BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

“Long recognized throughout the world as a leading authority on Greek architecture of the classical period, William Bell Dinsmoor was associated through almost the whole of his professional career with three institutions: the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Columbia University and the Archaeological Institute of America.” [YEAR BOOK OF THE AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY, 1974, p. 156] 

William Bell Dinsmoor was born in July 1886, at Windham, New Hampshire, son of a Boston architect. On completion of his studies at the Boston Latin School, the oldest public school in the States, he attended the Harvard School of Architecture from 1902 to 1906. Dinsmoor received his degree in 1906 and over the next two years he was employed by a New York based architectural firm. During the summer of 1906 he made his first crossing across the Atlantic visiting Europe. It was also his first visit to Greece.  In 1904, a grant from the Carnegie Institution allowed the American School to start a series of appointments of Fellows in Architecture. Dinsmoor was the first holder of the Fellowship in Architecture (1908), thus beginning a long and successful association with the American School. His fellowship was extended for a further year. In September 1910 Dinsmoor returned from the States with his wife Zillah Frances (née Pierce). His appointment was continued for a further two years, “in view of the desires of the Carnegie Institution.”  In 1912 he was appointed Architect of the School, a position he held up until 1919. His work was interrupted for his service in the United States Army.

His association with Columbia University began in 1920. From 1920 to 1926 Dinsmoor presided over Columbia’s Avery Library.  There he “established the separate Fine Arts Library. He discovered and acquired some of Avery’s most important architectural drawings, including Sebastiano Serlio’s unpublished manuscript on domestic architecture, dating from the 1540s, illustrated with Serlio’s own drawings. Serlio planned this to be the sixth book of his seven volume treatise on architecture. The manuscript was finally published in 1978 by the Architectural History Foundation.”  In 1924 Dinsmoor returned to the American School as professor of architecture for half of each year until 1928. From 1933 until his retirement in 1955 he served as executive officer of the Department of Fine Arts at Columbia. In 1935 Dinsmoor was appointed professor of archaeology at Columbia.

A great part of his professional career was also connected with the Archaeological Institute of America. In 1936 he was elected president of the organization, a post which he held up until 1945. It was from this position that Dinsmoor was initially involved in organizing measures for the protection of the historical monuments and works of art. In 1943 the American Council of Learned Societies appointed a Committee on the Protection of Cultural Treasures in War Areas with Dinsmoor as chairman. Later in the same year was formed the American Commission for the Protection and Salvage of Artistic and Historic Monuments in Europe. Thereafter all the activities of the ACLS Committee were channeled through the more broadly based Commission to which Dinsmoor was appointed by President Roosevelt. The first great need was to produce plans of the cities in which American military forces were likely to be operating—plans on which historic monuments were prominently marked so as to facilitate their preservation whether in land operations or bombing attacks. In addition to the production of maps, the Commission saw to the preparation of handbooks on the care and preservation of monuments and works of art and to the giving of lectures on these subjects to members of the armed forces. As territory was recovered from the enemy, reports were made on the condition of monuments, and, finally an active part was taken by the staff of the Commission in tracking down and restoring to their rightful owners great numbers of “displaced works of art.”

Gratified though he was by the accomplishments of the three strenuous years of the Commission’s existence, Dinsmoor was happy to be able to return to active scholarship in 1946. Throughout his long career Dinsmoor’s interests were focused chiefly on the buildings on and around the Athenian Acropolis. His earliest articles are devoted to a re-editing and re-interpretation of the so-called “Building Accounts.” These remarkable documents are publications in marble of the proceedings, including the receipt and expenditure of money, of the commissions that supervised various building operations, like the Parthenon, Erechtheum, Propylaia, Temple of Athena Nike, and the colossal statue of Athena Promachos.

Another series of Dinsmoor’s early articles has to do with the entrance to the Acropolis and the monuments that bordered the approach.  Already in 1910 in an article on the gables of the Propylaia he brilliantly solved the principal outstanding problems regarding the design of that remarkable building. The article of 1910 was presented as only the first step in a comprehensive publication of the Propylaia, a theme to which he returned repeatedly in later life; but his book, like the building itself, was to remain a splendid, unfinished torso.

On the Acropolis Dinsmoor devoted himself to the study of two shrines (Erechtheum, Parthenon) of the goddess Athena. In a series of massive articles (1932, 1934, 1935, 1937, 1947) he reviewed all the relevant archaeological and literary evidence to arrive at conclusions that are as clear and plausible as the available evidence now permits. Another Doric temple beloved by Dinsmoor was that of Apollo at Bassae. Early in his study of the building Dinsmoor became fascinated by the problem of recovering the original arrangement of the twenty-three slabs of sculpted frieze which were found in the ruins of the temple. Dinsmoor published his first results in 1933.

The best known and most influential of all Dinsmoor’s writings is The Architecture of Ancient Greece (1950).  The book traces the development of architecture in Greek lands from the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic period.Other publications include The Archons of Athens in the Hellenistic Age (1931) in which Dinsmoor attempted to place in their correct sequence the annual chief magistrates of Athens. Soon after his retirement from Columbia University, Dinsmoor took up residence in Athens, and there passed the last 12 years of his life. In 1969 he received the gold medal for distinguished archaeological achievement from the Archaeological Institute of America. On July 2, 1973 he quietly passed away and was laid to rest in the First Cemetery of Athens.

The ASCSA Archives received the William Bell Dinsmoor Family Papers in 1978 by his son William Bell Dinsmoor, Jr. in five boxes along with two boxes filled with off-prints.

[The biographical essay is based on the necrology written by Homer A. Thompson and published in the Year Book of the American Philosophical Society, 1974, pp. 156-163.]

SERIES VIII. AMERICAN COMMISSION FILES

The American Commission files were created during and immediately after the Second World War, when William Bell Dinsmoor was president of the Archaeological Institute of America, chairman of the American Council of Learned Societies’ Committee on the Protection and Salvage of Artistic and Cultural Treasures in Europe, and a member of the government’s American Commission on the Protection and Salvage of Artistic and Cultural Treasures in Europe.

The American Committee and Commission were both founded as a response to widespread looting and destruction of monuments, archival and art collections, and other cultural treasures carried out by the Nazis through official and unofficial channels.  The Committee was established in August 1943 with several aims.  First, they meant to collect information on the people involved in looting, what had been looted and where it had been taken.  The intention was both to facilitate post-war restitution and counter Axis claims of Allied looting and destruction.  The Committee also created a series of maps for the armed forces, which showed the location of cultural treasures on the theory that, if the air force knew, for example, that the Louvre was a cultural treasure, they might not bomb it.

The Commission was created in response to concerns in the museum and academic communities that cultural treasures be protected.  Different agencies and individuals were interested in questions of protection, damage, looting, restitution and reparation of works of art. In theory, the Commission would act as a liaison between non-governmental organizations like the Committee and government bodies like the Departments of War and State so that ‘works of cultural value may be protected in countries occupied by armies of the United Nations’. Cooperation of experts on cultural material of all kinds with the military authorities on the protection and restitution of such material was fundamental for the success of such a project. A project that not only required a lot of coordination, but that was also multifaceted: it involved collection of information (namely information about the location of monuments and buildings housing cultural treasures and plotting these onto maps), circulating information (to be included in instructions issued to army forces) and educating civilians and military officers (public lectures, seminars). It was also a project that required different actions to be taken during the different phases of the war (pre-invasion phase, invasion phase and post-invasion phase).

The Dinsmoor American Commission Papers contain correspondence, manuscripts, drafts, lecture notes, notes, maps, photographs, newspaper clippings and publications concerning the work of the Commission. The papers also include file of reports on the status of the American School during the war (Box 59, folder 6) and the excavation and management of antiquities. There are also handbooks created for the armed forces and the war-time government that list cultural treasures in the countries under control of the Third Reich and for archives in Germany itself.

For further reading on the work of the Commission, the Report of the American Commission for the Protection and Salvage of Artistic and Historic Monuments in War Areas 1946 (Box 63, folder 5), summarizes the work of the Commission, its history, and provides an index of people involved with the work of the Commission.  For context, The Rape of Europa (1994), by Lynn H. Nicholas, covers the art scene in Europe from the rise of the Nazis until the present.  The Spoils of War. World War II and its Aftermath: The Loss, Reappearance, and Recovery of Cultural Property (1997), edited by Elizabeth Simpson, covers the history of looting in World War II, the reappearance of some of the works previously considered lost, and the conventions governing art during wartime.

Subseries VIIIa. The American Commission – History Files
The American Commission - History Files. These folders preserve their original headings and contain correspondence concerning the organization and running of the Commission. Through the correspondence in these files one can examine the ideology behind the proposal for the protection of cultural treasures in war areas, the problem of restitution and reparation of works of art (a major issue being works of art that were destroyed or lost during the war) and cooperation ( or sometimes overlapping of interests) with other committees and agencies, such as the American Defense-Harvard Group. One can also follow the practical concerns of the commission, such as issues of communication, contacting individuals who could serve the goals of the Commission, making decisions on individuals and professional groups to be included in the Committee and the Commission, creating lists of cultural material to be protected in each country, and of course the problem of funding the work of the Commission. Duplicates of many documents can be found in other series of the collection.

Subseries VIIIb. The American Commission – Organization Files
The American Commission - Organization Files contain material pertaining to the creation, organization and work of the Commission. They include: a) Initial proposals associated with the creation of the American Commission, including the Memorandum to the President of the United States (1942) and outlines of the function and organization of the Commission (most of this material overlaps with material in the History Files in Series I); b) Minutes and Reports from the organization’s meetings (1943-1945), reports by various members and advisers of the Commission returning from trips abroad, most notably Dinsmoor’s reports from London (1944), Taylor’s report on looted property (1944) and Crosby’s report on his mission to Europe (1944, 1945); c) The American Commission Work with documents primarily concerning both the principles and goals of the Commission, and practical issues such as the filing system to be used; d) Correspondence with organizations and agencies, such as the Army Map Service of the War Department and various boards and societies (requests for maps and slides, order forms, collecting information). Special notice should be made of the ACLS Photographic Archive folder which represents an important part of the work of the Commission. The purpose of this project was, on one hand, to record visually the activities of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives program in war areas, and on the other to record the damage or survival of historic monuments and collections; e) Correspondence-Thematic. Some thematic categories, such as ‘Finances’ and ‘Transportation Requests’ have to do with the practical issues of running the Commission, while others have to do with research on individual countries. Of special interest is Box 59-Folder 6 on Greece, which also includes reports on the ASCSA; f) Correspondence-Alphabetical. Correspondence with individuals who were actively involved in the work of the Commission and maintained regular correspondence with either Dinsmoor himself, or other members of the Committee and/or Commission; and g) Correspondence-Chronological. Correspondence that has to do with the work of the Commission and could not be classified under the previous categories.

Subseries VIIIc. Material Collected from Other Organizations
The interests and aims of the Commission overlapped with those of other agencies, such as the American Council of Learned Societies’ Committee on the Protection and Salvage of Artistic and Cultural Treasures in Europe. The Commission collaborated with various agencies and collected information and documents useful for the work it carried out. Much of the material filed in this series has to do with damage and looting of monuments (see Box 62-Folder 4).

Subseries VIIId. Lectures – Publications
This series includes correspondence concerning public lectures given by members of the Commission and the Committee, especially on First Aid and Protection for Art Treasures and Monuments. Much of it pertains to lectures delivered at schools where officers were trained for military government service.  The series also contains publications by the Commission, such as the Report of the American Commission for the Protection and Salvage of Artistic and Historic Monuments in War Areas 1946 (Box 63-Folder 5), publications based on information provided by the Commission, such as the Civil Affairs Handbooks (Army Service Forces Manuals), (Box 64-Folders 1 and 2), and publications collected by the Commission.

Subseries VIIIe. MiscellaneousThis series contains most of the loose material that could not be classified under the other series, namely drafts and notes, articles, newspaper clippings and a folder labeled ‘Crosby-personal’, which contains documents and correspondence regarding Sumner McK. Crosby. A great deal of the material in this folder is not related to the work of the Commission and it is unclear why it was originally included in the Commission files.

• “Appendix VII: Architrave Blocks” (12 handwritten pages on paper of various sizes).
Also included is a small note book with notes in hand, two short letters (one from Cornelius Vermule dated 11 April 1959 regarding the Michaelis papers, one from Mathew I. Wiencke dated 10 July 1958 regarding photographs taken by Alison Frantz of the Parthenon frieze), and two pages of typed note re. Brommer’s Die Skulpturen der Parthenon-Giebel.

Folder 4
“Parthenon”

Folder 7
“The Author of Nointel’s Parthenon Drawings.”
• 5 pp. of text + 2 half pages of an appendix.
• 57 pp. of a small book that treats the subject written by one Carla Gottlieb and dated May 1949.
• Four copies of the “Carrey” drawings in ink on vellum.
• Two “key” pages of vellum with a schedule that allows the decipherment of the primary evidence: the handwriting of Carrey and others. These last pages will be extremely valuable for those working with the original documents.
This folder seems to have been seen by Dinsmoor as an Appendix to his book on the Parthenon frieze. He then seems to have used the Appendix on Carla Gottlieb’s book. Dinsmoor’s Appendix is unfinished; only 5 full typed pages are preserved along with 2 fragmentary typed pages. Carla Gottlieb’s book is preserved intact. Her conclusion is that Carrey is not the author of the Parthenon drawings commissioned by Nointel.

Clearly, WBD had embarked on a huge project although ultimately, little was produced for this book.

• A 37 pp. typed paper titled “The Origins of Cretan and Mycenaean Civilization as Viewed by Various Writers Since 1878.” The draft is fragmentary and missing the final pages and several pages between. In it D. treats the thought of such early archaeologists as Robert Pashey, T.A.B. Spratt, Schliemann, Dorpfeld and others.  The brief, one page, forward shows that this was a student paper. Maybe written while he was a student at the Harvard School of Architecture. The paper served as “scrap” paper for Dinsmoor’s calculations of astronomical points relevant to the Babylonian calander.
• A 25 pp. typed paper treating the sculpture of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia and its connection to the great wall paintings of the Classical period.  Significant for the development of WBD’s thoughts on architectural sculpture in the 5th century B.C.

BOX 49: METROLOGY-WEIGHTS AND MEASURES-COINACY

Folder 1
• Typed letter from WBD to R. G. Goodchild 3 June 1957. WBD asks Goodchild if he has available detailed measurements for the Roman mile. G. is asked on account of his excavations in Cyrene over the course of which he was able to roughly determine the position of Roman mile markers.
• Typed letter from R.G. Goodchild to WBD
• A two page typed letter from WBD to “Nora” (Nora E. Scott). WBD. asks N.S. if she might double check several measurements within the Egyptian cannon. Also included are copious references to earlier metrological study and WBD’s own opinion regarding the Egyptian and Samian metrological units.
• A 4 pp. typed and handwritten draft that appears to be an introduction to WBD’s treatment of linear metrology. WBD makes use of G. R. Stewart’s novel The Years of the City (Cambridge 1955) which gives a fictional treatment of the establishment of city-wide metrological units.
• A 13 pp. typed and handwritten draft treating the Samian cubit and foot. Included also are working notes taped into the text. Rough.
• A 3 pp. typed written and draft treating the Pseudo-Greek foot and cubit. The draft is very rough with a good deal of pasted notes.

Also of potential interest might be the fact that many of these notes are written on the backs of D.’s drafts for his The Architecture of Ancient Greece (1927).

Folder 2
• A 2 pp. typed letter to WBD from M. Farnsworth at the “Metal and Thermit Corporation” date 19 February 1957. Farnsworth excavated in the Agora in 1939. She tells WBD that she has recorded in her notebook 9 lead weights and their precise weight in grams. These are listed.

• A 4 pp. typed and handwritten draft treating coin dies.
• A 14 pp. typed and handwritten draft titled: “The Relation Between the Ionic and the Doric Foot.” In this study, WBD concludes that there is a concrete relationship between the Doric and Ionic foot. This relationship can be generally defined as 10DF:9IF, allowing for minor variations. He concludes that one of the systems was borrowed from the other or that at some point this relationship was codified (i.e. as Pheidon/Solon.) Also attached is a list of DF and IF measurements and several notes relevant to the study.
• An 11 pp. typed and handwritten draft titled: “Coinage Mina.” Treats methodological and metrological problems with the large scale weights in Athens.
• A 6 pp. typed draft treating Athenian silver tetradrachms and their weight and 4 pp. of handwritten notes.
• A 5 pp. treating the relationship between the Doric and Ionic mina and the cubic weights of the Doric and Ionic foot.
