Princeton University announced that the Ivy League institution would remove the mention of President Woodrow Wilson from a public policy college formerly named the Wilson College on Saturday. Wilson’s name will also purged from a residential dorm hall.
Wilson had served as the President of the University, in addition to serving as the Governor of New Jersey, before being elected President of the United States in 1912. He’s most widely known for leading the United States during World War I, keeping the country out of the European War before being drawn in as a result of the Zimmerman Telegram. He led an initiative to create what was called the League of Nations after the war, a predecessor to the United Nations.
The university cited Wilson’s “racist views and policies” as the imperative for the cultural cleanse. Mainstream historians allege that Wilson had instituted elements of segregation in the federal workforce, and was supported by southern segregationists.
