I'm the guest contributor this month on Natalia Vogeikoff-Brogan's blog, From the Archivist's Notebook, an intriguing collection of research projects on various aspects of archival research related to The American School of Classical Studies at Athens. During the autumn semester of my Regular Year at the ASCSA, I began a project of sifting through the letters of Zillah Pierce Dinsmoor, wife of the architect W.B. Dinsmoor (and mother to WBD Jr.). Starting in 1910, Zillah lived in Athens, Greece, with her husband, and wrote letters to her mother back in Massachusetts nearly every week for years. My research into her life in early 20th century Athens led down a number of fascinating paths, and you can read more about my adventures in the ASCSA Archives (and see some wonderful old photos!) by clicking on the link here.
