About Author

Homer B. Hulbert

Homer Bezaleel Hulbert was an American missionary, journalist, linguist, and Korean independence advocate. Calvin and Mary Hulbert gave birth to Hulbert in New Haven, Vermont, in 1863. His mother, Mary Elizabeth Woodward Hulbert, was the granddaughter of Mary Wheelock, daughter of Eleazar Wheelock, Dartmouth College's founder. After graduating from St. Johnsbury Academy and Dartmouth College, Hulbert enrolled at Union Theological Seminary in 1884. He first traveled to Korea in 1886 with two other professors, Delzell A. Bunker and George W. Gilmore, to teach English at the Royal English School. There, he instructed the children of Korean monarchy and nobles. In 1901, he launched The Korea Review. Emperor Gwangmu then assigned him the task of establishing a middle school in the Western tradition. He authored a history book on Korea that became a standard source in the United States for nearly 50 years. Prior to 1905, he had a positive attitude toward Japanese engagement in Korea, seeing the Japanese as reformers as opposed to Russia, which he saw as reactionary.
