Southwest Concourse Reimagined


HE MAKEOVER OF the Southwest Residential Area Concourse, in the works since 2009, is now complete. The project was designed by Stephen Stimson ’83. The renovations transformed the concourse from a stark concrete and asphalt space into a more sustainable, pleasant, and usable place by replacing pavement with native trees, shrubs, grasses, and perennials, and breaking down large open spaces into intimate gathering spots.

Inbox Peace Goes On “We Come in Peace” (Summer 2011) brings back so many memories of the early days of the Peace Corps. I remember how all the UMass students who attended our Amherst church dreamed of joining the corps. Several did, and one was my brother Brian Richardson ’64. My mother wept when he turned down a job offer with General Electric after he got his degree as an engineer, joined the Peace Corps, and headed for Liberia. Brian felt an instant rapport with the people of that country, and he and his wife, Marsha ’70, have stayed engaged with and connected to Liberia ever since. During the long civil war, Brian helped obtain the release of several Liberians from prison and thus saved them from their sentence of execution; he also helped to get out of the country children who would otherwise have been murdered by soldiers. Lately he and Marsha have made it possible for a young village girl with crippling deformities to come to the United States for surgery and therapy. And oh yes—my mother recovered from her grief and was very proud of her son. So now you know the rest of the story! Janice Richardson Winokur Grantham, N.H.

In 1968 and 1969 the Peace Corps was experimenting with filling specific, identified jobs with professionally trained volunteers. UMass was contracted to recruit wildlife majors to fill jobs in Africa. We recruited and trained 19 students who were placed in Kenya, Botswana, Malawi, Swaziland, and Ethiopia. We were told that we were one of the three most successful contracts in the U.S. that year. John Foster, Professor Emeritus, Resource Economics Northampton, Mass.

In what was certainly not a popular selection for a Umie undergrad back in 1961, I chose to take a break from studies to attend a Peace Corps training program at Rutgers University. Since I had not yet acquired any degree I assumed I would take advantage of the invitation to train alongside young

men from across the country, and return to Amherst. In September 1961, I did not return to UMass Amherst but instead met with John Fitzgerald Kennedy in the White House. He asked me what was going on in Boston. My answer: “Your brother-in-law has kept us so busy in training this summer that I suspect you have been to Boston more than I have.” “Good answer,” he shot back as he shook my hand. The next day I boarded a flight for Bogota, Colombia. I was the first resident of Massachusetts to serve in the Peace Corps. After 21 months of service there I was hired to teach Peace Corps volunteers at the University of New Mexico-Taos. It is likely that Joan McKniff, who was featured in your article, was one of my trainees. After serving as field training officer for Latin America I was welcomed back to the Amherst campus to complete my degrees. Bradford H. Whipple ’66, ’66G, ’70G Sugar Hill, N.H.

No Butts About It “Don’t Smoke Here” (Summer 2011): Wonderful! I hope all enthusiastically agree to ban tobacco use at UMass Amherst and join hands in all campus nooks and crannies to ensure success. I hope, too, that all on the staff will agree and comply, because without that, we shall have a tearful failure. Rolfe Chase ’58 Prescott, Ariz.

Cushy Campus? I had to smile cynically as I read the Summer 2011 edition. A restaurant called Bento Box in the Campus Center? I know the parents of these students are paying fine money for their children to go to UMass, which is a great institution of learning that has to compete with other schools for students, but I do think campus has become a bit too cozy. Call me bitter, but from 1991 to 1995 we were lucky if our cavatelli supreme was still warm or if we would be allowed to get more than three chicken tenders for dinner. My point is not to be a sardonic old

alumna, really. In order to compete with other posh schools, UMass does have to change and court our everspoiled children and their doting hover-parents with more “options.” I just hope that by the time their graduation comes, they realize their first job may not come with all the trappings of their comfy college life, unless they work for Google. Kathy Cail ’95 Louisville, Ky.

Fear Not Thank you for the excellent piece about the Masha Kabakow Rudman Issues in Children’s Literature Collection at UMass Amherst Libraries (Spring 2011). By way of correction, it wasn’t my publisher, it was Ethel Hines, editor-in-chief of the prestigious journal The Horn Book, who feared that I would destroy children’s literature. My publishers were enormously supportive. Masha Rudman ’70EdD Professor Emerita, School of Education Amherst, Mass.

Lone Star Protest I always enjoy reading the alumni magazine, but I have to say I was disappointed by the liberal bias inserted into two stories in the Summer 2011 issue. First, in “Keep On Moving On” it is distressing that Clinton Bench and Jon Dietrich believe that government needs to decide what modes of transportation are best for the populace. The idea of putting the environment ahead of the marketplace, not to mention individual citizen choice, is very disturbing. Second, I had to laugh when I read in “Pizza on the Ramparts” that Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin was part of an “assault on [state workers’] collective bargaining rights.” Most private industry employees believe that the benefits of the state workers are an assault on their wallets, not to mention they crowd out state services that have to be sacrificed because of poorly negotiated agreements that require low employee contributions fall 2011


Inbox for rich benefits. Their pay and union dues funnel right back to what was a previously sympathetic Democratic majority in the form of campaign contributions. With benefits like that, who would want to work in private business! There were ways to write these stories that would have been balanced, informative, and provided a nonpolitical perspective. I didn’t realize that the magazine had become a breeding ground for liberal thought. In closing . . . God bless Texas!! Chris Zamzow ’01 Frisco, Texas

Rag On Us “Run Ragged” (Summer 2011) about common ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia) shows a picture of goldenrod (Solidago spp.). These two species bloom at the same time, but goldenrod is pollinated by insects. Your article perpetuates the myth that goldenrods cause hay fever. Nick Rowse ’77 Burnsville, Minn.

Ragweed, really.


umass amherst

Dr. Ray E. Torrey (class of 1912), botany professor at UMass 60-plus years ago, would suggest the picture provided is goldenrod rather than ragweed. Goldenrod is not known to cause allergic reactions, unless new research results have been published. Anthony Kotula ’51, ‘54G Storrs Mansfield, Conn.

Having spent my life as a naturalist and science educator, one of the most frequent misconceptions I ran into was people blaming goldenrod (which has insect pollinators) for their hay fever and allergies, when it was ragweed (which has airborne pollen) that caused them so much grief. And to find my old college perpetuating the myth . . . well, it was just too much for me to take. If you should need a retired naturalist to proofread future editions, please let me know! Doug Kimball ’73S, ’78 Warner Robins, Georgia

came up to me, noted that I had done my undergraduate work at UMass, and asked, “Are you a Marxist?”Alas, I was not, but I do look forward to reading Professor Katzner’s book. Robert P. Hartwig ’86 President and Economist Insurance Information Institute New York, N.Y.

Golf-Cart Momma “Keep On Moving On” (Summer 2011): Come to visit my home in Florida. It is totally golf-cart accessible, with tunnels as well as separate lanes. One does not need an automobile. I wish there were more communities such as ours. My son, Wesley Schwalje ’00, is currently working on his PhD at the London School of Economics.

Tie-Dyed Marxists

Whither The Women?

I read with fond memories about Professor Donald Katzner and his new book about managing the only economics department in the United States with a Marxian tilt (“Bookmarks,” Summer 2011). Professor Katzner was my instructor for intermediate microeconomics in the early 1980s. I really enjoyed his challenging course and still have my vintage textbook, heavily annotated in the margins. At the time, I knew that the UMass economics department was somehow different but couldn’t quite put my finger on it, though the teaching assistants at that time did seem to have a preference for tie-dyed T-shirts! Upon graduating from UMass with a BA in economics in 1986 (and never having taken a class in Marxian economics), I enrolled in the PhD program at the University of Illinois—then populated by a number of Chicago-school economists, the antithesis of the UMass faculty. It didn’t take long for my undergraduate degree to attract attention. At a reception for new graduate students early in the semester, a faculty member at Illinois

I was both disappointed and outraged when I read of the 2011 Distinguished Alumni Awards (Summer 2011). Of the seven recipients, there was not a single woman among them. I had to turn to the front cover and make sure that I had not accidentally received an issue from 1935 by mistake. While I in no way mean to imply that the seven men you chose to honor with this award have not done some truly distinguished things that deserve recognition, I find it extraordinarily hard to believe that there was not a single alumna from our fine school who has managed to accomplish things equally worthy of praise and recognition. I am ashamed of my alma mater for failing to even consider, apparently, the achievements and accomplishments of nearly half the graduates of this institution as worthy of the title “distinguished.” Given the remarkable strides made by women, especially in the realm of higher education, over the past 20 years it is shocking and frustrating to see the antiquated, blatant disregard and sexism that the alumni magazine still, even if only tacitly, endorses and

Inbox perpetuates. Women have been accomplishing great things in the world for centuries, despite overwhelming social stigma and restriction. Many people have struggled greatly to work towards a level playing field for all women in recent decades, and it pains me to see that the UMass Alumni Association is so far and so flagrantly behind the times. Jennifer Rockwell Edwards ’04 Minneapolis, Minn.

Reading the summer issue I was immediately transported back to my years at UMass when women were culturally second-class citizens. Of the seven alumni named as distinguished in 2011, there is not one woman! Please explain that to me. I thought times had changed? What’s up, boys? Mary Beth Splaine ’55 Nantucket, Mass.

Deborah Goodhind, Interim Executive Director, UMass Amherst Alumni Association, responds: The Distinguished Alumni Awards are the most prestigious awards conferred by the Alumni Association upon alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the university. As such, we take the nomination, review, and selection process for these awards very seriously. Ownership of the nomination process is granted to our alumni, faculty, and staff to allow our award recipients to be acknowledged by their peers for their outstanding accomplishments. The review and selection process is overseen by a volunteer alumni committee, composed this past year of three females and four males, and is solely dependent upon the nomination pool. While we support an open nomination process and greatly value the work done by our volunteer committee, we are also committed to continuously improving our programs and services in order to best represent our diverse alumni population. As we work toward this end, we strongly encourage all alumni to be a part of the Distinguished Alumni Awards process and to submit nominations for alumni and alumnae who deserve to be represented and acknowledged for their work.

First Year Intelligence


NIVERSITIES AROUND THE country have dropped the word “freshman” in favor of the more all-encompassing term “first-year student.” Whatever you call them, UMass Amherst now offers its newbies more support in their first year on campus. This year’s fall orientation was part of a major new initiative, called First Year Intelligence (FYI), which will help students find their way academically and socially.

Students ventured into Amherst center as part of the new three-day fall orientation for first-year Umies.

Chancellor Looks Ahead


T THE 2011 faculty convocation, Chancellor Robert C. Holub likened entering his fourth and final year as the leader of UMass Amherst to a student entering his senior year. The chancellor reflected on campus accomplishments during the past three years and pledged to continue to assist the campus in moving forward. Holub has announced that he will step down at the end of this academic year. “I am happy to say that with the help of the faculty, staff, and students at UMass I have enjoyed immensely and have profited tremendously from my educational experience,” he said. “We will continue to fulfill the role of a great land-grant institution, not only because it is our heritage, but also because it embodies the values of educational access and public service that are so important to all of us.” Holub said that although the nation’s public research institutions are entering a difficult period, these institutions are resilient. “Now

more than ever they hold the key to economic recovery and prosperity for the states in which they are located and for the nation as a whole,” he noted. Holub concluded, “UMass Amherst is truly on the rise, and I detect a new pride among faculty and staff, and among students coming to the campus. The campus community has begun to recognize that we are indeed a great institution, and that we are poised for even greater accomplishments as we ascend into the ranks of the top public research institutions in the country.” In September, UMass President Robert L. Caret and the UMass Board of Trustees established an 18-person search committee to conduct a national search for a new chancellor. Philip W. Johnston ’68, former Massachusetts Secretary of Health and Human Services, will chair the committee.

New Dean for Nursing School TEPHEN J. CAVANAGH, formerly professor and associate dean for academic and clinical affairs in the College of Nursing at Wayne State University in Detroit, became the new dean of the School of Nursing in September. He replaces Dean Jean E. Swinney, who will return to her teaching and research duties. Cavanagh takes over leadership of the school as both faculty and enrollment have increased. He will lead the school from Skinner Hall, the 1940s-era building that reopened in 2009 following a $20 million renovation and expansion project. His research focuses on stroke outcomes in an urban environment. He received his PhD in nursing from the University of Texas at Austin in 1987.

Buried Knowledge


ALKING THROUGH THE woods on campus behind the Marks Meadow School last summer, a passerby spotted a tarp beside a mound of earth. He lifted the tarp to discover bones at the bottom of an open grave and called police, who sent a couple of squad cars. “That’s why we had to have a fence for our class this year,” says Assistant Professor Ventura Pérez ’00G, ’06PhD, the creator of the anthropology field school that was using the remote site to learn how to excavate human remains. “They trampled the crime scene and took our plastic skeleton.” Students who participate in the course, “Field and Laboratory Methods in Bioarchaeology and Forensic Anthropology,” act as biological anthropologists, archaeologists, and forensic scientists as they excavate both a staged crime scene and a pseudoarcheological burial site on campus.

DISCOVERY BY a team of UMass Amherst physicists and microbiologists shows promise of revolutionizing nanotechnology and bioelectronics. It turns out that a fundamental, previously unknown property of microbial nanowires in the bacterium Geobacter sulfurreducens allows electron transport across long distances and might lead to cheaper, nontoxic nanomaterials for use in biosensors and solid state electronics that interface with biological systems. Lead microbiologist Derek Lovley, along with physicists Mark Tuominen and Nikhil Malvankar and their colleagues, have found that networks of bacterial filaments—called “microbial nanowires” because they conduct electrons along their length—move charges as efficiently as synthetic organic

metallic nanostructures and can do so over thousands of times the bacterium’s length. Networks of microbial nanowires coursing through biofilms (made up of cohesive aggregates of billions of cells) give this biological material a conductivity comparable to that found in the synthetic conducting polymers commonly used in the electronics industry. “The discovery of the ability of protein filaments to conduct electrons this way marks a paradigm shift in biology,” Lovley says. “It has ramifications for our understanding of natural microbial processes and practical implications for environmental cleanup and the development of renewable energy sources.”

Osborne Honored


ROFESSOR OF VETERINARY and Animal Sciences Barbara Osborne, a renowned immunologist who has been on campus since 1985, has become a leader in interdisciplinary sciences. For her


umass amherst

exceptional work, she was recently recognized as the latest UMass Amherst Spotlight Scholar. In the 1990s Osborne earned international attention as a researcher of apoptosis, or programmed cell death. “We were interested in how a particular protein killed cells,” she says. “Along the way we discovered that another protein, Notch, acted as an anti-apoptotic protein in T cells.” Notch is a signaling protein that spans both sides of the cell membrane and determines whether a T cell will become a Th1 (short for “T-helper 1”) cell, useful in mounting immunesystem responses to viruses, bacterial infections, and other pathogens. In 1999 Osborne co-founded Hematech, a company that has pioneered the use of cloned animals for the development and production of antibodies for therapeutic uses. Now she’s collaborating with Greg Tew and Maria Santore of Polymer Science and Engineering to open the groundbreaking Center for Soft Materials Immunology to develop biologically compatible synthetic materials that allow the body’s own cellular mechanisms and pathways to control the immune system in order to fight disease.

LDER WOMEN WHO consume larger quantities of vitamin D, the “sunshine vitamin,” than their peers are less likely to experience depression. So finds a large study conducted by Elizabeth Bertone-Johnson of UMass Amherst’s School of Public Health and Health Sciences and colleagues from other U.S. academic centers. The study revealed that a diverse population of postmenopausal women who consumed 800 international units (IU) per day of the vitamin was overall 20 percent less likely to have depressive symptoms than those who consumed less

When Yellow is Mellow


TEAM OF chemists led by UMass Amherst’s Vincent M. Rotello has developed a fast, simple, low-cost field test for detecting low concentrations of bacteria in drinking water. The technique uses a biosensor made of gold nanoparticles, an enzyme and dye that can detect harmful bacteria in concentrations as low as 100 cells per milliliter. That’s good news for developing countries where public health workers, physicians, and water-quality specialists are in desperate need of a quick, sensitive means of detecting pathogens in water supplies. The traditional method, in which samples are cultured and sent out for lab analyses, is slow and costly enough to hamper the effort to fight bacteria-related disease, which is estimated to affect 300 million people and kill more than 2 million children each year. Rotello’s team, which included partners at the University of Puerto Rico and Georgia Institute of Technology, developed a test strip with a simple visual read-out. It uses enzymenanoparticle assemblies absorbed on paper strips. When the paper comes in contact with bacteria, the enzyme is activated and within 10 minutes the strip turns from yellow to red.

Among women who had no depression at baseline, those who took in 400 IU or more of vitamin D per day from food sources also had a 20 percent lower risk of depressive symptoms three years later compared to those in the group taking in the least vitamin D. These and other findings need to be confirmed in clinical trials but are provocative. “Dietary vitamin D intake and supplement use are easy for women to modify,” BertoneJohnson points out. “If clinical trials confirm our findings it might lead to m new avenues for n preventing and perhaps even treating depression.” treatin

HILE ADULTS READILY form abstract concepts of objects, animals, places and people, research psychologists have long debated whether pre-verbal infants can do likewise. A recent study by UMass Amherst psychologist Lisa Scott suggests that they can indeed— that long before infants can speak, their developing brains and understanding of the world are influenced by the words parents use to name objects. Some researchers have argued that iinfants nf under a year of age are extremely limited in their ability to use u se the labels parents provide for objects in order to help infants fform or concepts. Scott’s experiment, however, suggests that six- to nine-month-old infants do in fact use labels they hear to form n in of objects. Scott believes that these early concepts form the cconcepts on basis b a for later learning. “My name is OLIVER.” “Our results,” she says, “suggest that parents’ differential labeling of objects leads infants to form very different concepts and have very different brain responses than when parents label all like objects with the same name. For example, learning that dogs are individuals named ‘Oliver’ or ‘Suzie’ leads to a different understanding of dogs than if all dogs are labeled ‘dog.’ Learning to discern individuals is sometimes more advantageous than learning categories of things.” “My name is SUZIE.” fall 2011

History is Everywhere By Helen Wise

Meet the people who help us find it.

F YOU WANT to pursue your love of history but teaching in a classroom’s not for you—or you don’t relish spending months on end alone in archives with solitary writing to follow—what’s the solution? Answer: look to public history for exciting ways to share your passion.

Associate Professor Marla Miller, director of UMass Amherst’s 25-year-old Public History program, confirms the wisdom of that choice. “We’re now reaching a thriving time, an acceleration. We’re expanding exponentially in every direction!” she says. So not surprisingly there’s no one neat definition of this fascinating field and what public historians do. Founding director Professor David Glassberg, who began his professional life working for the National Park Service, comes up with a quick one. History is becoming more inclusive, he explains, spreading out from obvious sites linked to famous people and events to include things overlooked, or less noted, and voices hitherto unheard. Also, public history is not a matter of bringing history down to the public, he continues. Rather, it’s a process of listening and dialog, and using professional skills to help communities tease out their own histories—often from unexpected places and sometimes in ways that challenge established historical thinking.


umass amherst

Public history is a burgeoning field with satisfying career prospects that has developed enormously since the History Department first began planning over 30 years ago for an ‘applied history’ program to better prepare graduates to work in museums, archives, and government agencies. Yet over the same period, public attendance at small, traditional museums and historic sites has dwindled as visitors seem to have lost interest in worlds apart—of artifacts-under-glass and ropedoff spaces. And various surveys, including the latest National Report Card, continue to reveal that most schoolchildren have a hazy sense of history—and they tend to forget the little they know as they grow older. On the other hand, websites like are thriving as people discover the addictive pleasures of researching family history and activities that involve learning about history are proving popular. Clearly, new connections to the past are being made today. On campus, the two-year Master’s in Public History

program has indeed been preparing students for the careers envisioned, with the more recent addition of a “Writing History” component for those who aim to reach broad audiences. But what most excites Glassberg and Miller is the cutting-edge quality of today’s program. “Our graduates have to be good historians, with all the necessary skills—plus people skills,” explains Glassberg. “And those are tact, diplomacy, and patience, both to work with the public and collaboratively with colleagues,” adds Miller. This means taking both graduate-level history courses and training courses relevant to individual interests. Glassberg sees it, especially in the museum course, as rather like medical students doing clinical rounds. So recent graduates and current students are going into the field of public history taking as their bywords the contemporary imperative of community engagement. Trained to look for history everywhere, they grapple with the big questions— what’s the role of history? how do we ‘preserve’ it? what’s authentic? how do we involve people? It’s time to meet some public historians.


An exhibit featuring a famous native son—the work of three Public History interns—is on display in the lobby of Great Barrington’s Triplex Cinema, where patrons can easily view it on their way to take in a movie.

ECOMING A SON of Great Barrington: W.E.B. Du Bois” is an exhibit that opened this spring in a corner of the lobby of the town’s Triplex Cinema. Emily Oswald, Erik Ingmundson, and Jess Monti, students in Professor Glassberg’s Museum and Historic Site Interpretation course, had the task of telling the story of Du Bois in his Massachusetts hometown, a little about his legacy, and also something of the resistance in the 1970s from residents who didn’t want him commemorated. Oswald reports that the team’s research resulted in a succinct commentary carried on a four-sided kiosk, a four-panel timeline, and several additional panels designed to capture the interest of intentional and casual visitors, who can view the highly accessible exhibit for free. With help from the Du Bois Library, the team selected newly digitized photographs and manuscripts from the university’s Du Bois Collection. These high-resolution images helped make for a “really sharp-looking product costing well under three thousand dollars,” Oswald notes, stressing that field work is a critical component of the Public History program. “It’s a great experience locating supplies, working with a designer and printer—you can’t learn that in the classroom,” she adds. The display will remain at the theater indefinitely as part of a long-term effort to boost visitation and activities at the nearby Du Bois homesite, owned by the university. While visiting the exhibit this summer, University of South Carolina history professor Patricia Sullivan, an authority on Du Bois, found herself taking notes right away. It’s a brilliant achievement, she says, showing how vital it is to experience this towering figure on his home turf. fall 2011



OCTORAL CANDIDATE Christopher Benning was one of a team of students to work on a three-year study of nearby Hadley’s barns as part of an effort to document and preserve the local rural landscape for the town’s 350th celebrations in 2009. First, the team inventoried over 100 barns—“wonderful examples of vernacular architecture with form reflecting function,” he says. Then they conducted a more focused study of characteristic types. The project culminated in an interactive website that includes images imposed on maps with captions designed to be especially useful to professional practitioners and cultural tourists. In this local cultural landscape, the historic mansions are well documented, Benning notes, but many of the structures that helped provide the wealth to build them are in danger of erasure. Yet they’re primary historical sources, just like a rutted road, he explains. Tax assessors’ records provided the students


ATHY STANTON, AUTHOR of The Lowell Experiment: Public History in a Post-Industrial City (UMass Press, 2006), has so far worked on three projects for the National Park Service. The latest is an ethnohistorical study of farming in Columbia County, N.Y., for the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site, which recently incorporated the eighth president’s independently owned 225-acre farm. Each time, she has gone to the Public History program, where she’s an adjunct research associate, for academically well-prepared interns, to help with documenting, archival research, and other support activities. As they assist her and she mentors them, they learn more about a new paradigm for public history that involves dealing with the present. Stanton explains that the traditional model embodied an “almost romantic notion of rescuing things from the wreck of time— things left behind—to keep them from being forgotten—but all framed as gone.” Stanton is urging uneasy Park Service officials to accept the big modern tractors crawling around what is now a contemporary, biodynamic, Community Supported Agriculture operation. The farm staff and volunteers use lots of methods from Van Buren’s day, she notes, but for a smaller-scale agricultural concern to be economically viable, they have to employ some modern techniques in a “big holistic system.” These are interesting times, she says, pitting genetically modified crops, imported foods, and large-scale agribusiness against “relocalizers” concerned with sustainability. She urges: “Let’s have public history get out ahead and connect with projects that are using the past in a much more radical way.”

ATE PREISSLER ’10G has a “wonderful job” with an apt title—engagement manager for the Trustees of Reservations, a statewide land conservation and historic preservation organization. She works with their 40 or so sites in western Massachusetts, including five historic houses. Her duties involve any point of contact with the public— on site, with volunteers, exhibits, and signage, prompting her to ask: “What is it about each place that people connect with?” Two years ago, the organization was shifting emphasis from historic homes to cultural landscapes just as she was graduating with training in that area. This year, she’s been working with three Public History interns—Elizabeth Bradley, Jessie MacLeod, and John Morton—on a major project at the 1735 Ashley House, a Trustees’ property near their better-known site, Bartholomew’s Cobble in Sheffield. This oldest recorded house in Berkshire County is now being presented, not so much for its domestic architecture and period contents, but as the shell for the local story of an eloquent advocate of Revolutionary sentiments of freedom and

equality, and his slave who paid close attention—a story that deserves to go national, Preissler explains. To compensate for limited opening hours at the house, the interns turned a 1940s garage into an interpretive site that can be left open and unattended. With the help of 40 enthusiastic volunteers converting and refurbishing the structure—an achievement in itself, she notes—they designed space, created content, and scoped out images for a series of panels covering themes of slavery, freedom, and legacy in the life of Elizabeth Freeman, an herbalist and midwife known affectionately in town as Mum Bett. The UMass Amherst interns have been “spot-on,” she says. “They’ve studied the period and are very knowledgeable and interested.” That background served them well, Preissler adds, as they wrestled to find appropriate language for the commentary that describes the atypical life of a slave who won her freedom in court, gained respect in her community, and eventually owned property.

As co-author of an iPod-guided interpretive walking tour of Chestertown’s 18th-century waterfront district, she says she drew on her UMass coursework on museum and historic site interpretation. Writing and producing the tour was a challenge and a major exercise in collaboration—with students, scholars, and community members. “I used everything I ever learned about how information is processed aurally, how visitors navigate a tour program, and how long an exhibit text will hold people’s attention,” she says. The “scariest thing” Titus says she has ever had to do professionally occurred soon after her arrival in Chestertown. She picked up the phone to cold-call people to invite them to talk about “one of the most taboo subjects in American history”: the legacy of lynching. Using all she’d learned in graduate school about race, civic engagement, and community involvement, she found the vast majority of people—both black and white—very supportive of the project. The exercise began with a few inevitably awkward exchanges but the initial conversations built trust, she says. Also, she and her colleagues went into the community for help in planning a public conversation, partnering with various individuals and organizations. “The program, ultimately, was a great success and an unforgettable experience—everything I’d ever learned, read, and envisioned about public history realized,” she concludes.

EGHAN GELARDI HOLMES ’06G is applying her public history skills to “Project Civility” at Rutgers University, where she works on the New Brunswick campus. This ambitious initiative aims to engage the university community in a conversation about civility in public discourse, civil behavior, and civility across cultures, including the use of technology and especially social media—and has even extended into local schools. Recently, she and Professor Miller were participants in a panel on civil dialog in public history practice at a national conference. Here, they demonstrated how their work in broad community engagement can provide a template to engage individuals from diverse backgrounds in discussing today’s contentious issues. In April, Holmes began blogging about public history under an initial year-long contract with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities. Posting about twice a month, she reports on her visits to sites with intriguing projects and reflects on what makes for successful exhibits and activities.

EVEALING THE PAST. Challenging the Future.” That’s the motto of the 20-year-old Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York City, where David Favaloro ’03G has worked almost since graduation. Starting as a research assistant, he’s now director of curatorial affairs, working collaboratively across departments to do research and exhibit work, plus care and conservation of the building. Some of the tenement’s interior spaces have been left in their final crumbling condition—unrestored but stabilized. Favaloro says that as a historian, he’d seen photographs and read descriptions of tenement life “but you don’t get the palpable, visceral experience until you stand in the space itself. It’s poetic—in a way, evocative, and very powerful.” “We don’t collect in the way most museums do,” he adds. “Instead, we use period items to tell the stories of the poor, working-class immigrants of the Lower East Side between 1863, when the building opened, and 1935, when it was condemned.” He explains that the staff collect stories through physical investigations—even getting experts to analyze the paintwork for what it can tell about the lives of the inhabitants—in effect, the archeology of the building. The museum works to engage visitors not just with the building, but also with the neighborhood and how the latter changed when the tenement closed. Favaloro says he helps tell the stories of families—most recently in neighborhood walking tours—focusing on the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These sold-out activities, he adds, engage visitors in discussion of that period and also of what it means to be an immigrant nowadays. This dialog reminds Favaloro of his reflections on big ideas while he was a student at UMass Amherst. “History,” he says,

is the conversation the present has with the past—and that informs all the work we do here.”


ILLER AND GLASSBERG are greatly heartened to see students find absorbing internships and go from one to another. For example, Jessie MacLeod went on from the Ashley House to spend the summer working on slavery topics at the Newport (R.I.) Historical Society. Meanwhile, her teammate John Morton oversaw a summer youth program on hometown landscapes at the William Cullen Bryant Homestead in Cummington. Graduating with such experience under their belts, it’s not surprising that former students land jobs that draw so fittingly on their training in the Public History program. Increasing numbers also go on to pursue related doctoral studies. In September, the program hosted a two-day conference on campus to envision the next 25 years in the public history field. Nationally known experts paired for conversation with Five College counterparts, noting that some trends, as Miller stresses, have been developing for a while. Others perceived a generational shift, with younger scholars starting to build on the work of the field’s founders. Whatever the contemporary currents, public historians agree that studying the past has value in itself but also more than that. Jill Ogline Titus can speak for her peers as she says: “When we understand the past as a living presence in our own time—a force subtly yet profoundly shaping the present—we are better equipped to engage responsibly with the world around us.”

“History is the conversation the present has

Knowing that the initial image bank he would need was all but in hand, Martin submitted a grant application to the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation. Intrigued, the foundation asked for a fuller description, including an explanation of how he meant to develop the necessary interactive technology. Martin put out queries to his colleagues in computer science and eventually heard from Emeritus Professor Allen Hanson, who made essential technical recommendations. Hanson also endorsed the talents of PhD candidate Adam Williams ’09G, who went on to do the lion’s share of the work of making the installation interactive. Martin soon found himself the recipient of a $45,000 special grant from the Dreyfus Foundation, along with funding for installation from the campus’s College of Natural Sciences and its supporters and alumni. By September 2009 the Molecular Playground was up and running. It neatly exemplifies the goals of the Integrated Sciences Building, or ISB, which houses all of the campus’s teaching laboratories in chemistry as well as upperlevel teaching labs in the biosciences, a 300-seat auditorium, an 85-seat classroom, and a Technology Resource Center

with two flanking 48-seat classrooms. It’s a handsome structure and, as Martin notes, “UMass is rightly proud of it. The ISB was conceived as a way of blurring boundaries between disciplines, in particular chemistry and biology. I’m trained as a chemist but I look at biochemical molecules. To me, the two are not different disciplines, they’re artificial constructs. What we really want to understand is nature, and nature doesn’t impose labels—‘This is biology, this is chemistry.’ We humans put those labels on. The ISB is part of our effort to produce chemists and biochemists who can talk to each other, and the Molecular Playground plays into that by giving each camp the chance to appreciate the beauty of the other’s domain.” Martin, however, takes such talk of esthetics only so far. “Molecules are beautiful,” he says, “and we want to show their

I don’t want them to walk by and say, ‘Oh, that’s science,’ and walk on; I want them to say, ‘That’s cool,’ and then become curious about the science behind it.” But, he quickly adds, that’s all for the benefit of the layperson, not the scientist: “I don’t consider myself an artist. Scientists are only interested in molecules for what they do. Esthetics, for them, are secondary; it’s all about a given molecule’s impact on society and potential to benefit society.” Any molecule can be represented in any number of ways, from the ball-and-stick approach we all remember from high

“The whole point of the Molecular Playground,” he says, “is to get science out before the public. I’d love to see them set up in shopping malls and that sort of thing. What better way to reach people who otherwise might never get a glimpse of this whole exciting part of the world we live in?”

Martin says he wants to “attract laypersons the way art attracts them. I don’t want them to walk by and say, ‘Oh, that’s science,’ and walk on; I want them to say, ‘That’s cool,’ and then become curious about the science behind it.” school (and which occasionally springs up, pulsing and flexing, in the Molecular Playground) to extravagant wonders that look like they’re fresh from the Pixar studios. “All of these approaches,” Martin concedes, “are perfectly valid. But we choose among the options based on which best communicates whatever we’re trying to show.”


HE PUBLIC HAS taken to the Molecular Playground with everything from quiet fascination to pure playfulness. One boy was caught on video tossing up his gloves to see how they’d jog the images. Martin is comfortable with that: “If it gets him excited,” he says, “that’s great.” And the joy is spreading. As of this writing, UMass Amherst is helping to set up a playground down the road at the Springfield Science Museum. St. Olaf College in Minnesota and a structural biology institute in Okinawa, Japan, are building their own installations, and Martin would like to see others set up at less orthodox sites.

COMPONENT: the bottom crust, filling, and upper crust, and perfection must be reached in aesthetics and taste. Crust After experiments using all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour and different combinations of fat for the crust, the students opted for all-purpose flour and lard and butter. The butter provides a good flavor and lard increases the flakiness of the crust.

Filling Students tested a variety of non-traditional filling ingredients such as apple butter and boiled cider, and used highgrade fresh spices. With apples, they tried to find a balance between firm or tender, tart or sweet, dry or juicy.

UMass Amherst Apple Pie Ingredients 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup (2 3/4 oz) lard 1/2 cup (4 oz) unsalted butter, 1/2-inch dice, cold 1/2 cup plus 1 to 2 tablespoons ice water

2 lb Cortland apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, diced 1 tablespoon heavy cream, half and half, or milk 1 large egg yolk Coarse sugar

Instructions Preheat the oven to 425˚F. In a medium bowl, mix the flour and salt. Cut the lard and then the butter into the flour until the fats form pieces the size of peas. Add the ice water, two tablespoons at a time, mixing with a fork as you sprinkle the water into the dough. Stop adding the water when the dough is moist enough to hold together when you squeeze it. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured table. Fold the dough over on itself three or four times. Divide in half and shape into two disks 3/4-inch thick. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Toss the sliced apples with lemon juice.

Combine granulated and brown sugars, flour, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg; add to apples and toss. Roll out one disk of dough and line a 9-inch pie dish. Fill with the apple filling. Dot with the diced butter. Roll out the second disk and center over the filling; fold overhang under bottom crust and flute the edges of the pie. Cut several 1-inch slits in top crust to allow steam to escape. Make an egg wash by beating the egg yolk with the cream. Brush the top of the pie with egg wash using a pastry brush. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 375˚F; bake 40 to 50 minutes longer, or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly in center.

The Apples A good eating apple is not necessarily a good baking apple. Students baked pies with seven different varieties of traditional baking apples as well as newer varieties from Cold Spring Orchard, the UMass Amherst research station that grows more than 100 varieties of apples and other fruit on 215 acres in Belchertown. At the final seminar, judges tasted the pies for flavor, firmness, and juiciness. They selected a pie made from Cortlands as the perfect UMass Amherst apple pie.

Cortland Cortland apples are considered the perfect all-around apple, a hybrid of the McIntosh and Ben Davis, an apple now commonly grown by commercial orchards. Cortland apples are sweet and juicy with a hint of tartness. Sam Polonsky ’13 and Gabrielle Datnoff ’13



The Suncrisp apple is a cross of Cortland and Cox’s Orange Pippin. A small apple, it ripens with golden and orange colors and flesh that is yellowish white and juicy with a crisp spicy taste. Joe Doyle ’13

A hybrid developed in 1942, the Idared is a cross of Jonathan and Wagener apples. The Idared is a medium to large apple with a bright red skin. A juicy apple, it is a good choice for applesauce, pies, and cakes. The taste is tart with a strong sweet smell. Stephanie Haley ’13



William Butters in the early 1700s found the first Baldwin apple in Wilmington, Mass. It may be the only apple with a monument, built in 1895 in Wilmington. For decades, the Baldwin was used to make cider. A harsh winter wiped out most of the Baldwin apple trees in New England in 1934. Flavor and texture make the Baldwin one of the most versatile apples for baking and cooking. Heather Olafsson ’13

A cross between Golden Delicious and Jonathans, Jonagold was developed in 1953 and introduced to markets in 1968. Commercial growers favor Jonagold for their large size, thin skin, and attractive color. The flesh is a creamy yellow with the sweet-tart flavor of the Jonathan and the juicy crisp texture of the Golden Delicious. Jason Villagomez ’13

Brunch with Cocktails


UDIE CORNISH ’01 stepped up to one of the highest profile jobs in journalism when she became anchor of National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition Sunday in September. Cornish, an NPR reporter since 2006, doesn’t plan to give the long-running morning news and feature program a dramatic reworking. At first, she says, she’ll “noodle around the edges” of the show. “I’m excited about the sense of possibility,” says Cornish. “It feels a little like being a freshman in college—I could major in this, I could major in that …” As a journalism major and during years of covering Capitol Hill and such big stories as the 2008 presidential election and the legalization of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts, Cornish learned to keep herself in the background. Lately she’s been thinking about what it means to switch roles from reporter to radio personality. “To become a host is to decide I want to bring me to the table,” she says. “I want Weekend Edition to feel like brunch with cocktails. I want people to sit at my table and feel comfortable.” Her newfound calm should relax her guests. Cornish says she’s “a lot quicker to laugh” than in her oh-so-serious student days, when she was an RA in Grayson and worked for campus radio station WMUA and as a bank teller. She got her start with NPR as an intern for WFCR, the local affiliate. “The anxious part of my personality has eased up,” she says. It was fellow Umie Bob Paquette ’77 who opened NPR’s doors for Cornish. Paquette found his calling in student radio and went on to work for WFCR in 1991, eventually advancing to senior producer and morning host. Although WFCR didn’t have a formal internship program when Cornish was a student, Paquette, the news director at the time, made a place for her. “He taught me how to cut tape the old-fashioned way, with a razor blade and chalk,” Cornish says. “Bob could edit the heck out of a piece. When I did my first radio feature he sat down and cut it and, although it was bad, he made it work. I was spoiled after that.” Paquette mentored many other UMass Amherst students. He was also the undergraduate commencement ceremonies announcer from 2000 to 2011 and read the names of degree recipients at graduate commencement. Around campus he was dubbed “the voice of God,” for his authoritative tone and benevolent presence. Bob Paquette died of a heart attack last June at age 55. From her new gig in DC, Cornish sends her respects, saying, “I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for Bob.” —Patricia Sullivan fall 2011

Follow the Money


E ALWAYS TALK in the billions,” says Janet St. Laurent ’77 who, as managing director of the Government Accountability Office’s Defense Capabilities and Management Team, investigates, reports, and testifies on defense spending on behalf of Congress. For her diligence, St. Laurent is a 2011 “Sammy” finalist for her work to improve the management of defense programs and save taxpayers money. The Partnership for Public Service awards Sammies, short for Service to America Medals, to publicize innovative contributions to the needs of the nation so that young people will consider careers in public service. The medals are effectively what St. Laurent calls “federal Oscars.” St. Laurent got the bug for public service during her political science studies at UMass Amherst, where she says she “was made aware Janet St. Laurent that there was such a thing as public administration.” She was recruited by the GAO, a nonpartisan congressional support agency that provides factbased reporting to Congress, from her graduate studies. “My job is leading a team of 250 people who identify and report to Congress on waste and inefficiencies in defense programs,” says St. Laurent. It’s an enormous task: military operations in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have required over a

trillion dollars to date. St. Laurent’s Sammy finalist recognition cited the accomplishments of her team over the past few years, a record that includes achieving approximately $20 billion in defense savings. St. Laurent’s team monitors whether troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have received the training and equipment they need and also whether equipment (in particular, body armor) has been tested according to established protocols. In October 2010, she traveled to Iraq, meeting with senior defense leaders to assess military plans for managing the drawdown of hundreds of thousands of military personnel and contractors. As part of that trip, she visited an Iraqi unit and drank tea with an Iraqi general while reviewing DOD and Iraqi progress in countering the use of improvised explosive devices. The oversight of the GAO is particularly important at a time when the United States military, because of smaller forces and protracted conflicts, has to rely more heavily on outside contractors. “Billions of dollars in waste has occurred as a result of poorly structured building and maintenance contracts, and also poor oversight,” says St. Laurent. The last 10 years have demanded other changes in military culture; for instance, language and cultural awareness training for counter-insurgency strategy. “These are highly complex operations that require constant adaptation,” St. Laurent says. “It’s our job to see that all units arrive in theater with skills they need.” The plans to draw down in Afghanistan over the next few years will give St. Laurent’s team the job of overseeing spending in a time of reduced resources and complex logistics, and will offer more opportunities to save. Says St. Laurent, “We follow the federal dollar and keep the taxpayer in mind in everything we do.” —Laura Marjorie Miller


Banking on Newburyport


URROUNDED BY a sea of congratulatory flowers at Newburyport Five Cents Savings, Janice (Colby) Morse ’73 reflects on how she became bank president and CEO earlier this year.“I’ve been here 34 years,” she says, “and I’ve gone through the whole bank.” She started as a teller, managed three different branches, and has worked in marketing, IT, and as treasurer and CFO. The thriving community bank, headquartered in Newburyport, Mass., has six locations, $640 million in assets and, as Morse’s flower-filled office attests, solid local ties. “The bank is very present here,” she says. “We believe in community involvement.” That commitment extends well beyond Morse’s office: the bank’s employees, half of

whom have 20 years or more of tenure, volunteer for community service at impressive rates. At UMass Amherst, Morse, known to friends as “Colby,” played intramural sports, officiated softball games, and studied recreational therapy. She remembers Julius Erving warming up for basketball games at the Cage with dunks, which at the time were banned in college competition. “He would dunk the ball like crazy and then when the officials came in, the crowd would get loud to warn him to stop,” she recalls. Another UMass experience influenced her future. As an intern at Children’s Hospital Boston, Morse acted as the trusted intermediary between young patients and their physicians. Those rewarding exchanges gave her self-confidence and people skills she draws on daily. —Patricia Sullivan

Born and raised in Newburyport, Janice (Colby) Morse ’73 is the first female president and CEO of the town’s leading community bank.

A Little Help from His Friends


Patrick Lacey with his son, Will, and daughter Evelyn.

ONGTIME FRIENDS FROM the Coolidge dorm have aided Patrick Lacey ’96, of Braintree, Mass., in raising more than $1 million to help children who, like his son, Will, have neuroblastoma. Lacey has founded two nonprofit groups, the national Neuroblastoma Alliance and the local Friends of Will Cancer Foundation, to fund treatment options. Two of Lacey’s UMass Amherst roommates (who both completed their degrees at UMass Boston) work directly with Friends of Will: Michael Cosgrove is on the board of directors and Mark Taylor is the foundation’s treasurer. Mark Pryor ’96, Robert Clark ’ Kevin Cabral ’94, and other Umies volunteer at fundraisers such ’96, as ““Cure Me, I’m Irish,” a St. Patrick’s Day event. As an infant, Will Lacey was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a nervous system tu tumor that is the most common cancer in young children. After being told his son’s condition was incurable, Patrick Lacey sought out a doctor focused on fi di a cure and d began b finding collaborating with other parents to fund her research. Six years after his diagnosis, Will has received 88 cycles of chemotherapy and, while he has never been in remission, his condition is stable. He loves chili dogs and T-ball. “We now have validation of our belief all along that cancer doesn’t have to mean the end,” says Lacey. “We now can believe that instead of ‘a cure or death’ there is the ability for this to be a chronic condition that can be maintained with therapy.” —Elizabeth Tran ’11

Ready, Set, Rope Burn!

In the early history of the campus rope pull, 90 percent of the class could comprise a team. Eventually, teams were limited to 60 pullers, and at one time to just six. Postcards circa 1905.

The 1940 rope pull.


HERE WAS BUZZ around campus this year about bringing back the traditional rope pull during fall new student orientation. In the end, the event was not revived for logistical and safety re reasons, but curiosity about the tug-of-war’s past awakene was awakened. As David L. Adams ’67 and Lynne E. Adams ’67 recount in Massachu Massachusetts Memories: UMass Amherst History, the freshman-ve freshman-versus-sophomore rope pull began sometime around b 1885, even before Campus Pond was created in 1892. By the early 1900s, a long list of rules had been drawn up to keep the a boisterous affair from getting completely out of hand. The rope pull began w with a pistol shot and ended when a team pulled the

other into the pond. Sitting or lying on the rope was forbidden, as was digging holes in the ground. In early years of the rope pull, if sophomores won, they were “at liberty to confiscate all freshman class banners.” In later years, if the freshmen won, they were permitted to smoke on campus, take off their freshmen beanies, and talk to co-eds. The final official freshman-versus-sophomore rope pull took place in 1958. The event was last re-enacted in 1983 for Charter Day, but most alumni know of the rowdy tradition only through its idealistic depiction in the 1963 oil painting by Phyllis Gardner that has hung in the Lincoln Campus Center Concourse for more than 30 years.

The Ringelmann Effect


ILL MANY PULL LESS HARD THAN A FEW? Rope pulling was the means of measurement for a fascinating experiment by Psychology Professor George Levinger and Alan G. Ingham ’78PhD at UMass Amherst in the early 1970s. Levinger, now age 84 and a professor emeritus, explains: In the 1880s a French agricultural engineer called Ringelmann discovered Getting muddy was part of that when groups of co-workers pulled on a rope their collective group perforthe fun. In 1948 students actumance was significantly worse than the sum of their individual performances. As ally drained Campus Pond groups increased in size in a tug-of-war task, the gap between a group’s actual and its before the rope pull. potential performance increased progressively. Above, the class of 1944. This ancient but classic study had never been replicated until Alan Ingham, a graduate student who later became a professor at Miami University in Ohio and a leading scholar in the At left, a team in the sociology of sport, proposed repeating Ringelmann’s study. Professor Benjamin Ricci of the exercise early 1900s. science department helped Ingham build a rope-pull apparatus in his lab in Boyden, long enough for up to six pullers at one time. The wooden structure supported a taut rope attached to an electronic load cell that relayed the amount pulled to a recording oscillograph. Ingham and his assistants conducted two successive studies with male undergraduate subjects. The first study confirmed a drop in the average individual performance as new pullers were added, although mainly for the first three men pulling. This led us to wonder what factors induced this performance loss. Was it a loss of coordination among the pullers? Or was it mainly a loss in their motivation? The second study was designed to answer those questions by eliminating any effect of mal-coordination. In this experiment we again brought six college men into our laboratory, except that five were the experimenter’s confederates and only one naive experimental subject was tested in any single session. After the six men had sauntered into the laboratory, all arriving separately, they received the same instructions as in the first experiment but the true subject always pulled at the front of the rope, with the pseudosubjects behind him. While the true subject exerted himself pulling on the rope, the confederates behind him never pulled on the taut rope but merely made it sway to give the impression that they too were pulling. The results were striking. When a subject thought that either one or two other men were pulling on the rope, his own pull average dropped significantly. This second experiment suggested that most of the declines in the first experiment were attributable to our subjects’ losses in motivation as they believed additional others were pulling in their group. Our two experiments, published in 1974, stimulated new work on “motivation losses” in other areas of group performance such as handclapping or shouting. It was also found that in such situations adding more group members leads to decrements in individual subjects’ efforts. Today this drop in motivation is often referred to as a “social loafing” effect. Later research has shown that social loafing is most likely when group members are not individually accountable for their performance and when a group task is boring or unpleasant. Such a loss in motivation would help explain the failure of collective farming in the Soviet Union and in other collective systems. Without sufficient incentives, anonymous workers lessen their individual efforts.

ROFESSOR SUSAN COCALIS HAS WONDERED if her humorous verse harms her academic credibility, but she’d rather play with words and rhymes than give it up to safeguard her scholarly reputation. Cocalis began teaching at UMass Amherst in 1975. She directs the German and Scandinavian Studies program and is associate chair of the department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. She’s collected her witty work in Lessons out of School, published by Gallery of Readers Press, a Northampton-based nonprofit venture by Carol Edelstein ’79 and Robin Barber.

Mona Lisa Bella Mona Lisa craved a Big Mac with cheesa whose aroma had entered the Louvre. This persistent smell had made her life hell, like Stella, she had lost her groove. Her mysterious smile that used to beguile had turned to a scowling frown. Unladylike droola formed a big poola saliva that now stained her gown. If that da Vinci had not been so stingy, she’d be painted with something to eat. But her Grand Masta left her no pasta. If only she’d gotten some meat! For sauce Veronese she was going crazy. She’d die for a rara bistecca. Genoa salami or hot pastrami —without them? Her life was a wrecka. —Susan Cocalis

Field became the first dean of students in 1961, and helped to shape the tenor of student life through the period of the greatest growth and social change in campus history.

When he retired in 1988, Field was lauded by colleagues, legislators, students, and alumni as a fundamentally decent, compassionate, creative, and effective leader. Field received a 1983 Chancellor’s Medal for Distinguished Service; the title of Honorary Alumnus from the Alumni Association; and an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters in 1989. Richard Schinoff ’67 of Miami, a student leader who went on to work in higher education administration, recalls that Field’s door was always open to students. “Dean Field was very student-oriented,” Schinoff says. “He listened to our suggestions and worked his hardest with the university administration to get things done for us.”



amela K. Edwards ’61, a member of the English department faculty from the

mid-1960s until 1980, was recalled at a recent University Health Services event. In her memory, UHS has dedicated a new annual staff award for exceptional work in quality improvement of health care, and mounted a commemorative display in her honor. The UHS honor is not the first to bear her name. During World War II, at age 14, having lost her mother and with her father at sea, Edwards found work washing bodies in the morgue of London’s Hammersmith Hospital. At the end of the war, Hammersmith posted a brass plaque citing her for “Courage in the Line of Duty.” A recipient of the 1974 University Distinguished Teaching Award, Edwards was known for her appreciation of literature and her high standards of teaching. Professor Arthur F. Kinney remarked, “Of all the colleagues I have had in the university’s English department over more than four decades, few could match her intelligence, incisiveness, and

sheer love of the beautiful.” Beyond being a distinguished teacher, she was notable for her sense of humor. One warm day while teaching in a two-piece wool suit she removed her jacket to write on the board. Noticing sudden rapt attention from the class, she looked down to see that she had no blouse. Not missing a beat, she waved the chalk in the air and said, “I dreamt I was teaching in my Maidenform bra.” The Renaissance Center is planting a Sunburst locust in her honor.

Mad for Corn By Sheryl Jaffe ’86, ’92G


IVE YEARS AGO, upon being made a generous offering of corn from my neighbors’ garden, I found myself preferring the husks. I returned as if called to reflect upon the leaves and ultimately asked for the stalks, for all that they promised to me by way of their potential. Then I cooked, cut, and beat all these fibers into pulp for paper—for sculpture, clothing, envelopes, and artwork. I learned that corn is translated in most Native American languages as “That Which Sustains Us,” by which we may assume that corn may also act as metaphor, yet more than metaphor, as it has, and does, sustain legions of people and cultures in myriad ways. As an artist working in paper, I am intrigued and motivated by this seemingly ubiquitous plant that grows to the height of a person and exhibits a peculiar beauty at each and every stage of growth and decay. The feeling one gets from being surrounded by this installation of corn husks, kernels, pulp, branches, rope, sculptures, and prints is calm, with gentle movement. This is a direct reflection of the experience of being near a cornfield along the Connecticut River in the summer breeze. The installation is at once historic and contemporary: timeless materials bow to corn and to the people who cultivate it.

Sheryl Jaffe’s multimedia installation of corn-inspired art recently filled the 1799 corn barn at the Porter-PhelpsHuntington House museum in Hadley. Jaffe constructed the hanging catfish with cornand flax-fiber paper and locust saplings.

In this annual report of donors, you will read about gifts that are transformative. You will learn about the ways in which UMass Amherst, on the power of these gifts, is rising to its fullest potential. We are reaching toward myriad possibilities in the present and future.

Founders Circle Leadership Giving Circle Matching Companies The William Smith Clark Society Organizations Commemorations Fiscal Year 2010-2011 Gifts

Through their gifts and support, our alumni and friends have shown a dedication to our campus that is substantial and significant. Records for giving have been achieved during the past two fiscal years, while gifts for our endowment this past year rose by 71 percent. These gifts, some of which are the largest in the history of UMass Amherst, will bring unique ways to educate our students, enhance the endeavors of our faculty, and build facilities worthy of a competitive national research university.

The immense generosity of our alumni has initiated funding to construct a new basketball practice facility. A group of gifts has led to the creation of a new Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies that will unite genocide studies and permanently display a Holocaust exhibit. A new endowed professorship will strengthen faculty. Alumni beneficence has dramatically increased the number and quality of scholarships. There is indeed a powerful, cumulative momentum building that will transform our campus and make it more responsive and adaptive for many decades to come. All gifts are important, in whatever form. Whether they establish endowments, fund current projects, or are planned gifts, they are fundamental to our capacity to meet the challenges of the day. Collectively, they help us to creatively, energetically, and optimistically work for a bright tomorrow. The act of philanthropy is a statement of faith in the future, a commitment that goes beyond hope. It is a testimony of belief in the mission of UMass Amherst to build a more enlightened, humane, and livable world. I send you gratitude and appreciation for all you have made possible in the life of UMass Amherst, and all that you will make possible.

Todd McCormack, a son of Mark McCormack, meets students at an event to announce the donation of papers from his father’s vast collection as well as a $1.5 million endowment for academic programs.

Gift Laun nches Transsfo orma ation ns With a legendary handshake 50 years ago, Mark H. McCormack began representing Arnold Palmer and ushered in an era of multi-million-dollar athletic contracts and the founding of the sport management industry. Papers and memorabilia from his career and from IMG, the international corporation he founded, now have a permanent home at UMass Amherst.

McCormack, who died in 2003 at the age of 72, stored all the records from his global travels, business ideas, and the growth of IMG, the firm he founded in 1960 that now has 85 offices in 35 countries and 2,000 employees. Some 8,000 boxes with the greatest historical value will take up the 24th floor at the Du Bois Library where the papers will be digitized.

In one of the most significant gifts to the campus, McCormack’s heirs selected UMass Amherst to preserve and enhance the legacy of their patriarch, donating his papers and a $1.5 million endowment for academic programs. The Department of Sport Management, which now bears the Mark H. McCormack name, will be the nexus of new research and programs focused on sport management. The endowment will support visits to campus by sport industry leaders as well as an international program in sport management education.

Todd McCormack, one of Mark McCormack’s sons and a senior corporate vice president at IMG, says that UMass was chosen as steward of his father’s papers based on the strength of the sport management department, the management school, and the library. “This is a rare combination of academic commitment, engagement with industry, and archival acumen,” he says.

The gift gives the sport management department at the Isenberg School of Management new strength and prestige. “Being a leader in sport management education means continually finding ways to bring fresh ideas and perspective to students and UMass Amherst can do that with the papers of this pioneer,” says Jay Monahan, who received a master’s degree in sport management in 1996 and is now a senior vice president, business development for the PGA Tour.

Hoo ops and Drea ams It is easy to dream about national championships, imagining the collective spirit of school and state rising to new heights. For at least one alumnus, thoughts of a run to the Final Four have been persistent. Motivated by the belief in UMass winning an NCCA title, the alumnus has made an $11 million gift, one of the largest in the history of the campus, for a training facility for basketball players. “I feel that if UMass is going to compete on the national level it has to have national caliber facilities,” says the donor, who earned a master’s degree from the Isenberg School of Management and wishes to remain anonymous. The gift—a combination of cash and a bequest—will be leveraged to secure an estimated $22 million for construction scheduled to begin in the spring near the Mullins Center. It will also serve as an inspiration for others to support the facility and its promise to transform UMass men’s and women’s basketball. At present, UMass is the only campus in the Atlantic 10 conference that lacks a dedicated basketball facility. The teams now jostle with other teams for practice time at Curry Hicks, built in 1931. The new center, which will be designed for both the men’s and women’s basketball

programs, will include practice courts, strength and conditioning facilities, locker rooms, and offices for coaches, team meetings, and sport medicine. Minutemen Basketball Coach Derek Kellogg ’95 is thrilled with the gift and new facility. “A new training center will give our student athletes so many more opportunities to compete like champions,” he says. “Derek does a fantastic job but, frankly, he doesn’t have all the tools. This facility will help,” says the donor. He says his passion for UMass athletics and the desire to have UMass at the top of the collegiate basketball world motivated making the gift. “I get frustrated when I walk the streets of Boston and hear people talk about Boston College basketball but not the University of Massachusetts,” he says. The new facility will enhance recruitment of student athletes as well as be a boon to the women’s basketball team. “This facility will elevate the women’s program over time. There is absolutely no reason why both the men’s and women’s teams can’t compete at a national level,” explains the donor.

Build din ng Excelllencee: Endo owing a Profeessorsship A donor who wishes to remain anonymous has given $1.75 million for an endowed professorship in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, the first gift in the University Matching Program for Endowed Chairs and Professorships, a new public-private partnership to strengthen faculty at UMass Amherst. “The key to a great research university is faculty. Building our faculty is an investment that will promote new scientific discoveries and transform the lives of students,” says Provost James V. Staros. The endowed professorship will be housed in the economics department and will be affiliated with the Political Economy Research Institute. Established in 1998 at UMass Amherst, PERI is a leading source of research and policy initiatives on issues of globalization, unemployment, financial market instability, central bank policy, living wages and decent work, and the economics of peace, development, and the environment.

retain a faculty outstanding in teaching, mentoring, and research,” says Staros. The matching program aims to significantly increase the number of new endowed chairs and professorships. “Ultimately, our faculty gains will help define our academic character and increase our contributions to the commonwealth and the nation,” Staros explains. The campus, says Staros, is deeply grateful for the gift that created this new professorship. With the endowed position, a professor will be offered a competitive salary and discretionary funding for creative endeavors and research initiatives.

As an endowed professorship in the University Matching Program for Endowed Chairs and Professorships, the new faculty position will be augmented with campus funds. UMass Amherst will match the anticipated $70,000 annual payout from the endowment, yielding a total of $140,000 in permanent annual support for the endowed professorship. “Our matching program offers a strong incentive for our alumni and friends to help UMass Amherst recruit and

Jack and Suzy Welch: Creating Opporttunities, Changing Liv ves Since 2002, the John and Grace Welch Endowed Scholarship Fund, created by Jack Welch ’57 in honor of his parents, has been a lifeline for UMass Amherst students who graduated from Salem High School. With a new $1 million contribution from Jack and his wife, Suzy, the endowment will increase scholarship awards from $10,000 to $15,000 annually for eight students.

John Solem

A Salem native, Welch, in 2000 was named Manager of the Century by Fortune magazine. During his more than 20 years as CEO of General Electric, the company’s market capitalization rose from $13 billion to $400 billion. Since retiring from GE, he continues to advise a private equity firm and other companies through Jack Welch LLC. He is currently focused on the Jack Welch Management Institute, an online global MBA program based around his management principles. Suzy is an author, speaker, and business journalist.

Ashley Gonzalez, a recipient of the John and Grace Welch Endowed Scholarship Fund.

Through their philanthropy, the Welches are transforming lives of students dedicated to learning and motivated to become leaders, by providing scholarship support for all four years at UMass. For Ashley Gonzalez ’12, a John and Grace Welch Scholarship made the difference in getting a first-class education. With limited family finances, Gonzalez had few options for college. “Coming to UMass Amherst has allowed me to grow and mature in a way that I would not have been able to do if I stayed at home and commuted to school,” explains Gonzalez. For Gonzalez, the news of receiving the scholarship will remain a memorable event. “Receiving the Welch Scholarship was and still is one of the most important things that has happened to me thus far in life. I still remember the day that Suzy called my home to let me know that I would be awarded the scholarship. I couldn’t believe that I had been selected,” recalls Gonzalez. Others who have received a Welch Salem scholarship say the gift is more than a way to help pay for a UMass Amherst education. It builds confidence, a quality Welch believes produces exceptional leaders. In his book, Jack: Straight from the Gut, he writes, “Confidence gives you courage and extends your reach. It lets you take greater risks and achieve far more than you ever thought possible.”

Professor James Young is the founding director of the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies, which has attracted hundreds of visitors since opening in March.

New w Light on th he Da ark kest off Subjects With a cohort of 16 faculty members renowned for their expertise in genocide and memory, research and teaching on gut-wrenching issues of mass murder flourish at UMass Amherst. The campus’s standing in the field was strengthened in March when the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies opened its doors on North Pleasant Street near the Lederle Graduate Research Tower. Made possible by 11 benefactors, the institute is a showcase for scholarship and education as well as the site for a permanent exhibition, public tours, and events. “This transforms the campus and creates a permanent teaching exhibition on the Holocaust, one designed to change inwardly everyone who sees it,” says James Young, Distinguished Professor of English and Judaic Studies and the institute’s founding director. A donor who wishes to remain anonymous bought the house, valued at $400,000, and created a nonprofit organization that allows for the institute’s exclusive use of the property. A former home for a campus chaplain, the two-story building is well equipped for exhibitions, events, and research by campus and visiting scholars. It has a 100-seat hall with built-in audiovisual equipment, seminar and study rooms, offices, and three bedrooms, one for a visiting fellow and two to serve as libraries. A $250,000 leadership commitment from Pamela Jacobs ’69 and Robert Jacobs ’68 for current use and an endowment jump-started the institute and will help


ensure its financial health. “I think it is important to have something like this institute because we certainly haven’t learned from history,” says Pamela Jacobs. Robert Jacobs believes the institute will offer unique opportunities. “I see it growing to become a magnet for those who want to pursue Holocaust studies.” Others contributed to founding the institute. The permanent exhibition, “A Reason to Remember: Roth, Germany, 1933–1942,” was donated by the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts. Brenda and Al Curtis of Springfield donated the funds to install the exhibition that tells the story of the Roth family during World War II. Of 31 members from five branches, only 11 survived the Nazi regime. Other donations include paintings from the Evelyn and Ben Wilson Foundation; 700 books from Elsa and Herbert Roth, Schoen Booksellers, and the estate of Gaston Schmir. Young, whose scholarship on the Holocaust and memory studies takes him around the world, is donating his 5,000-book collection and archive of digital images. The institute has generated campus interest and inquiries from area public school teachers. UMass Amherst sophomore Anita Abure predicts that the institute will deeply engage students. “With the focus on five families,” she says, “you feel personally connected. I like the fact that it is a different way to learn about the Holocaust.” Within the first three months of its opening, nearly a thousand middle and high school students have visited the institute.

The new living and learning complex for Commonwealth Honors College will transform the campus.

On Track k for Greatn nesss When Peter Bloom graduated from UMass Amherst in 1978, he wanted to build on the knowledge he gained as an honors student and stay in contact with friends from one of the most successful track teams in the program’s history. Now, having earned a Harvard MBA, he remains close to his former teammates. Meanwhile, the pack of UMass runners expanded to include recipients of the Ken O’Brien Scholarship, which Bloom founded in 2005 in honor of the campus’s long-serving track coach. Each August, past and current scholarship recipients gather in Boston with Bloom for a run along the Charles River and a power lunch of mentoring, camaraderie, and fundraising for scholarships. “There’s a strong sense of community among members of the track team and other Olympic sports,” Bloom says, “We have alumni events every fall and spring and this year’s run along the Charles will have about 12 runners.” He fits in the events around international travel as president of Aegis Global Quality and Customer Experience based in Dallas and Mumbai. Bloom is also a member of the Commonwealth Honors College Advisory Board and the UMass Amherst Foundation.

scheduled for completion in 2013. With the living and learning complex, the honors college will for the first time have its own home for classes and residential halls, and space for events, administration, and faculty. “To create a sense of community you need a physical building, a place for people to go,” explains Bloom. He notes that over the past decade as the honors program transformed into an honors college, the education and experience for top academically motivated students has improved exponentially. Bloom believes his gift will help attract more high-caliber students as well as give a vote of confidence to the vision of campus leadership, especially Commonwealth Honors College Dean Priscilla Clarkson. “I am certain that with Priscilla at the helm, this gift will make a difference,” he says.

Knowing the importance of community, Bloom’s latest mission is to help build a stronger kinship among students and graduates of Commonwealth Honors College. Bloom and his wife, Denise (Colls) Bloom ’79, made a planned gift with an ultimate value of $520,000 in support of the new $182 million honors college residential complex,


Sarah Berquist studied at UMass Amherst with scholarships.

Entertainer’s Legacy Funds Student Dreams After making a fortune as a stage performer, Charlotte “Lotta” Crabtree wanted to encourage the “intelligent and active promotion of agricultural pursuits.” When she died in Boston at the age of 77 in 1924, her will named seven charities as beneficiaries of her multi-million dollar estate. The largest bequest was to Massachusetts Agricultural College, now UMass Amherst, where generations of students majoring in agriculture have been graced by a famous woman from a lifetime ago. Last academic year, Crabtree scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students totaled $167,286.

Crabtree, whose trademark was smoking thinly rolled black cigars, was the highest paid performer of her time. She was known as the darling of the California Gold Rush, where as a young child she danced for miners who paid her with gold nuggets and coins. As her career blossomed and popularity grew, so too did her wealth and shrewdness as a businesswoman. Now, her legacy lives on in the hopes and dreams of students.

Farmer’ss Markeet Man nager As a young child growing up in small town outside of Scranton, Penn., Sarah Berquist ’11 didn’t like fresh vegetables. Her tastes changed after working on a farm as part of her sustainable agriculture major. “Now I eat kale. I eat every vegetable,” she says. Berquist says her education and experience at UMass Amherst have changed more than her appetite. “I have confidence in the many skills I learned from my major and life skills like time management and balance,” she explains. She is now in her second year as the marketing manager for the Amherst Farmer’s Market, a cornucopia of 30 vendors selling vegetables, plants, baked goods, meat, eggs, and cheese.

As an out-of-state student with higher tuition payments, Berquist diligently sought scholarships to keep her college debt low. She has shouldered most of the burden of paying for her education; her mother is disabled with a chronic illness and her father is self-employed. “Without scholarships like the Lotta Crabtree I would not have gone to UMass,” Berquist explains. She has shown her gratitude for the scholarship by maintaining a 3.75 grade point average. Faculty members in the Plant, Soil and Insect Sciences Department honored Berquist by selecting her to represent the department at the College of Natural Sciences commencement. In her speech, Berquist told the graduates and their families: “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in college… it is to eat my vegetables.”

PhD candidate Zoraia Barros won a fellowship from the Crabtree Fund and Keith Boyle, a Stockbridge School of Agriculture graduate, continued his studies assisted by scholarships.

Research Fellow

Cranberry Gro ower

Zoraia Barros, on track to finish her PhD thesis in 2012, was in Brazil visiting her family when she received word that a Crabtree research fellowship was in her portfolio of financial aid. “It was a very happy moment,” she recalls. Without teaching assignments, Barros has been able to exclusively conduct research that is twofold: growing taioba, native to Brazil, and other non-native vegetables as well as developing markets for other ethnic crops. Her research is then turned over to Massachusetts farmers, who gain opportunities to diversify their fields and have some assurances that they can sell their produce. She notes that her work, which combines crop research at the UMass Amherst farm in South Deerfield and marketing, was not available to her in Brazil. “I came here for this experience and Lotta Crabtree allowed me to do it,” says Barros.

When Keith Boyle ’10S, ’12 was in seventh grade, his parents helped him land a job in a cranberry bog. “I hated it. I absolutely hated it. But I stuck with it and here I am now,” he says. Boyle is a cranberry grower with bogs he tends in East Bridgewater and Hanson, a combined 13 acres he hopes to buy someday. Why the change of heart? “For one thing I love being outside. Rain, shine, or snow. It doesn’t matter,” he notes. It also helps that he likes cranberries. “I love all cranberries, chocolate covered cranberries, or in cranberry bread.” Furthermore, cranberry growing can be profitable. Boyle learned the many facets of creating bountiful cranberry bogs at UMass Amherst and during several internships. He began his agricultural education at Norfolk County Agricultural High School, earned an associate’s degree at the Stockbridge School of

2011 Annual Report of Donors

Agriculture, and is now completing his bachelor’s degree. He has had internships at the UMass Cranberry Station, for commercial growers, and works for Satucket Cranberries LLC, the firm that owns the bogs Boyle oversees. Boyle spent the spring 2011 semester creating a 3.5-acre bog in Hanson overlooking Indian Head Pond, planting a high-yield vine that has the potential to produce more than 400 barrels of cranberries per acre. “This internship has helped me get ahead of the game,” says Boyle. He also manages a 10-acre bog in East Bridgewater. A scholarship from the Crabtree Fund helped Boyle stay in school and earn a bachelor’s degree. “Getting the Crabtree scholarship was huge,” he recalls. He explains that mentors, former employees, and faculty members encouraged him to continue his studies. “If the industry crashes, I have a degree behind me. It gives me a lot more options.”


With Success, Comes Loyalty Charles Nirenberg ’46 ’94 Hon. has been supporting a faculty chair at the Isenberg School of Management for 21 years, a generous display of loyalty to UMass Amherst he says he could not have made without first becoming a millionaire. “You can’t give money away unless you have become successful,” says Nirenberg.

Nirenberg’s story is the classic rags-to-riches tale. The son of immigrants, his first job was peddling ice cream from a truck at the age of 16. This entrée into the world of business helped him pay for college. “It wasn’t easy for me to have enough money to go to college and UMass was the cheapest way I could go,” he recalls. In return, the campus is on a long list of charities supported by Nirenberg and his wife, Janet. His commitments to UMass Amherst total about $1 million and a prime beneficiary has been Charles C. Manz, who for the last 14 years has been the Nirenberg Professor of Leadership. Nirenberg hopes he has improved the quality of education at the management school by Manz’s teaching “the kind of things I want kids to learn.”

John Solem

In Nirenberg’s case his millionaire status came twice. He lost his first fortune made by pioneering convenience stores and regained it using his indomitable entrepreneurial acumen and tireless work ethic. He employed 8,000 people working in 1,200 convenience stores in 11 different states and now runs a real estate firm in East Windsor, Connecticut.

Charles Nirenberg

Manz has no doubt that Nirenberg’s gifts have elevated his research and impact on students and helped him educate the greater public on business principles and ethics. “The vision for the chair has been to bridge academic scholarship and practice,” says Manz. Consequently, he has been a prolific writer, publishing 20 books and dozens of articles during his tenure at UMass, a feat made possible by holding the Nirenberg chair. His teaching has led to the creation of new courses on leadership that have attracted both undergraduates and graduate students. “I give a lot of credit to Charlie and Janet for making these things happen,” says Manz.

Hisstory Bufff Beecomes Sea afoo od Entr repren neur r When Robert W. Joyce ’50 enrolled in UMass Amherst as a World War II veteran using the GI bill to get a college degree, he knew exactly what he would study. “When I was a kid in the 1930s, while others were reading comic books, I read geography and history. So when it came time to pick a major, it was history.” His admission to UMass Amherst was serendipitous. Joyce grew up in Waltham where his father worked in construction. His father’s job took him to the campus where he happened to meet the registrar. The two men discovered they were both in the same company during World War I. The elder Joyce asked his former company commander whether he could help his son get admitted. “I went with my father up to Amherst and showed my high school credentials and bam! I was in,” recalls Robert Joyce.


He parlayed his academic interest into a seafood import business he founded in 1963 in California. “The nature of the business took me to a lot of places most people don’t go. As a geography and history buff I was able to easily connect with different cultures,” explains Joyce, who continues to serve as president of Joyce Company Inc. and maintains a routine of arriving at the office by 7:15 a.m. In appreciation for UMass Amherst and the role it played in nurturing his love of history, Joyce has made a planned gift of $250,000 to the history department. “The experience at UMass was one of the highlights of my life,” says Joyce.

As the first recipient of a four-year scholarship for international business students, Haohao Guo didn’t disappoint: he maintained a 3.9 GPA, landed a job with a major accounting firm, and earned the 150 credits needed to sit for the CPA exam. On the extracurricular side, the China native worked as a residential assistant, played on intramural basketball, softball, and soccer teams, and during a school vacation visited 20 states. When Guo donned his cap and gown at May’s commencement, his proud parents and brother, having travelled from their home in Guangzhou (known in English as Canton), were on hand. His benefactor, mentor, and friend, Paul Carney ’82 was there too. “Hao and I have developed a close relationship and I expect that I will serve as a mentor throughout his career,” says Carney, a business executive with ties to China who was the first financial executive for Google, Inc. From Guo’s perspective, the scholarship and friendship were powerful incentives. “Mr. Carney has taken an active interest in me,” noted Guo. “He included me in networking opportunities and offered guidance and advice.”

Paul Carney, center, celebrated the graduation of Haohao Guo, second from left, with Guo’s younger brother and parents.

Like his mentor, Guo believes in philanthropic giving. He donated $1,000 to the Paul J. Carney International Scholarship Fund and plans to make annual donations to the fund at increasingly higher amounts. His example, he hopes, will inspire other Carney scholarship recipients. The gift, Guo says, also serves as an appreciation for studying at UMass Amherst and its role in launching his career as an accountant. In September, Guo became an audit associate at Deloitte and Touche’s Boston office, which will sponsor his work visa. “It’s exciting,” he says. “I can apply knowledge I learned in college to the actual world to make contributions to society.”

Where Engineeers Hone Skills Back when Kenneth A. Lloyd ’73 was an engineering student, there weren’t many places to study and brainstorm with his peers. “You either went to your room or the library. There wasn’t any one place where engineering students could gather,” says Lloyd, vice president and general manager of ElectroSwitch, a Massachusetts based manufacturer. With donations from Lloyd, other alumni, and the College of Engineering, mechanical and industrial engineering students now have the Exploratorium, a 2,500-square-foot hub in the ELab Building that fosters study and collaboration.

Donald Fisher, chair of the mechanical and industrial engineering department, led the effort to create the $150,000 space that opened in September 2010. Alumni contributed $90,000, including $25,000 each from Kenneth Lloyd and Robert Hagerty ’74. “I wanted to do something that had an immediate impact on students,” says Lloyd, whose daughter, Savannah, is a pre-veterinary senior at UMass Amherst.

The student center offers other benefits. The new space, Lloyd says, helps students improve their social and communications skills. “Teamwork is important in the business world. We need skilled engineers but ones who also have strong communication skills,” he says.

“This is where most of the work gets done,” notes Nangelie Ferrer ’13 during a day in May when most of the Exploratorium’s computers and rooms are in use.

From left, students Jose Alvarez and Ryan Mones and structural engineering faculty members Scott Civjan and Sergio Brena in a testing facility on campus.

Heedin ng the Call When the call went out from the College of Engineering for gifts to build a much-needed new structural testing facility, 152 alumni from civil and environmental engineering responded. Robert B. Brack ’60 led the campaign with a $100,000 gift as well as a donation of steel valued at $36,000 for construction. “I like to focus on gifts that are capacity building,” notes Brack.

Scott Civjan, structural engineering professor, says the new facility will attract more top-tier graduate students as well as put UMass Amherst on par with other research universities. It also will be instrumental in continuing the growth in the department. Two new faculty members were added to the group this year, bringing the total to six.

The testing facility will have a multitude of impacts. Scheduled for construction near Tillson Farm, the new building will add to the repertoire of structural testing, complementing a lab in the engineering quad that can perform only small-scale testing. More than half of the $600,000 testing center’s cost has been privately raised.

Brack, says Civjan, has been key in elevating the department and bringing depth to research areas. Brack’s gifts have funded scholarships for undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students as well as the existing testing facility that was installed 12 years ago. “Bob’s gifts of money, materials, and research ideas have panned out into great things,” says Civjan.

The new facility will allow experiments on full-size girders, columns, and other bridge and building materials. “There is a great need for testing at full scale. Many research grants require it,” says Sergio Brena, coordinator of the structural engineering group.

Brack, who has been making gifts to UMass Amherst for the past 21 years, is the former owner of Barker Steel Co. in Milford, Mass., a firm his grandfather established in 1920. He lives in eastern Massachusetts with his wife, Janet P. Bailey ’67, ’77EdD.

A Committteed Fam milly

His wife, Jayne (Drury) Dandley is also a member of the class of 1985 with a degree in nursing. Daughter Erinn is a senior, majoring in biochemical engineering; and son, Michael, is a junior in the studio arts program. “There aren’t a lot of universities that can make the claim to be world leaders in such disparate fields as engineering and the arts,” Dandley says. The appreciation for their alma mater runs deep for both Jayne and Sean. The Dandleys express appreciation by making gifts to the campus. They made their first major gift in 2008 by endowing a technology fund for the journalism program with $25,000. Last November they pledged $50,000 to support new journalism classrooms and laboratories in a building that will be constructed near the Campus

Sean M. Dandley ’85, president and CEO of DSCI, a telecom company, knows firsthand the value of a UMass Amherst education. “For me, a broad world view with analytical and effective communication skills developed as a journalism major has helped me succeed in business,” he explains. An entrepreneur, Dandley is one of the founders of DSCI Corporation, a Waltham-based firm that offers unified communication services to more than 1,100 New England enterprises.

Center and Student Union. “Journalists play a critical role in informing all of us. The only way to have a civilized society is to have people who are educated and informed,” says Dandley. Support for journalism, he says, is especially important today. “Journalism is in transition. There has to be a certain amount of nimbleness on both the university’s part and the student’s part. Donations will help as journalism evolves,” notes Dandley.

As a food scientist and founder of a consulting firm that helps corporations develop new products, Peter M. Salmon ’77, ’79G appreciates the value of faculty and recognizes the need to support research. “My main interest is making sure faculty have the tools to do world–class research,” explains Salmon, who founded International Food Network Inc. in 1987. With its 50 employees, the Ithaca, N.Y. firm offers product development services for the food, beverage, and nutrition industries. He has made gifts to support professorships and new laboratories with his largest contribution, $150,000, for the Peter M. Salmon Fellowship. “It is important that faculty have access to the best graduate students,” says Salmon, an original member of the food science advisory board. Tanushree Tokle, who expects to finish her doctorate in 2013, is the first recipient of the Salmon fellowship. “With the fellowship, there is some pressure to perform but it also motivates me,” says Tokle. Tokle, who arrived at UMass Amherst in 2009, is a research assistant in a lab headed by food science professor Julian McClements that focuses on delivery systems for healthy food components as well as other

ways to combat health problems such as obesity. Her research has been top-notch, winning four awards in the last academic year. Salmon believes the research has great promise for improving nutrition and wellness. The sponsorship of Tokle harkens Salmon back to his days as a college student at UMass Amherst. As an undergraduate, he won a contest to develop the best sauce for a clam sandwich offered at a regional chain of restaurants. “I realized then that I liked product development,” he notes. Upon graduation, Salmon worked for General Mills where he was one of the scientists that developed the first Fruit Roll-Up.

Gift Funds Gateway to Success

Peter and Peg (Owen) DiGiammarino, members of the class of 1975, are familiar with the need for preparation for professional life and how even the brightest and most determined students can lack social and self-marketing skills. “Our three daughters, their cousins, their friends, and young professionals where we work have struggled with transition into the real world,” says Peg. Peter explains that young people hear adults say that “the world is your oyster” but they have no idea what that means. With a $20,000 gift, the DiGiammarinos helped support 20 first-year Commonwealth Honors College students, who participated in one of the pilot projects in the new program. “We suggested providing special coaching to top students to increase their odds of success after graduation and also of winning a prestigious scholarship,” notes Peter. The couple hopes the program will expand across the campus once elements of success have been identified.

Designed to enhance the transition to the world beyond UMass Amherst, the Gateway Program in Commonwealth Honors College began in the fall of 2010. The program gives students an edge in the competition for national scholarships, the best jobs, and top graduate schools.

Matthew Cronin is enrolled in a Commonwealth Honors College program designed to make students more competitive.

The students met once a week with Susan Krauss Whitbourne, professor of psychology and director of the Office of National Scholarship Advisement, who led seminars on research, leadership, service, and other topics. Many of the students agree that the program is helping them on several fronts. Matthew Cronin ’14 of Boston says, “This program helps you get into an environment where you have the best opportunity to succeed.” The program already has impacted Melissa Donahue ’14 from Hingham. “We are learning life skills such as how to mingle with other people and to socialize over dinner with someone who is influential,” she says.

The first permanent artists residency program has been created with a nearly $100,000 gift from the Class of 1961. “We felt the artists residency program is the kind of thing that a major university should have,” says Ronald Rossi, chair of the 50th class reunion fundraising campaign. In supporting the Class of 1961 Artists Residency Program, class members cited the gift’s potential for deep impact. “We are trying to make UMass better for students,” explains Rossi. The gift will fund an annual visit of a contemporary visual artist for the next 10 years. During the residency, the artist will create a body of work and donate one piece to the University Museum of Contemporary Art, and two to raise funds to support future residency programs. The creation of art for the campus museum is a unique aspect of the program, says Mario Ontiveros, professor in the department of art, architecture, and art history. But the new program’s most immediate impact will be on students who will be exposed to the artists and the process of making art over a sustained period of time. “That’s crucial. The sustained engagement gives students time for convening, reflection, and dialog,” says Ontiveros. 60

Making UMass Amherst Better: Artissts in Residence

Students worked on a public art project. Thanks to the Class of 1961, they will have more opportunities to learn from artists-in-residence.

Art students believe the residency program will add a new dimension to campus. Steven T. Yu ’14, notes, “While sporting events and concerts are fun, art displays inspire and add a cultural and thought-provoking perspective to campus.” Yu, an intern at the campus museum, was one of several students who helped install The Tohono-O’odhamUS-Mexico-Amherst Border Project, a mural of the Arizona border fence that divided north and south campus for several days at the end of spring 2011 semester.

Christina Farrell received a nursing scholarship based on her high grades, leadership, and compassion.

Sc cholarsship Awarded to Pro omising Nur rse When the late Elizabeth A. Czapran ’58, ’72G created an endowed scholarship in her will, she hoped to help students like Christina Farrell ’12 whose high grades, leadership, and compassion make her nursing promise great. Czapran, who earned a bachelor’s degree in bacteriology and a master’s degree in education, established the endowment as a way to recognize the role of nurses in health care. Farrell is the 2011 recipient of the scholarship Czapran, who died in 2002, created. A resident of Sturbridge, Mass., Farrell chose to study nursing so she would be able to treat the “whole person and not just the disease.” She also likes the wide range of opportunities a nursing career can offer.

“With nursing you do a lot of patient care and I think you make a bigger difference,” she says. Like many students, Farrell is paying for her education with jobs, loans, and help from her parents. “All contributions to your education help. And even though UMass is affordable compared to other places, it is still expensive to get an education,” she notes. Farrell’s sister, Margot, is a sophomore and their father, Mark Farrell, is a 1982 alumnus. She has another sister and two brothers. “They have a long line of kids so it is nice to get the scholarship. It is also nice to feel like you have the support from the community,” says Farrell.

New Schollarsshipp a Boon for r Tomorrow w’s Teachers A new scholarship established at the School of Education both testifies to one alumna’s generosity and affirms the school’s core values. The Marylin C. Haley School of Education Scholarship will be awarded based on financial need to a graduate student majoring in secondary teacher education, early childhood and elementary teacher education, reading and writing, or special education. Marylin C. Haley ’66, who died in 2009, earned a bachelor’s degree in education and taught in public schools in Massachusetts. Retiring from the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, she then worked in elder care services as an activities director

in Watertown, Mass. Her bequest for the endowed scholarship totals $46,000 and the first award will be made next academic year. Christine B. McCormick, dean of the School of Education, notes the scholarship reflects the school’s mission and strengthens the school’s ability to advance it. “Public education,” McCormick says, “is the foundation of democratic society. It fulfills the promise of equal opportunity by providing quality educational experiences for all. The Haley Scholarship will help us encourage promising education students who will then go on to help others reach their full potential.”

With grants, Sofiya Alhassan, faculty member in the School of Public Health and Health Sciences, works to increase physical activities of preschoolers in Springfield.

Im mpr roving Liv vess, Im mprov ving g Commu unitiees When she conducts research in local communities, Sofiya Alhassan, faculty member in the School of Public Health and Health Sciences, adheres to the principle of leaving a place better than before you started. “The whole idea of doing community-based research is to improve our society, to improve our community,” she says.

the rates of obesity and related diseases low. “We have to take into account cultural differences in our studies and dance is a big part of African American culture,” explains Alhassan. Based in Springfield, the project will have multiple phases centered around a core group of 75 daughters and mothers.

With $623,754 in funding from two different sources, Alhassan will be spending the next few years in Springfield on projects designed to reduce obesity and diabetes in girls and their mothers as well as increasing physical activity of preschoolers. The National Institute of Health awarded Alhassan a four-year $448,782 grant, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a two-year $174,972 grant.

In the Robert Wood Johnson funded study, Alhassan is working with teachers and preschoolers enrolled in 10 schools in Springfield. Her goal is to change physical activity requirements at school and to design programs where young children get maximum benefit from physical activity.

With the NIH grant, Alhassan will study the use of Afrocentric dance as a way to increase activity of elementary school girls and their mothers and keep

In both of the projects, Alhassan, who has been teaching at UMass Amherst for the last four years, involves the community and participants at all levels. “You have sustainable change when the community is involved in every step of the way,” she notes.

“Uncle George valued Ann and his family. Education came next,” explains niece Camille F. Balestri, herself a nurse practitioner. However, it was through Sheridan, she maintains, that Balestri developed an abiding interest in nursing and the school’s students, faculty, and alumni. With her background in pediatric nursing, Sheridan personified to him a commitment to excellence in nursing education.

They were long-time, devoted companions, traveling the world together and faithfully attending School of Nursing events. So before he died in 2009 at the age of 88, civil engineer, architect, and philanthropist George L. Balestri made plans to honor the work and career of his dear friend, E. Ann Sheridan ’83EdD, professor emerita of nursing. Now his bequest of $50,000 has established an endowment bearing her name. E. Ann Sheridan

tirelessly both to forge bonds with alumni and to gather and preserve the history of nursing instruction on campus. Starting next year, The Dr. E. Ann Sheridan Scholarship Fund will endow an annual scholarship for a student in the four-year baccalaureate program. Sheridan is pleased with the idea of a legacy that may help others follow in her footsteps and become, as she was, a recognized leader, educator, and practitioner in pediatric nursing.
