November 16th, 2017 / Gift Planning

As his 50th Reunion approached, Bill Paternotte ’67 thought, “I want to make a tangible statement of what Princeton has meant to me.” But how?

Chances are, when you went to Princeton, your interaction with professors went well beyond the classroom and office hours. The same teacher-scholars who are at the pinnacle of their professions and break new ground in their fields of study also work closely with undergraduates as mentors, advisors, and colleagues.

Condit, a Lehigh University graduate, had contributed to Annual Giving in years past in memory of two alumni he believed were related to him, Professor Kenneth H. Condit '1913, who served as the dean of the School of Engineering during World War II, and Benjamin Smith Condit '1880.
