  • Acquisition
    Walter Kaudern (1881-1942) was a qualified zoologist but gradually became more and more interested in human beings and ethnography. He gained his doctorate in zoology in 1910 and also had writings published early on in other disciplines, such as geology and botany. After Nordenskiöld died in 1932, Kaudern was put in charge of the Ethnographic Museum, and the appointment was made official in 1934.
