Moses Hadas PhD '30 was one of the many titans of mid-20th century Columbia who is largely forgotten today, but fondly remembered by many students who attended Columbia prior to his passing in 1966.

A classicist by training, he began teaching as an instructor in the General Honors course in 1925, and except for brief service in the OSS during World War II, he stayed at Columbia for the rest of his career, remaining one of the College's most sought-after teachers.

After college, Hadas came to Columbia to do advanced work in Greek and Latin literature, though he also embraced undergraduate education. After teaching General Honors, he taught the Colloquium on Important Books, and and was one of the original teachers of Humanities A, which he continued to teach for years.
