The new exhibition is now open at the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library. It chronicles the events and decisions framing the development of America’s first graduate residential college. “Building the House of Knowledge:” The Graduate College Centennial is filled with letters, documents and photographs from Princeton’s University Archives that reveal the story of how the concept of resident graduate education went from an inspired idea to a grand achievement, but not without significant controversy that brought nationwide attention to Princeton.
