Heinrich Schliemann Papers

GR GL HS 003

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

The son of a Lutheran pastor, Heinrich Ernst Schliemann was born on January 6, 1822 in Neubuckow, Mecklenberg-Schwerin, Germany. The following year, his family moved to Ankershagen, the town that Heinrich Schliemann considered his hometown. The house where he grew up has since been converted to the Heinrich Schliemann Museum. In 1841, at the age of 19, he planned to leave Germany and sail to Colombia, South America for employment opportunities. The ship, however, met with a tremendous storm and made it only as far as Holland before it was stranded on the coast.  With the help of a local family, Schliemann recuperated from the shipwreck and moved on to Amsterdam where he worked as a clerk and began to study a wide variety of languages. As it turns out, Schliemann had an aptitude for languages and during his life expanded his knowledge to include English, French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Danish, Polish, Italian, Greek, Latin, Russian, Arabic, and Turkish.
In 1844 he became an employee of the trading house B.H. Schröder and Co. Two years later, after learning Russian, the company sent him to St. Petersburg to serve as a commodities trading agent. Although he remained an agent for B.H. Schröder, Schliemann started his own agency as well. This independent venture was the first step in accumulating his great personal fortune. In 1852, he married a Russian woman, Ekaterina Lyshina, and had three children with her. In the following years, Schliemann, by now economically secure, began the first of his many travels around the world which would eventually include Egypt, Greece, the Near East, North Africa, India, Singapore, China, Japan, North and South America. During these travels he always kept a diary and it is from these that we learn much about his life. Today, these diaries reside in the Gennadius Library.
In 1863, worn out by the commercial business world and estranged from his Russian wife, Schliemann decided to semi-retire and revert to his childhood love of ancient Greek. The story Schliemann himself told was that he became enamored with ancient Greek as a young grocer’s apprentice when he heard a drunken man in the store reciting passages of Homer. In 1866-7 he made formal steps towards the study of ancient Greece by enrolling in archaeology courses at the Sorbonne in Paris. As Schliemann became more absorbed in the ancient Greek world and more estranged from Russia and his Russian wife, he decided to make Greece his home and began searching for a Greek wife. While on a trip to America in 1869, Schliemann was granted U.S. citizenship in New York and a divorce from his Russian wife by the State of Indiana. In September of that same year he married the 17 year-old Sophia Engastromenos, who was chosen from a pool of prospective brides presented to him by Theocletos Vimpos, Archbishop of Mantinea and Schliemann’s friend and former ancient Greek teacher. The following year, Schliemann commissioned Ernst Ziller to construct a permanent residence for his new bride. The house, named the Iliou Melathron in honor of Troy, was finished in 1880 and still stands—one of the finest examples of Neoclassical architecture in Athens today. It presently houses the Numismatic Museum of Greece.
Schliemann absorbed by his passion for Homer and archaeology, spent the remainder of his life on archaeological endeavors all of which he was able to finance personally. The discovery of Troy (1870-73) was one of Schliemann’s greatest accomplishments and brought him worldwide fame. His other excavations were also significant and include important sites such as Mycenae, Tiryns, and Orchomenos.  In 1882 he met Wilhelm Dörpfeld, with whom he collaborated at Troy and Mycenae for the rest of his years and who, after Schliemann’s death, continued excavations at Troy with the financial help of Sophia. Despite all these activities, Schliemann managed to publish the results of his excavations quite rapidly, and often in more than one language (see, for example major publications such as Mycenae, Ilios, and Tiryns)
Heinrich Schliemann died December 26, 1890 in Naples, Italy succumbing to an infection which had developed after an ear operation earlier that November in Halle, Germany. Wilhelm Dörpfeld accompanied the body back to Athens a few days later. Schliemann is buried in the First Cemetery of Athens in a mausoleum he designed himself. His second wife, Sophia, and their daughter, Andromache, along with her family (surnamed Melas) are also buried there. Heinrich and Sophia’s son Agamemnon is buried in Paris, France.

 

HISTORY OF THE SCHLIEMANN PAPERS

For a detailed account on the history of the Schliemann Papers, see now S.A.H. Kennell, ‘Schliemann and his papers. A tale from the Gennadeion Archives’, Hesperia 76 (2007), 785-817.
Various donors throughout the years have contributed to the Heinrich Schliemann Papers. The first papers the Gennadius Library received were the Calvert letters which Francis Bacon donated in 1923 (cf. Series BB, Box 1, Folder 2.1 for letter of F.H. Bacon to B.H. Hill). The bulk of the papers, however, was deposited in 1936 by Schliemann’s children, Andromache (Schliemann) Melas and Agamemnon Schliemann.  Along with the bequest, the two children each stipulated that the papers were to be placed on loan and that anybody requesting access to the archive should first have written permission from the Schliemann Family. In 1937, the first request for the papers was submitted to the Library when Agamemnon Schliemann sent an “Erklärung” (declaration of support) on behalf of Ernst Meyer. In the declaration, Agamemnon stated that Meyer was a highly capable scholar and was qualified to write the biography of Schliemann and make a record of the papers deposited in the library.
Ernst Meyer’s first publication of portions of the Schliemann Papers appeared in 1936 and was accompanied by his new addition of Schliemann’s “Selbstbiographie” (the original published in 1892 was edited by Sophia Schliemann herself). In the following years, not only was Meyer was given priority in research and access to the Schliemann Papers, but he also received permission from the family to remove some material from the archive. During WWII, when Meyer was serving as an officer in the German army, he took advantage of the confused state of affairs and removed a number of volumes of Schliemann’s correspondence from the Gennadius Library and took them back to Germany. When communications were once again resumed with Meyer after the war, he reported that the volumes he had taken to Germany had either been lost or destroyed. Apparently, he had placed some of the volumes in the State Archives in Mecklenburg-Schwerin for safekeeping but when the archives re-opened in 1948, they were found empty. In the following years, some of the lost correspondence resurfaced and Meyer filtered them back to the Gennadius Library through the German Embassy. During these years (1952-57) the Gennadius Library attempted to track down the remainder of Meyer’s borrowed material and made a catalogue of the material still missing.
After Agamemnon Schliemann died in Paris in 1954, authority over the Schliemann Papers was transferred to his second wife, Sophia Antonopoulou. By this time a very elderly Andromache Schliemann Melas had also passed on control of her father’s papers to her sons, Leno and Alex.
As the number of queries for the Schliemann Papers multiplied, access policy became a complicated issue. On June 15, 1960 Peter Topping, Librarian of the Gennadius, wrote a report to Henry Robinson, Director of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA), concerning the deposition, status and need for preservation of the Schliemann Papers. Later that year, a decision was made by the administration of the Gennadius Library to close the Schliemann Collection. The reason they stated for this drastic action was the “lack of clarity as to the conditions under which this collection may be used in the Gennadius” (Kenneth Setton, Special Research Fellow on behalf of the Gennadius Library). Only Ernst Meyer retained access to the papers.
In a letter to Henry Robinson (16-3-1961), Kenneth Setton informed him of the various problems the staff encountered with permitting access to the Schliemann Papers. One of these problems was Peter-Nick Vavalis. A journalist by trade, Vavalis had been hired by Eli Lilly of Indiana to translate some of Schliemann’s correspondence concerning a trip Schliemann had taken to Indiana in 1869.  Conflict arose after the Library discovered that Mr. Vavalis had been reading and copying correspondence not included in his permit with the intention of publishing it. Vavalis eventually deposited two sections of a data report (dated 1960) on the material he studied at the Gennadius Library but was dissuaded from making further inquires after Mr. Lilly’s project.
While the Gennadius Library was dealing with Vavalis, Ernst Meyer was creating problems too.  Meyer hired a psychiatrist from New York, Dr. William Niederland, to examine Schliemann’s correspondence for a personality study. Meyer gave Dr. Niederland the impression that he had publishing rights over the Schliemann papers and did not need the permission of the Schliemann family.
The Melas brothers met with Mr. Aristides Kyriakidis, the ASCSA’s attorney, in late 1960 and informed him that their mother, Andromache, wanted to regain possession of the Schliemann Papers. In a confidential letter written March 28, 1961, Henry Robinson advised Alfred Bellinger, Chairman of the Managing Committee of the ASCSA, that the Gennadius Library should buy the Schliemann Archive in order to keep it together as well as to maintain control of administrative policies concerning its use. If the purchase was not possible, Robinson suggested relinquishing control of the Papers. After Bellinger gave approval for purchase, Francis Walton (the new librarian of the Gennadius Library) contacted Eli Lilly on September 16, 1961 in hopes of obtaining funds for the purchase of the Schliemann Papers.
Negotiations for the purchase of the Schliemann papers were conducted from October 1961 until May 1962. The value of the purchase was assessed at $15,000 and the Gennadius Library asked Eli Lilly for an additional $5,000 for the conservation and preservation of the papers. The assessment of the contents of the Schliemann Papers at the time of purchase was approximately 64 volumes of letters, 38 copybooks, 18 diaries, 44 volumes of account books, and some miscellaneous unbound papers and manuscripts. Having been granted the funds, the purchase and transfer of the Heinrich Schliemann Papers to the Gennadius Library from Leno and Alex Melas was completed in June 1962.
In the midst of these purchase negotiations, the collection continued to grow. In 1961 Lady Wanda Max Müller made a significant addition when she and her sons donated to the Library a collection of 70 letters and 4 drawings that Friedrich Max Müller had sent to Schliemann. The late Sir William Max Müller had originally loaned them to Ernst Meyer in 1938 for use in his book on Schliemann, and they were in Meyer’s possession when WWII broke out. The Müller family heard nothing again from Meyer until Lady Wanda Max Müller contacted him in 1946 only to be informed that the Max Müller papers were lost along with the volumes of correspondence he had removed from the Gennadius. Fortunately, Meyer found the Max Müller letters in 1952, in an antiquarian bookshop. He bought them back to give to Lady Wanda Max Müller, who in turn donated them to the Gennadius Library (cf. Story of the Schliemann letters-Series BB- Box 1 Folder 4.1).
In November of 1965 while researching their new book about Sophia and Heinrich, Lynn and Gray Poole told Walton of an additional lot of papers which Alex Melas had recently found in the basement of a house owned by his late brother, Leno. The new papers contained 200 letters from Heinrich to Sophia, more than 50 letters from Sophia to Heinrich, 400 letters from Heinrich to various important people, and 29 honorary diplomas. A frenzy of negotiations between Alex Melas and the Gennadius Library ensued, with Lynn Poole as mediator. An agreement was finally reached in June 1966 and a value of $30,000 was set for the additional Schliemann Papers.
In 1967, Eli Lilly wrote to the Director of the Gennadius Library, Francis Walton, expressing interest in obtaining the portion of Schliemann’s 1869 diary written during his visit to America on permanent loan at the Lilly Library of Indiana University in Indianapolis. The request was granted and today, pages 1-20 of Diary A13 reside on permanent loan at the Lilly Library in Indianapolis. Photocopies of these pages are available at the Gennadius Library.
Other contributions to the Schliemann Papers include two letters Schliemann wrote to Frank Calvert donated by Gisela Richter in 1963; photocopies of four letters written to Amelia Edwards (originals housed in the Amelia Edwards Collection of Somerville College Library) donated in July 1975; secondary material donated by Georgios Styl. Korres (see Series I, Secondary Materials from 1985 to the present); and 27 letters from Rudolf Virchow to Schliemann. Gustav Mahr of the Museum für Vor-und Frühgeschichte Preussischen Kulturbesitz helped in acquiring the Virchow letters for the Gennadius Library from Ernst Meyer’s son (cf. letter July 1986 of Mahr-Schliemann file for a detailed catalogue of Virchow letters) and they entered the collection on March 15, 1985. On June 2, 1998, the descendants of the Melas Family donated 40 original photographs and 6 copies of photographs of Heinrich Schliemann and various family members.

 

PROCESSING HISTORY

When the Schliemann Papers were deposited in the Gennadius Library in 1936, a detailed list of the contents was never made. According to the deposition letter written by the Schliemann children, Ernst Meyer was to make a catalogue of the material on loan at the Gennadius Library. Although he made fairly accurate estimates of the contents of the Schliemann Papers, he never completed a detailed list.
The Schliemann Papers remained uncatalogued for a number of years. The Gennadius Library made a brief assessment before purchasing the papers in 1962. In the years 1963-67, the Library conducted a microfilm project, funded largely by the Lilly Foundation, to preserve the Schliemann correspondence. To microfilm the papers, it was necessary to take apart the bound volumes. Each document was numbered separately in red ink with the intention of rebinding the documents afterwards in their original order. Unfortunately, no one ever followed through with this plan. After microfilming, the correspondence was arranged chronologically in boxes.
The papers remained in this state until 1980 when Archivist Christina Vardas, with the aid of a grant from the Demos Foundation in Chicago, began to systematically catalogue the vast Schliemann Papers. In 1982, Donald Easton published an account of the contents of the Schliemann Papers, incorporating Vardas’ work (“The Schliemann Papers” Report of the British School of Athens, 77, 1982). Vardas changed the original order of the papers and placed all documents in subject series, each of which was arranged chronologically. She renumbered all the documents in pencil (the red numbers given during the microfilming indicate the original order of the documents) and these are the numbers now used when referring to a document. Occasional omission of numbers is, for the most part, only an error in numbering the sequence and does not indicate missing documents. At the suggestion of Prof. David Traill, Vardas also composed an index of the correspondence received by year and the name of the sender. Her catalogue of the Schliemann Papers is written in both Greek and English.
The Gennadius Library Archives received an NEH grant in 1997-98 for the Preservation Microfilming Project. The purpose of the project was to make high resolution microfilm of the Schliemann diaries and incoming correspondence (1839-1890). The project entailed photographing more than 34,000 documents and 18 diaries and, in the end, produced 126 rolls of film. The project was supervised by Amalia Kakissis who, after filming, inspected the entire archive to verify placement of documents, rehouse items for preservation purposes and revise the catalogue with the new information.
In 1998-99 the restoration of the 29 honorary diplomas was made possible by means of a grant from INSTAP. In 2002-03 all microfilmed documents (Series A, B and BBB vol. 11) were digitized in collaboration with the Heinrich-Schliemann-Gesellschaft Ankershagen (Germany) and the Scan Project produced 14 CD-Rom.
In order not to disrupt the numerical order in which Vardas had arranged the Schliemann Papers, only minor corrections were made to series titles on the boxes and the catalogue to ensure better continuity. When Vardas first arranged the papers, she assigned the series titles and letters in Greek. The new catalogue, however, has series letters in English (some series titles were changed for a more precise description). A more detailed list of contents was made for each series. A new series, titled Secondary Material, was also created and contains mostly photocopied articles and offprints as well as documentary videotapes about Schliemann donated to the Gennadius.
The adjunct archives of Sophia Schliemann and the Schliemann Family remain in the order they were originally assembled with the exception that a more detailed list of contents was made for each. The three family trees included in the previous catalogue have also been revised and expanded where needed.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The Heinrich Schliemann Papers contain diaries, correspondence, manuscripts, personal documents, photographs, economic documents and registers, expenditure books, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings and secondary material. In addition to the Heinrich Schliemann Papers are two adjunct collections of papers: the Sophia Schliemann Papers and the Heinrich Schliemann Family Papers.

The Heinrich Schliemann Papers are divided into ten series:

Series A: Diariesconsists of 18 diaries. Schliemann usually kept a diary only during his travels, so the years of the diaries are not consecutive. Schliemann wrote in the language of the country he was visiting whenever possible, and thus the diaries include passages in French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Russian, Dutch, and Turkish. Included with Diaries A1, A2, and A8 are typewritten transcriptions. The 1869 diary recording Schliemann’s visit to America (pp. 1-20 of diary A13) is on indefinite loan to the Lilly Library of the University of Indiana.

Series B: Correspondence consists of 106 boxes containing approximately 34,000 letters written to Schliemann. They are arranged chronologically from 1839 to1890 and range in topic including Schliemann’s commercial activities while in Russia, various personal matters, and archaeologically related correspondence. Most of Schliemann’s correspondence from 1890 is not in the series and its whereabouts are unknown (cf. Schliemann Papers correspondence; letter November 26, 1955 Ernst Meyer to Gennadius Library). For a list of foreign authors, please follow the link

Schliemann_Incoming_Foreign.pdf

Series BB: Original Letters consists of letters Schliemann himself wrote including letters to Frank and James Calvert, G. Constantine, Friedrich Max Müller, and Amelia Edwards. Francis Bacon donated the Calvert letters to the ASCSA in 1923 and the Friederich Max Müller Papers were given to the Gennadius Library by Lady Wanda Max Müller in 1961. Photocopies of the Amelia Edwards letters were presented by Somerville College in England, and Harvard University donated copies of the letters of Stephen Fields and Messrs. Schlüsser and Co.

Series BBB: Copybooks contains 43 volumes of copies Schliemann made of his own outgoing correspondence from 1845 to1890. The volumes of correspondence that were lent to Ernst Meyer before WWII have never been recovered. The contents of the missing volumes are as follows: July 1876-March 1877, March-July 1877, July1878-July 1879, Oct. 1877-April 1878, June 1885-January 1888.

Series C: Manuscripts and other handwritten notes contains manuscripts, both in English and German, for some of Schliemann’s publications (including La Chine, Trojanische Alterthumer Bericht über die Ausgrabungen in Troja, and the Excavations at the Boeotian Orchomenos), a draft of a report about the Mycenae excavations, various notes concerning its publication, sketches of vases and a draft of a speech in German.

Series D: Personal Documents consists of official documents owned by Schliemann including some of his passports, papers for U.S. citizenship, divorce issues and prenuptial agreement with Sophia, documents pertaining to the firman for the excavations of Troy from the Turkish government, a draft of the application for excavation permit in Troy, documents pertaining to Schliemann’s last will and testament, 29 diplomas for his archaeological achievements, and various personal notes.

Series E: Economics is divided into three sub-series as follows: sub-series 1 contains 652 documents of accounts, receipts, invoices, copies of invoices and stock exchange bulletins 1846-1889; sub-series 2 contains 38 economic registers divided into three categories (account books, cash books and books of expenses 1847-1890); and sub-series 3 includes photocopies of documents pertaining to transactions with the National Bank of Greece. For a list of Schliemann’s documents at the National Bank of Greece, see Schliemann Papers correspondence.

Series F: Heinrich Schliemann’s Property in Athens and Collection of Coins contains, for the most part, documentation on Schliemann’s property. For the Iliou Melathron, the documents include building contracts, offers for building materials, expense accounts of the building, and designs for furniture, payment receipts and an architectural plan of the house. Documentation on the construction of the German Institute and papers pertaining to repairs and renting of the Mousson Street house are also included in this series. A small appendix to the series contains material on Schliemann’s coins including a report and catalogue of the coins housed in the Iliou Melathron from numismatist Achillea Postolacca.

Series G: Miscellaneous largely consists of correspondence, sketches, drawings, notes, business pamphlets and notices, clippings, and copies of books. Of special interest is a catalogue of plants of the Troad and offprints of 8 plates from a publication. The remainder of the documents are: announcements and invitations for engagements, weddings, deaths and funerals 1853-89, hotel accounts, medical prescriptions, Ernst Meyer’s manuscript notes about the Schliemann Papers from 1938, a typewritten catalogue by Alex Melas for the second part of the Schliemann Papers purchased in 1966, one large bound volume with grammar, orthographic exercises; translations in different languages also containing some correspondence, Schliemann’s Russian passports, one booklet with Spanish vocabulary, copies of Schliemann’s book, Atlas des Antiquités Troyennes (1874, F.A. Brockhaus, Leipzig), and 46 photographs of Heinrich Schliemann and Family.

Series H: Newspaper Clippings consists of clipping from various international newspapers and news agencies and is divided into three sub-series. Sub-series 1 contains the earliest clippings about Schliemann’s life and his archaeological work during the years 1873-1890. Apparently, Schliemann himself collected these clippings and amongst these are also stories unrelated to him but of personal interest. Sub-series 2 contains loose clippings from November 1890 to March 1891 associated with Schliemann’s illness and death. Sub-series 3 contains clippings associated with the literature on Schliemann after his death, including a book review of the first biography of Heinrich Schliemann by Emil Ludwig in 1931.

Series I: Secondary material consists of photocopies, newspaper clippings and offprints associated with Heinrich Schliemann. Most of the material in this series, with the exception of folders 1 and 2, was donated by Prof. George Styl. Korres and it includes photostats of Schliemann’s original last will and testament, documents pertaining to the inheritance of the Iliou Melathron, and photocopies of translations and transcriptions by Loukia Frangouli of some of the Sophia-Heinrich correspondence. The remainder of the photocopies in this series are newspaper articles and offprints from 1974 to the present. The topics vary and include material pertaining to the 100th anniversary of Heinrich Schliemann’s death (1990), studies of the Iliou Melathron, the re-appearance of the so-called Priam’s Treasure of Troy lost in the WWII, and the Schliemann mausoleum. This series also contains contains a media section consisting of three documentary videos made about Schliemann.

Series J: Photographs contains original and copies of photographs donated by the Schliemann and Engastromenos family descendants. There are not only numerous photos of Sophia and Heinrich, but also photos of their children (Agamemnon and Andromache), Andromache’s family, and family members of the Engastromenos (Kastromenos) and the Ernst Schliemann clan as well.
