Ford Collection, UM Museum of Anthropology

The Ford Collection contains human skulls collected by Dr. Corydon La Ford, M.D., during his time as professor of Anatomy at the University of Michigan Medical School between 1854 and 1890. The collection was transferred to the Museum of Anthropology in 1996 and the Museum has loaned much of it (excluding the Native American crania that fall under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) regulations) to the UM Dept. of Anthropology for use in teaching. No Native American skulls are illustrated in this project.
