Historical NoteReturn to Top
Frederick Stanley Dunn (August 5, 1872 - Jan. 7, 1937) was born in Eugene, Oregon to Francis Berrian and Christiann Cecilia Dunn. He attended Eugene High School, later pursued his undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon, and completed his graduate degree at Harvard (1894-1895). In 1895, he married Anna Matthews.
Between 1895 and 1898, he served as Professor of Greek and Latin, and Secretary of the Faculty, at Willamette University. While at Willamette, he organized a Classical Club, a Faculty Lecture Course, and was President of the local Epsworth League, the youth organization of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
In 1898, Dunn returned to Eugene and the University of Oregon, where he worked as a professor of Latin and head of the Latin Department. In 1912, Professor Dunn was elected President of the largest regional Classics association, the Classical Association of the Midwest and South (CAMWS). After his retirement in 1935, he began to publish a series of articles, mostly on the subject of coins and Julius Caesar.
While living in Eugene, Professor Dunn was an active member of the Masons, and became a member of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. He died January 7, 1937 in Eugene, Oregon, after a prolonged illness.
