Princeton’s Buried Bodies

Paul Needham

Excerpt: In 2008, in conversation (that is, in heated argument) with me about another matter of academic discipline, [Christopher] Eisgruber, then provost of the university, took the position that a Princeton employee who had lied about possessing three academic degrees she did not possess nevertheless should not be fired. What wrong has Katz committed that goes so far beyond the apparently forgivable sin of multiple academic frauds?

Paul Needham was Princeton’s Scheide librarian from 1998 to 2020.
