Alfred John Church

"ALFRED JOHN CHURCH (1829-1912), English classical scholar, was born in London Jan. 29 1829. Educated at King's College, London, and Lincoln College, Oxford, he took holy orders and was assistant-master at Merchant Taylors' school for many years. He was professor of Latin at University College, London, from 1880-8 and, in partnership with W. J. Brodribb, translated Tacitus and edited Pliny's Letters; but he is best known by his English re-telling of classical tales and legends for young people ( Stories from Virgil, Stories from Homer, etc.). He wrote much Latin and English verse, and in 5908 published his Memories of Men and Books. He died at Richmond, Surrey, April 27 1912.
