William Smith

Sir William Smith (chief editor) was a Victorian tour de force whose name will forever be associated with the re-birth of classics in Britain. Lexicographer, classical and biblical scholar, he wrote, edited and contributed to many works of reference and textbooks, including the three large classical dictionaries which made his name a household word. From 1853 to 1869 he was classical examiner to the University of London, where he became a member of the Senate, and he was for twenty-five years editor of the prestigious Quarterly Review. A member of the Royal Commission on Copyright, he was knighted in 1892.
