Founded in 1905 by Ernest Martin Hopkins, DAM is published six times a year and mailed to more than 50,000 undergraduate alums of the College. From the magazine’s charter:
The Magazine’s purpose is to serve principally the entire Dartmouth Family including the Professional Schools and its other graduate programs. The goal is an informed and engaged alumni body. Therefore, the Magazine reports the news of the College and its alumni, provides a medium for the exchange of views concerning College and alumni affairs, and in other ways provides editorial content that relates to the shared and diverse experiences and interests of Dartmouth alumni.
The Masthead shall read: “Dartmouth Alumni Magazine is owned and published by Dartmouth College and is produced in cooperation with the Dartmouth Class Secretaries Association. The purposes of the Magazine are to report news of the College and its alumni, provide a medium for the exchange of views concerning College affairs, and in other ways provide editorial content that relates to the shared and diverse experiences and interests of Dartmouth alumni. This publication is guided by Dartmouth’s principles of freedom of expression and accepted standards of good taste. Opinions expressed are those of the signed contributors or the editors and do not necessarily represent the official position of Dartmouth College.”
