BRITISH EUGENICS
LIST OF MEMBERS


Source of members names: From 1930 until 1990 members' names were published in the Society journal as they joined or became fellows. These sources are shown as a journal abbreviation followed by the year in which the person entered the Society, e.g., ER 1942. (ER = Eugenics Review; Bulletin of the Eugenics Society; B&S; = Biology and Society). The Eugenics Review at times listed all the officers and members of the council. These sources are also shown as a journal abbreviation followed by a date. The Society is a corporation and its directors are listed in its annual reports deposited in Company House (CH). In 1937 the Society published a list of members in its Annual Report (ESAR 1937). In 1957 the Society published a list of members in the Eugenics Review (ER 1957). A list of members compiled in 1977 was deposited in the Welcome Archives (1977 list). Deaths of members were sometimes noted in obituaries in the Society journals (Obit + journal abbreviation and date). Other sources are as specified.

Quotes:
Invaluable information on millions of deaths, especially in ethnic upper classes:
"Tietze has once again provided an invaluable factbook on induced abortion ... Estimates range from 30 to 55 million per year ... rates tended to increase with average income for each ethnic group ... In India in the early seventies about half the women having an abortion were also sterilised ... Reports of adverse side effects ... are controversial" Review by B. Thompson of Induced Abortion. by C. Tietze q.v. in Bulletin of the Eugenic Society, June 1980

DNA fingerprinting:
"Alec Jeffreys of Leicester University who was one of the originators of DNA fingerprinting..." from "DNA fingerprints or fools rush in..." in Galton Newsletter, Sept. 1991 p. 3 by Timson; articles Timson cites to prove worth of SLP and MLP fingerprinting: Jeffreys et al, American Journal of Human Genetics v. 48, p. 824, 1991; Budowle et al, American Journal Human Genetics v. 48, p. 841 1991; These articles make it plain that DNA fingerprinting is more like identikit than like a fingerprint; see also the controversy in Science, Dec. 1991 involving R.C. Lewontin (AES), and Kenneth Kidd (AES); (see Kallmann q.v. for origin of American Journal of Human Genetics) This controversy hovered in the background of the O. J. Simpson trial.

(from Dictionary of National Biography); worked in County Fire Insurance Company in Thirties; wrote history of Health Ministry during World War II (a history which did not emphasize the significance of the decline in the incidence of spina bifida during World War II with the result that hundreds of thousands of preventable cases have occurred since then); developed "critical social accounting"

Background:
History and Spina Bifida
Anencephaly and spina bifida declined in England during World War II due to better nutrition for pregnant mothers either caused by equitable rationing or by healthier eating patterns. "Secular Changes in the Incidence of Malformations of the Central Nervous System" Brit. J. of Social Medicine 1951, 5, p. 254. Titmuss wrote the history of medicine from the point of view of the Dept. of Health during World War II. No attention was paid in this history to this fact about spina bifida. As a result spina bifida continues to be prevalent in Ireland and China and is frequently cited as a reason for introducing abortion and eugenic laws in those places. (see Norman Nevin q.v)
Empire and Population:
"Can we maintain our present attitudes in India when we decline in numbers and increase in age concurrently?" from Parent's Revolt. by R. and K. Titmuss quoted in Founders of the Welfare State. 1984, p. 115

Antidemocratic:
"What is wanted is not equality of opportunity, but education adapted to individual potentiality; and if the time and money now spent in the fruitless attempt to make silk purses out of sows' ears were devoted to the higher education of children of good natural capacity, it would contribute enormously to national efficiency." A.F. Tredgold quoted by Margaret Sanger, The Pivot of Civilization., p. 92 (note resemblance to theories of Arthur Jensen)
Degenerates a Social Threat:
"... in the animal world or in a primitive state of human society these degenerate members would very soon be extinguished ... our modern legislation ... is actually tending to breed degenerates", from "The FeebleMinded, A Social Danger", A.F. Tredgold, ER 1909, p. 101

Rehabilitation of Cyril Burt q.v.:"In the case of Cyril Burt's work, however, the judgement ... (on his work by his fellow scientists, ed. note) ... appears not yet to be definitive ... Burt's ideas ...were fundamental to the formulation of the 1944 Education Act and the establishment of selective secondary education based on the testing of intelligence as a constitutional characteristic ... By the mid-1970's, ... times had changed ... Edward Wilson was criticised ... for asserting that human behaviour had an evolutionary and therefore a genetic basis, Jensen and Eysenck were attacked for what was perceived as racism and elitism, and Burt was accused of fraud ... It is not difficult to imply that social convictions mould a researcher worker's output rather than follow it. Oliver Gillie ... notes carefully that Burt 'knew ... Francis Galton q.v., ... Burt is also charged with 'coming under the influence of Sir Ronald Fisher' and of basing calculations of heritability on Fisher's methods. Gillie draws here on work by Bernard Norton on Fisher and Burt's involvement with the early eugenic movement, ..." all quotes on Burt from "Science and Social Commitment" by Clive Turner, Galton Institute Newsletter Sept. 1991 p. 4-5
Background:
Burt, Fisher and Turner were in the Eugenics Society in 1957 so it is somewhat disingenuous to speak of the "early eugenic movement" as if the Thirties were the period of Burt's involvement. Furthermore, Von Verschuer, Josef Mengele's co-researcher at Auschwitz, was in the American Eugenics Society in 1956. So eugenics had not progressed very far from the Thirties.

Background:
After World War I the Eugenic Society "... finances depended largely on an annual gift from a friend of (Leonard Darwin) ... Mr. (Henry) Twitchin ... Mr. Twitchin's legacy ... suddenly made us rich." (ER 1942-43 p. 109, 112.) Details on this legacy are published in the Eugenics Review in the years 1939, 1940 as the list of blue chip stocks from which Society income is derived.
Note the heavy investment all over the world in railroads, tea plantations, paper mills and other colonial developments. These developments displaced native agriculture and native peoples leaving them hungry. South Africa under apartheid was the most recent egregious example of this action; but it was not the only one. The eugenicists as UN population controllers have categorized this hunger as a consequence of overpopulation and offered a Pill to the starving. "They have no bread? Why do they not take the Pill?" The sale of this Pill also directly benefitted the Eugenic Society. (see Marie Stopes entry)
