Excerpt

The articles contained in this volume have been selected from among the papers, published and unpublished, left by Professor Hadley, and are put forth by his family and friends. He died on the 14th of November, 1872, in the fifty-second year of his age. He had been for twenty-seven years an instructor in Yale College, entering its service as tutor in 1845, being appointed assistant professor of Greek in 1848, and succeeding President Woolsey in the principal charge of that department in 1851. A sketch of his life, with an estimate of his character as a man and as a scholar, is given by President Porter in the New Englander for January, 1873, and has also been issued as a pamphlet, accompanied by an account of his early studies, drawn up by himself many years ago, and by a nearly complete list of his literary productions, with the times and places of their composition and publication.

IV., on Bekker's Digammated Homer, in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy, vol. i., 1866; Arts. VI. and VII., on Greek Accent and Greek Pronunciation in the tenth century, and Art. XV., on English Vowel Quantity, in the Transactions of the American Philological Association, 1869-72; Art.
