The American Academy 1947–54, Reopening and Reorientation: A Personal Reminiscence
Thanks to the efforts of Trustee Rea Hederman and the enthusiastic support of the Publications Committee, The American Academy 1947–54, Reopening and Reorientation: A Personal Reminiscence covers Lawrence Richardson’s experiences as a Fellow in classical studies. The book also chronicles the launch and early seasons of the Academy’s excavations at Cosa; life in Rome and at the Academy itself; the Fellows, Residents, and staff in those years; and his own work on Roman painting and architecture at Pompeii. Photographs from the Academy Archives and Richardson’s personal collection are also included.
Richardson was a Fellow in 1950 and a Resident in 1979. He was also an Academy Trustee from 1969 to 1992. The book was edited by Harry B. Evans, a 1973 Fellow and 1992 Resident.
