Shapiro presidency showcased

exhibition chronicling the leadership of President Shapiro at Princeton is on display through Sept. 30 in the Firestone Library lobby.

"The Presidency of Harold T. Shapiro, 1988-2001" includes publications, photographs and other memorabilia that tell the story of Princeton's 18th president.

The exhibition fills 10 cases. A timeline describing highlights of the Shapiro years runs through nine of the cases. Items that illustrate the timeline include: a photograph of Shapiro and his grandson at his inauguration; invitations, photographs and other materials surrounding the visit to campus by President George Bush in 1991; correspondence from President Bill Clinton and actor James Stewart; photographs and other items from the classes Shapiro has taught; copies of two books he has edited; and memorabilia from the University's 250th anniversary celebration and Anniversary Campaign.

A 10th case contains a map of the campus noting architectural changes that have occurred during Shapiro's presidency.
