    Abstract

    The collecting of human remains for study in museums and medical schools has been a vital scientific endeavor for many years. In some cases, such as the fetal and neonatal skeletons discussed, surreptitious dealings were involved. However, one must consider the attitudes that prevailed at the time, the high rate of fetal and infant mortality, and the blossoming role of museums as repositories of knowledge.
