Professor of Classics
Multi autem, qui e castris uisundi aut spoliandi gratia processerant, uoluentes hostilia cadauera, amicum alii, pars hospitem aut cognatum reperiebant; fuere item qui inimicos suos cognoscerent. ita uarie per omnem exercitum laetitia, maeror, luctus atque gaudia agitabantur.

Biography

Gavin Weaire was born in Connecticut, but grew up in Scotland and (mostly) in Ireland. He went to the High School, Dublin, the same secondary school as W. B. Yeats, and therefore has no ambitions to be the most distinguished person from his school. He has taught at Hillsdale College since 2003.

Gavin Weaire has taught a wide variety of courses in classics at Hillsdale, but his particular interests lie especially in prose authors of the first century B.C. His academic publications have mostly been on the Greek rhetor and historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus.
