Sheffield Classical Association
At first the teaching staff changed a great deal. Professor Hutton stayed only for the two terms of the first session and was then followed by F. G. Brabant but he also resigned after a year, and it was then decided to convert the Chair of Classics into one of Literature and History, the Professor of which would undertake such Classical teaching as might be necessary. P. A. Barnett was appointed to the new post . . .
