Alumni Memorial Book Fund (PDF)

For more than 70 years, classes of Dartmouth alumni have honored deceased classmates through this special book purchasing program. The Library carefully selects the memorial volumes and creates a special bookplate bearing the name of the classmate being memorialized. Since its inception, over 55 classes have participated, and over 12,800 books have been added to the library collection.
