FW-ASCH-7RR-2810 is one of the series of at least six tapes of interviews of Kiowa Indians recorded by Harry Smith (See above).

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 16", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 313 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings as well as Arabic inscriptions at Baalbek (Lebanon), Hims (Syria) and Damascus (Syria).
- 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 The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Syrian Architecture (Cyanotypes File 16)
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were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished.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.

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 16, Volume 1", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 156 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings, as well as Arabic and Greek inscriptions from Baalbek (Lebanon), Hims (Syria) and Damascus (Syria).
- 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 16, Volume 1" is composed of 156 photographic prints, made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.3929; FSA a.6 04.GN.3930; FSA a.6 04.GN.3931; FSA a.6 04.GN.3832; FSA a.6 04.GN.3933; FSA a.6 04.GN.3934; FSA a.6 04.GN.3935; FSA a.6 04.GN.3936; FSA a.6 04.GN.3937; FSA a.6 04.GN.3939; FSA a.6 04.GN.3067; FSA a.6 04.GN.3726; FSA a.6 04.GN.3301; FSA a.6 04.GN.3798; FSA a.6 04.GN.3719; FSA a.6 04.GN.3718; FSA a.6 04.GN.3302; FSA a.6 04.GN.3303; FSA a.6 04.GN.3813; FSA a.6 04.GN.3072; FSA a.6 04.GN.3811; FSA a.6 04.GN.3812; FSA a.6 04.GN.3252; FSA a.6 04.GN.3262; FSA a.6 04.GN.3801; FSA a.6 04.GN.3801a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3343; FSA a.6 04.GN.3335; FSA a.6 04.GN.3802; FSA a.6 04.GN.3310; FSA a.6 04.GN.3253; FSA a.6 04.GN.3255; FSA a.6 04.GN.3254; FSA a.6 04.GN.3260; FSA a.6 04.GN.3308; FSA a.6 04.GN.3307; FSA a.6 04.GN.3797; FSA a.6 04.GN.3722; FSA a.6 04.GN.3724; FSA a.6 04.GN.3723; FSA a.6 04.GN.3815; FSA a.6 04..GN.3725; FSA a.6 04.GN.3309; FSA a.6 04.GN.3070; FSA a.6 04.GN.3073; FSA a.6 04.GN.3071; FSA a.6 04.GN.3077; FSA a.6 04.GN.3069; FSA a.6 04.GN.3796; FSA a.6 04.GN.3796a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3305; FSA a.6 04.GN.3306; FSA a.6 04.GN.3076; FSA a.6 04.GN.3058; FSA a.6 04.GN.3311; FSA a.6 04.GN.3304; FSA a.6 04.GN.3074; FSA a.6 04.GN.3075; FSA a.6 04.GN.3795; FSA a.6 04.GN.3814; FSA a.6 04.GN.3799; FSA a.6 04.GN.3800; FSA a.6 04.GN.3338; FSA a.6 04.GN.3339; FSA a.6 04.GN.3329; FSA a.6 04.GN.3333; FSA a.6 04.GN.3345; FSA a.6 04.GN.3341; FSA a.6 04.GN.3344; FSA a.6 04.GN.3435; FSA a.6 04.GN.3436; FSA a.6 04.GN.3327; FSA a.6 04.GN.3678; FSA a.6 04.GN.3671; FSA a.6 04.GN.3673; FSA a.6 04.GN.3675; FSA a.6 04.GN.3676; FSA a.6 04.GN.3677; FSA a.6 04.GN.3672; FSA a.6 04.GN.3668; FSA a.6 04.GN.3101; FSA a.6 04.GN.3102; FSA a.6 04.GN.3097; FSA a.6 04.GN.3099; FSA a.6 04.GN.3667; FSA a.6 04.GN.3670; FSA a.6 04.GN.3674; FSA a.6 04.GN.3665; FSA a.6 04.GN.3669; FSA a.6 04.GN.3119; FSA a.6 04.GN.3126; FSA a.6 04.GN.3438; FSA a.6 04.GN.3443; FSA a.6 04.GN.3125; FSA a.6 04.GN.3121; FSA a.6 04.GN.3130; FSA a.6 04.GN.3124; FSA a.6 04.GN.3447; FSA a.6 04.GN.3439; FSA a.6 04.GN.2847; FSA a.6 04.GN.3437; FSA a.6 04.GN.2849; FSA a.6 04.GN.3127; FSA a.6 04.GN.3123; FSA a.6 04.GN.3120; FSA a.6 04.GN.3442; FSA a.6 04.GN.3441; FSA a.6 04.GN.3096; FSA a.6 04.GN.3098; FSA a.6 04.GN.3100; FSA a.6 04.GN.3500; FSA a.6 04.GN.3426; FSA a.6 04.GN.3448; FSA a.6 04.GN.3449; FSA a.6 04.GN.3446; FSA a.6 04.GN.3129; FSA a.6 04.GN.3501; FSA a.6 04.GN.3502; FSA a.6 04.GN.3503; FSA a.6 04.GN.3131; FSA a.6 04.GN.3444; FSA a.6 04.GN.3440; FSA a.6 04.GN.3122; FSA a.6 04.GN.3445; FSA a.6 04.GN.3450; FSA a.6 04.GN.2825; FSA a.6 04.GN.3931; FSA a.6 04.GN.3832; FSA a.6 04.GN.2834; FSA a.6 04.GN.3830; FSA a.6 04.GN.2855; FSA a.6 04..GN.2857; FSA a.6 04.GN.2849; FSA a.6 04.GN.2850; FSA a.6 04.GN.2851; FSA a.6 04.GN.2856; FSA a.6 04.GN.2816; FSA a.6 04.GN.2854; FSA a.6 04.GN.2806; FSA a.6 04.GN.2830; FSA a.6 04.GN.3633; FSA a.6 04.GN.2807; FSA a.6 04.GN.2835; FSA a.6 04.GN.2852; FSA a.6 04.GN.2810; FSA a.6 04.GN.2828; FSA a.6 04.GN.2751; FSA a.6 04.GN.2756; FSA a.6 04.GN.2760; FSA a.6 04.GN.2755; FSA a.6 04.GN.2753; FSA a.6 04.GN.2758; FSA a.6 04.GN.2837; FSA a.6 04.GN.2836; FSA a.6 04.GN.2841; FSA a.6 04.GN.2846; FSA a.6 04.GN.2844; FSA a.6 04.GN.2838."

Scope and Contents:
- The third of a series of four inventory books, in which Ernst Herzfeld recorded archaeological remains, prehistoric artifacts and antiquities collected or acquired in several cities throughout Persia in 1923 and 1924, as well as 1926 and 1927, 1929, and finally 1932 and 1933.
- Additional information from staff reads: "Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 2,032 to 2,884, a place of provenance and/or acquisition; dates; dimensions; sketches; another set of inventory numbers accordant to a specific location; references to museum institutions; physical descriptions; a dinasty and reign attribution; Krans currency prices; and cross-references to additional materials (glass negatives, sketchbooks) within the Ernst Herzfeld Papers."
- Additional information from staff reads: "The list of inventory numbers in ledger N-91 reveals a lack of continuity through duplication and missing numbers. In terms of duplication, inventory numbers 2032, 2648, 2671 to 2690, and 2788 have all double entries; in terms of missing numbers, inventory numbers 2136 to 2199 and inventory number 2788 are all absent. Furthermore, inventory number 2648 occupies a full ledger page with 12 separate entries."
- "The content of ledger N-91 may tentatively be summarized into six subdivisions: 1) inventory numbers 2032 to 2135, are a continuation of ledger N-89, and appear to be following a long series of entries entered in that ledger. The series starts with inventory number 1859 under which an handwritten note reads: "Shiraz. Jan. [19]24"; 2) inventory numbers 2200 to 2255 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tehran and Hamadan during the months of May and June 1926. The series starts with inventory number 2200 under which an handwritten note reads: "Teheran. Mai. [19]26"; 3) inventory numbers 2256 to 2502 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tepe Giyan during Autumn 1926 to Spring 1927. The series starts with inventory number 2260 under which an handwritten note reads: "Tepe Qiyān. Herbst 1926 - Frühling 1927. (Teheran)"; 4) inventory numbers 2503 to 2808 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tepe Giyan (mostly), Sawa, and Ray, at the end of Spring 1927. The series starts with inventory number 2503 under which an handwritten note reads: "Tepe Qiyān. 3 mai [19]27. Yahyā"; 5) inventory numbers 2809 to 2842 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in modern Hamadan and Kermanshah from late October 1929 to early December 1929. The series starts with inventory number 2810 under which an handwritten note reads: "Agbatana, 30 Oct. [19]29; 6) inventory numbers 2843 to 2884 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tepe Giyan, Baghdad, Sultanabad, Cairo, Isfahan, and Tehran in Autumn 1932 and Summer 1933. Inventory number 2855, for example, has an handwritten note which reads: "Isfahan, end Juli [19]33." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Archives cataloger]
- Additional information related to ledger N-91 reads."Two series of handwitten notes on small sheet of papers were found within ledger N-91: 1) within the page starting with inventory number 2357, one small page including list of antiquities and associated prices; 2) within the page starting with inventory number 2810, seven small pages including list of antiquities and associated prices." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Archives cataloger]
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-91 reads, "Inventory of Herzfeld's Collection. Continuation of N-89, Nos. 2032-2884 (No.2032 is used twice, once for another coin in N-89). No prices are entered after 2535. Nos.2261-2511 are headed "Tepe Giyān, Fall 1926-Spring 1927." There are frequent references to photos or sketchbook entries and many of the objects are noted as in the Field Museum, Chicago."
Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks; Inventory of Objects in Herzfeld Collection (Continuation of N-89)
Arrangement:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Ledgers 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 ledger an accession number, N-91, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

FSA A.06 03.091
General:
- Title is provided by Xavier Courouble,FSg Archives cataloger, based on Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive.
Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
"The first four pages of ledger N-91, including inventory numbers 2032 to 2135, are a continuation of ledger N-89, which appears to be covering a period of field activities carried on by Ernst Herzfeld in 1923 and 1924. However, inventory number 2267 displays an handwritten note in English which reads, "lost in Princeton." From 1936 to 1944, Herzfeld was a member of the School of Humanistic Studies, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey. Finally, three sets of additional dates have been identified in ledger N-91: Autumn 1926 - Spring 1927, entered in inventory number 2261; October-November-December 1929, in inventory numbers 2810/2811/2822; 1932-1933, in inventory numbers 2843/2855/2867."
