Re: Spooky

Are we sure Captain Kangaroo was a Dartmouth alum? Dartmouth’s Robert Keeshan was a class of ’42 according to the DND, which would mean the Robert Keeshan who was Captain Kangaroo, born in 1927, either attended as a teenager and was set to graduate by the time he was 15, or they are two different people entirely.

Update: A reader has informed me that he received an honorary degree from Dartmouth, but only attended Fordham after going into the armed forces near the tail-end of WWII.
