Founders of Forensic Science

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Founders of Forensic Science

Lattes was an Italian scientist who devised a way to group bloodstains as A, AB, B, or O.

Doyle is known for creating Sherlock Holmes, who is known for using chemistry, bloodstains and fingerprints to catch offenders. In some ways, the modern detective can be seen as an extension of Conan Doyle’s literary works.

Locard set up the first forensic lab in Lyons, France in 1910. He also was the founder and director of the Institute of Criminalistics at the University of Lyons.

Orfila is known as the Father of Forensic Toxicology. His research on poisons helped propel chemistry, biology and other sciences in a positive direction.

Galton was a British scientist that published the book Finger Prints in 1892, which helped to establish the idea that all fingerprints are unique.
