Biographical/Historical Note
William Carey Morey was born in 1843. In 1862 he entered the University of Rochester, but left shortly afterward to join the Union Army. At the end of the Civil War, he retired from the army as brevet major and lieutenant colonel of the cavalry. He then re-entered the University of Rochester, graduating in 1868. He was a student at Rochester Theological Seminary for one year and a tutor at the University of Rochester before becoming a professor of history and English literature at Kalamazoo College. In 1872 he returned to the University of Rochester, teaching Latin language and literature until 1877. From 1877 to 1883 he was professor of Latin and history, and from 1883 until his retirement in 1920, he taught history and political science. Morey was also a member of "The Club." Professor Morey died in 1925.
