Abstract

The American Eugenics Society Records is a small, selective collection offering information on various periods of the Society's development, including correspondence, membership records, and formal and informal material on its history. Of particular interest are the records of the Society's numerous committees, including the Executive Education, Population Genetics Research, Legislative, and local and state committees, and documentation of AES educational initiatives at state fairs and eugenic health exhibits and contests, especially the Fitter Family Contests. A scrapbook containing 97 images of Fitter Family and eugenic health exhibits, 1924-1926, provides valuable visual information of AES activities. One series in the collection relates to the numerous Princeton Conferences and to a genealogical survey of the populations of Shutesbury and Leverett, Massachusetts, and there is also material on the Population Council. The collection largely revolves around Frederick Osborn, the moving force in the Society for most of its later history, and it includes approximately 100 papers written or delivered by Osborn concerning eugenics, genetics, or population related topics.

Background note

The Second International Conference on Eugenics, held in New York in 1921, produced one concrete result: the American Eugenics Society. Although the eugenics movement had been gaining strength in the United States for over a decade, there was at the time no formal organization through which to pursue its broader political and educational agenda. As a result, a group of prominent eugenicists founded the Eugenics Committee of the U.S.A., which became the Eugenics Society of America, and finally, in 1925, the American Eugenics Society (AES).

From its base in New Haven, Connecticut, the AES soon attracted the support of nearly every major American eugenicist and for the first decade of its existence, at least, was very successful at promoting eugenic ideas to the American public. More an advocacy group than a scientific organization, the AES promoted its ideals of racial betterment, eugenic health, and genetic education through public lectures, conferences, publications, and exhibits at county and state fairs. Among its most popular promotions were a contest for the best sermon on eugenic theme and a series of "fitter family contests" in which participants' families (divided into small, medium, and large family classes) were ranked based on information provided on the mental, physical, and moral health of family members. The AES also sponsored eugenic health exhibits, featuring such exhibits as Mendel's Theater, a presentation of basic principles of genetics and heredity, and the "flashing light exhibit," a board titled "Some people are born to be a burden to the rest," on which lights were set to blink at periodic intervals representing how often a "defective" was born in the United States (rapid blinking) and how often a "high grade" individual was born (slow blinking).

Beginning in the 1930s, the AES began a slow transformation into a less programmatic organization. This figure most often credited with bringing about this shift was Frederick Osborn, Secretary of the Society from 1928 until 1972. Osborn had a clear impact on the reformulation of AES policies and a greater focus on issues of population control, genetics, and, later, medical genetics.

During the early 1950s, the AES left New Haven for New York City, taking offices and funding from the Population Council. They remained active in promoting scientific investigation into eugenic topics, sponsoring five conferences at Princeton University between 1964 and 1969 on population genetics and demography, and drawing an international cast of scientists. In 1972, the Society was reorganized and rechristened the Society for the Study of Social Biology. Its journal, Eugenics: A Journal of Race Betterment, was renamed Social Biology.

Scope and content

The Records of the American Eugenics Society document the varied promotional activities of the foremost organization for eugenic education and advocacy in the United States during the 1920s and 1930s. Consisting of 9 linear feet of administrative records, correspondence, and formal and informal histories of the Society, the Records span the entire history of the organization from 1921 through 1972, though weighted rather heavily toward the years before the Second World War.

The main body of records includes routine correspondence relating to AES activities and membership, including membership records from the beginning of the Society, correspondence relative to publications and orders for publications.

At the end of the collection is a file of 4x6" index cards representing a eugenic study of Shutesbury, Massachusetts, a town selected for eugenic study due to its visible decline over the previous decades and for the suspected high proportion of "degenerate" residents.

Between 1926 and 1928, the AES held contests for the best sermon preached on the subject of eugenics. In addition to the nine folders labeled AES Sermon Contest, the collection includes 45 submissions filed under the name of the minister, preached before Presbyterian, Methodist, Congregational, Baptist, Unitarian, and Jewish congregations across the country.

A particularly valuable part of the collection is the series of scrapbooks maintained by the Society. The most important of these if the photograph album containing 97 images of Eugenic Health Exhibits at the Kansas Free Fair, 1925, and in fairs in Michigan and Texas, including images of the exhibits themselves (Mendel's Theater, the flashing light exhibit, guinea pigs, and other exhibits), exterior views of the Eugenic Health buildings, images of eugenicists, including Charles B. Davenport, Judge Harry Olson and Professor Henry P. Fairchild, as well as most of the members of the AES Board of Directors over the years, and a number of images of winners of fitter family contests. The other three scrapbooks contain newspaper clippings of articles of eugenic interest, reflecting the AES effort to stay abreast of public perceptions of the field.

Many of the photographs in the scrapbook from Series II. have been digitized. Links to the digital versions of the images are included in the inventory. You may also view a gallery of all images here.

African American History Note

Eugenics was inevitably entangled in many aspects of American social and political life, and particularly in setting and supporting national policy with regard to immigration and the treatment of ethnic and racial minorities. The records in this collection may prove useful to students of African American history in this regard.

Genetics Note

This collection contains materials which relate to the history of genetics.

The AES Papers comprise 50 boxes of correspondence, manuscripts, and other materials, and include an extensive collection of photographs and a file of index cards carrying the information about a eugenic study made in Shutesbury, Massachusetts. A scrapbook entitled 'Samples' includes printed forms used by the Society, and various pamphlets. Three volumes of the Frederick Osborn correspondence are also included. These contain memos, minutes of meetings, correspondence, press clippings, and drafts of articles by Osborn. Five notebooks contain materials relating to the five conferences held at Princeton between 1964 and 1969 on the general subject of "Population Generics and Demography." There is also a loose-leaf notebook titled " AES: Position and Aims of the AES, 1961 Statement." This notebook documents the important changes in the goals and emphases of the Society beginning in the 1930s, involving a shift from hereditarian views toward a more environmentalist view. This shift was one for which Osborn himself took much credit. Garland Allen claims that this collection of the AES Papers reveals that Osborn did not change his fundamental views and was not so fully responsible for the evident decline and moderation of American eugenics during the 1930s. [See Barry Mehler and Garland E. Allen in the Mendel Newsletter 14: 9-15, 1977.]
