Building the House of Knowledge: The Centennial of the Graduate College
The construction of the Graduate College in 1913,
the first residential college in America devoted solely to postgraduate liberal studies,
marked the end of the struggle over its location and the beginning of the Graduate School's
ascendency in the nation's higher education landscape. Designed by Ralph Adams Cram,
the Collegiate Gothic complex has been home to thousands of scholars,
as well as the 173-foot Cleveland Tower, the national memorial to President Grover
Cleveland, an early supporter of Princeton's Graduate School. This exhibition traces
both the intellectual and physical development of the Graduate School and College.
