Senator Paul Tsongas '62 Heading Home from Washington

Right after the 1984 Presidential election, Paul Tsongas '62, the junior senator from Massachusetts, returned to Dartmouth to teach several classes and to deliver a public speech. It was an extraordinarily beautiful day in Hanover, particularly for early November warm, sunny, much more like early than late fall. It was also a Friday. But Tsongas sold out Spaulding Auditorium for his 1 pm address. He was relaxed, witty, and, as noted below, very candid in his assessment of what's wrong with the Democratic Party today and where its future lies. He was equally candid about his retirement from the political arena and his bout with cancer.
