Approximately 20 linear feet of books, periodicals, maps, clippings, carvings, swords, pipes, and textiles donated to the Vietnam Archive by the famous anthropologist Gerald Hickey from his personal collection. The books are primarily written in French, but also include some Vietnamese and English publications. The dates of the material range throughout the 20th century and even some into the late 19th century. The majority of the books concern the study of the Montagnard tribes of Vietnam. The artifacts were collected during Hickey's anthropological fieldwork in the Vietnamese Highlands from the 1950s through the 1970s and include Montagnard hand-carved wooden statues of a peahen and an androgynous human figure which was placed on a grave from the Katu tribe. Also included are five swords and multiple examples of Jarai, Rhade, Bahnar, and Maa woven textiles to include shirts, blankets, and loincloths. There are also multiple examples of ornamented bamboo pipes of Bahanar, Cua, Stieng, and Halang origin.
