Collection Description

Biographical Note

Thomas Hopkins English (1895-1992) was born in Dow, Illinois. He attended Blackburn College and completed his education at Princeton University (Litt.B, 1918; A.M., 1922; Ph.D., 1924). He married Rachel Marshall Willet (1897-1975) in June 1924. Prior to entering Princeton's graduate school, he served a brief period in the army. He was an instructor in English at the University of Wisconsin in 1920-1921, taught at Yale in 1924-1925 and at Princeton summer school in 1923-1927. He left Yale in 1925 to accept an assistant professorship in English at Emory University. He remained at Emory for the remainder of his academic career becoming an associate professor in 1928 and a full professor in 1933. He was named Professor Emeritus upon his retirement in 1964. He led an active professional life during his Emory career. He chaired the Department of English, 1942-1952, served on many committees, and edited Emory Sources and Reprints, 1943-1958, and Emory University Quarterly, 1945-1964. After his retirement, however, he continued his long association with the university by involving himself in library concerns, as well as in documenting the university's history in prose and verse.

After his retirement, Dr. English wrote Emory University 1915-1965, A Semicentennial History (Atlanta, 1966), as part of the university's 50th Anniversary celebration. In 1970 he played a major role in the organization of the Friends of the Library and served as editor and contributor to Ex Libris, an occasional publication of the Friends. Since that time he has continued to take an interest in holdings of the Robert W. Woodruff Library and has written a brief history of the library. Dr. English died of respiratory failure at Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta, 8 January 1992. He was buried next to his beloved wife in the Princeton, New Jersey, Cemetery.
