Date:

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 12", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 128 photographic prints of Arabic, Aramaic, Greek, and Samaritan inscriptions found at Tripoli (Lebanon), Damascus (Syria), and Palmyra (Syria), as well as family portraits of Moritz Sobernheim and Ernst Herzfeld.
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- "Photo File 12" is composed of 128 photographic prints, made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.3210; FSA a.6 04.GN.3189; FSA a.6 04.GN.3190; FSA a.6 04.GN.3197; FSA a.6 04.GN.3212; FSA a.6 04.GN.3211; FSA a.6 04.GN.3856; FSA a.6 04.GN.3862; FSA a.6 04.GN.3865; FSA a.6 04.GN.3547; FSA a.6 04.GN.3550; FSA a.6 04.GN.3422; FSA a.6 04.GN.3546; FSA a.6 04.GN.3859; FSA a.6 04.GN.3858; FSA a.6 04.GN.3861; FSA a.6 04.GN.3860; FSA a.6 04.GN.3863; FSA a.6 04.GN.3864; FSA a.6 04.GN.3579; FSA a.6 04.GN.3582; FSA a.6 04.GN.3425; FSA a.6 04.GN.3541; FSA a.6 04.GN.3424; FSA a.6 04.GN.3544; FSA a.6 04.GN.3545; FSA a.6 04.GN.3548; FSA a.6 04.GN.3539; FSA a.6 04.GN.3532; FSA a.6 04.GN.3533; FSA a.6 04.GN.3451; FSA a.6 04.GN.3453; FSA a.6 04.GN.3454; FSA a.6 04.GN.3456; FSA a.6 04.GN.3457; FSA a.6 04.GN.3391; FSA a.6 04.GN.3850; FSA a.6 04.GN.3776; FSA a.6 04.GN.3406; FSA a.6 04.GN.3423; FSA a.6 04.GN.3401; FSA a.6 04.GN.3403; FSA a.6 04.GN.3400; FSA a.6 04.GN.3404; FSA a.6 04.GN.3405; FSA a.6 04.GN.3399; FSA a.6 04.GN.3407; FSA a.6 04.GN.3402; FSA a.6 04.GN.3531; FSA a.6 04.GN.3601; FSA a.6 04.GN.3586; FSA a.6 04.GN.3552; FSA a.6 04.GN.3592; FSA a.6 04.GN.3594; FSA a.6 04.GN.3600; FSA a.6 04.GN.3771; FSA a.6 04.GN.3774; FSA a.6 04.GN.3866; FSA a.6 04.GN.3527; FSA a.6 04.GN.3529; FSA a.6 04.GN.3780; FSA a.6 04.GN.3779; FSA a.6 04.GN.3767; FSA a.6 04.GN.3766; FSA a.6 04.GN.3589; FSA a.6 04.GN.3580; FSA a.6 04.GN.3581; FSA a.6 04.GN.3769; FSA a.6 04.GN.3611; FSA a.6 04.GN.3602; FSA a.6 04.GN.3603; FSA a.6 04.GN.3605; FSA a.6 04.GN.3604; FSA a.6 04.GN.3606; FSA a.6 04.GN.3607; FSA a.6 04.GN.3608; FSA a.6 04.GN.3609; FSA a.6 04.GN.3612; FSA a.6 04.GN.3427; FSA a.6 04.GN.3428; FSA a.6 04.GN.3078; FSA a.6 04.GN.3079; FSA a.6 04.GN.3080; FSA a.6 04.GN.3081; FSA a.6 04.GN.3082; FSA a.6 04.GN.3083; FSA a.6 04.GN.3084; FSA a.6 04.GN.3085; FSA a.6 04.GN.3086; FSA a.6 04.GN.3087; FSA a.6 04.GN.3088; FSA a.6 04.GN.3089; FSA a.6 04.GN.3090; FSA a.6 04.GN.3091; FSA a.6 04.GN.3092; FSA a.6 04.GN.3093; FSA a.6 04.GN.3094; FSA a.6 04.GN.3095; FSA a.6 04.GN.3429; FSA a.6 04.GN.3430; FSA a.6 04.GN.3431; FSA a.6 04.GN.3432; FSA a.6 04.GN.3433; FSA a.6 04.GN.3434; FSA a.6 04.GN.3342; FSA a.6 04.GN.3247; FSA a.6 04.GN.3770; FSA a.6 04.GN.3574; FSA a.6 04.GN.3568; FSA a.6 04.GN.3576; FSA a.6 04.GN.3577; FSA a.6 04.GN.3575; FSA a.6 04.GN.3569; FSA a.6 04.GN.3570; FSA a.6 04.GN.3571; FSA a.6 04.GN.3240; FSA a.6 04.GN.3595; FSA a.6 04.GN.3522; FSA a.6 04.GN.3610; FSA a.6 04.GN.3597; FSA a.6 04.GN.3572; FSA a.6 04.GN.3573; FSA a.6 04.GN.3655; FSA a.6 04.GN.3695; FSA a.6 04.GN.3584; FSA a.6 04.GN.3758; FSA a.6 04.GN.3246; FSA a.6 04.GN.3761."
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, 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.

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 12", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 128 photographic prints of Arabic, Aramaic, Greek, and Samaritan inscriptions found at Tripoli (Lebanon), Damascus (Syria), and Palmyra (Syria), as well as family portraits of Moritz Sobernheim and Ernst Herzfeld.
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 11" is composed of 338 cyanotype prints (blueprints), made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.3210; FSA a.6 04.GN.3189; FSA a.6 04.GN.3190; FSA a.6 04.GN.3197; FSA a.6 04.GN.3212; FSA a.6 04.GN.3211; FSA a.6 04.GN.3856; FSA a.6 04.GN.3862; FSA a.6 04.GN.3865; FSA a.6 04.GN.3547; FSA a.6 04.GN.3550; FSA a.6 04.GN.3422; FSA a.6 04.GN.3546; FSA a.6 04.GN.3859; FSA a.6 04.GN.3858; FSA a.6 04.GN.3861; FSA a.6 04.GN.3860; FSA a.6 04.GN.3863; FSA a.6 04.GN.3864; FSA a.6 04.GN.3579; FSA a.6 04.GN.3582; FSA a.6 04.GN.3425; FSA a.6 04.GN.3541; FSA a.6 04.GN.3424; FSA a.6 04.GN.3544; FSA a.6 04.GN.3545; FSA a.6 04.GN.3548; FSA a.6 04.GN.3539; FSA a.6 04.GN.3532; FSA a.6 04.GN.3533; FSA a.6 04.GN.3451; FSA a.6 04.GN.3453; FSA a.6 04.GN.3454; FSA a.6 04.GN.3456; FSA a.6 04.GN.3457; FSA a.6 04.GN.3391; FSA a.6 04.GN.3850; FSA a.6 04.GN.3776; FSA a.6 04.GN.3406; FSA a.6 04.GN.3423; FSA a.6 04.GN.3401; FSA a.6 04.GN.3403; FSA a.6 04.GN.3400; FSA a.6 04.GN.3404; FSA a.6 04.GN.3405; FSA a.6 04.GN.3399; FSA a.6 04.GN.3407; FSA a.6 04.GN.3402; FSA a.6 04.GN.3531; FSA a.6 04.GN.3601; FSA a.6 04.GN.3586; FSA a.6 04.GN.3552; FSA a.6 04.GN.3592; FSA a.6 04.GN.3594; FSA a.6 04.GN.3600; FSA a.6 04.GN.3771; FSA a.6 04.GN.3774; FSA a.6 04.GN.3866; FSA a.6 04.GN.3527; FSA a.6 04.GN.3529; FSA a.6 04.GN.3780; FSA a.6 04.GN.3779; FSA a.6 04.GN.3767; FSA a.6 04.GN.3766; FSA a.6 04.GN.3589; FSA a.6 04.GN.3580; FSA a.6 04.GN.3581; FSA a.6 04.GN.3769; FSA a.6 04.GN.3611; FSA a.6 04.GN.3602; FSA a.6 04.GN.3603; FSA a.6 04.GN.3605; FSA a.6 04.GN.3604; FSA a.6 04.GN.3606; FSA a.6 04.GN.3607; FSA a.6 04.GN.3608; FSA a.6 04.GN.3609; FSA a.6 04.GN.3612; FSA a.6 04.GN.3427; FSA a.6 04.GN.3428; FSA a.6 04.GN.3078; FSA a.6 04.GN.3079; FSA a.6 04.GN.3080; FSA a.6 04.GN.3081; FSA a.6 04.GN.3082; FSA a.6 04.GN.3083; FSA a.6 04.GN.3084; FSA a.6 04.GN.3085; FSA a.6 04.GN.3086; FSA a.6 04.GN.3087; FSA a.6 04.GN.3088; FSA a.6 04.GN.3089; FSA a.6 04.GN.3090; FSA a.6 04.GN.3091; FSA a.6 04.GN.3092; FSA a.6 04.GN.3093; FSA a.6 04.GN.3094; FSA a.6 04.GN.3095; FSA a.6 04.GN.3429; FSA a.6 04.GN.3430; FSA a.6 04.GN.3431; FSA a.6 04.GN.3432; FSA a.6 04.GN.3433; FSA a.6 04.GN.3434; FSA a.6 04.GN.3342; FSA a.6 04.GN.3247; FSA a.6 04.GN.3770; FSA a.6 04.GN.3574; FSA a.6 04.GN.3568; FSA a.6 04.GN.3576; FSA a.6 04.GN.3577; FSA a.6 04.GN.3575; FSA a.6 04.GN.3569; FSA a.6 04.GN.3570; FSA a.6 04.GN.3571; FSA a.6 04.GN.3240; FSA a.6 04.GN.3595; FSA a.6 04.GN.3522; FSA a.6 04.GN.3610; FSA a.6 04.GN.3597; FSA a.6 04.GN.3572; FSA a.6 04.GN.3573; FSA a.6 04.GN.3655; FSA a.6 04.GN.3695; FSA a.6 04.GN.3584; FSA a.6 04.GN.3758; FSA a.6 04.GN.3246; FSA a.6 04.GN.3761."
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, 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 14 additional files in excess of the 21 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.
