Kenneth B. Adrian '65*
Title: Class of 1999

Ken Adrian, you are one of the most accomplished golfers in WPI history. In fact, you were a "scratch" golfer in what is often considered a golden era of golf, the 1960s. A four-year letter winner, you led the Engineers golf teams to an amazing overall dual-match record of 38 wins and 2 losses during the spans of 1962 to 1965. as an individual, you competed in the Small College Division national tournament in Missouri in 1963, a year that saw you lead your team to a perfect 11-0 record. A sophomore that year, you also helped the team earn a second-place finish at New Englands, while winning the tourney yourself as an individual. In fact, you were responsible for the best score in 15 years of the NEIGA tourney.

By the end of the 1963 season, WPI had won 22 consecutive matches under head coach Roy Seaberg. But perfection was not an unusual description for the WPI golf teams of that era; 1963 was one of three unbeaten seasons for the Engineers during your tenure:10-0 in 1962, 11-0 in 1963, and 9-0 in 1965. In 1964, the Engineers ended the season at 8-2, but despite those losses, the team went on to place third in the New Englands (the 1965 squad finished third in that competition.)

You became a leader at a young age. You were named captain as a sophomore, a distinction you kept for two more years. On campus, you were a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. You are currently a senior consultant for AG Consulting in San Francisco.

Ken Adrian, for the glory and leadership you brought to your sport of golf at WPI, it is a great privilege to welcome you into the WPI Athletic Hall of Fame.
