Although I never worked directly with Peter, having left PUP in 1989 after 22 years when I was editor-in-chief to become director of Penn State University Press, I have watched him take the Press on a path not only to continued financial success and scholarly excellence but to even greater exposure in the wider world of culture and publishing in general. Though he is the first non-Princeton grad to hold the position of director, all of us Princetonians can be grateful that he has led the Press during his tenure so well, maintaining and building on its reputation as one of the premier scholarly publishers in the world.
