John G. Winter was born in Holland, Mich., on Feb. 14, 1881, a son of Garrett and Janetje de Weerd. He was graduated from Hope College in Holland with an AB degree in 1901. He received an M.A. degree from the University of Michigan in 1904 and a Ph.D. in 1906. He served as an instructor of Greek and Latin at Hope College from 1901 to 1903. In 1906, after receiving his doctorate, Winter became an instructor in Greek and Latin at the University of Michigan. In 1911 he became assistant professor and was promoted to associate professor in 1915 and a full professor in 1919. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Winter also served as director of the Institute of Fine Arts and of the Museum of Art and Archaeology (now the Kelsey Museum). He served as chairman of the Department of Latin Language and Literature at the University from 1928 until 1950.

In 1929, Winter was named lecturer on the Thomas Spencer Jerome Foundation at the American Academy in Rome. In 1935-36 he was chosen Henry Russel Lecturer at the University of Michigan. He was a member of the Managing Committee of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece, and a member of the Advisory Council of the American Academy in Rome. In 1944 he was elected president of the American Philological Association.

His publications, in addition to many articles in scholarly periodicals, include: "Myth of Hercules at Rome" (1910), "Life and Letters in the Papyri" (1933), and "Michigan Papyri" (Volume LII. 1936). He was editor of T.S. Jerome's "Aspects of the Study of Roman History" (1923) and general editor of "Michigan Studies" (Humanistic Series).

He died March 23, 1956.
