Description
The Åke Åkerström papers record the scholarly career of this Swedish classical archaeologist. Åkerström's research interests and publications ranged from architectural terracottas in Asia Minor to Etruscan tomb typology to Mycenaean pottery in Greece, and this breadth is reflected in the research notes, photographs, postcards, drawings, correspondence, manuscripts, and typescripts that constitute the Åkerström papers. The archive also includes a substantial amount of material that originated with Lennart Kjellberg and Axel W. Persson, earlier scholars whose work Åkerström continued.
Background
Åke Åkerström (1902-1991) studied classical archaeology at Uppsala University under Axel W. Persson. After receiving his doctorate in 1934 with a dissertation on Etruscan tomb typology, Åkerström pursued a long career as an excavator, administrator and scholar.
