According to Explorations and Field Work of the Smithsonian Institution in 1923 (Pub. 2752), Truman Michelson travelled to St. John's in Newfoundland and Labrador in June 1923 where he made cranial measurements of four Beothuk skulls. These undated notes, most likely from that work, consist of Michelson's measurements of the skulls of a Beothuk child, two adult males, and an adult female.
