The Office of the President Records: Christopher L. Eisgruber Subgroup contains acknowledgment letters for gifts to annual giving, reunion funds, scholarship funds, capital projects and other university efforts.
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Office of the President Records: Christopher L. Eisgruber Subgroup is intended to document the administration of Princeton's 20th president, Christopher L. Eisgruber. The bulk of the records will be transferred upon the completion of President Eisgruber's term, however, a number of letters of acknowledgment for gifts to annual giving, scholarship funds, capital projects and other university efforts were transferred to the library in 2018 and so the collection was established somewhat ahead of schedule.
