Scheffer, Nathalie (1889-1981)

Historia biográfica

Scheffer was born Nathalie Petrovna Loukine in St. Petersburg, Russia in December 1889. She graduated from the Empress Catherine Institute. She married Prince Nicholas Sergeievich Wolkonsky (d. 1937), chamberlain to the Russian Czar, with whom she had two children, Peter and Dimitri. In 1930, she came to the United States with Wolkonsky and settled in Washington D.C. She later married Paul Scheffer (d. 1965), editor-in-chief of the Berliner Tageblatt and subsequently a Washington correspondent. Scheffer died on December 11, 1981.

Scheffer joined the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection in 1945, as head of the Slavic Division, a position she held until her retirement in 1965. During her time at Dumbarton Oaks, Scheffer prepared a corpus of research notes on the iconography of the Virgin. In 1967, Scheffer published a monograph Русская православная икона [Russian Orthodox Icons] (Vashington, 1967). In addition to her work on Russian icons and ecclesiastical art, Scheffer published her memoirs under a pseudonym [Natalia Petrova, Twice born in Russia: My Life Before and in the Revolution (New York: W. Morrow & company, 1930)].

Historia archivística

This collection was the product of Scheffer’s employment as the Head of the Slavic Division in the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library from 1945 to 1965. After her retirement, Scheffer donated her materials to Dumbarton Oaks. However, due to the lack of documentation, it is difficult to determine the complete acquisition history for this collection.

Origen del ingreso o transferencia

The papers were subsequently transferred to the Byzantine Photograph Collection, now known as the Image Collections and Fieldwork Archives (ICFA), and were later found in the former Curator’s office.
