Vander Poel (Halsted) Campanian collection
Series I. Matteo Della Corte papers, 1890-1997, undated, bulk 1902-1961 101.7 linear feet, 22 flat file folders
Series I.C. Research materials, 1903-1997, undated, bulk 1903-1961 47.8 linear feet, 21 flat file folders
This subseries contains circa 3,000 items of Matteo Della Corte's research materials, including notes on his original research, notes taken from secondary sources, documentary photographs and drawings. Two categories of materials hold particular interest and document Della Corte's research on the graffiti and inscriptions of Pompeii: his field notes, and his lucidi, tracings and drawings on vellum.
A collection of 71 bound notebooks contains Della Corte's field notes. The notes include sketches of inscriptions, plans of buildings, and observations on house contents, as well as other original documentation of Della Corte's research at Pompeii and related sites. These notebooks also functioned as a general diary for Della Corte and often include reading notes, addresses, drafts of letters, notes to himself, and other miscellaneous material. A numbered series of these notebooks covers the period from 1907 to 1941, but unnumbered notebooks cover the broader period from 1905 to 1959. These general field notes are arranged in rough chronological order. Other notebooks containing Della Corte's original research, often focusing on specific topics, follow.
Della Corte's lucidi and cards documenting inscriptions and graffiti at Pompeii and other Campanian sites form the second large category of original research material. Each lucido was placed inside a small envelope with identifying information. Some appear to be true tracings or rubbings, while others appear to be drawings on vellum. This documentation falls into several groups. The first group comprises a set of lucidi and cards numbered from 1 to 787 and dated from 1903 to 1910. The series is incomplete, becoming less complete as it progresses. The lucidi vary greatly in scale, and many are oversize. The lucidi are arranged in numerical order and grouped chonologically, with individual oversize examples following each standard-sized group. Following this numbered series are other smaller groups of lucidi defined by date or location.
Della Corte's general research materials and notes follow the lucidi. These include general notes, reading notes, translations and lists of material, as well as photographs and drawings. Very little of this material is dated and much is difficult to identify precisely.
Vander Poel commissioned the addition of a brief summary of the contents to many items in this subseries, as well as typescript copies, photocopies and notes on selected items.

The numbered cards and lucidi have been broken up into six groups, which reflect their arrangement as found. Due to the greatly varying size of the lucidi, a numeric range of standard-sized examples is presented first, followed by individual oversize examples from within that number range.

Plan of Pompeii partially derived from the Tascone/Mau 1:1000 plan of the city. The state of the excavations appear to date this plan to the later 1920s. The plan divides the area of Pompeii into sections starting at the northwest and working south and then east in strips. Sections a and b are the first in this series and then are followed by sections 1-13. Section a is lacking. Most sections have two copies and most copies have house numbers and other information added by hand. Parts of this map are labeled in Della Corte's hand, yet other sections were mixed in with Vander Poel's general mapping material.
