“It’s a Princeton versus Yale thing.”
That’s Edward Tenner, the author of Why Things Bite Back, summing up the rivalry between Robert Caro and the master builder.
Mr. Caro graduated Princeton in 1957; Moses finished Yale in 1909.
Mr. Tenner told The Real Estate:
Other Yalies: William F. Buckley Jr.; Cole Porter; George W. Bush; Jennifer Beals.
Other Princetonians: George Kennan; Woodrow Wilson; Samuel Alito; Brooke Shields.
Mr. Tenner has a whole anatomy of the Ivies which you can find via his website. He, by the way, is Princeton ’65.
