Commentary: Open Letter to Princeton Professor of History Martha A Sandweiss, director of the Princeton and Slavery Project

Bill Hewitt '74

Excerpt:  I write to bring to your certain and inescapable attention grave, inexplicable, and ongoing gross misrepresentations of Princeton’s John Witherspoon by the Princeton and Slavery Project, for which you are project director.  I request your prompt and thorough undertakings to rectify these grievous wrongs — not simply to Witherspoon, but to all who have looked to the Project for trustworthy information and understanding about Witherspoon’s relation to slavery.  Their reliance on the Project and trust in the imprimatur of Princeton University itself have been wantonly betrayed.
