Description
This is a phrenological chart describing the attributes of Thomas 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.

The original document was provided by Al Robinson during a Scan & Share Day event held at the Onondaga Hall on February 11, 2012.
