Hendrik ("Dirk") A. Hartog, Class of 1921 Bicentennial Professor of the History of American Law at Princeton University, returns to the Law School as part of our celebrated Addison C. Harris Lecture Series. A leading legal historian and former faculty member of the IU School of Law, Hartog will present "Someday All This Will Be Yours: Adoption, Contract, and Duty in Capitalist America" at noon on Monday, April 7, in the Moot Court Room.

The author of Man and Wife in America: a History and Public Property and Private Power: the Corporation of the City of New York in American Law, 1730-1870, Hartog has spent his scholarly life working on the social history of American law, focusing on the difficulties and opportunities that come with studying how broad political and cultural themes have been expressed in ordinary legal conflicts. Hartog's work covers a variety of areas of American legal history, including the history of city life, the history of constitutional rights claims, the history of marriage, and the historiography of legal and constitutional change. He is presently researching inheritance conflicts in 19th- and 20th-century New Jersey and what they reveal about family work relations and caretaking. He received his JD from New York University in 1973 and his PhD in the history of American civilization from Brandeis University in 1982. Before Princeton, Hartog taught at the University of Wisconsin Law School from 1982 to 1992 and at the IU School of Law from 1978 to 1983. At Princeton, Hartog teaches courses in American legal history, family history, and historiography. He is the author and editor of numerous publications in the area of legal history and has been the recipient of a variety of national fellowships and lectureships.

Established in 1946 by a trust from the bequest of India Crago Harris in the name of her husband, Addison C. Harris, the Harris Lecture Series brings prominent scholars to the Law School every year. Past Harris lecturers have included Owen Fiss, Jules Coleman, Guido Calabresi, Frank Michelman, Barbara Babcock, Lawrence Tribe, Robert Bork, and Derrick Bell. In 1956, the Harris Lecture Series and the Indiana Law Journal formed a partnership that has produced some of the most esteemed and influential articles to appear in the journal, including Robert Bork's often-cited Neutral Principles and Some First Amendment Problems, which was drawn from Bork's Harris Lecture in 1971.
