Combe George

Combe, George (1788-1858), brother of the above-mentioned Dr. Combe, was born at Edinburgh, and educated at the High School and University there. He was writer to the Signet from 1812 to 1837, when he devoted himself to phrenology and education. He attended the lectures of Spurzheim, and after being a thorough disbeliever in his principles, became an ardent disciple, and made the condition of man in relation to external objects a special study. He travelled and lectured and established schools for carrying out his ideas. Besides his Essays on Phrenology and his Elements of Phrenology, he wrote upon social subjects.
