TitleReferee's report by Walter Frank Raphael Weldon, on a paper 'Mathematical contributions to the theory of evolution.—V. On the reconstruction of the stature of prehistoric races' by Karl Pearson
Date10 July 1898
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The investigations into living men are of greater value than the speculations into fossil hominids, although the results there are interesting. Does not have full enough understanding of anthropology to give a comprehensive opinion. Suggests the opinion of Francis Galton be taken as the primary one [RR/14/80].
