Summary/Abstract: The present paper discusses an important moment in the history of the Romanian ethnology, namely the institutionalization of such researches in Cluj-Napoca by means of founding the Folklore Archives of the Romanian Academy and the Institute of Geography at the University of Cluj, from the perspective of the relationships between the main pawns in this process: the young researcher Ion Muşlea and the Professor George Vâlsan. In achieving the purposes of this project, I used both classical sources (scientific works of the two), as well as correspondence, an unedited part which Ion Muşlea and George Vâlsan have written between 1927 and 1932.
