CAMPUS FEATURETTES winning journalist and the author of the national best-sellers Blind Eye, Bloodsport, and Den of Thieves. Stewart accepted the award at an Old Gold Day reception held in his honor, where he had the opportunity to speak with other distinguished alumni, current brothers and interested first-year students. While reminiscing about his days at 912 South Locust Street, he spoke fondly of the friendships formed and challenges faced.

Ball State Brothers with Janette. She recently turned 100 years old.
Ball State Visits Retirement Home This past Valentine’s Day, in participation with the Alpha Chis, we entertained a local retirement home for the fifth consecutive year. While we were visiting the home brothers played games, sang songs, and listened while the elderly reminisced about old times. Brothers gained great insight about their perspective on life.
Behrend Helps Local School We have recently made contact with Richard Mooberry SCAL ’68, who is a principal at one of the local elementary schools. We have been working with him at his school doing service projects such as painting classrooms, hallways, and other school beautification projects. Mooberry has been very helpful by giving us a chance to get our letters out in the community in a positive way.
Bowling Green Dances for Childrens’ Benefit This past March, we participated in the 7th Annual BGSU Dance Marathon. Dance Marathon is a weekend long event aimed at raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network of Toledo, Ohio. Dancers are required to raise $350 and must stay on their feet for the entire 32-hour event. This year we had two dancers, Rob Littel and Adam Friend. We also sent four “moralers” to help dancers stay awake and active. Members raised money by asking friends and family for donations and traveling door to door. Dance Marathon was held March 23-24 in the Student Recreation Center. Last year, Dance Marathon and its participants raised over $274,000 6 ∆X Quarterly Spring/Summer ’02
for the Children’s Miracle Network. The men of Delta Chi had a great time in doing our part to help others in need.
Cornell Project Last fall, we finally undertook a project that had been discussed for quite some time: refurbishing the basement room. Led by Adam Frank, we first cleaned the room, which had been neglected for quite some time, turning it into a pleasing environment. We cleaned and painted the walls, the stairs, and also stained the benches, restoring the room to its past beauty. As a final touch, Mike Singer’s father donated wood that is inlaid with the Delta Chi letters and is the perfect complement to the rest of the room.
Colorado State Colony Helps St. Jude We entered two teams in “Up ’Til Dawn,” a philanthropic event where teams compete to raise as much money as possible for St. Jude’s Hospital. Our teams stayed up all night from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. This symbolizes the time a mother or father would have to stay up with their cancer-sick child. There were 30 teams entered into this event at Colorado State. So far we have pledged to raise $1,500 with donations from friends, family, corporations, and fundraisers. We are well on to our goal of helping children in need of special medical care and treatment.
DePauw Honors James Stewart This fall we bestowed the first annual “DePauw Delta Chi of the Year Award” upon James B. Stewart ’73, a Pulitzer-prize
On April 11, we took part in a philanthropy event at a nearby high school. With the aid of Jose Garcia ’01, we sponsored a scrimmage game between our active members and a team composed of high school students. Greene Central High School did not have a soccer team, but is preparing to enter play this fall. The game was exciting with Greene Central taking a 2-0 lead early in the first half, but team Delta Chi would not bow out easily. Fighting back to tie the score late in the second half, the game ended with a late goal by Greene Central as time was winding down. Even with ninety percent of our active members at the game, we found, as college years add on, that high school students can run all day and never get tired. Students, parents, and faculty attended the game and many expressed their gratitude. With the help of the after school program at the high school, we hope to make this an annual event and avenge a loss.
Fredonia Chapter Celebrates its Tenth Anniversary This past November marked the celebration of our tenth anniversary. We celebrated this great occasion by holding a formal banquet at the Sheraton Four Points Inn. The banquet was attended by many of our alumni and several of our founding fathers. There were speeches given by our “A” Steve Kiernan and former “BB” and Regent, Jim Sturm. Chris Dobson won the Michael Bleecher Standards of Excellence, Brother of the Year Award and highest GPA Award. Andrew Zimmerman took home the Most Improved GPA Award. ABT President Joseph DeFazio was presented the Jim Sturm Alumnus of the Year Award. After the speeches and awards were over the fun soon began.

Georgia Tech Chapter Honors “Bucky”
Illinois’ Fireside Semi-Formal
The end of the fall semester brought not only the end of football and finals but also the end of an era at Georgia Tech. After the final game of the season, Band Director James “Bucky” Johnson, Georgia ’73 set down his baton and retired from his position after 19 years at the school. Johnson will leave a legacy at Tech, being known as the man who revolutionized a music program that once barely existed. In addition to his service to Tech, “Bucky” was highly influential in the early years of the Chapter. He served as our first faculty advisor only eleven short years ago and helped us get to where we are today by lending a hand whenever he could. Before he left, we had a chance to show our thanks by presenting him with a special Distinguished Alumnus Award. Thanks for everything “Bucky”!
On Friday, December 8th the Illinois Chapter of Delta Chi came together for our annual Fireside Semi-formal. The front room was a classic collage illuminated with icicle lights and logs burning on the fireplace. A good 70 members and 15 associates filled the front room dressed in their suits and escorting their dates. For the beginning two hours of the event actives lounged and mingled with other actives and their dates listening to the sweet melody orchestrated by a professional pianist playing the legendary house piano. Later in the evening the pianist departed and the nouveau music blared, and took participants into the wee hours of the night. Thanks go out to Ken Law and Chad Davis for organizing and coordinating the divine event.
Hobart Chapter Connects with Local Community This last fall we made a connection with the local community. Carl Harter coordinated a Halloween Dance/Party for Geneva youth through the local Boys and Girls Club. Roughly 35 children in the age range from 13 to 15 attended. During the party, all of the brothers contributed. Colin Hayes supplied the music while Dan Clinton and Rob Garvey organized a large pool and fooseball tournament. Prizes were awarded to the children who not only won but also showed good sportsmanship. The Boys and Girls Club supplied two chaperones to assist the brotherhood. The two adults were very pleased that younger people were willing to help, as it makes for a better connection with the kids. We plan to continue a relationship with the Geneva Boys and Girls Club, as we are planning a bowling trip this spring. It is our goal that every brother is involved in community service at least once a week. We are doing this in small groups of brothers, but then also plan to band together for bigger projects like cooking meals at the local food shelter. We feel this will not only improve us personally but also will distinguish Delta Chi above the other Hobart Fraternities.
Santa Slides Down Kansas Chapter Chimney For the second Christmas in as many years, the Kansas Chapter house played host to a Big Brothers/Sisters of Lawrence gift exchange. We teamed up with the women of Alpha Delta Pi for this event where over 100 boys and girls paid a visit to Santa and his magic elves at the Delta Chi North Pole. The night’s activities included making Christmas cookies, opening gifts, and playing Nintendo on our big screen TV in the chapter room. The Kansas Chapter was happy to give these great kids the Christmas they all deserved.
To Kent State Communication is Essential
Iowa Chapter Brothers with former Housemother Rachel Trpkosh.
Iowa to Celebrate Its 90th Anniversary Ms. Rachel Trpkosh was the Housemother for our Chapter from 1977 until 1992 and is the Honorary Chairperson for our 90th Annersary Celebration set for October 11-13, 2002.

This will be an event to remember so make sure you are there. Look for your invitation and check our website at www.uiowa.edu/~deltachi for more information.
Communication is essential to running a successful business. The Delta Chi Fraternity is a close brotherhood of college and university men running a successful business. Without communication the business will cease to exist. For the past few years our alumni relations have been poor. We neglected our responsibilities to keep the alumni updated on current situations in the chapter. This past year we have rebuilt our alumni relations and the awards of having our alumni active with us is unbelievable. This past initiation we had over 20 alumni present who actively participated in the whole ceremony. The alumni also planned and delivered a successful retreat the weekend before. Our newly established relationships with our alumni can be attributed to successful communication. With the help of future planning and organization the chapter has constructed an online calendar where both active brothers and alumni can view what events we have planned for the semester. By having a great line of communication we have been able to successfully rush this spring. With the chapter house’s newly installed computer network we are able to help each other plan events. ∆X Quarterly Spring/Summer ’02 7
Louisiana Tech Supports Unity After the devastating effects of September 11th, the country was overwhelmed with a sense of unity. This unity brought the brothers of the Louisiana Tech Chapter together to participate in a flag run across the country. We were in charge of getting the flag from Chourant, LA to Ruston, LA which is approximately ten miles. Our effort was rewarded with a picture of some brothers on the front page of the local newspaper.
MARYLAND TAILGATE This past fall, we held our annual Alumni Tailgate on Homecoming weekend. We had our largest turnout ever, thanks to the success of the Maryland football team and the hard work of our brothers. Approximately fifty alumni returned to College Park for a day full of food, drinks, and a Maryland victory on the football field. Undergraduate brothers had a chance to catch up with last year’s graduates, as well as meet many other alumni.
Miami’s Ongoing Renovations Recently one of our 14 apartment style rooms was completely gutted and remodeled for next year. Work is currently being done on a second room, which will be a replica of the first. Thanks to the hard work of Jim Adams ’69 and several other dedicated alumni, about a year ago we were able to refinance the house and completely remodel our out-dated kitchen. Now one of the rooms has been completely restored, to incorporate today’s building codes and student needs. It is planned to name each remodeled room after a deceased brother of Delta Chi who gave their life in service to our country. One of the rooms has been completely remodeled at a cost of around $10,000. The second one is being started and will be finished before this issue is mailed. The newly adopted ABT has also planned a front addition to the house, which would give members a place to study and socialize as well as to serve as a place to coordinate meetings and events. The new room has had its bathroom changed from bathtubs to showers, and a larger portion of the kitchen wall was removed to give the room a more open feeling. The full size refrigerator was given up for a smaller unit; stoves and ovens were removed and replaced with a two-burner stovetop. A counter was also added to give members an area to eat and do work.
Michigan State Wins Social Responsibility Award Having to conform to new, stricter laws applying to litter and noise violations here at Michigan State, we organized a meeting with the city council and the East Lansing Police Department to help us draft a new risk management policy. Jason Pociask, “A”; Chris Beardslee, “D” and Chris Long, “F”; with the help of the city council and East Lansing Police department, constructed an entirely new risk management policy. Our social responsibility has greatly improved, and at the Greek Excellence Awards Gala we won the Social Responsibility and Risk Management Award.
New Mexico State Alumni Weekend We held our annual alumni reunion weekend in conjunction with the homecoming festivities on campus and Delta Chi’s Founders’ Day. It turned out to be the most successful reunion in the young chapter’s history. Spearheaded by Ben Baldwin and Paul Valdez with the assistance of Mike Meyers ’98, the number of returning alumni exceeded all expectations. Nine gentlemen were able to return to Las Cruces for an event filled weekend of fun and reminiscing. After the Homecoming parade on Saturday morning, a Founders’ Day brunch was held at the house and the chapter awarded Mike Meyers “Alumnus of the Year” for 2001. That afternoon the chapter and all the alumni had the opportunity to witness the New Mexico State Aggies defeat the Idaho Vandals on the gridiron. The undergraduates and alumni enjoyed the weekend immensely, and New Mexico State looks forward to another successful reunion next fall. 8 ∆X Quarterly Spring/Summer ’02
Northern Arizona Sets New Records InIntramurals As usual, our school year started off with great hopes and expectations for the coming year. Little did we know that during the fall semester we’d set new records for our intramural achievements. Of the four major sports, we placed first in soccer and second in football, 3 on 3 basketball and volleyball. We also took first in golf as well as several other minor sports. These accomplishments only reflect on the fraternity intramural bracket. We had wins in several all-campus events as well. Through all of these wins, we were able to start this spring semester roughly 900 points in the lead. We have very promising teams in 5 on 5 basketball, indoor soccer and softball. Weight lifting, golf (again) and several other minors will no doubt be won. This kind of accomplishment in intramurals for us has not happened in nearly a decade so it’s great to be completely back on top again. Intramurals is our greatest brotherhood event and it definitely shows with all of the enthusiasm and support we have during these events.
Halloween and Christmas with Purdue and Head Start In an effort to be more involved with the community and promote brotherhood we spent time with the children of a local Head Start. Head Start is an institution that provides day care and supplemental learning for underprivileged children. Paired up with the ladies of Chi Omega, the men of Delta Chi spent the day there playing games, finger painting, handing out way too much candy, and laughing. Everyone was in costume and the event greatly raised the house moral as well as made a lot of children happy. We were again blessed when the Head Start asked if we could host a Christmas Celebration for the children. Needless to say we were excited and the basement of our house was transformed into a winter wonderland overnight. This time, with the aid of Alpha Chi Omega, we had the 60+ children over to our house. Brothers and the sisters all took part in a secret Santa event - buying and wrapping gifts for every child. A mother of a brother also was kind enough to donate a basket full of stuffed animals. Santa was there to hand out the gifts to each child. Other visitors included his elves, a few reindeer, and even the notorious Grinch. By the end of the day the kids were exhausted; so were we. The whole event cost us just under $100. We urge every chapter to give this philanthropic style a try. You and your chapter can see the difference that you make. Nothing inspires more than the human spirit. We are ecstatic that we were able to give more than money back to our community.
Southern California Shares Christmas Spirit When your parents are in jail and you are in foster care, Christmas may not be the best time of the year. Project Christmas Angel attempts to brighten up the holiday season for these children. For the second year, we participated in the program. We have come to believe that philanthropy doesn’t just mean participating in sorority fundraisers or sending donations to worthy causes, but actually interacting and helping the people they are designed to benefit. To help improve the holiday season for a group of 25 children, the we spent an evening decorating a Christmas tree, painting snowmen and snowflakes on the front windows and hanging stockings over the fireplace in preparation for the event. The children, who ranged in age from three to thirteen, participated in a full afternoon of activities starting with lunch, shooting pool, playing video games and frosting cookies. In addition, the brothers rented an inflatable bounce house for the children to jump around in. The finale for the day was Santa Claus handing out presents to all of the children. For some children who could not attend the event, presents were delivered to them later in the week. This year, expanded the event by including Delta Gamma and Alpha Delta Pi in the activities. The chapter hopes to expand participation in future years to include the entire Greek community.
Southwest Texas Helps the Red Cross In every chapter you always have one or two brothers who plan on having that one philanthropy event that will blow away the campus and the community. At Southwest Texas, Nick Webb, Ruben Ortega and Alex Perez were planning an event of such proportion that it was going to take exactly 110% from the entire chapter to pull it off. But, with the events of 09-11-01 the entire idea was scratched in its last stage in order to help those who were affected. We pulled together on a Sunday night at the house and planned a weeklong event where the students on campus would be able to contribute. Once the week started, more organizations on campus pitched in to provide as many hands as possible to help those people who need it. After the dust had settled, the chapter had raised almost a thousand dollars and provided a Blood Drive for the events. Not only did it provide money for those in need, it helped bring the brothers closer together.
TEXAS WINS CHARITABLE COMPETITION We are proud to announce that we were the top donors in the annual Orange Santa program run by The University of Texas and sponsored by the IFC. Each year the Orange Santa program raises thousands of dollars to buy gifts for underprivileged youth at Christmas time and depends heavily on the Greek community for its funds, and as such has begun a competition among the Greek community to determine the top donor. This year we were the top donor with close to $1000 donated in money, clothing, and toys. The tireless work of our philanthropy chair Kevin Bennett and the dedication of the chapter at large, paid off in terms of not only winning the competition, but also the sense of satisfaction from knowing we were instrumental in helping hundreds of local children have a happier holiday season. We are proud to have helped those less fortunate in the name of Delta Chi. Last fall, we also donated $1000 to the American Cancer Society and gathered over 200 pounds of canned goods for the Capitol Area Food bank in conjunction with our first annual Back to School Charity Concert.
Texas A&M Hosts Alumni Golf Last fall we hosted our first annual alumni golf tournament. We began the afternoon with a BBQ before taking the course where many of the alumni and new active brothers were able to meet one another. Through the excellent work of “E” Carl Thompson and the active brothers we were able to show our alumni a good time. The afternoon was an exciting time where alumni were able to share stories as well as learn new ones from the actives.
Our guest speakers were Ed Martin ’92 and George Guzman ’94, both past “A”s and both very respected in our chapter. The night consisted of a slide show put together by Historian Jay Fritz, the traditional award ceremony, and of course tons of bonding.
Washington Volunteers and Has Fun This fall we volunteered our time to valet cars at the Tennis Challenge Player Party benefiting University of Washington Medical Center breast cancer care and research. The event featured star athletes of several sports and many notable celebrities including Bret Boone and Bill Gates. It was a simple task for us, many of whom had experience in the industry, to bring cars around “on the hop” and we enjoyed being able to help out. While many might think this worthy enough a cause in itself we were surprised at the amount of money we were able to earn from parking the cars. With this fortunate windfall realized, the following day we worked the concession stands at the Seahawks vs. Jaguars football game, thinking it an easy way to perform a single day’s work and earn a significant amount of charitable dollars. The tip money along with money earned by working the concession stands at the game was donated to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of King County. In all, 40 brothers participated in the activities and the amount donated was just over $1000.
Washington State Says “Goodbye” to Jack of All Trades With the end of his third year here at WSU quickly approaching, it’s about time for Mark Schweitzer to move on. For the past two and a half years Schweitzer has served our chapter not only as a live-in advisor and cook, but as our friend, our brother, and at the times when we needed it most, our father. He has rebuilt the computer network in our house, and has helped us when our own computers have given us migraines. He has maintained the integrity of our house and protected the best interest of the chapter. His advice in times of trouble and indecision has proven time and again to be both enlightening and invaluable.
Tri-State Holds Car Wash
Western Ontario Raises Rape Awareness
We continue to improve relations on campus and in the community. We host events welcoming faculty, students, and members of the community on a regular basis. Perhaps our most memorable experience with the community was a car wash that a local restaurant helped sponsor. We decided to host a free car wash asking for donations to send to families of the September 11th tragedy. We began the event around 9:00 a.m. on a Saturday. Business was slow at first, but soon there were more cars than brothers! Members of the community seemed sympathetic to our cause, as donations exceed $250 by late afternoon. The day had been a success, and we rejoiced in its triumph. The donations were mailed along with our heartfelt condolences for those who lost loved ones in the tragedy.
On Tuesday, February 5th, 2002, the Western Ontario (UWO) Colony held a philanthropy event - a karoake night with the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. The purpose of this event was to raise rape awareness amongst students on our campus, as well as money for the London Battered Women’s Advocacy Center. Overall it was a successful event! Many members of the Greek community at UWO supported our fundraiser, as they were informed through an email flyer, color posters, handout flyers and early ticket sales. Serb Jodha, our Webmaster and Rush Chairman, has his own business making posters and other digital imaging services and he volunteered his time and efforts to help with the poster and flyer promotion. “F” Graham Scully had the nightclub he manages print and donate 500 tickets for us to use for the event. At the end of the event several hundred dollars were raised and donated to the London Battered Women’s Advocacy Center. Other philanthropy events have been held to serve the London community this school year. Details of these events and other interesting information about our group can be seen online at www.deltachiuwo.com.
Virginia Tech Celebrates its Tenth Anniversary For this very special occasion our chapter had its Spring Formal event at the Marriott of Baltimore, Maryland’s inner harbor. We had an outstanding level of alumni support and attendance.

Charles T. Manatt – Farmer, Lawyer, Politican and Diplomat By Aaron Otto, Kansas State ’98
hen you look at the accomplishments of Charles Manatt, Iowa State ’58, you see a resume that could easily take five or more individuals to collectively match. During the past forty years, Manatt has been a farmer in Iowa, a banker in California, an attorney in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., a political activist serving as the national chairman of the oldest political party in the country, and a diplomat in the Dominican Republic. Through all of his adventures he still draws back on his experiences and the values he learned as a Delta Chi. “I meet Delta Chi members all over and you seem to kind of click when you realize that you are fraternity brothers,” Manatt said. When asked how he balances all of these different experiences, Manatt said he does it through a supportive, great wife, Kathy. “Kathy is from the same area and we have similar life experiences.” Another secret to Manatt’s success is “bringing aboard quality people, a team that you can nurture to achieve the goals of an organization.” Manatt has been a living embodiment of the 10 basic expectations of a Delta Chi since the time he earned a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University in 1958. During the 50’s, the ISU Delta Chi Chapter had about 40-50 brothers including many 24-and 25- yearolds who had returned from the Korean Conflict to finish their degrees. “It was the closest thing to 10 ∆X Quarterly Spring/Summer ’02
providing communal living and was a great learning experience,” Manatt said. “You learned a lot from the big boys (the Korean Veterans), to see their take on life. The house had a great balance between fun on the weekends and a serious study house.” Born in Chicago, Manatt’s family moved to Audubon, Iowa, when he was a child. Manatt grew up on the family farm, which was 320 acres, and has since added additional farm land resulting in a 3,400 acre property that he still maintains today growing corn, soybeans and raising cattle. Manatt had been interested in politics since his time in high school. He ran for pledge class president when he joined the fraternity as a freshman and lost the election. The next year he ran for Chapter “A” and using the lessons he learned from his last defeat was elected as a sophomore. During his junior year, he was elected Student Body President. Manatt said, “You could always count on the unconditional support from the house.”
Charles T. Manatt, Iowa State ’58
his practice on banking and financial services. He later co-founded the First Los Angeles Bank and served as its Chairman from 1973-89. He is also a former President of the California Bankers Association.
Following his graduation from ISU, Manatt attended the University of Iowa in Iowa City, home to Delta Chi Headquarters. He attented a few chapter activities at Iowa, however he left the university when he was called to serve as an officer in the U.S. Army.
Throughout his career, Manatt has been involved in local, state and national politics. In 1992, he cochaired the Clinton/Gore campaign. He is a former chairman of the Western States Conference and the party’s National Finance Council. During Republican Ronald Reagan’s second term as governor, Manatt was elected chairman of the California Democratic Party. During his tenure as state Democratic Party Chairman, he helped the party return to the Governor’s mansion as well as make other gains around the state. Following the 1981 election of former California Governor Reagan as President, Manatt was elected Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Upon completion of his time in the Army, Manatt attended The George Washington University School of Law in Washington, D.C., and earned a J.D. in 1962. In 1965, he cofounded Manatt & Phelps focusing
During Manatt’s tenure as DNC Chairman from 1981-85, the party built it first headquarters’ building (which it still occupies today), modernized its computer and communication equipment and
became more focused on serving the needs of the state parties. At the 1987 New Orleans Delta Chi International Convention, Brother Manatt was a recipient of the Delta Chi of the Year Award for his success and involvement in both the private and public sectors, along with former Health and Human Services Secretary and Governor Dr. Otis Bowen. From the late 1980’s through the late 1990’s Manatt turned his attention to foreign diplomacy and became the founding chairman of the National Democratic Institute. He also served as Vice Chairman of the National Endowment for Democracy, as Chairman of the International Foundation for Election Systems and as a board member for the Center for Democracy. All of these organizations focused on establishing elections and building democracies for former communist countries.
While in the Dominican Republic, Ambassador Manatt was praised for his leadership. He advocated free trade between the United States and Caribbean and Central American nations, and he urged American and Dominican organizations to support education, health and housing programs. “The Dominican Republic had some very challenging issues relating to sustainable farming,” Manatt said. “I did a lot of educating of the State Department about farming issues. I still plan on remaining involved with the DR.” Dominican President Hipolito Mejia and Foreign Minister Hugo Tolentino bestowed on Ambassador Manatt the Medal of Duarte, the country’s highest diplomatic honor. Today, Manatt still has many passions and unfinished dreams. He is a supporter of education issues by serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of The George Washington University. He is continuing his involvement in the
“I meet Delta Chi members all over and you seem to kind of click when you realize that you are fraternity brothers.” President Clinton appointed Manatt to the post of Ambassador to the Dominican Republic. He served from 1999 to 2001. “I received a surprise phone call from the White House in December 1998-at the time when we were bombing Iraq, the House of Representatives was impeaching the President, and t h e House Speaker-to-be was resigning,” he said. “They asked me to serve in this position because of the upcoming election in the Dominican Republic. I talked with my family and we all agreed that it was the right opportunity to serve.”
foreign arena by participating in the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations. Politically, Manatt is staying very active in supporting candidates, including his home state’s first Democratic governor in thirty years, Tom Vilsak, as he runs for re-election in 2002. He also is working on economic development to support rural areas such as his hometown of Audubon, Iowa, by starting a bed and breakfast and sportsmen’s lodge. “Perhaps someday we will be able to provide a stipend for a
writer in residence to capture Midwest life,” Manatt said. Manatt also serves on the Boards of the Wesley Foundation, the Mayo Foundation and the National Legal Center for the Public Interest. He is a past Chairman of the Greater Washington Board of Trade’s International Business Council and a former member of the Boards of Directors for GTE California (now Verizon), Federal Express and Comsat. He also served on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Performing Arts Council; as Chairman of the Board of Counselors of the University of Southern California School of Public Administration; on the Board of Governors of the UCLA Foundation; on the Iowa State University Foundation; and as Chairman of the Board of Visitors of the Duke University Public Policy School. Currently Manatt is creating a new global strategies consulting firm with former Congressman and Ambassador James R. Jones. The mission of Manatt Jones consulting will be to develop and implement strategies to expand their clients’ businesses and facilitate their effective competition in global markets. Despite all of these activities, Manatt still returns as often as he can to his farm in Iowa. “I try to stop by the chapter house when I can. I still stop by and see old fraternity brothers in Iowa. The fraternity has been very beneficial to me.” Clearly when the history is written about the accomplishments of Brother Charles Manatt he will be remembered for commitment to his family; his successes working with the Democratic Party; his work on education issues; and his accomplishments in free enterprise, human rights and democratization both at home and abroad. ∆X Quarterly Spring/Summer ’02 11

Pete, Stucco the Clown, Kingston and Hairy Mary
By Jeff Main, DePauw ’89
Rob Harrell DePauw ’91 looks up at the map on the wall of his studio. Several cities around the country sport thumb tacks – one for each city where the local paper has picked up his new comic strip, Big Top. Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, and dozens of other major cities join small town Greencastle, Indiana. Many more can be expected to follow. Rob came to Greencastle and DePauw University from his home in Bloomington with the intention of pursuing a degree in political science. Soon after moving into the Delta Chi Fraternity as a freshman his artistic talent was noticed by three brothers. Mike Garrard ’88, John Roe ’88, and Bill Young ’90 – each one a talented artist – convinced him to switch his major to Studio Art. That began the process that now has him on the verge of realizing a
12 ∆X Quarterly Spring/Summer ’02
dream: to be the creator of a major syndicated comic strip. Big Top is, in fact, about to be launched into worldwide syndication by Universal Press. The strip follows the adventures of Pete, a 10-year-old boy who is growing up in the circus. His friends and mentors are a collection of talking animals and carnival characters. Wink, the bear, is Pete’s best friend. Pete’s in charge of Stucco the Clown (“part clown, part hell-spawn” according to Harrell). Hairy Mary, the bearded lady, is one of the few regular adult characters. Various monkeys, lions, and poodles are also featured. The humor is heavily existential and often sarcastic. While his artistic talents were formally honed in his classes at DePauw (and later at The Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida), his Fra-
Rob Harrell DePauw ’91 ternity also provided him plenty of ways to develop his creative side. He was given free reign to design tee shirts and party favors for virtually every formal and informal event that the house had. The shirt featuring two lobsters dancing claw-in-claw is a personal favorite of Harrell’s. This experience even led to a business he co-owned after graduation with Jon Weed DePauw ’91. They provided shirts and favors to Greek organizations on several campuses. In addition to the practice, it appears Delta Chi also has provided him ample source material. “Some of the characters are actually composites of friends I had in the house and have stayed in touch with,” Harrell muses. A mischievous grin spreads across his face. “I think every fraternity probably has at least one crazy, off-the-wall guy that you
can never really pin down. That’s sort of Stucco the Clown. Certainly the atmosphere of living in a fraternity for four years had to have contributed to being able to write a strip about a bunch of circus freaks.” Actually, Big Top isn’t the first strip Rob’s produced. He developed two others at earlier points in his career. He freely admits, however, that he wasn’t ready for this kind of exposure then. Part of his development has been to refine his organizational skills and trust his own instincts. Universal Press expects him to submit work for the daily strip at least six weeks in advance (eight weeks for the Sunday edition). In addition to this workload, Rob produces fine art, oil on canvas, for exhibition and sale. Several of his portraits and paintings are currently being exhibited at Clowes Hall in Indianapolis. He has also developed a thriving business of producing original illustrations for advertising agencies and clients as diverse as Volkswagon, Time Magazine, and a children’s textbook publisher. Balancing the competing needs of these three disciplines is where trusting his instincts comes in. At one time he tried to make himself work a certain amount on both fine art and comics each day. He has since learned to sense which project he has the most energy and enthusiasm for at that time and just go with it. In this way, he creates several days’ strips in one stretch – writing, drawing, inking, etc. Sometimes while working in one discipline he’ll even derive inspiration for another piece of work. Inspiration also comes from other creative people in a variety of media. Rob loves and admires the art of Malcolm Liepke. He grew up admiring the comic strips Calvin & Hobbes and Far Side (both also syndicated by Universal Press). John Irving and Tom Wolfe are
favorite authors. During our interview he received a phone call from Jon Weed. They shared a few laughs while discussing a mutual favorite, The Larry Sanders Show. When one listens to Harrell discussing these influences, it’s clear he loves to be challenged and entertained. Yet he seems totally at ease with his own ability and perspective.
t seems that both Rob and Pete have quite a bit of adventure in front of them. Rob recently had the opportunity to talk with fellow Universal Press talents Garry Trudeau (Doonesbury) and Jim
Davis (Garfield) about the business and what’s ahead. He clearly relishes the idea of following in their massive footsteps. “Talking with them just enhanced the excitement of getting accepted,” he says. Rob says the Pete character in Big Top isn’t really autobiographical (“he’s too much the voice of reason for that”), but allows that there’s more of himself in that character than anyone else. It seems that both Rob and Pete have quite a bit of adventure in front of them. And he has a drawer full of thumbtacks. If you would like to see Big Top in your local newspaper, please contact the comics editor and ask for it!
