Scope and Content Note

This subseries includes Tom Paulin's monograph, The Day-Star of Liberty, as well as separate sections on his essays and reviews as well as his lectures. Researchers should be aware that sometimes Paulin's lectures grow out of his reviews and essays, and vice-versa, and so there may be some review and essay material filed with certain lectures. In the essay and review section below, individual essays are filed initially, followed by book-length collections of essays.
