Betty Grenig Collection

Vietnam

In 1950s to the 1960s, Betty Grenig’s husband Robert Grenig was stationed with US Army in a host of Asian countries, including Vietnam. Much of this collection of 19 artifacts and 11 photographs comes from the Montagnards, an ethnic group who live 20 miles outside of Hue. It includes baskets, hats, weapons and a rain cloack made of plant materials.

The Betty Grenig Collection is held within the Anthropology Collections by the School of Human Evolution and Social Change (SHESC) at Arizona State University. If you would like more information on the collection, please contact Dr. Arleyn Simon, Curator of the SHESC Collections, at 480-965-6957 or via e-mail at Arleyn.Simon@asu.edu.
