HOCKEY VALLEY TIMELINE EARLY YEARS LATE 1800s-EARLY 1900s Many of Penn State’s 300 students play pickup hockey on flooded outdoor rinks. 1906-09 Students primarily from the Pittsburgh area organize a hockey team with the intent to seek official approval for an intercollegiate varsity team by the University’s Athletic Association, which oversaw all Penn State sports. DECEMBER 1909 On Christmas night, the first Penn State hockey team, led by captain Herb Baetz, plays its first-ever intercollegiate game against Carnegie Tech at the Duquesne Gardens in Pittsburgh. Less than a week later, Penn State travels to the Duquesne Gardens once more, and falls to Pittsburgh, 2-1. JANUARY 21, 1910 University’s Athletic Association rejects an official bid to sponsor ice hockey as an official varsity sport. Penn State students fight to elevate the program for the next two decades. WINTER 1938 Eight members of the Sigma Phi fraternity form an independent hockey team.

The team competes in 11 games during the season and compiled a 3-8-0 record.

THE FIRST VARSITY ERA MARCH-MAY 1940 Hockey and skiing are put before the students at the All-College Elections. Two months later, hockey is voted as an official varsity sport as the Athletic Association approved the measure by a 651-35 majority vote. DECEMBER 6, 1940 Penn State plays its first game as a varsity sport at the Shaffer Ice Palace in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The Nittany Lions defeat Carnegie Tech, 3-1, with John Dufford scoring the first goal in Penn State varsity history. After the first season, the University’s Athletic Advisory Board granted hockey full status with full financial support. Up until that time, the team was able to make its own schedule and handle its own finances. The team uses Rec Hall as its practice facility as several attempts for an outdoor rink throughout the years is unsuccessful. 1940-44 SEASONS Although there is on-ice success, the United States’ involvement in World War II, combined with the lack of availability of ice on campus,

1938-39 SEASON Prior to the start of the 1938-39 campaign, Dr. Carl P. Schott, Dean of the School of Physical Education and Athletics, approves appropriations of $100 for the team. Dr. Arthur F. Davis, who also coached the first four seasons of varsity hockey at Penn State, is named the team’s head coach. In the beginning of the season, the team practices indoors at the Armory building or outside on the pond at Whipple Dam, and plays three games. 1939-40 SEASON Penn State joins the Pennsylvania Intercollegiate League with the University of Pennsylvania, Hershey Jr. Cubs, Lehigh and Lafayette.

has a devastating effect on the viability of Penn State Hockey.

With many teams dropping the sport, Penn State only plays four games during the 194243 season, including just two collegiate contests.

Ravaged by the war, Coach Davis and Penn State prepares for the 1943-44 season with only three members from the previous year’s squad after losing most of its members to military and civilian enrollment. With the effects of the war being felt throughout the University, the Athletic Association announces that the suspensions of six sports as a war-time economy measure: hockey, cross country, swimming, gymnastics, tennis and golf. 1946-47 SEASON Following the end of World War II, the team returns for one final season. James O’Hora, a new addition to the football coaching staff, is selected to lead Penn State for the 194647 season. The Nittany Lions are scheduled to play seven games, but four contests are eventually cancelled due to warm weather. Following the season, the Athletic Association drops hockey once more, citing limited facilities.

THE PEGULA FAMILY

GOPSUSPORTS.COM

THE PEGULAS

On Sept. 17, 2010, Penn State graduate, Terry Pegula, and his wife, Kim, donated $88 million to his alma mater—the largest private gift in the history of the school—to fund a state-of-theart, multi-purpose arena and to help elevate the University’s men’s hockey program to the NCAA Division I level. In April 2012, the Pegulas announced they would increase their donation to the Nittany Lion hockey program to $102 million. Thanks to their generosity, Penn State added both men’s and women’s varsity hockey, with both teams beginning play at Pegula Ice Arena in 2013-14. The building includes two ice sheets and serves as the only major ice facility within an 80-mile radius of State College. In addition to providing hockey and figure skating opportunities for the entire Central Pennsylvania region, it is also used for a broad range of campus and community activities. A native of Rochester, New York, Kim Pegula is a 1991 graduate of Houghton College with a degree in communications and was involved with East Resources since 1991. In 2011, Kim donated $12 million to her alma mater to support the construction of new athletic facility, the Kerr-Pegula Sports Complex. Together, the Pegulas have expanded their interests in the sports field by acquiring Atlanta-based France AllPro Athlete Management, a high-profile NFL player agent firm headed by Todd France, in December 2011. The Pegulas also own Impact Sports Performance, an elite athletic training facility in Boca Raton, Florida. Beyond the sports world, Terry and Kim also founded Black River Entertainment, a country music label based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Terry and Kim currently reside in Boca Raton, Florida, and have five children: Michael, Laura, Jessica, Kelly, and Matthew.

EAST RESOURCES

In 1983, 10 years after he graduated from Penn State, Terry Pegula borrowed $7,500 from family and friends to establish East Resources Inc., an independent oil and gas exploration and development company. Over the next 27 years, he built it into one of the largest privately held companies in the United States. In July 2010, Royal Dutch Shell purchased the assets of East Resources Inc. for $4.7 billion. That sale allowed the Pegulas to make their first foray into the hockey world with their transformational gift to Penn State.

BUFFALO SABRES

Back in 1983, Terry Pegula told his business partner, Robert H. Long Jr., “If I ever have more than two nickels to my name, I’m going to buy the Buffalo Sabres one day.” Almost 30 years later, Pegula’s dream came to fruition. On Feb. 22, 2011, Pegula became the fourth owner in Buffalo Sabres franchise history. The day Pegula was introduced as owner, the Sabres were 27-25-6 and sat in ninth place in the Eastern Conference—five points out of a playoff spot. Pegula’s purchase not only reenergized the fan base, but the players as well. With Pegula now at the helm, the Sabres went on a 16-4-4 run over the final 24 games of the season to finish seventh in the East. This included a 9-1-2 record at home, with every remaining home game selling out. The momentum of the new era would stretch well into the offseason as the home of the Sabres—renamed First Niagara Center

NITTANY LION HOCKEY HISTORY

in August 2011—began a multi-million dollar facelift. The renovations, which were completed in time for the 2011-12 season, included a new, state-of-the-art locker room with updated training and rehabilitation areas, player lounge and coaching offices. Along with the locker room transformation, First Niagara Center underwent several other upgrades with a focus on providing a first-rate environment for players and fans quickly earned Buffalo the label of ‘Hockey Heaven.’ In 2012, Pegula looked to make an even bigger impact on the City of Buffalo, using hockey as a catalyst. On Aug. 29, it was announced that the city had selected Pegula and his development team to develop and construct HARBORcenter, a $172 million multipurpose facility that sits directly across from First Niagara Center in the city’s Canalside District. HARBORcenter is anchored by two new NHLsize ice rinks that are open for community use and a 200-room, full-service Marriott hotel. In addition to the ice rinks and hotel, there’s an upscale, hockey-themed sports bar and restaurant, additional retail space and a parking structure. HARBORcenter is now home to Canisius College hockey and helped host multiple international tournaments including the 2015 IIHF U-18 Women’s Championship. It is expected to draw more than 500,000 people to downtown Buffalo annually and, coupled with First Niagara Center, will provide a premier destination for hockey fans, right in the heart of ‘Hockey Heaven.’

BUFFALO BILLS

On Oct. 11, 2014, exactly a year after Pegula Ice Arena debuts, the Pegulas purchased the NFL’s Buffalo Bills for $1.4 billion, saving the franchise from relocating.

UNIVERSITY AND MEDIA INFORMATION PENN STATE UNIVERSITY OLD MAIN

sylvania legislature designated Penn State the Commonwealth’s sole land-grant institution. The lawmakers in effect bestowed on the privately incorporated college a public character. In return for state support, the institution assumed obligations of teaching, research and service that are normally associated with publicly owned land-grant universities in other states. By the 1890s Penn State was making its mark. It ranked among the nation’s 10 largest undergraduate engineering schools, a distinction it still holds. It established one of the nation’s first collegiate agricultural experiment stations, and Professor Whitman Jordan’s pioneering research on using fertilizers for soil enrichment had global impact on crop yields.

Penn State in 1871 became one of the first land-grant schools in the Northeast to admit women, graduated its first international student in 1890, and its first African-American student in 1905.

THE MISSION

THE BEGINNING

THE 20TH CENTURY

Penn State’s historic mission of teaching, research, and public service—launched under the most modest of circumstances more than 150 years ago—now reaches into virtually all parts of Pennsylvania. Consider, for example, that the University now has 24 campuses across the Commonwealth, putting a Penn State education within practical reach of nearly every Pennsylvanian. In fact, nearly 75 percent of Penn State’s undergraduates are Pennsylvania residents.

The University’s presence throughout Pennsylvania today contrasts sharply with its humble beginnings. Chartered as a college of scientific agriculture, the institution was located in rural Centre County after James Irvin, a partner in the Centre Furnace iron works (remains of which can be seen today along East College Avenue), offered to donate 200 acres of farmland for a campus.

In the early 1900s, President Edwin E. Sparks supported a number of efforts to “carry the college to the people,” as he liked to say. Technical institutes were established in various locations statewide for engineering education, beginning with an evening school in Allentown in 1910. In 1912, Penn State helped create a system of county agents in agriculture and home economics. Today, the Penn State World Campus, with its “anywhere, anytime” learning through the Internet, builds on that outreach tradition.

Penn State is Pennsylvania’s largest nongovernmental employer and has employees and expenditures in every one of its 67 counties. The University generates a total economic impact across the Commonwealth that surpasses $8.5 billion annually. Part of that impact is derived from Penn State’s research program, which brings more than $500 million in federal funds to Pennsylvania each year, and an additional $100 million from private industry. Penn State’s outreach and online programs —ranging from 4H to Cooperative Extension, from summer camps to public broadcasting— provide educational and service programs to more than a million Pennsylvania households annually.

Founding President Evan Pugh wanted the fledging institution to embody a new approach to higher education that blended classical studies with subjects that had practical value. He joined similar visionaries in other states in convincing Congress to pass the Morrill Land-Grant Act in 1862. The act gave individual states tracts of federal land to sell; the proceeds supported colleges that agreed to include engineering, science and the liberal arts as well as agriculture in their course of studies. In 1863, the Penn-

But undergraduate education remained foremost. Enrollment surpassed 5,000 students by 1936, including those attending several undergraduate centers that were created for students who, in the depths of the Great Depression, could not afford to leave their hometowns to get a college education. The centers offered the first year of baccalaureate studies and were the predecessors of today’s statewide system of campuses. Thanks to this innovative approach to higher education, Penn State in the 1930s became Pennsylvania’s largest single source of baccalaureate degrees, a distinction it holds to this day.

Following World War II, Penn State underwent unprecedented expansion, first to meet the needs of returning military veterans and later to accommodate the Baby Boom generation. Total enrollment at all Penn State campuses climbed to 40,000 by 1970.

TODAY The University Park campus is Penn State’s administrative and research hub. In addition, there are 19 primarily undergraduate campuses; Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, including the College of Medicine; the Pennsylvania College of Technology; the Penn State Dickinson School of Law, Carlisle campus; the Penn State Great Valley School of Graduate Professional Studies; and the Penn State World Campus. To date, Penn State has awarded nearly 750,000 degrees, hallmarks of an educational experience second to none in quality. In addition, Penn State alumni—including 327,000 in Pennsylvania alone—have job- and social-networking opportunities that no other college or university in the Commonwealth can surpass.

NITTANY LION LEGEND Penn State’s athletic symbol, chosen by the student body in 1906, is the mountain lion which once roamed central Pennsylvania. H.D. “Joe” Mason, a member of the Class of 1907, conducted a one-man campaign to choose a school mascot after seeing the Princeton tiger on a trip with the Penn State baseball team to that New Jersey campus. A student publication sponsored the campaign to select a mascot and Penn State is believed to be the first college to adopt the lion as a mascot. Since Penn State is located in the Nittany Valley at the foot of Mount Nittany, the lion was designated as a Nittany Lion. In regional folklore, Nittany (or Nita-Nee) was a valorous Indian princess in whose honor the Great Spirit caused Mount Nittany to be formed. A later namesake, daughter of chief O-Ko-Cho, who lived near the mouth of Penn’s Creek, fell in love with Malachi Boyer, a trader. The tearful maiden and her lost lover became legend and her name was given to the stately mountain.

LION SHRINE Penn State’s Nittany Lion shrine was dedicated on Oct. 24, 1942, during Homecoming Weekend. Animal sculptor Heinz Warneke and stonecutter Joseph Garatti molded a 13ton block of Indiana limestone into the most recognizable symbol of Penn State. The shrine was chosen from six models submitted by

2017-18 PENN STATE HOCKEY

THE LION SHRINE Warneke. The shrine is a gift of the Class of 1940 and rests in a natural setting of trees near Recreation Building. The site was chosen because of its accessibility, the surrounding trees and the fact that the sculpture would not be dwarfed by nearby buildings.

BLUE & WHITE Penn State’s student-athletes are instantly identified by their blue and white uniforms — but those weren’t the original school colors. A three-member committee representing the sophomore, junior and senior classes was appointed in October of 1887 to develop color options from which the student body would select the school’s official colors. Dark pink and black was the unanimous choice of the student body after considering the color combinations presented by the committee. Soon many students and the baseball team were sporting pink and black striped blazers and caps. However, problems arose when the pink faded to white after several weeks of exposure to the sun. The students then opted for blue, rather than black, and white. The official announcement of the new choice was made on March 18, 1890.

7 UNIVERSITY & MEDIA INFORMATION

The University also emerged on the national scene as a research powerhouse in fields as diverse as dairy science, acoustics, psychology, and diesel engineering. The expansion of research went hand in hand with a steady increase in the number of graduate students. The University awarded its first graduate degree—a master’s degree in scientific agriculture—in 1862, and the Graduate School was established in 1922. But overall graduate enrollment remained modest until the 1950s, then swelled steadily. In the past ten years alone, Penn State had awarded more than 30,000 master’s, doctoral, and other advanced degrees.

ERIC J. BARRON

P

President • Fourth Year • Florida State ‘72 (B.S.) • University of Miami ‘76 (M.S.) University of Miami ‘80 (Ph.D.) • Hired as Penn State President Feb. 17, 2014 • Led Florida State as president • Served as dean of PSU’s Earth & Mineral Sciences

Eric J. Barron took the helm of Pennsylvania’s flagship public university on May 12, 2014, arriving from Florida State University, where he had been president for four years. No stranger to Penn State, he had served on the faculty of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences from 1986-2002 and as dean of the college from 2002-06. Dr. Barron returned to Penn State from his presidency at Florida State, bringing with him nearly 35 years of leadership experience in academic administration, education, research and public service, and a track record as a talented manager of fiscal policy within large and complex institutions. Dr. Barron led Florida State to two consecutive U.S. News and World Report rankings as the nation’s “most efficiently operated” institution of higher education. Dr. Barron earned a bachelor of science degree in geology at Florida State in 1973 before moving on to the University of Miami, where he earned master’s and doctoral degrees in oceanography, in 1976 and 1980, respectively. Dr. Barron spent 20 years of his career at Penn State, serving as dean of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences from 2002-06, and as founding director of the Earth System Science Center, one of the first major initiatives focused on the total study of Earth as a system, from 1986-2002. He also had a simultaneous appointment as director of the Earth and Mineral Sciences Environment Institute from 1998 to 2002. In 1999, he was named Distinguished Professor of Geosciences at Penn State, and during his tenure as director, Industry Week magazine ranked him among “50 R&D Stars to Watch.” An accomplished scientist with a long background in atmospheric research, Dr. Barron served as director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) from 2008-10 and as dean of the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin from 2006-08. Early in his career he was a postdoctoral research fellow and scientist at

the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, a federal research center focusing on atmospheric and related science issues. Over the decades, Dr. Barron has lent his significant expertise in the areas of atmospheric science and the geosciences to many national committees and federal organizations. As leader of Penn State, Dr. Barron oversees a research enterprise of more than $800 million and 24 campuses, including two law schools and a College of Medicine in Hershey, Pa., as well as an internationally recognized online educational enterprise known as the World Campus. Penn State’s current enrollment is approximately 98,000 students, and it boasts the world’s largest dues-paying alumni association. During his tenure as president of Penn State, Dr. Barron has made access and affordability; student engagement; economic development; job creation and student career success; technology and diversity and demographics priorities. His Invent Penn State initiative aims at ramping up investment in economic development and student career success. By leveraging the size and broad research strengths of the University, Dr. Barron has made it a goal that Penn State will be a driver for job creation, entrepreneurship, and economic development, and will accelerate the transfer of new ideas into useful products and processes that encompass a broad range. Over the past year, Invent Penn State has resulted in the launch of 20 entrepreneurial centers and innovation hubs across Pennsylvania.

2017-18 PENN STATE HOCKEY

Prior to moving to Berkeley, Barbour was the deputy director of athletics at Notre Dame, serving as the university’s senior athletic administrator from July 2002 to September 2004. She previously held an associate athletic director position there starting in 2000. Barbour’s career in intercollegiate athletic administration spans more than 30 years, beginning as a field hockey assistant coach and lacrosse administrative assistant at the University of Massachusetts in 1981. She has since served as assistant athletic director at Northwestern and in 1991 was recruited to Tulane as an associate athletic director. In 1996, Barbour was appointed Tulane’s director of athletics at age 36, and during her three years overseeing the program, Green Wave teams won 12 conference championships. In her first year in the position, the school captured four conference titles, a feat never before accomplished in Tulane history. She also hired Tommy Bowden as head football coach during her first year. Bowden proceeded in 1997 to post the Green Wave’s first winning season (7-4) in 16 years, and then directed the school to a 12-0 record, a Conference USA championship and a No. 7 national ranking the following season as the 1998 Liberty Bowl champions. Born Dec. 2, 1959, in Annapolis, Md., Barbour grew up in a military family. Her father was a career aviator in the U.S. Navy, and her family lived in various U.S. locations as well as in Western Europe during her childhood. Barbour graduated cum laude in 1981 with a B.S. degree in physical education from Wake Forest, where she was a four-year letterwinner and served as captain of the field hockey team. She also played two varsity seasons of women’s basketball. Barbour earned advanced degrees at both Massachusetts (an M.S. in sports management in 1983) and Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management (an M.B.A. in 1991). Between master’s programs, Barbour served as assistant field hockey and lacrosse coach at Northwestern from 1982-84. She also held the position of director of recruiting services during that period, before being promoted to assistant athletic director for intercollegiate programs in 1984, a position she held until 1989.

Barron named Barbour the Nittany Lions’ ninth Director of Athletics on July 26, 2014 after serving 10 years as Director of Athletics at the University of California. Barbour brings to Penn State more than 30 years of varied experiences as a collegiate administrator and coach, with a demonstrated record of championships, academic success, innovation, facility modernization and revenue growth. Barbour directs Penn State’s 31-sport, broad-based program that supports approximately 850 student-athletes and an Intercollegiate Athletics staff of more than 300. Serving as the Director of Athletics at Cal since 2004, Barbour guided the Golden Bears through one of the most successful periods in school history. Under her direction, the athletic department became one of the consistently elite programs in the country. Barbour’s 10year term as AD was the longest tenure for the department since men’s and women’s athletics merged into a single entity in 1992. During her tenure overseeing Cal’s 30-sport program, the Golden Bears won 20 team national championships, 97 individual national titles, finished in the top 10 in the annual Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings six times, including a program-best third in 2011, and reached record levels in ticket sales, sponsorships and fundraising. Cal student-athletes continued their high academic achievement in 2013-14, with numerous programs earning public recognition from the NCAA on the Academic Progress Rate and Graduation Success Rate metrics with 100 percent scores. New coach Sonny Dykes led a resurgence in the football program’s academic achievement with a 969 APR score, 18 points higher than the Division I football average, and a record-setting program GPA. Under Barbour’s leadership, the average grade-point average for Cal’s 30 teams was nearly 3.0 and the women’s golf team achieved the highest team GPA in Cal’s recorded history when it posted a 3.54 GPA during the fall 2013 semester. More than 175 student-athletes annually earned academic all-conference notice, and 17 teams received national recognition for their NCAA Academic Progress Rates over the last five years.
