Russell Meiggs

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Russell Meiggs (20 October 1902 – 24 June 1989) was a British ancient historian. He did extensive research on the Roman port city of Ostia.

He was educated at Christ's Hospital and Keble College, Oxford. He was Fellow and Tutor in Ancient History at Balliol College, Oxford, from 1939 to 1970. During World War II he worked at the Ministry of Supply in the timber section. Meiggs served as Prefect of the College from 1945 until 1969. His eccentricity was legendary. His papers are in the Balliol College library.

He met his future wife, the historian Pauline Gregg (1909-2006), at the Ministry of Supply and they married in 1941.

He was a periodic visiting professor in the Classics Department at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania, in the 1970s, where he taught (among other classes) Greece in the Fifth Century (BCE) and Roman Ostia.
