[The Negro past] of rope, fire, torture, castration, infanticide, rape; death and humiliation; fear by day and night, fear as deep as the marrow of the bone; doubt that he was worthy of life, since everyone around him denied it; sorrow for his women, for his kinfolk, for his children, who needed his protection, and whom he could not protect; rage, hatred and murder, hatred for white men so deep that it often turned against him and his own, and made all love, all trust, all joy impossible.

Robert Francis Goheen

Robert Francis Goheen (born 1919, Vengurla, India) is an American academic, educated at The Lawrenceville School and graduating from Princeton University in 1940. He was an intelligence officer in the United States Army during World War II, reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He returned to graduate school at Princeton after the war, earning an M.A. (1947) and Ph.D. (1948) in classics.

Goheen taught classics at Princeton until 1957, when he was appointed the university's 16th president -- the youngest man to assume that position since the 18th century. After his retirement from Princeton in 1972, he was named president of the Council on Foundations and then of the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation. From 1977-80, he was United States Ambassador to India, the country he was born in.
