An Introduction to Polynesian Anthropology

Margaret Tltcomb, Librarian (1937)

Margaret Tltcomb, Librarian (1937)

Margaret Titcomb, after being coached by the ethnologists of Bishop Museum, searched a number of European museums during a visit on sabbatical leave. She paid particular attention to museums which had not been visited previously by members of the Bishop Museum staff, with good results. At Zurich, she located a collection made by Dr. Horner, who was astronomer with the Krusenstern Expedition of 1803-1806. At Caen, France, and at La Rochelle, material collected by Dumont d'Urville was seen. The unique fourlegged image of the Mangarevan god Tu was located in Rome. Some of the other museums visited were at Budapest, Geneva, Chambery, Florence, Brest, Cherbourg, Le Havre, Lille, Douai, and Braine-le-Comte. Photographs and notes taken on the tour were incorporated into the Museum's photograph catalog.
