Would Have Made a Great Coffee-Table Book

Another tip from Mojonaut Alecks (*thanks alecks! sorry alecks!*):

Ivy League nude posture photos - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Ivy League nude posture photos were taken in the 1940s through the 1970s of all incoming freshmen, ostensibly to gauge the rate and severity of rickets, scoliosis, and lordosis in the population. The project was run by William Herbert Sheldon and E.A. Hooton who may have been using the data to support their eugenical theory on body types and social hierarchy. What remained of the images were transferred to the Smithsonian and those were destroyed between 1995 and 2001.

(Sorry for the light postings today, Mojonauts: Mojo has an all-day meeting, Alan is caught in the Auto Show media tsunami, and my dog has a swollen anus from a nasty tapeworm infestation. We are the perfect storm of busy, crazy, and gross, here in the Poor Mojo's Offices.)
