Located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC, Dumbarton Oaks was donated to Harvard University in 1940 as gift from Mr. and Mrs. Robert Woods Bliss. Currently, the Dumbarton Oaks Center offers a number of fellowships in its three areas of academic inquiry, which include Byzantine studies, pre-Columbian studies, and landscape architecture. The organization is also well known for their numerous edited volumes, which deal with the aforementioned research topics. Some of those volumes can be downloaded from this site, and cover a wide array of subjects, including pieces of Byzantine-period gardens and works on gender in pre-Hispanic America. Divided into the center's three main research areas, the lists of works contain a brief abstract about each volume and links to each chapter in the work.
