Series 5, Princeton Borough, contains information on structures not located
on the Princeton University campus itself, but which are closely related to
the history of the school. Some of the buildings were used as professors'
houses, and others in this section were owned by notable townspeople with
connections to the University. In some cases, the property owned but not
used by the University is represented. In the case of off-campus faculty
housing, the line between Town and Gown becomes blurred. The series also
contains numerous insurance surveys from the late 1940s and early 1950s. The
Princeton Borough Historical Subjects files should be used in conjunction
with the Grounds and Buildings files.
Series 5 is arranged alphabetically by building or location.
