The collection includes Dean Lockwood’s writings on subjects relating to Greek and Roman literature and Humanism, but also stories he authored and a translation of Winnie the Pooh into Latin. There is correspondence, especially relating to the publication of his book on Ugo Benzi, but also as a young man writing to his parents from Europe. Some of his correspondents include: L. Bertalot, Otto Fuchs, Charles Haskins and Rayner Kelsey. There are notes and three book-length manuscripts by Dean Lockwood on Ugo Benzi, Rinucci Aretini and Ferrara. In addition, there are papers relating to his teaching at Haverford College, including Latin plays, notes for class preparation, as well as exams for his classes in Medieval and Modern Latin.
Finally, there are selected photographs of Italy and a few other art objects. A box of antiquities includes 23 items of Greek or Roman origin and four boxes of plaster casts include medallions (box 1 of plaster cast objects), British and French Royals, classical series and cultural figures (box 2 of plaster cast objects) and friezes (boxes 3 and 4 of plaster cast objects). Information on these items includes: title, location (box no.), identifying features (name), dimensions of object, description and provenance.
The package contains a plaster cast of the profile of a bearded man, probably created at the turn of the 20th century by S.J. Kelly of Boston.
There are a number of boxes of Lockwood’s bibliographic sources on note cards.
A few items of interest, including two 15th-century Latin manuscripts have been removed to other locations (see Materials Removed at the end of the finding aid).
