Fingerprints of S S Buckman

Fingerprints of S S Buckman
BGS image ID: P824222
These are the fingerprints of Sidney Savory Buckman (1860-1929). They were found in an envelope marked "Finger Prints of Family" which also contained the fingerprints of his wife and children. It is possible that he was trying to see if people who were related had similar fingerprints.

Buckman was a geologist who also had a career as a novelist, commercial writer and fossil dealer to fund his geological work. He had an interest in many things including language and social and political reform.
