  • Choices Made.

    Trustee Thomas W. Braden later wrote: "So here we are... sitting around a long polished table in the trustees' room, trying to decide whether to admit women to Dartmouth, and hold classes the year around, partly so as to make room for the women. Now there was no very good reason for not doing this, except the reason that it would change things. But you would have thought to hear us talk that we were about to bulldoze the place....” [p.9] President David T. McLaughlin discussing coeducation in his 2007, Choices Made: a Memoir.

  • [Forrester Ashe Lee quote from Mary Donin's March 2013 interview]

    The urgency, the immediacy, the importance of what needed to be done was sensed here, and things were done and changed very, very dramatically. And it became, you know, a bit of a model for what should be done everywhere. The New York Times had this article: DARTMOUTH ADMITS 100 BLACK STUDENTS, and the most ever in the Ivies, something like the most ever in the Ivies. It happened in 1972 I think. It really did become a model for what is possible. And, you know, I carried that with me for the rest of my life, that—what a few guys can do.

    More than any historical datum, any statistical result, any interpretation of a text, we need to convey to our students a sense of joy in learning-joy in participating in the life of the mind; joy in achieving competence and mastery; joy in entering the adult world of obligations, intimacies, and relationships; joy in experiencing the diversity of our community; joy in engaging in the converse among our several generations. Freedman, James O. 1987. A Commonwealth of Liberal Learning : Inaugural Address of James O. Freedman Delivered at His Installation as Fifteenth President of Dartmouth College.
