Anthony Ashley Bevan
Anthony Ashley Bevan (1859-1933), English Orientalist.
In 1893 he became Lord Almoner's Professor of Arabic at Cambridge and held the post until 1933 when he died. He never visited any Arab countries, and his pronunciation of Arabic was thought "weird" by a former student. He was well liked by students and faculty, described as generous, and called a "liberal benefactor" to the college.
