t’s wonderful to be able to win on the worldwide stage,” says Peter Randall, head of CHA’s Technology Department and chief volunteer-mentor for the CHASS robotics team, which captured 3rd-place overall at the recent FIRST World Robotics Competition in Atlanta's famed Georgia Dome. “But having the opportunity to work with and compete against the brightest students from around the world is the real payoff for our students.” Not to mention having an opportunity to meet and share ideas with the many engineering superstars who attend this popular event, including Dean Kamen, FIRST founder and inventor of the “personal transporter” the Segway; Woodie Flowers, professor emeritus of mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Dave Lavery, program executive for Solar System Exploration at NASA, whose robots, as Randall likes to point out, are on Mars.

The CHA Story: Chapter 3 by Clark Groome ’60
CHA in a Changing World: 1901 to 1942
As Chestnut Hill Academy was settling in to its home in the Wissahickon Inn in the fall of 1901, Teddy Roosevelt had just assumed the presidency after William McKinley’s assassination. The automobile hadn’t yet replaced the horseless carriage. The Wright Brothers were still a couple of years from their flight at Kitty Hawk. Radio was two decades away. Jazz was not yet king. Baseball wouldn’t play its first World Series until 1903.
ver the next four decades – ending in 1942 when another President Roosevelt, Franklin, was serving an unprecedented third term – CHA, and the world around it, changed dramatically. The country rode the roller coaster of events: World War I, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, and another world war. Chestnut Hill Academy also experienced significant changes that helped shape the school of today. Critical to any school’s success is the person hired to lead it. In 1897 the trustees hired James Lawson Patterson. He came to the school from Union College where he chaired the math department after earlier teaching jobs at the Hill School and Lawrenceville. Patterson, a Lafayette College graduate with an honorary doctor of science degree from Princeton, led the school into the Wissahickon Inn the following year and through an impressive period of change and growth in the first two decades of the 20th century. Patterson’s educational program was “primarily to provide the elements of a liberal training, and secondarily to prepare boys for any American College or scientific school, or for business.” There were two courses of study, Classical (English, Latin, Greek, six years of ancient history, five years of mathematics, and two years of modern languages) and Scientific (where Greek was omitted and additional work in natural science, modern languages, and mathematics was substituted). A boy in Third Form (9th Grade) read Macaulay’s Lays, Longfellow’s Evangeline, Irving’s Allhambra, Franklin’s Autobiography, and Scott’s Lay of the Last Minstrel. The 1901 school catalog included information on physical training and health: ”Regular exercise by means of the usual field sports is required of each boy during the spring and fall, and in the winter season skating, coasting, and hare and hounds are utilized to keep the boys in the open air as much as possible.”
In its first-ever production, CHA’s dramatic club put on Acis and Galatea—“an extravaganza in three acts...a droll mixture of the ancient and modern,” according to The Wissahickon of the time, which may explain the glowering presence of a Native American among a group of cavemen. Apparently this first effort did not discourage the school’s support of future dramatic productions, as the popularity of our current Players can attest.
It is according to The Wissahickon that the first Light Blue/Dark Blue competition took place in the fall of 1908, not as a field day as we now know it, but rather as seasonal competitions. The first contest was a football game played in October. The Dark Blues won 14-13.
ports always play a large role in private schools, and CHA was no exception. Baseball, football, track, and basketball were always available, with tennis, squash, ice hockey (outdoors in those days), soccer, and swimming offered as the boys’ interest required. In those early years, the CHA teams were often quite good, with basketball and football winning championships in both 1914 and 1915.
There is no hard evidence about when the school adopted light and dark blue as its official colors, but it was likely sometime in the middle of the last century’s first decade. As late as 1903 the colors, according to archival records, were brown and gold. The Light Blue/Dark Blue competitions were designed, according to The Wissahickon, “to provide amusement for the boarders on Saturday afternoons.” Once the Blue and Blue competitions were established, they would continue in one form or another throughout the school’s history.
Music and drama were also mainstays of the school’s program. From 1902 to 1938, Charles H. Elwell was in charge of the musical groups, among them a mandolin club, a band, and various singing organizations. Regular performances were given throughout the year. The dramatic group – known as the Sock and Buskin Club—often produced minstrel shows, a popular form of entertainment for the period.
Religion played a major role in the school’s early life. The 1901 school catalogue states that “the school is opened each day by a simple religious service and evening prayers are held at the close of the day.” Boarding boys were required to go church on Sundays at a church of their parents’ choosing.
A major extracurricular development was the appearance, in 1903, of The Wissahickon, the school’s first student publication. A combination student newspaper and literary magazine, it was published monthly and reported heavily on sports. The Wissahickon’s function as a literary magazine was as important as its role as a newspaper. Some of the content was of high caliber but some was in the form of jokes, many of which were even less sophisticated than this one, which appeared in the November 1911 issue: “‘Second former: If they wanted some new chess men, where would they get them?’ ‘Third Former: at the pawn shop, of course.’”
At their meeting on June 6, 1904, the trustees declared that religious teachings “shall be in conformity with the principles and spirit of the Protestant Episcopal Church.” The Episcopal bishop of Pennsylvania was elected board president. An immediate consequence of this action became apparent that fall when it was disclosed that the number of students had declined, in part “owing to the loss of the Roman Catholic boys.”
The Wissahickon also served as the school’s yearbook, with reports on graduation, college choices, and end-of-the-year awards in each year’s June issue. That changed in 1911 when the first edition of The Caerulean appeared. The Caerulean has served as the school’s yearbook ever since.

CHA’s Cadet Corps, formed in ’’. According to that year’s yearbook: “The gravity of the war situation in Europe, the plans of this country for an extensive army, and the possibility of a number of our older boys being called for service, all combined to create a high degree of interest in Military training, when, on the re-opening of the School after the influenza epidemic, the Chestnut Hill Cadet Corps was organized under the direction of Sergeant Minnes, late of the Canadian Field Artillery.”
Charles H. Landreth ’29, a student when Patterson retired, said in an oral history interview that “James Lawson Patterson was the heart of Chestnut Hill Academy.”
Students were no longer given options of Classical or Scientific academic tracks. “No boy will be permitted to enter the Sixth Form [12th Grade] who does not have a reasonable chance of graduating with his class or of securing admission to college in September following graduation” warned the 1925 catalog. Now the Third Form read Scott’s Quentin Durward, Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Scott’s Ivanhoe, Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, and masterpieces of British literature.
“This ended an era,” Ruth Parachini reported in the centennial history, “when students had come to the Academy from thirty-two states, the District of Columbia and fourteen foreign countries. Most of the students from outside the United States had come from Central and South American countries, some of them natives of those countries and some of them sons of American families living abroad. Japan, South Africa and Newfoundland were represented. Possibly the most interesting foreign boys were four princes of the royal family of Siam [now Thailand].”
During Hyde’s first year, CHA became a member of the Inter-Academic League. Founded in 1887, the Inter-Ac is the oldest inter-scholastic athletic league in the United States. The 1920s were a time of strong CHA teams, many of which, most notably the 1929 baseball team, won championships. Another major, and long lasting, achievement of Hyde’s tenure was the establishment in 1927 of The Campus Lantern, which became the campus newspaper, a function that The Wissahickon had previously served.
Boarders, who on average made up one-third of the school, had their own activities, some of which were sanctioned, such as trips to Center City for concerts, plays, and other events. Faculty entertained boys in their homes, as did the parents of the day students.
Some activities, however, were not sanctioned. In the summer 1989 edition of CHA News faculty member Paul Hines described some of the shenanigans as written by former boarders. One boarder revealed that the prohibition on radios in the 1920s led several students to cut holes in their rooms’ floors so that they could conceal their radios and then, late at night, listen to the music broadcasts of the day.

It was on his watch that the first major change in the nature of the school occurred. With enrollment falling in the boarding department, the University of Pennsylvania’s Dr. E.D. Grizzell made a survey of the academy in 1933-1934. The report found that the Depression was responsible for the diminution in boarding enrollment. It also found that the expenses to run that division continued to be, in the report’s words, “disastrously high.” Grizzell recommended that the school become a country day school and that it should try to gain more support in the community, a decision that the school immediately implemented.
Patterson was succeeded by Theophilus Rodgers Hyde. A Yale graduate, Hyde came to CHA from the Hill School and was hired because of his boarding school experience.

In the descriptions of the named athletic fields, the fact that Corning Pearson ’30 had, in the mid-’90s, funded the complete rehabilitation of the school’s varsity baseball field was omitted. That field is currently known as “The Corning Pearson Varsity Baseball Field.
A New Hampshire native, Fall graduated from Dartmouth in 1905, taught for one year in Vermont, and then came to CHA in 1906. He was a popular Latin and history teacher and successful coach who was ripe to take on the challenges the school was facing as it entered its fourth decade in the Wissahickon Inn. It didn’t take the board long to see they had the right man. In January 1931, he became the permanent headmaster, a job he would hold until 1936 when he opted to return to teaching fulltime.
After 26 years as headmaster, Dr. Patterson stepped down in 1923, although he would remain on the faculty as a math teacher for three more years. During his time at the helm, the school increased its enrollment from 57 to almost 300.
First Light Blue/Dark Blue contests held
The error was in the description of the baseball coaching duties for Percy Wales and Dan Charles. It was reported mistakenly that Charles coached the 11-year-olds and Wales the 10-year olds. In fact, Charles coached the 12s and Wales the 11s.
In the Chestnut Hill Academy history’s second installment (Channels Volume 3, Issue 1, Spring ’09) there was an error and a significant omission.
Hyde departed Chestnut Hill in 1930 to become the headmaster of the Lakeside School in Seattle, Washington. The trustees – at the urging of the students, faculty, and parents—selected longtime faculty member Gilbert Haven Fall to be acting headmaster. This was the first time, but not the last, that a headmaster was chosen from within the school.
During the Patterson years, the world around the academy changed rapidly. With war on the horizon, a cadet corps and rifle team were established. During what was known as the Great War, students raised over $1 million for the Liberty Loan drives. Thirteen CHA alumni lost their lives. In their honor, the Alumni Gold and Silver Medals were established, awards that today are still considered the school’s most prestigious.
The fire escapes were the means of other-than-fire escape from school after curfew. “The fugitive’s destinations would include Foster’s, an ice cream and soda fountain store at the corner of Germantown and Willow Grove avenues, or the movie theatre in Germantown.”
How great it is to have eagle-eyed readers!
The school was thriving academically when, on October 29, 1929, the stock market crashed. The 1930s Depression brought CHA’s tenuous financial circumstances, which for years had been masked by the largesse of the Houston family, to a crisis and precipitated the most difficult period in the school’s history.
On two occasions, in 1904 and 1917, the Houston Estate, managed by Samuel F. Houston, an Episcopal Academy graduate, offered to finance a merger of the two schools. The first effort foundered when Episcopal could not abide the requirement that the students attend St. Martin’s. In the second instance there was a vehement reaction from students, alumni, and parents against the surviving institution’s name not being Chestnut Hill Academy.

are expected to conform to the school regulations in regard to chapel and church services.” Nevertheless the church ties remained strong. Sunday Services were conducted at the neighboring Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, and Episcopal bishops continued to serve as board president until 1930.
Another boarder remembered that “Bat-chasing, the flying furry variety, became very competitive.” Charles Knowles ’30 recalled that evening study hall was disturbed when a shot put was rolled down the steps from the third floor. Knife and dart throwing were also popular.

When Fall resigned to return to teaching, Frederic E. Camp, a Princeton graduate, was engaged as headmaster, a job he held for only three years, resigning in 1939 after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. For all the financial challenges the school faced, not everything was dreary. The sports teams continued to do well, and the students’ social activities were plentiful. Major big bands of the era – Erskine Hawkins, Bunny Berigan, and Harry James among them – came to the school for its proms. But the school continued to suffer financially. The Great Depression was in full swing. Europe was at war. Hitler was on the move. In order to preserve the school, the trustees turned not to an educator but to a local businessman, Charles Platt, Jr. Platt had attended CHA as a member of the class of 1921. He left to go to St. Mark’s School. After attending Harvard, he graduated with honors from the University of Virginia in 1927, where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He always had an interest in education so when the trustees called, he left a partnership in a successful insurance business to lead his alma mater during a very difficult financial period. The first major change he worked on was the conversion of the academy from a privately owned institution to a public, nonprofit school. CHA continued to be the beneficiary of the Houston and Woodward families’ generosity. The land and the buildings belonged to them, but they never interfered in the school’s day-to-day affairs. When the school was a proprietary corporation, fundraising was difficult since none of the contributions would be tax deductible. In what was described at the time as the Houston Estate’s “most generous gift of all,” it deeded the property and the buildings to the school, allowing it to reincorporate as a nonprofit institution in the Commonwealth in 1940.
A 1934 survey conducted by a consultant from the University of Pennsylvania found the costs of operating a boarding school during the Depression to be “disastrously high” for CHA. This led to a major turning point in the school’s history when it shifted from being a boarding to a country day school. Among the school’s more illustrious international boarders who lived on the third floor were Princes Noi Arujna Svasti (left) and Prasob Sukhsvasti, from Siam (now Thailand).
During the negotiations surrounding the charter’s reincorporation, CHA’s counsel was Joseph S. Clark ’18. The master overseeing the proceedings was Hugh D. Scott, Jr. Both men would go on to serve Pennsylvania in the United States Senate: Clark, a Democrat, from 1957 to 1969; Scott, a Republican, from 1959 to 1977. Scott was the Republican leader in the Senate during the Watergate scandal and played a central role in convincing President Richard M. Nixon to resign in August 1974. The school’s 1941 catalog explained that “The Academy is fundamentally a college preparatory school. The Upper School course of study, however, is designed not only to provide thoroughly for College Entrance Board requirements but moreover to furnish a broad cultural secondary education, and an approach to a disciplined useful way of life.” Now the Third Form boys’ course of study in English included Thurber, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Tale of Two Cities, and As You Like It.
Notes about Chapter 3
The reincorporation helped, but with the coming of the war in Europe and the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, financial conditions went from bad to worse. Faculty members left to go into the military, as did some Upper School students. The minutes of a special board meeting held August 26, 1942, include the following:
An institutional history relies heavily on the governing board’s minutes. CHA’s board minutes for the period from 1908 to 1938 have been lost. Fortunately, an oral history conducted by CHA faculty member Paul Hines in 1986 provides a treasure trove of information that helps fill the gap.
Whereas the participation of our country in the war has called to the colors many of our patrons and many of our faculty, and whereas economic uncertainties resulting from the war have caused the withdrawal of students from the Upper School, so that the remaining Upper School enrollment is deemed insufficient for the continued efficient operation of this department, be it resolved that for the duration of the war the educational span of the Academy be limited to the kindergarten and first eight grades; and be it further resolved that due notice of the elimination of grades nine to twelve be at once given to the parents of all boys enrolled in the school.
Hines interviewed alumni and faculty members past and present, exploring the history of the school from the 1920s through the 1980s. The central person in the project was Charles H. Landreth ’29 who attended CHA from Lower School through his senior year. After graduation he remained active in the alumni association, sent his two sons to the school, served as business manager from 1962 to 1978 and as archivist from 1978 until he retired in 1989. Charlie’s stories and memories, and those of others interviewed for this project, are invaluable to this history, especially for the period of the 1920s and 1930s, a time of great change for CHA.
At about that time Platt also announced that he would leave the school to enter the United States Navy. As drastic as all this change was, Parachini reports that “At this critical time Chestnut Hill Academy had three strong assets[:] a small group of parents and friends who believed that the community needed the school; an undiscouraged faculty; and Robert A. Kingsley. Mr. Kingsley had been teaching modern languages at the Academy for seventeen years. In December, 1942, he was appointed Headmaster.”
Other sources used include the school’s Quarter Century Review, published in 1921, Ruth Parachini’s 1961 centennial history, and the student publications: The Wissahickon, which was founded as a student newspaper as well as a literary magazine in 1903, and The Campus Lantern, the school newspaper founded in 1927. And a note about style: At the beginning of the last century several English words were rendered differently than they are today. Among those relevant to Chestnut Hill Academy’s history are headmaster, baseball, basketball, and football. In the school’s printed material from the early 1900s headmaster is written seven different ways: Head Master, HeadMaster, Head-master, Headmaster, head master, head-master and headmaster. “Baseball” “basketball” and “football” are also seen in varying forms. Baseball, for example, is either base ball, base-ball or baseball. For purposes of this history the modern form – i.e. “headmaster,” “baseball,” “basketball,” and “football” – will be employed except in direct quotes, when the word will appear as it did in the source material.
With these three assets, Chestnut Hill Academy would eventually emerge from the devastations of depression and war. The members of the Mandolin Club.

CHASS TEAM 1218 AT THE ATLANTA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
This year Team 1218 invited a number of its local competitors to test their robots on CHA's field. The team has also been mentoring students from a local Catholic high school, providing them with parts, advice, and even the opportunity to field one of 1218's prototypes in a competition where, says Randall not unproudly, the other team "beat us with our own robot!" While it's great to be a winner and come home with a trophy, this is not the prime motivator for students to join a robotics team. They seem to enjoy the rewards of building the bot as much as the competitions themselves. "It's fun for the mentors as well," adds Rob Ervin, Jr. "I love working with the kids and seeing them figure out the really hard problems."

After six intense and exhausting weeks, the new robot is given its final test, then packed up and shipped off to the first of several regional competitions where the creativity and engineering prowess of each team are tested against those of hundreds of other teams.
Gearing Up for the Future Continued from page 1
Research by FIRST has found that students who participate in robotics are “more likely to attend college, obtain internships, achieve postgraduate degrees, and volunteer in their communities than counterparts who do not.” They are also eligible for a growing number of college scholarships that recognize the invaluable skills that students involved in the program are acquiring. “I’d challenge anybody to find another program that offers such a broad range of life lessons to kids,” says Jono Frank, president of Philadelphia-based Metal Edge, International, Inc. and parent of recent graduate Charlie Frank, last year's robotics team leader. "Meeting deadlines, working within constraints, visioning and planning, analyzing costs, working in teams, and forming strategic alliances— these are just some of the skills that students learn when they think they’re just building robots," Frank adds. Building the Bot So how does a robot get built? It all starts with the game. Each year, over the winter holiday, the members of Team 1218 gather with dozens of local schools along with thousands of other students and mentors from around the world to listen to a livestream videocast from FIRST headquarters outlining the rules for the game in which the robots will compete. Each year the rules of the game, the nature of the activity the robots will have to perform, and therefore the design of the robot change dramatically. One year it may be climbing stairs, another, tossing a large ball over a pole. Last year it was picking up and tossing balls into an opponent's trailer. At the end of the announcement, a basic parts kit is distributed to each team. The kit can be enhanced as the teams see fit as long as the final robot does not exceed the strict weight and size limitations set by the game. The teams can also use whatever external help and resources they can access, much as in real-world market competition. Another limitation is time. Beginning from the day of the game announcement, which takes place simultaneously across the world, teams have six weeks to conceive, build, test, and ship their robot to the first regional competition. "It's a feverish process," says Rob Ervin, Jr., Middle School math teacher and longtime robotics mentor. Ervin, who describes himself as the "chassis guy," is responsible for translating the various features the team wants in its robot "into a viable hardware platform." "We spend the first week just putting out ideas," says Ervin's son, also Rob. "No idea is too ridiculous. We discuss what features might work and how they would fit together. Then we take a team vote on which ideas we want to move forward."
The next step is to build a prototype, sometimes two if the team has more than one concept it wants to test. This makes for a very busy few weeks. While most students are on spring vacation, the robotics team is at school burning the midnight oil. "It's fun staying out and working late. It's high stress but fun," says rising senior Gordon Anthony, official operator of the school's $15,000 computer-operated milling machine recently donated to the school. Students pick their roles on the team based on interests and capability. Jeffrey Ng, the youngest member of the team, is happy doing programming." Ng, who says he chose CHA in part because of its robotics program, worked this year with Labview, an industry-standard programming software. Next year he hopes to program in Java. Ervin, Jr., builds and serves on the drive team that operates the bot during competitions. He has also played the role of "human player," a feature that FIRST builds into all its games to emphasize the importance of chance and the human element in science and engineering. Then there are the scouts. Students attending the competitions who are not driving or working the pit are usually checking out the competition to find likely partners. The competitive rounds are always played in teams of two or three. Teams are initially assigned arbitrarily by FIRST; in later rounds teams can pick their partners. "When it comes time to pick your team, you have to know who will work well with each other," advises Gordon Anthony. "You look for teams that complement yours. Are they good at pick up, shooting, autonomous mode? Do they have a good human player? We fill out evaluation forms then enter the data into the computer, rank it according to how important it is, and weight the scores to help us decide." Values as Well as Victory
And while some teams may appear to have advantages over others, in terms of access to resources or partnerships with large corporations, this doesn't seem to bother the young men and women of Team 1218, who understand that winning is only part of the point of these games. "It's a great feeling to do well in the competitions," reflects the young Rob Ervin, "but it's an even better feeling knowing we did it ourselves."

While the competition at the games can be intense, there is also an amazing spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship observes Randall. He attributes this to the principles of coopetitionTM and gracious professionalismTM, terms coined by founders Dean Kamen and Woodie Flowers, that underlie the FIRST program. "FIRST wants kids to experience the excitement and challenge of competition but also the value and benefits of cooperation," explains Randall. "And the kids have really embraced these expectations. They love doing the right thing."

Sports Wrap BASEBALL (Coach Stan Parker) The 2009 baseball season saw continued outstanding success for the team, which finished with a 22-7 record. This was the fifth consecutive season of 20 or more wins. The team was ranked throughout most of the season by the Philadelphia Inquirer. In addition, ESPN’s publication listed the team 3rd in the region (which includes NY, NJ, DE. VA, MD, and DC) and USA’s high school sports publication listed CHA 32nd in the nation. Seniors Brandon Sady, Steel Russell, Jon Kuneck, and Sean Morrison led the way with Sady finishing the year with a .544 batting average and a .655 on-base percentage. He also led the mound staff, striking out 83 batters in 64 innings. Senior Steel Russell set the school RBI record with a career 92 (32 in 29 games in 2009) and also the school record for triples with 12. Russell also added 11 home runs to his career. Kuneck filled multiple roles pitching and playing the outfield and hit .321 in league play. Morrison played several key roles during the season and led in his dedication to the team. Both Russell and Sady earned First Team All Inter-Ac spots. Juniors Jon McAllister, Tom Devlin, Brian Dones, and Erik Hubbard all made contributions as well. McAllister now holds the career hit record for CHA with 121 hits through his junior year. Jon was named a high school All-American by Collegiate Baseball publications. He was selected to the First Team All Inter-Ac while Tom earned Honorable Mention recognition. Sophomore Nick Boyle, who earned the most improved player award, started the season on the JV team but by the end of the season was a regular starter in the outfield, playing all three outfield spots. Nick was named to the Second Team All Inter-Ac. Freshmen Matt Primavera, who also earned Second Team all Inter-Ac recognition, Dan Hull, and Sam Feirson all made major contributions to the team. Next season should see a continued strong program. Besides those mentioned, sophomores Nick Barile and Greg Kozemchak, junior Ed Trocky, and 8th grader Tim Menninger provide a good nucleus. This year’s JV team will add some key players, and several incoming students hold the promise of being good baseball players.
CREW (Coach Steve McGuin) This season we had a roster of 27, with eight novice rowers. We fielded many boats in the Manny Flick series, the lead-up to later medal races. The Novice Double (Laddy St. George and Griffin Horter) went undefeated in the Manny Flick series and was Gold Medalist in both the City Championship and Dr. White Regatta (novice only series). Laddy even stepped up to the Varsity Quad event for the Stotesbury Cup Regatta, to fill in for an injured member of the team. The team, which included seniors Sam Bissell, Buck Wolters, and Eric Herrera, placed 4th in the finals. The Varsity Double (Donald Leatherwood and Marty Schardt)—a boat formed very late in the season—was Gold Medalist at the NJ State Championship Regatta and in the Philadelphia Championship series. This boat was able to make the finals in the Stotesbury and Nationals, but placed 4th, just out of medal range. The Junior Quad (Ethan Wang, Brendan Spearing, and John and Gordon Anthony) placed 4th in all in the medal series—a very competitive event. I expect big things from this boat next year. This was the first time in five years that CHA was able to place three boats in the finals of the premier sculling events of the Stotesbury Cup Regatta.
GOLF (Coach Jim Talbot) CHA golf finished 2-8 in the Inter-Ac, winning its last two matches over PC and GA who had both beaten us earlier in the season. The young team, with no seniors, gained valuable experience and improvement and will be in the hunt for the title in 2010. Junior Ed McCrossen, team cap-
tain, made First Team All-Interac, and sophomore Jack Russell made Second Team.

Profiles in Leadership A Sound Start at CHA: Rick Bauder ‘73 by David Cantor ‘73 During 11th grade—back when it was called Form V—Rick Bauder, Class of 1973, approached Headmaster Nathaniel Saltonstall with a creative proposition: “Look, I said, the Audio-Visual Department no longer has a manager, and in sports, I mostly sit on the bench. How about if I meet my athletic requirement by managing CHA’s audio-visual services?”
At school, Rick hauled equipment to CHA classrooms, assemblies in the chapel, plays, and Creative Expression Night in the Woodward Gym—wherever his services were required. Sometimes he was assisted by Tim Brown ’74. “I might not have gotten the same physical exercise as running laps on the soccer field,” says Rick, “but I certainly had some workouts, and the job involved considerable teamwork.”
So began the one-man operation that streamlined and enhanced many CHA events and eventually transformed itself into Bauder Audio Systems, Inc. Headquartered in a 21,000-square-foot office/warehouse facility at 1196 Easton Road in Horsham, Pennsylvania, Bauder Audio employs Rick, the owner, and 15 others. The leading audio company in the region, Bauder Audio’s “resumé” includes campaign events for John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama and many other political rallies; Temple University graduations; and concerts by The Beach Boys, Huey Lewis, Tower of Power, The Lettermen, and countless others from the Atlantic City Casinos to Philadelphia’s major performing venues, and beyond. Not to mention CHA’s own Lalapalooza event in the Albert Conkey Center for the Performing Arts on May 30, 2009, when several members of the classes of 1968, 1969, and 1970 rocked the house with guitar, bass, drums, and vocals.
“It’s all about serving people and helping them serve each other,” he philosophizes. “On the one hand, you’ve got the venue with its stage and seating setup, power sources, acoustics, insurance, and liability concerns. On the other hand, you’ve got speakers or performers needing to sound their best—on time, with no unwanted distractions, no one tripping over cables, no one having to keep Rick Bauder ’73, founder and CEO of Bauder asking for more or less volume. You Audio Systems, Inc. then and now. nail everything down by communicating effectively with all concerned—a skill definitely honed by my CHA education. And of course the audience must have a pleasing experience. As the motto goes: You’re only as good as your last show, and the public holds you to it.”
A tour of Bauder Audio looks at times like a fine-guitar museum, with Martins and Taylors to meet professional players’ acoustic-instrument needs, and Les Pauls and Fender Stratocasters for rockers traveling light. At other times it looks like a comprehensive drum and percussion store, with more pedals, cymbals, brushes, and sticks than the layperson might think could be designed, all neatly organized in shelves and cubbyholes. The famed Hammond B3 organ is also represented. Then there are the massive speakers, scaffolds to position them, amplifiers and cables to deliver sound, and monitor speakers so musicians can hear what they’re doing. Bringing all this equipment together so people can communicate and express themselves in large spaces doesn’t happen by magic. Someone has to transport it, carry and wheel it in, and set it up. Someone has to coordinate it. That’s Rick Bauder.
Rick’s dedication to service and leadership informs everything he does. With his employees, Rick takes a calm, instructive approach, his goal being to empower individuals to work as effectively and professionally as possible, developing their capabilities to their full potential.
In 1971, while still at CHA, Rick began his future career on a modest scale. “I had my own beginnings of a sound system, and CHA had a couple of reel-to-reel Sony tape recorders, a 16-millimeter movie camera, a small selection of microphones, slide and film projectors and screens.” Since 1969 Rick had been managing the sound for a local rock cover band called Catch, which got students from CHA, Springside, and other schools hopping to “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Sunshine of Your Love,” and other great songs at St. Martins Church, Springside School, and other venues. Catch members had their own equipment, which Rick maintained and operated, gaining knowledge for his CHA responsibilities.
“It’s like when you wear the CHA uniform you represent the school and you want people thinking highly of your school and your friends. The staff wears the Bauder Audio logo. Experience shows that when I treat my people right and teach the right values, everyone gains. Workers enjoy their work, do a good job, and make a good impression; I find the work personally rewarding; the venue and the performers get what they pay for if not more; and Bauder Audio gets more business.”
Last Issue’s Mystery Photo
Thanks to CHA faculty Janet Giovinnazzo and Jim Wise, Jim’s wife Karen, Peter MacBride ’00, and sibling Neil Cooch ’95 for demystifying last issue’s Mystery Photo. Both Karen and Peter identified the young man with the cap in the back as Scott Kelly, for whom we have no other information.

Neil Cooch ’95 writes: “Hey, that’s my brother! Chris left CHA after 8th grade, but this was from junior school. I showed him the picture and he said it was from Stone Soup. He laughed. The other guys are Simon Wise and Andy Kucer.” Faculty member and father Jim Wise adds: “In case no one has already claimed it, the Mystery Photo is my son Simon Wise and Chris Cooch, best friends back then. Mrs. Cooch was the receptionist for years.”

CHA trustee Lisa Gemmill has served as its chair for the past seven years, following Ken Croney who helped establish the society. Through the 11 years both of these leaders helped to guide our thinking about how best to honor this very generous and important group of individuals through forums, personal appeals, and thank yous, and most recently with the inception of LeadershipLive. Since its founding, the amount of Annual Fund supported at this level has steadily grown from $152,000 to $498,000 this year. As Lisa leaves the Board of Trustees and her role as Leadership Society chair, we take this opportunity to thank both her and Ken for their wonderful work and commitment on behalf of the Leadership Society. Under their guidance this group has grown from 78 donors to 169 and is responsible for 73% of the total funds raised. We could not enjoy the success we celebrate today without this outstanding group of committed donors. As we embark on 2009-10 school year, it is with great honor that we welcome Suzette Hearn as the next chair of the Leadership Society. She looks forward to welcoming our Leadership Society members at the special functions planned to recognize the role of leadership donors in helping CHA continue to move forward as an exceptional educational community. Suzette is a CHA trustee, a member of the Educational Policies Committee and the Design Committee for the Building the Future Campaign. She and her husband, Peter, have two sons: George, who just graduated from CHA this past spring, and Jamie, who will be entering 10th grade this fall, and a daughter, Louise, who will be a senior at Springside this fall. We welcome Suzette’s assuming the leadership position so ably filled by Lisa and Ken and look forward to working with her on new ideas of how to build our leadership group and celebrate the generosity and commitment to Chestnut Hill Academy that each member represents.

Class Notes 1930s 1934 Stu Heist writes, “Unhappily for me, fly fishing for trout and salmon are out. Also flower and vegetable gardening. My 92 year old knees have said no to my life, but I am still happy! Especially since I was born and raised in Blue Bell and I am still there.” Jack Holton sent in a note saying “I visited Stu Heist the weekend of class of ‘34’s Reunion. He is well and active taking care of his condo. Sadly, George Brakeley died May 1, 2009 in Florida.”
1940s 1941 Bill Pilling writes, “During my tenure at CHA from 1930 through 1941, I believe a rather significant event occurred in 1940 with the production of the play “Spring Dance” by Philip Barry. The play was produced and directed by David Eichler, Senior English Instructor. What made this event significant was that the cast included seven girls – four from Springside and three from Agnes Irwin. Coeducational private schools as well as coeducational school events were virtually unheard of in 1940 and David Eichler deserves a great deal of credit for his visionary foresight. The four girls from Springside were Sally Strong, Heather Rosenbaum, Anne Garnett, and Annette Riley. The three Irwin girls were Vidal Starr, Helen Holt, and Nancy Duer. The six boys from CHA were Bryce Blynn (sophomore), Gordon Allan and Bill Pilling (juniors), and Ted Zimmermann, Jerry Sullivan, and Isaac Starr (seniors).”
1948 Howard Gowen writes, “My wife, Sheila, and I have been well and I hope all of our classmates also have had a fine year, despite all of the vagaries of the financial markets.”
1950s 1959 Lee Rodgers writes, “I am retired and enjoying my grandchildren. My son John, CHA Class of 1986, has a five year-old son, Ben, and my daughter, Mimi, has twin girls, Taylor and Ella, 18 months.”
1957 Richard Wenzel, M.D. was recently quoted in ‘The New York Times’ concerning his research on the swine flu pandemic. Richard is the chairman of the department of internal medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA and during the 2009 winter season in the Southern Hemisphere, he studied the swine flu virus’s activity in the United States, Mexico, and four South American countries. He observed cases, advised on control measures, and critiqued their data. Richard, a former president of the International Society for Infectious Diseases, said he had observed a broad spectrum of illness: people who experienced few or no symptoms to those who rapidly developed complications and died. An odd but vitally important feature of the new virus that he noted is the lack of fever in a significant proportion of documented cases, although fever is part of standard influenza. Without fever the spread of the virus could be enormously affected, through lack of accurate diagnosis, the underestimating of cases, and the limits on the usefulness of thermal scans to identify people who carry the virus. Epidemiolo-
gists stress the need for rigorous methodology to produce the solid data that is crucial in planning for the return of the virus to the U.S. and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere in the fall.
from across the country to pick up where they left off 40 years ago. Eighteen musicians and singers crowded the stage at the Conkey Center for a reunion concert. Two and a half days of practice and a lifetime of experience. One weekend, one band, one moment. One opportunity to play the music that defined them.”
Frank Leister writes, “My son Eric is now a Wealth Management expert with Morgan Stanley in Atlanta, GA.; son Chip is the owner of EOA Consulting, Inc., a national medical resources recruitment firm in Roswell, GA.; and daughter Jessica is a Realtor and School Teacher in Pawleys Island, GA. I have four grandchildren in Atlanta, three boys and a girl, all born between 2006 and 2008. Me, I’m 35 years a professional numismatist and paper money dealer. In 2007 I moved out of Florida after 48 years there and now live in Harrison, TN, and can wear pants!”
1970 Bill Hall had a longstanding dream - to reunite his CHA music buddies and recapture the magic of playing together one more time. He accomplished that dream and then some on Memorial Day Weekend, with CHA alumni coming from all over the country to rock it out on the Conkey stage once again. The former local band players practiced the music before joining together for two days of rehearsals and sound checks and then wowed the capacity crowd for an amazing day and evening concert. Rug writes, “I want to thank CHA for allowing us to use the Rec and the school employees, who were all great. Participant musicians were: Porter Shimer ’67, Henry Disston ’67, Lee Conrad ’67, Sam Scott ’68, Tom Trapnell ’68, Paul Klinefelter ’69, Carl Norris ’69, Steve Pearson ’69, Rob Pilling ’69, Charlie Thompson ’69, Jay Emlen ’70, Bill Hall ’70, David Lindy ’70, Barry Shannon ’70, Tom Stone ’70, Leslie Hall Matkosky SS ’71, Jim Disston ’73, and Steve Hyson h’04. Rick Bauder ‘73 supplied the sound equipment. It’s a weekend I will cherish forever.” For those who missed it, Bill, and co-organizer Carl Norris, are planning a repeat next year.
1965 Steve Kampmann’s new film Buzzkill, which he directed, was screened at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival – one of the world’s oldest, most influential and prestigious film festivals, held each May at the Palais des Festivals et des Congres, Cannes, France. Pictured below: Steve, left, with Buzzkill’s lead actor, Daniel Raymont, at Cannes. Luke Lohmeyer writes, “I’ve just completed my twentieth year teaching at the United Nations International School, in Manhattan. I still have the travel bug, acquired while teaching in Iran in the ‘70’s and Japan in the ‘80’s. Recent trips include attending conferences in Berlin and Prague, and enjoying vacations in Argentina, Costa Rica, Egypt, and England.”
1966 Chas Landreth recently received a note from Sandy Brown reporting the bad news that he was diagnosed in June with ALS. Sandy added, “I miss you and all of my former classmates very much. You take care and most of all, be well.”

1969 Carl Norris, who along with Bill Hall ’70, organized the fabulous Memorial Day Weekend Alumni Lollapalooza Concert, wrote in to thank CHA for the use of the Conkey Center and added this schoolboy remembrance. “I had a lot of interaction with Mr. Conkey during my years at CHA, and am certain that, as with Leonard Bernstein’s comments about the Beatles, Al would have approved of, and respected, our efforts, if not exactly his preferred genre. I used to sneak into his office and play his cherished harpsichord. One day he caught me playing the Mozart Sonata in C at lightning speed, and rather than chastise me for defaming this very popular piece, he said, ‘Well, Mr. Norris, looks like you’re ready for Liszt.’ He was wrong, but I appreciated the encouragement.” Carl, the director of Head & Neck Surgery at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, and Rug, are planning a repeat band concert for Memorial Day weekend 2010.
Andrew Simon had an amazing ‘small world’ moment this past winter. “I was skiing in Beaver Creek, Colorado with my family and happened to take a day off to go cross country skiing for a change. It had just snowed something like 40 inches and was all fresh snow with virtually nobody around - natural beauty in all its purest form. I was the only one signed up with the instructor/guide, so I had him all to myself. After chatting we realized we had CHA in common. It turns out that my guide was alumnus Alex Spaeth, class of 1986. He had never had a CHAer randomly in his class before. We spent a beautiful afternoon together and Alex would have made Perot Walker proud. In addition to being a master of cross country, he knew everything to be known about the local fauna – each tree, bush, bird, and insect. Although we did not attend CHA at the same time, we reminisced about growing up there and specifically our 6th grade year with Mr. Walker, a remarkable teacher who was still affecting our lives.”
Ross Pilling’s wife, Karen, covered the Memorial Day Weekend CHA Alumni Lollapalooza Concert, at which Ross played in the band. An excerpt: “In automobiles, planes, and on foot, the boys of CHA, now doctors, teachers, managers, musicians, plumbers, and businessmen, came
1973 Rick Bauder writes, “After a successful 35th reunion followed by a post dinner music performance by four of the Class of 1973-myself, Hank Delacato, Dave Cantor, and Steve Killough billed as the ‘Over the Hillers’, we are now rehearsing songs for the 2013 40th party. Never too early to get a headstart.” Hank Delacato writes, “I’m enjoying watching my son Carl, 14, class of 2013, rowing for CHA’s crew team. My daughter Kingsley, 16, SS class of 2010, is thriving at Springside, dancing up a storm, and winning Science Fair prizes about environmental issues. My wife Marcie co-created a video collage about both schools which was used at the Common Ground fundraiser, raising money for common use fields and courts. Every third Thursday, I gather with our ’73 classmates Rick Bauder, Dave Cantor, and Steve Killough to play guitars and sing.”
1978 Renato Rabbi-Baldi writes, “I am pleased to let you know that I have been appointed judge of the Federal Chamber of Appeals of Salta, Argentina, and have therefore left my work as law clerk of the Argentinean Supreme Court. The president of the Supreme Court of Justice will administer the judicial oath to me on Friday, August 14th, at noon. A new period of my life begins, with many new responsibilities. I am very happy about it but also a bit nervous. My wife, Denise, who was delighted to accompany me to the 2008 CHA Reunion, is also facing changes.
