"It would be difficult to recount his many abilities and accomplishments, but I have often said in recent years that there is probably no one living today who knows so much about the antiquities of ancient Egypt first hand, not simply where they are but what they mean…. In a long career in the Department of Antiquities, from the lowest rank to Chief Inspector, he was stationed at most posts throughout Egypt at one time or another, and his background and instincts caused him to see the monuments in his charge wherever he was, not through the eyes of the civil servant, but of the scholar. In addition, he has an amazing knowledge of the Egyptian collections in the world’s great museums. There has come a long series of articles and monographs from his pen, nearly every one of them producing some hitherto unknown material and a new interpretation of known material."
