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.

Media Icon's Life, Loves and Death:
The "front" woman for the men of the Eugenic Society, Sanger led a miserable life. Slee was an old man when she married him. The sexuality of Havelock Ellis, her supposed lover, was based on drinking urine. After his death letters were published which indicated he did not love Margaret Sanger and she saw these letters. She was useful to the eugenic societies as a sort of icon. She had money and young male 'lovers' and Demerol till she died. Is she an example to women?

Good Breeding -
"More children from the fit, less from the unfit - that is the chief aim of birth control" (Birth Control Review, May 1919, Vol. III, no. 5)
- "Birth Control: to create a race of thoroughbreds", (Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921, Vol. 5, no.11)
- from a review by B. Dunlop q.v. of My Fight for Birth Control. by Margaret Sanger:
"... wherever contraception is spreading the only hope for eugenics is to make abortion and voluntary sterilisation freely available to ... (the poorest classes)" (ER April 1932, p. 38)
Racism:
"Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, (free medical care for the poor) tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.", The Pivot of Civilization., p. 177
Antidemocratic:
"The Machine age very shortly and decisively exploded the simple belief that 'all men are born free and equal' ", The Pivot of Civilization.
Catholic Church as enemy:
"The Catholic Church has sown, cultivated and reaped a crop of bodily and mental diseases and developed a society congenitally and almost hopelessly unbalanced." from The Pivot of Civilization. quoted in Margaret Sanger. by Elsah Droghin, p. 57
Poor = Unfit:
"Everywhere we see poverty and large families going hand in hand. Those least fit to carry on the race are increasing most rapidly ... Funds that should be used to raise the standard of our civilization are diverted to maintenance of those who should never have been born.", from The Pivot of Civilization.

Source: Obit ER 1945, p. 72
Background:
"When students of other sciences ask us what is now currently believed about the origin of species we have no clear answer to give ... The conclusion in which we were brought up, that species are a product of summation of variations, ignored the chief aspect of species, that the product of their crosses is frequently sterile in great or less degree. Huxley very early in the debate pointed out this grave defect in the evidence, but before breeding researches had been made on a large scale no one felt the objection to be serious. Extended work might be trusted to supply the deficiency. It has not done so, and the significance of the negative evidence can no longer be denied." William Bateson in Nature Ap. 29, 1922, quoted in The Evolution Hoax Exposed., A. N. Field

"There are fewer poor quality diets in Social Classes I, II, III than in IV and V ... there is a definite social gradient for height ... there is a negative correlation between intelligence and the size of family ... in a series of cases where pregnancy was terminated ... 42 per cent were small ... from a eugenic point of view ... children of such parents are less likely than average to be of high intelligence ... the poor environment makes it unlikely that they will be able to make full use of their limited abilities" (from "Intelligence and Child Bearing", Dugald Baird q.v., ER 1953; see also Barbara Thompson q.v.)

Nazi Medicine:
"he joined the staff at Maudsley Hospital, where his thinking matured with exposure especially to the influence of the German School.", Obit Sept. 1983, Bulletin of the Eugenic Society by D.F. Roberts. The "German School" is Rudin of Munich, "meritorious pioneer of the racial laws of the Third Reich"
Goals:
"As to the direction in which man might conceivably learn to influence his own evolution, it has been emphasized by some of our finest scholars that selection can be employed with foresight. In their opinion, with deleterious effects of most mutant genes 'diluted and postponed by an improved environment rather than obliterated,' satisfactory population policies call for birth selection, not death selection ... for criteria of health, intelligence or happiness, not just survival and fertility." quotation from Expanding Goals in Psychiatry. (ed.) F.J. Kallman, p. 251. In the bolded section, F.J. Kallmann is directly and indirectly quoting his fellow Munich student, Eliot Slater. Quotation is from "Galton's Heritage", ER 52: 91, 1960
The Nazi Connection:
Dr. Ernst Rudin taught Kallmann and Slater; they cannot be understood apart from him.
Dr. Ernst Rudin:
Dr. Ernst Rudin was a founder/member of the German Eugenics Society (Society for Racial Hygiene (Eugenics); Professor of Psychiatry, Munich University; Curator, Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity Teaching and Eugenics; Director: The Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Genealogy and Demography, Research Institute for Psychiatry. Rudin taught Josef Mengele of Auschwitz, F.J. Kallman of the American Society of Human Genetics q.v. and Slater of the British Journal of Psychiatry q.v.; his daughter, Edith Zerbin Rudin, was a member of the American Eugenics Society (Society for the Study of Social Biology) in 1974; Slater transmitted Rudin's ideas via his daughter by publishing her work and ideas
Nazi Connection:
Rudin was chief architect of Law for the Prevention of Hereditary Disease in Posterity passed July 1933 four months after Hitler came to power; claimed some responsibility for Nuremburg laws passed in 1935, "The Reich Law of Citizenship", which created two classes - subjects and citizens and "For the Protection of German Blood and German Honour" which made sex between Jews and Aryans a crime (Men Behind Hitler, p. 28-33)
Honors from Hitler for Rudin:
"... so just recently he [Rudin] received the Goethe Medal for Art and Science from the Fuhrer 'in recognition of his achievements in the development of German Racial Hygiene'. The Reichminister of the Interior, Dr. Frick, sent him the following telegram: 'To the indefatigable champion of racial hygiene and meritorious pioneer of the racial hygienic measures of the Third Reich I send my sincerest congratulations on his 65th birthday. May you be granted many more years to continue your research for the welfare of mankind. ( Men Behind Hitler, p. 18-19)
Planned Parenthood Connection:
Margaret Sanger's Birth Control Review published "Eugenic Sterilization: An Urgent Need" 1933 by Rudin; also "Selective Sterilisation" 1933 by Leon Whitney which defended the Nazi programs based on Rudin's laws. (Grand Illusions., p. 92)
Rockefeller Connection:
Rockefeller gave money for "Kaiser Wilhelm Institute" and subsidized Rudin (Men Behind Hitler., p. 76, Rockefeller Foundation Annual Reports 1928 1939); after WWII the Kaiser Wilhelm Institutes were all renamed "Max Planck" Institutes
Inferior Races:
"We should act without delay. Not only is it our task to prevent the multiplication of bad stocks; it is also to preserve the well endowed stocks and to increase the birth rate of the sound average population." (from Birth Control Review, "Eugenic Sterilization: an urgent need", Ernst Rudin, April, 1933, Vol. 17, no. 4)
Hitler on Poland and Byelorussia:
Soft Genocide
"In view of the large families of the native populations, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. Active trade in contraceptives ought to be actually encouraged in the Eastern territories, as we could not possibly have the slightest interest in increasing the non-German population." (quoted in Of Pure Blood. 1975, Bonn from Hitler's Tischgesprache im fuhrerhauptquartier)
