LEVERETT, Frederick Percival, scholar, born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, 11 September, 1803; died in Boston, 6 October, 1836. He was a descendant of Sir John Leverett, noticed above. He was graduated at Harvard in 1821, and the same year appointed usher in the Boston Latin school, of which he became principal, and he afterward opened a private classical school. He published editions of Caesar's "Commentaries," Juvenal, and the "Viri Rotate," to be used as text books in schools. His principal work was his lexicon of the Latin language, which was compiled from the lexicons of Facciolati, Forcellini, Scheller, Lunemann, and Freund. The last sheet of this work went to press on the morning of his death (Boston, 1837).
