Mudd Library enhances Princeton history links

The Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library has added 23 new topics addressing Princeton's history to its "frequently asked questions" (FAQ) Web page.

The Mudd Library, which houses the University archives and Princeton's collection of public policy papers, receives in excess of 2,000 reference questions per year. The new FAQs address a broad range of topics on the University and its history, including campus demonstrations in the 1960s and 1970s, Commencement, eating clubs, Reunions and infamous pranks. Princeton's history during wartime is also addressed with new essays on World Wars I and II, Korea and Vietnam. Also included is information on Albert Einstein, the Institute for Advanced Study and the Princeton Theological Seminary.

In addition, the page contains information on how to conduct genealogical research, locate and order photographs or obtain copies of senior theses from the Mudd Library.
