Professor Charles Gillispie’s Legacy of Intellectual Leadership
Charles Gillispie's legacy continues through an endowment for the Charles C. and Emily R. Gillispie Chair in the History of Science and a new Sachs scholarship that brings students from England to study at Princeton.
The Program in History of Science at Princeton University trains students to analyze science, medicine, and technology in historical and cultural context. We are a community of scholars including roughly a dozen core and affiliated faculty members and about twenty graduate students, in addition to undergraduate concentrators and visiting fellows.
