Ledgers (account books)
Journals (accounts)
Place:
New York, New York
Date:
1887 -1962
Scope and Contents:
The Financial Records consist primarily of journals and ledgers dating between 1887 and 1962. Because they are the most basic and inclusive accounting record of original entry, the Journals covering the years between 1915 and 1959, with the exceptions of 1931-1936 and 1951-1955, appear first and are arranged chronologically. Typical journal entries for a month are petty cash, cash, accounts receivable retail, executive salary, cost of retail sale, rental piano expense, and insurance expense. The new piano inventory entry includes estimated and actual costs of piano models. By 1918 monetary values for the above entries are made under five categories: private ledger, retail ledger, wholesale ledger, notes receivable, and interest. They are then referenced to corresponding page numbers in the private ledgers of the same year. General Ledgers, the principal accounting record of final entry, appear next and are arranged chronologically between the years 1901 and 1913, followed by one volume dated 1960 to 1962. Early general ledger entries included advertising, bills receivable and payable, dealer's sale account, interest, insurance, loan, purchase, postage and stable accounts, ferriage and fare, fuel, and pianos bought.

Until Hugo Sohmer's death in 1913, the general ledger was used strictly for business accounting. Around 1915 the company adopted a hybridized private ledger as the principal accounting record of final entry. This "private ledger" continued to include family business with the company until 1939. However, the name of the accounting tool remained "private ledger" until 1960 when it became simply "ledger." Typical ledger entries for 1960 to 1962 at the end of each month for a year fall under four basic categories: Assets, Liabilities, Costs and Expenses, and Income. Entries under assets include petty cash, cash, investments stocks, machinery and equipment, and various inventories including new pianos, exchanges, stools and benches. Entries under liabilities include accounts payable for New York and factory, debentures, various taxes, notes, and H.J. Sohmer personal. Entries under costs and expenses include cost of retail and wholesale sales, salaries and wages, executive salaries, commission, advertising, and various taxes including social security and real estate. Entries under income include retail and wholesale sales, service, interest, and rental piano incomes.

The private ledgers, including bound ledger sheets for 1895-1911, are arranged chronologically by volumes between 1901-1945, excepting the years 1945-1946. The only purely private ledger covers the years 1901 to 1914; it includes predominantly family member accounts with the company. Salaries for management and accounts in which quarterly issued checks are paid out (perhaps returns on investments) are typical. George Reichmann, retail department head, and Charles Fahr, financial and business manager of the firm, are names on account. Several censuses of manufacturers, dated between 1909 and 1914, were in the private ledger of 1901 to 1914; they have been transferred to series III, the inventory and appraisal records.

As already noted, the Sohmer private ledger became a hybrid of the general and private ledger format around 1915. Early typical entries in private ledgers include petty cash, accounts receivable, bank accounts, personal and drawing accounts, and retail advertising. By 1939 the accounts were set up within four categories: Assets, Liabilities, Costs and Expenses, and Income with entries similar to the 1960 1962 general ledger previously discussed.

- Additional information from staff reads: "Herzfeld has listed these objects by categories including among others pottery, bronze, tablets (Sassanid bullae included), and gold objects. He also has diversely applied to the majority of the objects a sketch; a physical description; and currency prices in Indian Rupee."

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-51, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

- "The content of ledger N-90 may tentatively be summarized into two subdivisions: 1) inventory numbers 1 to 1864, are a duplication of ledger N-89, and appear to be following a long series of entries entered in that ledger with much less handwritten annotations. As well, approximately 35 inventory numbers display different descriptive information from ledger N-89 to ledger N-90; 2) inventory numbers 2885 to 2980, which do not carry any dates, are a continuation of ledger N-91. The series seem to cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Harsin, Saweh, Nahavand and Tepe Giyan, as well as acquiring stamp and cylinder seals in Tehran, Kermanshah, and Baghdad."

- Additional information from staff reads: "Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 2,032 to 2,884, a place of provenance and/or acquisition; dates; dimensions; sketches; another set of inventory numbers accordant to a specific location; references to museum institutions; physical descriptions; a dinasty and reign attribution; Krans currency prices; and cross-references to additional materials (glass negatives, sketchbooks) within the Ernst Herzfeld Papers."
- Additional information from staff reads: "The list of inventory numbers in ledger N-91 reveals a lack of continuity through duplication and missing numbers. In terms of duplication, inventory numbers 2032, 2648, 2671 to 2690, and 2788 have all double entries; in terms of missing numbers, inventory numbers 2136 to 2199 and inventory number 2788 are all absent. Furthermore, inventory number 2648 occupies a full ledger page with 12 separate entries."
- "The content of ledger N-91 may tentatively be summarized into six subdivisions: 1) inventory numbers 2032 to 2135, are a continuation of ledger N-89, and appear to be following a long series of entries entered in that ledger. The series starts with inventory number 1859 under which an handwritten note reads: "Shiraz. Jan. [19]24"; 2) inventory numbers 2200 to 2255 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tehran and Hamadan during the months of May and June 1926. The series starts with inventory number 2200 under which an handwritten note reads: "Teheran. Mai. [19]26"; 3) inventory numbers 2256 to 2502 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tepe Giyan during Autumn 1926 to Spring 1927. The series starts with inventory number 2260 under which an handwritten note reads: "Tepe Qiyān. Herbst 1926 - Frühling 1927. (Teheran)"; 4) inventory numbers 2503 to 2808 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tepe Giyan (mostly), Sawa, and Ray, at the end of Spring 1927. The series starts with inventory number 2503 under which an handwritten note reads: "Tepe Qiyān. 3 mai [19]27. Yahyā"; 5) inventory numbers 2809 to 2842 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in modern Hamadan and Kermanshah from late October 1929 to early December 1929. The series starts with inventory number 2810 under which an handwritten note reads: "Agbatana, 30 Oct. [19]29; 6) inventory numbers 2843 to 2884 cover Herzfeld field activities of collecting and acquiring antiquities in Tepe Giyan, Baghdad, Sultanabad, Cairo, Isfahan, and Tehran in Autumn 1932 and Summer 1933. Inventory number 2855, for example, has an handwritten note which reads: "Isfahan, end Juli [19]33." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Archives cataloger]
- Additional information related to ledger N-91 reads."Two series of handwitten notes on small sheet of papers were found within ledger N-91: 1) within the page starting with inventory number 2357, one small page including list of antiquities and associated prices; 2) within the page starting with inventory number 2810, seven small pages including list of antiquities and associated prices." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Archives cataloger]
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-91 reads, "Inventory of Herzfeld's Collection. Continuation of N-89, Nos. 2032-2884 (No.2032 is used twice, once for another coin in N-89). No prices are entered after 2535. Nos.2261-2511 are headed "Tepe Giyān, Fall 1926-Spring 1927." There are frequent references to photos or sketchbook entries and many of the objects are noted as in the Field Museum, Chicago."
Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks; Inventory of Objects in Herzfeld Collection (Continuation of N-89)
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-91, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

"The first four pages of ledger N-91, including inventory numbers 2032 to 2135, are a continuation of ledger N-89, which appears to be covering a period of field activities carried on by Ernst Herzfeld in 1923 and 1924. However, inventory number 2267 displays an handwritten note in English which reads, "lost in Princeton." From 1936 to 1944, Herzfeld was a member of the School of Humanistic Studies, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey. Finally, three sets of additional dates have been identified in ledger N-91: Autumn 1926 - Spring 1927, entered in inventory number 2261; October-November-December 1929, in inventory numbers 2810/2811/2822; 1932-1933, in inventory numbers 2843/2855/2867."

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.

Biographical Note:
Joan Kron (circa 1928-) is a fashion and style journalist in New York City, but began her career in Philadelphia as an advocate of avante-garde artists and co-founder of The Beautiful Bag Co. which worked with artists to produce commercial household and fashion art products. Kron worked on projects with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Indiana, among others.

Joan Kron was born circa 1928 in New York. She studied at the Yale University School of Drama from 1946-1948, graduating with a degree in costume design. She married surgeon Dr. Samuel Kron and lived in Philadelphia during the 1960s. For almost a decade, Kron volunteered as chairman of the Arts Council of the Young Men's/Young Women's Hebrew Association of Philadelphia (YM/YWHA.) The YM/YMA Arts Council focused on promoting and hosting new and avant-garde programs in dance, theatre, poetry, crafts, and the visual arts. Under Kron's leadership, the YM/YWHA Arts Council curated Arts1963/A New Vocabulary (1962) and Museum of Merchandise (1967.)

Kron's work with the Arts Council allowed her to build business partnerships with several artists. She partnered with Andy Warhol to produce a line of perfume, "You're In," packaged in silver Coca-Cola bottles, with Robert Indiana for a Love Ring, and other products and projects associated with the exhibitions of the Arts Council. Then, around 1964, she partnered with colleague Audrey Sabol to form The Beautiful Bag and Box Co. and continued to explore commercial products created or designed by artists, including a line of dinnerware "Durable Dishes" designed by Roy Lichtenstein, a series of billboards displaying art work and the Eat Pin, most likely designed by Robert Indiana.

Kron began her career in journalism in the late 1960s by contributing an article about a cannabis harvest in an upscale neighborhood to the Philadelphia magazine in 1969. She continued to write for the magazine until after her divorce. She moved to New York City in 1971 and was hired by New York magazine. She researched and wrote a special issue about the blossoming SoHo art district. Kron then focused the remainder of her career primarily on writing, and worked for a number of magazines and newspapers, and published several books. As of 2010, she was living in New York City and working as contributing editor at large for Condé Nast's Allure magazine, primarily covering the subject of cosmetic surgery.
