Léon Gambetta, an eminent French statesman and founder of the French Republic. When he died from a pistol wound, in 1882
,at 44 years of age, his brain was found to weigh 40.9 ounces, whereas boys of 7 to 14 years of age average a fraction less than 46 ounces.
Dr. Flint, in his “Physiology,” gives the average male brain in New York at a little over 50 ounces. Here we find one of the most powerful of the statesmen of his time with a receding forehead and exceedingly small brain.
