Prominent (and often Unsung) Women in Princeton History
This spring Princeton University Press will publish The New Princeton Compendium, a book it describes as “the definitive single-volume compendium of all things Princeton.” The author is emeritus Vice President and Secretary Bob Durkee, who retired in 2019 after more than 47 years in the Princeton administration. Among other things, the book includes 404 encyclopedia-style entries, many of which recount the impact of women over the course of Princeton’s 276-year history. Some of the women are well-known, but many are not. Bob’s talk will highlight some names we probably know, and others that will probably be new to most of us.
