Overview and metadata sections

Princeton University. Concerned Alumni of Princeton.

The Concerned Alumni of Princeton (CAP) was a group of politically conservative former Princeton University students that existed between 1972 and 1986. CAP was born in 1972 from the ashes of the Alumni Committee to Involve Itself Now, which was founded in opposition to the college going coed in 1969. Among the issues to which CAP devoted their attention were coeducation, affirmative action, and the integration of the all-male eating clubs.

The records consists of correspondence, by-laws, and publicity items related to the Concerned Alumni of Princeton organization.

The collection was donated to the University Archives in December of 2004 (AR.2004.108).

For preservation reasons, original analog and digital media may not be read or played back in the reading room. Users may visually inspect physical media but may not remove it from its enclosure. All analog audiovisual media must be digitized to preservation-quality standards prior to use. Audiovisual digitization requests are processed by an approved third-party vendor. Please note, the transfer time required can be as little as several weeks to as long as several months and there may be financial costs associated with the process. Requests should be directed through the Ask Us Form.
