About Chapman Maupin

From the SOuthern Churchman, 11 Aug 1900. "At his home near Ellicott City, MD., on July 25th, entered into rest eternal the soul of Chapman Maupin, son of the late Professor Socrates Maupin and Sally Washington, aged 54 years. Interment at the U. of VA., July 27th.

Chapman Maupin, of distinguished ancestry, when a boy entered the Confederate army and served until the war's close; then returning to the University of Virginia, where his father, Dr. s. Maupin, of revered memory was for many years Chairman of the Faculty, he was among the first to take the M.A. degree. After obtaining this he studied abroad among the great Universities of Germany and Paris. On his return he taught for a while in Virginia then moved to Maryland where he was made principal of the Baltimore City College, and later started a University school at Ellicott City, where he taught for some time.

During the years of his work at the Baltimore City College as Professor of Latin he impressed himself on his students not only as master of his subject but as a skillful, thoughtful, painstaking and kindly teacher. For authorship he had but little time but his help was sought and welcomed in the preparation of school manuals, and it was hoped that he would be spared to embody in permanent form the results of his long and faithful study of his special department. He was a scholar of high aims and attainments, a friend of rare fidelity, a man who was the soul of integrity and honor, and who exemplified in his life the fine qualities of the race to which he belonged and the ennobling influences of the old order of things".
