History notes:

Robert Woods Bliss and Mildred Barnes Bliss donated their home Dumbarton Oaks and its library and collections to Harvard University in 1940 to serve as a research center in Byzantine studies. In 1969, upon the death of Mildred Bliss, her Garden Library collection of rare and modern materials was willed to Harvard, to become a part of the over-all institution of Dumbarton Oaks, Trustees for Harvard University.

Dumbarton Oaks, given to the President and Fellows of Harvard College in 1940 by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wood Bliss as a research center for study in the Byzantine and Mediaeval Humanities, is held by the Trustees for Harvard University. It was subsequently enlarged to include Pre-Columbian art and the Garden Library.
