ENGL 52.11 Daniel Webster and the Dartmouth College Case

Two hundred years ago, in 1819, Daniel Webster argued a case in front of the Supreme Court defending his alma mater, Dartmouth College, against the predations of the State of New Hampshire. The Court found in favor of Dartmouth, which preserved the College as a private entity. Perhaps more importantly, it also laid the legal foundation for the modern economy, where corporate firms are to some extent free of state control. This course aims for a comprehensive understanding of the Dartmouth College Case and Daniel Webster by integrating the perspectives of American studies, history, political theory, and law.
