A front-page article Wednesday about Yale’s settlement with Eric Weinmann incorrectly stated that University General Counsel Dorothy Robinson said there is no evidence that the Weinmann family was looking for the disputed painting after World War II. Robinson said there is corroborating evidence the family was looking for the painting at that time.
The article also failed to attribute background information about painting donor Herbert Schaefer. The article stated Schaefer was a self-professed one-time Nazi storm trooper. In a January 2001 article, Schaefer told the Boston Globe that he was once a Nazi. In the same article, the Globe reported that Schaefer was a storm trooper during the early 1930s.
