Short biography
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Fred immigated with his family to the United States on the eve of his teen years. After attending Oberlin College and the University of Michigan (Ph.D. 1938), he joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin, where he celebrated the anniversary of his 120th term (or 60th year) in 1999. His scholarly work embraced many subjects, including Anglo-Saxon, English composition, Jamaican English, the place names of Dane County, fieldwork for the Linguistic Atlas, and of course preeminently the Dictionary of American Regional English.
