ArchivalResource

Albrecht Goetze papers, 1923-1971 (inclusive).

The papers consist entirely of correspondence documenting the academic career of Albrecht Goetze. Although the letters touch on many aspects of his life, the bulk is concerned with the advancement of cuneiform studies and the discussion of technical problems in the field. Goetze's correspondence with government officials and with scholars in the United States and the Near East documents his work as the director of the American School of Oriental Research in Baghdad (1948-1956) and attendant political problems. As a refugee from Hitler, he was outspoken on political issues and attempted to aid fellow scholars similarly uprooted. A portion of the correspondence reveals his efforts on their behalf and expands on his political views. Other letters discuss university policies, including problems at Yale University, and foundation grants for scholars. Among Goetze's important correspondents are William F. Albright, Kurt Bittel, Hans Ehelolf, Jacob J. Finkelstein, Johannes Friedrich, Hans G. Güterbock, Thorkild Jacobsen, Carl H. Kraeling, Samuel N. Kramer, Benno Landsberger, Julius Lewy, Otto Neugebauer, Edith Porada, James B. Pritchard, Abraham Sachs, Edmond Sollberger, and Ephraim A. Speiser.
