A Message from the President, 1948


In a pamphlet distributed to prospective fraternity pledges in 1948, President Dickey stated his personal opinion on the fraternity discrimination issue: "This college neither teaches nor practices religious or racial prejudice and I do not believe that it can for long permit certain national fraternities through their charter provisions or national policies to impose prejudice on Dartmouth men in the free selection of their fraternal associates."
