Phelps Lectures on Early American History delivered at New York University in 1932, this important study locates the principles of the United States Constitution in the political philosophy of colonial New England, Puritan practices and the ideals of English personal rights and limited government common to all of the colonies. Andrew C. McLaughlin [1861-1947] received bachelor degree and law degrees from the University of Michigan. He taught Latin and history at Michigan until 1906, when he joined the history faculty at the University of Chicago.
