Thomas Tucker was born in England in 1859. He was foundation scholar of St. John's College, Cambridge in 1879 and Fellow in 1882. In the following year, he went to the new University College at Auckland New Zealand as Professor of Classics and English. In June 1885, he was elected to the Melbourne Chair of Classics, following the resignation of Professor H.A. Strong in the preceding year.

Tucker agreed to lecture in English as well as his classical subjects, following the death of Professor Morris in 1902, and when financial difficulties, consequent to the embezzlement by the University Accountant, Dickson, caused delay in a new appointment. He retired in 1920 when he was made Emeritus Professor and died in 1946.
