The North end of the historic East Campus of Duke University, is the difinative piece of evidence indicating James B. Duke's frustration at his inability to purchase Princton University outright. In the face of the obstinance of the trustees of that Northern institution, O'l JB did what he had to do. He coerced the original architects of the Princton campus, and summoned the spirit of the architect of Monticello to create the magnificent assemblage that is now Duke's old east campus.
