Bertillonage and criminal anthropology in Bucharest, 1893

O. Buda, I. N. Ceapă, A. Kozma

Abstract: In 1893 Mina Minovici published an anthropometric atlas with criminal offenders, including a collection of mug shots taken in Bucharest. The photographs were not only one of the first mug shots taken in Romania, but among the first in Europe. This historical note provides an insight into the origins of modern forensic medicine advances in Romania, and to the contemporary personalities in European criminal anthropology and anthropometric research.
Keywords: Mina Minovici, Bertillon’s system, mug shot, anthropometry, Romania.
