It was in the late 60s that Princeton University first admitted women as undergraduates. President Robert J. Goheen told the Daily Princetonian two years prior that coeducation was only a matter of time. On September 6, 1969 148 women took the Ivy League university up on its offer of acceptance amidst a frenzy of media gawking and ribbing. Hordes of women’s papers and magazines, like Women’s Wear Daily, went to press on what the stylish Princeton freshwoman wore on campus. Practically every female student was featured in her hometown paper, including this young lady whose sense of style is as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.
