History Of Dartmouth
Excerpt from A History of Dartmouth College, 1815 1909: Being the Second Volume of a History of Dartmouth College and the Town of Hanover, New Hampshire, Begun by Frederick Chase The first volume of the "History of Dartmouth College and the Town of Hanover," by Frederick Chase, appeared more than twenty years ago. The second volume, carrying on the history of the College but not of the Town, owes much to him.
The harbour town of Dartmouth has long attracted writers and artists, from Daniel Defoe and Turner to Robert Graves and Lucien Pissarro. This well-illustrated volume includes many examples of their work, while also recording the history of the port, whose sailors were among the first to explore the Atlantic and whose merchants established vital trade routes.
