The college was named for Lord Dartmouth, though he and the other trustees of the Indian school were opposed to its establishment, and the institutions therefore remained nominally separate till 1849.
In August, 1770, Wheelock removed to Hanover, which was then a wilderness, and, after directing the clearing of a few acres and the building of one or two log-cabins, was joined by his sons and pupils, who at first dwelt in booths of hemlock boughs and slept on beds of the same.
The prospects of the Indian school that was the germ of Dartmouth college were blighted by the Revolution, in which many tribes adhered to the mother country, yet the Oneidas were kept from doing so probably through its means, and many frontier settlements were thus saved from pillage and murder.
