Veblen House Birthday Gathering
June 24 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join the Friends of Herrontown Woods at Veblen House in Herrontown Woods to celebrate Oswald Veblen’s 138th birthday. Veblen and his wife donated Princeton’s first nature preserve in 1957, and he was recently feature in the Princeton Alumni Magazine article about his work to find positions in the U.S. for European scientists imperiled by the Nazi rise in the 1930s/40s. We’ll provide some basics of food/drink if anyone’s hungry, along with some displays about Veblen House past and future, tours of the grounds, and some games. Park in main parking lot off of Snowden Lane, and walk up to the house (when you reach the cottage, take a right through the fence). Scroll down at this link for a map: http://www.fohw.org/p/maps.html
