1952-1973
(Bulk: 1960-1971)
Creator:
Bass, George Fletcher, 1932-
Extent: 27 linear foot (the collection consists of twenty-seven archival boxes of data of which seventeen boxes contain correspondence. there are six boxes of expedition records and four boxes of photographs)
George Fletcher Bass, a pioneer in the field of Underwater Archaeology, was born in South Carolina in 1932. Planning to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather who were Professors of English, he enrolled at Johns Hopkins University. A trip to Rome and the sight of the Roman antiquities altered Bass'life. After returning to Johns Hopkins, Bass spent two years at the School of Classical Studies in Athens followed by enrollment at Penn for his Ph.D. studies in classical archaeology. Bass was chosen in 1960 by Rodney Young, Professor and Chairman of Classical Archaeology at Penn and the Curator of the Mediterranean Section of the Penn Museum to direct the underwater excavation of a Bronze-Age shipwreck in Cape Gelidonya, Turkey. This event marked the beginnings of underwater archaeology as a discipline and as Bass'life's work. Bass conducted additional expeditions in Turkey at Yassi Ada, sponsored by the University Museum and the American Institute of Nautical Archaeology as well as the Thera Excavations sponsored by the Greek Department of Antiquities. Additional excavations were conducted in Italy at a Neolithic and Bronze Age site near Gravina di Puglia. Bass participated in or supervised additional work at Bodrum and Antolya, Turkey. In 1972, George Bass established the Institute of Nautical Archaeology and decided to make this organization the next step in his career. He became not only the founder but the director of the Institute which is now housed at Texas A&M University. The George F. Bass Underwater Archaeology papers are composed of twenty-seven boxes of correspondence, expedition records, photographs and drawings mainly from his work at Cape Gelidonya and Yassi Ada.

The curatorial files encompass the period from the Section's inauguration by Museum President William Pepper in 1894 to the 1970s. While the material in the Mediterranean curatorial files dates from 1895 to 1979, the bulk of the collection dates to the earlier years (1895-1949) and within that period, the majority relate to Edith Hall Dohan.

Extent: 0.4 linear foot
In 1948, the Council of the Graduate School at the University of Pennsylvania approved the establishment of a Group Committee in Classical Archaeology. It was discovered years later that this committee had never been approved formally by the Board of the Trustees of the University. But a de facto graduate program had been established, and in 1975 the "Pritchard Committee" recommended to Dean Gregorian that Classical Archaeology be recognized as a graduate group, to consist of the four classical archaeologists already on staff, plus additional members from other groups. The records of the Mediterranean Section, Classical Archaeology Department (CLARC)consist of one archival box of twelve folders. The material is divided into two series, Correspondence and Administration.

Creator:
Cammann, Schuyler V. R. (Schuyler Van Rensselaer), b. 1912

The University Museum Expedition to Afghanistan spent six months in 1953 excavating the Bactrian sites of Balkh and Kunduz. The expedition was helmed by Rodney S. Young (Curator of the Mediterranean Section), Schuyler Cammann (Associate Curator in the Oriental Section), and Dorothy Hannah Cox, with additional scouting and surveying work performed by Carlton Coon. Uncovering evidence of the area's pre-Buddhist historical record was this expedition's primary focus. The textual records of the expeditions to Balkh and Kunduz consist of .4 linear feet of correspondence, inventories, preliminary reports, published reports, excavation agreements, field notes, and images. The records have been compiled from two sources: the papers of Dr. Schuyler Cammann (contributed in 1992) and the records of the Asian Section Office at the Museum of the University of Pennsylvania, an ongoing contribution of records to the Archives over time. Because very similar records were found in both sets of source materials (e.g., correspondence from the same exchange), the records were integrated and then divided into four series: Correspondence, Reports, Field Notes, and Images.
