides] the background history, but it doesn’t prepare you for what you actually do. When you get out into a firm, you learn as you go.” At this point, she isn’t sure what path she will follow in the future, but one thing is certain: as she has done all along, she won’t hesitate to pursue new opportunities as they come her way.

Austin Baidas is currently CEO and president of Four Seasons Housing, Inc., one of the top 15 manufactured homes companies worldwide, with annual sales of nearly $100-million. Four Seasons is the third company Baidas has headed since he graduated 10 years ago.

Austin Baidas, ’92: ‘I want to be the best in the industry’ By Jake Weber Austin Baidas, ’92, has business in his blood. How else can you explain that, at age 31, he has already turned around one unprofitable company, and kept a second in the black—with sales of nearly $100-million—despite the recent economic downturn. While he did get his start working for his dad, credit for his success rests solely on his shoulders—and the principles he works by. “The idea is to figure out the most efficient way to run a business. I thoroughly believe that the most efficient company tends to win,” he says. “So essentially I want to make sure I’m the best in the industry. . . . It doesn’t mean being the biggest, just running the best company.” A member of the Carl A. Gerstacker Liberal Arts Institute for Professional Management while at Albion, Baidas got his start “washing a lot of RVs” and devoting many of his college weekends to selling recreational vehicles at the family’s Wixom, Mich., dealership. After graduation, he spent three years with NBD Bank (now Bank One), where he soon became convinced that life in a large corporation wasn’t for him. Baidas returned to work for his father, managing an RV dealership, but his energy and curiosity quickly led him to a much larger challenge. “Because of my experience in commercial lending, I’d go visit [my father’s] other investments,” recalls Baidas. One of those companies was TriMatrix, a water and soil analysis laboratory for engineers, consultants and large industrial companies. His father was contemplating selling or liquidating the unprofitable company, but

Baidas convinced him to wait. “I said, ‘Hey, I’ll move to Grand Rapids and see what I can do with it.’ Looking back, it sounds easier than it probably was.” Baidas added the needed business discipline to TriMatrix’s technical product, learning some valuable lessons himself. “Because we were losing money, I paid attention to every single penny that was spent,” he says. He was able to immediately reduce the company’s overhead costs and refocus the sales strategy toward stable, growing segments of the market. Under Baidas’ management, TriMatrix went from red ink to earning over a half-million dollars annually, and it continues to be a strong company. “[The operations manager] taught me a lot about chemistry, and I think I taught him some about business,” says Baidas, who still consults unofficially once or twice each week with the manager. “We bounce ideas off each other.” Baidas is currently CEO and president of Four Seasons Housing, Inc., one of the top 15 manufactured homes companies worldwide, with annual sales of nearly $100-million. Based in Middlebury, Ind., Four Seasons designs the exterior and interior of all of its products which sell at the retail level for between $50,000 and $150,000 each. “A lot of what I do is run interference so that everyone else can do their job,” Baidas says modestly. “You want to make sure you hire talented people and then get out of their way.” In truth, as CEO, Baidas oversees the management of some 300 retail partnerships and the work of 400 manufacturing and office employees. He deals a lot with customer concerns and, as at TriMatrix, carefully, incessantly monitors the books. “One of the neat things about business is that you have a scorecard, which is your financial statement,” Baidas explains. “Everything that occurs with the business flows through the financial statement.” But Baidas is quick to note that financial accountability does not, in and of itself, make a good business. “I think the reason we’re successful is [because] our larger competitors, publicly-traded firms—they’re very concerned about their numbers for each quarter, and sometimes [that makes them] short-sighted.” Putting quarterly sales volume ahead of long-term earnings may hurt them over time. In contrast, he says, “Sometimes we’ll give up the sale this month to get more sales next year.” The same long-term perspective applies to business integrity. “The vast majority of our retailers do operate on high standards and do a good job. But what do we do about the ones who don’t? Obviously, we want the sales, but we realize that if we have an unhappy homeowner at the end of the line, we’re going to lose money,” he says. “I talk to retailers and try and get them to [follow ethical] business practices [or] I look for different people to replace them. It’s a tough line to walk.” Despite working 60-hour weeks, Baidas managed to run in the Chicago Marathon in October. And he serves as an internship sponsor and sits on the Visiting Committee for the Gerstacker Institute. “Whatever I can do to help out education, I like to do it,” says Baidas. “I appreciate the education I received from Albion, because I think it really helped me.”

James Earl Jones gives inaugural Stoffer Lecture Albion College kicked off the 2002-03 school year at its Aug. 29 Opening Convocation with celebrated actor James Earl Jones as the featured speaker.

The Stoffer Lecture Series has been made possible by Albion area industrialist and trustee Bill Stoffer, ’74, who has pledged to provide a $1.5-million endowment for the series once Albion’s alumni giving rate reaches 50 percent. As of the end of the 200102 fiscal year June 30, alumni participation had risen to 48 percent, the highest in the College’s history and the highest of any college or university in Michigan. To acknowledge the success to date, and to encourage the increased participation needed to reach the 50 percent goal by June 30, 2003,

Stoffer agreed to begin the lecture series a year early. The series will now continue annually with one of the College’s six Institutes as a co-sponsor on a rotating basis. The Honors Institute served in this capacity for the inaugural lecture. Also recognized during the convocation were the recipients of four endowed professorships: Geoffrey Cocks, Julian S. Rammelkamp Professor of History; Dale Kennedy, A. Merton Chickering Professor of Biology; Glenn Perusek (political science), Royal G. Hall Professor of Social Sciences; and Selva Raj, Stanley S. Kresge Professor of

‘Summit’ looks at business growth Albion community representatives and Albion College alumni, friends, current students and staff came together for an Economic Summit held on campus Oct. 5. They discussed the economic future of the Greater Albion area and how College alumni and friends might serve as expert resources for area economic development efforts. President Peter Mitchell and trustee Bill Stoffer, ’74, co-chaired the meeting. The local economy has suffered recently with the closing of Trillium Hospital in February and the Harvard Industries foundry operation in August. These developments coupled with other plant closings over the past three decades have resulted in a population decline of over 1,000 in each census from 1970 through 2000. Stoffer noted that, despite the adversity Albion has faced, there is a special resilience among the people of the community. To bring in new jobs, the Albion Economic Development Corp. (EDC), under the direction of Peggy Sindt, ’73, has been aggressive in its efforts to attract businesses to the area, and counts among recent successes the opening of Premier Corrugated Box Co.; Ossur (Albion Division), an international manufacturer of prosthetic devices; and Albion Online. Albion’s industrial park is well-suited to supporting small and diversified

manufacturing, Sindt noted, especially with the introduction of an incubator site for technology-related firms. During the meeting the group identified three areas that will be central in future business development: ■ The need for improved housing/quality of life. Addressing quality of life issues, including the availability of upscale housing and other amenities, will make it far easier to attract new businesses. ■ Flexibility in adapting to the ‘new economy’. The ‘new economy’ emphasizes intellectual assets and technology as primary means for growth. Albion College staff and students can help educate businesses that are already established in Albion on how they

might adapt to the new economy and provide assistance for incoming businesses, particularly in the technology arena. ■ Support for minority business development. Economic development efforts should build on current incentives to use minority suppliers in many industries and on government grant programs that support minorityowned businesses. Among the next steps for local economic development identified during the meeting were: ■ Creating a growth fund that would invest in basic businesses as well as new ideas. ■ Working on both short-term and longterm growth. Even as ‘new economy’

Economic Summit participants included Joyce Spicer (above left), Albion Board of Education president, and Charlie Raphael, ’68, (above right) retired banking executive. alternatives are identified, manufacturing will still provide many jobs for the immediate future. ■ Harnessing the talents and expertise of Albion College faculty, students and alumni. Mitchell encouraged the College’s alumni and staff to continue to assist in Albion’s economic development by providing access to capital and identifying businesses that would be a “good fit” for this area, especially entrepreneurial or start-up ventures in technology or life sciences research.

First-year program wins awards Although just beginning its third year, Albion College’s William Atwell Brown, Jr., and Mary Brown Vacin First-Year Experience (FYE) program recently gained two national awards in recognition of excellence and leadership in helping first-year students move successfully from high school to college. The University of South Carolina’s National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition and Houghton Mifflin Publishing Co. recognized Drew Dunham, assistant dean for the first-year experience, as one of 10 Outstanding FirstYear Student Advocates. Dunham was selected from a pool of 115 nominees. Based on the high quality of its first-year program, Albion College was also named a semi-finalist for recognition as an “Institution of Excellence” by The Policy Center on the First Year of College. “The Albion First-Year Experience model is unique nationwide because of the collaboration between Academic Affairs and Student Affairs. It’s designed so that the co-curriculum will fully support the academic mission of the College,” said Sally Walker, vice president for student affairs. The First-Year Experience program encompasses interdisciplinary First-Year Seminars (now part of the core requirement for all students), Learning Strategies Workshops and comprehensive academic planning.

In addition, the Richard M. Smith Common Reading Experience engages all first-year students and faculty in reading and discussion of a book dealing with issues of diversity.

Freshman class largest in 10 years Albion welcomed 526 new first-year students (the largest entering class in 10 years) and 29 transfers for a total of 555 new students. That total represents an increase of 31 percent over the past two years. A larger first-year class along with improved retention of upperclassmen has yielded a total student enrollment of 1,664, up 118 from last year’s 1,546. The quality indicators for the first-year class are strong as well: the class boasts a 3.6 high school GPA (up from 3.5 a year ago), and 29 percent of these students come from the top 10 percent of their high school graduating class and 62 percent from the top quarter. Their average ACT score is 25. Fiftysix alumni legacy families are represented in this class, up from 34 last year. David Hawsey, vice president for enrollment, credits a number of factors for the increase including greater student interest in Albion’s distinctive blend of a classical liberal arts education, coupled with innovative preprofessional programs; an increased emphasis on campus visits; and a growing, national network of alumni volunteers who support the admissions effort.

The Black Student Alliance House was rededicated as the James A. Welton House Sept. 28, during Homecoming 2002, in memory of the 1904 Albion graduate who went on to a distinguished career in education.

Albion’s first black graduate honored By Jake Weber After his graduation from Albion 98 years ago, James Welton likely never set foot on campus again. Nonetheless, his presence was felt throughout Homecoming Weekend 2002, as he was honored posthumously with a Distinguished Alumni Award and with the rededication of the Black Student Alliance (BSA) house in his name. Inquisitive students, supportive faculty, a research/ learning field trip and a little luck all contributed to uncovering James Welton’s past and securing his place as a noteworthy alumnus. As late as fall 1999, the College had essentially no knowledge of Welton’s postcollege life. In a February 1999 Pleiad article, Tiffany Gates, ’00, wrote that the College for some time had believed Welton to be its first African American graduate, yet an archive file contained only a form letter to Welton from then-President John Seaton and a letter from a relative announcing Welton’s death in June 1929. Gates also found some oral history reports that implied Welton had been lynched in his home state of Alabama, presumably because he had a college education.

Although Gates initially wrote the article simply to fulfill a Pleiad assignment, she couldn’t let go of the story. “I posed a challenge in the article [to recognize Welton’s achievements] and that drew people’s attention. It became a common topic on campus,” says Gates. She kept the issue alive over the next two years. The Welton story also piqued the curiosity of American history professor Marcy Sacks, who included it as a research methodology assignment in a fall 2001 upper-level history class on race and nationalism. She gave the form letter to the students in an assignment about research methodology. While students found bits of material in the College archives and through genealogical Web sites online, six students decided to

continue the research with Sacks after the assignment had ended. After exhausting the resources available in Albion, the six, along with Sacks, traveled to Alabama during the following winter break, where they spent a week digging through archives, trying to learn more about Welton. “I was excited to show my students how historians actually conduct research, searching through dusty documents in archives,” says Sacks. At this point, Sacks and the students knew that Welton had distinguished himself in more than one way during his tenure at Albion. Noted for his writing and speaking abilities, he was a member of the debate team and contributed many articles and opinion pieces to the Pleiad as well as the yearbook. Welton was elected a Y.M.C.A. officer, junior class treasurer and class orator, and earned a

teaching certificate in addition to his bachelor’s degree. The son of former slaves, Welton was presumably educated exclusively in all-black schools in rural Alabama prior to attending Albion College. At a time when fewer than two Americans in a thousand earned a college degree, his matriculation alone made him exceptional. Sacks explains, however, that Welton’s return to Mt. Meigs, Ala., in 1904 speaks even more to Welton’s courage and convictions. “This period and place in American history were incredibly hostile to blacks, especially those who were educated,” says Sacks. “Life for Welton must have been very difficult, yet he managed to accomplish so much and do so much good for his community.” As Sacks and her students discovered, Welton’s accomplishments were indeed extraordinary. After Welton graduated from Albion, he taught math and Latin for two years at the State Normal School in Montgomery, where he also served one year as the school’s football coach. During this time, Welton was the superintendent of the religious school at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, which would later be served by Martin Luther King, Jr. Welton moved to Birmingham in 1908 and worked as an insurance auditor for several years, and later was appointed by President Woodrow Wilson to be a postmaster in western Alabama. For the last several years of his life, Welton was principal of Birmingham’s

Kids ‘N’ Stuff opens downtown By Morris Arvoy After three years of hopes and hard work, Kids ‘N’ Stuff: An Interactive Experience for Kids held its grand opening Sept. 15. The new children’s museum is located on Superior Street in downtown Albion. Kids ‘N’ Stuff (KNS) began as a dream in the spring of 2000 when children’s activist Becky Mitchell and Michigan businessman Tom Feldpausch joined forces. Mitchell, who is also Albion College’s first lady, wanted to see a space where children in south-central Michigan could bring their families to learn and have fun. Feldpausch, who operates a chain of grocery stores in Albion and other nearby locations, shared that dream. He donated the former J.C. Penney building in downtown Albion to house such a space. Kids ‘N’ Stuff began a capital campaign one year later with a goal of $600,000. By last spring they had surpassed that goal by $17,000. Approximately $100,000 was raised locally, and another $175,000 came from the Midland-based Gerstacker Foundation. With a double goal of education and entertainment, Kids ‘N’ Stuff is aimed primarily at children aged 2-12, and at educators in Barry, Branch, Calhoun, Hillsdale and Jackson counties. The mission of Kids ‘N’ Stuff is to enhance educational opportunities for children and their families

Patterson School. Although he died in 1929 after a period of ill health, his accomplishments were such that 30 years later the City of Birmingham named a new elementary school in his memory. As this news was brought to light, the plans to “do something” to acknowledge Welton took on a greater significance. Salina Baldwin, ’03, president of the Black Student Alliance in 2001-02, spearheaded a BSA petition to the Albion College trustees to rename the BSA house in Welton’s memory. “When Dr. Sacks did the research, we realized that he was a trailblazer in a lot of things,” says Baldwin. “By renaming the house, we intended to show our appreciation for the pathway begun [by Welton] for African American students at Albion College.” Welton also was nominated for a Distinguished Alumni Award. But even as plans for the honoring at Homecoming 2002 were being finalized, Sacks continued work on filling a gap in Welton’s past—namely, to locate some of his descendants. From records found in Alabama, Sacks knew that Welton and his wife, Mary Louise, had raised five children. She and her students had traced some of them to other states, but had been unable to find any direct descendants who were still living. Then, less than two weeks before Homecoming, Sacks located Welton’s grandson and greatgranddaughter, successful small-business owners living in Tennessee. “We were so fortunate to find members of Welton’s family.

through interactive exhibits that inspire the imagination. The exhibits are also useful tools for families and educators to teach children lessons about science, math and reading, while improving children’s social skills, according to Elizabeth Porter, KNS executive director. Exhibits already in place are a drama area complete with stage, backdrop and dressing space; an 8 x 20 ft. climbing wall; a water play exhibit where children can study water as a force in nature and its impact on human life; First Feats, a toddler learning space with a full scale replica of a Model T car; and a mini-Felpausch grocery store. The grocery store, complete with grocerystocked shelves, refrigerator units and a brimming produce section, offers children a chance to learn about handling money and the importance of good nutrition, says Jill Mihelich, programming and outreach coordinator for Kids ‘N’ Stuff. “It’s a great opportunity for children to come in and try to develop a balanced meal plan for their families,” says Mihelich. The children are able to scan their own purchases, use a cash register, and learn to read food

packaging labels for nutrition information. The main audience for KNS is children preschool to fifth grade, and the museum welcomes visits from school and church groups across the region, as well as individual families. Albion College alumni who have assisted with the museum planning and educational programs include: Calhoun Intermediate School District superintendent Chris Wigent, ’79, project architect Dick Mitchell, ’73, Albion Public Schools teacher Peg Mitchell Turner, ’69, and KNS board members Dan Boggan, ’67, Karen Knudson Dobbins, ’74, Mark Schauer, ’84, and Bill Stoffer, ’74. In addition, Albion College students have volunteered at KNS in various ways. Call Kids ‘N’ Stuff at 517/629-8023 for hours and more information.

After many months of searching, Albion history professor Marcy Sacks located descendants of James Welton living in Tennessee. Welton’s grandson, also named James Welton, (far right) attended the Homecoming ceremonies at Albion, along with his daughter, Tracie Welton Burnett; her husband, Freeman Burnett; and Birmingham (Ala.) school superintendent Wayman Shiver (at rear). The senior Welton had served as a school principal in Birmingham, and an elementary school there was named in his memory. For both me personally and the College more generally, this connection between Welton and Albion has become tangible,” says Sacks. “I feel tremendously honored to be able to share James Welton’s history with his descendants.”

Kids ‘N’ Stuff: An Interactive Experience for Kids opened in downtown Albion in midSeptember. Its entertaining water play exhibit and well-stocked grocery store are especially attractive to young visitors. Over 1,000 people have visited the children’s museum since its opening.

President Peter Mitchell, ’67, and Otis Culpepper, ’70, discuss the early days of Albion’s Black Student Alliance (originally the Afro-American Union) following the Welton dedication ceremony.

Welton’s grandson, James A. Welton, Jr., and his great-granddaughter, Tracie Welton Burnett, along with her husband, attended the ceremonies honoring Welton in September, learning about a grandfather they had never met.

For their part, Gates, Baldwin and Sacks are determined that Welton’s life and accomplishments will not be forgotten. “I want all students to ask, when they see the Welton House, ‘Who was James Welton?’” explains Baldwin. “I want the house to tell [his] story and offer encouragement to students when they feel the road is difficult and lonely. To me, James Welton is symbolic of perseverance and determination.” More information on James Welton and this year’s Distinguished Alumni Awards is given in the Alumni Association News section of this issue.

Washington Post staff writer Renee Schettler raved about the cooking skills of Doug Goudie, ’92, in a July 17, 2002 article on the front page of the Post food section. Entitled “A Little Sugar on Your Steak,” the piece extols a recipe that Doug has perfected for grilled filet mignon: “I watched as [Doug] measured precisely two parts salt to one part sugar and a smidgen of freshly ground black pepper. Then I stood aside as he sprinkled a Lilliputian pinch on each otherwise pristine steak. . . . When wisps of smoke began to curl from the grill pan, in went the steaks. He seared them perfectly, pulled them from the heat and plated them. The steaks bore striking stripes from the grill pan, but they were black, not brown, and the steak itself had an uncharacteristic sheen. He waited the requisite 10 minutes, then spooned the reduced wine sauce expertly on top and near the base of each towering filet. A dollop of potatoes and they were whisked to the table. As we sat down to eat, I faked a smile, scraped the bordelaise sauce to the side and cut a tiny slice. There was nothing sugary about the steak: no saccharin smack or caramel overtone. But that steak was different—and it was one of the best steaks I’d ever tasted.” When he is not playing Alain Ducasse in the kitchen, Doug is a lobbyist for the Automotive Trade Policy Council. Oh, and in case you’d like the recipe, you can reach Doug via e-mail at: dgoudiedc@yahoo.com.

Homecoming 2 0 0 2 D. TRUMPIE PHOTO

Ceremonies and celebrations punctuated the traditional weekend events at Homecoming 2002, Sept. 27-28. The festivities began Friday afternoon with an 80th birthday party for legendary Briton football and baseball coach Morley Fraser and also included the dedication of the new William C. Ferguson Student, Technology, and Administrative Services Building (see cover story of this issue) and the naming of the Black Student Alliance House in memory of Albion’s first black graduate, James Welton, Class of 1904. The Britons shut out Ohio Wesleyan in the Homecoming football game, and won against Olivet in volleyball. The Alumni Awards Ceremony, class reunions and fraternity and sorority open houses also brought many alumni “home” for the weekend. On these and the following pages, you’ll find more details on this year’s Homecoming.

80th birthday celebration for Morley Fraser

Former Hillsdale College coach Frank “Muddy” Waters, a good friend (and former archrival in football), reminisces with Fraser (right) as Greg Lemanski, ’84, looks on.

Over 250 alumni, friends and family crowded the Kellogg Center’s Gerstacker Commons Friday afternoon to celebrate former Briton coach Morley Fraser’s 80th birthday. Fraser led the Britons to 11 league championships, five in football and six in baseball from 1954 to 1972. At the Athletic Hall of Fame dinner Friday evening, Dal Shealy, president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), announced that Fraser had been selected for the FCA’s national Wall of Champions. Fraser served for many years on the board of the Michigan FCA and was also involved in its summer camps for student athletes.

Fraser greets Tom, ’59, and Dorothy Taylor, ’72. Taylor played football for Fraser both at Newberry (Mich.) High School and at Albion, and Taylor eventually succeeded Fraser as Briton head football coach.

Fraser had the honors during the ceremonial coin toss at the Homecoming football game on Saturday.

Albion’s football field is now officially “Morley Fraser Field,” in recognition of Fraser’s many contributions during his 18-year coaching career at the College. The College is continuing to raise funds for an endowment to support maintenance and improvements at the field.

James A. Welton, 1904 James A. Welton was Albion College’s first African American graduate. He came to Albion in 1900 from Mt. Meigs, Ala., where he was born and raised by his parents, Clara and Richard, former slaves and sharecroppers. Before arriving in Michigan, Welton attended the Normal School for Colored Students in Montgomery, Ala. and then served as the assistant principal of the public school for black children in Mt. Meigs. During his tenure at Albion, Welton received a bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate and became well known for his oratorical abilities. He was elected class treasurer during his junior year and periodically wrote articles for the Pleiad and the yearbook. His class also elected him as class orator. He was a member of the debating team and an officer in the Y.M.C.A. After Welton graduated from Albion, President Patterson of the State Normal School, Montgomery, asked him to return to teach math and Latin. Welton also served one year as the school’s football coach. During this time, Welton was the superintendent of the religious school at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church (later to become famous when the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. became the church’s pastor). He moved to Birmingham, Ala. in 1908 with his family and began working at the Union Mutual Aid Insurance Co. In 1910 he was promoted to the position of auditor and remained there for five more years. He was then elected principal of the State High School. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson appointed him postmaster in western Alabama where he lived until 1922. At that time, school officials in Birmingham persuaded him to return and accept the position of principal of the Patterson School. Welton died in 1929, after six months of ill health. In 1959, the Welton Elementary School opened in Birmingham. The integration of the city’s school system, however, led to the closing of the Welton School in 1969. In 1905, Welton married Mary Louise Campbell Jenkins. They raised five children.

He earned a pair of individual league titles on the track, winning the 120yard high hurdles in 1953 and 1954. During an 18-year coaching career, Taylor assisted with the 1967 Wyoming football team that went on to compete in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 1968. Taylor also served for 13 years as an athletic administrator. Now retired, he lives in Alanson.

Teams 1950-51 Men’s Basketball Team The 1950-51 men’s basketball team gave Albion its third MIAA championship under coach Walter Sprandel. The squad surged to the championship by setting a school record and winning its final 13 games. Bob Eggleston was the MIAA’s MVP, and John Porter was the league’s scoring champion. Porter, who scored what was then a school-record 277 points for the entire season, totaled 155 points in 10 league contests. Eggleston averaged 10.9 points in the 10 league games. Dick Allen, who averaged 11.4 points in 10 MIAA games, joined Eggleston and Porter on the 10-man All-MIAA squad. Allen left Albion with the school record for most points in a four-year career (725).

1980 Men’s Track & Field Team In 1980, Albion won the second of five consecutive MIAA track and field championships under coach Dave Egnatuk. The Britons soundly defeated their opponents, as the closest margin of victory in a league dual meet was a 29-point triumph over Hope College. Their dual meet record for the season was 6-0. Boosted by three individual titles and two winning relays, Albion also took first place at

the MIAA championship meet. Tracy Garner leaped 6 feet, 11 inches to win the first of four league titles in the high jump. Dexter Davis emerged victorious in the long jump, while Ron Lessard was the first runner to cross the finish line in the 10,000-meter run. The Britons also won the 440-yard and mile relay events. Other team members included: Dan Armstrong, Pat Blakley, Kenneth Bray, Philip Brewster, James Carr, James Connelly, Alan Gamble, Don Gmelin, Edwin Greenman, Douglas Greer, Andy Harder, Tim Hartson, Martin Hoffmeister, Robert Jones, Mike Jurasek, Pat Kennell, Charles Knoll, Andrew Krafsur, Barry Lonik, Steve Meads, Charles Neilson, Cameron Owens, John Pako, Martin Popp, Steve Radashaw, Keith Roberts, Dennis Rouwhorst, Eric Smith, Mark Smith, Scott Smythe, Doug Treadwell, David VanderKooy, David Vercoe, Richard Vermeulen, and Gary Zavislak.

For the past two years, Salina Baldwin, ’03, has been a woman with a cause: securing longoverdue recognition for Albion’s first African American graduate, James Welton, Class of 1904. Her quest came to a successful close at Homecoming 2002 with the renaming of the Black Student Alliance House in Welton’s memory and with his honoring as one of this year’s Distinguished Alumni Award recipients. Welton was a trailblazer in many ways, and, in Baldwin, he has a worthy successor. A chemistry major, she is a founding member and the current president of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. As an intern in the Multicultural Affairs Office, she is

assisting with a new initiative to help minority high school students from the area prepare for college. She is also a past president of the Black Student Alliance and a member of the President’s Advisory Committee on Multicultural Affairs. “Albion has allowed me to develop my leadership skills and encouraged me to want to know more about my culture and myself,” Baldwin says. “Students’ voices are important, and we can truly make an impact on Albion College if we take the initiative.”
