A Rigorous Daily Schedule
Ronald S. Stroud, "Pritchett, William Kendrick
," Database of Classical Scholars
Upon his retirement in 1976 [at age 67], Pritchett embarked on a virtual second career. Free of teaching and administrative duties, he devoted himself almost exclusively to research and publication, maintaining a rigorous daily schedule of five hours of study in the early morning, followed by a hike on the steep trails of nearby Tilden Park, and then five more hours in the late afternoon and evening. He followed this regimen seven days a week, including all holidays, for almost three decades.
