A true Renaissance man
My friend Dr. John T. Kirby, on the Internet know also as, Corax is a longtime aficionado of tea, and the editor of CHA DAO (http://chadao.blogspot.com/), one of the 'go-to' resources for information online about the teas of Pacific Asia. Kirby is currently on research leave from Purdue University, where he is Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature. His publications include five books and numerous articles on a wide variety of topics in classical literature. A popular public speaker in the community, Kirby has also won the most prestigious teaching awards Purdue can bestow.
