Noah Webster Jr. (1758-1843) was the father of the American dictionary and spelling standardization. The Yale graduate taught future generations of school children to read and write. The modern Merriam-Webster dictionary was first published in 1828 as “An American Dictionary of the English Language”. He also promoted the US Constitution ratification, American nationalism and the establishment of an American intellectual foundation. 

In "The Bat Jar Conjecture", when Sheldon was insulted when asked to join their Physics Bowl team, he asked them if they would ask Noah Webster to play Boggle.
