Louise G. Robinovitch.


     The following resolution was introduced by Dr. Louise G. Robinovitch, and being reported out by the General Committee, was unanimously adopted by the Amsterdam Congress on September 14, 1901:
     “The Fifth International Congress of Criminal Anthropology, in meeting assembled at Amsterdam, expresses its profound sorrow on the occasion of the attack on the life of the President of the United States, and its consequences. The Congress considers this regrettable deed as a confirmation of the necessity for perseverance in scientific research regarding criminality and the means of combatting [sic] criminality, and of eliminating the causes which produce it, in order that we may arrive at a higher conception of humanity and a more just and efficacious state of social safety.”
