WOMEN’S COLLEGE CLUB OF PRINCETON
P.O. BOX 3181
PRINCETON NJ 08540
As winter finally arrives in Princeton, I realize that we have much to look forward to as a club. Our February speaker is also our favorite presidential enthusiast, the Reverend Dr. David Mulford. Woodrow Wilson is certainly a provocative subject at this time in local and national history.
A trip to the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is in the works for the end of the month. And the organizing efforts for our 100th anniversary celebration at the Chauncey Conference Center on Sunday, April 10, 2016 continue. Treby Williams, Executive Vice President of Princeton University, will introduce our speaker, Professor Nancy Weiss Malkiel, former Dean of the College at Princeton University. Professor Malkiel was Dean of the College for twenty-four years. The title of her talk will be “Bringing Undergraduate Women to Princeton (and Yale, and Dartmouth, and…)”. It will be exciting to share an afternoon with these two distinguished women.
GENERAL MEETING: “WOODROW WILSON – ONE HUNDRED YEARS LATER”
Woodrow Wilson, much of whose life was centered in Princeton, was President of the United States one hundred years ago when the WOMEN’S COLLEGE CLUB OF PRINCETON was organized. In fact, in 1916 Wilson was elected to his second term as president. In this talk, our speaker and friend, the Reverend Dr. David Mulford, takes a look at the often tumultuous life of our 28th president, from his birth in a Presbyterian Manse in Staunton, Virginia in 1856 to his death in Washington DC in 1924.
We shall meet at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, February 15, 2016 at All Saints Episcopal Church. Guests are always welcome.

There will not be a presentation in February, but keep March 5 open for Puccini’s “Manon Lescaut” with Jonas Kaufmann, who has become today’s leading tenor.
On February 26, 2016 we shall share thoughts about a long-time favorite novel, The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett. Erik Larson (The Devil in the White City) calls this the ultimate detective novel and one of the best novels, period, “who in 217 pages creates this world with four of the absolutely most vivid characters that literature, I think, has ever come up with”.
Our hostess will be Carol Stawski. Please call her at if you will be joining us. Meetings begin at 12:00 noon. A light lunch will be served.
Bonnie Larson will send cards to members who are ill or who have lost a family member. Please contact her if you know of a situation.
