"This volume provides abundance evidence that the Pioneer Fund has indeed been the primary source for scientific racism. Revealing a lengthy history of concerted and clandestine activities and interests, The Funding of Scientific Racism examines for the first time archival correspondence that incriminates the fund's major players, including Draper, the recently deceased president Harry F. Weyher, and others."--BOOK JACKET." ;
