J. Everett Brady spent his entire teaching career as Professor of Latin at Smith College. A courtly and somewhat eccentric southern gentleman, much revered by his students, he was also a shrewd administrator under whose tutelage the departments of Greek and Latin flourished. On his retirement the John Everett Brady Prize Fund was created in his honor.
