Series VII.C. Scholars' papers, 1837-1914, 1950-1967, undated

Physical Description: 6.7 linear feet, 2 flat file folders, 1 roll

Scope and Content Note

In addition to the papers of Matteo Della Corte and Tatiana Warscher, which form the core of this archive, Vander Poel acquired smaller collections of material belonging to three other Campanian scholars. Pietro Soprano and G. Oscar Onorato were archaeologists who worked at Pompeii and other Campanian sites in the mid-twentieth century. H. J. Johnston-Lavis was one of the leading authorities on southern Italian volcanoes in the late nineteenth century.
 

Series VII.C.1. Pietro Soprano papers, 1881, 1959-1967, undated

Physical Description: 3.7 linear feet, 2 flat file folders, 1 roll

Scope and Content Note

Materials related to Pietro Soprano's research at Pompeii and Stabiae comprise this subseries. Soprano served as Area Head of the excavations at Stabiae from 1962 until his death in 1968, and had previously worked with the Pompeii excavations.
Soprano also acquired a portion of Matteo Della Corte's papers and library after his death. Vander Poel appears to have felt that he came by them unfairly and purchased many of these items after Soprano's own death in order to reassemble Della Corte's material (see Box 40, Folder 5 and Box 83, Folder 7).
Included here are photographs of the Stabiae excavations, plans of the site, bibliography on Pompeii and Herculaneum and notes on various Campanian topics.

Series VII.C.3. Henry James Johnston-Lavis papers, 1837-1914, undated

Physical Description: 2.8 linear feet

Scope and Content Note

Born in Britain in 1856, Henry James Johnston-Lavis became interested in geology as a boy. Although he went on to pursue a medical degree at University College, London, he never abandoned his early interest in geology. In 1880 he moved to Naples as a consulting physician, where his geologic interests turned to Vesuvius and volcanoes. To the extent that, in 1893, Johnston-Lavis became Professor of Volcanology at the Regia Università. He was a prolific author producing over 200 works, the majority of which were on volcanology. In 1895, Johnston-Lavis moved to France, where he wrote on his twin interests of geology and medicine until his death in a car accident in 1914. Upon his death, the majority of his collection, including geological and volcanological specimens, photographs, books, paintings and engravings, went to University College, London, where they today form the Johnston-Lavis collection.
As part of his volcanic research, Vander Poel acquired a smattering of Johnston-Lavis material. This subseries contains correspondence, manuscripts on volcanological, medical and general topics, offprints of his articles and miscellaneous material.

Shipping and transfer lists for portions of the Campanian collection, 1982-1992

Physical Description: 128 leaves
 

Series X.  Non-Campanian materials, circa 1570-1996, bulk, 1932-1992

Physical Description: 28.1 linear feet, 36 flat file folders, 5 rolls

Scope and Content Note

A variety of non-Campanian materials accompanying the Campanian collection comprise this series. They reflect the broader range of Vander Poel's interests, and their distance from the Campanian focus of the collection varies. On the one hand, there are papers of two archaeologists, Friedrich-Wilhelm von Hase and Margaret Murray, not involved in Campania, as well as material relating to the archaeology of other areas of Italy and the world. Other material moves farther afield documenting elements of Vander Poel's art and antique collection or his interest in armaments.

Arrangement

The non-Campanian materials are arranged in seven subseries, by topic.
 

Series X.A.  Friedrich-Wilhelm von Hase papers, 1963-1995, undated

Physical Description: 3.3 linear feet, 1 flat file folder

Scope and Content Note

Friedrich-Wilhelm von Hase studied Classical Archaeology, Prehistory and Etruscology in Göttingen, Perugia and Rome. He is best known for his long tenure at the Römisch-Germanischen Zentralmuseum in Mainz from 1983 until his retirement as chief conservator in 2002.
Production materials, from manuscript to offprint, for many of Hase's publications form the bulk of this subseries. Also included is a small amount of correspondence and lecture material.

Series X.B.  Margaret Murray papers, 1905-1954, undated

Physical Description: 0.4 linear feet

Scope and Content Note

Margaret Alice Murray was born in India in 1863 to British parents. She returned to England in 1886 and in January 1894 enrolled in University College, London for classes in Egyptology with the recently appointed professor, W. M. Flinders Petrie. Trained by Petrie and his assistants, Murray would become the first woman to work full-time as an Egyptologist. She remained at University College, where she was appointed as a junior lecturer in 1898 and progressed through the academic ranks becoming an Assistant Professor in 1924. She was awarded an honorary doctorate in 1931.
While Petrie spent his time in the field, Murray's role was to remain in London, teaching the classes, which would prepare students to be sent out to Petrie in Egypt, running the administrative end of the Department of Egyptology and maintaining the Petrie Museum. This meant that the author of over eighty books and articles on ancient Egypt was only able to excavate with Petrie in Egypt for one season, at Abydos in 1902. Still, Murray found other outlets for her interest in field work, excavating in the summers in Malta, Minorca and Petra, as well as in England. Murray also had other interests in addition to Egyptology. She was an early suffragist and may be best known to the general public for her numerous publications on folklore and witchcraft. A gifted teacher, Murray retired from University College, London in 1935, having trained two generations of Egyptologists. She led an active retirement, remaining connected to the University until her death in 1963.
The majority of Margaret Murray's papers are held by University College, London. The material held by Vander Poel is limited, including a small selection of letters, lecture texts, and drawings for publication. The letters documenting the conflicts of the 1932 excavation season at Tell el Ajjul are especially important for the insight they provide on the late career of Sir Flinders Petrie.
