NOTES

William Helmbold's teaching and scholarship reflected the broad range of his interests and the depth and extent of his knowledge. He was truly doctus sermonis utriusque linguae. Bentley and Markland, Housman and Jachmann were as instantly accessible to him as were Homer and Horace, Plato and Propertius and Plutarch. A sense of joy marked his teaching; to his scholarship he brought an expertise generously shared with students and colleagues alike.
