J.H. Middleton | Dictionary of Art Historians
"Museum director and archaeologist. Middleton was the son of the architect John Middleton (1820-1885) and Maria Margaret Pritchett (Middleton). He traveled to Italy with his family where he was initially educated and then Cheltenham, England, where he attended Cheltenham College and then Exeter College, Oxford beginning in 1865. The following year, however, he suffered a severe depression, precipitated by the death of a close friend, and remained at home, privately reading art and archaeology in solitude for nearly six years. During this time he became addicted to morphine, prescribed by his doctor, as a remedy for insomnia. Middleton recovered enough to begin serious world touring, including Salt Lake City and the Rocky Mountains of the United States; Mexico, Greece, Asia Minor, Egypt, and north Africa. In Morocco where he secured entrance to Great Mosque by posing as an Islamic pilgrim."
