The other All-America guard in Aaron Rosenberg's senior year (see above) was Bill Corbus of Stanford—and Corbus' Stanford was one of the rare teams that beat Rosenberg's USC. Not unnaturally, Stanford's nominating citation in this year's Silver Anniversary All-America awarded praise to Bill Corbus, now chairman of Stanford's own Athletic Board. But on career achievement the man Stanford nominated was End David Packard, campus leader and Phi Bete, who is today chairman of Stanford's Board of Trustees. An engineer by training, Dave Packard served an apprenticeship at GE (like Hamilton's Henry Harding—see page 90), later launched into the electronics business. The Hewlett-Packard Co. of California, founded by Dave and a Stanford classmate, employs 1,700 people, did a $30 million business in "measuring tools" for the electronics industry last year, is still growing.
JAMES F. KELLY
Author and advertising executive, New York City
Jim Kelly played football at a college that values thought, and Halfback Kelly has remained a thoughtful man. Most of his week he is vice-president and creative supervisor for the New York advertising agency of Ellington & Co.; on weekends he is an author who this fall examined a cast of Madison Avenue characters, and incidentally the theology and morality of Madison Avenue, in an uncommonly good novel on the subject called The Insider. Kelly objects to the stereotype of the ad man "as a helpless Madman as portrayed in books." Advertising "is not a hungry predator on the prowl nor a fey branch of show business; it is an integral part of human society and should be judged as such." Kelly thinks that college football has value on Madison Avenue too. "One of the main things you learn in football," he says, "is footwork, how to fall loose, how to keep on plugging."
CHARLES T. KINGSTON JR.
Insurance executive, Hartford, Conn.
The chapel at Trinity College, built since Chuck Kingston's time, reflects in the skilled carvings of its pew ends some of the events of Trinity history. One carving—of a forward pass—reflects the cherished moment when Guard Chuck Kingston intercepted an Amherst pass that led to Trinity's first victory over Amherst in 18 years. Kingston still has the ball, and football remains among the enduring enthusiasms of a man who was president of his class and student-body president and who, as Hartford general agent for Union Mutual Life, has been selling a million dollars' worth of insurance every year since 1952. Some of his activities on the side: chairman of the Hartford Community Chest drive, president of the Hartford Hospital Association, president of the Trinity Alumni Association. In World War II he was a major in military intelligence, won four decorations during service in the Pacific.
AMOS ALONZO BOLEN
Attorney, Huntington, W. Va.
WASHINGTON AND LEE
Amos Alonzo Bolen (who is not sure whether his father meant to name him for Amos Alonzo Stagg or not) grew up in the "deep, feuding and un-prosperous" mountains of Kentucky. His first job, at 13, was shoveling sawdust for a lumber outfit on a stream with the symbolic name of Troublesome Creek. Bolen made Washington and Lee on character and football promise, waited on tables, worked summers in the steel mills at Ashland, Ky., became captain of the football team, also Phi Beta Kappa, valedictorian, president of the student body. After law school he turned down opportunities in larger cities, settled in hill-and-river country. "My exact reason for doing so escapes me. Perhaps seven years at Washington and Lee never took the country out of the boy." Today he is a partner in one of the most active law firms in the Ohio Valley, counsel for the Chesapeake and Ohio R.R.
CHARLES H. BROWN
Internist and professor of medicine, Cleveland
Charlie Brown was Wesleyan's football captain (and a Phi Bete) in a good year for the Cardinals; though preseason underdogs they won the championship of the Little Three. Early in his career Brown decided that the same qualities that make for success in football—for which he uses with fondness such well-tried words as drive, desire, persistence, teamwork—lead to accomplishment in medical research. Today, a distinguished internist and professor of medicine at the famed Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Brown is sure of it. For 20 years he has been making steady contributions to advancing medical science; alone or teamed with colleagues he has published 90 original medical treatises—and this in a regular work schedule that includes lectures, seminars and a daylong succession of patients. For just one period he published nothing: from Pearl Harbor until 1946 he was too busy as an Air Force flight surgeon.
