The late Professor Kevin Herbert (1921-2015) began teaching classics at Washington University in St. Louis in 1962. Professor Herbert served as curator of the Wulfing Coin Collection from 1968 to 1994 and served as chair classics from 1982 until his retirement. He was named professor emeritus in 1992 but continued to teach, primarily in University College, until 2008.

  • Alexander & Hellenistic World – Survey;
  • Cities of Sicily – Peloponnesian War;
  • Roman Myths, Heroes, Buildings.
