Question about HTTP/1.1 and proxy servers

As I don't seem to get any answer to my question within the usenet, you
be able to help me here.

Is there any way, on the server side, to identify if a request
originated by an http
client has passed through a proxy ? Is there anything that a proxy
changes within
the HTTP request/header before forwarding it that could be used ?

Many thx in advance
