Ernst Herzfeld Papers

Preservation, digitization, and cataloging has been made possible by the Leon Levy Foundation. The cataloging of this collection commenced in September 2009, and will be ongoing until Summer 2011. Please be advised that some of the Series and categories are not hot linked to images yet as we are in the process of making them available.

Permission to reproduce and publish an item from the Archives is coordinated through the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery's Rights and Reproductions department. For inquiries on selecting images or appointments to research the collection, please contact the Archives.

Please use the expandable list to browse by specific locations. The names we use to identify the archaeological sites and the languages can have various spellings; the names we use are as determined by the Freer|Sackler Gallery, or other credible academic sources of current day. Please note that the use of Unicode within a search and in some web presentations do not have successful results. If such cases occur, consider performing your search without the use of special characters, as seen in the way we present archaeological sites below in the expandable list.
