- This is a phrenological chart created for Samuel Armour, age 13, issued by Alfred Hagarty, practical phrenologist.
Phrenology is a pseudoscience primarily focused on measurements of the human skull, based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind, and that certain brain areas have localized, specific functions or modules. This phrenological study was likely conducted at a local fair.
