Graphic is a Bust Designed by L.N. Fowler
The ultimate, award winning sight on modern and historical phrenology.
This sight has a strong positive bias towards phrenology, but it also has
extensive information on the history of phrenology, quotations of phrenology,
and an extensive bibliography.
A web site compiled by students at Wabash College for a class project.
There is a focus on Gall and the birth of phrenology, phrenology's popularization
by Fowler and Wells, and the 20th century revival of phrenology.
This site is hard to navigate, but it has lots of valuable information
if you are patient enough to find it.
This sites more significant contribution is an interactive head
chart. Click on the sections of the head to get the interpretation
by Fowler and Wells.
Just for fun--send in the measurements of your head and the sites
authors are supposed to send back your phrenological report. This
is an example of how phrenology has been adapted into modern culture.
