Maximilian ("Max") Franz Thiel (1865-1939), Hamburg, Germany
Linden-Museum, Stuttgart, Germany (1908)
Ludwig Bretschneider, Munich, Germany (1970)
Munich Private Collection

Maximilian Franz Thiel was the son of Rosetta Albertina Hernsheim, the sister of Eduard and Franz Hernsheim, the founders of the trading company Hernsheim & Co. From 16 January 1884, he worked for the company on Jaluit (Marshall Islands). In 1886 he went to German New Guinea, where he lived on Matupi(t) near Rabaul and in the Bismarck Archipelago. He became a partner in Hernsheim & Co in 1892 and managing director by 1903 at the latest. On 16 May 1910, Thiel left German New Guinea and returned to Germany, where he managed the Hernsheim company as director until 1932. He died in Hamburg in 1939.

Ethnographic collections were an important side business for Thiel and Hernsheim & Co. Objects from Thiel's collections can be found today in many museums in Europe and the United States.

Between 1911 and 1921, the Museum für Völkerkunde Hamburg received over 450 objects from Germany's Pacific colonies through Thiel, which the museum claims were "high-quality donations". Felix von Luschan, who was responsible for the Africa and Oceania collections of the Ethnological Museum in Berlin, was also supplied with ethnographic artefacts by Thiel. Another of Thiel's customers was Karl von Linden, whose ethnological collection was to lead to the founding of the Linden Museum in Stuttgart.

Francis Richard Parish, lieutenant in the Württemberg Queen Olga Dragoon Regiment, was transferred to the Schutztruppe for German East Africa at his request in the summer of 1901 and arrived in Dar-es-Salam in September of that year. He left the capital of the colony in December 1901 and travelled through its entire territory from east to west in order to take command of the Ishangani station on Lake Kivu after a march of around three months. Parish could not cope with the climatic conditions and fell seriously ill. He returned to Europe at the beginning of July 1903 and died just three weeks later.

Munich Private Collection

Karl Paul Kollmann was born in Leipzig on 9 July 1865. At the age of twenty-one, he embarked on a military career and joined the Electoral Saxon Army. In 1894 he joined the Schutztruppe for German East Africa. He undertook numerous research trips to areas around Lake Victoria. In his book "The Victoria Nyanza", published in 1899, he writes: " ...on my numerous excursions and expeditions west, south and east of the lake I had the most favourable opportunities to make extensive and valuable collections of all kinds...". He also reported that he owed it to museum director Felix von Luschan that he was able to bring the objects to Europe. Kollmann had worked for several months at the Ethnological Museum in Berlin in 1893, where Luschan introduced him to the ethnology of the German colonies. He was also in contact with Karl Weule and Bernhard Ankermann, who viewed and organised his collection in Berlin.
After his promotion to captain in March 1900, Kollmann returned to Germany, where he remained in military service until shortly before his death in 1923.

The collector of the artifacts, Gottlieb Adolf Stecker (1859-1939), was a Herrnhut missionary and served in Labrador (1884-1895) and Alaska (1901-1913). The present artifacts were collected during his stay in Alaska and come from his brother's personal possessions.

The Herrnhut Mission encouraged its brothers to have objects made for sale. In the Museum für Völkerkunde in Dresden (entrance before 1927) and in the Völkerkunde Museum Herrnhut (entrance before 1910 / 11) there are 92 works today with his social biography, which he sold to the museums.
