I was asked by The Princeton Packet to cover the old University of Princeton’s Witherspoon St. location as the last of it’s patients were being transported to the new Plainsboro, NJ building.
The Packet’s staff photographer, Phil McAuliffe was at the new building photographing the patients coming in. The reporter that I was paired with was Charley Faulkenburg, while Phil was paired with reporter, Victoria Hurley-Schubert. Cal Killeen was the Editor.
This was a large 12-page spread insert for all of The Packet Publication papers and was a large project for us photographers, the reporters and editors. I was honored and am thankful for being a part of this assignment.
I have to say that this was no small plan and the organization of the staff and volunteers and the many EMT’s made this run very smoothly and effortlessly.
