    I embellish the legend every day: “I’m going to search in the ‘A’ Division Henry collection,” I announce. If I manage a successful “cold search” from finger imprints found at a crime scene, I complete a register in the office and under the heading Method of Identification, I write “A” Henry. I should know better, but habit makes a slave of thoughtlessness. It just is not true: Sir Edward Henry shrewdly gave his name to the classification system worked out by his Indian employees Khan Bahadur Azizul Haque and Rai Bahadur Hem Chandra Bose.

    The first set of fingerprints identified by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police fingerprint bureau was received by that bureau on September 20, 1911, and was taken by Inspector Edward Foster. As in most parts of the world, the Canadian bureau grew daily, and after 9 years of operation, Foster had reportedly received more than 11,000 sets of fingerprints that resulted in more than 1,000 identifications. By comparison, in 1959, 220,000 sets had been received, giving more than 77,000 identifications of previous convictions.

    Identification and Individualization Identification is a process common to all the sciences and, in fact, to everyday life. It may be regarded as a classification scheme, in which items are assigned to categories containing like items, and given names. Different items within a given category all have the same generic name. In this way, mineralogists will identify rocks by categorizing them and naming them. Likewise, botanists identify plants and chemists identify chemical compounds. A latent print examiner will identify fingerprints by comparing ridge characteristics.
