December 22, 1950 – December 06, 2018
Robert Henry Schmidt III was a philosopher who devoted his life to the serious study of classical philosophy, mathematics, and science, reading original sources in Greek, Latin, French and German, always seeking answers to the most difficult questions.
This unusual career was inspired by two great teachers he encountered at St John’s College in Annapolis in the late sixties and early seventies. By midlife he was able to support himself through publications, lectures and seminars. He made significant discoveries in the history of science and mathematics and had a profound influence on students world wide.
This site was created by his wife of 47 years, Ellen Loehr Black, and other long-time friends to perpetuate his memory and to make it possible for Robert to continue to teach new generations of students.
