We graduate alumni are quite used to second-class status, even though our accomplishments are more than first class compared to the wretched undergraduates which Princeton now tries to educate with diminishing results on behalf of diversity. Of course it all goes back to West and Wilson. May I say, most of our problems in fact go back to Wilson. George Kennan in the late 1950s once spoke at the Woodrow Wilson School and began with an attack on Wilson; that made me a fan of Kennan forever! I have recently reread the psychological study Bullitt and Freud did on Wilson: Despite critics, it still reads pretty convincingly.
