The Harvard University Department of the Classics has agreed to administer a memorial fund to honor Professor Ševčenko with the purchase of books for Harvard's Smyth Classical Library. Books purchased with the fund will be of special interest to Byzantinists and will bear a commemorative bookplate.
The Smyth Classical Library, housed in a large, separate room on the third floor of Widener Library, contains a working collection of over 9,000 text editions, monographs, standard reference works, and materials for specialized fields such as palaeography and epigraphy. It is a non-circulating collection which serves as a research resource for members of the Department of the Classics (students and faculty) and interested members of the Harvard community.
In lieu of sending flowers, we invite you to contribute to the Fund by sending a check (drawn on any currency) payable to “Harvard Dept. of Classics: Ihor Ševčenko Fund” to the following address:
