Excerpt from Society and Prisons: Some Suggestions for a New Penology

Feeling, as I have long felt, that citizenship has no responsibility greater or more pressing than the state prison, I gladly accepted the distinguished honor conferred upon me by the President and Fellows of Yale. I have a double gratification in doing so. First: because I knew personally and highly esteemed Mr. Dodge, hav ing sat by his side as a delegate to the Sound Money Conferences at Indianapolis in 1897 - 8; and secondly: because the honor is not altogether a personal one, but is bestowed, through the lecturer, upon Yale's great sister University I should hardly be human, if I did not indulge in a considerable measure of pride in being the first graduate of Harvard to be accorded the very great privilege of giving the Dodge Lectures.
