I applaud the decision to rename the Wilson School and I write this as a member of the family and house that published Wilson in his lifetime, and as a tyro publisher four decades ago who commissioned the (very sympathetic) biography of Woodrow Wilson by August Heckscher, which we published 30 years ago and which many rightly consider still the finest biography of that great (if flawed) man. Renaming the Wilson School the “Princeton School” is an elegant and brilliant solution to the controversy since Princeton is a platinum name that eclipses all individuals. (I guess Harvard had the same idea for its medical, business, and law schools?)
