Descrizione: The Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection is housed in a nineteenth-century Federal-style house built on the crest of a wooded valley in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C. The name combines a reference to the original great oaks on the site, several of which are still standing, with the eighteenth-century name "Dumbarton," taken from the Rock of Dumbarton in Scotland. The property had been acquired by Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss in 1920. Twenty years later, they conveyed the house, gardens, and their collections to Harvard University. The institution now has important research resources in the areas of Byzantine studies, the history of landscape architecture, and Pre-Columbian studies. The collections of Byzantine and Pre-Columbian art and the rare books and prints relating to the gardens are on public display.
