Bertil J. Lundman
Dr. Bertil J. Lundman, Professor of Physical Anthropology at the University of Uppsala (Sweden), is one of Scandinavia's foremost anthropologists. He was born in Sweden in 1899 and educated at the University of Uppsala, where he has spent his entire academic career. Professor Lundman graduated from Uppsala in 1925 with a B.Sc. degree for his work in botany and geography. While working in these fields, he turned his attention to the study of geology, archaeology, ancient languages, and theology. As a result of his theological studies, he published several works on Swedish religious geography, and in 1935 he was awarded a B. Div. degree by the University of Uppsala.
Dr. Lundman's findings in these various sciences led to his interest in physical anthropology, and in the early 1930's he had already begun extensive field studies of the physical anthropology of central Sweden. In the course of this broad-scale field study, Professor Lundman personally took anthropometric measurements of more than 15,000 persons. He summed up his findings of this study in a dissertation on the physical anthropology of the Swedish province of Dalecarlia. After a delay caused by World War II, Dr. Lundman was given a Ph.D. by the University of Uppsala for this work.
Dr. Lundman, who is associated with various scientific and anthropological societies in Sweden, is an honorary member of such groups in Germany, Italy, and the United States. He is the author of more than 150 articles and monographs dealing with physical and cultural anthropology, ethnology, sociology, eugenics, zoology, botany, geography, ethics and church history. He is also the author of a number of books, including the following:
