Collection consists of a series of lectures presented by Professor Albert Lanphier Hammond at Hopkins during the spring semester, 1961. The subject of Hammond's lectures was the Theory of Knowledge. The lectures have been transcribed from tape and are available in the typescript. The original tape is included in the collection, but two of the twelve lectures are not available in typescript.
Collection consists of one bound holographic notebook of philosopher and mathematician, Charles S. Peirce. The notebook contains a catalog of books on logic and scholastic philosophy from Peice's personal library. Peirce also noted the estimated value of each title. Most likely, Peirce compiled the notebook, 1880-1881, at a time when he hoped to find a buyer for his library. Most of the books were acquired by the Johns Hopkins University in 1881.
