Commencement 2015

Where, oh where are the Grand Old Seniors?
Safe at last in the wide, wide world.

Dartmouth Class of 2015.jpg

The new alumni are safe in part thanks to the College’s newly commissioned 2nd lieutenants: Jonathan Griffith ‘15 (Army); Joshua Rivers ‘15 (Army); Monica Wagdalt ‘15 (Army); Joseph Carey ‘15 (Marine Corps); and Zachary Queen ‘15 (Marine Corps):

Addendum: With special thanks to the Class of 2015’s members of Dartblog’s Baker Tower Irregulars, who helped out in so many ways.

Addendum: Here is the College’s report and the Valley News story on the weekend’s events.

Addendum: 2nd Lieutenant Joseph Carey ‘15 is the son of Government Professors John Carey and Lisa Baldez. Can anyone recall a Dartmouth professor with a child in the military?

Addendum: One of Dartblog’s ever vigilant readers notes that Jamie Ermarth ‘04 gradated with an Army ROTC Commission. His father is recently retired History Professor Michael Ermarth, and his stepmother is English Professor Barbara Will.

Addendum: Another alumnus writes in:

Surely there are many others, if one goes back far enough. We always knew about and celebrated Stanley Proctor Wright ‘42, son of Philosophy Professor William Kelley Wright, but we never thought of him as being that unusual. He was 2nd Lieutenant USMC, killed at Bougainville on November 13, 1943.

    When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
    We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

    How Regents Should Reign
    As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
