Princeton Symposium on World Affairs (1963)

In July of 1963, Princeton University hosted the Princeton Symposium on World Affairs, the theme of which was "The Pursuit of Excellence in Creative Arts." The weekend-long symposium was comprised of several open panel sessions featuring professionals from a single field or genre such as architecture, painting, music, or prose. Many well-known figures participated, such as I.M. Pei, Philip Johnson, Bernard Malamud, Barnett Newman, and Dave Brubeck.

The collection consists of reel-to-reel audio tapes of the panel discussions on architecture, painting, and prose. A memorandum in the collection provides a complete schedule for the weekend, including information about participants' arrival times and lodging arrangements.
