are as follows: Latin Gram, and Lessons, Caesar,
Cicero, Sallust, Virgil, Livy, Horace, Tacitus, Greek
Grammar and Lessons, Anabasis, Homer, Sophocles,
Demosthenes, and Plato. He has carefully studied
the methods of Ascham, Ollendorf, Rosenthal, Har¬
per, and others, and has devised methods of his own,
by which he teaches Greek and Latin with great ease,
and enrobes them in living beauty. The Chair of
Ancient Languages of the V N. & C. I. is one of the
most thorough and practical in our colleges.
To him is mostly due the_ credit of building the
Latin and Greek department of the Institute. From
'85 to '87, he taught Latin Gram, and Lessons, Caesar
and Cicero. From '87 to the present time, he has

Grammar and Lessons were taught during '84-'85 be¬
fore his connection with the Institute. Since '85, he
has taught every Greek class that has been in the in¬
stitution. The Board, at his suggestion, purchased a
classic library for the use of his classes, and he has
fittingly adorned his room with beautiful Latin, Greek,
and Hebrew mottoes.
