Jaquin, Noel (1894–1974)
Psychologist, diagnostician, and author. Jaquin was born in
London in 1894. After studying with the nineteenth century
palmist, W. G. Behman, he became one of the best-known British
experts in palmistry. He went on to attempt to establish a
scientific rationale for the study of what has so often been regarded
as superstition. He was able to diagnose disease from
markings on the hand and also consulted with police authorities
from Scotland Yard and the British police force on the
palmistry indications of criminals.
