Corruccini spent considerable effort determining the signiﬁcance of the different types of data in population studies and how each data type affected the expression of population differences (Corruccini, 1974). Population genetic theory also gained visibility within biological distance studies at this time. Harpending and Jenkins (1973) focused on a method to measure population divergence using genetic frequencies that incorporated the effects of evolution on trait frequencies, the R matrix, and the inbreeding coefﬁcient.

Washburn effectively laid the foundation for future studies that linked developmental and historical aspects of human variation and human evolution. in the genetic studies of mice in the 1950 and 1960s” (Saunders and Rainey, 2008, p. 542) using quasi-continuous (cranial nonmetric) traits. This inﬂuence can be seen in the work of Grünberg (1952, 1955, 1963), who explored genetic variants among mice, which would eventually lead to studies of human samples. For example, Laughlin and Jorgenson (1956) examined frequency distributions of eight cranial nonmetric traits to elucidate regional variation in a sample of Eskimo crania from Greenland.
