[Died August 1, 1905, while this book was in press.]

Benjamin Blake Minor, lawyer, educator, editor and author, was born in Tappahannock, Essex County, Va., October 21, 1818, the oldest child of Dr. Hubbard Taylor and Jane (Blake) Minor. His grandfather, Thomas Minor, Jr., of Locust Grove, Spottsylvania County, a commissioned officer during the whole Revolution, served as aide to Gen. Edward Stevens at the surrender of Cornwallis. His great-grandfather, James Taylor, Jr., of Midway, Caroline County, served both in a high military and civil capacity during the French and Indian and Revolutionary Wars.

Mr. Minor was educated at Bristol College on the Delaware, the University of Virginia, and at William and Mary University, taking degrees in moral and political science and in law. Upon attaining his majority he practised law in Petersburg, Va., but later removed to Richmond. In 1842 he married Virginia Maury Otey, daughter of Rt. Rev. James Henry Otey, D. D., LL. D., of Columbia, Tenn.

In 1843 he purchased and edited the "Southern Literary Messenger," but sold it four years later to assume control of the Virginia Female Institute in Staunton, Va. He resigned in 1849 to continue his practice of law.
