As a Princeton graduate, Class of 1973, who has been married to a coed, Class of 1975, for more than 40 years, I have often longed for the “old Princeton,” but like King Lear I have three daughters. I have often thought that I would be very upset if Princeton had not admitted women so that my daughters, who went to Princeton (Class of 2004) and the University of Chicago; to Carleton and Columbia; and to Johns Hopkins, would have been denied admission based on “their plumbing.” Perhaps as more Princeton men have daughters, there will be more emphasis on the benefits to women of going to a place like Princeton.
