ABSTRACT

The measurements upon which this paper is based were made by the Child Study Department of the Chicago Public Schools, under my direction as Chairman of the Department. The gentlemen composing this department are Mr. F. W. Smedley, Director, and Messrs. C. C. Krauskopf, Daniel P. McMillan, and C. Victor Campbell, assistants. These gentlemen are all thoroughly equipped for the work, and large experience in making measurements has made them exceptionally accurate, and this skill on the part of the observers gives great weight to the observations. I wish to acknowledge particularly my indebtedness to Mr. Smedley, who jointly with me has discussed every phase of the work done by the Department, and every detail of its official publications.

The tables are based upon the measurements of 6259 children, 2788 boys and 3471 girls. Seven measurements were made of each child, except that no ergographic work was done with children
