Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Daniel Folkmar (1861-1932) was an anthropologist who served as lieutenant governor with the Philippine Civil Service in 1903-1907. Born in Roxbury, Wisconsin, Folkmar studied at several universities including Harvard, Clark, and the Universities of Chicago, Paris, Berlin, and Brussels. In 1904, with the sponsorship of the Philippine Exposition Board, he published an "Album of Philippine Types: Christians and Moros," a series of physical anthropology photographs made in Bilibid Prison in 1903. In 1908, Folkmar returned to the United States and joined the United States Immigration Commission. There, he collaborated with Jeremiah Jenks on the controversial Dictionary of Races (presented to Congress, 1910).
