Sylvester , October 24, 2018 Let’s tell the campus lore before memory fades and before participants can no longer add to or dispute what is here related. It was a spring night, perhaps 1956, cool and breezy, when three collegians abducted a cow from a pasture near Payson Hall. The animal was led northward past the Men’s Residence, Hepburn, and Gunnison Memorial Chapel to Richardson Hall. Once there, she was encouraged to climb the outside stairs to the fourth floor, where she was found the next morning bellowing her distress. Was the incident, as some believe, the result of compassion from a few members of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity concerned about the animal on a particularly cold and damp night? Or could there have been a more prankster appeal to the ordeal? We may never know the truth of the matter. n JOYCE CALDWELL RHODES '57, CLASS REPORTER It was a spring night in 1956, cool and breezy… The School of Agriculture, St. Lawrence University was founded in 1906 and became the New York State Agricultural and Technical Institute (ATI) in 1941, incorporated into the State University of New York system in 1948, and relocated to what is now SUNY Canton in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.
