"Great reunion!

In our panel discussion about Enriching the Years Ahead, I used some images including the one attached. This image helped start me on the path to becoming a historian. It is a painting of Richard Hovey, who wrote Dartmouth’s alma mater. He spent time with his friend the artist (Thomas Buford Meteyard) here in Scituate near where I live. The painting is now owned by Dartmouth College.

Foley House Table at Reunion

Here is a note from a happy participant at the Foley House Table at dinner on Baker Lawn, slightly edited for public consumption...

 

Recognition, welcome but long overdue

A note from Arthur Fergenson:

Valedictory to the Graduating Students by President Philip J. Hanlon ’77, June 09, 2019:

“Not long after [the opening of the Hop in 1962], the Dartmouth theater department served as the earliest pathway for women on this campus, some of whom are seated amongst you today as proudly adopted members of the Class of 1969.”

The adoptees rose and cheered.  I sat next to them and cheered, and could not hold back the tears.  I didn’t want to.

The Parkhurst Problem (comment from Randy Dominic)

Randy Dominic notes that he enjoyed the 50th Reunion but asked that the following be shared with our Class:

I was profoundly disappointed that the one event from our college days deemed worthy of remembering was when some of us decided to exercise their First Amendment rights by denying them to the rest of us.  Did we learn nothing in our four years at Dartmouth?
