Exploring the history, function and symbolism of the Faculty Room at Princeton University, a space that had been used variously as a prayer hall, library, and museum until being repurposed in 1906 as a room for executive and ceremonial use and as a gallery for a collection of portrait paintings depicting University founders, American presidents, British monarchs, scholars and other luminaries, this volume is published on the occasion of a related exhibition mounted within the Faculty Room itself, and includes essays examining the significance of the portraits, the building's historic architecture, and issues related to race and memory.
