Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding dedicated

Princeton NJ -- The new Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding was dedicated in a ceremony Sept. 20. The name of the former Third World Center was changed this summer to more accurately reflect its mission. The new name honors Fields, a former Princeton dean who was the first African-American to hold such a high-ranking post at an Ivy League school.

Present at the dedication were, from left, Fields' widow, Hedda, and his brother, Earl, who chatted with members of the University and local communities. A plaque outside the building at 86 Olden St. bears the new name.
