In the interest of accuracy, your interview with Nancy Malkiel should be supplemented with the information that women began being admitted to the Graduate School under Dean Donald Hamilton in 1961.

One of my own first Ph.D. students in German was Maria Tatar *71, and one of our closest friends was Nina Berberova, the distinguished Russian writer, who came from Yale to Princeton in 1963 and taught in Slavics until her retirement in 1971.

As has often been the case in Princeton’s history (e.g., admission of minorities and foreign students), the Graduate School anticipated developments in the College.
