After the commencement calendar, the pamphlet lists graduating students, the honorary degree recipients, and the lyrics to “God Save America” and “A Song for Springfield.” Dean Thornton W. Merriam, Ph. D., presided over the ceremonies. Reverend John Homer Miller gave the invocation and Leonard W. Mayo gave the commencement address, titled “Science, Religion, and the Community.” Springfield College President Paul M. Limbert, Ph. D., LL. D., conferred the degrees. Reverend Frank E. Dunn, S. T. B., gave the benediction.
