Princetoniana Committee

The Alumni Council formed the Princetoniana Committee shortly after the death of Frederick E. Fox '39 in 1981. In his final annual report as Keeper of Princetoniana, Fox wrote that his position had "particular responsibility for the legends, songs and symbols of the university." Fox added, "Someday, there will be another Keeper of Princetoniana. There has to be. As long as there is a Princeton, there will be proud keepers of it." In essence, that is the function of the Princetoniana Committee.

We work with the Archives to collect and track things and memories, and we seek to find opportunities to interact with alumni and the public to share the culture and traditions of Old Nassau. The members of the committee share a deep affection for Princeton, and the hope that keeping her traditions will sustain her alumni as individuals, and link Princetonians in a community of affection that bridges the generations.
