Princeton name 2 campus spaces for black Nobel prize winners

PRINCETON, N. J. – the Princeton University with other AMERICAN universities in a new study of the complicated racial heritage and will be the name of two campus areas for black ex-faculty members, including nobel prize winner Toni Morrison.

Morrison’s name will now grace West College, one of the oldest buildings on the Ivy League campus. She was a member of the university’s creative writing program until she retired in 2006. Her publications are part of the permanent collection of the library.

The large auditorium of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs will be named after Sir Arthur Lewis, another nobel laureate, the pioneer of the research in the economic development.

The new names take effect from 1 July. The decision comes a year after Princeton refused to remove Wilson, the name of the public school policies in response to the call that he was a segregationist.
