Personal and professional papers of the German-born art historian and professor (1891-1980). The manuscripts, correspondence,
lecture notes, clippings, photographs, glass negatives, and audio recordings in this collection document With’s lifelong study
of Asian and modern art and his teaching, most notably at the University of California, Los Angeles.
The art historian Karl With (1891-1980) was a professor, curator and museum director. He spent his early years in Bremerhaven,
Germany, where his father was a renowned physician who had an interest in art. With entered university at Freiburg in 1910
to study literature, but he was uninspired by the learning atmosphere and the dominance of the fraternity system.
