‘There’s no greater gift than to find your passion’ Class of 2010 celebrates “As a class, we have made our mark on DePauw history, and we have contributed great things to this place,” Walker Cup recipient Nicole “Nikki” C. Craker told her 484 fellow graduates during 2010 commencement on Sunday, May 23. “Some of our accomplishments are large and public, others are small and personal.” A biology major and Honor Scholar, Craker served as DePauw’s student body

president, mentor to first-year students, and member of the Student Life and Academic Atmosphere Committee as well as the Campus Planning Committee. As Walker Cup recipient, she was recognized as the senior student judged to have contributed the most to DePauw in the past four years. “While it is clear that our class is made up of very talented individuals, we have all contributed to this experience,” she said at DePauw’s 171st commencement, held in Holton Memorial Quadrangle. “We have done a lot for DePauw, but DePauw has done a lot for us. Here we have learned not only skills but also how to think, how to examine and how to question. We have been given the tools necessary not only to succeed in our own pursuits, but also to inspire others to do so as well.” She called the University “our home – a home that will continue to support us as new alumni.” Wallace “J.” Nichols III ’89, a leading conservationist who has particularly worked to protect the oceans and endangered sea turtles, delivered the

principal address, titled “Lovers and Fighters,” to the Class of 2010. “You are making the changes that inspired me,” he said. He commended the graduates for their generation’s commitment to improving the environment and challenged them to continue working to make the world a better place. Nichols noted that members of the Class of 2010 have demonstrated great love for their parents, college and planet. “But you’re also fighters,” he said. “You’ve fought hard to reach this day, to graduate from college after almost two decades of schooling. You’ve fought to make your campus cleaner and greener, and your world more just. … You fight for the things you love. That’s why you are lovers AND fighters.” Living his environmental principles, Nichols traveled to Indiana by riding a train for 62 hours – instead of flying – from California in order to speak at commencement. He gave each member of the audience a blue marble as a symbol of the great blue, ocean planet on which we live.

I had sucked the marrow out of this place, as Thoreau might say. And at that moment, I had discovered my passion. I wanted to fix what was being destroyed, plain and simple.

Two 2010 graduates receive Fulbright Awards DePauw University continued its Fulbright tradition as two graduating seniors received prestigious Fulbright Awards to teach and study abroad during the next year. For the fourth consecutive year, DePauw is listed among the Top Producers of Fulbright Awards for U.S. Students by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Mary A. Howard will teach English at a public school in South Korea during the upcoming academic year after receiving an English Teaching Assistantship grant through the 2010-11 Fulbright U.S. Student Program competition. Fulbright student grants aim to increase mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchange while serving as a catalyst for long-term leadership development. During the summer of 2007, she worked as teaching assistant for the reading and writing summer program at the International School of Bangkok. In DePauw’s Academic Resource Center, she was a writing tutor and a speaking/ listening consultant. Last year, Howard received a Critical Language Scholarship from the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and
Cultural Affairs, and spent the summer in South Korea studying the Korean language at Kyung Hee University and immersing herself in the local culture. Danielle M. Shover has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Scholarship. The grant will allow Shover to travel to Spain to teach English to high school students in Madrid during the 2010-11 academic year through an English Teaching Assistantship. Shover will also lead a creative writing group, which will focus on food literature and culture. Shover was a double major in English (writing) and Spanish and a Media Fellow who spent the Spring 2009 semester in Spain, studying and interning with Barcelona Metropolitan magazine. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest American international exchange program offering opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.

Rector tradition reestablished through gift from Lewis Gulick ’44 Jack Morrill ’57 named Rector Scholarship Program director DePauw University is reestablishing a Rector Scholarship tradition with the help of a gift from an alumnus who was able to attend DePauw as recipient of the prestigious scholarship. A gift from M. Lewis Gulick ’44 will allow DePauw once again to provide a director to maintain the “Rector spirit” of DePauw’s preeminent academic merit award program. Gulick is author of the book An Investment in Humanity: Edward Rector and His Historic Scholarship Program for DePauw, published in 2009. “A group of five undergraduate Rector Scholars from the Classes of 2009 and 2010 who worked on the book commended the academic excellence of their campus peers but regretted the absence of group and bonding activities that they said had historically characterized the program,” Gulick said. “I agree with their observations and favor creation of a permanent position or entity to support and enhance the program indefinitely through the years ahead. Thus, I am pleased to have an opportunity to help in the reinstitution of Rector Scholarship Program Director position.” Lawyer and philanthropist Edward Rector made one of the largest gifts ever to a liberal arts college in 1919 to fund full-tuition scholarships. His generosity made it possible for many talented students to pursue a DePauw education, which they might not have been able to afford otherwise. During the next nine decades, Rector Scholars went on to achieve uncommon success in their careers, personal lives and communities. “The Rector scholarship program had an enormous impact on DePauw, particularly in its earlier years when scholarships were being awarded at well upward of 100 a year. As might be expected from such a large influx of gifted he story of Edward Rector and his Gulick historic scholarship program it is that of a young students, raised the brilliant and farsighted philanthropist.

News of the University
John “Jack” E. Morrill ’57, Rector Scholarship Program director To administer the program, Rector established the Edward Rector Scholarship Foundation to oversee all scholarship program activities. The first Rector Foundation director was the revered Henry B. Longden, who spent 73 years as a student, teacher and administrator at DePauw and served as acting president from 1924-25. Eventually, University offices expanded and other financial aid sources became available, and the foundation ceased to exist in the 1980s. In subsequent years, the admission, financial aid and other offices handled matters previously addressed by the foundation and its director. “Longden’s Foundation directorship was as important as any of his appointments from the standpoint of DePauw’s development because the Rector program in its earlier years was such a large part of the school. Undergraduate Rector Scholars peaked at 700 in the 1932-33 school year, comprising nearly half the entire student body and 70 percent of the men,” Gulick said. “The director and his aides engaged in a wide range of activities, from recruiting scholarship applicants
to conducting gatherings of the scholars on campus, issuing publications and promoting associations of graduates.” With Gulick’s gift, DePauw named its first new Rector Scholarship Program director in decades. John “Jack” E. Morrill ’57, professor emeritus of mathematics and economics and a Rector Scholar himself, has been named director and is beginning work to revive the office. Morrill’s number-one goal is to restore communication with Rector Scholars. “I plan to develop more public visibility for the Rector Scholarship Program, and especially to connect with Rector alumni as well as communicate with current Rector Scholar students to make them more aware of the tradition of the Rector Scholarship,” Morrill said. “There also was a newsletter called Rector Record that I plan to start again.” Morrill also will begin building relationships with incoming Rector Scholars. He will organize a welcoming event for new Rector Scholars and plan events for all Rector Scholars on campus. “Edward Rector followed his scholarship students closely and had a habit of visiting the homes of the Rector students. He even got copies of their grades to check on them,” Morrill said. “I don’t intend to monitor their grades, however.” Rector Scholarships were initially intended for men only, and men from Indiana in particular, Morrill noted. However, an additional rule allowed any student – male or female – who received higher grades than a Rector Scholar in their class to earn a Rector Scholarship. As a result, many women did. Eventually, Rector Scholarships were awarded regularly to men and women. Morrill received a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics from DePauw and master’s and doctoral degrees in mathematics from the University of Michigan. Following graduate school, he returned to DePauw to teach
mathematics and became a full professor in 1976. He retired in 2001and still lives in Greencastle. Very little was published about Edward Rector and his historic scholarship program until Gulick undertook a project to recognize his great contributions to DePauw. In his book, Gulick provides insights into Rector the man as well as how he set up and maintained a scholarship program that attracted to DePauw some of the best and brightest high school graduates from across the nation. The book also examines the tremendous impact the scholarship program and the Rector Scholars themselves have had on DePauw. A copy of the book is now given to all entering Rector Scholar students. An Investment in Humanity is available by going to the DePauw Bookstore website or calling 765-658-4926. The price is $15 plus shipping and handling.

Grew Bancroft Foundation helps bring students from Tokyo to Greencastle By Linda Li ’10 Tamana Ogawa, a junior majoring in conflict studies, heard about the Grew Bancroft Foundation scholarship from teachers at her high school in Japan. The foundation is an organization that honors the U.S.-Japan partnership as one of the most important bilateral relationships by providing scholarships for graduates of Japanese high schools to study for four years at well-recognized liberal arts colleges in the United States. With her teachers’ encouragement and mentorship, Ogawa went through the application process to attend DePauw University. Ogawa was attracted to DePauw in large part because of the opportunity to explore the interdisciplinary conflict studies program. She believes that the Grew Bancroft Foundation scholarship and others like it have helped to improve U.S.-Japan relations. She said, “I think [the scholarship] definitely contributes to a good relationship between the two countries in the long run. My experience in the States has tremendously expanded 8 DePauw Magazine I Summer 2010
my understanding of what America is like. Also, I had an opportunity to introduce what Japan was like to the DePauw community. “The time that I spent with my friends and professors at DePauw has been incredibly rich and joyful. I will share my experience with my friends in Japan. Thus, in the long run, mutual cultural understanding will contribute to minimizing misunderstandings between the two when students work in the real world.” Ogawa is also a Rector scholar at DePauw and serves on the Multicultural and Community Life Advisory Board, International Student Association and Model United Nations. On a global level, she worked with abused children in the Philippines through PREDA (People’s Recovery, Empowerment Development Assistance Foundation), built houses for victims of Hurricane Katrina through Habitat for Humanity, and spent spring semester 2010 studying at SIT World Learning program in
Kathmandu, Nepal, where she examined the diversity of Himalayan societies across the South Asian sub-continent, with special emphasis on the Tibetan experience and identity. DePauw is one of 18 U.S. liberal arts colleges with which the Grew Bancroft Foundation collaborates. Currently, DePauw has three students associated with the Grew Bancroft scholarship on campus: Tamana Ogawa ’11, Megumi Horiguchi ’12 and Shota Ebata ’13. Applicants for the Grew Bancroft Foundation scholarship undergo a one-day, three-round interview process in the International House in Tokyo. They submit their applications and recommendation letters in the first round, take a series of tests on essay writing, mathematics and translating from English to Japanese in the second round, and interview with a group of alumni from the program in the third round. Only two finalists receive a scholarship from the foundation. The remaining finalists are given recommendation letters to submit to liberal arts colleges in collaboration with the foundation. Horiguchi, although not a Bancroft Foundation scholarship recipient, was one of the finalists and received a recommendation letter at the end of the application process to accompany her

At DePauw, she is involved in a range of extracurricular activities, including being a member of the University Symphony Orchestra and ASIA club. She says she enjoys the tight-knit community that the University and the surrounding Greencastle community offer. A psychology major, Horiguchi hopes to attend graduate school in the States and earn a Ph.D. degree in clinical psychology. She appreciates the opportunity to attend DePauw through the Bancroft Foundation’s help and says she has learned a great deal about both the United States and Japan through her experiences at the University. “You gain new perspectives by being immersed in new cultures, and you start seeing your own country more objectively and what your country really needs,” Horiguchi said. “For me, that was psychology and that Japan really needs professionals in the field of psychology.
A student from Japan performs during the International Bazaar held on campus in November 2009. I think that is one benefit from this program. I hope that other people learn something from being around me and hearing my opinions [as well].” The Grew Bancroft Foundation was established in 1950 and currently has more than 100 graduates, 24 of whom have earned doctorates and 41 of whom
have master’s degrees, including M.B.A. Recipients of the scholarship have worked or are working at some of the most prominent businesses and organizations in the world, such as Goldman Sachs Japan, International Monetary Fund, Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, United Nations and World Trade Organization.

DePauw will move to the North Coast Athletic Conference in 2011 DePauw University will join the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC), effective July 1, 2011. NCAC officials invited DePauw, a member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) since 1998, to join the conference, which includes Allegheny College (Meadville, Pa.), Denison University (Granville, Ohio), Hiram College (Hiram, Ohio), Kenyon College (Gambier, Ohio), Oberlin College (Oberlin, Ohio), Ohio Wesleyan University (Delaware, Ohio), Wabash College (Crawfordsville, Ind.), Wittenberg University (Springfield, Ohio) and the College of Wooster (Wooster, Ohio). “After careful consideration of the advantages of membership in this conference and of the adjustments that would be required in leaving our current conference, we have decided to accept this invitation,” President Brian W. Casey said. Twenty of DePauw’s 21 intercollegiate athletic programs will move to the NCAC effective July 1, 2011. Football, which already has a schedule in place for the next two seasons, will enter the NCAC effective July 1, 2012. According to President Casey, “Many
factors played a part in this decision. Chief among them was a desire for a less strenuous and more environmentally friendly travel regimen for our teams,” noting that the NCAC membership stretches across Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, while the SCAC includes institutions in Texas, Mississippi and Colorado. The move to the NCAC, the president adds, aligns DePauw with “strong institutions with a similar focus on academic excellence and the overall
development of the student with fewer strains on both schedules and budgets.” “Like the SCAC, the NCAC is committed to broad-based athletic programs, gender equity and the campus integration of student-athletes,” said S. Page Cotton, The Theodore S. Katula Director of Athletics at DePauw. “We are very excited about this new partnership, which is a great fit for DePauw.”

President Casey asked Cotton to coordinate the transition to the new conference. “The North Coast Athletic Conference is home to many of the most outstanding undergraduate liberal arts colleges in the lower Great Lakes states,” said Dale T. Knobel, president of Denison University and president of the NCAC. “We are as proud that all members host chapters of Phi Beta Kappa as we are of the high level of athletic competition that makes the NCAC one of the leading conferences in NCAA Division III. DePauw University already partners with other NCAC colleges in a variety of academic activities. It just seems natural that DePauw’s student-athletes should now join their peers and friends of the NCAC on the playing field.” More than one out of five DePauw students is a member of an intercollegiate athletic team. The University’s intercollegiate athletic history dates back to 1866. Currently, the Tigers compete in 21 sports and have won five consecutive Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference all-sports trophies and six in their 12 years of competition, including the 2009-10 award.

DePauw wins SCAC President’s Trophy for fifth consecutive year With spring championships in women’s tennis and women’s golf and secondplace finishes in men’s and women’s track and field, baseball and men’s tennis, DePauw captured the 2009-10 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference President’s Trophy by a 127.5-point margin. DePauw finished with 925 points, followed by Trinity University with 797.5, Centre College with 777.5 and Rhodes College with 722.5. DePauw has won the last five SCAC all-sports trophies and six in its 12 years of SCAC competition. The127.5-point margin is DePauw’s largest ever and equals the total margin from the last four all-sports races combined. DePauw is only the third school in the history of the conference (CAC or SCAC) to put together a President’s Trophy win streak of five or more years. In addition to DePauw’s two spring sports titles, the Tigers won titles last year in women’s cross country, women’s basketball and men’s swimming and diving, and shared the championship in football. Prior to the four second-place finishes in the spring, DePauw also placed second in men’s cross country, field hockey, men’s basketball, and women’s swimming and diving.
Two alumni, one senior named Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellows Two DePauw alumni and a senior were among the 80 new Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellows – the “Rhodes Scholars of teaching” – selected by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation of Princeton, N.J. Each Fellow receives a $30,000 stipend to complete a special intensive master’s program in teacher preparation at one of the four partner universities in Indiana (Ball State, Purdue, University of Indianapolis and Indiana UniversityPurdue University at Indianapolis). Fellows then make a commitment to teach for at least three years in a high-need urban or rural school in the state of Indiana that has committed, along with the partner university, to provide ongoing professional support and opportunities for continued study. Andrew M. Bever ’08, who majored in physics as an undergraduate and was a Science Research Fellow and president of the Physics Club at DePauw, is pursuing a master’s degree in education at Purdue. Amanda N. Hendricks ’09, who majored in biology and is a naturalist intern with Indiana Dunes Environmental Learning Center, is enrolled in a master’s program at the University of Indianapolis. Kaley E. Robbins ’10, who was a mathematics and Spanish double major with a minor in education studies and is the creator and coordinator of DePauw’s Special Student Friend program, also is enrolled at University of Indianapolis. The new Fellows will be ready to enter their own classrooms in fall 2011. The Woodrow Wilson Foundation selected Indiana in December 2007 as the first site for its new national fellowship for high school teachers. The program is intended to help overhaul teacher education and encourage exceptionally able teacher candidates to seek long-term careers teaching science, technology and math in high-need classrooms. n

Through the Years
The distinctive style of DePauw’s campus through the years A history lesson by Professor Emeritus John Baughman
Speaking with alumni who come back to Greencastle for Alumni Reunion Weekend, it quickly becomes clear that different generations remember different campuses, though everyone seems to find parts of campus that remind them of their experiences here. As Professor Emeritus of History John J. Baughman ’48 suggests in the following pages, DePauw’s campus has changed and developed through the generations for many reasons. Fires, economic pressures, and the need to renovate and renew existing structures have all contributed to the changing face of the campus since 1837. The campuses of healthy schools grow and change, and the best schools channel this change in support of their missions. Nowhere is this process more important than at schools like DePauw. What makes residential liberal arts colleges such as DePauw an important part of the tapestry of American higher education is the extent to which we are able to provide an overall environment designed to support the education we bring to our students. DePauw is vitally connected to the world outside Greencastle, through our study abroad programs and internships and through our alumni, who have prospered all over the world. But DePauw is also a world unto itself, a world aimed at helping our students launch the best lives that they can for themselves. Our campus, then, is especially important to our educational work. When DePauw Magazine sat down with Professor Baughman to talk about how the DePauw campus has evolved since the University’s founding in 1837, he joked that he should title this lecture “Baughman’s Reflections in His Old Age About the DePauw Campus and the Buildings Internally, Externally, and Other Aspects of Buildings Here.” The fact is, after 66 years of involvement with DePauw as a student, beloved teacher and even University historian for a time, hardly anyone is more qualified to discuss the history of the campus. Baughman also was co-author with Clifton J. Phillips, professor emeritus of history, of DePauw: A Pictorial History in 1987. So, as the University heads toward its 175th anniversary in 2012, we offer you a DePauw history lesson, courtesy of Professor Baughman. Summer 2010 I DePauw Magazine 13
The Campus Through the Years
s I ponder the nearly 175 years of the Universityâ€™s history, several themes come to mind that I think made a difference about how the campus evolved. The most obvious is growth in size of student body and faculty, with an accompanying increase in curricular opportunities and social interests. This naturally has meant physical growth of our campus. Only 50 years ago, one could move about the campus comfortably in the 10 minutes allotted between classes and easily find most University locations. Today there are University buildings that some graduates never enter in their four years at DePauw. Another thought is how frequently
our buildings were constructed, perhaps unintentionally, to impress students. In the 19th century, most students were in their late teens when they arrived on campus from Hoosier farms and small towns; our buildings must have seemed huge to them. Significant, too, is that when DePauw was founded in 1837 as Indiana Asbury University, no one considered the college responsible for housing students, who had to locate room and board in the small town of Greencastle, then with a population of about 600. Other colleges provided rudimentary dormitories, but not us. By the time Indiana Asbury University became DePauw in 1884 and first provided some student housing, fraternities and sororities had already begun to offer their own residences.
The first building In June 1837, the trustees laid the cornerstone for the first real structure on the Indiana Asbury campus, on the present site of Roy O. West Library. The Edifice, which faced north, would serve as the single major building for the next 35 years. Built in the Federal architectural style with three floors, it had a small, belfry-like tower with a melodious bell that could be heard all over town; later there was a large clock. Because the University was a Methodist Episcopal institution, the first floor had a large chapel plus three recitation halls. The second floor had smaller classrooms to accommodate the primary teaching method of recitation, and the third floor housed a small library and two large halls for the student literary societies. Here, the all-male students could gather weekly

The original 40 or so students, aged 13 to 28, studied in a preparatory department housed in a small county seminary building on the corner of Seminary Street and College Avenue, near the present Emison Museum of Art. The only object related to Indiana Asbury before the Civil War, and the only one remaining today, is the 1859 gravestone – located in the Academic Quad – of Methodist Episcopal Bishop and Mrs. Roberts, who were instrumental in the University’s founding.
Teaching moves to East College By the 1870s, Indiana Asbury’s leaders decided to construct a larger building to the east of the Edifice. It has always been called East College, and it remains a

All college teaching was to be in East College, while the preparatory department moved into the Edifice. East College’s unique Victorian style included Gothic arches, French mansard roof and Italianate columns. The first floor had classrooms and two large, wellfurnished rooms for the two remaining literary societies. The second floor had a chapel, Meharry Hall; the president’s office; and the classics department. A chapel balcony and extra classrooms were on the third floor. The building had two towers – one for the bell and clock, and the other for a campus telescope and observatory. The basement housed chemistry classes. To great consternation, the Edifice, except its outer walls, burned in 1879.

In 1884 Washington C. DePauw, an influential Methodist businessman and philanthropist, provided enough money to rescue the struggling Indiana Asbury, which was renamed in his honor. With support from the administration and trustees, DePauw developed a plan for separate specialized schools housed in separate buildings. The idea was to create five separate parks: • West Park encompassed the old West College, the Roberts tomb, and a new building called Gentlemen’s

The design for Walker Circle, right, using the Minshall columns was the idea of Jim Katterjohn, DePauw landscaper, who presented the idea for consideration to Mrs. Walker. Their idea was that the circle would serve as a visual bridge between the new addition to the Memorial Union Building and historic East College.

faculty home called Rosabower, where Roberts Hall now stands, and which the University used for a variety of activities. â€˘ DePauw purchased University Park in northeast Greencastle for eventual expansion. McKim Observatory was built on a knoll there in 1884. All the new buildings were much alike. Red brick, limestone edging and simple geometric lines unified the campus architecturally. But the sudden death of W. C. DePauw in 1887 and economic panic of the 1890s halted campus expansion plans. The exception came in 1891, when DePauwâ€™s widow and daughter gave a building located in the South Park, originally for the school of theology. Instead, it became a dormitory and dining room named

Male students rejected Gentlemen’s Hall to remain in rooming houses or the mansions that some fraternities rented. Renamed Middle College, the proposed male dormitory instead housed biology and the life sciences. The law and theology building was turned over to the music program.
After the turn of the century Declining enrollment compounded the difficulties brought on by W. C. DePauw’s death and the financial crisis of the 1890s. In place of multiple professional schools, DePauw reestablished itself as a liberal arts college with an attached music school. Electives and lectures replaced traditional recitation in a revised curriculum.
Growing enrollment and an increasingly specialized faculty sparked the need for new buildings. No longer would fund drives among local citizens and generous Hoosier Methodists suffice; financing would come primarily as gifts from new and prosperous Methodist entrepreneurs. First on the scene was D.W. Minshall, a Terre Haute industrialist who, with his family, in 1901-02 provided a home for chemistry, physics and mathematics in Minshall Laboratory on the southwest corner of Center Park. The three-story building used DePauw’s traditional red brick and limestone, but it was U-shaped with an ornate entrance flanked by classical columns. The columns eventually were restored in Walker Circle on the north side of the present Memorial Student Union. In 1908 Andrew Carnegie gave

$50,000 to build a Carnegie Library. An Indianapolis architect took a new approach, designing a two-story NeoGreek structure entirely of Bedford limestone with four huge Ionic columns on the west entrance. The first floor featured the book stacks, spacious reading rooms, high ceilings and massive columns. The second floor housed seminar rooms and departmental libraries. Many people thought it was the most beautiful building on campus – and it challenged our tradition of red brick rectangles. In 1916 Bowman Gymnasium, named after a former president, became the first major building in old South Park. It, too, was built in the style of the early buildings, but with more ornamentation. It was an imposing structure, with indoor athletic facilities

The Campus Through the Years for both men and women – a basketball court, swimming pool, bowling alley, lockers, showers and office space for the athletics faculty and coaches. Its classrooms and two large meeting rooms on the lower floor introduced a place for students to gather. Chicago lawyer and philanthropist Edward Rector gave money in 1917 to build a large new women’s dormitory in East Park. Named after his father, Rector Hall had elements of the Classical Revival and Italian Renaissance architectural styles. Majestic and highly functional, Rector Hall had three stories in an H-shape. It featured a spacious reception hall, great dining facilities, and single and double sleeping rooms for women. For 1917, it was a gem. Studebaker Memorial Administration Building was completed in 1918, a gift
of the Studebaker family of South Bend, Ind., and named for Clem Studebaker of the automobile and carriage company, a former DePauw trustee. Classical columns marked the entrance, and inside its brick and limestone exterior was an ornate marble stairway with statuary. It still houses administrative offices, although only the president’s office remains in its original location. With new buildings ever more sophisticated and lavish, University trustees in 1917 engaged DePauw’s first landscape architect to draw up a comprehensive campus plan. It included planting 2,500 new shrubs around the campus.
Colonial revival comes into vogue Before the Depression, fraternities and sororities began building their own large
houses on the fringes of the campus. In the late 1920s, funds from Edward Rector’s estate (he died in 1925) allowed DePauw to follow suit with two new dormitories. Next to Rector Hall, and in a similar style, was Lucy Rowland Hall for freshman women (1928), named for Rector’s wife. To locate Lucy Rowland Hall, the music hall was physically moved across the street next to Bowman Gymnasium – still remembered by a few Greencastle senior citizens as a majestic event. The second new dormitory was Longden Hall (1927), named for revered professor Henry B. Longden, first director of the Rector Scholarship Fund Foundation. Longden Hall, along with Florence Hall, was intended for independent men, now organized into Men’s Hall Association. In 1929 the two crowded Methodist Episcopal churches

on the fringes of campus were replaced – College Avenue Church became Speech Hall, and its sanctuary a theater – by one new church named for former DePauw president Hillary Gobin. Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church was built in a Gothic renewal style of yellow brick. Small and cathedral-like, it was unlike any other building on campus. But the church was so centrally located and filled with students and townspeople on Sundays and weekdays that it became an integral part of the campus. Thanks to organist Van Denman Thompson and Josiah K. Lilly of Indianapolis, it had the only pipe organ on campus, a real asset for the School of Music. Also in 1929, the trustees adopted Georgian, or Colonial Revival, as the official architectural style for future DePauw buildings. With the Rockefellers

rebuilding Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, many colleges east of the Mississippi adopted this style, which would dominate our campus for decades. Asbury Hall for the humanities and social sciences came first in 1930, a wide building with decorative chimneys at either end of a central section, dormer windows, reversible gabled roof and red brick walls. Next to it on the west, in 1935, was the Publications Building in a similar style. In 1940 Mason Hall, a dormitory for independent junior and senior women, completed the new quadrangle in old East Park. It occupied the site of Women’s (Mansfield) Hall, a dormitory that burned in 1933. Mason’s north front was similar to other Colonial Revivalstyle buildings on campus but with a beautiful semicircular portico on the

The Campus Through the Years north side; the south side matched Lucy Rowland Hall and Rector Hall. On the site of W. C. DePauw’s Gentlemen’s (Middle College) Hall, torn down along with West College in the 1930s, came Harrison Hall in 1940, named after Danville, Ill., alumnus John Harrison. It was similar to and faced Asbury Hall – three stories, red brick, wide chimneys and dormer windows – but the roof gables ran in a different direction. It was to house the botany, zoology, geology and psychology departments. Harrison Hall had the first elevator on campus. Blackstock Stadium, built in 1941, was unique in its use but still maintained the brick-and-limestone, Colonial Revival look. The World War II era brought us some oddities with temporary barracks,
Quonset huts and prefabricated houses to accommodate increased enrollment of married veterans and, later, junior faculty members. The Memorial Student Union in 1952 memorialized those lost to the Second World War. It continued DePauw’s use of Colonial Revival architecture; impressive and L-shaped, its broad front portico and six famous columns faced the Rector Quad, and an outside patio faced East College. The Union introduced a ballroomauditorium, cafeteria, dining room, large central reception hall, alumni office, faculty lounge, WGRE radio station and more. In 1956 Roy O. West Library, designed by library architectural specialists Wheeler and Bailey, departed radically from Colonial Revival. The reason was cost; it was a large, flat-roofed cube of reinforced concrete and brick.
The library has since been renovated and enlarged, with columns added to the front of the building and a decorative belfry on top for a more Colonial Revival look. The old Carnegie library was remodeled into the Emison Art Center. The last of the Colonial Revival structures, Roberts Hall, a men’s dormitory, was built in 1961. A new bookstore added to the Union building didn’t stray too far, but Roberts Hall marked the end of Colonial Revival architectural style on campus.

The Campus Through the Years moved away from dormitories with rooms on either side of long halls and toward suite living; Hogate Hall included 24 sixperson suites. It was also the first building on campus to be air-conditioned. A major addition to campus occurred in 1972 with construction of the Percy L. Julian Science and Mathematics Center. Designed in a modern style, the Julian Center reflected the emerging use of technology. It featured an auditorium, classrooms, library, computer center, offices, seminar rooms and large laboratories on two large floors. The building had a limited number of windows. The music, communication and theater departments were strengthened with construction of the Performing Arts Center in 1976.

The Campus Through the Years it was a unique, three-story academic building. The Performing Arts Center also featured the 1,400-seat Kresge Auditorium, which changed campus life. Meharry Hall in East College and Gobin Church sanctuary were too small to accommodate large audiences of students, faculty members, alumni and people from the community. Kresge Auditorium enabled DePauw to gather most of the campus community in one place at the same time.
Ongoing change In the last three decades, new, more contemporary buildings and the renovation of others have changed the campus considerably. The Lilly Physical Education and Recreation Center, completed in 1982, was a thenspacious field house with gymnasium
and natatorium. Subsequently, it was expanded to provide a fitness center with exercise equipment for students. The old Bowman Gym was demolished, and a park was landscaped in its place. Academic programs were supported with construction of the Eugene S. Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media in 1991; F.W. Olin Biological Sciences Building in 1993; and the Richard E. Peeler Art Center, designed by worldrenowned architect Carlos Jimenez, in 2002. The Julian Center also was renovated and greatly expanded, and the William Weston Clarke Emison Museum of Art (formerly Emison Art Center) was renovated, as was Roy O. West Library. The center of campus became much more impressive with the redesigned and expanded Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts. The
Indoor Tennis and Track Center, which opened in 2001, provides a state-of-theart competition and practice venue. A new dimension was added to the University with the acquisition of the 520-acre DePauw Nature Park to the west of campus. The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics and The Bartlett Reflection Center were built there on the cliffs overlooking an old limestone quarry. In this period, the University also completed a major restoration of the landmark East College. While many colleges use their oldest building as administrative headquarters, DePauw maintained classrooms in East College. That decision means that students have an opportunity to attend classes and study in the heart of the old campus, where they gain a real sense of the historical DePauw.

The Write Stuff
he process of teaching and learning at DePauw in its early days involved mostly recitations by students and faculty members in small classrooms. As enrollment grew, the University moved to more lecture classrooms, beginning about 1900. Asbury Hall, Harrison Hall and the other buildings on campus were built for lecturing, which impacted the technique of college teaching. In more recent years, DePauw has increased the size of its faculty and moved toward using more seminars and technology in teaching and learning. As a result, buildings have been constructed and renovated with smaller classrooms that incorporate technology and accommodate a different style of teaching and learning. A 50-year graduate of DePauw recently stopped by and told me about visiting his old haunts on campus. In a letter I received later, the alumnus said he went to Asbury Hall to see where he took some of his courses. He reported that the larger classrooms he knew are now smaller seminar rooms. So, yes, things have changed over the years, but DePauw has maintained its distinctive style.

In The Way of Jesus, Jones draws both from the scriptures and from such fresh thinkers as Brian McLaren, Dallas Willard, Doug Pagitt and Shane Clairborne, offering genuine hope and historical direction to the millions of spiritually homeless. Just as importantly, The Way of Jesus offers a clear path to struggling, shrinking congregations who desire to re-form themselves in a way that is both more faithful to the Gospel and
compelling to post-modern generations, who have long since abandoned the institutional church. n AMIE KLEMPNAUER MILLER ’88, She Looks Just Like You: A Memoir of (Nonbiological Lesbian) Motherhood (Beacon Press – ISBN: 978-0-8070-04692). At the age of 37, Amie Klempnauer Miller was about to become a mother for the first time, except she wasn’t pregnant. After a year and a half of trying to conceive through in vitro fertilization, Miller’s treatments were unsuccessful. When her partner, Jane, decided to undergo the procedure and became pregnant on the first try, Miller was thrilled, but suddenly found she was in uncharted waters. In She Looks Just Like You, Miller shares the intimate details of pregnancy, childbirth, and stay-at-home parenting from the perspective of someone who both defies and defines the norms of motherhood. She explores the love, humor and terror that come with motherhood, and though she does not shy away from sharing the most challenging parts of her experience, Miller’s ability to find the humor in things always shines through. n ALAN R. MILLETT ’59, The War for Korea, 1950-1951: They Came from the North (University of Kansas Press – ISBN: 978-0-7006-1709-89). In this second
volume of a monumental trilogy, Millett shifts his focus to the 12-month period from North Korea’s invasion of South Korea on June 25, 1950, through the end of June 1951 – the most active phase of the internationalized “Korean War.” Moving deftly between the battlefield and the halls of power, Millett weaves together military operations and tactics without losing sight of Cold War geopolitics, strategy and civil-military relations. Filled with new insights about the conflict, The War for Korea, 1950-1951 is the first book to give combined arms its due, looking at the contributions and challenges of integrating naval and air power with the ground forces of United Nations Command and showing the importance of Korean support services. Millett is Ambrose Professor of History and director of the Eisenhower Center for American Studies at the University of New Orleans. n DR. JACK RUNNINGER ’45 and Judge Dan Winn, Fixing Stupid, Two Curmudgeons Pet Peeves (ISBN: 9781451553710). The authors adhere to the philosophy that one of the few advantages of old age is the privilege of becoming crotchety and cantankerous. This book is a discussion by two curmudgeons of their resultant pet peeves. The book’s first section is written by retired judge Dan Winn. According to an editor’s note, Winn uses his keen and perceptive legal mind and experience to
analyze the things that irk him, and what should be done about them. The second part of the book is written by retired optometrist Jack Runninger, a humorist who has received many Ohio and national awards for his newspaper and magazine humor columns. Runninger focuses on the humor and satire in the crazy and aggravating things that people do. n JEFFREY D. SHIVELY ’95, It Came Out Fighting!: Cadillac Motor Car Division’s Rise to Dominance of the Luxury Car Market After World War II (AuthorHouse –ISBN: 978-1-4343-4834-0). It Came Out Fighting! is an analysis of the factors that contributed to Cadillac Motor Car Division’s ascension to sales leadership in the fine car field in the years following World War II. Factors at play during the pre-war years, such as mechanical and styling innovations, advertising concepts and the redefinition of the luxury car genre are considered. Cadillac’s wartime production of aircraft engine parts and tanks hold the real key to post-war dominance. The War Department paid the company to upgrade its facilities and its drive train, allowing Cadillac to avoid many of the financial burdens endured by its primary rival, Packard, during reconversion. That also permitted Cadillac to sell an improved product for less cost to the customer than its competitors and to rule the luxury car market until the close of the 20th century.

Wide age range of alumni riders compete in fourth annual Little 5 Alumni Bike Race The 54th running of Little 5 was held on Saturday, April 17, at Blackstock Stadium, and for the fourth time in the history of the race, an alumni race was held in conjunction with the student races. The alumni race is comprised of four races within one, as the race is scored in four age categories: Masters 30 field for all those racers under the age of 39, Masters 40 field for all racers in their 40s, and Masterâ€™s 50 and 60 field. This year the race field consisted of 26 avid cyclists, the largest race field to date for the alumni race. For some 28 DePauw Magazine I Summer 2010

Old DEGold PAUW Weekend October 8-9, 2010 alumni, their interest in cycling began when they participated in the Little 5 race because it was their first exposure to the sport of competitive cycling. Alumni traveled from both coasts of the country and represented graduating classes from 1970-2009. The 50-minute race was a spirited competition that was witnessed by family, friends and students. The alumni race festivities started on Friday when a number of riders who arrived on campus early went on an afternoon group social ride. The casual ride allowed alumni to catch up with some old friends and to make new ones as they cycled through the back roads of Putnam County. Alumni Race director A. Kent Billingsley ’80 said, “The level of interest and support from the alumni this year was outstanding. The Alumni Relations Office,

Student Steering Committee and Professor Kent Menzel were invaluable in helping this year’s event be so successful. We had the largest showing of alumni racers this year as this event continues to gain more and more interest and popularity. Although most of the racers were recreational riders, this year’s race field held an average speed of 21 mph with surges that hit 27 mph. Not too shabby when you consider the largest race group in the field was the Master’s 50 with 13 racers. “The alumni race is open to any alumnus; there is no prerequisite that you must be a former Little 5 rider. If you (both men and women) have taken up the sport of cycling since leaving DePauw, consider joining us next year for the race.” If you have any questions or inquiries about the race, contact Billingsley at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Atlanta and Cincinnati Clubs, Mike Bogers ’01 receive Regional Council and Club Awards The Alumni Board of Directors Programming Committee selected the Atlanta Regional Club, Cincinnati Regional Council and Michael E. Bogers ’01 as recipients of this year’s Regional Council and Club Awards. They were recognized during a dinner on June 10 at The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics as part of the Alumni Reunion Weekend events. The Atlanta Regional Club and Cincinnati Regional Council were recognized for their efforts to significantly improve their regional programming and events. The Atlanta Club increased its number of events to nine and offered a variety of alumni engagement opportunities. Instrumental in their success were Julie A. Trowbridge ’88, club president, and Tobias J. Butler ’04, Alumni Board member. Likewise, the Council in Cincinnati significantly increased its number of events compared to the previous year as well as the variety of event offerings. Cincinnati alumni hosted 11 events,
including two service projects, a career networking event and several downtown networking lunches. David C. Warner ’00 was the lead coordinator of this effort. Bogers received the Individual Council Member Award for encouraging DePauw connections by developing the downtown networking lunch concept, facilitating the lunches in Indianapolis for more than two years, and helping to coordinate them. He has hosted downtown lunches since July 2008 that have featured speakers such as: Gary D. Lemon, director of The Robert C McDermond Center for Management & Entrepreneurship; Brad A. Kelsheimer, vice president for finance and administration; and Carol S. Steele, associate dean of academic affairs and University sustainability coordinator.

Regional Councils and Clubs make a difference with service projects Continuing the tradition of DePauw’s strong connection with community service, nine regional events focusing on service were held during 2009-10. A Regional Council in Cincinnati did not feel that one service event was enough, so members planned two. Four Regional Councils (Chicago, Cincinnati, Putnam County and the Twin Cities) added a social aspect to their service events. The Chicago Regional Council held an event at Corcoran’s Pub in Old Town where alumni supported the Chicago-based, nonprofit organization Alumni for Public Schools. Gathering food for the less fortunate was the focus for the Putnam County Hot Spot. The Cincinnati Regional Council supported the Brighton Center, while the Twin Cities Regional Club held an event for the benefit of Simpson Housing Services. The Greater Washington, D.C., Regional Council assisted with Servathon 2010, which has an 18-year history of bringing together thousands of area volunteers for two extraordinary days of service. Volunteers made a lasting impact at nonprofits and schools in their region by painting, cleaning, landscaping and revitalizing. In April DePauw alumni in the Indianapolis area helped Rebuilding the Wall, Inc. This organization stabilizes and empowers low-income families by renovating vacant inner-city properties and giving families the opportunity for

They combat social injustice by building relationships across racial and socio-economic barriers and stabilize the community by recycling assets within the neighborhood. DePauw alumni volunteers specifically assisted with the construction of a home. Abigail A. Parsons ’04 organized a service event benefiting Reading to Kids in the Los Angeles area. Reading to Kids is dedicated to inspiring underserved children with a love of reading. Volunteers coordinate reading clubs at elementary schools in downtown Los Angeles where they read aloud to children and create arts and crafts projects about the stories. Each child receives a book to take home, and the books read aloud are donated to the school’s library. New York Regional Council members and area alumni gathered in Prospect
Park, Brooklyn, for It’s My Park Day on May 15, 2010. They assisted with cleaning up litter, raking, mulching, planting bulbs, caring for tree pits, painting and more. Alumni then gathered at a local eatery to network and reconnect. On March 6, 2010, Cincinnati alumni and Regional Council members stocked and arranged products in a new Habitat ReStore facility, which opened to the public in mid-March. Habitat ReStores are outlets that accept donated home improvement goods for resale – furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances. Fifteen volunteers participated in this event organized by Rick Carlin ’68. If you are interested in planning or assisting with a service event in your region, send an e-mail to Dana Coffin Moell ’95, assistant director of alumni relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
