Professor J. B. Bury, M.A., Litt.D., LL.D., Regius Professor of Modern History at the University of Cambridge, will deliver a lecture on "Herodotus' in the Lecture Room of the Fogg Museum this evening at 8 o'clock. This is the second of his course of six lectures on "The Ancient Greek Historians" delivered under the auspices of the Department of the Classics through the generosity of Mr. Gardiner M. Lane '81.
Professor Bury is one of the most eminent of English historians, his edition of "Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" being regarded by many as the standard. Besides having further edited "Freeman's History of federal Government in Greece and Italy," and "Free-man's Historical Geography," he was written several books on the great historical periods of Greece and Rome.
The lecture will be open to the public.
