Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College, at Hanover, N.H.; coeducational; chartered 1769, opened 1770, the ninth colonial college (see Wheelock, Eleazar). Originally a men's college, Dartmouth began admitting women in 1972. The school is actually a small university and was so named for a short time in the 19th cent. (see Dartmouth College Case). It has a strong undergraduate liberal arts program and graduate schools of medicine (1797), engineering (1871), and business administration (1900).

See studies by R. F. Leavens and A. H. Lord (1965) and F. N. Stites (1972).
