In 1922 he published''The History of the Balkan Peninsula: From the Earliest Times to the Present Day''. Schevill retired in 1924. In 1930 he reentered the University in the Humanities General Course of general education. He retired five years later to finish ''The History of Florence'' (1936).

Schevill continued to research, and in his eightieth year he went from the University of Chicago to lecture in Frankfurt. During this period, Schevill specialized in the historiographies of famous writers from the Renaissance.

He was brother-in-law to the sculptor Karl Bitter. Provided by Wikipedia
