Note

The 1953 and 1978 photographic prints are kept together here because they were found in the same container and both depict architectural sculpture in Deir Anba Shinuda and Deir Anba Bishuy in Sohag, Egypt. The smallest prints were likely originals by Harris from 1953, and the larger prints were likely printed by Dumbarton Oaks in 1978. The 1953 photographs correspond to the 1953 negatives in Series 01, Box 01, Folder 001.
