|André J.F. Köbben (1925-2019), Amsterdam, The Netherlands (coll. in situ in 1961)
Köbben is considered the most important "ancestor" of Dutch anthropology. What was previously called “Volkenkunde”, practiced by astute "armchair" scholars, now became field-based ethnography and anthropology. Köbben himself has done fieldwork among coffee and cocoa farmers in Ivory Coast and later in Suriname among the Djuka Maroons.
