In 19th century America, lyceums were institutions that offered public lectures and meetings. The name comes from the Lyceum in ancient Greece where Aristotle conducted a philosophical school. This announcement for the Greenfield Lyceum states that the question for the evening will be "Ought Foreign immigration to this country to be encouraged?" Most immigrants were not embraced when they moved to America. The Gazette & Courier was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from July 20, 1841 until June 24, 1932. Before 1841 the newspaper's name changed quite frequently, with Gazette a frequent part of the title.
