Witherspoon’s Common Sense
Chapter Six examines the presidency and influence of John Witherspoon at Princeton College. He brought to the school a firm commitment to civic duty and Scottish Common Sense Realism. Witherspoon was followed by his son-in-law, Samuel Stanhope Smith, who was successful in his early presidency, but then lost the trust of the College’s board of trustees and was forced to resign amid student unrest and declining enrollments.
