John W. Round graduated from Wesleyan University, Middletown, Conn., in the class of 1843, and after teaching at
various points assumed the principalship of S. S. Seward Institute at Florida, N. Y., where he remained from 1851
to 1862, the date of his death. He was called to other higher institutions of learning, but at the request and
desire of Wm. H. Seward, who was closely identified with the institute, he was prevailed upon to remain and conduct
the Seward Institute, which was in a flourishing condition at his death. John W. Round was a linguist, mastering
no less than seven languages and also a natural born musician, playing several instruments skilfully. Socially
the whole community and those who knew him will give constant testimony of his great success and attainments, and
his scholastic ability can be attested by many men now in prominent public life.
