The gang over here at OldMagazineArticles.com have always felt the phrenology is simply an obsolete amalgamation of primitive neuroanatomy, but the folks back in the 19th Century would have thought that we were all wet; what we call quackery they called science - and they believed that phrenology was the real deal. When this article was published, however, phrenologists were pretty much on their way out - but before they left the stage completely, one of them made a "phrenograph" of Susan B. Anthony (1820 - 1906). Although the "phrenograph" was terribly flattering, the journalist saw fit to kick her in the teeth by including the rants of one of contemporaries:

"Susan B. Anthony has never won a victory for woman-suffrage. At her instance, not a single law was has ever been adopted, and every amendment proposed to every state Constitution in which she has assumed the leadership has been overwhelmingly defeated... She has tabooed the only worthy soldiers, those who who never falter in the hour of desperate struggle."
