This is the first in a series of four special seventy-fifth anniversary revival issues of The Nugget News, which will serve as programs for the Seventy-fifth Anniversary Season. This first issue covers the events leading up to the opening of The Nugget in 1916, and follows its history through the decade of the twenties. Taken together, these four special issues will chronicle the entire seventy-five year history of The Nugget and the Hanover Improvement Society, related developments in the Town of Hanover, and, indirectly, some of the history and tradition of Dartmouth College. We hope you enjoy them.
