Morton, Samuel George 1799-1851 Physician; born in Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 26, 1799. As early as 1834 he made a voyage to the West Indies in pursuit of his study of the diversity of the human races and the relations resulting from their contact. In 1840 he was president of the Academy of Natural Sciences at Philadelphia. He was the leading ethnologist of his time; and his Crania Americana and Crania Egyptica are standard works on ethnology as contributions to the natural history of man. He had a collection of 1,512 skulls, of which 900 were human—the largest and most valuable collection in the world. He died in Philadelphia, Pa., May 15, 185

D. said so by signing an appeal for a national testimonial to him. He died in New York City, July 15, 1868, and the same year a monument was erected in the Public Gardens, Boston, to perpetuate his discov
