On Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 7:00 p.m., the Princeton Men's Hockey Team takes on Yale at Ingalls Rink in New Haven. Before the game there will be a reception for alumni, parents of Princeton players and other supporters held at the beautiful home of Gilles Carter, starting at 4:30 PM (100 Edgehill Road, New Haven, about a mile from the hockey rink). Gilles and the Carter family are well known for their gracious hospitality and have hosted many terrific Princeton gatheri...ngs over the years. Join us for drinks and a pre-game meal featuring Duck A L'Orange and Poached Salmon, and most importantly, plenty of great company. Please let Gilles know if you can attend for food purposes but please come even if you decide at the last minute.
The Men's team is led by an elite player, junior Max Verroneau, a candidate for the Hobey Baker Award (college hockey's Heisman Trophy) and fellow junior and Ottawa native Ryan Kuffner. Senior co-captain Eric Robinson is one of many players who we expect to play professionally when their college days are over. Princeton is one of the leading offensive teams in the league with scoring throughout the line up. Since Yale has been selling out most games lately, the PAAEC has purchased 75 tickets for Princeton alumni and families. To reserve your tickets, contact Alan Rosner at email@example.com, cell (203)809-0224. Payment for tickets ($15.00) can be made at the game. PAAEC will provide graduate students with free tickets but they must be reserved in advance.

Marc Wortman (PhD Princeton ’87 Comparative Literature) will discuss his new book 1941: Fighting the Shadow War: A Divided America in a World at War.
A selection of fine wines, artisan beers, cheese, and other appetizers will be offered before and after the talk. Please join us. There is “no charge” for this event. Other guests (besides Tigers) are most welcome!
Conventional wisdom dictates that the US entered World War II in retaliation for the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Howe...ver, in 1941: Fighting the Shadow War: A Divided America in a World at War, historian Marc Wortman compellingly reveals the ways in which America played an increasingly significant and clandestine role in the war in the months and years prior to officially joining the battle.
Timed to the seventy-fifth anniversary of US entry into World War II, 1941 skillfully interweaves military, political, and social history to tell the story of how President Franklin D. Roosevelt used all the powers at his disposal, from helping Winston Churchill and the British Navy with loans and sea patrols, to espionage at home and abroad, to battle with Hitler and the Japanese in the shadows. While Americans were sympathetic to the people being crushed under the Axis powers, they were unwilling to enter a foreign war. FDR knew he had to fight against isolationism, anti- Semitism, and the scars of World War I to win the war of public sentiment. Wortman narrates FDR’s path to war with a momentum and perspective that casts the story in new light.
Marc will be happy to sign and inscribe copies. A limited number of copies will be available for purchase at the event.
Please let us know if you're planning to attend (firstname.lastname@example.org) as even rough numbers will help us prepare. Also, please also inform us if you can help (a) prep, (b) set up, and/or (c) clean up. It's a big event and we appreciate any and all help!
