Bernard Christian Steiner notebooks
Scope and Contents
The collection consists of three notebooks from courses Steiner attended at Hopkins. The material covered includes lectures by Daniel Coit Gilman on charities, Elgin Ralston Lovell Gould on the family, Woodrow Wilson on the administration of the state, and an unnamed lecturer on English philology. Gilman's lectures on charities were presented to a social science course in 1888-1889. Gould's lectures were also part of the social science course that year, and Steiner's notes are the only known record of his remarks. Gould was a well-known social reformer; his lectures clearly outline his beliefs. Woodrow Wilson was a lecturer at Hopkins from 1887-1898. Two of the notebooks contain notes on Wilson's lectures; the third contains notes on Gilman's, Gould's and the lecture on English philology.
