Terry L. Meyers is a professor at William & Mary in the Department of English (1970 - Present). He has served as Department Chair of English and the Department of Philosophy (2007). He received his A.B. from Lawrence University, both his M.A. and his Ph.D. are from the University of Chicago, and he has also studied at the Sorbonne.
His scholarly interests include Victorian poetry, particularly that of A. C. Swinburne, and he has written and edited several books on both subjects. In addition, he has done quite a bit of research on Williamsburg history. In his own words, "I also have a research interest in local history and William & Mary history (especially, in conjunction with the Lemon Project, slavery at the College); I focus on the century forgotten (or, rather, erased) in Williamsburg-- the 19th Century. But I'm also working on the only poet who has ever been a president of William & Mary, William Dawson; on the 18th C. Bray School for black children...; on a 1773 letter by "Academicus" possibly by Jefferson; and on the Williamsburg years and poetry of Virginia Hamilton Adair, who taught briefly in the Department." 1
