  • Putting Knowledge to Work

    A graduate of Princeton in the class of 1929, DATUS C. SMITH, JR., has been Director of the Princeton University Press since 1942. Editor and businessman, Mr. Smith believes that the important job of the university presses is to get the results of scholarship into the hands of the general reader. Under his direction the Princeton University Press has published H. D. Smyth’s Atomic Energy for Military Purposes, Erwin Panofsky’s Albrecht Dürer, Foster Rhea Dulles’s Road to Teheran, and the works of Kierkegaard, and will bring out Julian P. Boyd’s fifty-volume edition of Thomas Jefferson’s papers.
