A 'Ripper' handwriting analysis

New Criminologist original article submission circa 1968

Professor F. E. Camps' article More About `Jack the Ripper' in the February issue promoted considerable discussion by correspondence the most interesting of which was a Canadian graphologist's suggestion of an analysis of the letter specimens in Professor Camps' article.

MANY doubt that the so-called Jack the Ripper atrocities were committed by one person.

To a graphologist, it appears most unlikely that all the Jack the Ripper letters were written by the same hand.

As a trained handwriting analyst, I was struck by the essential dissimilarities in the two specimens reproduced in the February issue of The Criminologist.

In my opinion, they are the efforts of two persons having similar perversions but important personality differences.

Both specimens reveal a propensity to cruelly perverted sexuality to a degree that even the most casual amateur graphologist could hardly mistake.

Do you have a theory on who

Jack the Ripper really was?
