Whitney Stoddard graduated from Eaglebrook School and Deerfield Academy. In 1935 he graduated from Williams College and earned his Doctor of Philosophy degree in art history from Harvard University in 1941.
Whitney Stoddard had been teaching at Williams College for four years when America entered World War II in 1942. He served in the United States Navy, and when the war was over returned to Williams College as an assistant professor to 1948, an associate professor from 1948 to 1954, and a professor from 1954 to 1976, and he remained there until his retirement in 1982. While at Williams Stoddard helped expand the small college’s art department into a nationally known program whose graduates went on to jobs as directors of renowned art institutes and museums.
As a scholar, Stoddard was particularly interested in medieval French architecture and he led several research studies of the Benedictine Monastery of Saints Peter and Paul at Psalmodi. His writings reflect this interest as well and include such works as The West Portals of Saint Denis and Chartres (1952; revised edition, 1983); Monastery and Cathedral in France (1962), which was later published as Art and Architecture in Medieval France (1973); and The Sculptors of the West Portals of Chartres (1987). He was also the author of Adventure in Architecture (1958) and co-editor of The Macmillan Biography of Architects (1982).
In 2001, he produced the book, Reflections on the Architecture of Williams, with editor Thomas W. Bleezarde and photographer Arthur D. Evans. This earned him the Williamstown Historical Commission’s first preservation award.
