  • Staff Only


The papers of “The Tribunal” contain correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs, and a last will and testament of “The Tribunal," an organization created by five members of the Dartmouth College classes of 1919 (John McCrillis, Harold Nichols, and H. Marshall Chadwell) and 1920 (Kenneth Spalding and Norman Richardson). The material documents how the men (and their families) in “The Tribunal” maintained communications with each other from the years 1919 until 1975, mainly by means of a system of round-robin letters. The letters are contained within twelve books (binders) and are arranged chronologically. "The Tribunal’s” last surviving senior member, Hilda Luce Spalding (widow of Kenneth Spaulding), died in 1999 at the age of 101.
