Sports Stars.
Paul Martin and Bruno Lewandowski were named to All-New York State
collegiate soccer team. Lewandowski, center forward, team high-scorer with 14 goals, led the
Golden Knights to a record of four wins, two losses, and one tie. Martin, fullback, led
Clarkson's defense which allowed opponents an average of only two goals per game.
Bob Shepard became Clarkson's highest-scoring basketball player on January 12, 1959,
when he scored 17 points against Cortland to bring his total points to 1,080, breaking the old
record 1,070 held by Dave Olmsted '57; Olmsted's record 521 points for one season still stood.
(See 1995)
Hockey Champs.
Bob Van Lammers hammered home four goals to help Clarkson defeat
Harvard 5-1 in the NCAA Tournament in Minneapolis, and thus win third place in the
tournament and claim the Eastern championship. Denver knocked off North Dakota to win the
national championship. For his performance, Van Lammers was named to the All-Tournament
First Team, and Goalie Ed MacDonald to the All-Tournament Second Team.
Sigma Tau Iota.
Twelve members of Clarkson's newest department, Industrial Distribution,
formed their own honor society, Sigma Tau Iota, on March 14, 1958, to recognize outstanding
traits of scholarship and leadership for ID majors. Its goals also included the desire to stimulate
interest in and to coordinate the activities of the ID department. Pioneering this field of study,
Clarkson began the program in 1954, and in May graduated the first students to receive a
bachelor of science degree with a major in industrial distribution.
On a practical note, the STI members served as hosts and guides for visiting speakers
arriving on campus for industrial distribution seminars.
As a long-range goal, the members sought to promote and organize a National Society
of Industrial Distribution as similar ID programs were started in colleges across the country.
