Picture of Charles G. Herbermann
After Herbermann graduated from the Jesuit college of St. Francis Xavier in New York, he became a member of the faculty there. This post he held for eleven years. In 1869, when he was only 29 years old, he accepted a position on the faculty of the City College of New York, where he taught Latin and Latin Literature (1869-1914) and served as librarian (1873-1914). Herbermann's first important advance in American Catholic scholarship came in 1905, when he was chosen editor-in-chief of the Catholic Encyclopedia, a post which he held until the completion of the monumental work in 1914.
