A look into the families of the greater Hanover community

(07/27/17 6:35pm)

Hanover, New Hampshire is home to 11,260 people, according to the 2010 census. Dartmouth students make up a good portion, with 20- to 24-year-olds occupying 25.5 percent of the population, according to the census. The next biggest percentages of the population, however, are 15- to 19-year-olds at 16.9 percent and 50- to 54-year-olds at 5.2 percent. In addition, 57.6 percent of the households in Hanover belong to families. In other words, Hanover families have a large stake in the Hanover experience. Living in a college town, they are inextricably linked to Dartmouth.

Dartmouth's ghost stories

(06/29/17 6:25pm)

Most people don’t think of Dartmouth College as a breeding ground for paranormal activity. And compared to other colleges, it isn’t. According to an article written in an issue of the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine in 2004 by Joseph A. Citro, who is occasionally referred to as “the Bard of the Bizarre,” Dartmouth has relatively tame ghost stories. A veritable expert on the subject as an author of several supernatural books including “Cursed in New England: Stories of Damned Yankees,” Citro would know. In his article “Ghosts? Not Here!” he writes of an invisible organist at Yale and Victorian phantoms at Harvard. His reasoning for classifying us less than haunted? “Dartmouth’s admission requirements for spectral scholars must be unusually rigorous,” he wrote. Indeed, on my mission to Rauner Library to research the topic, I came up with only a thin file labeled “ghost stories.” However, through my research, I have discovered a small archive of stories haunting enough to entertain us all around a campfire.
