Among my uncle’s papers after he died was a copy of the graduation information of students who graduated from St. Thomas Seminary, Bloomfield, Connecticut in 1936 along with a halftone photograph which I have copied and attach to this post.
The Stella Matutina, Graduation Number, 1936.

Philip J. Hulton.
78 Grove St., New Milford, Conn.
“Zeus hates those who do too much.”
Editor-in-chief; Assistant Chant Director; Class Committeeman; English Address; Glee Club; Bowling Director.
After taking a gander at the above list of activities, maybe you won’t agree with us that Phil is one of the outstanding men of his class? His pet avocation is, of course, the Stella, - and a very efficient job he’s done on it. An enviously “facile” writer, Phil is also the possessor of a keen tenor voice which he has used to good advantage in Glee Club and Choir – not to mention his directing. He hails from the hamlet of New Milford but even that doesn’t decrease his popularity. Phil climaxed his literary career here at the Bishop’s Reception with that well-written and touching address on Father Damien.
