The Princeton Portrait about George Strawbridge 1802 (March issue) mischaracterized the timing of his break with Princeton, which came after the College affirmed its support for abolitionism in the years leading up to the Civil War. 

In a passage from his memoir, Strawbridge noted that a large number of Princeton graduates were from the South. “One effect of the spirit of abolitionism has been to destroy this connection in a considerable degree, probably altogether,” he wrote. “I scarcely think my name will appear there in another generation, although I still cherish a love for these old institutions, especially the Whig society.”
