dc.description.abstractBy using a new source of 19th century Texas state prison records, the present study contraststhe biological living conditions of comparable blacks and whites in the American Southbetween the Civil War and Reconstruction. White stature exceeded black stature. Between1850 and 1870, black sub-adult stature declined by over one centimeter. Postbellum sub-adultwhite stature declined by over one and a half centimeters and never recovered over the sameperiod. The secular trend for adult blacks improved by two and one half centimeters betweenthe 1850s but declined after the Civil War.en_US
