Dartmouth College Public Service Legacy: Perkins Bass, Class of 1934

This article is part of a series of articles honoring Dartmouth Alumni who have served in public office and demonstrated their commitment to the ideals of public service, leadership, and civic engagement.

The first time I encountered the Perkins Bass name was in the library, on a poster advertising an event featuring Kelly Ayotte, a former Senator and attorney general for New Hampshire. I didn’t think much of it until I started doing research for the Public Service Legacy Project a few months later, when the pieces of the Bass story of public service began to click together.
