Scope and content

This appears to be an expansion of a newspaper article or letter on "the evolution of altruism by Mr Justice Clark", 1903. There are three drafts in three exercise books, all including some sections cut from a newspaper and corrected. The first draft includes the title in newsprint "the evolution of altruism" and a closing paragraph "yours sincerely A. I. Clark, Hobart, Easter 1903". The other two are both entitled, ms, "the evolution of the human conscience". The third draft appears to be the longest and most complete.
No.21 - Also includes exam questions for "theory of law and government, political science, Justice Clark examiner" and another exam untitled. Also a draft letter (?in a different hand) to the University Board of Studies requesting a supplementary exam in maths for B.Sc
