Bartlett Tower Society
Those who name Dartmouth as a non-contingent beneficiary of their charitable gift planning receive special recognition as members of the Bartlett Tower Society. The Society was named in honor of Samuel Colcord Bartlett, Class of 1836, who served as the College's eighth president from 1877 to 1892. More than $700,000 was raised during his tenure through lifetime gifts and realized bequests. Bartlett Tower, located on Observatory Hill, was a grassroots project built by successive classes of undergraduates between 1885 and 1895.
