Lectures Notes from Courses on Agency and - Manuscript; Lieghley, I A; Wells, Wi - 1890. 
1890. Lecture Notes Compiled by a Student at the University of Michigan Law School in 1890-1891 [Manuscript]. [Lieghley, I.A.]. [Wells, William P (1831-1891)]. [Lectures Notes from Courses on Agency and Partnership Taught by Prof. Wells]. [Ann Arbor, October 3, 1890-March 4, 1891]. 161 [i.e. 191] pp. Quarto (9" x 6"). Quarter cloth over pebbled paper. Light rubbing to boards, heavier rubbing with some wear to extremities, hinges cracked, binding still intact. Light toning to interior, content in clear hand to rectos and versos of pp. 1-186, occasional annotations to final 28 leaves, including an index, additional annotations to endleaves, newspaper obituary of Prof. Wells affixed to rear endleaf. * This notebook offers an opportunity to "audit" two courses taught at the University of Michigan in the early 1890s by one of its leading professors. These appear to be notes taken in class. Lieghley added an index at a later point. The notes indicate the durability of the lecture format at Michigan, but with some influence from the new case-method system. Lieghley signed the front pastedown and noted his membership in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. The lower part of the page contains a note stating the date of Professor Wells's death. Wells, the Kent Professor of Law, taught at the university from 1874 to 1891. After Thomas M. Cooley, he was the most distinguished member of Michigan's faculty in the late nineteenth century. Little is known about Lieghley. Martindale directories from 1890s and early 1900s indicate that he had a private practice in Detroit.
