"THE RACIAL COMPOSITION OF THE FINNISH NATION"

By Prof. Kaarlo Hildén, Ph. D.

Lecturer in Anthropology in the University of Helsinki. 1934.


Summary:

"The racial composition of the Finnish people has not as yet been definitely analyzed. However, in the light of present research, the following facts may be said to be established:

1) the general opinion prevailing heretofore that the Finns are of Asiatic origin and Mongoloid race is not based on scientific fact;

2) the East-Baltic* race is the most important component of the Finnish nation, which is blond, relatively tall in stature, and sturdily built;

3) the blond Nordic race forms the second important racial component, which has been established in all sections of the country, but most particularly in the west;

4) the Samian race element, i.e. the Lapp influence, is noticiable in the north and east, without however being determinative to any marked degree;

5) racially the Finns belong to the rest of the European peoples without any sharp demarcations, connected especially to their nearest geographical neighbours".

"East-Baltic race, which therefore may be considered the most important racial component in the Finnish people".

"The blond complexion is an original character of the East-Baltic type".

"The East-Baltic type has nothing in common with the Mongoloid race".

"The Nordic race may be considered the secondary racial component of the Finnish peole".


*The examples that you can see in the text described as "East-Baltic" are closer to the West-Baltid or West-Baltid/Baltid (standard) typology not to the East-Baltid type we use to have in mind. Physical description aswell.

Modern comparision to Hildens thoughts.

East-baltic = baltids,west-baltids,faelids,borrebies and real east-baltids

Nordic = halstatts and east-nordids
