alumni relations, and social events.  This year, the committee planned a number of activities for Fellows outside of the Urban Seminar, including a half-day retreat held at the home of Peter Horne '55 last November.  In December, current and former fellows were invited to attend a Bulls Game, hosted by John W. Rogers Jr., '80, Chairman and CEO of Ariel Capital Management.  The committee also redesigned the PIP – Chicago webpage to provide more information to potential Project 55 applicants and better display the amenities of the great city of Chicago.

The 2007 – 2008 Project 55 Fellows with placements in Chicago are listed below on the left.  The alumni listed in the right-hand column are serving as mentors.  Project 55 is grateful to them for their support of the fellows.

Edifying and Entertaining…Princeton Tigers of Chicago and the MIT Beavers gathered on November 12 for a sold-out event exploring the greatest maps of the world.  From ancient history to such provocative “maps” as an English glove impressed with London streets to help a Lady discretely navigate the city, this exhibition hosted by the Field Museum of Natural History was the premier and anchor show to the Chicago-wide Festival of Maps throughout the fall season.  Nearly 200 Tigers and Beavers enjoyed a private viewing of the exhibition, followed by an international dinner and cocktail buffet, and ended with an engrossing lecture by Yale art history Ph.D. and co-curator of the exhibition, Diane Dillon of the Newberry Library.  Princeton alumnus and Field Museum President John McCarter '60 graciously welcomed Princeton and MIT alumni, while introducing Princeton University Trustee Dennis Keller '63, who attended the special evening and shared his enthusiasm for the University.
