Classical Spies: American Archaeologists with the OSS in World War II Greece

By Allen, Susan Heuck

Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2013. Classical Spies is the first insiders account of the operations of the American intelligence service in World War II Greece. Initiated by archaeologists in Greece and the eastern Mediterranean, the network drew on scholars personal contacts and knowledge of languages and terrain. While modern readers might think Indiana Jones is just a fantasy character, Classical Spies discloses events where even Indy would feel at home: burying Athenian dig records in an Egyptian tomb, activating prep-school connections to establish spies code-named Vulture and Chickadee, and organizing parachute drops.Susan Heuck Allen reveals remarkable details about a remarkable group of individuals. Often mistaken for mild-mannered professors and scholars, such archaeologists as University of Pennsylvanias Rodney Young, Cincinnatis Jack Caskey and Carl Blegen, Yales Jerry Sperling and Dorothy Cox, and Bryn Mawrs Virginia Grace proved their mettle as effective spies in an intriguing game of cat and mouse with their Nazi counterparts. Relying on interviews with individuals sharing their stories for the first time, previously unpublished secret documents, private diaries and letters, and personal photographs, Classical Spies offers an exciting and personal perspective on the history of World War II. 420p.bibliography.index.

Certain Samaritans

By Lovejoy, Esther Pohl

New York: Macmillan, 1927. An intrepid group of women formed the American Woman's Hospitals service during World War Iand first provided nursing and hospital services in France. In the aftermath of the war they turned their attention to other areas of urgent need, providing medical care and relief to the war-torn and destitute populations in Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Armenia, Russia and Turkey. The author provides her own eyewitness account of the destruction of Smryna in September 1922. The AWH follwed those refugees who survived to Greec and established emergency medical services in Greece with particular support for the refugee women and children of Asia Minor, efforts to control epidemics through a quarantine station on Makronissos, and assistance to a second wave of refugees from the Black Sea who were sent to Macdedonia and Thrace in the exchange of populations after the Treaty of Lausanne. The benefits provided were incalculable: "On the Ægean Islands and mainland of Greece, the American Women's Hospitals' service for refugees expanded beyond all expectations. During the past eleven years, 39 hospitals (including Near East Relief orphanage infirmaries) have been organized and conducted at different times and places. Scores of inlying and outlying clinics, a quarantine island, camps and barracks for pestilential diseases, food and clothing depots, health and child welfare centers, maternity service and nurses' training, have been carried on in connection with these hospitals" 302p. plates maps on endpapers. 1st.US Ed...
