George Grote was born on 17 November 1794. He was educated at a school in Sevenoaks, Kent and Charterhouse, where he remained for six years. At Charterhouse Grote received an entirely classical education with mathematics introduced after he had left the school. In 1810, Grote joined his father's bank and worked there until 1843. From 1832 to 1841 he was a member of parliament for the City of London. He wrote widely on the classics and Greek history. Between 1846 and 1856 he published History of Greece , which ran to twelve volumes. During the 1820s Grote was an advocate for the establishment of the London University (now University College London). In 1860 he became the University's treasurer and then its president in 1868. From 1862 until his death in 1871 he was the Vice Chancellor of the federal University of London.
