OFFICE OF THE PESIDENT April 22, 19t7






To: The Students of the University of Florida

I have been given the privilege of saying a
word as I leave the University. During the nineteen years
I have been here, my relationship with the student body has
always been pleasant and profitable. I have enjoyed the
work at the University, but no phase of it more than the
contacts with the thousands of boys who have come and gone
in my time. I can say with sincere appreciation that no
untoward incident has ever marred our relations. This
relationship will be cherished by me throughout the rest
of my life. Nothing can dim its luster or darken the
bright spot that lives in my heart.

To the students now in the University, I express
my appreciation for your cooperation and hope for you the
successful completion of your work here and every good thing
in life. Wherever I may be, my interest in you will con-
tinue, and I hope that each and every one will feel free
to call upon me if I can be of assistance.

Most sincerely and cordially yours,

pays tribute to one of the most noteworthy accom-

Dr. Tigert.

EDITORS NOTE: A yearbook is judged ... not by what it has
in common with other yearbooks . but by the originality of the ideas it
expresses. This principle has guided us in our planning and executing
of the 1947 SEMINOLE. We have attempted to portray all phases of col-
lege life . to present each phase in its entirety with the hope of show-
ing its relationship .. to the overall picture of our life at the University
of Florida. In doing this we have broken down the divisions of the book
accordingly. In the colleges section, instead of listing seniors, juniors,
sophomores, and freshmen as such, we felt that putting each student in
his respective college was in keeping with our presentation of the com-
ponent parts of college life. The various colleges and schools are intro-
duced by a large picture of the building which most represents it ... the
art theme is in keeping with the college ... and the various organizations
that pertain to the college or school is placed in the section. This was
done to give a better understanding of the colleges in their relation to
the university. Activities . here are the highlights of the 1946-47
school year . student government, military, publications, beauty.. and
a pictorial-story type of coverage of features. In spite of a disastrous
football season, we believe that football is coming of age at the Univer-
sity of Florida . and with eternal faith in the boys that wear the orange
and blue, we inaugurated the policy of devoting a full page to each foot-
ball contest. Heretofore, little space has been devoted to the dormi-

PAGE 10







tories. However, with the increased attention given to housing through
the building of temporary dorms and the Flavet villages, the utilization
of the air base and trailers, we decided to use more space for this phase
of campus life. In the humor section we gave a new twist. After poking
fun at POLICE GAZETTE and LOOK in past years, we decided to satirize
the SEMINOLE. We call this little jest the PAPOOSE. A word about stu-
dent publications ... as we see it, the biggest problems facing this activity
are the lack of sufficient funds in these times of high production costs,
the too few students willing to put forth the sincere effort and hard work
year after year to maintain first-rate publications, and the fact that the
editors and business managers of campus publications are elected by an
often confused student body, unaware of the technical knowledge of the
candidates. Suggested remedies for these bottlenecks are the raising of
student activity fees, the installation of a system of promotions for deserv-
ing workers, and the making of publication positions requiring technical
ability appointive rather than elective. The Board of Student Publica-
tions . has been very co-operative ... the assistance given by the Chair-
man and Secretary has been especially commendable. However, we feel
that a full time faculty publications advisor . a man trained in every
phase of student publications .. would be invaluable to student publica-
tions at the University of Florida. In years hence when you are thumbing
through these pages and reading these words, we hope that these mere
phrases will be realities. When our artist submitted the sketch that ap-
pears with this article, I failed to realize its real significance ... I do now!
When at long last the staff of the 1947 Seminole emerged from the cata-
combs of Florida Union, we left with the hope that we had given you a
book in which you could find many hours of enjoyment. This book is testi-
mony of how well we succeeded. . .

The 47 Seminole UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA

























































GOVERNOR MILLARD F. CALDWELL




"It has been the policy of this administration to build up the
University of Florida and make it, in every way, an adequate
institution of higher learning. To this end we have allocated
several million dollars for new construction. We have increased
appropriations and we have encouraged plans leading to neces-
sary improvements in curricula, standards and administration.

The University of Florida is a great institution but it can be
improved and this administration is endeavoring to be of as-
sistance."



PAGE 14


















"The Board of Control is of the opinion that a new day is at hand for higher edu-
cation in the State of Florida. Its program and perspective for the University of
Florida includes improvement of the physical plant, and the strengthening of fac-
ulty and administrative personnel.

It believes that outstanding activity and accomplishment on the part of faculty
and administrative personnel should be given recognition.

It has placed its hands to the plow for the building of a physical plant at the
University which will bring the Institution's facilities into favorable comparison
with the best state institutions of the nation.

The hope of the Board of Control is not simply to take care of an emergency, but
to build a State University second to none in these United States. During the term
of the present Board, this goal may not be met, but at least an objective will have
been fixed. These things the members of the Board of Control conceive to be their
duty,-no more and no less.

To its aid it calls the student body, the alumni, and all friends of the University."

1946 1947















































Like all Colleges and Universities throughout the country, a post-war influx of stu-
dents, most of them veterans, have made conditions crowded. The University of Florida
was no exception.
With a record enrollment of over 7,000 students, life at Gatorland was different than
other years. Temporary dorms and classrooms, an increasing number of automobiles,
and the previously mentioned crowded conditions were among the more obvious changes.
The six pictures on this page can by no means depict the scene thoroughly, but they
are a small indication of Florida in 1947.

PHI DELTA PHI


In 1869 a group of students at the University of Michigan Law School founded Phi Delta Phi, the
oldest national legal fraternity. The guiding aim of the fraternity has been to promote a high stan-
dard of professional ethics and culture in law school and in the profession at large. During the past
seventy-five years chapters, known as Inns, have been established in 67 law schools throughout the
United States and Canada, and the national membership has grown to over 35,000.

Cockrell Inn was established at the University of Florida is 1919 when the-local legal organization
known as the Cooley Club received a charter from Phi Delta Phi. Some 400 members of the Cockrell
Inn have gone forth from the University to take their places as members of the Florida Bar. Among
those members who have attained prominence in the affairs of this state are: Spessard L. Holland,
U. S. Senator and former Governor; Harold L. Sebring, Justice of the Florida Supreme Court on leave
of absence to sit on the Trial of War Criminals in Germany; Paul D. Barnes, Justice of the Florida
Supreme Court; George A. Smathers, U. S. Representative from the 4th Florida Congressional Dis-
trict; William J. Barker, Federal District Judge, Southern District of Florida; Curtis E. Chillingworth,
Circuit Judge, 15th Judicial Circuit; John A. H. Murphree, Circuit Judge, 8th Judicial' Circuit; Bryan
Simpson, Circuit Judge, 4th Judicial Circuit; Joseph S. White, Circuit Judge, 15th Judicial Circuit; and
Seldon F. Waldo, President of the American Junior Chamber of Commerce.

"Love of wisdom the helmsman of life"-this Greek motto from whence
Phi Beta Kappa derived its name, symbolizes the distinguishing principles
of its Society: Friendship, Morality, Learning. Phi Beta Kappa, the first
Greek letter society, had its genesis at Florida in 1938, with John J.
Tigert as the first President.

There have been 94 undergraduates elected since that time, representing
the upper 15% of their respective graduating classes, Arts and Sciences.
Selection is made on the basis of broad cultural interests, scholarly achieve-
ments, and high moral stature. Alumni members are chosen from Florida
graduates of not less than 10 years' standing, who, by contributions in
the fields of humane sciences and letters or by works of pure literature,
have shown themselves outstanding.

The Phi Beta Kappa Citation for Creative Achievement is given by the
Society to that student demonstrating exceptional undergraduate attain-
ment in the creative fields of writing, dramatics, forensics, the fine arts,
or in original investigative study in any of the liberal disciplines.




The following were selected for Phi Beta Kappa for this year:

Louis Aronovitz - - English
Robert C. Bless - - Physics
Frederick E. Conkling, III Chemistry
Lawrence Kahana - Chemistry,
Psychology, German
Kenneth K. Keene - Mathematics
George N. Kowkabany Chemistry
Henry D. Solomon English, French

William A. Tisdale - Biology,

FIRST ROW: Edward Acree, James Baxley, Richard Crago.
SECOND ROW: William Ebersole, Robert MacLeish, Travis 0. Messer, Abe Moscovitz.



Sigma Delta Chi is an honorary professional fraternity for men en-
gaged in or preparing to enter the profession of journalism. SDX, the
first organization in the field of journalism was founded at DePauw Uni-
versity, Greencastle, Indiana, April 17, 1909. Official publication of SDX
is The QUILL.

The Florida chapter was installed in 1928. Lack of members forced the
chapter to close in the Spring of 1943.

The chapter was officially reactivated in February, 1947, under the
guidance of Professor Wm. L. Lowry and returning members Walter P.
Crews and Volney T. Rogers.

The fraternity offers to its members frequent opportunity for journal-
istic experience through the editing of one edition of various daily and
weekly papers throughout the state. The chapter sponsors the annual
Gridiron Banquet, held in Jacksonville on the date of the Florida-Georgia
football game.

Chapter officers: Walter P. Crews, president; Robert F. MacLeish,
vice-president; Garth S. Germond, secretary; Richard L. Crago, treasurer;
Prof. Wm. L. Lowry, faculty advisor.

After existing on the campus for several years as a local society, the Florida Student
Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers received its charter from the
national organization in 1932. Advancing from year to year the chapter now boasts a
membership of 50 students.
The activities of the chapter include the sponsoring of lectures and moving pictures on
subjects pertaining to chemical engineering, participation in the Southeastern Regional
Conference held annually at one of the Universities in the Southeast (in 1947 held at
the University of Alabama), organizing and sponsoring field trips to the industrial estab-
lishments of the state, and for a rousing finale for the year, participation in the Benton
Engineering Society's "Engineering Field Day".
Events of the year that will remain in the memories of the present membership are the
smashing victory in the 1946 Field Day when the chapter took first place in all events,
the trip to Alabama for the Conference, the field trips, and those "coffee and bagles" re-
freshments after a program.

The University of Florida branch of the A. I. E. E. is a part of the
American Institute of Electrical Engineers. The institute was founded
in 1884 for the purpose of advancing the theory and practice of electrical
engineering and the allied arts and sciences.

The Florida branch, established in 1924, has as its objective the de-
velopment of the electrical engineering student and the establishment of
contact between the student and the practicing engineer.

The growth of engineering education in this country has created a desire on the part
of various engineering societies to stimulate professional interest in the several fields of
engineering and their recognized society. To further this aim, the Student Branch of the
ASME at the University of Florida was established as a training ground for future
members of the parent society.

The organization, by sponsoring bi-monthly technical programs, serves to further both
personal friendships and engineering knowledge. These programs include presentation
of student papers, outstanding speakers, and illustrated lectures.

The Florida Branch annually sends a large portion of its membership to the Regional
Convention. The student representative presents his paper there in competition with
papers from numerous other southeastern schools. This convention with side trips is of
great technical value since it presents the practical side of engineering to be correlated
with the theoretical knowledge gained in the classroom.

The Benton Engineering Society is the co-ordinating professional organization of
students in the College of Engineering, its membership including all engineering
students. It is the purpose of the society to bring before the students men who
are outstanding in the engineering field, in order to give these students a broader
understanding of, and an insight into, the engineering profession as a whole. Each
year the society sponsors the annual Engineer's Day, which has become a definite
part of the students' activities in the College of Engineering. The Benton Engi-
neering Society is affiliated with the Florida Engineering Society as a student
branch.

The Benton Engineering Council is the governing body of the Benton Engineer-
ing Society. The membership of the council consists of members selected from each
of the five engineering societies. The council endeavors to serve the College of En-
gineering and further its progress through its concerted efforts. It formulates
plans for activities in which the whole college participates, such as Engineers' Day,
smokers, dances, and various other programs sponsored throughout the year.

AS WE KNEW HIM





































CHARLES E. ABBOTT
Professor of Horticulture
Professor Charles Elliott Abbott, a leader in all horticultural fields,
built for himself, with versatile ability and untiring efforts, the highest
esteem and admiration in the hearts of all his students and colleagues.
He demanded of a student sincerest efforts, and in turn he implanted
knowledge of priceless value well realized in later years. His work
constitutes no small part in the scientific pursuit of a better agricultural
program which will long be remembered and followed in the coming years.
His friendship was desired by many, a fact which is exemplified by
his membership in many social and honorary societies.
He remains a lasting tribute to the University of Florida.

"Love of wisdom the helmsman of life"-this Greek motto from whence
Phi Beta Kappa derived its name, symbolizes the distinguishing principles
of its Society: Friendship, Morality, Learning. Phi Beta Kappa, the first
Greek letter society, had its genesis at Florida in 1938, with John J.
Tigert as the first President.

There have been 94 undergraduates elected since that time, representing
the upper 15 % of their respective graduating classes, Arts and Sciences.
Selection is made on the basis of broad cultural interests, scholarly achieve-
ments, and high moral stature. Alumni members are chosen from Florida
graduates of not less than 10 years' standing, who, by contributions in
the fields of humane sciences and letters or by works of pure literature,
have shown themselves outstanding.

The Phi Beta Kappa Citation for Creative Achievement is given by the
Society to that student demonstrating exceptional undergraduate attain-
ment in the creative fields of writing, dramatics, forensics, the fine arts,
or in original investigative study in any of the liberal disciplines.



The following were selected for Phi Beta Kappa for this year:

Louis Aronovitz - - English
Robert C. Bless - - Physics
Frederick E. Conkling, III Chemistry
Lawrence Kahana - Chemistry,
Psychology, German
Kenneth K. Keene - Mathematics
George N. Kowkabany Chemistry
Henry D. Solomon English, French
Sociology
William A. Tisdale - Biology,
Chemistry, German
Harold A. Willis - - English
Fred G. Winkler - History, Political

OPmrIO OF THE PBESIDENT April 22, 19t7





To: The Students of the University of Florida

I have been given the privilege of saying a
word as I leave the University. During the nineteen years
I have been here, my relationship with the student body has
always been pleasant and profitable. I have enjoyed the
work at the University, but no phase of it more than the
contacts with the thousands of boys who have come and gone
in my time. I can say with sincere appreciation that no
untoward incident has ever marred our relations. This
relationship will be cherished by me throughout the rest
of my life. Nothing can dim its luster or darken the
bright spot that lives in my heart.
To the students now in the University, I express
my appreciation for your cooperation and hope for you the
successful completion of your work here and every good thing
in life. Wherever I may be, my interest in you will con-
tinue, and I hope that each and every one will feel free
to call upon me if I can be of assistance.
Most sincerely and cordially yours,
