Dartmouth College Receives the Papers of Donella Meadows

Dartmouth College announced that the papers of Donnella Meadows will be donated to the university. Meadows, who taught at Dartmouth from 1972 until her death in 2001, was a leading environmental scientist who established the Sustainability Institute in 1996. She resigned from a full-time teaching role in 1983 to devote more time to the sustainability movement but continued to teach environmental journalism and environmental ethics as an adjunct professor.

Meadows was the author of The Limits to Growth, a 1972 book that sold more than 9 million copies in 28 languages. Two decades later she published a follow-up to her earlier work, entitled Beyond the Limits.

The Donella Meadows Archive contains personal papers, journals, and materials relating to her research and teaching. The archive will be housed in Dartmouth’s Rauner Special Collections Library.
