William Watson Goodwin (1831–1912) earned his BA from Harvard in 1851 and received his PhD in 1855 from the University of Göttingen, Germany. He tutored at Harvard for four years before becoming the Eliot professor of Greek. He resigned in 1901, after 41 years, and joined Harvard’s board of overseers in 1903. Throughout his life he held numerous leadership positions in the classical field. He was director of the American School for Classical Studies at Athens and president of the American Philological Association. He was also a member of the Imperial Archaeological Institute of Germany, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Massachusetts Historical Society. As an educator, he changed the classical field from an obligatory and mechanical exercise to a genuine literary study. His two most important works are A Greek Grammar and Syntax of the Moods and Tenses of the Greek Verb.
