Artist Alicia J. Stonebreaker, Polish born and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts, Poznan, Poland and the Kassel Art Academy in Germany, sketched this momentous scene of the 1974 Norwich University graduation ceremonies. Alicia was sitting in the crowd with her husband, Vermont District Court Judge John P. Connarn (Norwich '41). Of course, she also brought her sketch pad and pencil. Alicia’s oldest son, William, was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the Norwich class of 1974 during this ceremony. On that day, graduates were presented with their diplomas by the respected Loring Edward Hart, President of Norwich University from 1972 to 1982.
Norwich University is one of the most unique and respected colleges in the United Stares. Norwich was the first private college in the nation to offer engineering instruction, the first private military academy in the nation, and the birthplace of ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps).
