Robert P. Casey, Classical Scholar
And Traveler, Is Professor
ARRIVAL IS UNXPECTED
Arriving in town unexpectedly this
week-end, Dr. Robert P. Casey, Euro-
pean traveler, classical scholar extra-
ordinary, and modern thinker, will
speak this morning from the pulpit of
St. Andrew's on "The Effect of Modern
Thought on Morals," and he will be;
available for informaldiscussion to-
night at Harris hall.
From Harvard where he took his
undergraduate work, Dr. Casey went
to Jesus College, Cambridge, for his
Ph.D. While there he had the good
fortune to get on the track of an an-
cientNew Testament manuscript in
Greek which had been lost since 1840.
With characteristic initiative he hast-
ened without even the formality of an
introduction to the old country house
where the document was located and
being taken for an Englishman on ac-
count of his Harvard accent, he se-
cured permission to search the library.
He found the missing manuscript, and
was given permission by the owner
to take the priceless document away
with him. It now reposes in the
library of Jesus College.
In further pursuance of his class-
ical studies, Dr. Casey spent several
years living in Greek monasteries in
Athos, and Patmos, Asia Minor, trans-
lating the works of Athenasius. In-
heriting Puritan instincts from Is
Boston family, Casey had never
touched any alcoholic drink, and be-
cause of the impossibility of obtaining
anything but wine to drink in Asia
Minor, he had to be broken in to
wine-bibbing amid much hilarity by
his classmates at Cambridge.
Dr. Casey holds, according to Rev.
Tom Harris, local rector, "the world's
best job." For four months of the
year he is professor of classics at the
University of Cincinnati, and the rest
of his time he spendstravelling on the
European continent. He is hailedaby
the Englishman Prof. Burkitt, and
Kirsop Lake, two leading luminaries
in the field, as the most brilliant young
exponent of modern thought.
