General note

Series Note

The material in this Series consists mainly of material which Magruder collected for his Torts course. He used partial chapters and cases from the following three casebooks: Seavey and Thurston: CASES ON TORTS; Seavey, Keeton and Keeton: CASES AND MATERIALS ON THE LAW OF TORTS; Ames and Smith: CASES ON THE LAW OF TORTS (SUPPLEMENTARY by Seavey, Thurston and Magruder). Some of the chapters which Magruder used are unidentified; possibly they are from his own casebook (with Ames): CASES ON THE LAW OF TORTS.

Additional material which Magruder included are pages from the Federal Reporter, newpaper clippings, and handwritten notes and comments.

The material in this Series is in exceptionally poor physical condition, and needs to be handled with great care. Period covered is presumably 1920 to 1939, although very few items are dated.
