Princeton WannaBe Blog

I'm not a real historian.   I didn't grow up in Princeton.    I don't have an Ivy League education.   

I'm a total Princeton WannaBe. 

Still, I gush about loving the heart of Princeton as much as I can!


 

 


Happy Birthday Woodrow Wilson! (Here's Some Info Most People Miss!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOODROW WILSON!

Everyone knows he was a stellar student at Princeton University, then a dynamite Princeton University President then Govenor of New Jersey and then President of the United States.

Did you know he signed women the right to vote  on Chambers Street?  TRUE!  

(In the Glenmede building - it used to be the firehouse .......)

 

 

 

Did you know Woodrow Wilson and Mark Twain had the same taste in women?

TRUE!

Here they are in Bermuda fawning over Mary Peck in Bermuda.  Mark Twain was a frequent guest in Princeton.  I can only imagine their conversations about Princeton back then.

Once you study him, you won't look at Princeton University, feminism or our national/global economics the same way EVER again! 

(Our walking tour is sold out today but you can bet our customers will walk away knowing alot more than they imagined they could learn in 2 short hours!

Did you know he had grape juice and a raw egg for breakfast every morning?

TRUE!
