Biographical / Historical

From Middlebury College's founding in 1800, fundraising was the responsibility of the President and Fellows of Middelbury College.

The Development Program (later the Office of Development (1956-1994)), began in 1955 as the Committee of the Development Program, a trustee committee chaired by trustee Edwin S.S. Sunderland. At that time President Samuel S. Stratton recommended that the board create a full-time administrative position for fundraising, to meet the college's increasing fianacial needs. By March 1956, Middlebury hired Walter E. Brooker '39, as Director of the Development Program. He would later become Vice President of Development.
