Bayard Taylor (1825-1878)

Bayard Taylor was an American traveler and man of letters. He wrote for newspapers and magazines and published poetry and novels. Taylor was appointed secretary of legation under the U.S. minister to Russia at St. Petersburg in 1862. From 1870 to 1877 Taylor was a nonresident professor of German literature at Cornell University. His ambitious metrical translation of Goethe's "Faust" earned him a position as U.S. minister to Germany in 1878, when he died.
