Transcription

President's Room Princeton University Princeton, NJ May 24,1907 My dear Sir:- In reply to your letter of May 21st, I would say that we have never made any arrangements at Princeton by which a student who does work of a high grade in any given course receives more credit thereon toward graduation than one who does work at an ordinary grade. We have never considered such an arrangement because we do not graduate men by "points", and our courses under our new system of study are reading courses rather than lecture courses, making it impossible, as it is undesirable, that a course should be reckoned by the number of hours devoted to it in classroom. Very sincerely yours, Woodrow Wilson Mr. Charles R. Keyes
