Discover Dartmouth College and the Ivy League TraditionWhen Daniel Webster stood before the Supreme Court, one of America's most famous orators spoke on behalf of his New Hampshire alma mater. He summed up Dartmouth College by saying,"It is a small college and yet, there are those who love it!"
Daniel Webster's beaver hat sits among the historic artifacts in the Rauner Special Collections Library at Dartmouth. Housed in Baker Library, this artifact coincides with the National Historic Landmark Orozco murals of Western Civilization. The first cartoons by Dartmouth alumnus Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) can be found here in tribute to the man for whom the college's medical school is named.
