Greenwood's written addition to his oral history interview (PMC 16) describes graduate student life at Princeton in the late 1930s, his fellow graduate students, their activities (especially at the Graduate College), and the professors (Luther Eisenhart, Paul Erdos, Witold Hurecwicz, and others). Greenwood writes about the topology seminars at Princeton and about his oral examination (with Solomon Lefschetz) for his Ph.D. Finally, Greenwood describes the H.
