Charles Robertson and his wife gave $35m to Princeton university in 1961 with the stated goal 'to strengthen the government of the United States . . . by improving the facilities for the training and education of men and women for government service'.

The gift, one of the largest given to a US university, helped expand Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School
of International Affairs.
Decades later, the Robertsons' heirs maintain that the university has abused the gift because not enough of its graduates have gone into government service. They have sued Princeton and the case is expected to be tried next spring."
