A Tribute to the French Forensic Anthropologist Georges Fully (1926–1973)
Five years ago, when Clyde Snow read a paper at the Dallas meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences on the Fully-Pineau method of stature estimation , none of those present was aware that Georges Fully had been dead for eight months. His death was still unknown to those at last year's Academy meeting in St. Louis who heard Gary Tibbetts talk about the application of the Fully-Pineau method of stature estimation to American blacks . I received the sad news of Fully's death in a letter from Professor Georges Olivier of the University of Paris a month after the St. Louis meeting, and did not learn about the tragic circumstances of the event until last June, almost exactly five years after their occurrence. At the time of his death Fully was only 47 years old.
