Subseries 1: Presidential, 1957-1972
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Subseries 3.1, Presidential, 1957-1972 contains hand written speech notes, penciled on pocket size cards and paper, for occasions in which Goheen had to participate annually as President of Princeton University. The notes concern routine occasions, mainly in the area of alumni relations, as well as meetings and occasions for specific groups within Princeton University. In addition, the subseries includes a bound copy of the first and last address Goheen gave as President of the University, which was presented to him by Dan Coyle, his first Assistant to the President. Additional speeches for this period were compared with those present in series 8.5 of the Office of the President Records (AC #193), and added when not present. If a copy existed only the latest version, often annotated, was kept.
The materials in this subseries are arranged according to date or type of event.
No material was separated during processing in 2006, 2008, or 2015.
