Olivia Pound

Olivia Pound graduation portrait

All of the Pound siblings were classically educated from a young age, and they all ended up persuing different careers. Olivia Pound was a graduate student at the University from 1895 to 1897, and later taught history.  In her Outline for the Study of Greek Literature, to Accompany a Course in Greek History, she advocated for classical curriculum within the disciplines of English and History. Since they are both humanities disciplines (just like Classics), their lessons can often be taught similarly within the different disciplines.
