Go, You Huskies!

Matt Cameron
Matt Cameron above the rim.

The Lode did a recent article on the best Huskies teams and players of the last decade. I started thinking about my favorites memories.

I was back home for the 1980 Winter Carnival, and my Dad and I attended the game when John MacInnes got his 500th victory, 6-4 over North Dakota. I was covering the game for the Sault Evening News, and I actually photographed a puck going in the net as I was shooting high in the northwest corner of the MacInnes Student Ice Arena (where a nice suite is now located). Old hockey games in Dee Stadium were a blast, too, watching the Tech students and feeling the stands bounce as the place got rocking.

I was also lucky enough to see Larry Ras and Jim VanWagner carry the ball for the football Huskies. Dave Walters was one of those rare talents who could run and throw from the QB spot (like our current Steve Short). Hosting the NCAA Division II football regional in 2004 was truly special.

I've never seen a Husky jump as high as Matt Cameron from that special 2002-03 men's basketball team. His dunks were air-walks. And the regional games for that season remain one of my all-time favorite sports memories.

For the women, I'm partial to Elizabeth Pietila, since I saw her take Hancock's high school team to the state championship game, and she is currently fifth all time in assists and sixth in steals for the Huskies. Jenny Postlewaite played with pure guts and determination, similar to today's Katie Wysocky, who also possesses incredible scoring and rebounding talent. Today's women's team can take its place next to the 1992-93 team that finished third in the nation, for overall talent and stingy defense.

I could on and on: Kirk Williams' one-handed grab for six, the 2003 hockey Huskies coming from a 6-3 deficit with seven minutes left in the third period to beat Northern in OT. . .

We'd love to hear your sports stories, too, via the 125th anniversary website. It's a great way to help us build a history of Tech.

And, remember that new Alumni Association Facebook page.

You can send your memories to me, too.

Middle School Girls Get WISE at Michigan Tech

Local middle school girls spent the day exploring the excitement of science and engineering fields at Michigan Tech, during the annual Get WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) program this Thursday. The event, coordinated each year by the University’s Youth Programs office, brings more than 250 sixth, seventh, and eighth graders from 15 local schools to campus for a day of hands-on activities, talks with female role models, and more. The day’s doings are meant to stir interest in science and engineering. More

Who Stands Out at Career Fair?

Organizers expected 2,000 students to converge on the SDC Tuesday for the February Career Fair. Ninety-nine companies were registered, and students routinely lined up ten deep waiting to talk to recruiters; up to fifty stood in line for some of the bigger firms. What are recruiters looking for? Jim Turnquist leads Tech’s effort to help students get a start on a career. He and Julie Way, a career advisor, said that the way to make a good impression begins with the straightforward: look a person in the eye; offer a firm handshake; craft a good resume; know dining etiquette; and dress up.

New Tradition at Carnival: Iditarug

iditarug

In what could be a new Winter Carnival tradition, the First Annual Iditarug (Snow Rugby) Tournament was held on Saturday, February 6 up at the SDC soccer practice fields.

Tech's men's team and the newly formed women's team played against clubs from Northern and the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE).

After a day of tries, tackles and scrums in the snow, the teams gathered for a traditional post-game social. Tech's Rugby Club president Marc Sanko, a history and archeology senior, was very pleased.

iditarug"It was a great to play on Tech's home turf/snow and get a win over MSOE and NMU's B side. With success of this first year we expect to expand the event next year with more teams and spectators."

Meredith Mulder, first year material science and engineering major and president of the women's club says, "It was a great learning experience for the our team and it was a big step for us. Everyone had a lot of fun."

Las Vegas Pub Night, February 18

Over forty alumni and friends spanning six decades of class years attended the first Las Vegas Chapter event last Thursday. Chapter Leaders Janna Roome '99 and Matt Reed '04 helped organize the event, which featured a University update and Tech gear raffle at a popular local brewery.

Chapter leaders Janna and Matt meet with their alumni (left to right): Matt Reed '04, Agnes Smith '04, Janna Roome '99, Brent Burns '03, Jeremiah Beckman '02.

utahSalt Lake City Game Watch, February 19
Alumni in the Salt Lake City area gathered at a local pub to cheer on our Huskies in their nationally televised hockey series against Denver. Many alumni shared their outdoor adventure stories from Tech and how that led them to pursue their careers in beautiful northern Utah. Not surprisingly, there were a number of Mt. Ripley ski patrol veterans amongst the crowd.

Colorado K-Day in Denver, February 20
Dave '79 and Ellen '79 Nelson hosted the 23rd Colorado K-day and pasty dinner in association with the Denver hockey series this past Saturday. Over 120 alumni and friends enjoyed a hot pasty “imported” from the UP and heard a University update from President Glenn Mroz '74. A total of 150 cheered on the Huskies as they played a tough game against the #2 team in the nation. Three current Pep Band members —Scott Nelson '10, Meghan Knudstrup '10, and Rob (GP) '10—drove from Houghton to make sure that the Colorado crowd heard all the best chants and cheers they could deliver.

Mystery House

bridge house
That's the house on the east corner of bridge street and Montezuma ave. It looks like the old bridge in the background.

Jim Pruner 61

Editor's Note: This one was way too easy, as a record number of alumni and friends could place the location!

***

Dennis, I grew up in Houghton and went to school with a fellow that lived in that house. His father owned a gas station/repair shop in West Houghton, across the street from Hardy"s.

Paul Gauthier

***

A block or so up Bridge St. looking down at the old swing bridge.
Larry Watson 51

Dennis, My wife and I came up with this location. The north east corner of Montezuma and Bridge.

Jim Olson

today
Mystery Shot is - Bridge Street in Houghton looking north across the old bridge. I was Born and raised in Hancock, graduated from Hancock High in 1971. I played softball for Paul’s Bar during my MTU years. One of the bartenders, in those years was Pete Plutt….. my cousin. He has also since passed away.

So, it is a very small world………. enjoy your newsletter.

Joseph P. Feira

Joe: Any veteran of Paul's Bar (which my family owned) softball team has a special place in my memory! Thanks!

Modern day Google photo from alum Laurel Schneider.

Is the picture taken as if you were standing in the dominos [actually Little Caesar's] parking lot, near the stop sign looking down towards the bridge? I believe it would be the corner of West Montezuma Ave and Bridge St.

Thanks,
Dylan DuTemple

***

Dennis, Unless I am way off base this one was fairly easy. You are looking down Bridge Street at the old swing bridge across the Portage in the distance. At that time Bridge street continued straight down the hill to Shelden Ave. and on across the bridge. I'm not sure if the house on the corner had a particular identifier, but, the last time I was there it was still standing. Near the end of my tenure in Houghton I dated a girl from Hurontown, who later became my wife. I became rather familiar with Bridge Hill since I had no vehicle of my own and walked that hill many times. It would probably kill me to do so now.

David Elack '60

***

It appears that it is Bridge St. up a couple of blocks from Shelden Ave. It looks like the old bridge in the background.

Maybe others will recognize it.

Jerry MacInnes

***

Hi Dennis, To me the mystery shot looks like the brick house in the northeasterly quadrant of the intersection of East Montezuma and Bridge Street, kitty-corner to Little Caesars in Houghton, facing north.

Rob Sundstrom

***

DENNIS…I believe this is in Houghton looking north down Bridge St. / Hill from Montezuma St. in the days of the old swing bridge (in the background).

Roger Smith ‘68

Dennis, This photo was taken before the high lift bridge was built and is at the corner of Bridge Street and E. Montezuma Ave looking North towards Hancock. The Dairy Queen used to be at the bottom of the hill on the left of the bridge. When the bridge was built it was moved to College Ave.
A person used to really have to ride the snow bank with the right tires down the hill to Sheldon in the winter in order to be able to stop the car at the bottom. Since this intersection was straight up from the bridge it was horrible in the winter because you were going uphill at a steep angle. It always had a lot of traffic coming from Hancock and going to the upper reaches of Houghton or on to Dodgeville and places further out.

Speaking of snow and Winter Carnival. My girlfriend (now my wife) at the time came up for Winter Carnival from Lower Michigan one winter with a girlfriend of another Tech student.. The other girl had a Pontiac GTO with a stick shift. This poor woman was shocked by the amount of snow and couldn't drive that powerful car on the level let alone get up any hills. My wife, who was used to the snow and hills and had learned to drive in a stick shift car, had to drive her around until they found her date!

Mark Strang '69

***

Dennis, The house in question is (was?) on the Northeast corner of Bridge Street and Montezuma Avenue. The shot appears to be taken from the middle of that intersection. If you look carefully at the bottom of the hill you can see the South (Houghton) end of the old draw bridge that the current lift bridge replaced.

Steve Haas
MTU '74
HHS '69

Steve: It is still there.

Hey Dennis.....That building is still standing. Its on the hill (above the old bridge in the shot). Well, maybe I am wrong on it still standing as I look at Google Earth. It was on Montezuma Street if I am right....a one way these days heading back to Tech. I remember seeing the building every summer when I returned, but as I am viewing Google Earth it doesn't seems to be there now.....looks like an empty lot. I thought it was on Montezuma at Quincy or Bridge Street. Anyhow it was in that vicinity.

Terry Kaminski Hamka (1975)

***

Dennis, I believe that the picture you have is taken from the corner of Montezuma and Bridge St. One can see the original bridge in the background and the house is still there on the NE corner. I could be wrong, though.

John DePuydt '71

***

Dennis... I believe the latest mystery shot is a house at the corner of Montezuma and Bridge Street looking north toward Hancock. That house is, I believe, still there, although most of the ones behind it were removed in later years to make way for the renovations to the M26-US41-Sheldon Ave "interchange". Kind of looks like this was taken before the new bridge was built, so it must be a pretty old photo.


Thanks

The old winter shot in the TechAlum newsletter is on the corner old Montezuma & Bridge Street. If you are sitting at the stop sign on Bridge Street looking towards the bridge. The first house you see is still there & I believe the next house is gone. On the bottom is the old bridge which was directly below Bridge Street.

Nils Ruonavaara

Hi Dennis, The picture in your latest email was taken looking North ,down the hill, from the intersection of Montezuma and Bridge street. The photographer was standing on Bridge street by what is now Little Caesars Pizza on the Northwest corner of the street.

The house in the foreground, on the right, is still there. It was owned by the Archambeau family for many years, later by the guy who owned Turner Heating.

The old wooden Portage Lake draw bridge is in the background.

Paul Colombe, class of '74.

I've never been inside that house, but I lived in the house at the other end of that same block of Montezuma for a short time after graduating. Fast forward, we now live in Dollar Bay and are neighbors with a woman who grew up in that house, only it was in a different place. Apparently, after her parents passed away some time in the 1950s or 60s, someone moved it a block down Montezuma toward the bridge to make room for the hotel. It's a small world...

Dave Torrey

***

I think this week’s mystery shot is the house at the corner of Bridge and Montezuma in Houghton. You can just barely see the old rotating bridge in the background. Houghton has a lot of very cool old houses. Do you know the year the photo was taken?

Thank you,

Ken Williams class of ‘75

Ken: We never nailed down the date of the photo.

***

Isn't the last 'mystery spot' the house on Montezuma (still there) that is just up from the bridge and up from what is now the 'Backroom Bookstore'?

Hi Dennis! The mystery shot, looks like the corner of Montezuma Ave. and Bridge St.??

Bill Hall

The mystery shot in the Alum Newsletter looks like the old Portage narrow "swing" bridge" which was replaced by the existing "lift" bridge. I had on uncle that operated the bridge.

KD Statue of 1951

1951 KD statueHi Dennis, What a pleasant surprise when I opened the Feb. 8 issue of the Newsletter and see a picture of the KD snow statue of 1951.

How well I remember working on that statue. We did not have enough snow in the yard to build it - you might notice how tall it was. So as the City of Houghton cleared snow from the streets they dumped it in our front yard.

As I remember we won first place that year, not only on the volume of ice mixture but also the detail of the 4-man bobsled. Those were great days. Since our daughter works at Portage Health, she could show our two grandkids the picture of the statue. Enjoy your Newsletter.

Wendell Buckland, 1953

***

Dennis, 1. THANKS FOR USING MY KD ICE STATUE SHOT. By the way I agree with the comment that progress has destroyed the Sheldon Ave atmosphere.

2. I believe the photo was taken looking downhill at the old swing bridge from the corner of Bridge St. and Montezuma. My first room at Tech was on Montezuma just around the corner (and dated a girl that roomed in this building.

Cheers, and keep warm....
Les Reid, '51

Editor's Note: Thank you, Les, for the great images!

Thanks, etc.


Dennis, Many thanks for including me on the newsletter. I received the my first "issue" this morning and how appropriate, we are digging out of 15-20 inches of snow in NJ and NY! It certainly remains me of my days at Tech! (Business/Economics Major) 1982/83.

Cheers!

Curling 2005

curlingHi Dennis! Hope all is well! Bummed to have missed Winter Carnival this year. Had a great time attending last year with a bunch of friends gathering together from Detroit, Grand Rapids, Cincinnati and Madison.

The photo featured in the Carnival edition of "Fill In the Blanks" includes me, wearing the green jersey and yellow hat, representing Alpha Sigma Tau! I think the curler on the left is Rebecca (Steitz) LaFountain. Unfortunately, I cannot identify the sister on the right. If I remember correctly, this was only the first or second year that curling was an official Winter Carnival special event.

Thanks for the memories!

Fundraiser for an Alum

Hi Dennis, On February 28, 2010, my friends and I will attempt to raise $5000 or more during a spaghetti dinner benefiting a mother with cancer. Dr. Kathryn Quinlan-Schneider is fighting for her life, and a chance to raise her children. By supporting her, we are supporting her whole family.

Imagine hearing the wonderful news that your friend has received her long-awaited pregnancy, and she is having twins! Now, imagine her next breath is telling you she has a rare form of oral cancer.

This is exactly what Kathryn’s friends heard in June 2008. We were elated and devastated in the same moment. How could we encourage her when so many things could go wrong?

Dr. Kathryn Quinlan-Schneider is now an attending doctor at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Her twins have just turned a year old! And for now, her husband still has a job as a contract engineer. However, she is again undergoing chemotherapy after her oncologist found a mass of metastasized cancer cells in her lung. She is not certain that the tumor, which grew in her mouth and neck and around her carotid artery through her pregnancy, did not send metastasized cells to other parts of her body. She couldn’t even enjoy their first birthday party, so sick was she from a recent chemo treatment.

Attached is a flyer for an upcoming benefit dinner for our dear friend.

During all of her trials, Kathryn has remained strong-spirited, prayerful and forthcoming with her prognoses. We can only follow her example of strength and pray for another miracle.

Thank you so much for your time! Please visit our website for frequent updates!

Thanks,
Kim (Marggrander) O'Kane

Jon Davis

Dennis, Thanks for sending this. It was sad to learn of Jon Davis' passing. I was there during the time Jon opened the Library ( "65- '68) and recall getting the "cooks tour" of the place shortly after he opened and in the process of adding food to the venue. I got to know Jon when we were taking a class together at the then new Forestry building. We get to the UP occasionally but the last trip to visit the campus was in '95 along with camping and scuba diving at Copper Harbor. I don't do winters well any more ( live in Texas now) so unfortunately Winter Carnival is out of the question.

Best regards,
Rick Poulin '68
