A New Volume of Wide Interest

CHARLES W. ELIOT

PRESIDENT OF HARVARD UNIVERSITY

(May 19, 1869-May 19, 1909)

By DR. EUGEN KÜHNEMANN

Professor of Philosophy in the University of Breslau

[graphic]

Professor Kühnemann has written an account of President Eliot's life work as the chief executive of Harvard University. The study is marked by the thoroughness of plan and detail that characterize the work of German scholars.

The first chapter describes in brief the college at the time of Dr. Eliot's inauguration, and then follows an account of the expansion of the elective system in college development, and of the growth of the professional schools into branches of the first real university in America. Professor Kühnemann then takes up Dr. Eliot's educational and social philosophy, his life, public activities, and personality.

Although much has been published during the last few months on Dr. Eliot and his work, it has been of a journalistic character, and no one has undertaken to put into book form a thoughtful, careful, and dispassionate study of the influence of Harvard's great president on American education. Professor Kühnemann has spent two terms in Cambridge, being connected with the department of Philosophy as exchange professor.

The Autobiography

of

Nathaniel S. Shaler

WITH A SUPPLEMENTARY MEMOIR

BY HIS WIFE

This rarely interesting life will take place among the more notable American memoirs. Professor Shaler was a man of extraordinary personal qualities aside from his prominence in science and education. His fascinating recollections show him to be one of the most vivid of writers, and make a remarkable book.

Although the Autobiography was not finished at the time of Professor Shaler's death, Mrs. Shaler has found it possible to carry it on to completion, and by the aid of a vast mass of letters, note-books, etc., etc., to tell the final chapters of the story practically in Professor Shaler's own words, so that the book as a whole has the unity and vitality that come from the complete and direct expression of a rich and varied personality.

Large octavo, gilt top, with many illustrations. $4.00 net. Postage 25 cents.
