Face of Czolgosz Analyzed by Expert
Th[e] first striking
thing in his appearanc[e] is the fact that th[e] skull encasing
the brain is much larger in proportion to his general physical construction,
especially when seen from the front view, and a lin[e] drawn directly
over the fac[e] from ear to ear, embracing th[e] eyebrows, will
b[e] found very long. This is corroborated when th[e] side view
is measured, being even increased when w[e] take into consid[e]ration
that th[e] back part of his head is larger than the average.
The crown of th[e] head, when measured
around th[e] top of th[e] head from ear to ear, and when viewed
sideways, is likewis[e] very long, which is intensified by th[e]
fact that his ears are set somewhat lower than th[e] average.
In short, this man has be[en?] blessed
or cursed with a very active mind which would b[e] well balanced
ordinarily wer[e] his physical weight and development greater.
As it is, how[e]ver, th[e] nervous
system centered in the brain is not equally balanced physically.
This is usually th[e] cas[e] found in thos[e] types representing
the nervous, emotional and hysterical temperament.
With any high ambition, and thes[e]
classes of men generally have such ambition, th[e] mind is readily
warped into any given [d]irection that for the moment possesses
Th[e] soft and pathetic expression
that is evidenced in the photograph of th[e] man carries with it
a sullenness and singleness of purpose that would mak[e] him peculiarly
gifted had he given his mental strength to a worthier purpose.
This man has not any evidence of a
Semiti[c] type of fac[e], but rather of a Slavonic type. Taken from
a general consideration, however, thes[e] two races present more
cases of emotional insanity than all others. This is du[e] to [a]
large mental development and general physical weakness and incapacity
to nourish the same.
