In Memoriam

This page memorializes our classmates who have passed away. The 1985 Memorial Fund  was established as a way for our class to acknowledge the passing of one of our classmates or a close family member.

They were mighty ones of old
That she nurtured at her side;
Till like Vikings they went forth
From the lone and silent North,
And they strove, and they wrought, and they died;
But the sons of old Dartmouth,
The daughters of Dartmouth,
The Mother keeps them in her heart
And guides their altar flame;
The still North remembers them,
The hill-winds know their name,
And the granite of New Hampshire
Keeps the record of their fame;
And the granite of New Hampshire
Keeps the record of their fame.*

*The second verse of Richard Hovey ’85’s (1885) poem, traditionally sung as part of the Alma Mater only in times of war or memorial services.
