I’m sad to hear that Bill Bowen *58 has passed away (posted Oct. 21 at PAW Online; see coverage in this issue starting on page 10). When I last saw him, in a dialogue with fellow former president Harold Shapiro *64 at the Princeton conference on Jewish life in April of this year, he was as energetic — and funny — as ever. As an undergraduate in the ’70s, I didn’t appreciate Bowen particularly, as he was clearly part of the Establishment. I’ve come to realize how much positive energy and change he brought to Princeton.
