For many years, Dr. Bassett has conducted research on CIA's history. For some examples, visit http://cia.edu/history. At the top of that page, via the link "CIA at CMA," you can see 100 artworks in the Cleveland Museum of Art collection that were created by CIA people between 1882 and the present. A few profiles of historic alumni, like Tiffany lamp designer Clara Driscoll and interior architect and portrait artist Charles Sallée, can also be explored from this page.

On June 11, 2013, Mark Bassett's 1985 Ph.D. dissertation--John Horne Burns: Toward a Critical Biography--was published electronically: http://hdl.handle.net/10355/35623. This account draws from the novelist's correspondence, which, until recently, the family wouldn't allow to be published.

As a collector, dealer, and researcher specializing in American ceramics, Mark is frequently called on to speak on this subject and has curated several museum exhibitions.

Degree PhD and MA, University of Missouri-Columbia; BA, University of Alabama-Huntsville
