Abstract:

Collection contains Harry H. Laughlin's professional files from the Eugenics Record Office, 1910-1939. These files contain: institutional correspondence, memoranda, and reports; general correspondence; correspondence and printed materials related to the eugenical organizations to which Laughlin belonged; working manuscripts; notes; some photographs; and miscellaneous collected printed materials. The collection reflects Laughlin's interests in the identification of the "socially inadequate," genetically caused diseases, eugenical sterilization, immigration restriction, and the establishment of a common world government. Laughlin was also involved in thoroughbred horse breeding studies as a practical application of genetics. Correspondents include the Carnegie Institue of Washington, Charles B. Davenport, Madison Grant, Walter J. Salmon, James G. Eddy, Charles M. Goethe, Wickliffe Draper, Irving Fisher, Frederick Osborne, Harry Olson, W.A. Plecker.
