In 1922, he also gave a series of public Lowell lectures on relativity. A. (then called "the Southern Branch of the University of California"), and edited them into a book entitled The Origin, Nature, and Influence of Relativity (Macmillan, 1925). It was not until 1927 that he finally published in book form his deep AMS colloquium lectures, in a book Dynamical Systems, which omitted many of these topics which he had presented orally seven years earlier.

D. 46 In the comfortable and well-stocked Lowell House library, I became acquainted with the difficulty of defining "probability" rigorously. But above all, in the one room departmental library funded by the visiting committee, I discovered Miller, Blichfeldt and Dickson's book on finite groups, and soon became fascinated by the problem of determining all groups of given finite order.
