A letter from a reader: A different type of class

November 12, 2007:

When Princeton's Class of 2011 arrived on campus, more than one in 10 hailed from other nations, more than one-third came from minority backgrounds, and just under half were women (Notebook, Oct. 10).

What a different bunch would have walked through FitzRandolph Gate had the Concerned Alumni of Princeton in the 1970s prevailed in CAP's crusades aimed at keeping the campus mostly a white-male enclave.

In this 21st-century era of globalization, can anyone imagine such a university as CAP championed heading the U.S. News & World Report college rankings eight years in a row?

Highland Park, Ill.
