NOTES

Terrell was encouraged by his father to prepare for a career in the law, but he did not enjoy his legal practice and turned to teaching. He served as teacher and administrator in' Virginia and California, then received his undergraduate degree from Stanford in one year. He stayed in California to teach for three more years before going to Harvard for his graduate work. He devoted the remaining 30 years of his life to teaching at the college level in Kentucky. His most significant article treated Hannibal's route across the Alps, but he also wrote much for the popular press. An active man, Terrell mountaineered in Switzerland, hiked in Greece, and at 67 rode on horseback from his home in Lexington, KY, to his family home in Louisa, VA.
