“Jekyll’s finger patterns remain the same when he transforms himself into Hyde!” Henry Faulds

Dr Henry Faulds (1 June 1843 – 19 March 1930) was a Scottish scientist who is noted for the development of fingerprinting.

Faulds was born in the Scottish town of Beith, North Ayrshire into a family of modest means. Aged 13, he was forced to leave school, and went to Glasgow to work as a clerk to help support his family; at 21 he decided to enroll at the Facility of Arts at Glasgow University, where he studied mathematics, logic and the classics. He later studied medicine at Anderson’s College, and graduated with a physician’s license. for more click here
