Abstract/ Summary

The lecture hall was abuzz as the students filed into Sandy Caron's class. They knew there would be a guest lecturer, but few were prepared for who walked through the door. At first the woman appeared shy and hesitant. Dressed in a long calico gown and bonnett, she told the students she was there to "acquaint" them with the ways of family life as she knew them - back in the 1700s.
