Monuments Men

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Our research on each of the Monuments Men and Women is now in its fourth year. For those names in bold, we have completed biographies, and in most instances have a photograph. However, our research continues on each of the other names for which we have varying degrees of information. In some instances, we have just a name. We appeal to the public for help in completing these biographies. Anyone with information, including photographs, should contact eivy@monumentsmenfoundation.org.

The Roberts Commission

Established by FDR on 23 June 1943, and charged with promoting the preservation of cultural properties in war areas, provided this mission did not interfere with military operations. The Commission provided lists and reports on cultural treasures to military units, and proposed the establishment of the MFAA. The work of the ACLS and the Harvard group contributed greatly to the establishment of the Roberts Commission and provided the Commission with valuable prepared technical information.

American Committee of Learned Society (“ACLS”)

The Committee on the Protection of Cultural Treasures in War Areas of The American Committee of Learned Societies was established at the annual meeting of the American Council in January, 1943, and was aided financially by the Rockefellar Foundation and headquartered at the Frick Art Reference Library. Expert scholars, art historians, collectors, and artists - the most renowned in the world - aided the committee in compiling lists and preparing maps of the most important monuments and works of art to be protectetd. A master index of all works in occupied countries was developed, as well as an extensive photo archive collection.

The Harvard Group

Harvard faculty and local citizens established the group after the fall of Paris in June 1940 in order to provide expertise on cultural matters during the war. American and foreign scholars compiled information about cultural areas, monuments, and objects in Europe, and eventually their efforts contributed to the formation of the Roberts Commission.
