Finding aid, based on Joseph M. Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive, 1974, is available in the Archives Department and on Internet
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Notebooks were included in a larger body of diverse material acknowledged by Ernst Herzfeld as his study collection. In the early 1970s, Joseph Upton, for research purpose, rearranged the collection and created a specific series (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks, 1904-1946, 1957, n.d.) for 131 notebooks, including four ledgers and eight travel journals. Upton has given this notebook an accession number, N-105, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-105 reads, "Contains bibliographical references to following buildings as well as inscriptions and sketches of some architecture or ornament. Buildings primarily in Damascus, Aleppo, Hamah and Homs (Hims), but also Madrasa Nizamiyya (Khargird), Imam Dur, Dhu-1 Kifl, Masjid-i 'All (Isfahan), Zubair, Kharg and Baba Munir (Fars)."
