An important handbook for all persons interested in advanced courses in American universities recently appeared under the title of "Graduate Courses for 1896-97." The publication is authorized by the Federation of Graduate Clubs, and is edited by a corps of twenty-four graduate students, under the direction of C. A. Duniway of the Graduate School. The plan of the Handbook is to present full lists of courses for graduate students to be offered in 1896-97 by twenty-four of the leading universities and colleges.
In addition to lists of courses, the reader will find statements of the academic careers of professors and instructors; special facilities in the various departments; requirements or advanced degrees and for admission to graduate standing; fellowships and scholarships open to such students, and other valuable details. The Handbook is a compilation that will be found useful by every person wishing a convenient, accurate exhibit of graduate instruction in America.
