In 1974 I left graduate school and was looking for a job. I saw an advertisement in National Review seeking an editor of Prospect, the magazine of the Concerned Alumni of Princeton. I had written a lot for the Daily Dartmouth as an undergraduate and thought the job might be a good fit for me. I followed up and was invited down to Princeton for an interview with CAP executive director Harding Jones. Just about all I remember of the experience is my subsequent disappointment in not getting the job.
Today I feel better about not getting the job because, thanks to Terry Eastland’s article in the new issue of the Weekly Standard, I learn that I lost the job to him. Eastland’s informative article is “Inside Concerned Alumni of Princeton.”
