Summary/Abstract: This study deals with the issues surrounding the origins of the establishment of the Oriental Institute during the 1920s and the roles played by Alois Musil and Zdeněk Fafl in this process. The edition of correspondence (1920–1928) between Alois Musil and Zdeněk Fafl (Arabists and promiment figures in interwar economic circles), which is presented in the second half of this study is one of the key sources showing Musil’s involvement in Czechoslovak economic and political circles, without whose support the Oriental Institute, conceived on such a broad specialist basis, could never have been established.
