Princeton University celebrates one of the world's most prestigious schools and, in a real sense, the story of America itself. From its humble Colonial beginnings and pivotal role in the Revolution, Princeton rose to become an innovator in science and scholarship, a cradle of modern sports, and a leader in the arts and literature. The book's intriguing images and rich text chronicle times as challenging as the Civil War and Vietnam eras and events as memorable as the making of the award-winning movie A Beautiful Mind. Famous faculty and students from John Witherspoon to Woodrow Wilson, F. Scott Fitzgerald to Toni Morrison, and Jimmy Stewart to Brooke Shields feature prominently. Throughout, Princeton University celebrates the school's ever-changing face and ever-enduring traditions, revealing why few colleges are as deeply loved by their alumni and surrounding communities.
