    Abstract

    If Byrne's bones had been buried after Cushing's study, 4 Byrne's DNA would never have recently been analysed. 5 Moreover, Byrne's relatives support continued display of his skeleton. Having visited the Hunterian Museum we cannot think of a more dignified repository for this important skeleton, or greater respect than can come from serving humankind by aiding advances in medical science.
