On offer is a super, original manuscript relic of one young man's education and observations in archaeology pre World War I. As the cover states: the book is the "Journal of Herbert Wing Jr, American School, Athens, Greece, November 15, 1913." This notebook contains approx 100+ pages of notes and observations from Wing, mostly related to his classes at the American School which focused on Greek history and archaeology. Wing would go on to a celebrated career in Greek Studies. BIO NOTES: Herbert Wing, Jr. was born on December 8, 1889 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but was reared in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard University in 1901 and furthered his education at the University of Wisconsin where he received his Ph. D., in 1915. He began teaching at the Wilmington High School in Wilmington, Massachusetts in 1909 as an Assistant Principal. Wing taught at the University of Wisconsin from 1910-1912 and from 1914-1915 as a Student Assistant in European History. He was an Associate Professor of European History at the University of Michigan's 1917 summer session. Wing came to Dickinson College in 1915 as an Associate Professor of Greek Language and Literature. In 1920 he became full Professor of Greek Language and Literature. While at Dickinson College, Wing taught many courses in German, Greek, Latin and all types of History courses. Every freshman from 1916-1946 was required to take Wing's Ancient History course. He was the Chairman of the Greek Department and the Chairman of the History Department since 1937. In 1948, Wing was the first incumbent of the Robert Coleman Chair of History. Wing retired in 1960 with Professor Emeritus rank. In addition to teaching, Wing was a successful debate coach. The students gave him honorary membership into Omicron Delta Kappa, Tau Kappa Alpha and Pi Gamma Mu, all honor societies. Wing also was the faculty member in charge of the bookstore at Dickinson College. He ran the bookstore for over twenty-seven years. Wing held the position of secretary of the faculty from 1940-1946. Many referred to Wing as "Mr. 3 by 5," because of his insistence for students to take notes on assigned readings on three by five inch index cards. Wing married Helen Leonard Gilman in1916 and had one son who graduated from Dickinson College. A letter from President Corson shows the college's appreciation for Wing's involvement at Dickinson. Herbert Wing, Jr., died on September 13, 1972.
