Description

A daguerreotype of John Collins Warren I circa 1848 when he was about seventy years old. This image would have been taken before Warren offered to purchase the Morton crania collection in 1853. Warren and Morton both owned their own crania collections. Comparisons and notes on variations of skulls were sent between one another. Morton presented casts that he claimed were representational of "typical skulls" to Warren which were later added into the Warren Anatomical collection.
