For the name JOWETT and its VARIATIONS
My name is Benjamin Jowett
by Henry Beeching 1859-1919
First come I: my name is Jowett.
There's no knowledge but I know it
I am master of this college
What I don't know isn't knowledge
OR EVEN! Jowett's mausoleum epitaph

My name, it is Jowett,
As the gods did bestow it.
Though I lie here below it,
This lawn, none will mow it.
Life's river, I rowed it
Plato's line, I towed it,
Truth's seed, I did sow it,
If it is knowledge, I know it.
Yes, Benjamin Jowett (1817 - 1893) was a famous English theologian and Greek scholar whose translations of Plato (c.427 - 347bc) are still read today. After being Regius Professor, he became Master of Balliol College, Oxford, from 1870 to 1893.
He also translated Thucydides and Aristotle; he took 30 years over the translation Plato's Republic. No wonder it is still the standard English-language text.
It is unlikely that he built or drove motor cars.
However, his old college is now offering two Jowett Scholarships. The Scholarships, which will be awarded solely on the basis of academic merit, are open to current Balliol graduate students who are reading, or intend to read, for a D.Phil
There is of course the Jowett Library at Balliol with the extensive collection of BJ's papers.
