In the excellent article on “The Class of ’62 and the Princeton they knew” (Alumni Scene, Nov. 14), there is a misstatement of fact that deserves to be corrected. Bruce Dunning ’62 said, “We did unusual things, like inviting professors to meals. That had never been done. The clubs started doing that later.”
Mr. Dunning is a decade off in his chronology. Princeton Prospect Cooperative Club had a very successful program of having professors dine with us in the early ’50s. I remember many scintillating conversations with Professor Paul Ramsey (my thesis adviser) over lunch at Prospect. This was a very important and meaningful part of the Prospect experience.
