This paper deals with the issue of politization of ethnology on the example of conflict between Ivo T. Franić as the head of Ethnographic Museum in Zagreb and Milovan Gavazzi, university professor and father of the practical ethnology in Croatia. The conflict started in 1935 when Ivo Franić became the head of the museum and take place mainly in the newspapers and less in ethnology publications.
From the begining of the debate (article in Belgrade's "Pravda") a lot of political qualifications can be found which directly correspond with the political situation in Yugoslavia between the two world wars, especially with the problem of national relationships. Although Franić and Gavazzi spoke mainly about science, their conflict was derived from their different political opinions. By analysis of texts concerning the conflict it became obvious that Franić was Yugoslav unitarist and Gavazzi was connected to the policy of Croatian Peasant Party which fought for an independent Croatia. It remains now to study how political orientation contaminate ethnography of Gavazzi.
