I have of late fallen into a deplorable habit of sleeping into the morning. It will be good for me to get up today, and it will be small effort. Dr. Allport, who gives Social Ethics 8b, is talking at 9 o'clock in Emerson A on "Judging Intelligence from Photographs." Dr. Allport has been interested in intelligence tests and his lecture on the possibility of photographs as psychological data should be well worth hearing.
One of the most maligned of poets and at the same time one of the most revered is to be Professor Murdock's subject in English 33 this morning at 10 o'clock in Harvard 2. Longfellow is the poet without whom home is not home and a library is just a collection of books. Yet that this is far from being the true estimate of his merit seems the truth. It is claimed that he was a scholar, a true virtuoso, and a legitimate claimant to the deanship of American letters. I will seek the truth on this matter.
Professor Ripley, he whose name has so recently cast terror into the heart of Wall Street, is to talk on pools and trade associations this morning in Economics 4b. His lecture, which will be in Emerson D at 11 o'clock, has besides the reputation of Professor Ripley the appeal of a subject which runs Arabic philology a close second in my ignorance, but which sounds vastly interesting.
That strange character of the early Renaissance whose versatility rivals that of Leonardo, Leone Battista Alberti, is to be the subject of Professor Edgell's lecture at noon today in Robinson Hall to his students and vagabonds in Fine Arts 7a. Alberti was one of the foremost organists of his day: he wrote Latin verses with ease and skill: his Della Statua is one of the earliest critical works on sculpture, as is his De Pictura on the art of painting. It is his fame as an architect, however, that has best survived, and it is of this phase of his many sided activity that Professor Edgell will speak.
