Creative and Performing Arts

 

          In the Alumni Weekly of February 15, 2006, the University announced the establishment of "The Princeton University Center for the Creative and Performing Arts."  With an initial pledge of over $100 million, the Center will provide programs in creative writing, musical performances, theater, dance, and visual arts, giving them all a common identity and stronger voice.
         For the Class of '52, these arts/activities were performed and developed on a completely extracurricular basis.  Below is a selection of groups in which our classmates participated - and starred - in these fields.
