Ad Astra Society

Founder: Charles Summerville Roller, Jr.
Deceased 16 March 1963

Of course, we all know that Ad Astra Per Aspera - the motto that appears over the front arch - means "To the stars through difficulties," or "To the stars through aspiration." Big Barracks was constructed in 1915 and the motto appears in pictures made in 1916. Major/Colonel/General Roller founded the Ad Astra Society in 1925. In the Ad Astra book where the names of every cadet and faculty member elected were kept, the Big Boy first wrote "Ad Astra Fraternity," then he scratched out the word "fraternity" and wrote "Society." He said he got the idea for having such an honor society on a troop ship coming back from World War I in 1918. Why he waited seven more years to start Ad Astra, no one knows. The first Recall seen about Ad Astra was in 1930. It says that "the oldest faculty members and any cadets who are still in school who were previously elected to Ad Astra will select the top ten cadets for membership each year." In most years before 1970, there were ten elected each year. After 1970, there were often just three or four elected. From time to time, long time faculty members were elected also - Colonel McCue, Colonel Deane, Colonel Hoover, Major Parkins, Colonel Savedge, Colonel McCrum, Major Fizer, Colonel Livick, Linda Livick (the first woman selected), Colonel Gardner, Colonel Kramer, Colonel Koogler, and others. Molly Canevet, longtime school nurse, is also an Ad Astra. The Ad Astra Society began having reunions every 10 years (1970, 1980, 1990).
