This is the very first work of its kind that includes aclassification system for fingerprints. Galton, a cousin ofCharles Darwin, set out to use fingerprints as an aid indetermining heredity and racial background. While he soondiscovered that fingerprints offered no firm clues to anindividual's intelligence or genetic history, he was able toscientifically prove that fingerprints do not change overthe course of one's lifetime, and that no two fingerprintsare identical.These same characteristics are still in use today.
