CABO THE MORE RECENT YEARS Another important turning point in the field can be attributed to Krogman and the publication of his book, The Human Skeleton in Forensic Medicine (1962), after which the field was visible and well presented to a much wider forensic and medicolegal audience. During the 1960s and early 1970s police began to rely more and more on physical anthropologists to provide important information for their investigations regarding skeletal remains.

Healed versus unhealed evidence is clear; a more difficult assessment is to be able to differentiate between fractures to “fresh” bone that contains the organic (collagen) component versus fractures to “dry” bone that has lost significant amounts of collagen. ) and if trauma is applied to bone during that period it will behave as fresh bone and it will be difficult to distinguish perimortem (as associated with the death of the individual) from an event that occurs a period of time after death. If, for example, the bone is dropped or mishandled during recovery, it is difficult to distinguish it from perimortem trauma.

As the Hamann–Todd collection was being amassed, William Terry, of Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, was collecting unclaimed and donated bodies used in anatomy classes at their medical school and other Missouri institutions. In 1941, Mildred Trotter took over from Terry and further increased the size of the collections. In 1967, the 1728 individuals that comprised the collection at that time were sent to the Smithsonian Institution for their continued curation and availability for research (Hunt and Albanese 2005).
