    East Baltics: A Composite Racial Type

    The term East Baltic is properly applicable to a racial type of composite nature, found chiefly in northeastern Germany, Poland, the Baltic States, and Finland, although it also occurs sporadically in Sweden and elsewhere. It is a partially reduced Borreby derivative, with Ladogan and Nordic admixture.

    FIG. 1 (2 views, Wide World photos). Field Marshal von Hindenburg, a native of East Prussia, and a classic example of the East Baltic racial type, to which many Prus- sians of the land-owning Junker class belong.

    FIG. 2 (1 view, Pix Publications, Inc.). Field Marshal Werner von Blomberg, a suc- of von Hindenburg, derived from the same ethnic source and a member of the same racial category.

    FIG. 3 (3 views). A Pole from Grodno. This individual approaches Borreby dimen- sions in the cranial vault.

    FIG. 4 (3 views). A Lithuanian from the region of Vilna; who shows the Ladogan affiliation of this type clearly.

    FIG. 5 (3 views). A Finn from Tampere, Tavastehus. This man seems to show more evidence of Nordic influence than the others. As these pictures show, the East Baltic is not a stable or a basic racial type, but a variable blend.
