This book of notes on the principles of logic is
believed to have been written by James Madison during his junior
and senior year at Princeton. Madison completed his degree in
just two years but remained at the college an additional six months
to study Hebrew and theology under Dr. John Witherspoon. In 1772,
Madison returned to his native Virginia embarking on a brilliant
political career that culminated in his election to the presidency
of the United States.
