Caption: Eugenics caricature. Cover illustration for Puck magazine caricaturing the subject of eugenics, originally developed by Francis Galton in the 1880s. Eugenics is the genetic practice of selecting humans to encourage certain traits and discourage other traits. Titled 'Eugenics makes the world go round', a doctor spins the Earth with his feet, with a weeping putto at left with broken bowstring and arrows. The first International Eugenics Conference had taken place the previous year (1912) in London, and eugenics peaked in popularity around this time. Artwork by Louis M. Glackens (1866-1933), published in New York on 18 June 1913 as the cover of issue number 1894, volume 73
