This chapter details the establishment of the Institute of Ethnic Affairs. In January 1945, John Collier resigned from the Department of the Interior where he had served for twelve years as Commissioner of the Bureau of Indian Affairs—longer than any Indian commissioner before or since. Together with his wife, anthropologist Laura Thompson, Collier founded the Institute of Ethnic Affairs. According to its prospectus, the Institute would be a nonprofit organization whose purpose was “to search for solutions to problems within and between white and colored races, cultural minority groups, and dependent peoples at home and abroad.” The Ethnic Institute would be interdisciplinary, educational in nature, and would recommend administrative changes requiring governmental action.
