Biographical sketch by Deborah E. Kamen

Born in Paotingfu, China, on 6 May 1906, Richmond Lattimore graduated from Dartmouth in 1926 and received an A.B. from Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar at Christ Church in 1932. He took his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois in 1934.

In 1935, Lattimore joined the Bryn Mawr faculty as an Assistant Professor of Greek. He was appointed Associate Professor in 1941, and became Paul Shorey Professor of Greek in 1948. Between 1943 and 1946, Lattimore was absent from Bryn Mawr, serving as a lieutenant in the Navy. He was a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Chicago in 1947 and at Columbia in 1948 and 1950. At Johns Hopkins in 1956, he was the Percy Turnbull Memorial Lecturer on Poetry. In 1961, he gave Lord Northcliffe Lectures upon invitation at University College of the University of London. He was Visiting Professor at the University of Toronto in 1966, and at UCLA in 1974.

Widely honored as a scholar, poet, and translator of Greek literature, Lattimore was a recipient of a Rockefeller Post-war Fellowship in 1946, and a Fulbright Research Fellowship for study in Greece. Lattimore was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, the National Institute of Arts and Letters, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, the American Philological Association, and the Archaeological Institute of America. In addition, he was a Fellow of the American Academy at Rome and an Honorary Student at Christ Church, Oxford.

The son of David and Margaret Barnes Lattimore, he married Alice Bockstahler in 1935, with whom he had two sons, Steven and Alexander. In 1984, he was elected a Fellow of the Academy of American Poets and received the $10,000 annual Fellowship Award. Due to his death in February 1984, only $2500 was awarded.
