Yale University

Yale University announced that a residential college that was named for a 19th century alumnus and former U.S. vice president has been renamed.

John C. Calhoun was a defender of slavery and a former U.S. senator and vice president. He no longer exists. He has been replaced by Grace Murray Hopper. Have you heard of her?

Yale University, just in passing, was named for Elihu Yale, an American-born British merchant who took part in the slave trade in India. How do you supposed they will deal with that?
