The Treganza Museum

The Adan E. Treganza Anthropology Museum was founded in 1968 and named in honor of the founder of the department. It houses large collections of archaeological and ethnographic specimens from Africa, Oceania, Asia, and North America and small collections from Central and South America. There are also collections of photographs, tapes, and phonograph records from Africa and Europe. There is an archive of field notes and other materials associated with the collections. The museum offers opportunities and materials for student research and internships in archaeology and ethnology.

The Treganza Museum houses the Hohenthal Gallery, named after another original member of the department, William D. Hohenthal, a specialist in Brazilian studies. The Hohenthal Gallery is used for exhibits mounted by students and faculty as well as for traveling exhibitions. Smaller exhibits, generally related to specific courses being given, are mounted by the Treganza Museum in the Science Building and elsewhere.

The museum also publishes a series of occasional papers.
