This wizard succeeded Quirinus Quirrell as Muggle Studies Professor and taught from 1990 to 1993.[1] In 1992, he had gained a student assistant to assist him and manage the classroom while he was absent.


When Harry Potter was given a torch by a Muggle student, he brought it to the professor's classroom, thinking it might be the right place for it. Instead of the teacher, he met his assistant and the torch was included in the artefact collection.[2] He left at some point before the 1996–1997 school year, and was replaced by Professor Charity Burbage.


Notes and references

  1. Harry refers to the teacher as a "he", so Burbage could not have been teaching during 1992, so she presumably began teaching in the 1993–1994 school year.
