| FROM THE PUBLISHER

Dear readers, Welcome to our Reunions issue! This is the time of year when thousands of alumni return to “Old Nassau” to renew acquaintances and memories of their time on what is perhaps the most beautiful campus in the world. It is also time for the annual reunions P-rade, a colorful marvel that is unique to Princeton University. Also unique to Princeton’s reunions are the uniforms that each class wears, from the very conservative to the absolutely outrageous. The uniforms are a terrific equalizer of the members of the class. Whether you are a millionaire manager of a Wall Street hedge fund or a high school teacher in Appalachia, the uniform brings you back to the equality you had as undergraduates. Many alumni will also come back to their eating clubs, which are the subject of a beautiful new book created by Princeton’s prolific writer of history, Clifford W. Zink. His book, The Princeton Eating Clubs, is covered in this issue of your magazine with some spectacular photos of the clubs and their interiors from the book. In this issue you will also find several articles about science and new technologies, the development of which is being led by or sponsored by Princeton graduates. Our cover story is about Brad Smith, a 1981 Princeton graduate, and his leadership of Microsoft as its president. Microsoft is one of the early pioneers in the technology revolution that is now taking place all around us. Smith is leading the company into new fields including artificial intelligence and autonomous automobiles. In parallel, you should enjoy the article on the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, which is in its new building on Washington Road. Much of the work of the Institute is currently focused on short-term memory which, as you know, is becoming an issue of increasing concern to our aging population. The Institute is home to the Bezos Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics, which is working on the development and application of microscopy imaging techniques for measuring neural circuit dynamics in the functioning brain. All of this has been made possible through a $15 million gift from Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos. Jeff Bezos is the founder and CEO of Amazon and a Princeton graduate, Class of 1986. Couple Smith and Bezos with Meg Whitman, the former CEO of eBay and the lead donor of the University’s Whitman College and Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google, now Alphabet, and you can appreciate the huge influence that Princeton grads are having on our current way of life and, in fact, the future of the globe. Shirley Tilghman, a scientist in her own right, who led the University as president for 12 years, shares the perspective of her new “life after Nassau Hall” in an article by our editor-in-chief, Lynn Adams Smith. Tilghman recently gave a talk to a packed meeting of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce that was a wonderful discussion of the science, economics, and ethics surrounding the science of microbiology and today’s gene manipulation. She also touched on the huge economic benefits that have historically resulted from the federal government’s support of pure scientific research and research universities. It was interesting to hear how the Trump administration had recommended huge cuts to all the scientific research programs in the federal budget and how, fortunately, Congress put the money back into the budget. In contrast to our offerings on the new accelerating technology, you will enjoy a tour of the laboratory of one the early inventors who started all of this, Thomas Edison. The Thomas Edison National Historic Park has completely preserved and restored Edison’s laboratory exactly as Edison himself would have seen it. We hope you enjoy our photographic tour in this issue. When I was kid growing up in Princeton, after the P-rade, Class Day, and the University’s commencement, the town of Princeton literally went to sleep! There was nobody in town and nothing to do. That is not the case

today! For a host of reasons, Princeton has become a “destination,” and there is now a lot going on during the summer. So much so, that in this issue we are not presenting our typical calendar, but instead we are outlining many activities in which you can partake during the summer. This summer, there is a brand new venue with lots of activities planned. The newly-completed Stockton Education Center at Morven is covered in this issue. Morven was the home of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and, for many decades, the home of the governor of New Jersey. It is now an outstanding museum with frequent exhibits of Americana. Well worth a visit. On a personal note, at the end of May, Barbara and I are marrying off our daughter Jordon, a former writer of the Vintage Princeton section of this magazine. Then a week later we will be hosting “’59s fabulous 59th” reunion. We hope to see many of you in the P-rade. Rah, Rah, Rah,...Tiger, Tiger, Tiger,...Sis, Boom, Bah! Princeton, Princeton, Princeton!!! Lynn Adams Smith and I hope you enjoy this issue, the reunions, and the start of a wonderful summer. Respectfully yours,

“Data Fallout at Facebook,” “Americans See AI as a Threat to Jobs,” “Digital Cash Made Easy (Fraud Too),” “Self-Driving Car Accidents Will Keep Happening,” “Russian Election Meddling,” “The Rise of Cyber Surveillance,” “Can Democracy Survive Big Data?” The headlines overflow with ominous warnings about the unintended consequences of the rapid growth of technology in the 21st century. Our romance with artificial intelligence (AI) and our faith in its potential to improve our lives have clearly hit a rough patch. A self-driving car kills a pedestrian; Facebook accounts look like more of a liability than an asset to our personal lives and relationships, our freedom, and the stability of our political systems; our jobs are disappearing; and though our smartphones often bring us together and help to educate our children, they can also create more loneliness, less actual human contact, and more closed-mindedness. On March 1, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith, an individual who probably knows as much about the pros and cons of technology as any human being on the planet, addressed a gathering of about 500 in Princeton University’s McCosh Hall on the subject of “The Rise of Artificial Intelligence.” His talk provided as many questions as answers. “It is possible to discern a number of trends and we can make decisions based on those trends, but there is no such thing as a crystal ball, and none of us can know with certainty what lies ahead,” Smith said. He emphasized the power of technology, “AI is making every field better. It could be a game-changer for the planet.” But he warned, “We can’t afford to look at this future with uncritical eyes.”

A Princeton University alumnus, Class of 1981, and a trustee, Smith is Microsoft’s chief compliance officer, playing a key role in representing Microsoft across the globe and in leading the company’s work on a number of critical issues, including privacy, security, accessibility, environmental sustainability, and others. In 2013 he was named by the National Law Journal as one of the 100 most influential lawyers in the United States, and in 2014 the New York Times called him “a de facto ambassador for the technology industry at large.” After graduating from Princeton with a degree summa cum laude in international relations and economics, Smith earned his law degree at Columbia University and studied international law and economics at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Switzerland. Before he joined Microsoft in 1993, he worked at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm of Covington & Burling, where he is still remembered as the first lawyer in the history of the firm to insist (in 1986) on having a personal computer on his desk as a condition for accepting a job offer.

In a recent email, Smith reflected on how his undergraduate experience at Princeton, with its focus on international issues, politics, and technology, helped to shape his future career. “I was fortunate as an undergraduate to learn about technology policy issues, both as a student in the Wilson School and on the job as a work-study student for Princeton’s director of government affairs,” he wrote. “I combined these interests with study in international relations, often from a historical vantage point. I developed a passion for the combination of these issues and have had the opportunity to pursue them throughout my career.” Forty years later, as a trustee, Smith continues to engage with these issues at Princeton. “One of the many great pleasures of serving as a Princeton trustee has been the chance to reconnect with the many advances in all of these fields taking place across the campus,” he said. Smith went on to comment on the potential for collaboration between academic and business communities. Microsoft recently joined with Princeton University and one of its undergraduate students to bring a lawsuit against the federal government for its decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program,

and in April a federal judge ruled that the government’s action was unlawful. Writing about research possibilities in the university-business alliance, Smith noted, “We’re living in a time of rapid technological change, and we see this both across the tech sector and in the basic research pursued at the country’s great universities. It’s an important time to foster collaboration between companies and universities. This helps us learn from each other, and often we can learn together through collaborative research projects.” He added, “It’s critical for business to respect the academic freedom that is fundamental to the role of faculty at the nation’s universities. By respecting that principle, I believe there is huge potential for researchers from companies and universities to work together to advance the frontiers of knowledge, especially in fields that are fundamental to the future of computer and data science.”

“NEED TO WAKE UP”

Smith’s speech at Princeton in March was balanced in its enthusiasm and fear, its optimism and concern for the future. He warned the packed lecture hall that the challenges ahead are

“AMBASSADOR FOR TECHNOLOGY”

formidable — both for individuals seeking rewarding employment and for societies striving to uphold principles of ethics in the face of powerful technological forces. “We need to be prepared for the unexpected,” he said, “and we may need to be agile as we think about what we may need to call on governments to do, which I think is sobering because in some ways we don’t live in a time with the most agile government in history in terms of politics, regardless of what side of the political spectrum you might be on.” Smith cited Albert Einstein, who, in the 1930s between the World Wars, observed that over the course of the previous century humanity’s ability to organize had not kept pace with its ingenuity in the development of technology. “Can we do better in the 21st century than the world did in the previous century?” Smith asked. “Or will we have to go through some other calamity before we wake up and do what the world requires?” He continued, “Even as we embrace these new technologies, we do need to wake up. We are not fully awake. If we wake up a little more, I’ll be a little more optimistic.” Putting the rise of technology into context, Smith first asked his listeners to think about how

much technology had changed lives over the past 20 years, the life span of many of the students in the audience, and to contemplate the changes that might occur in the coming 20 years. In 1998 there was TV, radio, an old phone, an answering machine, probably a VCR that was too complicated to operate fully, but “nothing digital in the way people started their day.” Today, he noted, the smartphone is the first thing many people reach for in the morning. It’s the device that not only wakes you, but serves up headlines and updates you on your friends’ social lives. “Compared with the world just 20 years ago, we take a lot of things for granted that used to be the stuff of science fiction.”

WORLD OF 2038

Smith went on to describe a world 20 years from now, in 2038, grounded in artificial intelligence, where your digital assistant will assemble and organize your information, prepare you for your day, and update you on everything you need to know for the day ahead. “You’ll probably have a digital assistant talking to you as you’re shaving or putting on your make-up to get ready for your day,” he said. AI will also attend to your health and medical needs.

With its ability to create ever more powerful computers, harnessing huge amounts of data, Smith said that AI will increasingly promote breakthroughs in health care, agriculture, education, and transportation. It will aid people with disabilities and combat climate change. “The real goal,” Smith emphasized, “is to make sure that all of this technology actually helps us and amplifies human ingenuity. Ultimately the question is not only what computers can do. It’s what computers should do.” Highlighting both good and bad effects of technology, Smith queried, “As computers become more like humans, how will they impact real people?” He echoed Stephen Hawking’s warning: “I fear that AI might replace humans altogether.”

THE ETHICS OF AI

Along with the benefits of technology have come many complex questions and concerns about technology’s effects on society. The distractions of smartphones, cybersecurity, privacy issues, and the negative uses and impact of social media present huge challenges to society and new ethical considerations.

“For every part of society, consideration of the ethics of AI is essential,” he said. Smith’s concerns with morality and moral leadership seemed to foreshadow comments made just six weeks later by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, testifying before Congress on April 10 over Facebook’s lapses. “We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility,” Zuckerberg said, “and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake and I’m sorry.” In an email response to a question about the current controversy surrounding Facebook, Smith wrote, “We should all look at the tech issues around social media as more of an opportunity than a challenge. Technology is being used in a myriad of ways that are fundamental across society, but we haven’t spent enough time nurturing a broad public conversation about how these products work or the impact they are having. If anything, the congressional hearings about Facebook illustrate the broad learning opportunity our elected politicians have in front of them. Across the tech sector it’s our responsibility to take information to them, and clearly we can do more work in this area.” In his lecture, Smith listed six ethical principles that should guide the development and use of AI: fairness, reliability and safety, privacy and

16 |

PRINCETON MAGAZINE MAY 2018

security, inclusiveness, transparency (to make AI explainable), and accountability. “Accountability is the most important question of our time,” he noted. “How do we ensure that these machines are accountable to people?” Smith proposed a Hippocratic Oath for all AI developers: “First, do no harm.” And he warned that we could “wake up and find that we have entrusted machines with the ability to make decisions that horrify us.”

UPHEAVALS IN EMPLOYMENT

The continuing rapid growth and development of technology, with AI systems more effectively and powerfully processing visual information and analyzing speech and language, will result in more automation and jobs disappearing for car and truck drivers, radiologists, fast food workers, machinery inspectors, paralegals, and others. “But some jobs cannot be replaced by AI,” Smith stated, “like jobs requiring human creativity, empathy, human interactivity.” Social workers, teachers, nurses, and therapists, for example, will not be replaced by AI, but will use AI to enhance their work. Jobs will be created in computer science, data science, and also in the ethics of technology. The most important question, he stated, is “How can AI empower people?”

The elimination of some jobs, the creation of new jobs requiring new skills, and the evolution of old jobs, also requiring new skills, throughout history have always been consequences of the growth of technology. Smith emphasized the importance of embracing the changes, pursuing further education to learn liberal arts, the humanities, and social sciences, as well as engineering and computer science. “The companies and countries that will fare best in the AI era will be those that embrace these changes rapidly and effectively,” Smith observed. “Put simply, new jobs and economic growth will accrue to those that embrace the technology, not those that resist it.” But skilling-up for the world of 2038 will involve more than science, technology, engineering, and math. “As computers behave more like humans, the humanities will become increasingly important,” he added. Smith went on to urge his audience, “Everyone who is in the liberal arts can be learning a little bit of computer science and data science, and every engineer is probably going to need some more liberal arts in their future. Where will AI take you? The job description is just where your job begins. You decide where your job will take you. Seize the challenge and make that future real.”

PNI was introduced in a 2005 Princeton Weekly Tank, a member of the molecular biology and Bulletin article, describing neuroscience as the “next physics faculty, came from Bell Labs and holds a field ripe for scientific breakthroughs,” and promising to Ph.D. from Cornell and bachelor’s degree from Case take a “new approach to studying the brain and nervous Western Reserve.

Some of the impetus for PNI came from the students themselves. During the early planning, “there was an incredible amount of interest among students asking about neuroscience,” said Tank. No modern university can be first class without a world-recognized neuroscience department for research and for teaching.” SHARED SPACES FOR COLLABORATIVE WORK

PNI is distinguished by its focus on connecting theory and experimentation, with a strong teaching mission. It emphasizes an understanding of the principles of function and interaction that apply across the brain, and an understanding of neural coding and dynamics. “We shared the sense that to be a mature science, we had to work in complex data,” said Cohen, recalling the original mission. DONORS SUPPORT THREE CENTERS

For the building, the University hired architect Jose Rafael Moneo of Madrid, a former chair of the Department of Architecture at Harvard, who has also taught at Princeton. Davis Brody Bond LLP and Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates oversaw the execution of the project and landscape. The building, which was ready for occupancy in December 2013, covers 248,000 square feet and meets the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver standards. With the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Institute connected by shared space, the other buildings nearby have formed a sort of academic science neighborhood, which includes the chemistry building on the east side of Washington Road, and the Icahn labs on the west side. Bathed in natural light, the first and second floors of the neuroscience side of the complex house faculty offices and study spaces, with laboratories in the center. The non-connecting walls of the two structures are composed of glass with a three-foot-wide airspace between them. The outer facade is a ribbed “glass curtain” that serves as a sunscreen, and the inner layer is a weather barrier of high-performance glass, according to the University. The lower floor features a common space and a 140-seat lecture hall, shared with the psychology building. (The website explains that imaging and microscopy areas must be in contact with the ground due to vibrations and electromagnetic field restrictions, and are located on the lowest level.) Two stories are above ground, and two are below, while the PeretsmanScully psychology building has five levels above ground and two below.

The intellectually-progressive neuroscience space has excited donors. Three gifts have especially supported new centers. The Bezos Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics, led by Tank, was created by a $15 million gift from Jeff ’86 and MacKenzie ’92 Bezos. At the Bezos Center, Princeton researchers work toward an understanding of patterns of nerve cell electrical and chemical activity in which information is created, manipulated, and stored. The focus of the Bezos Center is the development and application of microscopy imaging techniques for measuring neural circuit dynamics in the functioning brain. The Regina and John Scully ’66 Center for the Neuroscience of Mind and Behavior explores how the physical mechanisms of the brain give rise to the functions of the mind, enhancing the understanding of learning, decision-making, and other behaviors. Brothers James S. McDonnell III ’58 and John F. McDonnell ’60 joined with the JSM Charitable Trust to make a $30 million gift to establish the McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience. Additionally, a $20 million gift from Nancy Peretsman ’76 and Robert Scully ’72 named the psychology building. TODAY’S VIBRANT RESEARCH

Today, Princeton, a university that does not emphasize professional schools like medical school or law school, is considered a leader in neuroscience with a vibrant research program, according to the directors.

More collaborative work is being done, especially with the departments of engineering and computer science. And the goal of the RutgersPrinceton Center for Computational Cognitive Neuro-Psychiatry is to leverage the expertise in Princeton’s Department of Psychology and the Neuroscience Institute, Rutgers’ Departments of Psychology, Psychiatry, and Computer Science; Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care; Robert Wood Johnson Hospital; and the Rutgers Brain Health Institute in a major collaborative initiative. PNI and Intel Labs are working together to break new ground in the study of the brain and reading the human mind, using a system that focuses on human mapping. One of the markers of success is the level of outside funding, notes Cohen. In that area, PNI is the recipient of grants from prestigious foundations, including National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Templeton Foundation, Impact, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute. “It’s a pretty amazing portfolio,” said Cohen. For example, just this past fall Princeton announced that four University projects are among 121 selected by the National Institutes of Health to receive an overall $219 million in funds related to the federal Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative. A $15.4 million grant funds the next five years of ongoing investigations into short-term “working” memory using the latest techniques including virtual reality, automated behavioral training, cellular-resolution imaging in rodents, manipulation of neural activity in specific brain areas and cell types, and automated anatomical reconstruction. Tank is among several professors leading that research.

That Club Life by Anne Levin In 1877, a small group of sophomores at the College of New Jersey — soon to be renamed Princeton University — decided to start a club where they could dine together and socialize. Renting rooms in a small brownstone and hiring a couple to cook and serve meals, the friends unwittingly began a tradition that has become a key part of the University experience. From that first club, called Ivy, 18 more followed. The architecturally distinctive mansions that line Prospect Avenue and a section of Washington Road are the focus of The Princeton Eating Clubs, a lavishly-illustrated, diligentlyresearched book by Clifford Zink. Published last fall by the

Princeton Prospect Foundation, it is full of historical anecdotes and photographs from the clubs’ archives and libraries. Zink tells the whole story — the loyalty of members, the admission of women, and the focus on architectural excellence. “Today, the eating clubs compose a unique cluster of impressive college clubhouses unmatched anywhere,” he writes. “They embody the social and architectural aspirations of their undergraduate and alumni builders, and the ensuing spirited tradition of cooperation and stewardship by their successors has enured to the great benefit of Princeton and the community at large.”

Shirley M. Tilghman


Tilghman teaching a freshman seminar. (Photo courtesy of Office of Communications, Princeton University)

After stepping down in July of 2013, I spent a year’s sabbatical, primarily in London, and have since returned to the faculty full time. I have been teaching in both the Freshman Seminar Program and in the Woodrow Wilson School, and working on science policy issues. My life seems to be almost as busy, but the major difference is that I have more control over my schedule. In layman’s terms, please explain one or two exciting new advances in molecular biology, genetics, or genomics. The most significant development in genetics and genomics in the last several decades has been the discovery of a technology called CRISPR/Cas9 that is capable of modifying the sequence of essentially any genome in the plant and animal kingdom. This technology, referred to as gene editing, has profound implications for understanding the function of genes, especially in organisms that were impervious in the past to genetic approaches. It has also gained a great deal of attention because of its potential to be used in clinical medicine to correct genetic mutations. The second major advance has been the development of a whole new stable of imaging tools that allow scientists to observe the action of individual molecules in living cells. It is the golden age of imaging. You no longer have an active research laboratory, but advise students on their independent work. Could you provide us with the topics of a couple of senior theses that you found particularly interesting?

Last year I advised a student in the Woodrow Wilson School, Ciara Corbeil, who was interested in the role that the 2016 presidential debates played in educating the public about the policy issues. I became her adviser because I was serving on the Presidential Debate Commission at the time. She did a very comprehensive meta-analysis of the policy content of the three debates, and compared them to different kinds of news programs. I also advised Angela Liang, a molecular biology concentrator, who wrote her senior thesis on the question of whether there is convincing evidence for trans-generational inheritance of epigenetic information. This is a topic that was being actively explored in the scientific community, but it was also being hyped in the media in articles that claimed that the behavior of mothers and fathers could affect the long-term outcome of their offspring. She was able to convincingly show that the there was little rigorous evidence for such inheritance. Talk about Undergraduate Women’s Leadership at Princeton University and explain “She Roars.” photo by charles r. plohn

What have you been doing since stepping down as president of Princeton University, and how has your life changed?

About eight years ago a number of us began to notice that male and female undergraduates were making different choices with respect to seeking leadership positions on campus and applying for prestigious fellowships. I commissioned a study, chaired by faculty member and former Duke President Nan Keohane, to look into the question. The committee she assembled studied the issue intensively and verified that our impressions were accurate. Men tended to seek leadership in high visibility positions (student government president, editor-in-chief of The Daily Princetonian, officers of eating clubs) while women were leading organizations that attracted less attention — for example, community service and the arts. They also confirmed that men were more likely to MAY 2018 PRINCETON MAGAZINE

apply for Rhodes and Marshall postgraduate scholarships. The committee made very specific recommendations that were intended to encourage women to think more broadly about their leadership potential. The recommendations have been instituted and now there is much less difference between men and women in all categories. “She Roars” was a fabulous 2011 conference of alumna of Princeton that brought together women across the generations to reflect on their lives and to reinforce their connection to Princeton. There will be a second conference in the fall. Talk about your experience serving on the board of directors of Google. How often do you meet and do you sit on a particular committee? Can you share with us what types of topics are discussed? I served on the Google (which became Alphabet) board for 12 years, and it was a highlight of my professional career. I describe it as having a front row seat to the future. The board met in person four times a year in Mountain View, and had periodic conference calls when issues called for them. The board primarily reviewed the company’s strategy and discussed future initiatives. I was a member of the Nomination and Governance Committee. What do you like to do for fun? The most fun I have these days is playing with my two grandchildren. Otherwise I play tennis and ski with close friends, and garden.

PRINCETON MAGAZINE MAY 2018

Have you read any good books lately? I am reading Go, Went, Gone, a book about the tragic state of African migrants in Germany as told through the experience of a retired German professor of classics, who becomes interested and concerned about their fate. I recently finished The Islamic Enlightenment, which is a history of Islam during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It recounts the political movements and reforms that occurred during this period that contradict the common view of Islam as a backward-looking religion. Do you have any favorite phone apps? Yes — Wunderlist, which makes it possible for me to remember what I need to do! What do you enjoy most about Princeton’s Reunions, and could you share a special memory from one of the many Reunions you have attended? My favorite event is the P-rade. There is something very moving about watching the generations proceed down Elm Drive, and past the reviewing stand. You are witnessing Princeton’s history — the brave veterans of World War II whose Princeton experience was interrupted or shortened; the arrival of the first women and individuals of color; the appearance of the strollers in the classes that are out five-15 years; then the youngsters and eventually the teenagers who look a little uncomfortable marching with their crazy parents in their orange and black costumes; and the exuberance of the graduating class as they rush onto Poe Field. It is just a joyous occasion.


HOPE LIVES HERE On April 26, 2008, Margaret Wilby died suddenly leaving 5 children ages 4, 10, 16, 22, and 27, and her husband Pete. 10 years ago, there were no support services for grieving children and families in the Princeton area. It was not until the fall of 2012, 4 years after Margaret’s death, that Good Grief expanded its free and unlimited services from Morristown, NJ to Princeton, NJ. Within 2 years of renting space at Trinity Church in Princeton, there was a 3-month waiting list, and it was apparent Good Grief needed a permanent home in Princeton to serve the community’s grieving children and families. In 2015, Good Grief moved to 5 Mapleton Road and launched a $2 million Capital Campaign. On the 10th anniversary of Margaret’s death, Pete Wilby made a lead gift to name Good Grief’s Princeton Center after his late wife: The Margaret Anne Wilby Center. In 5 years in Princeton, Good Grief has served over 500 children and adults from Central New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.

The Margaret Anne Wilby Center at 5 Mapleton Road

Statistics show that 1 out of 7 children will experience the death of a parent or sibling before the age of 20, which would equate to 280,000 children in New Jersey. Furthermore, 90% of all children will

face grief through the death of an immediate family member, grandparent, friend, or other close relationship.

Good Grief provides a 360-degree approach to prevention and intervention strategies in the face of devastating loss, including comprehensive educational programs, advocacy within the communities we serve and nationally, and strategic partnerships to ensure mission fulfillment and impact. As a thought-leader and nationally respected voice on childhood bereavement, Good Grief leverages its knowledge by providing results-driven and comprehensive workshops and seminars, school and community-based curriculums, and online resources. Childhood bereavement is a universal threat to every demographic. Even though every individual and each context faces its own set of risk factors, they all share an opportunity for post-traumatic growth and resiliency. Good Grief decreases risk factors and promotes effective intervention inside and outside of its centers, working towards a more supportive, grief-informed, and compassionate community.

TOGETHER, WE CAN ENSURE THAT NO CHILD EVER HAS TO GRIEVE ALONE WhatisGoodGrief.com

Imagining Retirement S

BY STUART MITCHNER

amuel Johnson had it right when he said, “It is better to live rich than to die rich.” Although I’m well past retirement age, I’d never given it much thought until I sat down to write this article. If you’ve been writing since you were 10 and intend to keep on doing so, whether or not you do it for a living, retiring simply isn’t an option. While I appreciate the virtues of planning ahead, “saving for a rainy day,” and so forth, the whole idea is alien to my sense of what makes life worth living. Contrary to my idea that writers and artists never really retire, Philip Roth and Daniel Day-Lewis have both felt compelled to go public about it. So Roth will never write the 21st-century equivalent of The Tempest and Day-Lewis will never play King Lear. Shakespeare was in his forties when he wrote those plays, and he was only 47 when he left London and his life in the theatre to retire to Stratford. He could afford it, he had a sizeable annuity, but after creating wonders the world is still in awe of, he shut the door on his genius. While I can rationalize it on Johnsonian terms — Shakespeare lived rich and died rich — I prefer to think about saving toward retirement as saving a dream, and if money helps make it happen, so much the better. But what matters is that you’ve been storing up the possibility, sitting on it, ruminating on it, savoring it all the time you’ve been living out your everyday careerist existence. Comes the time to go for it and the dream is in play whether you decide to write poetry, invent something, create a new persona online, or become a sage wandering the nooks and crannies of India. The conventional golf course/cruise ship scenario for the second act — of which there are none in American life, if you believe F. Scott Fitzgerald — just doesn’t do it for me. THINK RENAISSANCE

I like the way Forrest J. Wright pitches his book, Time for Wonderlust: Planning Your Retirement Renaissance (Real Leisure Press 2018), a title that circumvents the off-putting essence of the r-word, turning “wanderlust” to “wonderlust” and pairing “retirement” with “renaissance.” According to Kirkus Reviews, Wright has put

PRINCETON MAGAZINE MAY 2018

together “an intriguing combination of economics, philosophy, history, and advice aimed at readers who wish to plan for a meaningful retirement.” As far as the nuts and bolts of saving goes, NAPFA financial planner Martha Kapouch says, “In this day and age of rapid change and many career changes, Forrest’s ideas about establishing financial freedom are even more relevant. He views retirement as an entry into a time of unrestricted personal achievement. Preparing for this event requires acquiring the appropriate mindset as well as accumulating the financial resources needed to support a comfortable retirement.” KEEP MOVING

My instinct is to look for a title that lives and moves, not one that sinks snoozing into a La-Z-Boy recliner. For instance, Mike Drak and Jonathan Chevreau’s Victory Lap Retirement (M&M 2016) with its subtitle Work While You Play, Play While You Work — The Joy of Financial Independence . . . at Any Age and Drak’s playfully titled preface, “A Retirement Book about Not Retiring.” The book has 11 chapters, beginning with “Rethinking Your Retirement” and including sections like “Why Do the Media Sell the Wrong Version of Retirement?” and “Beware of Sudden Retirement Syndrome.” Another key chapter is titled “The Seven Eternal Truths of Financial Independence.” One example of productive retirement the authors give concerns Professor Fred Kummerow, “the driving force behind the fight to get trans fats out of our diets.” After officially retiring at the age of 71, Kummerow, who was 101 when Victory Lap Retirement was published in 2016, maintained his lab at the University of Illinois, riding a bike to work every day well into his eighties. His project was to “show the link between poor diets and Alzheimer’s disease.” YOUR RETIREMENT DESTINY

In Control Your Retirement Destiny: Achieving Financial Security Before the Big Transition (A Book’s Mind 2016), retirement expert Dana Anspach explains how to focus on the things you can control (like managing taxes and risk) rather than on those you can’t control (such as inflation or investment returns). The book covers all the major topics in retirement planning — investments, Social Security, annuities, taxes, healthcare, part-time work, and more — while providing examples of how planning decisions can result in a more secure outcome when they are coordinated. WILD AND FREE?

According to Nancy Conroy of the Association of Retirement Planners, Ernie Zelinski’s best-selling (325,000 copies) How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free (Visions


International 2009) “is optimistic, practical, humorous, and provocative AND comprehensively addresses the many issues impacting individuals as they think about their retirement.” Zelinski’s book is garnished with quirky illustrations and pithy quotations like the one from Alexander Pope that serves as an epigraph for the preface: “Learn to live well, or fairly make your will;/You’ve played, and loved, and ate, and drunk your fill:/Walk sober off; before a sprightlier age/Comes tittering on, and shoves you from the stage.” The opening chapter (“Perhaps It’s Time to Tell Your Boss ‘I’m Outta Here!’”) goes Pope one better, taking us back to the Bard with the song from Cymbeline: “Fear no more the heat o’ the sun, Nor the furious winter’s rages; Thou thy worldly task hast done, Home art gone, and ta’en thy wages.” Note that Zelinski leaves out the last two lines: “Golden lads and girls all must, As chimney-sweepers, come to dust” — the endgame reality most retirement books prefer not to confront beyond referencing such things as transcendence and spirituality. Victory Lap Retirement ends with “The Final Chapter: How Would You Like Yours to Read?” Time for Wonderlust is more ambitious, providing a lengthy appendix that includes discourses on existentialism, Jean Paul Sartre, Hamlet, Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls, and Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, quoting Private Joker, “The dead know only one thing: it is better to be alive.” I’d rather end with the last three lines of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 146: “Within be fed, without be rich no more. So shalt thou feed on Death, that feeds on men, And, Death once dead, there’s no more dying then.”

The Wizard We Never Knew

Understanding Thomas Edison —BY WILLIAM UHL— PHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY OF THOMAS EDISON NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK


W

alking through the halls of Thomas Edison’s laboratory in Thomas Edison National Historical Park in West Orange, it’s easy to think history’s been frozen in time. From the chemical storage to his personal lounge, everything in the laboratory has been meticulously preserved and restored to look how Edison himself would have seen it. The material storage room still has everything ranging from iron bars to elephant hide, and the production floor has era-appropriate hats and jackets hanging on workers’ hooks.

In his office, a laminated photo on a table in the center of the room shows Edison, once called “The Wizard of Menlo Park,” standing in the right corner, glass specimen containers lined up on every shelf and surface. True to the photo, the right side of the room today has several glass containers side by side, recreating the almost century-old photo. The left side of the room, however, has a simple set of boxes, cabinets, and papers; nothing more. That photo of Edison standing in the corner is the only known photo of the office in Edison’s time – the emptiness around it is as close as historians have gotten to reconstructing what was once there. After speaking with historical author and park archivist Leonard DeGraaf, the divide between the historically-checked, tightly-packed, jar-laden shelves and the empty, unknown cabinets seems to illustrate the gaps in our understanding of Thomas Edison.

PRINCETON MAGAZINE MAY 2018


Thomas Edison is best remembered as the prolific inventor of the light bulb, along with many other creations such as the phonograph, electric generator, and alkaline battery. A 2012 poll from MIT of Americans ages 16-25 even ranked Edison as the greatest innovator of all time, coming out far above more timely figures like Steve Jobs. Yet despite being such a celebrated figure, elements of his life remain obscured. The archives at the Thomas Edison National Historic Park are comprised of all kinds of documents, from Edison’s letters to and from presidents and the original sketches for many of his inventions, to his daily to-do lists and letters from children thanking him for their radio. The

combination of Edison’s meticulous note-taking and the efforts to preserve relevant documents even when he was still alive has resulted in a tremendously large number of historical documents. “Nobody really knows how big the archives are because we haven’t completed the cataloguing yet,” said DeGraaf. “You’ll read somewhere where it will be three and a half million pages; it was up to five million, and now they’re talking about six million – we just don’t know.” All those documents, major and minor, are crucial for creating a whole and truthful idea of who Thomas Edison was. “There’s a lot of mythology about Edison out there — either things that are untrue, or are distorted and based on

things that were turned around,” DeGraaf said. In the distant past, scam artists would dishonestly use Edison’s world-renowned name on their products in order to apply a veneer of credibility. These days, viral myths, like the notion that Edison stole Nikola Tesla’s inventions, eat away at Edison’s image without historical fact to back them up. “It’s important to respect history, and it’s important to understand how the process of understanding historical knowledge is created and studied. In a lot of ways, it’s a misuse of history,” said DeGraaf. Among the millions of files in the archive are dozens, if not more, of pages of correspondence between Edison and Tesla — the preservative efforts of others, several decades ago, have meant that those letters are still present and legible.

More than just dispelling myths, there are important areas of Edison’s life that have gone without thorough analysis. Edison was a prolific inventor, but fewer people know of his history as a businessman. He was one of the leading figures in the early days of the music record industry, selling records that were cylindrical as opposed to disc-shaped. When the market moved away from his cylindrical record design, he stuck to it, pointing to the improved sound quality. His unyielding dedication to the cylindershaped record, as opposed to the now-familiar disc, ultimately contributed to the downfall of Edison’s business in that area. Untold stories like this are important, not just for Edison’s history, but for our future. “I think

that Edison’s experience is important because he allows us to talk about and appreciate bigger questions in American history,” said DeGraaf. “How does society develop and introduce new technologies? These technologies don’t just appear — they’re socially constructed. By thinking about Edison and looking at how he works, it’s one way of getting at those questions.” Understanding Edison as an inventor and a businessman beyond the pop-culture conception is important not just for Edison’s sake, but for what inventors and businesses can take away for the future. Discovering the greater meaning among the millions of letters, notebooks, and pieces of parchment is no small goal. “We try to bring

order out of chaos,” said DeGraaf. “We try to make accessible to researchers and other users quantities of historical documents, to help them understand what’s in the material, what kinds of information is there, and to help them answer their questions about those documents.” There’s no way of knowing what exactly will emerge from that chaos — maybe a new way of thinking about innovation. Maybe a thorough understanding of Edison’s successes and failures as a businessman. Or maybe what sat on the other side of his office. Until then, the left side of Edison’s office is staying bare — a reminder of how much history we have yet to learn.

RENDERINGS COURTESY OF MORVEN MUSEUM AND GARDEN

Imagining an addition to Morven, the historic Princeton museum that was home to a signer of the Declaration of Independence and five New Jersey governors, one might understandably expect a building in the style of the 18th-century Greek Revival mansion. But the recently opened Stockton Education Center, which adds muchneeded space to the site, bears no resemblance to its grand old ancestor. “That is definitely on purpose,” says Jill Barry, Morven Museum and Garden’s director. “People say, ‘Oh, it’s such a contemporary building!’ But Morven is a National Historic Landmark, and the guidelines say that with an addition, there can be no confusion over what is new and what is old. In fact, the highest point of the new building has to be lower than the lowest window of the old building’s second floor. Those are the rules.” Baltimore-based GWWO Architects designed the sleek, spare addition, which adds a light-filled gathering space, a classroom, offices, bathrooms, and storage space to the complex. The idea is to bring the landscape in, and put the architectural spotlight on the original house and outbuildings, rather than in on itself. GWWO boasts impressive credits, including the interpretive center for George Washington’s Mount Vernon in Virginia. “They are very familiar with working on historic sites,” Barry said when ground was broken for the Princeton project in January 2017. “They understand that this building is not the showstopper. The mansion is the showstopper. This is the support building. It will be beautiful, but the focus is the mansion. This is for supporting programming and backup house stuff that we desperately need.”

their schedules. Now, we have a place for lectures that can hold 160 or so for sit-down lectures, and a little less for luncheons and things like that. It’s a huge difference.” Morven’s first floor is being closed over the summer to allow the staff to assemble a much more comprehensive exhibit of its history. Instead of focusing only on Richard Stockton, there will be information about families that were residence through 1982, the end of the gubernatorial administration of Brendan Byrne. “With extra space next door, we can now focus in the main house on the first three generations of Stocktons,” Barry said. “What’s interesting about Morven is we’ve had generations of personalities, not just one person. And up until now, unless you were with a docent, you wouldn’t even know it was a governors’ mansion.” Morven had slaves on the property, later immigrant servants, and still later, employees. Through conversations with the children of Byrne and former Governor Richard Hughes, the staff has been able to gather oral histories that will add to the collection. Byrne’s son Tom Byrne put them in touch with Wavanie Mouko, who was a cook for the family and a great source of information. “Being able to blow these stories out and have more conversations is wonderful,” said Barry. “This new building allows us to do so much more of that.” Morven’s status as a historic site has prevented the kinds of children’s programs that involve crafts and related materials. The classroom in the new center is designed specifically for such activities. The new building also allows Morven to free up its attic, turning crowded office space into a climate-controlled storage area. “This whole project is so special,” said Barry. “It allows us to reach our mission so much more effectively. It is meant to be gracious, and not overwhelming to the original site. And I think that has been achieved.”

The project has been a long haul. It was first proposed nearly 15 years ago, but it took another seven years before the New Jersey Historic Sites Council granted approval. Sent back to the drawing board after appearing before what was then Princeton’s Borough Council in 2005, the museum revised its scheme for expansion, which had originally suggested a new building in front of the historic mansion on Stockton Street. GWWO’s plan has placed the addition to the right of the house, with its rear facing the former Borough Hall (now Monument Hall). The namesake of the new building is Richard Stockton, known as “the signer.” He built Morven in the late 1750s, before the American Revolution. The property also includes a pool house dating from the residence of Robert Wood Stockton in the 1940s, renovated as part of a $5.8 million restoration of Morven that began in 2004. Other restored buildings include the 1850s carriage house, now used for garden support, and the former ice house from 1850, which is now a gift shop. Private funds have paid for the $6.5 million project. On a rainy morning in late April, workers were slogging through the mud to put the finishing touches on the new building. Barry pulled on a pair of boots to take a visitor through the site, which was being prepared for a celebratory ribbon cutting, champagne toast, and preview party less than two weeks later. A pristine-looking wood floor was being laid in the airy gathering space, which will be used for a multitude of functions. Barry noticed every detail. “The vents are in!” she exclaimed, spying a pair of restroom doors. “And the TVs! Very exciting.” Until now, Morven’s maximum space for a lecture or other event was only about 24 people. “So we have been dependent on the generosity of our neighbors like The Present Day Club, The Center for Theological Inquiry, and Princeton Public Library for letting us use their space,” Barry said. “That meant we were at the whim of
