2012 UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, CROOKSTON FOOTBALL A Brief History of UMC 1851 The Minnesota Territorial Laws of 1851 establish the University of Minnesota at what is now the Minneapolis campus and vest its government in a Board of Regents. This statute is approved on February 25, 1851.

1858 On May 11, 1858, Minnesota becomes the thirty-second state admitted to the Union of the United States of America. 1879 The city of Crookston is incorporated. The city is named in honor of Colonel William Crooks, a soldier and railroad builder. 1895 The Minnesota legislature appropriates $30,000 to procure equipment and to construct two experimental research farms, one at Morris and one at Crookston. The Great Northern Railway, under the guidance of James J. Hill , donates 476.61 acres. The Northwest Experiment Station is established.

1905 The Minnesota legislature appropriates $15,000 to establish the Northwest School of Agriculture (NWSA), a regional residential high school with a focus on agriculture.

1906 The

NWSA opens its doors to students in the fall of 1906. Thirty-one students are enrolled that first year. The school provides training in "the technical and practical business of agriculture and in the art of homemaking." The term of schooling begins in October and ends in March to accommodate farm students.

At left, the first building on campus (known simply as the "School Building") was built in 1905-06. The first floor held the school's dining hall, cooks' quarters, and heating plant; the second floor, the assembly room, which was also used as a classroom, a second classroom, and offices; third floor featured nine dormitory rooms and a bathroom. The girls' dormitory was located at the farm house, at right in the photo. The School Building was later named the Home Economics Building. Dowell Hall now stands where the School Building was located. Note: the photo is taken looking west from roughly where Owen Hall currently stands.

1908 Owen Hall is completed. Agricultural laboratories occupy the first floor of the building. Classrooms and labs for business training, farm engineering, and carpentry are located on the second floor.

1909 Eight students comprise the first graduating class of the Northwest School of Agriculture. 1910 Kiehle Building is constructed.

The building houses administrative offices, the library, and, on the second level, a gymnasium.

1932 History is made in 1932 when the first student of the second generation enrolls at the Northwest School of Agriculture.

Dayton Hanson, ’34, of Fertile, Minnesota, is the first of many sons and daughters of alumni to attend. He is the son of Henry Hanson, who attended from 1908 to 1910. Enrollment continues to increase, and the NWSA is dubbed the "School of Service," equipping graduates for careers in agriculture, home economics, home nursing, and business training related to agriculture.

The Campus in 1933

1963 With the changing demands of the region and in the agriculture industry, it becomes apparent to state officials that a college-level technical

educational institution is urgently needed. A study by the University of Minnesota Bureau of Field Studies begins an examination of new roles for the Northwest School of Agriculture. University Regents discuss launching a college-level technical institute.

1965 On May 26, 1965, the Minnesota Legislature approves the creation and education appropriations funding for "the support of an Agricultural and Technical Institute - Crookston" to be located on the campus of the Northwest School of Agriculture in Crookston.

On September 17, 1965, Stanley D. Sahlstrom , Ph.D., is appointed director of the University of Minnesota Technical Institute. He is charged with the development of curricular and administrative affairs for the new collegiate program that will begin classes in the fall of 1966. His title as director and chief executive officer is subsequently changed to provost in 1970. Sahstrom becomes known as the founding provost of the campus.


2012 UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, CROOKSTON FOOTBALL A Brief History of UMC 1966 Classes begin at the University of Minnesota Technical Institute in September 1966.

Associate in Applied Science degrees are offered in three academic divisions: Agriculture, Business, and General Studies. Dedication ceremonies for the new college are held on November 30, 1966. That fall 187 students officially register, learning to adjust to the new college atmosphere and learning from a faculty of 26. Students of the Northwest School of Agriculture and the U of M "Tech" share the campus through the spring of 1968.

1968 On March 22, 1968, the 60th and final commencement exercises for the Northwest School

of Agriculture are held in Kiehle auditorium. Forty-two seniors receive their diplomas from Dr. B. E. Youngquist, superintendent of the Northwest School and Experiment Station. In the photo at right, the "Torch of Education" is passed from NWSA representative David Bohnsack to Ron Tobkin, Technical Institute student, as Director Stanley Sahlstrom (right) looks on. This ceremony marks the passing of educational mission and duties to the new institution. Over its 63-year history, 5,433 graduates completed their high school education at the NWSA.

On Friday, June 7, 1968, commencement ceremonies are held for the first graduating class of the University of Minnesota Technical Institute. Seventy-two “tech” students earn associate’s degrees.

1968 The University of Minnesota Technical Institute is renamed the University of Minnesota Technical College.

1985 Donald G. Sargeant, Ph.D., is appointed provost of the Crookston campus on May 16, 1985.

Sargeant first came to campus in 1970 as an assistant professor and worked his way from faculty to administration.

1995

On November 27, 1995, at the Teambackers Banquet, UMC announces that a new name had been chosen for its athletics teams: the Golden Eagles. The name change is meant to help signify UMC’s change in mission from a two-year college to a four-year university.

2012 UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, CROOKSTON FOOTBALL Ed Widseth Field/Lysaker Gymnasium History Ed Widseth, a Gonvick native who began his football career here in the fall of 1929 at the Northwest School of Agriculture, went on to star for the Minnesota Gophers and was a Co-Captain of the 1936 National Championship Team. Ed was actually a candidate for the Heisman Award and was on Lindy’s All-Century Team for Defensive Line. He was the first player drafted by the New York Giants in 1937, he played five years in the NFL. Ed was the NFL MVP in 1938. A member of the National Collegiate Hall of Fame, Widseth also was selected in 1991 as a charter member of the Gopher’s Men’s Sports Hall of Fame and as one of the 20 greatest Gopher athletes ever. In 1997 UMC and Crookston High School honored Ed by dedicating the football field in his name.

Lysaker Gymnasium, built in 1981, was named for former athletic director, Herschel “Hersch” Lysaker. Lysaker served as UMC’s athletic director from 1966-1976. Hersch received the UMC Torch and Shield Service Award in 1975 for his outstanding contribution to the college community. In 1977 he was inducted into the Minnesota Football Hall of Fame. Lysaker began his work for the campus in 1944, when he joined the staff of the NWSA as athletic director and home projects supervisor. He spent a total of 44 years in education, including his previous service at high schools in Adams, ND, Northwood, ND, Warren, MN, and Crookston.


2012 UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, CROOKSTON FOOTBALL


2012 UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, CROOKSTON FOOTBALL HISTORY of the NSIC From its modest origin as a six-team alliance nearly eight decades ago, the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference has matured into a 16-team union of upper Midwest colleges and universities to form arguably the strongest affiliation in NCAA Division II. The NSIC can trace its roots to 1932 when six schools, including Bemidji State University, Minnesota State University, Mankato, Minnesota State University Moorhead, St. Cloud State University, University of Minnesota Duluth and Winona State University signed on as charter members. All remain active subscribers of the league today. Southwest Minnesota State University was added in 1969, followed by Northern State University in 1978, Wayne State College (NE) in 1998, Concordia University-St. Paul and the University of Minnesota, Crookston in 1999, the University of Mary and Upper Iowa University in 2006, Augustana College in 2008 and Minot State University and the University of Sioux Falls in 2012. Minnesota State, St. Cloud State and Minnesota Duluth later left the league to join the North Central Conference but returned to the NSIC in 2008. University of Minnesota, Morris and Michigan Tech University were once part of the NSIC family as well. In 1992 the NSIC became a true athletic showcase for both men and women with the merger of the traditional Northern Intercollegiate Conference (NIC) and the Northern Sun Conference (NSC), the home of women’s athletics since 1979. Before NSIC affiliates became certified for championship competition in the National Collegiate Athletic Association in 1995, its member institutions filled prominent roles in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). NIC and NSC clubs annually dispatched qualified student-athletes to national tournaments and captured several NAIA teams and individual championships. The NSIC celebrates its 81st season this year and clearly continues to make a major imprint nationally, winning 11 national titles since 2006. Winona State men claimed NCAA II Basketball Championships in 2006 and 2008 and narrowly missed a third crown, falling in a last second shot in 2007. In addition, the Warriors established a NCAA II record of 57 consecutive victories. Concordia University launched an ongoing streak of five consecutive NCAA II Volleyball Championships in 2007. In 2008 the Golden Bears won 37 straight matches after a season opening loss on their way to a second consecutive title and scripted a marvelous encore in 2009 with a perfect 37-0 finish, a third straight national crown and a winning streak of 74 straight matches. In 2010 the Golden Bear extended that win streak to 75 before dropping their second match of the season. They started 2010 with a 10-4 record before ripping off 22 straight wins on their way to their fourth straight national title. In 2011, after overcoming midseason injuries, the Golden Bears hit their stride. The Golden Bears knocked off No. 1 and undefeated Cal State San Bernardino to become the first team in the history of NCAA Division II women’s volleyball, to captured a fifth consecutive NCAA Division II Championship. In a most surprising run, Minnesota Duluth completed a perfect 15-0 season by winning the 2008 NCAA Division II Football Championship. The Bulldogs, limited to only 24 scholarships by league rule, swept a field of fully-funded teams, including top ranked Grand Valley State and number three Northwest Missouri State. Two years later in 2010 the Bulldogs repeated that feat, going 15-0 again to win the national championship. The Bulldogs became the first NCAA DII football squad to win two national championships with undefeated records. Minnesota State added more luster to the league by finishing 32-2 and claiming the 2008-09 NCAA II Women’s Basketball Championship. The Mavericks rolled to a wild 103-94 victory over Franklin Pierce to set a NCAA record for total points in the title game. Augustana College got into the mix of national championships in 2011 when their women’s cross country team turned in a true team performance in Spokane, Wash. All five Viking runners earned All-American status as Augustana won the first cross country national championship in NSIC history. Since 2000, the NSIC has also participated in Mineral Water Bowl. Hosted by the Quarterback Club of Excelsior Springs, Mo., the Mineral Water Bowl matches the highest-finishing teams from the NSIC and the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) not selected for the NCAA Division II football playoffs. In 2000, Winona State defeated Missouri Western State, 43-41, in triple overtime, for the Warriors first-ever NCAA II post-season win. The NSIC has also had five athletes awarded with the NCAA Elite 89 Award, which is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA’s 89 championships. Earning the award were Ben Keller (Minnesota State, Baseball 2012), Cody Lensing (Augustana, Wrestling 2012), Kendra Huettl (Minnesota State, Softball, 2011), Matt Braithwaite (Augustana, Cross Country, 2010) and Lauren Brown (Winona State, Outdoor Track & Field, 2010).

Member schools continue to emphasize the educational, entertainment and unifying value of sports while pointing with pride to the many advantages to be gained by attending these colleges and universities. The NSIC is committed to providing rewarding experiences for its student-athletes, and while the challenges that loom are sizable, indeed, the NSIC is surely well positioned for the future.
