More on Alice Kober

Tip o’ the pileus to Ron Janoff (of New York Latin Leaflet fame) for alerting us to the existence online of Alice Kober’s papers … there are a pile of (mostly handwritten) letters in there which are definitely a fascinating read and give a glimpse into how Classical research was done before email, twitter, etc.:

… it might be worthwhile compiling online ‘papers collections’ of Classicists … hmmm

One thought on “More on Alice Kober

  1. Reblogged this on Linear B, Knossos & Mycenae and commented:
    Folks, if you don not know about Alice Kober, you should, if you are at all interested
    in the decipherment of Linear B. Prior to Michael Ventris, she was the greatest
    contributor in the ongoing search for the key to Linear B.
