GILDEROLEEVE, Basil Lanneau, educator, born in Charleston, South Carolina, 23 October, 1831. He was graduated at Princeton in 1849, and then studied at the universities of Berlin, Bonn, and Gottingen in Germany, taking the degree of Ph.D. at the latter institution in 1853. Soon after his return to the United States he was elected professor of Greek in the University of Virginia, where he remained from 1856 till 1876, also occupying the chair of Latin in that University from 1861 till 1866. On the establishment of the Johns Hopkins University, he was called to the professorship of Greek there, and has since held that appointment. He has received the degrees of LL.D. from William and Mary in 1869, and from Harvard in 1886, and of D. C. L. from the University of the south in 1884. Professor Gilderoleeve has taken high rank as a Greek scholar, and has edited the "American Journal of Philology," which was founded in Baltimore in 1880. He has published six Latin textbooks (New York, 1867-'83) and editions of "Per-sins" (1875); " Justin Martyr" (1877); and the " Olympian and Pythian Odes of Pindar"' (1885).
