Abstract: The scope of this present investigation involves determination of the blood groups of 165 individual skeletons from the Marianas and Hawaiian collections of the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, by using Candela's modification of the agglutination test (1939). It Is a complicated variation of the routine "agglutination” test used in
grouping blood cells of living people. Also examines attempts to devise a new and simpler technique, based upon the principle of the "precipitation" test, well known to serologists, which has not been applied successfully as yet in the determination of blood groups of bones.
