According to this thread by Agrippa, modern "White Race" can be distinguished into 6 main races: Nordid, Alpinid, Mediterranid, Cromagnid, Dinarid and Osteuropid. I am aware than other races like Armenids which are also "Caucasian" but I speak only about European types, which are associated with European nations and culture.
According to data shown in this thread and in SNPA, Dalo-Falids are essentially unaltered Cromagnid types, id est not a Nordid type. On the other hand, many early anthropologists and eugenicists seem to consider them as Nordid race. Is it because of incomplete knowledge about racial types of Europe in their times or maybe deliberate classification?
I will give few examples of such opinions held by early anthropologists and eugenicists.
Egon Freiherr von Eickstedt divided "Nordics" further into "Teuto-Nordics", "Dalo-Nordics" and "Fenno-Nordics". "Dalo-Nordics" are just Dalo-Falids, I guess? He has noticed Cromagnid admixture but he still considered them in "Nordic" spectrum.
Hans F. K. Gunther classified Dalo-Falids as "Phalic race". But this idea was dropped in many of his works, including "The Racial Elements in European History". In these works he seemed to consider "Phalics" as part of bigger "Nordic" race.
Famous eugenicist Lothrop Stoddard once criticized German nationalist ideologists who later had large impact on national socialism by saying:
As far, as I know, NW Germany is region, where Dalo-Falids are most common. It's safe to assume that Lothrop Stoddard had them on mind, while he was talking about "Nordics" in Germany.Originally Posted by Lothrop Stoddard
There are more examples of such classifications, but I think these three I showed are enough to serve as an example.
Now - after this long introduction - I have following questions:
1) Why do these early anthropologists/eugenicists classified Dalo-Falids as "Nordics"? Is it because of incomplete knowledge in their times or they had some basis for their views?
2) How was Dalo-Falid sub-race derived? Are they primarily Cromagnids or are there some other elements, namely Nordid? Maybe modern Dalo-Falids are blended with Nordids to some extent like SNPA suggests and that's why they were classified as "Nordic" in early works?
