Synopsis by Hal Erickson

A prestigious university is the site for skullduggery when a noted economist is murdered while working on a plan to eliminate all forms of poverty. Arriving on the campus of Saint Bodes University to investigate, Steed and Emma discover that the place is festooned with suspicious characters, student and teacher alike. Though the episode scores points on its thrill contect, the highlight is a costume-party sequence wherein Emma is fetchingly garbed as Robin Hood (green tights and all). Written by Martin Woodhouse, "A Sense of History" was initially broadcast in England on March 12, 1966, and made its American TV debut on June 20 of that same year.
