Wallace Lindsay was an important classical scholar of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and a palaeographer. He was Professor of Humanity (Latin) at St Andrews University. He pioneered the study of Latin (and Celtic) words. Through prolific scholarship and editing a large number of texts, including Plautus, Terence, Martial in the OCT, and Festus, and Nonius Marcellus in Teubner editions, he influenced almost every area of Latin research.
