- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 11", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 338 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings and archaeological remains at Baghdad (Iraq), Kufa (Iraq), Hamadan (Iran), Sunghur (Iran), Asadabad (Iran), Alamut (Iran), Rayy (Iran), Tehran (Iran), Varamin (Iran), Qum (Iran), Qara Tepe (Iran), Isfahan (Iran), Linjan District (Iran), Pasargadae (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Band-i Amir (Iran), Firuzabad (Iran), Shiraz (Iran), Island of Kharg (Iran), Na'in (Iran), Kerman (Iran), Sistan (Iran), and Zahedan (Iran).
- 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 The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16.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.1196; FSA a.6 04.GN.2707; FSA a.6 04.GN.2702; FSA a.6 04.GN.2701;

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Persian Architecture (Cyanotypes File 11)
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were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished.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.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Persian Architecture and Landscapes (Photo File 11, vol. 2)
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 14, Volume 1", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 168 photographic prints which relate to field study of various archaeological sites and architectural buildings, as well as Arabic inscriptions from Ma'arat al-Nu'man (Syria), Sarmin (Syria), Hama (Syria), Hisn Akkar and Hisn al-Akrad (Syria), Der'a (Syria), Marathus (Extinct city), Jerusalem, Cairo (Egypt), Amman (Jordan), Petra (Jordan), and Baalbeck (Lebanon).
- 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."

Scope and Contents note:
The prints from number 45-1 through 77 are from unmarked films. Most were probably taken by Herzfeld 1908--914 or 1914--0, during the periods when he and Sobernheim, or he alone, were recording inscriptions on and near Aleppo. Herzfeld traveled also in Palestine and other places in Syria. Unless the prints are labelled, the locations are uncertain, though probably in Palestine or Syria.
Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 14, Volume 2", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 32 photographic prints which relate to field study of various archaeological sites and architectural buildings, as well as antiquities and Arabic inscriptions from Ma'arat al-Nu'man (Syria), Damascus (Syria), Hama (Syria), Raqqa (Syria), Hisn Akkar (Syria), Hims (Syria), Aleppo (Syria), Palmyra (Syria), Latakié (Syria), Jerusalem and Palestine, Constantinople (Turkey), Petra (Jordan), and Baalbeck (Lebanon).
- 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; Syria: Architecture and Inscriptions (Photo File 14, vol. 2)
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.

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 15", 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 Aleppo (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."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Aleppo (Syria) (Cyanotypes File 15)
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 15, Volume 1", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 189 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings, as well as Arabic inscriptions from Aleppo (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 15, Volume 1" is composed of 189 photographic prints, made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.3808; FSA a.6 04.GN.3804; FSA a.6 04.GN.3804a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3382; FSA a.6 04.GN.3059; FSA a.6 04.GN.3054; FSA a.6 04.GN.3052; FSA a.6 04.GN.3055; FSA a.6 04.GN.3349; FSA a.6 04.GN.3347; FSA a.6 04.GN.3354; FSA a.6 04.GN.3355; FSA a.6 04.GN.3053; FSA a.6 04.GN.3065; FSA a.6 04.GN.2765; FSA a.6 04.GN.3385; FSA a.6 04.GN.3056; FSA a.6 04.GN.3379; FSA a.6 04.GN.3384; FSA a.6 04.GN.3387; FSA a.6 04.GN.3387a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3388; FSA a.6 04.GN.2770; FSA a.6 04.GN.2768; FSA a.6 04.GN.3386; FSA a.6 04.GN.3066; FSA a.6 04.GN.2775; FSA a.6 04.GN.3497; FSA a.6 04.GN.3063; FSA a.6 04.GN.3062; FSA a.6 04.GN.3377; FSA a.6 04.GN.3317; FSA a.6 04.GN.3068; FSA a.6 04.GN.3060; FSA a.6 04.GN.3380; FSA a.6 04.GN.3061a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3061b; FSA a.6 04.GN.3383; FSA a.6 04.GN.3381; FSA a.6 04.GN.3746; FSA a.6 04.GN.3749; FSA a.6 04.GN.3320; FSA a.6 04.GN.3318; FSA a.6 04.GN.3752; FSA a.6 04.GN.3316; FSA a.6 04.GN.3319; FSA a.6 04.GN.3378; FSA a.6 04.GN.3315; FSA a.6 04.GN.3751; FSA a.6 04.GN.3266; FSA a.6 04.GN.3348; FSA a.6 04.GN.3352; FSA a.6 04.GN.3739; FSA a.6 04.GN.3742; FSA a.6 04.GN.3679; FSA a.6 04.GN.3312; FSA a.6 04.GN.3275; FSA a.6 04.GN.3264; FSA a.6 04.GN.3290; FSA a.6 04.GN.3686; FSA a.6 04.GN.3274; FSA a.6 04.GN.3273; FSA a.6 04.GN.3268; FSA a.6 04.GN.3270; FSA a.6 04.GN.3269; FSA a.6 04.GN.3272; FSA a.6 04.GN.3265; FSA a.6 04.GN.2729; FSA a.6 04.GN.3276; FSA a.6 04.GN.3277; FSA a.6 04.GN.3267; FSA a.6 04.GN.3299; FSA a.6 04.GN.3300; FSA a.6 04.GN.3271; FSA a.6 04.GN.3747; FSA a.6 04.GN.3748; FSA a.6 04.GN.3103; FSA a.6 04.GN.3741; FSA a.6 04.GN.3740; FSA a.6 04.GN.3313; FSA a.6 04.GN.3744; FSA a.6 04.GN.3681; FSA a.6 04.GN.3750; FSA a.6 04.GN.3743; FSA a.6 04.GN.3294; FSA a.6 04.GN.3685; FSA a.6 04.GN.3684; FSA a.6 04.GN.3293; FSA a.6 04.GN.3295; FSA a.6 04.GN.3687; FSA a.6 04.GN.3745; FSA a.6 04.GN.3291; FSA a.6 04.GN.3682; FSA a.6 04.GN.3683; FSA a.6 04.GN.3292; FSA a.6 04.GN.3297; FSA a.6 04.GN.3680; FSA a.6 04.GN.3298; FSA a.6 04.GN.3314; FSA a.6 04.GN.3322; FSA a.6 04.GN.3324; FSA a.6 04.GN.3321; FSA a.6 04.GN.3335; FSA a.6 04.GN.3323; FSA a.6 04.GN.3628; FSA a.6 04.GN.3296; FSA a.6 04.GN.3624; FSA a.6 04.GN.3688; FSA a.6 04.GN.3616; FSA a.6 04.GN.3618; FSA a.6 04.GN.3617; FSA a.6 04.GN.3222; FSA a.6 04.GN.3221; FSA a.6 04.GN.3224; FSA a.6 04.GN.3615; FSA a.6 04.GN.3619; FSA a.6 04.GN.3620; FSA a.6 04.GN.3621; FSA a.6 04.GN.3223; FSA a.6 04.GN.3217; FSA a.6 04.GN.3218; FSA a.6 04.GN.3219; FSA a.6 04.GN.3220; FSA a.6 04.GN.3689; FSA a.6 04.GN.3626; FSA a.6 04.GN.3625; FSA a.6 04.GN.3629; FSA a.6 04.GN.3627; FSA a.6 04.GN.3622; FSA a.6 04.GN.3623; FSA a.6 04.GN.3733; FSA a.6 04.GN.3158; FSA a.6 04.GN.3350; FSA a.6 04.GN.3356; FSA a.6 04.GN.3147; FSA a.6 04.GN.3145; FSA a.6 04.GN.3146; FSA a.6 04.GN.3148; FSA a.6 04.GN.3143; FSA a.6 04.GN.3144; FSA a.6 04.GN.3144a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3360; FSA a.6 04.GN.3351; FSA a.6 04.GN.3488; FSA a.6 04.GN.3489; FSA a.6 04.GN.3737; FSA a.6 04.GN.3560; FSA a.6 04.GN.3562; FSA a.6 04.GN.3734; FSA a.6 04.GN.3734a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3561; FSA a.6 04.GN.3563; FSA a.6 04.GN.3485; FSA a.6 04.GN.3359; FSA a.6 04.GN.3495; FSA a.6 04.GN.3496; FSA a.6 04.GN.3358; FSA a.6 04.GN.3353; FSA a.6 04.GN.3494; FSA a.6 04.GN.3492; FSA a.6 04.GN.3630; FSA a.6 04.GN.3141; FSA a.6 04.GN.3493; FSA a.6 04.GN.3140; FSA a.6 04.GN.3139; FSA a.6 04.GN.3738; FSA a.6 04.GN.3728; FSA a.6 04.GN.3337; FSA a.6 04.GN.3330; FSA a.6 04.GN.3250; FSA a.6 04.GN.3357; FSA a.6 04.GN.3361; FSA a.6 04.GN.3735; FSA a.6 04.GN.3559; FSA a.6 04.GN.3645; FSA a.6 04.GN.3729; FSA a.6 04.GN.3730; FSA a.6 04.GN.3731; FSA a.6 04.GN.3727; FSA a.6 04.GN.3134; FSA a.6 04.GN.3362; FSA a.6 04.GN.3486; FSA a.6 04.GN.3248; FSA a.6 04.GN.3613; FSA a.6 04.GN.2771; FSA a.6 04.GN.2774; FSA a.6 04.GN.2766; FSA a.6 04.GN.3150; FSA a.6 04.GN.3149; FSA a.6 04.GN.3153; FSA a.6 04.GN.3154; FSA a.6 04.GN.3157; FSA a.6 04.GN.3156; FSA a.6 04.GN.3151; FSA a.6 04.GN.3152."

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 15, Volume 2", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 162 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings, as well as Arabic inscriptions from Aleppo (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 15, Volume 2" is composed of 124 photographic prints, made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.3155; FSA a.6 04.GN.3132; FSA a.6 04.GN.3166; FSA a.6 04.GN.3160; FSA a.6 04.GN.3167; FSA a.6 04.GN.3163; FSA a.6 04.GN.3168; FSA a.6 04.GN.3159; FSA a.6 04.GN.3346; FSA a.6 04.GN.3363; FSA a.6 04.GN.3644; FSA a.6 04.GN.3138; FSA a.6 04.GN.3136; FSA a.6 04.GN.3504; FSA a.6 04.GN.3505; FSA a.6 04.GN.3508; FSA a.6 04.GN.3509; FSA a.6 04.GN.3510; FSA a.6 04.GN.3506; FSA a.6 04.GN.3507; FSA a.6 04.GN.3249; FSA a.6 04.GN.3169; FSA a.6 04.GN.3172; FSA a.6 04.GN.3170; FSA a.6 04.GN.3133; FSA a.6 04.GN.3137; FSA a.6 04.GN.3135; FSA a.6 04.GN.3364; FSA a.6 04.GN.3142; FSA a.6 04.GN.3490; FSA a.6 04.GN.3491; FSA a.6 04.GN.3334; FSA a.6 04.GN.3460; FSA a.6 04.GN.3460a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3328; FSA a.6 04.GN.3458; FSA a.6 04.GN.3165; FSA a.6 04.GN.3161; FSA a.6 04.GN.2763; FSA a.6 04.GN.3173; FSA a.6 04.GN.3174; FSA a.6 04.GN.3171; FSA a.6 04.GN.3487; FSA a.6 04.GN.3614; FSA a.6 04.GN.3705; FSA a.6 04.GN.3708; FSA a.6 04.GN.3476; FSA a.6 04.GN.3807; FSA a.6 04.GN.3806; FSA a.6 04.GN.3715; FSA a.6 04.GN.3712; FSA a.6 04.GN.3711; FSA a.6 04.GN.3714; FSA a.6 04.GN.3713; FSA a.6 04.GN.3390; FSA a.6 04.GN.3389; FSA a.6 04.GN.3473; FSA a.6 04.GN.3473a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3709; FSA a.6 04.GN.3706; FSA a.6 04.GN.3516; FSA a.6 04.GN.3553; FSA a.6 04.GN.3513; FSA a.6 04.GN.3478; FSA a.6 04.GN.3477; FSA a.6 04.GN.3514; FSA a.6 04.GN.3481; FSA a.6 04.GN.3805; FSA a.6 04.GN.3717; FSA a.6 04.GN.3229; FSA a.6 04.GN.3716; FSA a.6 04.GN.3232; FSA a.6 04.GN.3225; FSA a.6 04.GN.3231; FSA a.6 04.GN.3554; FSA a.6 04.GN.3226; FSA a.6 04.GN.3227; FSA a.6 04.GN.3521; FSA a.6 04.GN.3515; FSA a.6 04.GN.3228; FSA a.6 04.GN.3732; FSA a.6 04.GN.3567; FSA a.6 04.GN.3565; FSA a.6 04.GN.3566; FSA a.6 04.GN.3566a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3557; FSA a.6 04.GN.3558; FSA a.6 04.GN.3164; FSA a.6 04.GN.3736; FSA a.6 04.GN.3564; FSA a.6 04.GN.3470; FSA a.6 04.GN.3470a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3474; FSA a.6 04.GN.3469; FSA a.6 04.GN.3710; FSA a.6 04.GN.3511; FSA a.6 04.GN.3475; FSA a.6 04.GN.3475a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3480; FSA a.6 04.GN.3471; FSA a.6 04.GN.3472; FSA a.6 04.GN.3555; FSA a.6 04.GN.3482; FSA a.6 04.GN.3520; FSA a.6 04.GN.3479; FSA a.6 04.GN.3230; FSA a.6 04.GN.3326; FSA a.6 04.GN.3810; FSA a.6 04.GN.3057; FSA a.6 04.GN.3484; FSA a.6 04.GN.3556; FSA a.6 04.GN.3707; FSA a.6 04.GN.3064; FSA a.6 04.GN.3803; FSA a.6 04.GN.3517; FSA a.6 04.GN.3518; FSA a.6 04.GN.3519; FSA a.6 04.GN.3483; FSA a.6 04.GN.3809; FSA a.6 04.GN.3461; FSA a.6 04.GN.3462; FSA a.6 04.GN.3463; FSA a.6 04.GN.3464; FSA a.6 04.GN.3465; FSA a.6 04.GN.3465a; FSA a.6 04.GN.3466; FSA a.6 04.GN.; FSA a.6 04.GN.3467; FSA a.6 04.GN.3468; FSA a.6 04.GN.3459; FSA a.6 04.GN.3512."
- At the end of "Photo File 15, Volume 2," Joseph Upton has added 38 photographic prints.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Aleppo (Syria) (Photo File 15, vol. 2)
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.

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."

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.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Pre-Achaemenid Monuments and Pasargadae (Photo File 28)
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 five albums including Photo Files, Nos. 22, 23, 25, 27, and 28. 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. Photo file 28 follows an album prepared by Herzfeld in which he had arranged prints in a sequence for study or publication. The order in the photo file retains that in the album.
