    Notes:

    Graduated from Western Reserve College in 1844; at Monroeville, Ohio 1850-55; Cheshire, Connecticut 1855-57; Rockville, Connecticut 1857-64, and from October 1864 to 1871, Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature at Grinnell College, Grinnell, Iowa.

    According letter from John Dyer-Bennet to his sister Miriam, 3 Dec 1975, "Grinnell" (whether this means the college's administration or its alumni association is unclear) was able to confirm that Charles W. Clapp "was professor of rhetoric in 1870-71," and that he was "summarily fired by the president of the college on commencement day" in 1871. "It isn't known for certain why, but in a speech on the history of Grinnell given some years later the president said Prof. Clapp 'hardly agreed with the college on the joint education of men and women.'"

    The president of the college would have been George Frederic Magoun, who (according to Grinnell's web site) served in that capacity from 1865 to 1884. Also according to the site, in 1865 Joanna Harris Haines was the first woman to graduate from Grinnell, so presumably what Magoun was saying was that the Rev. Charles Wells Clapp was opposed to "the joint education of men and women."

    Charles married Jane Pray Bassett on 16 Aug 1849. Jane (daughter of John Bassett and Nancy Atwater Lee) was born on 21 Nov 1822 in Derby, New Haven, Connecticut; died in 1924; was buried in Godfrey Cemetery, Godfrey, Madison, Illinois. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    "Clapp arrived at Berkeley when it was a small school of some 400 students. By his efforts the department began the first major graduate program on the West Coast, but Greek was also widely taught throughout the state high schools as well. A genial and robust figure until ill health befell him at the age of fifty, his teaching was generally at the graduate level and centered around Pindar and Plato and his, many articles covered a range of subjects. He was a founder of the Philological Association of the Pacific States and served as president for two terms. At the time of his death he was at work on an edition of Pindar that was to be the summary of his life's work on that author." [Rutgers Database of Classical Scholars]

    Notes:

    From Britannica.com (accessed 11 Sep 2020):

    Richard Dyer-Bennet, (born October 6, 1913, Leicester, Leicestershire, England—died December 14, 1991, Monterey, Massachusetts, U.S.), British-born American tenor and guitarist who helped to revive the popularity of folk music through his concert performances, recordings, compositions, and teaching.

    Though born in England, Dyer-Bennet grew up in Canada and California and attended the University of California at Berkeley (1932–35), where he studied English and music. (He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1935.) After visiting Swedish folklorist Sven Scholander in 1935, Dyer-Bennet adopted Scholander's trinity of song interpretation—poetry, melody, and lute accompaniment. In 1944, though, he switched to the Spanish guitar and gave the first of what would become annual solo concerts at New York City's Town Hall; the impresario Sol Hurok signed him for national and foreign tours for many years. He gained a cult following with his approximately 800 songs (including about 100 of his own composition) that ranged through British and French ballads, European medieval songs, Swedish shepherd tunes, and American cowboy songs. Curiously, though identified as a folk singer, he preferred the label minstrel or troubadour.

    Dyer-Bennet stopped giving concerts after a stroke in 1972 limited use of his left hand. From 1970 to 1983 he taught at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
