Marquis Who's Who Millennium Magazine

237 A Marquis Who's Who Magazine T eaching at a research university appealed to Dr. Steven Lattimore, as he enjoyed the work involved and believed he was more suited for it than most people. He was particularly intrigued by the university professors he encountered and liked their lifestyles, which helped him to pursue a career in education. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts from Dartmouth College in 1960 and a Master of Arts from Princeton University. After graduating with his master’s degree, he began working at Dartmouth as an instructor in 1964 and later held a similar role at Haverford College. Being the classicist he is, he ventured off to Rome for a year and obtained a position as an assistant professor for the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies. He returned to the states, making his home at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he served as an assistant professor from 1967 to 1974, an associate professor from 1974 to 1998, and a professor from 1998 to 2006. During his time at the institution, he obtained a PhD from Princeton University. In his career, Dr. Lattimore has authored several books on classicism, including “The Marine Thiasos in Greek Sculpture,” and “Sculpture II: Marble Sculpture, 1967-1980 (Isthmia)” and was a translator for “Thucydides: The Peloponnesian War.” He enjoys the act of writing and has always wanted to compose poetry and short stories like his father and brother. Dr. Lattimore is an active volunteer for the League of Women Voters and a member of the German Archaeological Institute. He completed a fellowship through the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation from 1975 to 1976. Throughout his fruitful career, he has enjoyed working alongside dedicated people who persevere, even when faced with difficulties.
