Excerpt from American Journal of Archaeology, 1908, Vol. 12
With Professor John Williams White, Professor Seymour edited the College Series of Greek Authors, and since 1887 he was one of the American editors of the Classical Review. Among the works of which he was the author,... or which received his scholarly editorial care, are Selected Odes of Pindar Introduction to the Language and Verse of Homer Homer's Iliad (books I - VI in College Series, 1887 Introduction and Vocabulary to School Odyssey (eight books, Homeric Vocabulary and a School Iliad (books I - VI, His last work, Life in the Homeric Age which appeared only three months before his death, is a monu ment of learning, which bears eloquent testimony to his long and loving study of the Homeric poems.
Professor Seymour was not primarily an archaeologist, but his grasp of the scientific, as well as the administrative prob lems which presented themselves to him as President of the Archaeological Institute was remarkable. His judgment was sure and sane, his knowledge broad, and his comprehension of local questions, and circumstances quick and sympathetic. His death inflicts a great loss upon the Institute.
As a man, Professor Seymour was singularly lovable. His manner was far from effusive, and may even have appeared cold to those who knew him only slightly, but those who knew him well felt the true and deep friendliness which lay behind his calm and quiet mien. He had a keen sense of humor, but was never led away by it to say what might pain the feelings of any one. He never forced his advice upon others, but was always ready to give it when requested, and his advice was carefully thought out, kindly expressed, and Wise. He had great regard for the opinions of others, even when he disagreed with them. As a scholar, a teacher, an adviser, and a friend, he will be grievously missed by all with whom he has been associated.
