For business entrepreneur Frank Sawyer, it was the boyhood dream come true
or as he noted, a climb "from the base of Beacon Hill to the top." For Suffolk
University, it was one of the notable days in the university's history thanks,
as President Daniel H. Perlman observed, to Frank Sav;ryer, "a generous benefactor
whose faith in this institution and whose deep understanding and appreciation
of its mission is a source of strength to all of us charged with fulfilling the
promise of Suffolk University."
Thus, on April 29, the university's Charter Day, the Frank Sawyer Building at
8 Ashburton Place was dedicated with more than 400 guests in attendance, including Gov. Edward J. King, State and City officials, members of the Board of
Trustees, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni and students .
Sawyer, at the behest of Board Chairman John S. Howe,
ceremonies, climaxed the program by strolling from the
Place to unveil the lettering "Frank Sawyer Building."

platform on Ashburton
Simultaneously, blue
stood and applauded .

Sawyer, in his acceptance address, noted that he was proud to "share my
material blessings with one of the great American institutions of learning,
namely Suffolk University." The founder of Checker Taxi Co. and co-chairman
of the board of Avis, Inc. was the largest single contributor to the university's successful Campaign for Excellence.
Directing his talk to the student body, Sawyer urged them to follow "three
simple rules" if they wish to enjoy successful careers: "hard work, honesty,
and emulation of successful people . "
"Young people of today have ample opportunity because from your generation
come the replacement of today's leaders in the arts, sciences, politics,
commerce , education, law and the religious," Sawyer said. But, he warned,
"These are the days of study and preparation where no blemish to personal
reputation should be permitted to occur that will leave a stain on one's
opportunity for tomorrow." He urged the young people to "broaden your horizons and take advantage of the opportunities and the potentials that exist . "

As Commencement draws near and the
academic year comes to a close, it is
natural to reflect on some of the
University's accomplishments since
The expansion and improvement of our
physical facilities has been almost
unprecedented in the 76-year history
of the University. Our move into, and
dedication of, the Frank Sawyer Building was not only a highlight of the
year, but a milestone in our history .
The University's second Prime 750 Computer, and related terminals and
"software," quickly became an essential component of instructional equipment . So thoroughly are our facilities
and computer being utilized that it's
hard to remember what we did before .
The year witnessed the successful
completion of our "Campaign for
Excellence" in which we raised $3.5
million . Funds came from alumni,
faculty , trustees, the corporate and
philanthropic community and friends
of the University. We received several
government grants: $250,000 under the
Developing Institutions programs, nine
graduate fellowships for women and
minority students in Public Management,
and a grant to conduct the CLEO program for disadvantaged students planning to enter Law School. The CLEO
program will be conducted at the University again this summer.
We strengthened the University's
faculty and administrative staff with
a number of significant appointments .
The faculty were involved in a wide
variety of professional activities and
completed a long list of publications,
as well as maintaining the highest
standard of teaching excellence .
The task forces appointed as part of
the self-study process, preparatory to
our visit from the New England Associa-

tion next fall, have c ompleted their
work and have submitted their reports .
A new core curriculum has been
approved for undergraduate students
in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences and a joint JD/MPA de gree prog ram approved in Law and Management .
A construction contract has been
signed and work has gotten underway for
new Biology and Com~uter Science laboratories, new Arts and Sciences faculty
offices and classrooms, a new lounge
for the University's faculty and another
for Law students, offices for the Law
Review and the Transnational Law Jou rnal ; and a new wing of the Law library.
This work, taking place in t he Archer
and Donahue Buildings, will be completed this summer.
We have commissioned our architects
to survey all of our building s and to
recommend what needs to be done over
the next five to ten years to keep
them in good repair and restore them
to the general level of quality of the
Sawyer Building.
The Long Range Planning Committee has
been re-established and a corrrrnittee
formed to implement a comprehensive
staff development program: the
"Higher Education Management Institute . "
Space precludes extending this list
of activities and accomplishments.
Suffice it to say that it has been a
banner year for Suffolk University . I
am grateful for your help in making
Suffolk University a model for excellent
and economical urban higher education.
I hope to see most of you at Commencement on Sunday, June 13 . Have a
pleasant summer.

DEDICATION (Continued from Page One)


Sawyer was joined on the platform by
his wife, Mildred F. Sawyer, for whom
the new four-level colleges' library
was named, and his daughter, Carol
Parks, who joined her father at the
microphone to conclude the address.
"God bless America, God bless Suffolk
University, God bless its faculty and
students, God bless us all," Sawyer
President Perlman pledged that no
building in American higher education
will be used more intensively or for
better cause, promising that the building "will be well and earnestly used by
students, faculty, borrowers of books
and tappers of keyboards from before
eight in the morning until after 11
each evening."

Frank and Mildred Sawyer await opening ofprogram.

Perlman said that the 12-story
building "gives this institution the
space it needs to serve students of all
backgrounds and all ages and to foster
academic excellence."
Gov. King paid tribute to the university in his remarks and praised Sawyer
for his generosity.
Judith M. Dumont, an MBA student representing the student body, said
Suffolk University "has quality and
class in every sense of the word . The
leaders listen and they care and they
are willing to make changes to adapt
to the times."

A look after the unveiling.

Following the dedication exercises,
a luncheon open to all of the Suffolk
community was held in the third floor
dining room, faculty dining room and
School of Management's Conference Room.
One of the touches that pleased
Sawyer most was the 8 by 4 foot ice
sculpture set up in the dining hall and
carrying the inscription "Sawyer
Building, Suffolk University" and the
school seal.
The dedication day marked the 45th
anniversary of Suffolk University

When I was asked to speak on this occasion I
found myself confronted with a dilemma. Not
having had a formal education I thought to myself what could I possibly say that would be
of interest to a group of highly intellectual
educators. I concluded that it would be an
exercise in futility.
I then decided that it would be more appropriate to address my remarks to the student
body of Suffolk and based on my experience to
offer some suggestions, recommendations and
guidelines that could serve as encouragement
and act as an inspiration to the student body
to launch a successful career.

DEDICATION REMARKS (Continued from Page Five)
Hard work needs no explanation. Honesty can
be defined in three ways: namely moral, intellectual and financial. A financially dishonest person will ultimately be discovered.
There are laws and penalties for violations
of these laws. There are no laws against
moral or intellectual dishonesty. This type
of dishonesty is a betrayal of confidence and
trust placed in an individual and is detectable only by the emotional sting that it inflicts when it is discovered. Word does get
around which will blight the career of the
most brilliant person. Emulation of successful people who have already found the formula
will bring its own reward. And always remember
that the key components for the success of any
endeavor is honesty and people and a strong
resolve not to yield to temptations that offer
a temporary expedient. You must have a sense
of human values, of human needs, of human aspirations and a respect for the dignity of the
individual. Your success will be dependent on
people whether they be employees, associates
or customers, in any field of endeavor you
choose . No man or woman can do it all by themselves.
Moral honesty impresses people with whom you
deal. You should surround yourself with
people who have a high sense of morality, integrity and credibility whether they be
associates or employees. This is of the utmost
importance. In any field of endeavor,dedicated
career people are the prime ingredient for
success. The true leader must motivate and
inspire the best people obtainable and then be
fair with him or her whether it be a small
office or a large corporation.
Young people of today have ample opportunity
because from your generation come the replacement of today's leaders in the arts, sciences,
politics, commerce, education, law and the
religious. These are the days of study and
preparation where no blemish to personal
reputation should be permitted to occur that
will leave a stain on one's opportunity for
tomorrow. It has been proven that the truths
set forth in this paper are as valid today a s
they were yesterday and will be in all your
tomorrows . They should be indelibly implanted
in your hearts and minds and never be forgotten. You must go forward with vigor and
determination in a competitive world, you must
broaden your horizons and take advantage of the
opportunities and the potentials that exist.
You must think positively because the only
things that you will accomplish are the goal s


and objectives you conceive in your own mind .
It gives me a warm and satisfying feeling to
know that a boyhood ambition has been realized.
I have figuratively climbed the hill of life
and literally climbed from the base of Beacon
Hill to the top. Many things have happened on
the way, some sad, some glad, with many temptations, some difficult to resist, but if not
resisted, you would hear the oft told remark,
"There but for the grace of God go I."
In conclusion let me remind you the future
belongs to your generation. It wi ll be in your
hands and under our free enterprise system
the opportunities still exist. My best advice
is to make the most of them . If you follow the
rules, your possibilities for success can be
Thank you.
