Dr James Duport "(1606, Cambridge - July 17th 1679, Peterborough) was an English classical scholar.....; educated at Westminster and at Trinity College, where he became fellow and subsequently vicemaster. In 1639 he was appointed regius professor of Greek, in 1664 dean of Peterborough, and in 1668 master of Magdalene College." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Duport

His “books bequeathed…at his death in 1679 were kept [in what became the main library of the Pepys building at Magdelene College] until 1834. He had contributed substantially to the cost of the building.” http://www.magd.cam.ac.uk/pepys/architecture.html
