Ethnographic Society (Етнографічне товариство; Etnohrafichne tovarystvo). Founded in Kyiv in 1924 at the Museum of Anthropology and Ethnology of the All-Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, it became the All-Ukrainian Ethnographic Society in 1928 with branches in various cities of Ukraine. In 1928 the society had 320 members, and its president was Oleksander Malynka. It published one issue of Zapysky (1925), a bulletin (1927–8), and seven issues of Pobut (1927–30). The society was abolished at the beginning of the 1930s.
