RICHARDSON, John Fram, educator, born in Vernon, Oneida County, New York, 7 February, 1808; died in Rochester, New York, 10 February, 1868. On his graduation from Madison university in 1835 he was made tutor and then professor of Latin, which place he held till 1850. He accepted in that year the same chair in Rochester university, continuing in this relation until his death. Professor Richardson believed he had discovered the true pronunciation of Latin, as spoken by the ancient Romans, and in the face of much opposition taught it to his pupils. It has since been adopted by many of the foremost educators. He published "Roman Orthoepy: a Plea for the Restoration of the True System of Latin Pronunciation " (New York, 1859), for which he received an autograph letter of thanks from William E. Gladstone.
