MRS. C. F. WELLS, President.
Incorporated 1866 by Special Act of the New York Legislature.
The Annual Assembly of the American Institute of Phrenology will take place on Wednesday, September 5th, with an evening reception of students and friends. The course will consist of about one hundred and twenty-five lectures, and will extend over six weeks. Three lectures are given each day, excepting Saturday, when a review of the week's work is held.
The object of the course is to explain the fundamental principles of Phrenology, Physiognomy, Psychology, Physiology, Anatomy, Hygiene, Heredity, Foods, the Races, the Temperaments, Brain Dissection, the Objections and Proofs of the Old and New Phrenology, Mental Therapeutics, the Choice of Pursuits, Marriage, the History of Phrenology, Animal Magnetism, Hypnotism, Psycho-Physiology, Elocution, Oratory and Voice Culture, and Jurisprudence.
Last year the students had the advantage of the lectures of WILLIAM HICKS, M.D., a physician and medical professor, who has had practical experience among students on Physiology and Anatomy, Insanity, Brain Dissection and Clinical Work in Treating the Insane, which proved of great interest to all members of the class. The Institute will have the same assistance this year.
The Institute course is recommended to business men and women who have daily to come in contact with their employees and customers.
It provides help to all professional men and women who have to educate the masses. It proves a guide to parents and teachers, as well as private individuals.
For terms of tuition, etc., apply to the Secretary, care of Fowler & Wells Co., No. 27 East 21st Street, New York City.
