The main auditorium in Robertson Hall, home of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, has been renamed for Sir W. Arthur Lewis (1915-1991). This video tribute commemorates Lewis’ life and scholarship: He served on Princeton’s faculty from 1963 to 1983 and was the University’s first black full professor. He received the 1979 Nobel Prize in economic sciences and was knighted in 1963. Film editing: FireRock Productions Executive producer: Elisabeth Hirschhorn Donahue Producer: B. Rose Kelly
