About the Student Army Training Corps
To meet military needs for skilled technicians in World War I, the U.S. War
Department organized eight week courses to be given on college campuses throughout
the country. The New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts was one
of the first to offer this training. A committee was appointed by President Hetzel
to take charge of what came to be known as the Student Army Training Corps
(S.A.T.C.). Dean Charles E. Hewitt was general chairman. Other assignments were, Dad
Henderson, food and lodging; Leon W. Hitchcock, electrician training; Eric T.
Huddleston, construction of new buildings; Edward L. Getchell, gas engines and auto
mechanics; Harold D. McBride, machinists and blacksmiths; and Lyman J. Batchelder,
