Description
The Harald Ingholt papers relating to Gandharan art document one aspect of this Near Eastern archaeologist's broad research interests. The archive contains production materials, such as a text draft and page layouts, related to Gandhāran Art in Pakistan, for which Ingholt wrote the text, as well as Inholt's related research materials on Gandharan art. These materials include hundreds of black-and-white photographs, notes, correspondence, offprints and ephemera. Further material relating to Gandharan art was added to the archive by James Michael Mahar.
