It seems unlikely that Robert Goheen, as a member of the Princeton graduating class of '40, had any inkling he would be kingpin on the campus in less than 20 years. Yet this former member of Old Nassau's varsity soccer squad (second left, second row) takes over as president this June. Dr. Goheen, who will be one of the youngest prexies in the University history, has been assistant professor of classics at Princeton since 1950. In undergraduate days he was a keen athlete and president of the Intramural Athletic Association. Father of six children, Dr. Goheen now devotes many Sundays to coaching a group of 9-year-olds in football, plays tennis or golf when the weather allows, turns to squash when winter sets in.
