To the Editors:
I enjoyed the article on Kazan by Paulina Hurwitz in the September-October issue of Russian Life. She provided a bit of information on the phenotype of the Tatars of Kazan (darker than the Slavs) on page 28, but I wished she had described their physical appearance in a little more detail.
I would like to know whether the Tatars of the Kazan area are generally of European appearance, or Middle Eastern appearance, or of somewhat Mongoloid Asian appearance. I have understood that Tatars are not usually European in facial appearance.
