A member of the Society of the Divine Word, Martin Gusinde was ordained a priest in 1911. The following year, he was sent to Chile as a missionary. He taught natural history at the German High school of Santiago and was passionate about the humanities, archaeology and anthropology. The Ethnographic and Anthropological Museum provided him with documentary resources and an educational framework.
