Under presidents Goheen, Bowen, Shapiro, and Tilghman, Princeton University has enjoyed 55 years of outstanding and farsighted leadership of the very highest quality. (I am not old enough to remember President Harold W. Dodds *14, and for all I know this remarkable streak may be nearing 80 years.) I can think of no other contemporary institution, country, corporation, or other entity that could say the same. If there are any such, I’d like to learn of them. In the meantime, I’m confident that the presidential search committee will be up to the task.
