Using the Class of 1966 Earth Map
Use the Google Earth map created by your Executive Committee to display where we all have wandered to from Hanover, so many years ago.
We update the data file periodically, but little changes from year to year. Sadly, a few pins have to be pulled from time to time, all the more reason to connect with each other now.
We all have something important in common. We all had matriculation papers signed by
College president John Sloan Dickey in the Tower Room of Baker Library on September 22, 1962. We became the 'stuff' of an enduring institution.
Not all living '66 Classmates are represented on the Class of 1966 Earth Map; some had PO Box numbers, some were in places that Google could not identify, a few have become lost to us.
Some addresses may be out-of-date. Maybe you will find them. Good luck. Let us know if you need help making contact.
More about the Google Earth Map
The Class of 1966 Google earth map (66NightEarth2011.kmz) is a file that works in conjunction with Google Earth. First,
download the latest version of the Google Earth application.
Once you have installed Google Earth on your computer, you should then download the 66NightEarth2011.kmz file.
(You will be requested to answer a simple login question about the last name of the man who was the College president when you matriculated in 1962.)
When you have completed downloading the file, double-click on the 66NightEarth2011.kmz file icon. It will open the Google Earth application and create
a globe with pushpins showing the locations of the members of our class. (If double-clicking does not work on your computer, try dragging the KMZ icon to the icon of the Google Earth application. If that is not successful, please call Chuck Sherman at 802-765-9630.)
It may take a few minutes for Google Earth to create and populate the globe. When it has finished, zoom into the pin that represents you, then slowly zoom out and
notice which other pushpins come into view. Click on the pins, and you will find the address, phone, and e-mail (if we have them)
for Classmates who are near you. If you live in a metropolitan area, zoom in close to make sure you are seeing all Classmates in your area.
Use this information to contact and renew friendships with your classmates.
Having our own Class Google Map is really amazing and it's a lot of fun just to play with the map,
but it's even more fun to connect with someone who you knew at Dartmouth, especially if you haven't
seen them in 45 years, or with classmates you have gotten to know since our time together in Hanover.
This is also a great time to promote our fall Class Reunion, our 45th, scheduled for October 14-17, 2011.
