John Stuart Blackie (1809-1895)

John Stuart Blackie was a writer, college professor, and one of the better known Scotsmen of the nineteenth century. As a young man he spent three years in Germany and Italy, during which he acquired a great love of German culture and Greek language. Blackie refused to enter the church - his logical path - and became a lawyer. In 1839 he received his first professorship in the humanities at Marischal College and in 1860 was named Chair of Greek at the University of Edinburgh. Blackie wrote books on German culture and Scottish song.
