Paul Mitchell was an interesting guy. He was an Amherst trained scientist, a Christian missionary, a veteran of both world wars, a camp director at the school’s summer Camp Wapanaki, and the author of at least three books. But the thing on his resume that really interests me was his work right after World War II. Stationed in Korea, he oversaw the protection of their museums and religious shrines. He was a “monument man.” And there is nothing humble about that.
