Young Men's Christian Association of Dartmouth College
The Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) of Dartmouth grew out of the Christian Fraternity, which had also been called the Theological Society, The Society of Inquiry, and the Theological and Missionary Society. The Christian Fraternity became the YMCA of Dartmouth after an 1882 letter from L.D. Wishard, an international representative of the YMCA, compelled them to do so. Delegations had been sent to prior YMCA conventions, and the superior organization and diligence of the national group persuaded them to adopt its constitution. The Association later changed its name to the Dartmouth Christian Association.
