From THE RACIAL CHARACTERS OF THE SWEDISH NATION. Lundborg.

The material has been divided into the six following groups.

1) Persons having a light eye colour and light head hair, with a stature over 168 cm. and a cephalic index under 78, have been designated purer Nordid type.

2) Those having a light eye colour and light head hair, with a stature under 173 and cephalic index between 80 and 85, have been designated purer East Baltic type.

3) The remaining persons with a light eye colour and light head hair have been designated light mixed types. The Nordic racial factor is undoubtedly very strong in these persons also.

4) Those having a light eye colour and brown head hair, and those having a dark eye colour and light head hair, have been designated medium dark types. The latter, like the light eyes types, are sure to have a rather strong admixture of Nordic race.

5) Those having a dark eye colour and brown head hair, or a light eye colour and dark head hair, have been designtated dark mixed types.

6) Those having both a dark eye colour and dark head hair have been designated dark types.
