Overview and metadata sections

Gardner, John Dunn

John Dunn Gardner was a nineteenth-century high sheriff of Cambridgeshire, England, who traveled a great deal in Europe, Greece, and Turkey.

The collection consists of selected papers of Gardner. Included are a journal of a trip, primarily by rail, through Paris, Western Europe, on to Constantinople and other cities and villages in Turkey, from October 1855 to January 1856, with some reference notes in Greek; an autograph manuscript and notes for Gardner's pamphlet, "The Ionian Islands in Relation to Greece..." (1859), discussing the governing policy of England over these islands which were under a British protectorate from 1815-1864; and clippings of reviews of the work.

Acquired with matching funds provided by the Program in Hellenic Studies with the support of the Stanley J. Seeger Hellenic fund (AM1995-103).
