Antoin Sevruguin operated a successful commercial photography studio in Tehran and was a court photographer to Nasr ed-Din Shah and succeeding Qajar rulers. Sevruguin's daughter and heir donated his glass negatives to the American Presbyterian Mission in Tehran. The Committee for Islamic Culture, which administered the Islamic Archives, purchased 695 negatives from the Presbyterian Mission in 1951. The collection also includes 164 silver gelatin prints, 98 acquired by Myron Bement Smith(MBS) in 1934 and 66 donated by Joseph Upton in 1953. The glass negatives are numbered but without apparent organization. MBS organized his photoprints into subject categories. Upton's photoprints are numbered according to a handwritten caption list. [Located Bay 7] For specific information on items in the collection search Sevruguin on the Smithsonian Collections Search Center web site http://collections.si.edu .
- 66 black-and-white gelatin silver photoprints, unmounted, were a gift from Joseph Upton, received by the committee for Islamic Culture, as reported in their official minutes of October 24, 1953. The 66 photoprints were initially purchased by Joseph Upton in 1928 from Antoin Sevruguin in Tehran.
- 695 glass negatives were included into the "Islamic Archives," which was administered jontly by the committee for Islamic Culture and the committee for Arabic and Islamic Studies of the American Council of Learned Societies. According to the official minutes, the committee for Islamic Culture reported purchasing the 696 glass plates during their fiscal years 1951-1952 from the American Presbyterian Mission in Tehran. Antoin Sevruguin's daughter gave these plates to the mission with instruction that they be sold for the benefit of the mission.
- 98 gelatin silver photoprints were collected by Myron Bement Smith after he viewed a portion of Sevruguin's negatives in 1934 ( these include recent finds in the Myron Bement Smith collection).
In addition of Antoin Sevruguin's 695 glass negatives and 164 silver gelatin prints in the Myron Bement Smith collection the Archives holds: 18 albumen prints in theJay Bisno Collection of Sevruguin Photographs (FSA A.15); 34 photographic prints in the Ernst Herzfeld Papers (FSA A.6); as well as a photograph album and individual albumen prints donated by Stephen Arpee (FSA A2011.03). Finally, the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives also own 3 separate gelatin silver prints.

Biographical / Historical:
Antoin Sevruguin managed and operated one of the most successful commercial photography studios in Tehran in the late 19th century. Born in the 1840s in Iran, Sevruguin's mother returned with her children to her hometown of Tbilisi after his father Vassil, a Russian diplomat in Iran, died in a horse riding accident. Trained as a painter, Sevruguin returned to Iran in the early 1870s accompanied by his two brothers, establishing a photography studio first in Tabriz and then Tehran. His studio's ties to Tbilisi, however, persisted through the years; many of the early portraits of Dervishes and women have been simultaneously attributed to Antoin Sevruguin and Dimitri Yermakov, the Georgian photographer who is often referred to as Sevruguin's mentor from Tbilisi. Many of Antoin Sevruguin's photographs were published as early as 1885 in travelogues, journals and books indicating that by that time he had a fully established practice in Tehran's Ala al-Dawla street, with ties to the court of Nasir al-Din Shah Qajar. Often unacknowledged as the producer of published images in his own time - the 1902 photographic survey of Persepolis being the most glaring of such authorial misrepresentations - he was nevertheless celebrated and acknowledged for his artistic vision and his keen eye for composition, achieving the Medal of Lion and Sun from Nasir al-Din Shah, the 1897 Medal of Honour in the Brussels International Exposition, and the 1900 Medal of Honour in Paris International Exposition. Reflecting a career that spans nearly half a century, Sevruguin's diverse body of work includes studio portraits of families, women and dervishes, survey photographs of archeological sites, objects, landscapes and architecture, and photographs of royalty, high officials and ceremonies of the Qajar court. The range of his output not only demonstrates his own pictorial concerns and artistic abilities but also the divergent interests of his clients. Despite numerous devastating incidents throughout his career - the loss of more than half of his negatives in a 1908 blast and fire, an unsuccessful attempt at diversifying into cinematography in the 1910s, and the confiscation of the remainder of his negatives in the mid-1920s to name a few - his studio remained operational even after his death in 1933. A number of negatives from the Sevruguin studio can be dated to the years after Antoin's death, indicating that the Sevruguin studio continued to be commercially viable. As one of the most prolific early commercial photographers in Iran, Antoin Sevruguin's artistic legacy has since proved far more enduring.

Biographical / Historical:
Antoin Sevruguin is one of the early pioneers of commercial photography in Iran. He arrived in Iran from Tbilisi, Georgia in the mid 1870s to set up shop in Ala al-Dawla street in Tehran. From the early days, Sevruguin's studio was trusted both by the Qajar court and by foreign visitors to Iran. Highly regarded for their artistic ingenuity outside Iran, Sevruguin's photographs of 'ethnic types,' architecture and landscape, and depictions of daily life of Tehran found their way into foreign travelogues, magazines and books. As such, he stands alone in a relatively large group of early Iranian photographers for being recognized and celebrated outside the boundaries of the country. Antoin Sevruguin passed away in 1933, although his family studio continued for some time as a commercial enterprise.

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 prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives.

The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories--i.e. Prehistoric pottery, bronzes, stone; Persepolis; Sasanian monuments; Syrian monuments, Persian architecture and landscapes, etc.--irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1--6. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located.

In addition to the blueprint binders there were three Albums - Photo Files 25 (Sasanian buildings), 27 (Parthian and Sasanian sculptures) and 28 (Pre-Achaemenian monuments and Pasargadae)--in which Herzfeld had arranged prints in a sequence for study or publication purposes. The order in those Photo Files retains that in the Albums.

In addition to the glass negatives, there is an even larger number of cut films. On his archaeological study trips, Herzfeld was accustomed to supplement his photographs on glass plates with photographs on cut film--sometimes of the same subjects, often of other subjects. Some prints to these negative were identified on the back or could be identified from other prints; but in many instances, especially of landscapes, it has not been possible to place them, except in general categories.

Prints from the cut films have been organized, so far as feasible, in groups of related material and placed in the Photo Files of similar subject matter. The negative number appears in the Photo File. Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources for study purposes. Of those there are no negatives, So far as possible, the prints have been identified and placed in the appropriate Photo File.

The Samarra material, Photo Files 19--23, is in a special category. Files 22 and 23 were arranged in Albums labeled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II", respectively. The only identification was written on the backs of the prints, glued to the pages of the Albums. These notations have been transferred to the captions in the Photo Files. These two Albums apparently were arranged by Herzfeld with a view to a publication of the architecture of Samarra which was never prepared. The drawings for such a publication are in this collection.

With such a large number of prints, especially in view of the fact that some were arranged in different fashions for different purposes, it is inevitable that there should be some duplication and that related material may be found in several Photo Files. The only way a user can be sure he has not missed material concerning his particular interest is to examine the Photo File Lists where every print is recorded. Inasmuch as scholars study the same monument from different points of view, the fact that a photograph has been published in one context does not diminish its value in another context.

Note: Photo Files 35--42 consist of Oriental Institute prints of which the negatives are in Chicago. The prints may be published only with the written permission of the Oriental Institute.
- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files," which is composed of b&w glass negatives, color lantern slides, b&w photographic prints (both modern and original), b&w cyanotypes, large format b&w films, and b&w duplicate prints (both modern and original), iwas originally organized into three subseries, the glass n and covers Herzfeld's travels and surveys of the most major archaeological sites in Persia, Mesopotamia and Northern Syria, from 1923 to 1931. It also covers the field activities at Pasargadae (Spring 1928) and of the Persepolis Expedition (1931).
- The Herzfeld Papers in the Archives contains 3,890 glass negatives (FSA A.6 04.GN.0001- to FSA A.6 04.GN.5075), which includes eight sketchbooks (Skizzenbücher I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, and VIII), covers Herzfeld's travels and surveys of the most major archaeological sites in Persia from 1923 to 1924.
The Herzfeld Papers in the Archives contains 3,890 glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 5,066, without any apparent organization. Of most of these, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories&#x2014i.e. Prehistoric pottery, bronzes, stone; Persepolis; Sasanian monuments; Syrian monuments, Persian architecture and landscapes, etc.&#x2014irrespective of the number on the negative.
In addition to the glass negatives and blueprints, there are a series of 16 binders made of photographic prints (Photo Files, Nos. 1-16) and three albums (Photo Files, Nos. 25, 27, and 28). As well, approximately 1,069 photographic prints, which have no negatives, arranged in Photo Files 19-23, are in a special category. In File 19, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol. 1: Der Wandschmuck der Bauten von Samarra und seine Ornamentik. In File 20, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol.2: Die Keramik von Samarra von F. Sarre, supplemented by unpublished photos of ceramics. In the same file, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol.6: Die Geschichte der Stadt Samarra. In File 21, prints of illustrations in Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra, vol.3: Die Malereien von Samarra. At the end of the file, there are unpublished photographs. Files 22 and 23 were arranged in Albums labeled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II", respectively. These two Albums apparently were arranged by Herzfeld with a view to a publication of the architecture of the palaces, mosques and private houses of Samarra which was never prepared. The only identification, written on the backs of the prints which were glued to the Album page, had a first number in red crayon used in the captions as the negative number. In some cases, an additional number is given in blue crayon, possibly indicating a revision of the list or an alternative negative. The encircled number on the margin gives the position in the Album.
In addition to the glass negatives and the Photo Files, there is an even larger number of cut films and a package of duplicate prints which are, for the most part, unpublished. On his archaeological study trips, Herzfeld was accustomed to supplement his photographs on glass plates with photographs on cut film&#x2014sometimes of the same subjects, often of other subjects.
Arrangement:
- Glass Negatives, numbered from 1 to 5,075, originally stored in 80 wooden boxes of approximately 50 photographs each, are housed in document boxes and stored on shelves.
- Prints are organized in sequential number following publication series, "Die Ausgrabungen von Samarra." They are arranged in photo file folders which are housed in document boxes, and stored on shelves.
Biographical / Historical:
"Ernst Emil Herzfeld (1879-1948) was an orientalist whose many talents led him to explore all phases of Near Eastern culture, from the prehistoric period to Islamic times and from linguistics and religion to art and architecture." [Margaret Cool Root, 1976: "The Herzfeld Archive of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Metropolitan Museum Journal, Vol. 11, pp. 119-124."]
Local Numbers:
FSA A.06 4
General:
Titles are provided by Xavier Courouble, FSg Archives cataloger, based on Ernst Herzfeld's publications and on Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive.
Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
The Papers primarly relate to Herzfeld's survey of the monuments, artifacts, and inscriptions of Western Asia between 1903 and 1947 and particularly to his excavations at Istakhr (Iran), Paikuli (Iraq), Pasargadae (Iran), Persepolis (Iran), Samarra (Iraq) and Kuh-e Khwaja (Iran), as well as various archaeological expeditions throughout Cilicia, Mesopotamia, Northern Syria, and Persia. Additional research material, probably collected by Moritz Sobernheim and Max Freiherr von Oppenheim but preserved by Ernst Herzfeld, was part of a broader project, that of Max van Berchem's "Matériaux pour un Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum."

- "Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Cyanotypes File 2", which was arranged by Ernst Herzfeld, provides 225 cyanotype prints (blueprints) related to archaeological sites and rock relief inscriptions and sculptures at Bisutun site (Iran), Jinjun (Iran), Kurangun (Iran), Sarpul (Iran), Dukkan i Daud (Iran), Sahna (Iran), Sardasht (Iran), Nurabad (Iran) and the ruins of Mil-i Azhdaha tower (Iran), Kaleh-i Safid (Iran), Qasr-i Abu Nasr (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Istakhr (Iran), and Pasargadae (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."

Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 10 additional files in excess of the 24 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 2, Volume 2", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 112 photographic prints related to archaeological sites and rock relief inscriptions and sculptures at Bisutun site (Iran), Jinjun (Iran), Nurabad (Iran) and the ruins of Mil-i Azhdaha tower (Iran), Kaleh-i Safid (Iran), Qasr-i Abu Nasr (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Istakhr (Iran), and Pasargadae (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- "Photo File 2, Volume 2" is composed of 113 photographic prints, made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.2193; FSA a.6 04.GN.1161; FSA a.6 04.GN.0418; FSA a.6 04.GN.2192; FSA a.6 04.GN.1190; FSA a.6 04.GN.2195; FSA a.6 04.GN.2196; FSA a.6 04.GN.2197; FSA a.6 04.GN.1179; FSA a.6 04.GN.0981; FSA a.6 04.GN.0980; FSA a.6 04.GN.0982; FSA a.6 04.GN.0453; FSA a.6 04.GN.0470; FSA a.6 04.GN.0276; FSA a.6 04.GN.0451; FSA a.6 04.GN.0275; FSA a.6 04.GN.0277; FSA a.6 04.GN.0455; FSA a.6 04.GN.0272; FSA a.6 04.GN.0988; FSA a.6 04.GN.0412; FSA a.6 04.GN.1538; FSA a.6 04.GN.0466; FSA a.6 04.GN.0415; FSA a.6 04.GN.0459; FSA a.6 04.GN.0297; FSA a.6 04.GN.0295; FSA a.6 04.GN.1187; FSA a.6 04.GN.0458; FSA a.6 04.GN.0278; FSA a.6 04.GN.0452; FSA a.6 04.GN.0450; FSA a.6 04.GN.0491; FSA a.6 04.GN.0462; FSA a.6 04.GN.0463; FSA a.6 04.GN.1117; FSA a.6 04.GN.0469; FSA a.6 04.GN.0465; FSA a.6 04.GN.0464; FSA a.6 04.GN.0456; FSA a.6 04.GN.0409; FSA a.6 04.GN.0410; FSA a.6 04.GN.1533; FSA a.6 04.GN.1532; FSA a.6 04.GN.1119; FSA a.6 04.GN.1006; FSA a.6 04.GN.1160; FSA a.6 04.GN.2215; FSA a.6 04.GN.2216; FSA a.6 04.GN.2217; FSA a.6 04.GN.2214; FSA a.6 04.GN.1545; FSA a.6 04.GN.1547; FSA a.6 04.GN.1546; FSA a.6 04.GN.1544; FSA a.6 04.GN.1548; FSA a.6 04.GN.1549; FSA a.6 04.GN.1550; FSA a.6 04.GN.1551; FSA a.6 04.GN.1468; FSA a.6 04.GN.1468a; FSA a.6 04.GN.0422; FSA a.6 04.GN.0308; FSA a.6 04.GN.0307; FSA a.6 04.GN.0326; FSA a.6 04.GN.2240; FSA a.6 04.GN.2241; FSA a.6 04.GN.0268; FSA a.6 04.GN.1564; FSA a.6 04.GN.1567; FSA a.6 04.GN.1568; FSA a.6 04.GN.1565; FSA a.6 04.GN.1566; FSA a.6 04.GN.0964; FSA a.6 04.GN.2242; FSA a.6 04.GN.2243; FSA a.6 04.GN.1186; FSA a.6 04.GN.1185; FSA a.6 04.GN.1184; FSA a.6 04.GN.1183; FSA a.6 04.GN.1182; FSA a.6 04.GN.1181; FSA a.6 04.GN.1180; FSA a.6 04.GN.1062; FSA a.6 04.GN.1061; FSA a.6 04.GN.1060; FSA a.6 04.GN.1059; FSA a.6 04.GN.1058; FSA a.6 04.GN.1057; FSA a.6 04.GN.1056; FSA a.6 04.GN.1055; FSA a.6 04.GN.1054; FSA a.6 04.GN.1053; FSA a.6 04.GN.1052; FSA a.6 04.GN.1051; FSA a.6 04.GN.1050; FSA a.6 04.GN.0421; FSA a.6 04.GN.0420; FSA a.6 04.GN.0411; FSA a.6 04.GN.2179; FSA a.6 04.GN.2180; FSA a.6 04.GN.2182; FSA a.6 04.GN.2184; FSA a.6 04.GN.2181; FSA a.6 04.GN.2185; FSA a.6 04.GN.2186; FSA a.6 04.GN.2187; FSA a.6 04.GN.2188; FSA a.6 04.GN.2183; FSA a.6 04.GN.2249; FSA a.6 04.GN.2250; FSA a.6 04.GN.2251; FSA a.6 04.GN.2252."

Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 10 additional files in excess of the 24 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

- "Photo File 5, Volume 3", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 141 photographic prints of antiquities and from archaeological sites such as Bisutun Site (Iran), Istakhr (Iran), Naqsh-i Rajab (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Pasargadae (Iran), and Persepolis (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- Additional information from staff reads, "Ernst Herzfeld has visited the Sevruguin Studio in Tehran (Iran) and purchased several Antoin Sevruguin photographic prints. Thirteen of them (FSA A.6 04.PF.05.v3.001; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.002; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.003; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.003a; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.004; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.005; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.006; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.007a; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.007b; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.008a; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.008b; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.009; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.037b) are in the Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Photo File 5, Volume 3."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Persepolis (Photo File 5, vol. 3)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 10 additional files in excess of the 24 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 11, Volume 2", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 188 photographic prints which relate to field study of various architectural buildings and archaeological remains at Isfahan (Iran), Linjan District (Iran), Pasargadae (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Band-i Amir (Iran), Firuzabad (Iran), Shiraz (Iran), Island of Kharg (Iran), Na'in (Iran), Kerman (Iran), Sistan (Iran), and Zahedan (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- "Photo File 11, Volume 2" is composed of 188 photographic prints, made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.0945; FSA a.6 04.GN.0956; FSA a.6 04.GN.1960; FSA a.6 04.GN.1958; FSA a.6 04.GN.1961; FSA a.6 04.GN.1959; FSA a.6 04.GN.1964; FSA a.6 04.GN.1962; FSA a.6 04.GN.1967; FSA a.6 04.GN.1963; FSA a.6 04.GN.1966; FSA a.6 04.GN.1969; FSA a.6 04.GN.1970; FSA a.6 04.GN.1965; FSA a.6 04.GN.1968; FSA a.6 04.GN.2116; FSA a.6 04.GN.2556; FSA a.6 04.GN.2557; FSA a.6 04.GN.2558; FSA a.6 04.GN.2559; FSA a.6 04.GN.2560; FSA a.6 04.GN.2561; FSA a.6 04.GN.2562; FSA a.6 04.GN.2563; FSA a.6 04.GN.2564; FSA a.6 04.GN.2565; FSA a.6 04.GN.2566; FSA a.6 04.GN.2567; FSA a.6 04.GN.2569; FSA a.6 04.GN.2568; FSA a.6 04.GN.2570; FSA a.6 04.GN.2571; FSA a.6 04.GN.2573; FSA a.6 04.GN.2572; FSA a.6 04.GN.2576; FSA a.6 04.GN.2575; FSA a.6 04.GN.2574; FSA a.6 04.GN.2541a; FSA a.6 04.GN.0955; FSA a.6 04.GN.2577; FSA a.6 04.GN.2578; FSA a.6 04.GN.0946; FSA a.6 04.GN.1972; FSA a.6 04.GN.2579; FSA a.6 04.GN.2580; FSA a.6 04.GN.0953; FSA a.6 04.GN.1971; FSA a.6 04.GN.2581; FSA a.6 04.GN.2582; FSA a.6 04.GN.2583; FSA a.6 04.GN.2585; FSA a.6 04.GN.2584; FSA a.6 04.GN.2586; FSA a.6 04.GN.2590; FSA a.6 04.GN.2591; FSA a.6 04.GN.2588; FSA a.6 04.GN.2587; FSA a.6 04.GN.2589; FSA a.6 04.GN.2593; FSA a.6 04.GN.2592; FSA a.6 04.GN.2594; FSA a.6 04.GN.2595; FSA a.6 04.GN.2500; FSA a.6 04.GN.0952; FSA a.6 04.GN.2596; FSA a.6 04.GN.2597; FSA a.6 04.GN.0951; FSA a.6 04.GN.2599; FSA a.6 04.GN.2598; FSA a.6 04.GN.2600; FSA a.6 04.GN.2601; FSA a.6 04.GN.2602; FSA a.6 04.GN.2603; FSA a.6 04.GN.2604; FSA a.6 04.GN.2605; FSA a.6 04.GN.2606; FSA a.6 04.GN.2607; FSA a.6 04.GN.2608; FSA a.6 04.GN.2609; FSA a.6 04.GN.2610; FSA a.6 04.GN.2611; FSA a.6 04.GN.2612; FSA a.6 04.GN.2613; FSA a.6 04.GN.2614; FSA a.6 04.GN.2616; FSA a.6 04.GN.2618; FSA a.6 04.GN.2620; FSA a.6 04.GN.2617; FSA a.6 04.GN.2619; FSA a.6 04.GN.2621; FSA a.6 04.GN.2622; FSA a.6 04.GN.2623; FSA a.6 04.GN.2624; FSA a.6 04.GN.2626; FSA a.6 04.GN.2629; FSA a.6 04.GN.2627a; FSA a.6 04.GN.2628; FSA a.6 04.GN.2627; FSA a.6 04.GN.2631; FSA a.6 04.GN.2630; FSA a.6 04.GN.2631a; FSA a.6 04.GN.2615; FSA a.6 04.GN.2632; FSA a.6 04.GN.2633; FSA a.6 04.GN.2637; FSA a.6 04.GN.2638; FSA a.6 04.GN.2635; FSA a.6 04.GN.2636; FSA a.6 04.GN.2634; FSA a.6 04.GN.2744; FSA a.6 04.GN.2646; FSA a.6 04.GN.2647; FSA a.6 04.GN.2648; FSA a.6 04.GN.2640; FSA a.6 04.GN.2639; FSA a.6 04.GN.2641; FSA a.6 04.GN.2642; FSA a.6 04.GN.2645; FSA a.6 04.GN.2643; FSA a.6 04.GN.2644; FSA a.6 04.GN.1973; FSA a.6 04.GN.1974; FSA a.6 04.GN.2649; FSA a.6 04.GN.1975; FSA a.6 04.GN.2656; FSA a.6 04.GN.2653; FSA a.6 04.GN.2654; FSA a.6 04.GN.2655; FSA a.6 04.GN.2651; FSA a.6 04.GN.2650; FSA a.6 04.GN.2652; FSA a.6 04.GN.2711; FSA a.6 04.GN.1976; FSA a.6 04.GN.2657; FSA a.6 04.GN.2658; FSA a.6 04.GN.2660; FSA a.6 04.GN.2659; FSA a.6 04.GN.1063; FSA a.6 04.GN.1067; FSA a.6 04.GN.0948; FSA a.6 04.GN.1064; FSA a.6 04.GN.1065; FSA a.6 04.GN.0184; FSA a.6 04.GN.0950; FSA a.6 04.GN.0183; FSA a.6 04.GN.0947; FSA a.6 04.GN.1023; FSA a.6 04.GN.1073; FSA a.6 04.GN.1017; FSA a.6 04.GN.1020; FSA a.6 04.GN.1015; FSA a.6 04.GN.1025; FSA a.6 04.GN.1072; FSA a.6 04.GN.1071; FSA a.6 04.GN.1074; FSA a.6 04.GN.1024; FSA a.6 04.GN.0954; FSA a.6 04.GN.0176; FSA a.6 04.GN.1070; FSA a.6 04.GN.1068; FSA a.6 04.GN.1019; FSA a.6 04.GN.1152; FSA a.6 04.GN.1018; FSA a.6 04.GN.1021; FSA a.6 04.GN.1016; FSA a.6 04.GN.2868; FSA a.6 04.GN.2863; FSA a.6 04.GN.2870; FSA a.6 04.GN.2871; FSA a.6 04.GN.2872; FSA a.6 04.GN.2873; FSA a.6 04.GN.2874; FSA a.6 04.GN.2875; FSA a.6 04.GN.2876; FSA a.6 04.GN.2877; FSA a.6 04.GN.2860; FSA a.6 04.GN.2861; FSA a.6 04.GN.2862; FSA a.6 04.GN.2863; FSA a.6 04.GN.2864; FSA a.6 04.GN.2865; FSA a.6 04.GN.2866; FSA a.6 04.GN.2867; FSA a.6 04.GN.1192; FSA a.6 04.GN.1195."

Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled five albums including Photo Files, Nos. 22, 23, 25, 27, and 28. In early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 10 additional files in excess of the 24 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Photo file 28 follows an album prepared by Herzfeld in which he had arranged prints in a sequence for study or publication. The order in the photo file retains that in the album.

- "Photo File 30", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 464 photographic prints which relate primarly to an expedition (September 2 to November 18, 1905) from Assur (Iraq) to Shiraz (Iran) ("Von Kalat Schergat nach Schiraz, 1905"), and subsquently to an expedition (January 25, 1925 to March 21, 1925) from Zahedan, in the province of Sistan and Baluchestan (Iran), to Salami (Iran), a village south of Mashhad (Iran) in the province of Khorasan. This trip ultimately led Herzfeld to Tehran (Iran).
Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Photographs from Persia (Photo File 30)
Arrangement:
- In early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 10 additional files, including Photo File 30, in excess of the 24 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.
