About Us

The Princetoniana website is intended to be an evolving website, with a focus on many of the traditions and qualities that make Princeton University distinctive. The project emerged out of a collaboration of four University departments working with alumni volunteers from the Princetoniana Committee to create a dynamic website that will keep track of Princeton's history. Alumni and campus partners worked together to research and write selected articles and will continue to expand the content of the site.

Several major sources deserve acknowledgment: University Archives at Mudd Library; "A Princeton Companion" by Alexander Leitch (copyright 1978 by Princeton University Press); "Princeton University: The First 250 Years" by Don Oberdorfer (copyright 1995 by The Trustees of Princeton University); and "Princeton Campus Plan: The Next Ten Years and Beyond."
