Materials generated by the office of the president are closed for 40 years from the date of their creation. Some records relating to personnel or students are closed for longer periods of time.
Subseries 13B: Correspondence, 1896-1923 [bulk: 1902-1910], is arranged topically and is composed of academic and administrative correspondence, principally from Wilson's time as Princeton University's president. It contains information about many aspects of university life, such as courses, departments, grounds and buildings, faculty, trustees, student discipline, and the conferral of honorary degrees, as well as Wilson's quadrangle and preceptorial plans. The contentious issue of the location of the graduate college is also amply represented. Even football receives attention, reflecting Wilson's concern "that the game as at present played is unnecessarily dangerous and contains an unnecessary number of temptations to brutality."
