  • Update on skull bones | Beethoven Center | San Jose State University
    the term Beethoven s third home in 2010 or 2011 in an arts grant application to the City of San José long after the fragments had been returned to the Kaufmanns at their request 2 I did not declare the skull fragments to be authentic in 2005 The fragments had been declared to be Beethoven s with greatest probability in 1985 the year the Beethoven Center opened by two Viennese physicians who misdiagnosed the identity of one of the fragments as a parietal rather than a frontal bone No researchers in the field of science or Beethoven studies had questioned their authenticity between 1985 and 2005 so their authenticity had never been called into question and there was no need for me to declare that they were Beethoven s The purpose of the 2005 Beethoven Journal article was to trace the history provenance of the bones through the illustrious Kaufmann family beginning with Romeo Seligmann the first professor of the history of medicine at the University of Vienna through Romeo s son Adalbert Seligmann a famous painter to Adalbert s nephew Thomas Desmines to Paul Kaufmann Danville California 3 The online headline states that the Kaufmann skull fragments are most likely not Beethoven s and that this discovery came from SJSU World renowned osteologist and anthropologist Dr Tim White at the University of California Berkeley studied the fragments on February 17 2012 as part of one of his undergraduate osteology classes at UCB He discovered that the bone fragment that was misidentified in 1985 by two Viennese doctors cannot be from Beethoven because it is a right frontal bone and shows no sign of ever having been sawn through during a craniotomy Beethoven s autopsy report states that the doctor sawed off the top of Beethoven s skull and that he removed the ear bones The saw cut which was described as very rough can be seen in the photograph below Photograph of the reconstruction of Beethoven s skull after the 1863 exhumation showing the rough saw cut through the forehead Dr White based his finding on the following five characteristics of the fragment frontal sinus frontal crest undulation of the endocranial surface coronal suture and temporal line In an email of March 6 2012 to me Dr White wrote For the large piece there is absolutely no competent osteologist who could overcome the unique set of clear anatomical features that place it as right frontal so it is not a matter of if the bone is right frontal In the spring and summer of 2012 Dr White s findings were verified by four other osteologists at the University of California Santa Cruz Dr Alison Galway at the Forensic Osteological Investigations Laboratory San Francisco State University Dr Mark Griffin Bioanthropology Laboratory and CSU Chico Dr P Willey and Dr Eric Bartelink Department of Anthropology The accurate headline for both the web and printed versions should be Dr Tim White and Five Other Osteologists Kaufmann s Skull Fragments Not Beethoven s
