MetadataShow full item record
Wilhelmina F. Jashemski received the gold medal of the American Institute of Archaeology for books on the gardens of Pompeii and the Vesuvian area. These memoirs, illustrated with over 400 color photographs, tell the human story behind the scientific books. They recount how a woman from a small town in Nebraska learned more about the gardens of Pompeii than anyone thought possible. They cover the years 1955 to 2005, with flashbacks to earlier years. Jashemski was a professor of history at the University of Maryland.
