Jen's Thought's on Decomposing Bodies:

Thinking about Decomposing Bodies, I came across many Bertillion Card Forms that were missing their left corner.  The loss of these corners meant that the card type could not be properly determined.  Thus the card type was catalogued by making my best guess between "1900s Card with 'Stoop'" and "1900s Card with 'Eng Ht.'" The frequency of cards with missing left corners means that a substantial number of cards are potentially being catalogued incorrectly due to insufficient information.  Therefore, I suggest the addtion of a fifth Bertillion Card Form type of "unknown 1900s" that catalogues accurately the fact that the card is damaged and the type of card unreadable.  I believe this would lead to a more accurate cataloguing process.
