Ninety-Seventh Annual Commencement


Welcome to Caltech "There is much that is pleasant and much that is sad in the exercises of commencement. With the congratulations; a las, there is too often the good-by." These sentiments are as true for this year's graduates as they were for the students for whom the words were

written- the


men and 4 women who g raduated from Throop Polytechnic Institute

in :1897- Those graduates were part of one of the first classes to graduate from Caltech's forerunner. Taday's graduates are a part of Caltech 's yearlong cen tennial celebration. The California Institute of Technology developed from a loca l school of arts and crafts founded by the Honorable Amos G. Throop, a prominent Pasadena businessman. Throop offered what was at that time a unique curriculum, emphasizing vocational and technical training. The schooL located in part of the Green Hotel, opened its doors on November 1, 1891. Initially named Throop Univ ersity, it was later renamed Throop PolytechniC 1nstitute. It became the California Ins titute of Technology in 1921. Today, Cal tech is located on a 124-acre campus and operates seven off-campus astronomical, seismologicaL and marine biological facilities, as well as adnl.inistering the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Caltech has an enrollment of some 1,800 students"more than half of whom are in graduate studies. The faculty, consisting of about 275 professorial members and more than 425 research members, includes three Nobel laureates. Over the years, 21 Nobel Prizes have been awarded to Cal tech faculty members and alumni. Thirty-three Caltech faculty members and alumni have received the National Medal of Science and three have won the National Medal of Technology, the nation's highest honors in science and technology . The Institute is honored today to have President George Bush as its commencement speaker. Howe ver, President Bush is not the first U.S. president to attend a Caltech function. There have been five others-William Taft came while in office; Teddy Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover visited after leaving the Oval Office; Richard Nixon came when he was vice president; and Ronald Reagan spoke at a Caltech event as governor of California. The visit that drew the most attention, as evidenced by the local newspapers, was Teddy Roosevelt's on March 21, 1911. He was touring southern Califo rnia and stopped in Pasadena to give a lecture as a part of Throop's community lecture program. His talk, "A Zoological Trip Through Africa," was given in a 200Q-Seat amphitheater at the Hotel Maryland. Five dollars got a front-row seat; for one dollar you could stand in the back. Although the auditorium was reported to be full, it was not sold out. Every minute of Roosevelt's visit was reported in detail in the local newspaper, the Pasadena Sta r, including instructions on which street corners various civic groups were supposed to meet in order to greet the former president's motorcade down Colorado Boulevard. During his tour of Pasadena, TR visited Throop Hall, where he had some kind words to say about Throop: "I believe that the most impo rtant work for us in America today, in the way of education, is to train our people vocationally." William Taft's visit was much less elaborate than Roosevelt's. On October 16, 1911/ Taft was being hurried to Los Angeles for an appo intment. He took time out to gi ve a brief speech to a group of students of Throop Polytechnic Institute who were assembled in Tournament Park. On the study o f technical subjects Taft told the students, "Your

mental discipline will be jus t as good w hen derived from these practical subj ec ts as if yo u secured yo ur mental discipline the old-fashioned way ." Taft continued , "I have no doubt th at thi s will be a most successful in stitut ion and congratu late Pasadena upon having it wi thin her walls." Little did Taft kn ow that onl y two yea rs later Throop Polytechnic Ins titute would be renamed Throop Co llege of Tec hnology . By '921 the name chang ed again, this time to the California Institute of Technology, and the Board of Trustees set th e school's new course: to pursue scientific resea rches of the grea test importan ce and "to continue to cond uct tho rough cou rses in engineering and pure science, basing the wo rk of the se co urses on exceptionally strong instructi on in the fundamental sciences of ma thema ti cs , physics, and chemistry; broadeni ng and enrichi ng th e curriculum by a liberal am o un t of in struction in such subjects as English, history, and economics ; and vitalizing all th e work of th e In sti tute by th e infusion in ge nerous measure of the spirit of resea rch." Herbert Hoover came to ca mpus on March 14, 1936- three years after he had left the White House. The occasion was the dedicati on of two buildings, North Mudd and Arms Laboratories. In reflecting on Caltech, Hoover sa id , " In the expan sion of human understandi ng and the lift to the human mind comes th e adva ncement of ci vil iza tion." Richard Nixo n, on a five-day tou r of Ca lifo rnia, visi ted the campus in Februa ry 1958, while he was vice president. He gave a speech to stud ents and faculty in Tournament Park. Photographs show Nixon and Ca l tech President Lee DuBridge, talkin g to reporters a nd shaking hands with well -wishers. Ronald Reaga n is th e only pres iden t of the fi ve who did not se t foo t on campus. While gove rn or of Californ ia, he was the keyno te speaker at a ga la dinner at the Ambassado r Hotel in Los Ange les on November 8, 1967- the kickoff event o f Caltech's development campaign , "Science for Mankind. " The students, faculty , and staff of Cal tech are looking forward 10 welcoming President Bush in this, our centennial year.


The Commencement Ceremony These tribal rites have a very long history. They go back to the ceremony of initiation for new university teachers in mediaeval Europe. It was then customary for students, after an appropriate apprenticeship to learning and the presentation of a thesis as their

masterpiece, to be admitted to the Guild of Masters of Arts and granted the license to teach. In the ancient University of Bologna this ri ght was granted by authority of the Pope and in the name of the Holy Trinity. We do not this day claim such high authority.

As in any other guild, whether craft or merchant, the master 's status was crucia L In theory at least, it separated the men from the boys, the compe tent from the incompetent. On the way to his master 's degree, a student might collect a bachelor 's degree in recognition of the fact that he was half-trained, or partially equipped. The doctor's degree was somewhat different. Origina ll y indistinguishable from the master's, the doctor's gradually emerged by a process of escalation into a supermagisterial ro le-first of all in the higher faculties of theology, law, and medicine. It will come as no surprise that the lawyers had a particu lar and early yen for this special disti nction . These gradations and distinc tions are reflected in the quaint and colorful niceties of academic dress. Of particular interest is the cap or mortarboard. In the form of the biretta it was the peculiar sign of the master. Its use has now spread far beyond that highly select group to school girls and choir boys and even to the nursery school. Sic Iral1sil .... The gown, of course, is the basic livery of the schola r, wi th its clear marks of rank and status-the pointed sleeves of the bachelor, the oblong sleeves of the master, the full sleeves and velvet trimmings of the doctor. The doctors, too, may depart from basic black and break out into many colors- Harvard crimson or Yale blue or the sca rlet splash of Oxford. Color is the very essence of the hood: color in the main body to identify the un iversity; color perhaps in the binding to proclaim the subject of the degree-orange for engineering, gold for science, th e baser copper for economics, white for arts and letters ,

green for medicine, purple for law, scarlet for theology, and so on. Size is a further variable, as the hoods tend to lengthen from the three feet of the bachelor to the four of the doctor. So the birds are known by their plumage. With this color and symbolism, which is medi aeval though mutated, we stage our brief moment of pageantry, paying homage to that ancient community of scholars in

whose shadow we stand, and acknowledging our debt to the university as one of the great institutional constructs of the Middle Ages. While looking back, however, we also celebrate the achievements of this present generation of students and look forward to the future of these o ur younger colleagues, whom we now welcome to our midst.
