John Stoddard was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, in 1850. In 1871 he graduated from Williams College. Later he studied two years of theology at Yale Divinity School. After that he taught Latin and French at Boston Latin School. He began traveling around the world in 1874 and published Red-Letter Days Abroad in 1884. He turned his experiences into a series of popular lectures delivered throughout North America. These lectures were periodically published in book form as John L. Stoddard's Lectures. These books include numerous illustrations derived from the immense catalog of photographs taken by Stoddard, and cover every subject, from art and architecture, to archaeology and natural history. The books were immensely popular in their day.
