A People's History of NCAA John Cranor '64 and Mary Ruiz '72 Interviewed by Austin McCann '04 AUSTl McCAN : John, tell me about the fir t alumnae / i association. JOIN US FOR NCAA'S 25TH BIRTHDAY PARTY IN MAY 2010! MORE ON PAGE 23 ... JOH CRA OR: Beginning in 1967 with the first graduating class, there was a group of alum who kept aying, "Maybe we ought to think about an alumnae / i association." Then, o, we don't do tufflike that! We're New College!" We went back and forth. By ar und '73, things had gotten t the point where there was an interest in what was going on. Tom Todd '64, Jeanne Ro enherg '64, and Kenny Misemer '64 were involved. Anyway, l said, "Look, I'll make a propo alto the ew College Board of Trustees that they endorse an alumnae / i association." I was working at General Mills by that time, and I remember asking my secretary to type up this proposal. So I did this little dea l and flew down. I went to the board meeting, and Chairman of the Board Bill Kirby gave a copy of the proposal to all the board members, and I asked if they wou l d endorse a ew College alumnae / i association." ure," they said. And now what the hell are we going to do? (Laughs) So we farb l ed around for a little bit. Then, around '74 or '75, when the financial roof came era hing in, Todd and Mi emer and maybe Bobbie Luther '64 and maybe Ray Enslow '64 or some of the charter class member from a da or two behind us had gotten im'Olved. So \ve pretended that we were the New College AJumnae / i Association. We had a tructure, but there wasn't any form o r substance to it. We were ending out letters saying, "Help us ave ew College!" because it was obviou that it was going hu t, that it would be do ed or it would be old. And so we gathered around $700 or 800. Given the age of the a l ums and the times, n t terr i ble. And we offered to end it down, but Arland Christ Janer (wh was President at the time) aid, "Don't do that right now. Hang onto it." So we held onto the money, and then U F bought ew College. When the econd Alumnae/i Th e K e a t i n g Cen te r home to the New Col leg e Alumnae/i Asso ciation since 2004 Association opened in '85, I remember we raised absolute hob trying to find that money. Todd had it! And he put it in a bank account, and it was just in there, totaling up interest. At ome point after the Alumnae / i Association got kicked off again, Todd wrote a check to CAA and sent in all of this previously raised money. AM: Mary, what would you say was the original vision of the econd ew College AJumnae/i Association? MARY R lZ: Well, that came from Dr. Bob Benedetti ... He saw that the only people who really could carry the vision of ew College into the future were the alums. TI1e faculty wou l d come and go, age and pass away, but a l um wou l d always be there for the college. So I got a call from him, as did other people, propo ing the idea of an alumnae/i association, and he asked me to serve on the board. He and Jim Feeney had decided that if they didn't provide the minimum impetus and staff support, there wa no reason to think anything would be different than having no alumnae / i association. o, becau e he was my major professor in my area of concentration and a close friend, of cour e l aid yes. And o did many other That' how it got tarred. AM: Thinking about that vi ion: ew College has the e two competing contradictory driv : wanting to be progressive and cutting-edge, and nur ing a very con ervative need to keep things as they are-even if there's no general consensu on what the stants quo is. Or maybe there's a hearkening to a mythical past. How has this sen ibility affe ted the leadership or vision of CAA? MR: I think Mike Michalson said it with humor, "There' nothing more con ervative than a progressive liberal arts college." At the beginning, there wa a lot of consensus becau e we were all hand picked! But we quickly moved to an elected board, and some of us who were appointed by Dr. Benedetti ran for office. We became an elected board with ome of the a me constituency, but new con tituency, roo, and that' where that tension fir t up. There were th e who were proposing a mi ion for the AJumnae / i Association that was upportive of the college but maybe not so interfering, but this wasn't hared by others who were more recent graduates and wanted to ee a more active involvement in the actual goings-on and operations of d1e college. So, d1ere was a kind of push and pull. I think one of the benefits-or Continued on page 4

NCAA HISTORY Omrinued from page 1 deficits-that CAA had was that we didn't Lheck in w1th other a l umnae / i ociations to find out how it vvas done. We jLn had ideas. And one of the idea:,-which ha endured-was that we v.-antcd to connect alurru and tudents, through a l um coming back and domg a cour:;e or a talk, or making alums available to tudents for career or education mentoring. Making information available that if you wanted to go t UMass-Amherst, you know who had been there and who cou l d maybe help you make a fit or a career. Maybe you could get an intern hip or a job. That vi ion, I think, was true from the tart and has endured to thi day. In fact, it has grown \vith all of the seminars and people coming back to teach. Connecting the alum lack to the college has also been one of the pieces of the vision that ha endured. And that happens with reunions, and with Nimbus, and now with this affinity group [TI1e Four Wind Fowm] that has really rolled. I get birthday from people I haven't heard from in 10, 20years, which i way cool. It' a good reason to get back in touch. During this time, there was also a nC\ver idea, which was much more controversial in the beginning, that we would try to raise resources to continue the idea of ew College. played in some key parts of d1e college' history, uch as the F/U F year ? MR: Although I resigned from the board in 1992, I know that CAA was really a rive. I should also give credit to Mark Famiglio '72 and Dme Di end '72. We knew we had to rai e all of our own operating funds, so l called Davewho is a professional educational development offi cr-am! said, "Dave, I have to rai e enough money to run this d1ing. What do I do?" And he aid, "Well, if 1 were you, I'd do a telethon to the alum ."And I said, "Well, if you tell me how to do it, I'll do it!" And o he did. !twa like paint-by-number, and l followed it. Mark paid for the phone banks and d1e phone room and all of the expenses for the telethon, and a bunch of local alum came in, and we ju t went down d1e li t and tarred rai ing money. And that's Both of us immediately thought of Carol Ann Wilkin on '64 becau e he has that wonderful combination of couragcou fiercen and a quiet, wise under tanding ... becau e you have to deal with all of our temperaments on d1e Alumnae/i ociation. So we were very proud of ourselves for thinking of that, and we had her out to lunch, and he told us no! Later, Bob and I said, "Wait! hecan'ttellu no!Thi isherjob. Thi i meant to be. So we ju t kept at it. Finally he said yes. And he was there for 12 yea Carol v.-as really instrumental because she had a skill set d1at was detail-o r iented, so he could populate the database, get out the mailings, organize the n1dents who were working for us pan-time, and yet get d1e big things done with the board and our initial projects. you can tart an alumnae / i association, but you can't keep it going without a bunch of people coming forward and doing ome key things, like Dave and Mark stepping up n r the telethon, the cl, of '75 tepping up to fund some important resources, and Carol Ann being the right pick. AM: In what wa have you een the Association grow? MR: I have been impressed and touched by how many people come wid1 a passion to the AA Board. And it' AM: Why was that controversial? John C r anor '64 and Mary Rui z 72 speak ing at the A l umnae/ i Panel at New College's 2009 Fami ly Wee kend different: maybe they want to help wid1 admi ions, or maybe they want to get the A l umnae / i Fellows program MR: I think many people aren't omfortable w1th fundrai ing. It':; not part of d1eir portfolio of skill In most colleges, the alumnae / ociation is upported and operated by the development office. That was tnJe to a much l er extent in om beginning bccau e the Foundation did provide the nonprofit umbrella, the accounting, and the corporate structure for NCAA, but it d1dn't pr vide any support. So, we had to raise our own fund as an alumnae / i association, and once we got to doing that, well, would the moneys go to me Foundation for them to allocate the resources? Would it c me to the Alumnae/i Association? I think that kind of plit beginning had something to do with it, too. 1 think we're way past that now. But for many, many years, the Alumnae / i Association operated on onl y what it could ra1se to upport itself. AM: Can you talk about the role 'CAA has 4 IMBl WI TER l 9 what started the Alumnae / i Association-that telethon. It ,,vas fun, because people were calling their frtend And people got kind of goofy: John Klein '69, who was also on the board in year past, challengd everyone in the room to ee who could rai:c the m t from a former lover. Before that point, we had no taff, o jm1 Feeney and 1 were writing the Nimbus, I was taking photos, we had a very small ed i torial board trying to get it out, we had no computer sy rem-at Da,e Disend' instigation, the class of '75 was having their 10-year reunion, so Dave got the cl, to pony up the money to buy the first computer sy rem and Blackbaud oftware that we used for all of the Alumnae/i A: ociation operations. So hats off to the cl of '75! 'ow, I was elected pr tdent-which wa unexpected-and Bob and l were thinking, "Well, we need some taff, but we can on l y afford a half-time person ... who could we get?" en lowed, or maybe d1ey want to end w a chair for Soo Bong Chae. All kinds of vi ions and m1 ion The incr l ible m 1 mber of h urs they arc willing to volunteer in order to do that. I d1 ink that was true at d1e beginning, and I sti II see that happening. o I d1ink d1e alums are going to become increasingly more important to the upport of New College in the fi.m1re. Especially now. It's really hard to raise money, and d1at money i important to the existence of d1e college. I think that now is a good time because especially older a lum:; are at a point in our lives when we can think about making ure that C\\1 College lives on and be able to do omething about it. I think B b Benedetti was right-you really can't feel ecure with the future of C\\1 College with anyone but the alums I f allele fail it' we who know what the c liege is in all of its contradictions, and we're the ones who need to make ure d1at we guard the idea of lew Liege, whatever that is.


AM: It's been interesting to see how the economic rex ion has corresponded with the 50th Anniversary. We've een a lot of people really step up. MR: [I think people] need to look at their priorities and decide what they will carry through this recession, what they will personally support, becau e that' what d1e college needs. That' what any in titution, nonprofit or education, neeJs: loyal supporters who make that mi ion a priority. [And)I think that the 50th Anniver ary is a great rea on to reach out to alums again. I d1ink weal o want to capture alum memories. Once you get into 50 years, we're going to tart lo ing people. And orne of these memori an I tales are going to be lost if we don't capture them. So one of the things we're doing with people for the 50th Anniversary i recording interview getting their remini cences about the college. And of course we'll be dredging up old tories ju t for the fun of it. But I think this a great reason for us-ju t like with any family reunion-to reach out to everybody and try to get people back in touch and cat h up with everyone. I'm lookmg forward to it. AM: How do you d1ink Bill Luker' '72 rebcV square dichotomy plays out here in regard to the vision of New College? (See Nimbus No. 56 for Bill's article.) MR: That is ew College! What would we do without the rebels and the squares? 1l1e rebels have to hake things up, and the squares have to preserve tradition. In leadership, and in educational leader h1p and progressive educational leadership, you have to have wisdom. You have to know what to challenge, to push, to change, and you have to know what to preserve. And a good leader in a leading educational institution is wise enough to bring both along. I think B1ll is wise in chara terizing the rebels and the quares, and l think we need them both if we're going to preserve thi legacy. AM: You graduated in '78, and you became CM Board President in '85. l know that one thing AA has rruggled with is capn1ring younger alum What do you d1ink alxlllt getting younger alums involved? MR: I think it' entia!! They're the ones who are the mo t in touch. The way that you encourage loung leadership i you invite it. You involve pc ple in projects that might be of interest, you encourage them t run for the board, and you charge th m with accompli hing things that they have a p, ion for. There are very few leadership positi n in my life where I volunteered. I '-"'liS almost alwa invited. And I don't onsider myself a hrinking violet. So I think it's incumbent on peoplewhoarc involved in the Alumnac/i Association to invite that young leader hip. An 1 I think there are many who woull be pleased to be asked. lt' a great learning opportunity; it's a great professional networking opportunity. The people on the CM Board are cool and fun. It'd be a good NCAA HISTORY experience. It wa for me. AM: Echoing John's portrayal of the charter classes as initially conflicted as to whether or not to tart an alumnae/i association, many younger alums ee the purpose of alumnae/i association: as nostalgic, failing to ee the important structural role M has played. MR: Well, what' in it for them? That' an important qu tion. There's a wealth of information (. r chools and careers and networking. You learn to erve by erving on a board, which help you in d1e corporate and the nonprofit worll and you get to rub elbows. Here I was, seven years out of chool, rubbing shoulders with the CEO of Kenn1cky Fried hicken worldwide! You don't get to do that. 1l1ere's plenty in it for omebody who is wondering, "Why hould I invest my time?" If you look at it from a selfish per pecnve, tt' a great learning opportunity. And we need rhe y ung alums to bring the no talgia crew d wn to earth to say, "This is what the college need now. This is what the experience is like now. These arc the gaps in the resources. lhs is what rudents would appreciate having from alum It's an entia! perspective. The od1er d1ing i that if you get a people of a certain age on d1e board in predominance, it makes it more con ervative than it might be otherwise with younger people: back to rebels and quares.

ARCHAEOLOGY lAB Beyond the Classroom Professor Uzi Baram introduces the New College Public Archaeology Lab By Tri stan Zucker '09 Until very recently, New College student had nowhere to smdy archaeological mate rials Anthropology Profe sor Uzi Baram used to u e his garage as an amateur labora tory, but, a he chuckle "Now I have little kid -it doe n't work anymore." ara ota County' History Center allow tudents to utilize irlab, but the fa ility moved further away from campus, making thi a less ,iable option, for smdents intent on doin<> in-depth project It i po tble to end artifacts off to labs at other organization or univer itie but as the i student Dy lan Howard '06 explain "The co t of proce sing and thing can be many thousand or ten of thou and of dol lar ... and [student ) don't have that kind of budget." on enough, the c concerns will be moot. In January 2010, 'ew College will break ground on the ew College Public Archaeol ogy Lab ( 'CPAL), which will be able to offer much-needed research space for student faculry, alum and the community. The construction of the CPAL is coming after year of discu sion, \VTite-off. But the available buildings didn't meet the chool's needs, and the idea wa scrapped. Becau e spaces on campus were either already in use or required too much renovation to meet the storage requirements of archaeologica l material the con tru tion of a new facility became the obvious choice. The general requirements a udined by Prof. Baram include: a central room for the proce sing of artifacts, a third of the building for exhibit and torage of artifacts, a mall office pace, and torage for tool ( hovel planning, and waiting. Following the Professor Uzi Baram doing on site r esearch initial pr posal, in 2001 Provo t Calla han ubmitted the project ro ew College' DC lobbyi tin hope of obtaining a federal earmark. Following thi initial ubmi sion, no progress was made until 2007 when local Congre man Vern Buchanan obtained the earmark in the form of a FIPSE (Fund for Improvement of Po t econdary Education) grant from the Department of Education ln ]1nuary 2008 ew College found out that it would receive a grant of 215,174 toward the co t of planning the facility, purcha ing eqUipment, and paying alaries. The next obstacle became finding a facility to house the lab. One initial idea propo ed by a local developer wa the donation and tran porta tion of a historic buildmg from downtown ara ora a a gesture of goodwill and tax I MH WI. TER 2t 09 and trowels). ince the FIP E grant doesn't cover the physical structure of the lab, fund ing had to be generated in ther ways. Thi was accomplished through a PECO (Public Education Capital Outlay and Debt ervi e Trust Fund) grant amounting to 150,000, with the balance coming from the col lege's re erve The total c st i projected at $350,000. The Ia t remaining obstacle to the creation of the lab is location. Cur rently, plans are to locate the CPAL to the outhwest of ,he Four Wind Cafe, creating a quad pace incorporating ew College' Hal C. Ball Anthropology Laboratory & Seminar Room. In my conver arion with Prof. Baram I found out some important difference between the CPAL and its counterparts at other similar in titution of learning. As an undergraduate at U Y-Binghamton, Baram had the plea ure of experiencing an alternative type of lab: "I till have trouble expre ing thi : they had a ba ement where some faculry had office and then a sub-ba e ment. That' where the lab were! Can you imagine?" The NCPAL architects al o designed a porch for the lab that Prof. Baram envi sion as an "outdoor cla room." He hope to eventually lay concrete and put up per manent awning enabling the porch and adjoining pace to function as a natural, in teractive learning space embodying the idea of a public archaeology lab: tudents and the community coming together to learn about our pa t. This hypothetical space could play host to primary and secondary school stu dent parti ipation, film being projected on the wall of the lab, and students and community member mingling at com munity events aimed at uncovering and preserving the pa t. A problem plaguing most archaeol ogy lab is lack of space. As a graduate student at the Ma s-Amherst Prof. Baram worked in lab that were still toring materia l s from the mid-19th century: material that were tudied in the mid-19th century, not relics from that age Tt is a fact that the o lder an archaeology lab is, the more material it ha to tore, and the less pace it ha for new artifact and exhibit Storage will not be a problem in the brand new lab.

The goal wa to provide an off campus re idence where ew College tudents could feel comfortabl e away from the campus community.
