- Scope and Contents
Subseries 3.2, Post-Presidential, 1972-1997, contains a series of speeches Goheen gave and articles he wrote after he retired as President of Princeton University. The subseries contains a general run for the period 1972-1997, which was compiled from several series that Goheen kept, including indexes for the period 1972-1990 and 1995-1997. The indexes have been filed together after of the general run. Topics concern higher education, philanthropy, foundations and other subjects relating to positions Goheen held as well as his personal interests, particularly India. The files include eulogies and speeches for family occasions. Speeches and statements Goheen gave as Ambassador to India between 1977-1980, however, are found after the general run. The files are followed by Goheen's speech notes for talks that he gave on India after he retired as ambassador.
