Gift from Dr. Osler of Oxford


The College Library has just received from Dr. Osler, of Oxford, photographs of early Commencement Theses and Quaestiones which were found in the Hunterian Museum in Glasgow.

The Commencement Theses are for the years 1643, 1646, 1647, 1653, and 1678. Of three of these, the only hitherto known copies are those in the collection of the Massachusetts Historical Society.

The "Quaestiones Discutiendlae" or the programs for conferring the master's degree, are of the years 1653 and 1658. Both years were lacking in the Harvard collection, which is a remarkably complete one, and no copies are recorded as existing elsewhere.
