Arrangement:
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-125, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

General:
- Title is provided by Xavier Courouble, FSg Archives cataloger, based on Herzfeld's original sketchbook title and Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive.
Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
"Herzfeld's long acquaintance with the ruins, the many years that he had apparently spent contemplating their significance, and, not least, his little-advertised preliminary campaign at Pasargadae in mid-November 1923, did much to allow him to provide a succinct but seemingly comprehensive view of a site where his formal excavations only occupied twenty-eight days in April and May 1928." [David Stronach, "Ernst Herzfeld and Pasargadae", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005. P.109]
Funding note:
"The excavations at Pasargadae in 1928 and at Kuh-i Khwaja in 1929 were only possible because of the funds Herzfeld received from the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft. He was able to excavate at these sites thanks to the network of Friedrich Sarre at the Berlin State Museum, Eduard Meyer at the University of Berlin, Gerhart Rodenwaldt at the German Archaeological Institute, Friedrich Schmidt-Ott, president of the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, and the Islamic scholar Carl Heinrich Becker, who was Prussian minister of culture from 1925 to 1930." [Jens Kröger, "Ernst Herzfeld and Friedrich Sarre", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005. P.76]

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
"The field activities of the Persepolis Expedition were initiated by Professor Ernst Herzfeld in Spring 1931, after the French archaeological monopoly had been replaced by the new Antiquity Law, which opened Iran to archaeological field work by other nations. The expedition ended in fall 1939, after the outbreak of World War II. [...] At the end of 1934, Herzfeld was removed from his position as expedition director. He left Persepolis for the last time toward the end of November 1934 and went to London." [Elspeth R. M. Dusinberre, "Herzfeld in Persepolis", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005. P.137 and P.161]
Funding note:
"Herzfeld returned to Persepolis in 1931 as field director. The project was conducted under the auspices of the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago, with additional financial assistance from other American individuals and institutions." [Elspeth R. M. Dusinberre, "Herzfeld in Persepolis", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005. P.146]

"Ernst Herzfeld's years in Iran [Persia] from [February] 1923 to [the end of October] 1925 were made possible by a private company with limited liability called the Gesellschaft zur Förderung von Ausgrabungen und Forschungsreisen GmbH, which was founded in 1923. Its aim was to foster excavations and scientific expeditions in Asia and to publish the results. [...]. [Consequently] Herzfeld was able to travel freely in Iran and survey most major archaeological sites, including Pasargadae, Persepolis, and Kuh-e Khwaja, and develop for future excavations." [Jens Kröger, "Ernst Herzfeld and Friedrich Sarre", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005.

"Ernst Herzfeld's years in Iran [Persia] from [February] 1923 to [the end of October] 1925 were made possible by a private company with limited liability called the Gesellschaft zur Förderung von Ausgrabungen und Forschungsreisen GmbH, which was founded in 1923. Its aim was to foster excavations and scientific expeditions in Asia and to publish the results. [...]. [Consequently] Herzfeld was able to travel freely in Iran and survey most major archaeological sites, including Pasargadae, Persepolis, and Kuh-e Khwaja, and develop for future excavations."

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
"Herzfeld's long acquaintance with the ruins, the many years that he had apparently spent contemplating their significance, and, not least, his little-advertised preliminary campaign at Pasargadae in mid-November 1923, did much to allow him to provide a succinct but seemingly comprehensive view of a site where his formal excavations only occupied twenty-eight days in April and May 1928." [David Stronach, "Ernst Herzfeld and Pasargadae", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005. P.109]
Funding note:
"The excavations at Pasargadae in 1928 and at Kuh-i Khwaja in 1929 were only possible because of the funds Herzfeld received from the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft. He was able to excavate at these sites thanks to the network of Friedrich Sarre at the Berlin State Museum, Eduard Meyer at the University of Berlin, Gerhart Rodenwaldt at the German Archaeological Institute, Friedrich Schmidt-Ott, president of the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, and the Islamic scholar Carl Heinrich Becker, who was Prussian minister of culture from 1925 to 1930."

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
"Herzfeld's long acquaintance with the ruins, the many years that he had apparently spent contemplating their significance, and, not least, his little-advertised preliminary campaign at Pasargadae in mid-November 1923, did much to allow him to provide a succinct but seemingly comprehensive view of a site where his formal excavations only occupied twenty-eight days in April and May 1928." [David Stronach, "Ernst Herzfeld and Pasargadae", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005. P.109]
Funding note:
"The excavations at Pasargadae in 1928 and at Kuh-i Khwaja in 1929 were only possible because of the funds Herzfeld received from the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft. He was able to excavate at these sites thanks to the network of Friedrich Sarre at the Berlin State Museum, Eduard Meyer at the University of Berlin, Gerhart Rodenwaldt at the German Archaeological Institute, Friedrich Schmidt-Ott, president of the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, and the Islamic scholar Carl Heinrich Becker, who was Prussian minister of culture from 1925 to 1930." [Jens Kröger, "Ernst Herzfeld and Friedrich Sarre", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005. P.76]

Scope and Contents:
- The fourth of a series of four inventory books, which displays two separate inventories of objects. The first list describes archaeological remains, prehistoric artifacts and antiquities which were collected during a session of excavations at Pasargadae in April and May 1928, carried out by Ernst Herzfeld, assisted by the architect Friedrich Krefter. The second list, without dates, enumerates prehistoric artifacts and antiquities collected, acquired, or observed in Baghdad, Hamadan, Harsin, Kermanshah, Nihavand, Tehran, and possibly Ur.
- Additional information from staff reads: "For the Pasargadae finds journal, Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 1 to 34, the excavated building or site; dates; sketches; physical descriptions; and cross-references to additional materials (glass negatives, sketchbooks, and paper squeezes) within the Ernst Herzfeld Papers."
- Additional information from staff reads: "For the prehistoric objects, Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 1 to 60 (in addition of 19 objects un-numbered), a place of provenance and/or acquisition; sketches; and physical descriptions."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-92 reads, "Inventory. Nos. 1-34 headed "1928. Pasargadae"; Nos. 1-79 which follow in another series are from Nihavand, Harsin, Baghdad, etc.."
Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks; Finds Journal from the Excavation of Pasargadae in 1928 and Random Inventory of Prehistoric Objects (N-92)
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-92, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

"Ernst Herzfeld's years in Iran [Persia] from [February] 1923 to [the end of October] 1925 were made possible by a private company with limited liability called the Gesellschaft zur Förderung von Ausgrabungen und Forschungsreisen GmbH, which was founded in 1923. Its aim was to foster excavations and scientific expeditions in Asia and to publish the results. [...]. [Consequently] Herzfeld was able to travel freely in Iran and survey most major archaeological sites, including Pasargadae, Persepolis, and Kuh-e Khwaja, and develop for future excavations."

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
"Ernst Herzfeld's years in Iran [Persia] from [February] 1923 to [the end of October] 1925 were made possible by a private company with limited liability called the Gesellschaft zur Förderung von Ausgrabungen und Forschungsreisen GmbH, which was founded in 1923. Its aim was to foster excavations and scientific expeditions in Asia and to publish the results. [...]. [Consequently] Herzfeld was able to travel freely in Iran and survey most major archaeological sites, including Pasargadae, Persepolis, and Kuh-e Khwaja, and develop for future excavations." [Jens Kröger, "Ernst Herzfeld and Friedrich Sarre", Ernst Herzfeld and the Development of Near Eastern Studies, 1900-1950. Edited by Ann Gunter and Stefan R. Hauser. Leiden: Brill, 2005.
