On Monday afternoon at the Woman’s Club, Miss Orie Latham Hatcher will deliver a lecture on “The Rise and Development of the English Novel.” Miss Hatcher is a woman of unusual intellectual attainments and great interest is felt in her first appearance here since taking her Ph. D. degree at the University of Chicago last winter, when she was one of three students, and the only woman to gain this distinction.

It will be remembered that Miss Hatcher is a Vassar graduate and has the degree of B. A. from that college, and of B. L. from Richmond College. She held the chair of English at the Woman’s College for some years, and her work there was distinguished for its thoroughness as well as for its high intellectual qualities. Later she went to Chicago for a special course of study at the University, and having accomplished an incredible amount of work in the time allowed, she took this degree so rarely attained by women.

And with all her learning, she is still thoroughly womanly and unaffected, and her afternoon at the club promises to be one of peculiar interest and pleasure.

The lecture is at 5 o’clock.
