Excavations in the Archive – An Update on the Ernst Herzfeld
Online Resources at the Freer|Sackler in Washington, DC
In 1946, Ernst Herzfeld donated the largest share of his papers to the
Freer Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. Despite
their crucial importance to the study of the art history, archaeology, and
early exploration of the Near East, the Herzfeld materials have only
recently been completely explored and catalogued at a detailed level.
With help of major grants from the Leon Levy Foundation, and the
Smithsonian Institution Collections Care and Preservation Fund, the
Freer|Sackler Archives was able to undertake an ambitious project to
preserve, digitise, and catalogue the contents of the Ernst Herzfeld
papers. As the cataloguing project nears completion, the Archives have
started producing web products to package the Herzfeld materials for
easy use and promotion. In this presentation we will give a brief
overview of the F|S Herzfeld Archives contents, an update on current
research on the Herzfeld papers F|S staff members are involved in,
present the cataloguing project and introduce the various web products
that have been created or are in the planning stages.
