The Sterilization States

This is an exhibit from The Second International Exhibition of Eugenics held September 22 to October 22, 1921, it shows all the states that had instituted manadtory sterilization legislation.

A really great resource for eugenics information is the eugenics archive. The DNA Chronicle is another interesting website with images, text, and video clips relating to past failures in the eugenics movements. It is important that we are aware of this part of human history and how it relates to present day science.
