George Charles Moore Smith (1858-1940) was a renowned literary scholar who graduated from St John's College, Cambridge, with a first-class degree in the classics in 1881. In 1896 he was made professor of English language and literature at Firth College, Sheffield, and he played a key role in building up the social and academic position of the institution after it became the University of Sheffield in 1905. College Plays Performed in the University of Cambridge (1923) includes a chronological table of the Latin plays performed by scholars at the university in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The study also contains Moore Smith's 48-page introduction along with an appendix of actor lists. The introduction provides useful context to sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literary and theatrical culture at the University of Cambridge, discussing both the 'outlines of [the plays] histories' and the 'manner of [their] production'.
