Assistant Professor of Greek, Wake Forest College, 1866-70
Professor of Greek, Wake Forest College, 1870-1928
He was second to none in the accuracy and precision of his scholar-
ship, his keen appreciation of the niceties of the Greek language and
the beauties of its literature. During the entire period of his teaching,
which embraced all but the last two years of his professorship, he was
able to inspire his students with much of his own passion and
enthusiasm, with the result that Greek has continued to occupy a place
of distinction in Wake Forest College such as it has in hardly another
institution in the land.---G. W. Paschal, in "Royall Memorial" number
