On the laws of inheritance in man: I. Inheritance of physical characters
ABOUT eight years ago I determined to supplement the data obtained by Mr Francis Galton for his work Natural Inheritance by a rather wider series of measurements on blood relations in man. Mr Galton had most generously placed his original data at my disposal and I had used them as far as stature was concerned in my memoir of 1895t and in a joint paper with Dr Lee in 1896+. The eye-colour data of his Family Records were not reduced? until after the discovery of a method for dealing with characters not capable of exact quantitative measurementlI, and it is only recently that the full schemne of relationships back to great-grandparents has been completed?
