Fingerprint Recorder

As a requirement for my Boy Scout merit badge in fingerprinting, I submitted several acceptable (suitably classifiable) sets of prints to the FBI, for which I received a congratulatory letter from J. Edgar Hoover. In 1972, I completed a professional training course in fingerprinting (and other areas of forensics) as shown by the accompanying diploma. I also wrote about the field in my forensic textbook Crime Science (1999).
