Mr. Hammill, who lives in Omaha,
Neb., spent most of his life up to the
time of his retirement in 1935 in the
field of education. His main work
has been in the fields of history, eco-
nomics and commerce.

which converted him into a power-
ful democrat. He discovered that the
basis for Jefferson's political and
ethical philosophy lay in the books
which contributed to his education.
Led to an investigation of the in-
Aiuence of great books "in the intel-
lectual life of society and individu-
als," Mr. Hammill became convinced
"that Voltaire was right when he
said 'Books rule the world.'"

donated a collection of Jeffersonia to
