Dartmouth is the ninth-oldest institution of higher education in the United States. It was founded in 1769 by the Reverend Eleazar Wheelock, a Congregational minister from Connecticut who had earlier established Moor's Charity School in Lebanon, Connecticut, principally for the education of Native Americans. In seeking to expand his school into a college, Wheelock relocated to Hanover in the Royal Province of New Hampshire. There John Wentworth, the Royal Governor of New Hampshire, provided the land upon which Dartmouth would be built and on December 13, 1769, conveyed the charter from King George III establishing the college. That charter created a College “for the education and instruction of Youth of the Indian Tribes in this Land ... and also of English Youth and any others.”
