An Austrian, Bronislaw Malinowski, arrived in the Trobriand Islands in June 1915.  He was an important 20th-century anthropologist.

 

His ethnography of the Trobriand Islands described the complex institution of the Kula ring, and became foundational for subsequent theories of reciprocity and exchange.
