    Biographical Note

    William Frederic Badè, born in Carver, Minnesota on January 22, 1871, attended the Moravian College in Pennsylvania where he obtained his doctorate in 1898, teaching Greek, German, Hebrew and Old Testament literature there until 1902. He then became professor of Old Testament literature and of Semitic languages at the Pacific School of Religion, remaining in Berkeley until his death on March 4, 1936.
    Professor Badè, one of the early members of the Sierra Club, was a close friend of John Muir, and as his literary executor, edited many of Muir's works.
