Gladys Davidson Weinberg, who with her husband cofounded the Museum of Art and Archaeology at MU, died Monday, Jan. 14, 2002, at Boone Hospital Center. She was 92.
"She was a presence in the museum. She knew everything and you could always ask her questions," said Pat Atwater, an 18-year museum volunteer. "She and her husband personified the museum."
Dr. Weinberg was born in New York City on Dec. 27, 1909, to Israel and Carrie Davidson.
Dr. Weinberg was a Research Fellow in the Museum of Art and Archaeology at MU. She was an honorary life member of the Archaeological Institute of America and received its Gold Medal for Distinguished Archaeological Achievement. She was also the recipient of the Percia Schimmel Award from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
A foremost authority on ancient and medieval glass, Dr. Weinberg completed undergraduate studies at McGill and New York Universities, after which she began her career in archaeology as a member of The Johns Hopkins University expedition to Olynthus, in ancient Greece, in 1931. She earned her doctoral degree from Johns Hopkins for her dissertation on the minor finds in Corinth following her time in Athens as a member of the American School Excavations at Corinth.
"Gladys saw things that others didn't," said Rabbi Michael Weinberg, Dr. Weinberg's nephew. "We were walking on a beach on the Mediterranean in Ashkelon, Israel. There was a rocky cliff not far from the beach. She said, 'That looks interesting.' I looked and saw only a cliff. Gladys came to the cliff, brushed away some stones and found an intact oil lamp."
"She was an individual with great personal warmth and generosity, whose lively approach to the study of antiquity is an inspiration to us all," said Osmund Overby, one of Dr. Weinberg's colleagues at MU.
"Listening to her vivid accounts of early excavations has been a memorable part of the archaeological education of students and colleagues alike, from Missouri to Athens to Jerusalem," said Overby.
In 1942, she married Saul S. Weinberg, an equally distinguished classical archaeologist.
The Weinbergs moved to Columbia in 1948 following Saul Weinberg's appointment to the MU faculty.
