Biographical / Historical:
The Ernst Herzfeld Papers document the career of Ernst Herzfeld (1879--1948), a German architect, archaeologist, and historian of Islamic and Pre-Islamic studies. After training as an architect he studied archaeology under Delitzch from 1903 to 1906 at the excavations at Assur in Mesopotamia. A student of Latin, Greek, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Hebrew, Herzfeld received a doctorate in Humanistic Studies at universities in Munich and Berlin in 1907. His work with Friedrich Sarre to survey the monuments of the Tigris-Euphrates valleys resulted in landmark studies in architectural history, published in 1911 and 1920.

In 1920 Herzfeld was appointed to the chair of Historical Geography in Berlin and began his excavation at Samarra. Herzfeld's work there led to a six-volume publication. He published widely throughout his life on the sources of Islamic architecture and ornament, including the Royal Palace at Persepolis.

From 1934 until the end of his life Herzfeld spent his time producing many books and articles, lecturing, and working at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton (1936--1945.) Many of his works continue to be published post-humously.

Descriptive Entry:
These records are the official minutes of the Board. They are compiled at the direction of the Secretary of the Smithsonian, who is also secretary to the Board, after approval by the Regents' Executive Committee and by the Regents themselves. The minutes are edited, not a verbatim account of proceedings. For reasons unknown, there are no manuscript minutes for the period from 1857 through 1890; and researchers must rely on printed minutes published in the Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution instead. Minutes are transferred regularly from the Secretary's Office to the Archives. Minutes less than 15 years old are closed to researchers. Indexes exist for the period from 1907 to 1946 and can be useful.
Historical Note:
The Smithsonian Institution was created by authority of an Act of Congress approved August 10, 1846. The Act entrusted direction of the Smithsonian to a body called the Establishment, composed of the President; the Vice President; the Chief Justice of the United States; the secretaries of State, War, Navy, Interior, and Agriculture; the Attorney General; and the Postmaster General. In fact, however, the Establishment last met in 1877, and control of the Smithsonian has always been exercised by its Board of Regents. The membership of the Regents consists of the Vice President and the Chief Justice of the United States; three members each of the Senate and House of Representatives; two citizens of the District of Columbia; and seven citizens of the several states, no two from the same state. (Prior to 1970 the category of Citizen Regents not residents of Washington consisted of four members). By custom the Chief Justice is Chancellor. The office was at first held by the Vice President. However, when Millard Fillmore succeeded to the presidency on the death of Zachary Taylor in 1851, Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney was chosen in his stead. The office has always been filled by the Chief Justice since that time.

The Regents of the Smithsonian have included distinguished Americans from many walks of life. Ex officio members (Vice President) have been: Spiro T. Agnew, Chester A. Arthur, Allen W.

Historical Note:
The Smithsonian Journal of History was an 8 1/2" x 11" scholarly quarterly specializing in illustrated articles. The Journal had its inception in the 1964 meetings of the Association of Curators. A proposal by Walter F. Cannon won financial support in the sum of $30,500 from the Secretary in December 1964. The first issue published was Spring 1966. Although an additional $40,000 was budgeted for the Journal's operation in January 1967, financial and schedule problems resulted in termination of the Journal after publication of the Winter 1968-1969 issue. Each issue was composed of two sections. Articles were contributed by professional historians and were not limited to any particular subject, area of interest, nation, or time period. The average article ran 10,000 words and included 12 illustrations. The "Notes and Queries" section of each issue carried notes of important research programs, museum acquisitions, and exhibits at the Smithsonian and at other historical museums. This section also printed requests for information about important or unusual objects. Before termination, 12 issues of The Smithsonian Journal of History had been published, winning critical acclaim from the scholarly world.

Although officially the responsibility of the Director of the National Museum of History and Technology, administrative decisions were handled by an Editorial Board. Walter F. Cannon served as Editor for the first five issues until his resignation July 14, 1967. Peter C. Welsh served as Editor for the last seven issues. The Editorial Assistant and later Assistant Editor was Elaine Eden Jancourtz. Roger Pineau served as Editorial Consultant. Other members of the original Editorial Board were Silvio A. Bedini, Jacob Kainen, Philip K. Lundeberg, and Peter C. Welsh. When Peter C. Welsh was named Editor, the Editorial Board was composed of John C. Ewers, Melvin H. Jackson, Philip K. Lundeberg, Richard P. Wunder, Roger Pineau, and Elaine Eden Jancourtz. Ellen Tejera replaced Elaine Eden Jancourtz as Assistant Editor by the publication of the Fall 1967 issue. The Board of Advisors was a group of noted historians who served as advisors on selection of manuscripts and related activities. The initial members were Julian Boyd, Hunter Dupree, Anthony Garvan, Louis Jones, Frederic C. Lane, Samuel Eliot Morison, Edgar P. Richardson, Theodore Ropp, Lynn White, Jr., Walter Muir Whitehill, and Louis B. Wright.
