Veterans Memorials Dedication
Ceremony to dedicate the veterans memorials at the renovated Memorial Field. Remarks by President Emeritus James Wright.
The first plaque in the new Memorial Field (1923) was placed by alumni veterans of the civil war as a tribute to alumni who served in WWI. The other 11 plaques have been relocated to Memorial Field from around campus, and were created by alumni as a memorial to alumni who served in all the following wars and conflicts. A new memorial sculpture was conceived as a tribute to all Dartmouth men and women who have served their country in war and peace and has been placed in the renovated Memorial Field by alumni members of Sphinx and contributing classes.
