Eugenics, follow-up

A friend who works for American Heritage magazine writes in response to my earlier post to say that a recent AH article, “Race Cleansing in America,” provides a good history of the eugenics movement.

Here’s the pull quote she forwarded: “A nationwide gene-purity movement promoted methods that eventually were adopted by the Third Reich. And everyone from John D. Rockefeller to W. E. B. Du Bois supported it.” (Thanks Andrea.)
