Classics at Berkeley: The First Century 1869-1970
During retirement, the late Joseph Fontenrose (1903-1986) conducted research in the departmental and university archives to compile this account of the Department of Classics at the University of California, Berkeley (and its predecessor departments) during the first hundred years of the university. It contains biographies and bibliographies of the long-term professors and lists of other teachers, and also tells of the development of the curriculum in different periods.
The book was privately published with the support of the Department of Classics History Fund, and a few printed copies are still to be seen in the Department.
This digital edition was prepared in June 2007.
