The discovery in the Smith College Archives of a reference to Whitnall's little-known “malar tubercle” points up the fact that H. H. Wilder used this point of attachment of the lateral palpebral ligament in positioning the lateral canthus of the eye in his face reconstructions on the skull. The present paper offers an equally sure means of positioning the medial canthus.
