Frank Bauer to Receive Degree Colby Man Graduates From Stanford June 18 (1950) COLBY- Mr. and Mrs. William A. Bauer are vacationing in California, where they will witness the graduation of their son Frank J. Bauer, from Stanford University at Palo Alto.
He is among the students in the upper 15 per cent of his class at Stanford University who will graduate on Sunday, June 18. In recognition of his high scholastic record, he will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Arts with "distinction."
Bauer completed all of the work necessary for the degree in December, 1949, but the degree will be awarded at the annual convocation June 18. He majored in psychology and since January he has been in the graduate school of Stanford University working on his master’s degree.
Bauer is well known in Clark County where he worked as a teacher for nine years after completing two years of school at Central State Teachers College at Stevens Point. For three years he served as president of the Clark County Education Association.
For four years during the war he served as a weather forecaster in the U. S. Army Air Forces. He also worked as an insurance salesman in Clark and Marathon Counties before entering Stanford University.
After the commencement exercises he will accompany his parents as far as Seattle, Washington where they will visit relatives and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Bauer will then continue on to Milwaukee where they will visit relatives before returning to Colby. Frank Bauer will return to Stanford University to register for the summer session on June 28.
