21. Resurrectionist

In the 18th century and in the 19th century, too, all med students were given bodies to practice, and that’s how the job as a resurrectionist was born. Their main task was to dig up corpses and sell them to local medical schools.

22. Phrenologist

Phrenology is basically a pseudoscience involving the measurement of bumps on the human skull in order to predict mental traits. Back then, phrenologists were the only ones who could have said if a person is indeed intelligent or not based on the shape of his/her head. Of course, by 1967, this strange and foolish practice got forgotten.
