### Abstract:

Tucker tells what he regards to be the most important contribution o f the Princeton mathematics community: the training of graduate students (to be productive researchers and to acquire what Tucker calls "mathematical statesmanship"), the production of mathematical publications (such as Annals of Mathematics and Annals of Mathematical Studies), post-doctoral training (some 50 National Research Fellows in the 1920s and 1930s chose to work at Princeton), and the research of faculty members (especially in geometry, topology, and logic).
