Professor von Furer-Haimendorf an anthropologist of the School of Oriental and African Studies, who was sent there by the Government of India as a special officer in the Subansiri area in 1944 and Colonel Betts who was appointed first political officer in that area following Professor Haimendorf's expedition in 1946 Chairman,
