Series 11: James McCosh Records, 1747-1995

10 boxes
SOME ONLINE CONTENT
James McCosh was the first president since John Witherspoon who was not an alumnus of the College of New Jersey. Many similarities have been noted between the two men. Both were born in Scotland and graduated from the University of Edinburgh. Witherspoon was inaugurated in 1768, and McCosh was inaugurated one hundred years later in 1868. They died one hundred years apart, almost to the day, and like all presidents until Woodrow Wilson, both were ministers.

The University Librarian series contains the records of the various individuals who have held the position and provide an overview of the Library's historical development from the vantage point of one of the few roles that have remained relatively static throughout the Library's entire existence. As the chief administrator of the Library, the University Librarian is involved to some extent in nearly every aspect of the institution's planning and evolution. This is especially true in the earlier years of the Library when activities later undertaken by separate departments were somewhat more centralized around the Librarian. Such diversity of purpose is represented in the University Librarian records themselves, which primarily contain correspondence, subject files, and other documentation relating to topics as varied as collection development, finances, fundraising, organizational and staff matters, and university policy. Please see subseries descriptions for further information regarding the individual subseries.

The Princeton University Presidents' Records document the lives and accomplishments of each president with varying completeness, as well as the functions of their office.

The demonstrations series documents the protests, strikes, and riots coordinated by or chiefly involving members of the Princeton University community (sometimes only students, but often including faculty and staff as well). Many early demonstrations, such as the 1800 riot, were the result of student unhappiness over the rules of an intransigent administration, such as the "unreasonable" mandatory daily 6am chapel services, which were extremely cold in the winter. Not all protests, however, involved significant internal dissention. In 1970, students, faculty, and administration largely came together to declare a strike against President Richard Nixon's expansion of the Vietnam War into Cambodia.
