From the website announcement:

Join the Department of Humanities at its October Charles Pryor Lecture Series on Thursday, October 18, 2018, 3:30- 5 p.m. in Grace Jacobs rm#523, as Professor Dr. Roger Stritmatter, discuss an original new Herman Melville manuscript.

With four previous studies by the University of Buffalo Cedar-Fox forensics lab already supporting the attribution, after nine years of study Stritmatter has now published a detailed forensic study of the document in the 2017 (27) issue of the peer-reviewed journal of the Association of Forensic Document Examiners (, Journal of Forensic Document Examination.

Stritmatter will discuss this unique literary discovery, October 18, 2018, but hopes to bring the evidence to the larger community of Melville scholars at the 12th International Melville Society Conference at New York University June 17-20, 2019.

This power point lecture with discussion will illustrate forensic evidence that the Hydrarchos MS is Melville’s work, consider how it expresses themes appearing in his early anonymous work in the popular humor magazine Yankee Doodle as well as in his later masterworks like Moby Dick, and document the circumstances under which it was written and mailed to Melville’s brother in April, 1846.
