Papers of Géza Róheim, a Hungarian anthropologist who applied psychoanalytic techniques to cultural studies. The collection
includes drafts of writings and research materials, including transcriptions of the dreams and stories of Australian aborigines,
and a vocabulary of the Normanby Islanders.
Géza Róheim considered himself a professional anthropologist, although many see his work as an example of the Freudian school
of psychoanalytic theory. He is credited as one of the first to apply psychoanalysis to the study of world cultures.
