As we enter the summer vacation season, PAW offers a sampling from the University Library’s holdings of passports once owned by alumni and others with Princeton ties. Passports typically arrive as part of personal papers acquired by the Library, according to Don Skemer, curator of manuscripts in the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections. He estimates there are at least 400 old passports in the department; here are a few of his favorites in the manuscripts division.
