"BENJAMIN BICKLEY ROGERS (1828-1919), English classical scholar, was born at Shepton Montagu, Som., Dec. II 1828. Educated at Wadham College, Oxford, he was elected a fellow of the college in 1852 and was called to the bar in 1856. There he was on the high road to success, when increasing deafness obliged him to retire and devote himself exclusively to literature.
