Shortly after Mother’s Day last year, Dr. Zach Baeseman ’05 sent us a moving letter in which he described a quiet walk across campus and celebrated his alma mater – his “nourishing mother,” to translate the ancient idiom from the Latin. We had to wait a year for the calendar to turn to the right holiday once again – but we think you’ll appreciate Baeseman’s sentiments the more.

FROM THE ARCHIVES: Our monthly e-newsletter, @St.Norbert, piloted its very first issue in July 2006 to accommodate a desire for online news from the college. The issue featured seasonal class sessions, the alumni directory, arts and entertainment, and the loss of Gert Dixon, a beloved member of the SNC faculty.

SNC News (the internal newsletter on campus) asked: Is SNC evident in your socially distanced study space? The answer: Yes!

* Jonathan Lemens ’21 now has the SNC banner that hung in his college room hanging over his at-home workstation.

* Marcia Dressel, mom of Oliver Dressel ’22, reports (via the St. Norbert College Parents page on Facebook): “Norby Knight rides in the car. I'll have to check study space … Wearing SNC sweatshirt. Cap on desk and, yes, the laptop is St. Norbert College-branded as well.”

* President Brian Bruess ’90: “Without question! I have an SNC pennant in my background, a communio print (#1 of 100) produced by Katie Hopkins '19, my collection of SNC ball caps, and my handmade and hand embroidered SNC 'President in communio' pillow, for the occasional presidential nap!”

* Lydia Myszka ’23: “My sister and I made little St. Norbert and Virterbo flags to signify when our remote colleges are in session. (They are made from a recycled toilet paper tube ... inventive!)”

* Susan Allen (Communications) writes: “The remote-working dress code lets me work in an old green-and-gold hoodie with the slogan: “St. Norbert Times: Without Fear or Favor Since 1929.” I’m so proud of the role the media around the world played in alerting the world to this crisis and continuing to fight it – and, hooray for student journalism!”

* Bruce Glassco ’23 has a painting from his social group hanging in his study space.

* Nicole Micolichek ’11 (Pre-Health): “I needed something more than a blank wall for Google Hangout meetings – so I pulled out our snowman [cutout]. He wears my SNC scarf!”

* Mark O’Brien ’93: “I'm letting you know SNC is always top-of-mind for me, but I only have my old baseball hat, jersey and a few sweatshirts that my daughters now wear ... no pens or socks :) “

I must first confess that I don't always read the magazine in a timely mannner and so my comment is of an article from your summer issue of 3 years ago, 2014. However, the article is about those who played a sport about 65 years ago and so I hope that I am not too late to write on it. Their sport was baseball and so of course I'm writing about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League article. I agree that it was a league that opened professional ball to women and paved the way for other women to play professional sports. However, it was not the first league in which women played professional sports. The Roller Derby began in the 1930's and had many women on it. I do believe that all of the women who were the first skaters in that league are gone. However, there are a number of women who skated in the 1940's who are still alive and some are well. In fact, one of them just turned 97. The League disbanded in 1973 due to the rapid decline in the economy that caused many fans to forgoe attending the games as well as the inability of the players to fuel their cars that they used to travel from city to city to play their games. In 2004, a former fan motivated the reactivation of the Hall of Fame in order to honor players while they were still relatively healthy enough to receive the awards. The idea of it began when Joan Weston, often called the Queen of Roller Derby, passed due to the human form of mad cow disease. People then realized that if the players were not inducted into the Hall then, many would be passed before their induction into the Hall. The Roller Derby skated in Green Bay a number of times and I attended one game there in March of 1972, a couple of months before I graduated. My Aunt, Cathie Read, was a skater and so she invited myself and a number of fellow students to the game for free. I met with her after the game for a few drinks at the Holiday Inn bar. She intoduced me to a few of the players including Tony Roman and his wife. Fuzzy Thirston, retired player for the Packers, introduced himself to my aunt and we all had an enjoyable talk. My aunt invited me to visit California, where her team skated. Several years later I finally did visit and have been living here ever since. I invite you to go onto the facebook site 'National Roller Derby Hall of Fame'. I belive that you must get permission from the administrator, Phil Berrier, to access the site. However, I believe that he lets most people on it. I simply mentioned that I am the nephew of Cathie Read, one of the Hall of Famers. Once on the site, you will be able to view the films of past games and read the blogs of many of the former skaters to get an insight into what they are doing now. The women players certainly opened the door for many other women skaters as well as players of other sports. Although the original league is gone, the Roller Derby is still alive and well. There are a number of newer leagues that have changed the sport in order to attract new fans. You can search the web to find many of them. If anyone of you would like to write an articled about how these women encouraged others to play sports, I am sure that you can find a great deal of information on the web. I am sure that many of the past players would be willing to contribute and my aunt no doubt would be one of them. You can contact me if you would like me to introduce you to me aunt or Mark Roman, the son of skater Tony Roman.
