Oriental Institute Research Archives Staff 1973-2012

 
This is a listing of the librarians and staff of the Oriental Institute Research Archives from its founding in 1973 until today. It is based partly on information included in the Oriental Institute Annual Reports, and partly on my own memory. The first section is a chronological list, the second section an alphabetical list. If I have inadvertently omitted anyone, please let me know, and I will add them instantly.

I'd add myself here; the majority of the library research component of my dissertation was undertaken on those uncomfortable chairs:

Ur, J. A. 2004. Urbanism and Society in the Third Millennium Upper Khabur Basin. PhD dissertation, University of Chicago.

Responding to Jason's seven month old comment.

It might be worth compiling a list of those who spent the best years of their lives on those uncomfortable chairs writing dissertations. I expect it would be a formidably distinguished list.
