Dartmouth Athletics Blog

Bill Wellstead ’63 has started a must-read blog in response to Dean of Admissions Karl Furstenberg’s admission that he seeks to derail Dartmouth sports teams. His Dartmouth Athletics site

will post letters and articles concerning the current crisis in the Dartmouth College Administration brought on by the revelation of a letter Karl Furstenberg, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid at Dartmouth, wrote on Dartmouth stationery four years ago concerning his negative feelings about football at Dartmouth and other sports in general.

Mr. Wellstead includes various damning articles about the future of Indian sports from the Valley News and the Harvard Crimson and, perhaps more importantly, correspondence from alumni and even professors condemning Furstenberg’s letter.

The Furstenberg kerfuffle has already drawn attention from the Associated Press and larger regional newspapers, including The Boston Globe and the Manchester Union Leader. The College has mounted a typically poor defense of his comments.
