Viewing Charles B. Elliott: "An Outline of the Law of Insurance" (1895).
In 1895, Charles Burke Elliott was serving his first year on the District Court of Hennepin County, Minnesota. The previous three years he was on the Minneapolis Municipal Court. The day-to-day work of a trial judge did not consume Elliott, for he was a man of boundless energy. He was a prolific author of books and journal articles, some of which he wrote while a Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota College of Law. There he taught insurance law, among other courses. To assist his students, he prepared and distributed an outline of the principles of insurance law. It came to the attention of West Publishing Company which published "An Outline of the Law of Insurance" subtitled "An Outline of a Course of Lectures Delivered to Students of the College of Law, University of Minnesota" in 1895. It is posted here. The following year, West published his "An Outline of the Law of Insurance, With Illustrative Cases."
