After a six-month search, Princeton University has selected its new president, alumnus and current university Provost Charles Eisgruber. Current president Shirley Tilghman will resign at the end of this academic year. 51-year-old Eisgruber graduated with a degree in physics in 1983, attended Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship, studied law at the University of Chicago, and clerked for Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. The search came down to Eisgruber and 1977 Class President Susan Patton, whose groundbreaking Daily Princetonian op-ed triggered the fourth wave of American feminism. [Inquirer]
