Summary/Abstract: This article is based on unpublished archival material of the State Archives of the Republic of Macedonia in Skoplje from the years 1925 to 1940, which were analysed in terms of two aspects. On the one hand, it can be seen how the Faculty of Arts in Skoplje itself and its wide range of academic fields were established in the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. These included, amongst others, Byzantine Studies, Historical Geography and Eth nography. On the other hand, this article deals with an outstanding researcher of that time in the person of Milenko S. Filipović (1902–1969). He was a lecturer and later a professor of Ethnology and Ethnography, who regularly incorporated all three aforesaid academic fields into his publications. His personal as well as the institutional development of these academic fields were abruptly interrupted by the Second World War (1941), but were revived with new vigour in Belgrade after 1945.
