Arthur Stanley Pease was a classical scholar who was also an avid amateur botanist. Born in 1881, he received his AB, AM and PhD degrees in classics from Harvard in 1902, 1903 and 1905 respectively. He taught classics at Harvard University (1906-1909), the University of Illinois (1909-1924), and Amherst College (1924-1927). In 1927 he was appointed President of Amherst College. He resigned five years later and returned to teaching classics at Harvard, from 1932 to 1950. Pease died Jan. 7, 1964.

He was the author of numerous scientific articles as well as Amherst Academy: a New England School of the Past, 1814-1861 (1929).
