Benjamin Jowett

Benjamin Jowett
April 15th, 1817 to October 1st, 1893

Today is the birthdate of Benjamin Jowett [1817], English classical scholar, probably best known for his popular and scholarly translations of Plato's dialogs. I well-remember my two volume boxed set [$15.00] that I purchased in my undergraduate days.
