   Monuments Men and Women  

The following roster of names is a compilation of personnel lists created by Monuments Woman Capt. Edith A. Standen during her service in post-war Germany, and the official Report of the American Commission for the Protection and Salvage of Artistic and Historic Monuments in War Areas (the Roberts Commission) submitted to President Harry S. Truman in 1946. The roster includes the names of numerous foreign liaison officers, who represented their home countries during post-war restitution operations. Except in clear cases of documentable error, the Foundation has made no deletions to these two original source lists. The Foundation has, in a only a few instances, added names of individuals whose military service clearly evidenced their participation in the MFAA but, for various reasons, were overlooked when these two original source lists were compiled.

The Foundation staff is constantly reviewing its records, and those it periodically receives from interested parties, to further verify and update this roster and the information contained therein. Anyone with information about someone on this roster, or someone you believe should be included, should forward all relevant information and photographs to info @
