Creator Peabody, Charles, 1867-1939
Administrative/Biographical History Charles Peabody (1867-1939) was the son of the Phillips Academy Department of Archaeology (Robert S. Peabody Foundation for Archaeology; Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology) founder, Robert S. Peabody. He received his BA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1889, and from Harvard University, an AM in 1890 and a PhD in Classical Philology in 1893. He married Jeannette Ennis Belo in 1895; the couple had four children: Jeannette Felicie, Margaret, Caryl, Alfred Horatio Belo. Charles was appointed Honorary Director of the Phillips Academy Department of Archaeology (Robert S. Peabody Foundation for Archaeology; Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology) in 1901, though the department's annual reports indicate he received no salary. Peabody maintained his residence at 197 Brattle Street in Cambridge, near Harvard, where he was an instructor in European archaeology. In 1923 Peabody made his home permanently in France, resigning from his position as honorary director of the Department of Archaeology.
Scope & Content The Charles Peabody records consist of several clippings about the Phillips Academy Department of Archaeology, mostly from the school's newspaper The Phillipian. There is also a formal invitation to the opening exercises of the department's new building in 1903, an edited archaeological bulletin of the department and empty envelopes.
