Save the Date - Our 55th Reunion

Our 55th Reunion will be held in Hanover on June 11-14, 2018 with a 2 day extension till the 16th at the Lake Morey Resort, a beautiful lake side venue just 19 miles up the road from Hanover. Given the success of our 50th Reunion and its extension, and the on-going activity of mini-reunions including our recent one in Santa Fe where we had close to 100 attendees, we should have a great turnout. We are now 13 months out, and planning activities are in full swing.

We are very excited about the activities and entertainment we are lining up. We have booked a Motown band with 5 singers for our big party; and our very talented Paul Binder has agreed to put together a Cabaret for one evening’s entertainment. Featured speakers will include our own Gordy Weir and his wife Susan, speaking about the newest stem cell research on diabetes; and Dr. Sam Smith ’58, who will speak on the topic of “Sex and Aging.” We will, of course, meet with President Hanlon and get a tour of the College with all of its new buildings. Petie Subin and Claire Cabot will be planning a special program for women that should be interesting and challenging.

The Hanover Inn set aside a block 25 rooms for us. As of this morning (July 3rd) there were only 2 rooms left, so if you want one, act now. Call 800/443-7024 now if you want to make a reservation at the Inn.

The Element Hanover Lebanon, located in Lebanon just minutes from the College, is holding 30 rooms for us for June 11, 12 and 13th, 2018.  These rooms will be held till 5/14/2018. Their complimentary shuttle service can transport you to and from the College, so you can park your car and leave it. The nightly rate is $199 plus 9% tax.  Call 603/448-5000 to make reservation.

We have also arranged to have the Lyme Inn hold all of its rooms (9 classics, 2 junior suites and 3 senior suites) for June 11, 12 and 13th, 2018 till April 15, 2018. The room rate:are $229.00 for a Classic Room, $265.00 for a Junior Suite and $320.00 for a Senior Suite . All rates include breakfast, free Wi-Fi, free parking and free long distance phone calls.
Call 603/195-4824 to make your reservation. Please mention Dartmouth 1963.

We will be lining up additional housing at local motels and, of course, you can always stay in a dorm. You will hear more about this in future correspondence.

The cost for the reunion should be at or under $525 per person, with a $50 early bird discount. The extension will cost another $300 per person. We plan to open early registration shortly, and will let you know when that happens by email. The College will start taking reservations for dorm housing in the early spring of 2018.

We have come up with a theme – “How lucky can you get?” We pray that all of us will be lucky enough to attend. I hope you will plan to join us

97 Classmates and Spouses gathered for our 75th Birthday Bash in Santa Fe

Assuming we were all born in 1941, we will all be turning 75 sometime during the year. What could be better than a big ’63 birthday party in beautiful Santa Fe, NM to celebrate, at least that’s what 97 of your Classmates and their spouses thought.  DartTravel Committee arranged a gathering of '63s at the beautiful Hotel Santa Fe and Hacienda Resort, Santa Fe’s only Native American owned hotel, located in historic Santa Fe.
 The long weekends was filled with cocktail parties, dinners, tours of Santa Fe, including the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, an extravagant welcome party thrown by Steve Lister, bus tours to Taos and the Indian ruins at Puye Cliffs, all climaxing with a Monday night Cowboy BBQ and a Tuesday morning farewell brunch.  And most important, the warm and welcoming fellowship of old friends getting together to enjoy each others company.

 Great New Video on the Development of BASIC narrated by Tom Kurtz

  On the 50th anniversary of the development of BASIC, Dartmouth has produced an amazing 38 minute video on the development of BASIC and the Dartmouth Time Sharing System narrated by Tom Kurtz, co-developer of BASIC with John Kemeny.  This historical video document includes interviews from the then students ('63s, '64s and '65s) who were involved in the project.  To view the video, click here.


The Documentary "Passion for Snow" premiered at Dartmouth in February 2013.


        Based on the book Passion for Skiing (2010), the story begins with the first Dartmouth Winter Carnival and traces 100-plus years of ski history through the present day. The documentary explains how the college and many of its alumni have contributed to virtually every aspect of the formation and continuing developments in today’s $25 billion snow sports industry.  To view the film, click here.                     


 And in the video below students describe their happiest moments at Dartmouth.
