Although the proper collection and observation of necessary data with reference to the application of Mendel's laws of heredity to man has been brief, it has disclosed evidence significant enough to make it appear highly probable that many of the characters in man follow these laws as well as do the traits of lower animals.

The object of this thesis was to determine whether or not certain human traits were inherited, the mode of their transmission from parent to offspring, and, if possible, the establishment of any proof of linkage in the human line.
