Abstract

Hamilton (1951), in a frontier work, extensively studied the developing patterns of scalp hair in men and women from the prenatal period through the tenth decade. He divided the balding patterns into eight types with three sub-divisions, then compared the incidence of baldness between Caucasian and Chinese.
