Historical NoteReturn to Top

The University of Montana has been offering courses in Anthropology since the 1930s as part of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Welfare. The first Anthropology professor was Dr. Harry H. Turney-High, who taught through WWII. He was followed by Dr. Carling Malouf. President Robert Johns instituted the linguistics program within the Department of Anthropology during his 1963 to 1966 tenure. The Department of Anthropology became a separate department in 1968.
