Georgiana Potts ( ? - ? )

Georgiana Potts worked as a civilian secretary for the Arts and Monuments Division of the Civil Information and Education Section under the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers (SCAP). Based in Tokyo, Japan, the Arts and Monuments Division was staffed by the MFAA but existed on a much smaller scale than its European counterpart. Under the direction of Officer in Charge Monuments Man Lt. Cdr. George Stout, the office included Monuments Men Capt. Walter Popham, Lt. Richard S. Davis, Lt. Sherman Lee, and Maj. Laurence Sickman, among others.

The Foundation is very interested in learning more about Georgiana Potts’s life, as well as her work with the MFAA. If you have any information, please contact abottinelli@monumentsmenfoundation.org.
