In Response to: ‘A Fantastic Time’

At Princeton’s 250th Anniversary Convocation, Toni Morrison’s address suggested to me there was a difference between the place of ideas and the place itself, which is certainly orange and black. Clothing fashion seems focused on place.

My father, Leo Jiranek, was a member of Princeton’s Class of 1922. Dad was the reunion chairman for his 25th class reunion. This was the first on-campus reunion; it was held in Holder Courtyard before Holder became Rockefeller College.

Costumes worn in Holder Court then were more muted than they are in 2023. 

What has changed?
