    Rumor has it he had Negro blood. His visage would seem to bear this out. On a hunting trip, Ty Cobb refused to sleep near Ruth, saying "I have never slept under the same roof with a ni**er, and I'm not going to start here in my own native state of Georgia" or something to that effect (the exact quote varies depending on the source).

    Ruth is an odd one indeed and I've certainly heard the speculations about partial Negroid ancestry. I've actually never come across any potential 'documentation'--meaning a paper trail leading to ancetors of his. Most of the speculation I believe is derived from his appearance/phenotype.

    What are his most Negroid features? I would say first and foremost, his nose and secondly, his lips--both of which are fleshier than usually seen on a pure Caucasoid. However, he does not look like a Mulatto or Quadroon--who seem to usually show a Caucasoid craniofacial structure with darker skin, eyes, hair and the wooly Negroid hair--such as NBAer Rick Fox. Ruth on the other hand was very brachycephalic and round of face. It's difficult to say. He may just be a very archaic Alpine...

    I've attached some pics and the one where he is hugging the rather Nordid Lou Gehrig is telling to me. In this shot, he looks like a Europid UP and shows no Negroid prognathism at all....
