He goes on to explain in graphic detail how to copulate properly, thus saving society from "idiots, sapheads, imbeciles, and all mediocre children." George Washington Kirchwey (1855-1942) was professor of law, sometimes Dean, at Columbia from 1891 to 1916. He was warden of Sing-Sing Prison from 1915-1916. A Progressive, he was active in several reform activities; he was at various times president of the New York Peace Society, the American Peace Society, the New York Society of Criminal Law and Sociology, and the American Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology. This item must have been meant to embarrass him or to show him up as a know-it-all/busy-body. His name was spelled wrong, perhaps to avoid legal liability if the person responsible was somehow discovered. Just two copies on WorldCat, at U.C. Davis and at the Osler Medical Library, McGill University, where his name is also spelled wrong (Kirckway). A little browned, with some chipping to the fore-edges. In Very Good condition.
