From the Nominator
For this special issue to celebrate Dartmouth's 250th anniversary, we tore up our regular format and reinvented our magazine with a new architecture, template and design. Our small staff spent several years planning the issue. We gathered a faculty panel and had fun as they came up with the college's most influential alumni, which anchored the issue. We asked a Pulitzer-winning reporter to examine Dartmouth's next 50 years. We dug deep into the archives here at Dartmouth; little is digitized, so we played Woodward and Bernstein culling through boxes and boxes of old letters to the college and found some gems. We unearthed offbeat tidbits of history and presented them with our entertaining sensibility and in a special fold out section. We commissioned posters. And so much more.
