Edward Moseley Gwathmey was a professor in the Department of English at the College of William and Mary, and head of the department from 1928 - 1930. He was a member of Kappa Alpha and Phi Beta Kappa.

One of his former students, Alfred R. Armstrong, said of his teaching style: "Dr. Gwathmey spent the whole session to the last day on the first half of the book. Then he assigned us to the last half of the book for the last day and proceeded to talk for forty minutes about the honor system. It was still a wonderful course in English because we didn't rush."[1]
