Princeton historian visits Anatolia

Princeton Historian Molly Greene toured the campus of Anatolia and the American College of Thessaloniki on Wednesday, February 21, as part of a three-day visit to Thessaloniki.

Professor Greene sat with President Giesecke to exchange views on a range of topics, before doing some site-seeing on the upper campus. She looked at historical photographs in Stephens and Macedonia Halls, and saw the German bunker left behind by retreating Nazis in 1945.

She then had lunch with Anatolia and ACT faculty, including ACT's three Hellenists, Maria Kyriakidou, Aigli Brouskou, and Daphne Lamprou.

An expert in Greek society during the Ottoman occupation, Professor Greene was in town to deliver a formal lecture to students of Dimitris Stamatopoulos at the University of Macedonia. She also dined with local Princeton alumni, including Richard Jackson and Peter Baiter, former presidents, respectively, of Anatolia and Pinewood.

Anatolia and ACT have hosted notable personalities from Princeton in the past, including Fred Greenstein, Mark Beissinger, and Thomas Wright.
