Auburn's Monuments Man:  Captain Robert K. Posey, U.S. Army (Auburn '26 and '27) and The Quest for the Mystic Lamb

Paul Harris, Department of Political Science and University Honors College

Date and Time:  Wednesday, September 10 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium, Ground Floor across the hall from Special Collections and Archives, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

With the establishment of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives (MFAA) of the U.S. Army in the Fall of 1943, Auburn graduate U.S. Army Captain Robert K. Posey was assigned to General Patton's Third Army.  As a Monuments officer, Posey was responsible for protecting and preventing further damage to cultural treasures in war ravaged Europe as well as tracking down stolen art works.  His biggest discovery was the Ghent Altarpiece also known as "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb."  The artwork was stolen by the Nazis in 1942 and stored in an Austrian salt mine.  For his efforts in saving the "Mystic Lamb" Posey was awarded Belgium's highest honor, "The Order of Leopold."
