In his 14 years at Clarkson, Len amassed a record of 254-97-11, for a =.717 percentage.
He guided Clarkson to an ECAC title in 1966, and into the NCAA tournament in '62, '63, '66,
and '70. His teams were almost invincible in Walker Arena, as his record there shows: 143-37-

Boston College. In the fall 1991, he began his 34th and last coaching season with a 659-319-35,
a .650 percentage. In this his final year of a spectacular career, on October 19, 1991, Len
brought his Boston College team to play Clarkson in the first collegiate game played in the
New Cheel Center Arena; Clarkson won 9-3.

"Fysics Forum."
Choosing this different spelling, a group of interested physics students
organized a group to study the fields of theoretical and applied physics far beyond the usual
classroom activities. Among other activities, these men created an exhibit for the New York
Science Fair in May 1957, set up a series of lectures on nuclear physics in fall 1957, and took
part in the International Geophysical Year in 1958 by assisting in the study of the Aurora
