Richard Beale was actually an alum of my alma mater, Dickinson College, in Carlisle, PA. He was a member of the class of 1838.I am entirely unaware of his ever attending the University of Virginia. I have long been interested in him due to our mutual connection with Dickinson, and I have an extremely high level of confidence that I am 100% correct about this.

In 1835 (into early 1836?), Beale attended most of one session at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. In 1838, he graduated from Law School at the University of Virginia. (sources: www.encyclopediavirginia.org/beale_R_L_T_1819-1893; Students of the University of Virginia, A Semi-centennial Catalogue)

That's really interesting, because Dickinson's records show him as having graduated, Tom.

Eric, it's difficult to explain, but of course he might enter with the Class of 1838 since some colleges in that era conferred bachelor (A.B.) degrees in three years, and be listed as such without having actually graduated. The University of Virginia catalog indicates an enrollment in 1837. Interesting that the Encyclopedia Virginia determined that he attended "most of one session" at Dickinson, a specificity that must trace to some source - perhaps Beale himself?
