On Nov. 3, more than 140 young alumni volunteers returned to Princeton for Annual Giving (AG) BootCamp, where recent grads (from the classes of 2009 to 2018) call, text, and Snapchat their classmates to ask them to make a gift to Annual Giving.

By Nancy H. Lin ’77 S76 P10

My father received his graduate degree in economics from Princeton 1935. He was a Boxer Rebellion Indemnity Scholar, and while he enjoyed his studies, he seldom spoke about his years at Princeton, although he did ask me not to join an eating club or play golf.  He became an interpreter, often acted in a paralegal capacity, and community social worker for Chinese immigrants, mostly in New York City’s Chinatown. My father had high, challenging standards and a kind heart.

Lewis ’55 and other generous donors, including Monte Wallace ’53 and Neil Wallace ’55.
