In addition to the six papers presented in full in Physical Anthropology of the American Indian (ed. W. S.

Snow, “The Sequence of Physical Types in North America“; and T. D. McCown, “The sequence of physical types in California.” Final discussion, of methods and theoretical considerations, was presided over by Stewart as moderator.
