Alumni News: Timothy P. Perry

Timothy P. Perry (PhD 2010) spent two years as a lecturer in Classics at Dartmouth College. While there, he was invited to write a chapter on sport in the Early Iron Age for Blackwell’s Companion to Sport and Spectacle in Greek and Roman Antiquity (2014).

Following his time there, Timothy returned to school to complete a Master of Information degree in Library and Information Science at the University of Toronto’s iSchool in 2015. He was also actively involved in the Book History and Print Culture program, helping organize the 2015 colloquium on marginalia, On the Fringes (and in the Margins).

Upon completing his MI, Timothy took up a position as rare book librarian at the University of Missouri. His new job provides plenty of opportunities to practice his Greek and Latin, and he also teaches classes visiting the library from a variety of departments – without having to do any marking. He continues to publish in the field of book history, with recent articles on early depictions of the printing press and facsimiles of Dante Manuscripts in Canadian libraries.
