Landmark College Archives
Honoring Landmark College’s unique history in working with those who learn differently
Welcome to the digital component of the Robert H. Rhodes Landmark College Archives!
We hope that this collection of resources will serve as an overview to the founding and development of the first college in the country to be founded exclusively for students with dyslexia, and later, other learning differences including ADHD and ASD.
Please explore this digital introduction to Landmark College's earliest days through a variety of resources that document the history of the College, including: news clippings, photographs, video, audio and other material.
Site Content Sources
Information contained on this site has come from several different sources and is used with permission, including the following:
- Articles in Links, the Landmark College newsletter
- Excerpts from Landmark College: A Short History of the First Twenty-Five Years
- Photographs from the College Archives
- Newspaper clippings from the Brattleboro Reformer and links to historical online articles
It would not have been possible to create this site without the assistance of many people who shared their memories and gave so generously of their time. Each and every person contributes his or her own vision, talents and gifts to this community, and while this digital version of the Archives tries to show a view of the College since its founding, it could never do justice to the students, faculty and staff that have made Landmark College what it is today.
Special thanks to founding faculty member, Dan Toomey, whose eloquence is evident throughout this site in the excerpts taken from Landmark College: A Short History of the First Twenty-Five Years.
