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.

Scope and Contents:
Additional information reads, "During the relatively short period of work at Manqūr / Balkuwārā in the summer and early fall of 1911, Herzfeld's efforts focused mainly on the central reception block between the third courtyard and the so-called river garden above the Tigris, especially on the eastern Īwān and some adjacent easterly rooms. He surveyed the rest of the reception block of the palace, including the cruciform domed hall in the center as well as the courtyard houses and ancillary complexes with the two maidāns to the south and north and added their general outlines, as far as they were visible among the ruins, to the plan. Herzfeld was certainly interested in the main architectonic features of the palace, but at the same time had hoped to uncover new varieties of stucco wall ornaments and to make major ceramic finds. In both he was disappointed. This probably contributed to his decision to stop the work on the site at the end of September 1911." [Leisten, Thomas, 2003: "Excavation of Samarra, v. I. Architecture : Final report of the first campaign 1910-1912. Verlag Philipp von Zabern, Mainz am Rhein, 2003. p.91."]
