The Gladstone Chair of Greek is an academic position that was one of the original endowments of the foundation of the University of Liverpool in 1881. The Chair was named in recognition of the scholarship of W. E. Gladstone, the British prime minister, and the close association of the Gladstone family with Liverpool.[1]

With the decline in the teaching of Classics the chair has been vacant since Professor Long left in 1983 to take up a position in the United States.
