About Us

The fraternal brotherhood of Alpha Tau Gamma is the academic, service, and social fraternity of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Founded in 1919, ATG has provided Stockbridge men with an avenue for professional growth and development through a long-standing tradition of service to the University and local communities as well as providing an environment for students to excel in their respective studies. ATG has developed into a strong band of brothers through the hard work and determination of the alumni and active chapter.

James Underwood Crockett '35 Memorial Garden at the Leverett Saltonstall state office building at 100 Cambridge Street, Boston

In the spring of 1989, at the request of the Mass. Commissioner of Agriculture August Schumacher, Jr., ATG created a 3,000 square foot garden at the Leverett Saltonstall state office building at 100 Cambridge Street, Boston as a memorial to James Underwood Crockett ’35.  ATG, Inc. purchased or had alumni donate gravel, stone dust, 7,000 Boston pavers, 6 engraved granite benches a granite plaque, trees, shrubs, perennials, annual flowers, equipment and labor.  ATG Alumni and Active Chapter members worked together for twelve years to plant annual flowers and maintain this urban oasis to 2001 when luxury condos were built on the site.
