Letter to the editor

To the editor,

In a recent article in The Chronicle of Higher Learning, former Marlboro College Trustee Dena S. Davis wrote in her article “When Your College Is Staring Death in the Face” that:

“We decided to merge with Emerson. The Music Festival bought the campus.”

This is not true.

The campus was purchased by Democracy Builders.

The sale of the campus to Democracy Builders, along with the turmoil that went along with the trustees decision to approve the sale, are all fully detailed in articles published in The Commons, The Brattleboro Reformer, The Berkeley Beacon, and other news outlets.

If you look at these articles, you will see why alumni were all upset about the end of Marlboro.

Furthermore, it was not a merger. Marlboro College has been shut down. There is no more Marlboro College.

Speaking for other alumni, we are disappointed that certain people continue to perpetuate a revisionist history of what has happened.
