With a Christ's Hospital prize presentation label to the front pastedown presented to Mary Edward, dated 1933. Arthur Elam Haigh (1855–1905) was an English classical scholar. On graduating BA in 1878 Haigh was elected to a fellowship at Hertford, which he held until 1886, proceeding MA in 1881. He became classical lecturer at Corpus also in 1878, and for the next twenty-seven years was constantly engaged in teaching at that and other colleges. In 1901 he was admitted fellow of Corpus, and was appointed senior tutor the following year. Haigh collaborated with T. L. Papillon in an edition of Virgil (1892); he also published The Attic Theatre (1889), third edition revised by A. W. Pickard-Cambridge (1907), and The Tragic Drama of the Greeks (1896). These works, which gave Haigh a general reputation, exhibited sound scholarship, independent judgement, the faculty of lucid exposition, and a wide range of classical and miscellaneous reading. DNB.
