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:
Antidemocratic:
"utter variety and absolute determinism are the twin pegs on which genetics hangs and on which natural selection and evolution proceed. None of these allows for any genuine and abiding equality"
Aryanism:
"... (from) the Megalithic movement...(and from) the Aryan expansion ... there has been one steady stream, which has brought civilization ... (to Europe)..."
Racism:
"... Different social classes have always arisen from different racial origins ... these classes are necessary for the maintenance by breeding of people having capacities for learning, knowing and doing the different things that societies need ... which is the best?... Europeans, Indians or Chinese... (their) skilled classes have taken 300 generations to evolve and it is their absence or rarity which distinguishes the backward from the advanced societies.* (note) Africans in general do worse in the available intelligence tests than Europeans, Chinese or Indians*" (see Cyril Burt q.v., ed. note)
Useless Bread Gobblers:
"... people have different contributions to make to society as individuals and breeders. As individuals the unskilled workers... are not much use to us ... the old settled aristocracies and old unsettled gypsies of Europe were two more such useless groups. At the top and at the bottom of society waste materials accumulate." all quotes from "Race, Class and Culture", the Herbert Spencer Lectures in Biology and the Human Sciences, Oxford 1970

Quotes:
On Compulsion: " ... permanent detention of all confirmed habitual criminals... To save the race compulsion would be necessary in many cases... compulsion should only be employed to enforce imprisonment or segregation; the latter term meaning confinement in comfort. Compulsion is now permitted if applying to criminals, lunatics, and mental defectives; and this principle must be extended to all who, by having offspring, would seriously damage future generations." from "Race Deterioration and Practical Politics", ER, 1925-26
Background
On confinement or sterilisation of the undesirables: Leonard Darwin's niece was Ruth Darwin who was on the Brock Committee (see Brock q.v.), which recommended sterilisation for the undesirables
- (Ruth Darwin; daughter of Horace Darwin (see also Nora Barlow under Sir J.A.N. Barlow q.v.; m. William Rees Thomas 1948; d. 1972)
- (William Rees Thomas; MB 1909; DPM 1914; Dept. Supt., East Sussex Mental Hosp.; Med. Supt., Rampton State Institute; Hon.

The Undesirables:
"I believed less than (Leonard Darwin) did that eugenically desirable qualities were segregated in social classes." from obit of Leonard Darwin by C.P. Blacker q.v. in ER 1943-44, p. 112
'Voluntary' Coercive Consent to Sterilisation:
"The State to be given power to exercise a limited amount of pressure in order to insure that such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld." from An outline of practical eugenic policy. by Leonard Darwin 1926

Quotes:
Abortion Decision Making as a Social Game:
"Ingram concluded 'the concealed function of all abortion games is to abolish or minimize personal responsibility for decisions made for or against termination, whether by patient, doctor or society'. In ethical terms it is hard to decide if this is a serious condemnation of the British Abortion Act, or merely a reflection of those who operate it at all levels." from Abortion. by Diggory et al, 1977, p. 307
Background:
The Selling of the Abortion Act:
"The outside campaigners and advisers had also been crucial. Vera Houghton q.v., Diane Munday and Peter Diggory q.v. being in almost constant attendance in addition to Alastair Service. Their marshalling of opinion polls, professional bodies and MPs and peers was a marvel to behold." David Steel on the Abortion Act 1967 in Against Goliath., p. 54; (see also Dugald Baird q.v.)
Still More Abortion:

Quotes:
Catholic Church: from a review by Drysdale of Roman Catholic Methods of Birth Control. by Marie Stopes.
"(The Catholic Church) ... can therefore only count on the support of the ignorant Irish Catholics, and not even them if birth control information penetrates to them ... Rome has made no concessions ... the State cannot lawfully forbid the marriage of the poor or the physically or mentally defective. Sterilisation is absolutely forbidden, and even segregation for the purpose of preventing marriage ... Rome is fundamentally and unalterably opposed to eugenics." ER Oct. 1933, p. 190
But the anti Rome party of Charles Curran and Co. supported eugenics from the sixties onward. They adopted the situation ethics of Joseph Fletcher of the American Eugenics Society. Then they defined situations in terms of "new conditions". These "new conditions" were defined by demographers, psychologists, sociologists and anthropologists who were members of the American and English eugenics societies or their intellectual disciples. See, for example,Family Planning in an Exploding Population1968 by Fr. John A. O'Brien of Notre Dame; Human Sexuality: New Directions in American Catholic Thought by Kosnick el, Paulist Press, 1977 (e.g. the statement: "We have given particular attention to magisterial statements regarding sexuality; but where new knowledge and insights have rendered traditional under standing and formulations inadequate we have not hesitated to suggest new directions ... not ... dissent but rather development ..." in Human Sexuality: New Directions in American Catholic Thought by Kosnick el, Paulist Press, 1977 p. 240 and p. 129 ff shows the magisterium condemning eugenic sterilization while Kosnick et al clear away this obstacle to the onward march of eugenics.); Bioethics (ed.) Thomas A. Shannon, Paulist Press 1976; the writings of Daniel Callahan in Commonweal
