Princeton Goes Co-Ed -- April Fool's Day, 1927
A front-page article in The Daily Princetonian, Princeton's student paper, revealed that the all-male university would begin admitting women by 1929. Four hundred women were expected to be in the first co-ed class.
The decision was made in order to qualify for a $20 million gift that was contingent upon admitting women.
Princeton actually went co-ed in 1969.
