Abstract

The genealogy of the field of anthropometric history has received relatively little scholarly attention over the years. This paper discusses the contributions to the development of the field made by sociologist Pitirim A. Sorokin and colleagues in the 1920s and early 1930s. In so doing, attention is also called to a number of important, but little-utilized anthropometric sources employed by Sorokin.
