I'm forwarding this for a colleague to whom I will pass any inquiries.

- From Tim Sullivan, Anthropology Dept, 380 MFAC, SUNYAB, Amherst,

There are thousands of radiographs and associated information available
in two data sets presently located at the National Institute of Aging
in Baltimore. If no interest is shown in using this info soon, they
will be moved into what may prove to be a rather inaccessible storage
facility. One set is of the children of the survivors of the Hiroshima
Nagasaki bomb blasts. Facial, hand, and other x-rays include. The
second set is from the INCAP x-ray surveys taken in the 1960's in
Central America, basically national level anthropometric material,
especially hands, but also other material too.

For more info on the material, or ways of accessing it, reply to me
pronto. I will forward all inquiries to Tim. Or contact him direct
by phone, mail, or fax.
