The Abushâdy Archive is an online repository of selected materials left behind by the Egyptian Romantic poet, Dr. Ahmed Zaky Abushâdy (1892-1955). Preserved by family members for two generations, The Abushâdy Archive houses poetry, paintings, illustrations, photographs, manuscripts, monographs, science and poetry journals, letters, diaries, audio recordings, and assorted ephemera. As the physical archive is processed, this site will present and contextualize selected materials and release them for scholarly and general interest.
In addition to exerting an influence on modern Arabic poetry, Abushâdy was a bee scientist, bacteriologist, and physician. Hence, the archive is useful to the study of Egyptian modernism across several disciplines.
