A bit of trivia relating to the list of 25 most influential alumni is that No. 7 Eric Lander ’78 was a resident adviser in the third entryway of Foulke Hall during the ’77–’78 school year, and one of the students in his group was Elena Kagan ’81, future associate justice of the Supreme Court and No. 3 on the list. I was in the same RA group, and it was a great and humbling experience. Perhaps there are similar connections among the Princetonians on this list.
