Guest, Edwin (L)

Edwin Guest (1800-1880) was an English academic, who, although he initially practiced law, later Edwin Guestbecame better known as a philologist, historian and topographer. He was elected Master of Caius College, Cambridge in 1852 and later was briefly Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University.
