 E. McDowall (?-?) 



This name is included on a list of Monuments Men and Women compiled by Capt. Edith A. Standen during her service in postwar Germany. No first name was provided on her list.


Currently, the Foundation believes this individual to be Edward Benson McDowall (1909-1985), a British scientist who studied botany, zoology, and medicine at Trinity College, Oxford University. We know little of McDowall’s life following his graduation from Oxford in 1928.


The Foundation is very interested in confirming that Edward Benson McDowall is indeed the Monuments Man referenced to on Edith Standen’s list. If you have any information, please contact
