"Classicist Francis Kelsey and the Dissolution of the Ottoman Empire" A little-known resource for developments in Asia Minor and Anatolia immediately preceding World War I, the Archive of the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology at the University of Michigan is the source for Prof. Leontis’ latest research. The Archive includes papers and photos of classicist Francis W. Kelsey. He made four expeditions to the Eastern Mediterranean between 1919 and 1926. He visited and photographed the burned city of Smyrna in 1924, as well as Constantinople, Adana, Aintab, Patmos, and Athens. Prof. Leontis is the author of Topographies of Hellenism: Mapping the Homeland (Cornell University Press, 1995), and Greece (Whereabouts Press, 1997).
