Artistic rendition of Noah Webster (October 16, 1758 - May 28, 1843), lexicographer, textbook author, spelling reformer, word enthusiast, and editor. He has been called the Father of American Scholarship and Education. His Blue-Backed Speller books were used to teach spelling and reading to five generations of American children. In the United States, his name has become synonymous with dictionaries, especially the modern Merriam-Webster dictionary that was first published in 1828 as An American Dictionary of the English Language.
