Everything is the product of one universal creative effort. There is nothing dead in Nature. Everything is organic and living, and therefore the whole world appears to be a living organism.

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.
