This particular form is for boys, but there is planned a similar set of charts for girls. Either set will be sent to you upon request provided the person who asks for them will agree to make and enter the measurements monthly for the period of years indicated, and will agree also to send to the Eugenics Record Office, annually, a report of measurements on properly prepared post cards (one child, one report-postcard per year) which the office will provide at opportune times. These records are prepared for children and adolescents from the ages of three to twenty years. Records may be started most profitably at ages between three and five years, and most conveniently on a birthday; subsequent measurements are to be made and recorded on the monthly birthday of each succeeding month, i.e., twelve times per year; or, if that is not feasible, at other frequent and regular intervals. Person who is responsible for maintaining this record: Name: [dotted line] Address: [dotted line] (Kindly advise the Eugenics Record Office of any change) Relation to person being measured: [dotted line] {Father, mother, teacher, or the like) ERO.467 [end]
