TitleReferee's report by Alexander Macalister, on a paper 'Data for the problem of evolution in man VI. A first study of the correlation of the human skull' by Alice Lee and Karl Pearson
DateOctober 1900
DescriptionSectional committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, in full. Only suggestion is to obtain the permission of the individuals whose measurements are used in the list before including their names, even though this has already been published. Does not suppose that any of them would refuse it although one distinguished anatomist whose head was measured refused to allow his name to appear on the list which Miss Lee has used.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1901].

Endorsed on verso as received 11 June 1900.
