Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts

Content: When Woodrow Wilson came to be President of Princeton University in 1902 he wanted to make it the finest in America. First, he loosened the college's Presbyterian ties, breaking the control of fundamentalist ministers and laymen over the Board of Trustees. Wilson then set out to build the strongest faculty possible. The first Jewish professor was appointed in 1905, the first Catholic in 1909. Attracted by his reputation and drive, senior scholars from schools all across America were lured to Princeton.
