One other such person, also at Harvard during Carl Conrad's time, I think,
was Arthur Darby Nock. He reviewed N.M.P. Nillson's _Geschichte der
griechischen Religion_. He commented (not ad verbum tradition) that knew
only 50% of what one needed to know to adequately review this work; but
then, that was twice as much as anyone else knew, so he would write the
review in spite of that.
And, as the oral tradition also records, he studied in the buff, wearing
only his bowler. And he liked to work all night. When his cleaning lady
came in one morning to discover him hard at work, at the sight she
exclaimed "My God." To which ADN replied, lifting his bowler, "No, Madam,
only his humble servant Arthur Darby Nock."
I look to Carl Conrad to give the authorized version of this tradition.
