This is a processing blog created by ICFA staff to chronicle the assessment and processing of the Robert L. Van Nice Records and Fieldwork Collection (1937-1985). Clare Moran, ICFA intern in 2011-2012, is the blog's author.
Robert Lawrence Van Nice (1910-1994) conducted a large scale study of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey, from 1937-1985, and was a Research Associate of Dumbarton Oaks starting in 1955. The 70+ boxes of material produced during Van Nice’s survey include notebooks, research papers, rubbings of graffiti, brick stamps, and mason’s marks, blue prints, drawings, B&W photographs, slides, negatives, correspondence, and administrative papers. The papers have never been fully processed until now, and we hope to describe here the new things that we find and the lessons we learn while tackling this large and rich collection.
PLEASE NOTE: As of July 2012, we have moved the Robert Van Nice processing blog to ICFA's departmental blog. All of Clare Moran's posts have been archived and are accessible through http://icfadumbartonoaks.wordpress.com/.
This page represents the wide variety of collections and projects from the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library, Rare Book Collection, Image Collections and Fieldwork Archives, and the Dumbarton Oaks Archives. Through this page we hope to continue the overall mission of Dumbarton Oaks by sharing information concerning our multi-formatted collections, as well as the institutional history of Dumbarton Oaks.
