Notes:
- The Ernst Herzfeld collection description is provided by Xavier Courouble, FSg Archives cataloger, based on Ernst Herzfeld's own publications, on handwritten captions from his original field research material, on FSg Archives accession documents for the Ernst Herzfeld Papers, on Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive, and finally on relevant scholars' publications and articles.
"Ernst Emil Herzfeld (1879-1948) was an orientalist whose many talents led him to explore all phases of Near Eastern culture, from the prehistoric period to Islamic times and from linguistics and religion to art and architecture." [Margaret Cool Root, 1976: "The Herzfeld Archive of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Metropolitan Museum Journal, Vol. 11, pp. 119-124."]
Summary:
The Papers primarly relate to Herzfeld's survey of the monuments, artifacts, and inscriptions of Western Asia between 1903 and 1947 and particularly to his excavations at Istakhr (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Paikuli (Iraq), Pasargadae (Iran), Persepolis (Iran), Samarra (Iraq), and Kuh-e Khwaja (Iran), as well as various archaeological expeditions throughout Cilicia, Mesopotamia, Northern Syria, and Persia. Additional research materials, probably collected by Moritz Sobernheim and Max Freiherr von Oppenheim but preserved by Ernst Herzfeld, were part of a broader project, that of Max van Berchem's "Matériaux pour un Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum." Much of the research material he accumulated during this time was used in preparation for his nearly two hundred books, articles, and lectures.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 1: Travel journals, 1905-1928" is composed of eight travel journals: 1) FSA A.6 01.01 provides first an account of a trip (October 25 to November 19, 1928) to Khurramabad in which Herzfeld accompanied Reza Shah, and second an account of a trip (February 17 to March 19, 1929) from Tehran to Kuh-e Khwaja; 2) FSA A.6 01.02 provides an account of a trip (September 2 to November 18, 1905) from Assur to Shiraz ("Von Kalat Schergat nach Schiraz, 1905"); 3); FSA A.6 01.03 provides an account of a trip (November 23 to January 03, 1906) from Shiraz to Constantinople ("Von Schiraz nach Teheran und Constantinopel, 1905"); 4) FSA A.6 01.04 provides an account of a trip (February 14 to November 14, 1923) from Berlin to Pasargadae ("Tagebuch.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks" is composed of 131 folders including a large variety of locations, names, topics, genres, and languages. As of today, only four inventories of objects (ledgers) have been digitized and are available online: 1) FSA A.6 03.089 provides an inventory of objects collected or acquired in several cities throughout Mesopotamia and Persia in 1923 and 1924; 2) FSA A.6 03.090 provides an abbreviated and corrected version of FSA A.6 03.089 as well as a continuation of FSA A.6 03.091; 3) FSA A.6 03.091 provides a continuation of FSA A.6 03.089, to which Herzfeld added an inventory of objects collected or acquired in several cities throughout Persia in 1926 and 1927, 1929, and finally 1932 and 1933; 4) FSA A.6 03.092 comprises a finds journal from the excavation of Pasargadae in 1928 as well as a random inventory of Near Eastern prehistoric objects.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files" contains 3,890 glass negatives, chronogically numbered from 1 to 5,066, which were originally stored in wooden boxes of 50 photographs each. Of most of these, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, Herzfeld assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, many given by Herzfeld's sister to George Miles and later donated to the Freer Gallery of Art, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 10 additional files in excess of the 24 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 5: Drawings and Maps" comprises 1,562 drawings and 70 maps, published and unpublished, with observations on topography, landscape, archaeological remains, architecture, and artifacts.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 6: Paper Squeezes of Inscriptions" is organized into three subdivisions: FSA A.6 06.A, 100 items, inscriptions in Arabic language; FSA A.6 06.C, 129 items, inscriptions in Cuneiform writing; FSA A.6 06.M, 164 items, Middle-Persian and Parthian inscriptions. The paper squeezes relate primarly to several archaeological expeditions carried out by Ernst Herzfeld in the Middle East, from 1908 to 1934; to a trial excavation and an excavation campaign carried out by Ernst Herzfeld in Persepolis and several nearby sites, from 1923 to 1934; and to three expeditions to Paikuli (Iraq), in 1911, 1913, and 1923.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 7: Records of Samarra Expeditions" is organized into 15 units of original materials (drawings, sketches, sketchbooks, correspondence, notebooks, photographs, blueprints, notes, diaries, prints, journals, publications, articles, clippings, rubbings) from two campaigns of excavation at Samarra in Iraq, carried out by Ernst Herzfeld on behalf of the Kaiser Friedrich Museum in Berlin between the years 1911 and 1913.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 8: Archaeological Artifacts" contains 101 numbered objects, ranging from H1 to H101, and 3 unnumbered artifacts. The numbers are those painted in red on the objects when they were listed by Dr. Richard Ettinghausen. The medium of these artifacts comprises metal (8), wood (10), stone (4), pottery (60), glass (6), stucco (4), bone or ivory (8), painted plaster (1). As stated in Herzfeld's Statement of Gift to Dr. Wetmore, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, the artifacts were considered as library and study material only. They were finally transferred to the Freer Study Collection in February, 14, 1984."
