Sample text

On their very first meeting, Peeters proposed himself as executive vice president; Pinon should become general secretary and Lecotté treasurer. Richard Dorson (USA) was appointed president, while Raul Cortazar (Buenos Aires) and Matthias Zender (Bonn) became vice presidents. One might have thought that this listing was just a joke (actually, it must have been a merry meeting, as Pinon returned to Liège in Peeters’ overcoat, as he somewhat ashamed reveals in a letter of excuse the following day35).

After a preliminary meeting in Geneva in 1945 and a General Assembly in Paris in 1947, CIAP was given a new start – with a new bylaw and a new structure. At the 1947 conference in Paris, the around sixty delegates boiled over with enthusiasm. There was a unanimous will to be ‘a strictly scientific organization, without the intervention of governmental authorities’ and to escape all the traps that the old CIAP had fallen into. 3 In 1947, CIAP had started out on its own, with an independent status in relation to UNESCO.

In 1957, UNESCO had signaled that a fusion with another member organization, IUAES (The International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences), was desirable, and in 1959 CIAP had to accept a de facto joint representation with IUAES in CIPSH. By the end of the 1950s, CIAP was by most standards bankrupt and paralyzed. The president constantly sought advice from Erixon, his only confident, but he seemed incapable of taking any initiatives, nor of resigning, only hoping for more generous credits or asking for deferments from an unwilling and critical UNESCO administration.
