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:
The material from the excavations at Samarra, except for the photographs mounted in Photo Files 19--3, and drawings which are in Series 5: Drawings.
"Two campaigns of excavation at Samarra in Iraq, carried out by Ernst Herzfeld on behalf of the Kaiser Friedrich Museum in Berlin between the years 1911 and 1913 mark the beginning of large-scale archaeological research on Islamic antiquities. During this time, Herzfeld was supported for brief periods by the swiss architect Samuel Guyer, Commander von Ludloff, various technical assistants, and finally Friedrich Sarre, who was the director of the Islamic department at the museum and initiator of the expedition. For most of the time, however, all tasks that today would be divided among a team of archaeologists rested solely on Herzfeld's shoulders: coordinating hundreds of workmen at various sites, measuring buildings, drawing architecture and objects, and cataloging finds, but also negociating with local authorities who were often uncooperative. Still working at a time when the success of a venture such as the Samarra expedition was measured by its spectacular finds in both architecture and precious objects, the immense responsibility for bringing this expedition through the unexplored territories of Islamic archaeology to a successful conclusion presented an enormous physical and psychological challenge. In an effort that from the perspective of modern archaeology must be called Herculean, he excavated and examined nineteen sites [Great Mosque of al-Mutawakkil, Congregational Mosque of Madinat al-Mutawakkiliyya, Shiite Shrine Complex, Qubbat al-Ṣulaibiyya; palaces of Balkuwārā, Ṣūr ʿĪṣā, and the Qaṣr al-ʿĀshiq; the Cemetery at Shabbat al-Hawā; Mausoleum of Imām al-Dūr; Tall al-ʿAlīq; Ḥarba Bridge and finally the residential architecture at al-Quraina, al-Qāṭūn, al-Jubairiyya, and west of Ṣūr ʿĪṣā, and the baths] and collected a stupendous corpus of material, one that in many respects still forms the foundation for our knowledge of the city of Samarra and ʼAbbāsid art in the 3rd/9th centuries. What is astonishing is that Herzfeld himself considered his achievements during the first campaign in Samarra to be merely a dress rehearsal for the more ambitious second campaign which focused on the Dār al-Khilāfa." [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. Preface, p.IX."]

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes work sheet, narrative description and site plans.
General:
This 1.5 acre property is situated on the top of a hill with gardens on three sides of the main house. To the wet, a steep curving driveway lined with tall oleander trees and bordered with a variety of shrubs, plants and mature trees leads to the motor court edged with brick. The crushed granite of the motor court gives way to two "rugs" made of square paving stones interlaced with grass. Box hedges surround lemon trees on both sides of the front door--a theme repeated throughout the gardens. The lap pool in the swimming pool garden is adjoined by two ponds filled with aquatic plants, including papyrus, water lilies and cannas. Shrub borders surround the enclosed pool area. At the west end, a succulent bed with aloes and agaves makes a dramatic statement. A grapevine-covered pergola outside the fence is placed beside a small citrus groves. To the south, surrounded on three sides by the house, is a formal square courtyard garden, a quiet retreat dominated by the sound of water cascading into tiled basins. A stone and brick trellis covered with rose "Shot Silk" forms the fourth side of the square. The loggia on the east side offers shade during the hot summer months.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Bob Ray Offenhauser (architect, 1968) and Mark Bartos (landscape architect, 2001-2005).

Note on title page states: The collections made by the Exploring Expedition under Capt. Wilkes were brought to Washington and unpacked at the U. S. Patent Office, where they were on exhibition for several years. About 1851 they were transferred to the Smithsonian Building. This catalogue was presented to the Nat. Museum in January 1877 by Mr Peale in person. Accompanying letter of A. H. Clark to [G. B.] Goode, March 24, 1887 transmits catalogue to Goode, stating that it was found "Among the National Institute papers several months ago."

H. Johnson).

General:
When purchased in 1993 there was a pecan tree growing in the otherwise unkempt one-tenth acre property that had a neglected 1850 apartment building and a second building, now a guest house. The owner designed four garden rooms: a keyhole-shaped boxwood parterre, rose and vegetable beds, an open lawn with borders, and a fountain surrounded by semi-tropical perennials. Six hedges were planted as backdrop and for privacy, including euonymus, Japanese yew and lavender crape myrtle. A washed gravel patio with all-weather furniture, planted containers and an outdoor sink were installed between the two buildings. The parterre and neighboring rose garden can be seen from one end of the patio, the fountain from the other. The perennial bed surrounding the fountain contains farfugium (leopard plant), fatsia, papyrus, and a camellia with a fig vine covering the wall behind. Roses, azaleas, camellias, and a hibiscus provide nearly year round color. In the mild climate the owner sows lettuce seeds in September and harvests greens until it's too hot; the vegetables are replaced by celosia grown from saved seed. Other vegetables and herbs include carrots, beets, Swiss chard, radishes, a permanent rosemary and basil.

Persons associated with the garden include: the Dixon family (former owners, 1850-1920); Mrs. Alma Kellogg (former owner, 1920-1990); Cane Callon (former owner, 1990-1993); Robert Drane (garden assistant, 2000- )
