Ten years ago, Gerhard Andlinger ’52 gave a seminal $100 million gift to the University to establish the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, Princeton University. Andlinger first came to U.S. and to Princeton’s campus after expressing his optimistic vision of the world in an essay he titled “The World I Want” in 1948. He graduated from Princeton with a degree in economics and Arabic, went on to achieve marked success in business management, and set an example in his philanthropy.
On December 22, 2017, Andlinger died at the age of 86. In this beautiful story, the Andlinger Center wishes to express its appreciation for his generosity and vision in bringing the Andlinger Center to life, and they hope to continue his legacy of by bringing passion and vision to Princeton University's research and innovation.
Gerry Andlinger's vision brought him to Princeton as a young immigrant, 70 years ago.
Today the Andlinger Center is working to bring his dream to life.

Tomorrow at 12:30pm! Emmanuel Kreike, Professor of History, will discuss how the impact of war on society and the environment is conceptualized as war against humans or war against nature — genocide or ecocide. But war does not segregate nature and culture. Instead, it triggers "envirocide" by destroying a society's environmental infrastructure or displacing people from it, inviting disease, drought, famine, and social and environmental collapse. Kreike is the second speaker in the Spring 2018 Princeton Environmental Institute, Princeton University Faculty Seminar Series. This event is free to the public.
