Course in the History of Crime.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

History 29, the new half course to be given during the second half-year by Professor Beale, will trace the history of crime in England and America from the thirteenth century to the present time. Among the topics to be considered are the domestic life of the common people, police methods, the amount and kind of crime prevailing at different periods, conditions of trial, methods of punishment, state of the prisons, and the history of certain celebrated crimes in the past century. The course will have one two-hour session each week, devoted to lectures and discussion, and weekly reports on the investigation of special topics will be required. Students electing the course will be expected to have such a knowledge of methods of investigation as can be gained from History 9 or 13. At the first meeting of the course, which will be held this morning at 11 o'clock in Upper Austin, the regular hour for meetings will be announced.
