Excerpt from Yale Insurance Lectures, Vol. 2: Being the Lecture on Fire, Marine, Accident, Liability and Steam Boiler Insurance; Also on Corporate Surety Bonding, Government Insurance, and Insurance Law; Delivered in the Insurance Course at Yale University, Year 1903-4 Yale University, in launching a course in insurance on lines t previously attempted, gave official recognition of the profound importance and significance of the subject, considered both from the standpoint of society and the individual. Insurance had before been taught both at Yale and at other universities, but never on lines which entered so thoroughly and so deeply into the history, philosophy, ecomy and science of the subject. In opening this course, Yale broke new ground and the lectures which formed the main body of the course in insurance, of the Academic year 1903-4, brought together an amount of material on this subject which had never before been gathered in any such form or to any such extent. This is said in full recognition of the large and most valuable body of insurance literature already in existence. It is the point of view taken in the preparation of this material which gives it its peculiar value to the students of the subject and to those who are interested in it either as a business or as a profession. The object of the course was to give the student such a kwledge of the fundamental principles of insurance and such a view of its extent and its methods of operation as would enable him to judge accurately of its power as an ecomic force, and would further prepare him for wise action when the duties of his profession or business required him to guard himself or others from possible loss. It was further intended to furnish a broad, preliminary view of insurance for those who intended to enter it later, either as a business or as a profession.
