Yes, Webster. Noah Webster is his name. When you think about all the prominent people and famous names that impacted the formation of the United States in the 17th and 18th centuries, I guess it’s easy for Noah Webster to get lost in the shuffle.
Before the invention of spell check, we picked up the good old fashioned dictionary for help spelling words, but even then, didn’t you just always think the name of the dictionary was Webster’s?
Not only was Noah Webster the author of “Webster’s,” America’s first dictionary, he was also an advocate for universal free education as way to aid national unity at a time when the emergence of the modern school system was still in its infancy stage.
