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.
