Dr Douglas Little, an influential classics teacher who retired from the University of Otago classics department as an associate professor in 1987, has died in Dunedin after a long illness.
He was in his mid-70s.
Dr Little, who at one stage was the department's only New Zealand-born staff member, had earlier graduated from Otago University with an MA(Hons) in Latin and German and an honours degree in Greek, before gaining a PhD in classics at the University of Texas, in Austin.
Having earlier served as an assistant lecturer, he returned to the Otago classics staff as a senior lecturer in 1975, after completing his doctorate.
An obituary will follow.
