In Response to: Not your mother’s Princeton [6]

PAW’s article, “Not your mother’s Princeton,” erroneously states that Linda Brantley Bell Blackburn ’71 “entered the first graduating class of Princeton women.” That distinction did not belong to our class, but to the Class of 1970, since some of the women who had been critical-language students in 1968–69 stayed at Princeton for their senior year and graduated in 1970 as Princeton students on the basis of having spent two of their undergraduate years at Princeton. 

Editor’s note: According to Christie S. Peterson, project archivist with the University Archives, the nine women who are members of the Class of 1970 (Judith Ann Christine Corrente, Susan Mary Craig, Sue Jean Lee, Lynn Tsugie Nagasuco, Melanie Ann Pytlowany, Agneta Riber, Mae W. Wong, Mary Peggy Yee, and Priscilla Read) attended Princeton prior to their senior year as part of the ­critical-language program. They matriculated as Princeton students as seniors.
