Date:

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.

Place:

Congo (Democratic Republic)
Date:
circa December 1909-January 1912
Scope and Contents:
Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
In 1911, on his first tour of inspection, Judge Gorlia travelled by foot from Lusambo to Dilolo. Until 1912, the Luba, the Songye, the Kanioka, the Lunda and the Chokwe territories extending southward to Dilolo, were administered as part of the Congo-Kasai district with headquarters at Lusambo.
In the savanna country, where hunting is the main activity and settlements are more or less temporary, straw houses are more frequent in the Chokwe villages.
The Chokwe, from childhood onward, are initiated into the execution of sand drawings. These drawings are like ideograms that evoke plants, animals, objrects, places, fables, or legends. The same vernacular term, "sona" (derived from the verb kusona meaning to draw, to paint, to write) designates both the colored drawings on the head-covers of the ritual masks performed by specialists, and the murals that adult men and women execute to adorn the exterior walls of their house.

"Mbuti people go net hunting, not only to provide meat for themselves to eat, but to acquire their main trade item to exchange for Bira commodities and cultivated food. The Mbuti have invested all their energies into satisfying their exchange partners' demands for meat and are now dependant on this system for nearly all their carbohydrate calories in their diet.." [Wilkie, D. S., 1988: Hunters and Farmers of the African Forest. University of California Press, Berkeley]. During his trip to Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Mbuti people at Epulu, South East Ituri Forest region. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for National Geographic Film and traveled to Africa from January 19, 1972 to mid April 1972.
