Psi Upsilon’s

Planned Giving Endow Your Gift If your Annual gift is:

Amount needed for an endowment:

$100.............................................$2,000 $250............................................$5,000 $500...........................................$10,000 $1,000........................................$20,000 $2,500.......................................$50,000 $5,000......................................$100,000 * Assuming 5 percent of the investment income is spent per year

The Challenge: Each year, for many years, a Psi U brother has written a $1,000 check to Psi Upsilon’s Annual Fund. He looks forward to making the donation, and Psi Upsilon’s Annual Fund has grown accustomed to his generosity. But he is getting older. What will happen to his legacy of support after he dies? The Solution: A financial advisor suggests that the brother consider creating an endowment, a type of gift that would allow his generosity to continue…forever. To establish an endowment, he makes a lump sum $20,000 donation, which Psi Upsilon’s Annual Fund invests. Only a portion of the investment income, however, is spent each year. The remainder of the income is reinvested in the fund, which allows the fund value to grow and support annual payouts indefinitely. The Benefits: The brother earns a $20,000 income tax charitable deduction on his taxes this year. The donation also reduces the size of his taxable estate at death. Psi Upsilon’s Annual Fund receives the benefit of the brother’s generosity in perpetuity. Planned gifts have been vital throughout the history of Psi Upsilon. Our farsighted brothers who make planned gifts have the satisfaction of knowing their legacy will be beneficial to Psi U for generations to come.

Ben Cherrington:

Psi U G a m m a M a k e s i t t o Fe n w a y Pa r k

By Ron Ziemba, Gamma 1964

As Casey Stengel used to say, “You could look it up.” Yes, it’s right there, in the record books, in black and white: On the evening of October 27, 2004, the Boston Red Sox completed an unlikely but inevitable four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals to capture their first World Series championship since 1918. And exactly three years and one day later, the Sox replicated that amazing feat to become the first team in the 21st century to win two world championships.

Ben Cherington, Gamma ’96 (Amherst College)

For Red Sox Nation, the twin series sweeps – a first for Major League Baseball – were heady stuff indeed, following a mere 86 years of frustration. For Ben Cherington, Gamma ’96 (Amherst), World Series success didn’t take quite so long, but was arguably just as sweet. Ben joined the Red Sox in 1998 as a scout in the mid-Atlantic region at the age of 24 – youthful even for a baseball executive. Ben rose through the front-office ranks to his current position, vice president of player personnel for the World Champions. Now, he and his colleagues are enjoying the fruits of their labor.


writing type of person, not oriented to the sciences. To be completely honest, I enjoyed the academic experience there, and I think I gained a lot in terms of how to write and think – skills I use a lot today.” Another aspect of Ben’s positive experience at Amherst was finding and joining the Gamma chapter of Psi Upsilon. “I got to know Psi U my freshman year. A handful of baseball players were brothers, and they invited me to a couple of gatherings” If the baseball team provided a sense of security at Amherst for this small-town guy, Psi U provided another. “I was pretty well prepared for Amherst, but there were times in class early on when I was probably a little intimidated,” he recalls. “The Psi U experience helped me keep my spirits up, and, frankly, helped me buy some time to adjust to the academic load.” Ben believes fraternities definitely have a place in higher education in the 21st century. “Certainly when there’s criticism, it’s centered around the social aspects, partying and the like. But I remember a lot of those parties fondly. And in addition, there are other important aspects of the Psi U experience.

Ben was playing Legion ball when he was spotted by Bill Thurston, Amherst’s legendary baseball coach. The summer after his junior year at Lebanon High, Ben was pitching for the Hartford, Vermont, Post 26 American Legion team.

Some say that the only students who major in English are really smart people who have no clue what they want to do with their lives. But that wasn’t the case with Ben. “By my junior year, I was pretty sure I wanted to work in baseball, in some capacity.”

Ben majored in English at Amherst, with a focus on British literature. “English fit my skill set and my comfort level at the time,” he says. “I am certainly a reading and

But not, as it happens, as a player. Following a good start in Amherst baseball, Ben hurt his shoulder toward the end of his sophomore year. That was the end of any remaining

dreams of becoming a player. “Even before that, I should have known that I would not have a career playing major league baseball,” Ben says. “But after the injury, I knew for sure.” Ben missed most of the baseball season as a junior. Then, instead of pitching in his senior year, he played a little outfield and served as pitching coach. “The playing experience at Amherst didn’t end the way I was hoping it would,” he recalls. “It was during that time that I figured out that I’d have to make a living at this game some other way, off the field.” Ben stayed on as a pitching coach for a year after his graduation while pursuing a master’s degree in sports management nearby at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. “I knew I wanted to get into baseball, but I hadn’t secured a full-time job yet,” he recalls. “I also wanted to coach at Amherst, and this gave me the opportunity to do that.” Ben broke into Major League Baseball in 1998, with the help of Coach Thurston’s widespread contacts in organized baseball and the sizable network of Amherst College graduates working in Major League Baseball. “I’d started following the game closely, so I knew where most of the Amherst guys were working,” Ben recalls. Among the Amherst players Ben met in this way were Dan Duquette, general manager of the Red Sox during the 1990s, and Neal Huntington, who worked for the Montreal Expos, then served as assistant general manager for the Cleveland Indians and is now general manager for the Pittsburgh Pirates. At least 16 former Amherst College players are now working in Major League Baseball. Several of them have not only played under Thurston, but also coached under him. This “Amherst pipeline” probably began with Harry Dalton, who was general

manager of the powerhouse Baltimore Orioles teams that won World Series titles in 1969 and 1971. “There’s been a pretty significant history of Amherst alums working on the front-office side of the game,” Ben notes. Ben’s first job in Major League Baseball came through Neal Huntington, who was then assistant general manager for the Cleveland Indians. Huntington helped Ben get an interview for a full-year internship with the Indians doing video advance scouting. At the end of that year, Dan Duquette called to offer a job with the Red Sox as a scout in the mid-Atlantic region. Ben jumped at the offer and has been there ever since. At the end of the 1999 season, Duquette invited Ben to come to Boston and work in the front office. In Ben’s current position, vice president of player personnel for the World Champion Red Sox, he is charged with “finding the best amateur players, drafting and signing them, and helping them become the best players they can be.” Ben is very high on the Red Sox’ new ownership team of John Henry, Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino. “There’s a similarity between the Red Sox as an organization and Amherst as a college,” he says. “There’s an incredible yearning for information, a thirst for knowledge, an intellectual curiosity that extends to every area of the baseball operations.” There’s also the sense that there is a larger responsibility to the game of baseball, just because it means so much to so many people.” Ben puts it this way: “Those of us who are involved in some small way have a responsibility to try to help the game thrive. This is a very focused effort over 12 months of the year to build a team that has the best chance to succeed, year-in and year-out.”

John Couture:

P r a cticing Psycholo g y w i t h t h e C l e v e l a n d I n d i a n s

By Ron Ziemba, ’64 (Amherst)

For some people of a certain age, Bristol, Connecticut is perhaps best known for “The Bristol Stomp,” a song made popular by the Dovells in 1961. Bristol is also a town with a number of diverse and vibrant ethnic neighborhoods, and a rich history of industrial innovation. In recent years, it also became a city where factories were being closed down and jobs were being lost.

Weiler explains the first images of the Mars landscape.

John Couture, Gamma ‘92, at spring training with the Cleveland Indians.

For John Couture, Gamma ’92 (Amherst), growing up in Bristol in the 1980s, Bristol was a place to play baseball. And that’s what he did -- in pickup games, Little League (where his dad coached), Bristol High, American Legion and anywhere else he could find a game. And, when he graduated from Bristol High School, “I wanted to go to college to play baseball,” he recalls. “Baseball was my first love.” John is an Amherst College graduate and a member of the Gamma chapter of Psi Upsilon. John is still working in the game he loves -- not as a player, but as a key part of one of the most innovative baseball operations organizations in Major League Baseball. In John’s case, the job title is sports psychologist. In high school, John was a third baseman with a sharp batting eye and some lefthanded power. He achieved notoriety as a 15-year-old high-school freshman on the


city’s popular and well-traveled American Legion team. Beginning in his sophomore year, college baseball coaches came to Bristol to see him play. One of those coaches was Bill Thurston of Amherst College. Plenty of schools were after John, some offering scholarship money. But Bill Thurston knew he had an advantage, because John Couture was not only a solid third baseman and a hitter with promise. He was also a straight-A student who did his homework and studied for tests. “I always wanted to be the best one out there,” John recalls. If I didn’t get a good grade on a test, I’d be mad at myself.” In short, John was internally motivated. John chose Amherst for three reasons: The school’s academic reputation, the opportunity to crack the starting lineup as a freshman, and Bill Thurston. “Coach Thurston was a well respected baseball man,” John says. “He was a teacher of the game, and he had a lot of contacts in professional baseball. He sold me on the school.” “Some of my teachers were kind of stunned when I was accepted at Amherst,” John recalls. “And there was definitely an intimidation factor in the classroom.” But John weathered the storm and graduated in 1992 with a major in psychology. It was John’s four-year roommate and best friend, Stephan Rapaglia, Gamma ’92, who suggested that the two first-year students

attend a Friday-night gathering at the Psi Upsilon fraternity house. “He’d met a guy in Psi U and asked me if I wanted to go to a party on Railroad Street,” John says. “I wasn’t looking to join a fraternity, but once we got to know the people in Psi U, it was such a diverse and active crowd, we thought it was great – upperclassmen, females, athletes, non-athletes, every major you could think of.”

Then came the call. Neal Huntington, a teammate of John’s at Amherst, had just been named director of player development for the Cleveland Indians. Neal had created a new position in his organization, and wanted to talk with John about it. The job was sports psychologist – imparting a full-fledged curriculum in sports psychology to every player in the Indians’ minor league system.

John and Stephan both participated in rushing that fall, and became Psi U pledges. “I didn’t want to be hazed, or told what to do, or looked down on as a pledge,” John recalls. “But they opened their arms and let us in, and they taught us about Psi U. It was a pretty neat experience.”

“That was only ten years ago, but the job was novel in baseball at the time,” John recalls. The Indians have a reputation for being cutting edge in things like that. They were the first team to establish a fulltime position for this.”

John was active in Psi U all four years at Amherst – as rush chair, house chair, vice president, and other offices. “My experience with Psi U was the best that a college student could ever have,” he says. “My best friends from college are all Psi Us.” As a baseball player, John hit over .400 his freshman year and was named the team’s Rookie of the Year. As a senior, he was captain and Most Valuable Player, and won second-team allNew England recognition. But something else happened during John’s senior year: He hurt his throwing arm. Since arm strength is one thing scouts look for in infielders, John knew then that a professional contract, a longshot possibility up to this point, was now out of the question. “And I was okay with that,” he recalls. “I’d already secured a position as a teacher and coach at a prep school in Connecticut, and I was reconciled to not playing professional baseball.” For the next few years, John taught and coached at a series of New England schools (including a year as a Thurston assistant) while he pursued a master’s degree. As he studied, taught and coached, John still thought about Major League Baseball. When John’s wife completed medical school and secured a residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, they moved there. John taught science and coached soccer, basketball and baseball at the Gilman School nearby, enrolled at Towson State, and received a master’s degree in psychology and education a year later.

Working with Dr. Charlie Mahr, the Indians’ senior sports psychologist, who worked primarily with the major league players, John helped develop a sports psychology curriculum -a proactive, scientifically based approach to enhancing players’ performance using mental skills. “In spring training, I meet with small groups of minor league players in a classroom, like a teacher teaching English or math,” John explains. “We talk about mental discipline, focus, self-esteem, accurate evaluation of one’s performance and many other subjects. In addition, I meet with all the minor league players individually in my office. Every player has a different path, but the principles are consistent,” he says. Is it fair to say that some players do not warm to the idea of using psychology to improve performance in a game based largely on instinct? “Some players have doubts at first,” John acknowledges. “But it’s easier when you have players like Grady Sizemore, C.C. Sabathia, Jhonny (CQ) Peralta and others as graduates of the program, now having success at the major league level. That gives the program credibility.” John says he’s worked with about 90 percent of the players on the Indians’ major league club. So John is still a teacher, he loves his job and he just signed a new two-year contract. “I like seeing people I work with improve their performance, maybe because of something I did or said. All those prep schools I taught at were good preparation for what I do today,” he says.

“They opened their arms and let us in, and they taught us about Psi U. It was a pretty neat experience”



165th Convention The 165th Psi Upsilon Convention was held June 27-29 at the International Office in Indianapolis. Below are some highlights. Next summer’s Convention will be June 26-28, 2009 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Leadership Institute

Learning to organize, manage, lead, motivate and build consensus results not only in successful chapters but to success in life. At the 2008 Leadership Institute, undergraduates sought to master the four competencies of recruitment success: skills development, product knowledge, audience understanding and motivation. While undergraduates focused on recruitment and retention of new members, alumni addressed the challenges of advising 21st century college students. Alumni advisors discussed the unique nature of this cohort, focusing on its learning preferences, communication tactics and general philosophy, and how it differs from many alumni who find themselves advising chapters.

1833 Club

The historic Columbia Club was the site of the 1833 Club reception. The Columbia Club was established by a contingent of Indianapolis’ most distinguished residents to support Benjamin Harrison in his election as the nation’s 25th president in 1888. Bill Wishard, Delta Delta ’64 (Williams College) talked about the history of the club and downtown Indianapolis while Ted Nelson, Omega ’10 (Chicago) improvised at the piano.

International Office

Psi Upsilon’s rich heritage of documents, journals, photographs and other historical resources were on display at the International Office for the delegates’ visit. Of particular interest was the journal kept by Henry Poor, Gamma ’39 (Amherst), during the summer of 1938 as he travelled New York, New England and the Midwest recruiting for the Gamma chapter. The journal revealed that over a period of 36 days, Henry travelled 5,946 miles on a budget of $200 (exactly). Everyone attending had the opportunity to take up a shovel and add some soil in a tree planting ceremony.


The final banquet recognized those chapters that received awards by the Convention. It also honored Thomas T. Hanford, Gamma ’62 for his service as president of The Psi Upsilon Foundation and Mark D. Bauer, Omega ’83 who ended his term as president of the Executive Council. New Executive Council president James A. Swanke, Jr. Rho ’80 (Wisconsin) welcomed Samuel J. Tinaglia, Omega ’88 (Chicago) the incoming Foundation president and presented Mark with the first Executive Council past president’s medallion.


Civil War-Era Scrapbook Found A few years ago, while scanning eBay for Psi U memorabilia, David A. B. Brown, Epsilon Phi ’66, happened upon an item that seemed too good to be true. A scrapbook from the Psi Chapter (Hamilton College) dating from the late 1850s was available for bidding. David jumped on the chance to acquire the scrapbook and waited anxiously for it to arrive. When it was delivered to his door, he found an amazing book full of letters, programs, chapter reports, receipts and a history of not only the Psi chapter, but of Psi Upsilon Fraternity in the late 19th century. The scrapbook was taken to Harvard, where a team of experts carefully separated the items that had been damaged by time, restored them and placed them in state-of the-art archival pouches. The materials have been donated to the Fraternity’s archives and have been carefully catalogued. Although it has not been determined that any valuable signatures were included in the collection, the project has shed some light on the business of the Fraternity beginning in 1858, during the Civil War, through 1878. Items of note include:

• Engraved invitations to conventions hosted by Zeta, Kappa, Psi, Theta and other chapters

• Petitions for full chapter status from the Iota, Upsilon, Phi, Pi and Beta Beta chapters as well

as discussions pertaining to expansion at Hobart College and Western Reserve

• Orders for the 1858 College Catalogue: 47 cents each

• Orders for copies of the 1862 Convention records: $4 each

• A notice of shipment from American Express dated 1857

• A receipt for the purchase of a chandelier for the Psi Chapter

• Countless death notices and letters in memoriam

• An act of the Connecticut legislature incorporating the chapter as the Trumbull

Trust Association

• A report from Brig. Gen. James C. Rice, Beta ’54, on the Battle of the Wilderness (1864)

• Requests for members of other fraternities to affiliate with Psi Upsilon

• Convention poetry

• Expulsions

• Sanctions for public intoxication

• Convention regrets and replies

• Recommendations for membership

• Fundraising pledge to the Psi Chapter

• A bill for renting a piano in 1869: $9.30

The scrapbook was a memento of the Psi chapter at Hamilton College covering 20 years of Fraternity history. It brings to mind the importance of collecting and storing the history of the chapters today. Websites come and go, and software quickly becomes obsolete. If your chapter doesn’t have a physical scrapbook, encourage your historian to begin collecting significant items

“Encourage your historian to begin collecting significant items now. Don’t let this era of Psi Upsilon wither and fade to cyberdust.”

now. Don’t let this era of Psi Upsilon wither and fade to cyberdust. Psi Upsilon is deeply indebted to David Brown for his thoughtful gift which will give many more generations of Psi U brothers insight into what life was like 150 years ago.


Dartmouth Psi U Earns Pulitzer for Work in China Jake Hooker, Zeta ’95 (Dartmouth) earned a Pulitzer Prize for his stories on toxic ingredients in medicine and other everyday products imported from China, leading to crackdowns by American and Chinese officials. Jake has lived in China for the past eight years, starting as a Peace Corps volunteer. For two years, he taught English at a middle school in Wanxian, a small town along the middle reach of the Yangtze River, near the Three Gorges. In his free time there, he learned Chinese. He published his first newspaper article, about his life in Wanxian, in The Boston Globe in 2001. In 2003, Jake returned to China to work for the Surmang Foundation, a nongovernmental organization that runs a free health clinic for nomads in eastern Tibet. Jake has traveled to most places in China writing about rural life, AIDS, ethnic identity and archaeology. Since 2006, he has contributed research and reporting to a wide range of China coverage for the The New York Times.

Sigma Phi Receives Psi U’s 45th Charter Psi Upsilon’s newest chapter was installed at St. Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania, on November 3, 2007. To receive a Psi Upsilon charter, a group must meet 15 standards which ensure the group’s longterm viability. Establishing a detailed budget and recruiting new members, and alumni and faculty advisors are some of the important steps in preparing the case for acceptance. Once the group has met the standards, they prepare a petition which is sent to each chapter and alumni association. According to the Psi Upsilon Constitution, votes must be cast within 20 days. A majority of ‘yes’ votes is required to earn the charter. The last charter granted was given to the Alpha Omicron chapter at NJIT in 1999. St. Francis University is the oldest Franciscan university in the United States. Founded by six Irish friars in 1847, it is home to 2,000 students. Brothers of the Sigma Phi are a diverse group. From varsity athletes and Ultimate Frisbee to the Investment Club and honor societies, the 31 men have varied interests. The St. Francis University Greek Life Advisor, Bobby Anderson, had this to say about the chapter: “These young men have redefined fraternity on our campus. They are the largest fraternity on campus in terms of membership, and they have consistently held the highest academic marks of all the fraternities. They display creativity in how they plan and market their events, and they have shown a strong sense of community through collaborating with other student organizations.” Last year, the Sigma Phi hosted several all campus events including Bouncy Boxing, a campus cleanup, a tag sale and Hunk Fest.

Transformers at the Castle In June, Director Michael Bay, Xi ’86 (Wesleyan) filmed portions of the new Transformers film on the University of Pennsylvania campus including a scene in the Tau chapter and in other locations around southeast Pennsylvania. The Castle was used for a scene at a fraternity party, and a few of the brothers were used as extras. The film is scheduled for release in the summer of 2009. Not to worry, no bids will be offered to Bumblebee, shown at left.

Robert O. Anderson, Oi l m an f o r t h e D ecades

Robert O. Anderson, Omega ‘39 (University of Chicago), died December 2, 2007, at his home in Roswell, N.M. He was 90. The cause was complications of a fall, his son Phelps Anderson said. According to his obituary in The New York Times, Anderson was an oilman whose Stetson-size accomplishments included building Atlantic Richfield into an industry giant; discovering oil in Alaska; becoming America’s largest rancher; and giving generously to environmental causes. It was Mr. Anderson’s insistence on drilling one more exploratory well on the North Slope in 1967 — after a succession of failures — that led to the discovery of what is still the largest oil field yet found in North America; it has produced billions of barrels of crude and accounts for a fifth of domestic oil production. “It was like winning the Irish Sweepstakes, and the odds were about the same,” Mr. Anderson said in an interview with Forbes in 1993. He told The Los Angeles Times in 1989, “There’s no question that if we hadn’t made a discovery, it would have been the last well drilled on the North Slope for a good many years.” Mr. Anderson also led the seven-company effort to develop the Alaskan oil pipeline in 1974. In 1982, he negotiated the first American offshore drilling operation in China. Even two decades after his retirement and even after Atlantic Richfield was bought by BP seven years ago, Mr. Anderson stood out as perceptive, unpredictable and outspoken. He was an oilman who warned of global warming caused by fossil-fuel consumption in the 1980s, and more than once advocated higher taxes on his industry. He rescued two flailing publications, The Observer, a British newspaper, in 1977, and Harper’s magazine in 1980.

Robert attended the Laboratory Elementary and High Schools of the University of Chicago and went on to a twoyear college program at the university, majoring in economics. During summers, he worked on pipelines in Texas. His goals shifted from architecture to petroleum, and he pored over geology and engineering books to educate himself. After graduating in 1939, he worked for the American Mineral Spirits Company, a subsidiary of Pure Oil. In 1941, his father helped him and his brothers buy a refinery in New Mexico. Over the next 15 years, he bought and improved other refineries in the Southwestern states. He also began wildcatting for new fields, and in 1957 discovered the large Empire-Abo field in southeastern New Mexico. He was not always so lucky: he passed up a lease in Colorado offered for $90,000 that eventually yielded 400 million barrels of oil. “Never look back in this business,” Mr. Anderson said. “If you do, you’ll lose your nerve.” In 1963, Mr. Anderson merged his company into the Atlantic Refining Company of Philadelphia. Two years later, he was chairman and chief executive. He led the company through two mergers, the first with Richfield Oil of Los Angeles, forming Arco, and the second with Sinclair Oil. The combined company was the nation’s seventh-biggest oil company. Mr. Anderson and Thornton F. Bradshaw, Arco’s president, set a goal of becoming less dependent on foreign oil. The Prudhoe Bay find was a huge step in this direction. They also sought to balance Arco’s production, transportation, refining and marketing operations. They disposed of half of the company’s 20,000 gas stations. Mr. Anderson is survived by his wife of 68 years, the former Barbara Herrick Phelps; their daughters, Katherine Denton of Tucson, Maria Anderson, Julia Smith and Beverly Crane, all of Santa Fe, N.M., and Barbara Kryder of Waban, Mass.; their sons, Phelps Anderson of Roswell, N.M., and Robert Bruce Anderson of Albuquerque; 20 grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

Robert Orville Anderson was born in Chicago on April 13, 1917, to Hugo A. Anderson and the former Hilda Nelson.

Ducker’s novel guarantees a temporary, giant romp in the privileged playpen of the rich and famous. He also assures the reader that good, clean living and hardworking people can sometimes finish on top.” Ducker’s work has been featured in the nation’s leading literary magazines, including the Yale, Hudson, Sewanee, and Southern Reviews and Poetry. Honors include the Macallan prize and a nomination for the Pulitzer. He attributes his skills to hours of sedulous wool gathering at the Zeta chapter.

Bruce A. Burton, Kappa ’67 (Bowdoin College) has recently published The 3 D’s – Democracy, Divinity, and Drama – an Essay on Gender & Destiny. The indexed essay and reference text spans 10,000 years in its study of Gender Balance and the Natural Law origins of Democracy. Similarly, in terms of natural law, the epilogue reveals how the death of Jane McCrea, in a Homeric repetition of history, influenced the American struggle for independence and the rebirth of democracy in America after its disappearance from Athens some 2,000 years earlier.


As a trading coach and financial advisor, Bennett McDowell, Pi ’79 (Syracuse) has used his own proprietary trading system, Applied Reality Trading (ART®) to enhance the performance of his clients’ portfolios.

E. Benjamin Skinner, Xi ’98 (Wesleyan University) published his first book, A Crime So Monstrous, which documents current slave trade throughout the world. As a reporter who lives in Brooklyn, Skinner presents a shocking report on the slavery conditions on five continents.


James Yannes, Theta ’59 (Union College) methodically researched financial data “from a plethora of resources” in order to maximize his investment strategy. Friends frequently asked him to share the information which he has compiled in his first published book, Astonishing Investment Facts and Wisdom, a 5-Year Retrospective.

tAu BrothEr IS NAtIoNAl FItNESS ExPErt Jim Karas, Tau ’83 (Penn) realized while still an undergraduate that his fitness level was less than acceptable. At Penn, he smoked until the day he found himself out of breath while climbing stairs at the Castle. After graduating and working on Wall Street for a few years, he found the pounds were sneaking up on him. To rid himself of the extra weight, Jim joined the running craze of the ’90s only to find that, despite logging miles of strenuous running, he didn’t lose weight. According to Jim, cardio training is not the answer to weight loss or fitness. He developed a four-phase program that emphasizes interval strength training to boost metabolism. Jim does a fitness segment on Good Morning America and has a personal training business in Chicago and New York

Psi U Alumnus Gives Back, With Interest Thomas A. Leghorn, Delta ’77 received a Psi Upsilon Foundation scholarship while he was a student at New York University, but he feels the experience he has had as a member of Psi U has given him much more than monetary rewards. Now a senior partner at Wilson, Elsner, Moskowitz, Edelman & Dicker, a law firm in New York City, Tom has made a point of making a donation to the Annual Fund every year since graduation. He also has a life insurance policy that names the Psi Upsilon Foundation as a beneficiary.

T ho m as A . Leg h or n , D e lta ‘7 7 ( New Yo r k Unive r sit y )

“I give every year, and I intend to continue to do so,” Tom says. “Whatever I participate in, when I leave I want to leave it with more than when I got there.” Feeling like he was just one of many NYU students to pass through the university in a few years, Tom was especially struck as a sophomore by the alumni who remained active members in Psi U for many years. He remembers Joe Esquirol Delta ’17, who at the time was a member for 60 years, and other alumni who graduated as early as 1912. Tom and his wife, Theresa, have two children. Nicholas is a sophomore at Penn State, and Julianna is in high school.

Jim Swanke Preserves More than Timberland Five thousand acres of northern Wisconsin timberland is not what most people would consider a hobby; for Jim Swanke, Rho ’80 (Wisconsin), it is a passion. When not traveling to advise large corporations on risk management, Jim is an advocate for the management and preservation of timberland. Jim came to Psi Upsilon as part of recolonization effort at the University of Wisconsin. Alumni from the Rho gave a list of potential members to Psi U field director Mike Huffman, Zeta ’77 (Dartmouth) who headed the recruitment effort. Mike presented Jim with an opportunity unlike any other available on Madison’s campus.

Jim Swanke , R h o ‘8 0 (Wisco nsin)

Jim received his BBA and MBA in finance and risk management from the University of Wisconsin. He found first job in Chicago with Watson Wyatt where worked with James R. Favor on a feasibility study to establish a captive insurance company for the Greek market. Jim looked at the frequency and severity of losses by fraternities and sororities in the 1980s. He could see that the trend was not good – it rivaled the medical malpractice crisis that was getting lots of attention at that time. As the result of his risk management work, Jim gained the attention of many in the fraternity and sorority world. Jim helped develop Psi U’s first risk management policy and presented it at a Psi Upsilon Convention in the late 80s. Soon thereafter, he became treasurer of Psi Upsilon’s Executive Council, a position he has held for 15 years. At this summer’s Convention, Jim became the 22nd president of the Executive Council.

Beyond “GAMMIE” – The Fraternal Journey of Foundation President Tom Hanford Perhaps most surprising about Tom Hanford’s role as president of the Psi Upsilon Foundation is that he never thought he would be active nationally. During his undergraduate years at the Gamma, Tom served as treasurer for two years and in 1961 was named the Gamma’s Outstanding Junior. After graduation, Tom pursued his MBA at Harvard. In 1972, he contacted the Gamma Chapter Corporation, the alumni group providing assistance and support to the undergraduates. “My main motivation for getting involved was to do whatever small part I could to give back for my own outstanding experience in Gammie. Psi U is a great institution and I Tom Hanf ord, Ga m m a ‘ 6 2

felt it was worthy of preservation.”

(A mherst)

Tom Hanford hopes every alumnus will stay involved at some level. The opportunities are many:

Order of the


The most direct and effective way to ensure the success of Psi Upsilon is with your gift to the Annual Fund. To sustain that success, the Psi Upsilon Foundation has established the Order of the Owl, recognizing those brothers who make three-year pledges of $1,000 or more annually. Each year Psi Upsilon provides the Archons Academy, the Leadership Institute, oncampus support of each chapter and educational materials to every one of its chapters. The Order of the Owl permits Psi U to plan better and to use contributions more effectively. And as a donor, you can free yourself of those pesky solicitation letters for three years. For more information about becoming a member of the Order of the Owl, contact Mariann Williams. Psi Upsilon is grateful to the following brothers who made pledges:

Archons Academy Leadership education can be taught in the classroom, but it is best learned by experience. Most alumni agree that the leadership experience gained in their undergraduate chapter was the best teacher. To prepare the chapters’ chief elected officers for success, every undergraduate chapter president is invited to attend the Archons Academy. The program is presented at no cost to the archon or his chapter. All expenses of transportation, housing, meals and the educational program are provided by contributions to Psi Upsilon’s Annual Fund. Topics covered:

Stefanos Kasselakis ,

• Goal setting and program planning

Scholarship Winner Broadcasts Success Jonathan Tamayo, Lambda Sigma ’08 received the Gardner A. Callanen, Psi 1929 Scholarship Award for 2007-08. We asked him about his Psi U experiences... How did you decide to join Psi Upsilon? My RA freshman year was a Psi U, and he convinced my entire suite to rush to get free stuff. I ended up really liking the guys, and four of us got a bid. There’s a saying in our chapter that “Psi U is the fraternity for guys that never thought they would join a fraternity.” How did the Psi Upsilon scholarship help you this year? It has helped tremendously to make tuition more affordable. There is a lot of opportunity at Pepperdine to do amazing things that is shaping who I am. My scholarship has made it possible to take advantage of these opportunities without

having to worry about the financial burden they can bring.

What did you do last summer?

(Peppe rdine )

I interned in London last summer. It was one of the best times of my life and the internship I had there was life changing. I worked at one of the top radio stations in London that broadcasts all over the UK. I was able to do reporting in a big city and got to interview the mayor of London, government officials, detectives, British celebrities, artists and world explorers. I even got to cover Prince Charles. I followed him around all day as he toured an environmental facility that helps kids on the street get jobs. Tell us about “Man Waves” “Man Waves” is a show that started as a joke between a friend and me. We were sitting in class one day talking to one of the producers of a show called “Strong Currents” which is a female talk how that’s similar to “The View.” We told her it would be a good idea to do a segment about a guy’s response. She liked the idea and “Man Waves” was born. After the end of the semester, we decided to make our own show, and have grown from a small segment on a female talk show to our own distinctive man-oriented show with a live studio audience. In one of our early episodes this year, we were short on crew members, so I made one phone call and six pledges and two actives showed up to help. Psi U is the biggest part of our audience members at live tapings. I get a tremendous amount of support and a lot of ideas from our chapter. Are your broadcasts available on the Internet? Some of our episodes are available on Facebook, and we’re working on getting them on YouTube.

Ben ChAN Recieves Award Ben Chan, Epsilon ’98, (Berkeley), has been awarded the 2008 UK Aerospace & Defense Librarians Group Award, which will be presented at the Special Libraries Association conference in Seattle later this year. Chan is also featured on a British website called “Visible Chinese: A Guide to Achievers in the UK’s Chinese Culture” for his success with Top Hat Band, which was listed among the best wedding bands in the UK by Bride magazine, and for his work with Bigyellowband.

Habitat for Humanity was an important part of the chapter’s programming this year. Members attended multiple workdays to help build a home for a local family with other members of the Union College campus.

GAMMA, Amherst College (1841) The chapter initiated 14 new brothers and produced a large turnout for two Habitat for Humanity projects. Jarrad Littleton ’10 was accepted into the London School of Economics’ full-year study abroad program. Mark Rapisarda ’08 received first team AllNESCAC honors in men’s squash.

Tsongas Award for Most Improved. Joe Braunruether ’08 shared in the Paul Tsongas award, received the John Glover Award for Most Inspirational and was an academic allIvy. Andrew Berry ’08 served as the captain of the swim team, was 2nd team all-Ivy, the Ron Keenhold Diver of the Year and an NCAA academic all-American. Ben Samson ’08 received the Yachtsman Award from the sailing team for outstanding contribution to the sport.

PSI, Hamilton College (1843) The entire chapter participated in the national heart run/walk in Utica, NY, this year and raised nearly $650. The chapter also hosted a “Little League Day” in Clinton where it did some groundskeeping on the area fields to be sure they are safe for children. The chapter also helped out Hamilton College by providing concessions for the national rugby championships held on campus in April.

ZETA, Dartmouth College (1842)

Littleton and Webster Gamma brothers William Littleton ‘10 and William Webster ‘45 certainly made the most of their summer together. When Brother Littleton accepted an internship with fellow Gamma William Webster’s law firm, the Psi U connection led to a great friendship.

During the spring, the chapter focused on both increasing participation in community service projects as well as improving the physical structure of the house.
