An Anthropological Congress

Article metrics


THROUGH the courtesy of a friend, I have had the opportunity of seeing a copy of a circular of invitation, dated Paris, Feb. 15, 1930, to an anthropological congress described as XV6 Congrès Internationale d'Anthropologie et d'Archéologie Préhistorique: IV6 Session de l'Institut International d'Anthropologie: Portugal, 1930. This invitation is signed by the president and secretaries of the Institut International d'Anthropologie, and is issued from its address in Paris. Among the ‘comité d'honnour’ is one of the survivors of the ‘permanent committee’ of the XIV6 Congrès International (Geneva, 1912); another represents Switzerland on a “comité international de préparation scientifique des sessions”; but there is no other apparent link with the older series of congresses.
