Reprint of John Maclean's 1877 History of the College of New Jersey ( Princeton University) Volume 1 of 2. Search "Nassau-Hall" for more titles! Maclean was Tenth President. This highly recommended history of the founding, purpose, and corporate life of what is now Princeton University. Originally chartered as the "College of New Jersey," Drawing on ancient spiritual traditions, Princeton was much more than a school, it was a substantial "nursery" for the expansion of education into Theology combined with Science, and for the high drama of the Experiment in Self-Rule" known as the American Revolution, the blessings of which we still enjoy today. The lists of all the graduates and the multitude of high government offices they held makes this a "must read" for anyone studying American government. After all, the original purpose was, according to Richard Stockton, to "Prepare youth for public service to Church and State"[ pg 253 ]. Hebrew, Greek, and Latin all taught to this end.
