The AES was founded in 1923. Mjoen, one of the leading eugenicists in Norway, helped found the International Federation of Eugenics Organizations (IFEO) in 1912. Mjoen advocated theories of Nordic superiority, published in his journal 'Den Nordiske Race' (The Nordic Race). Photograph from the American Eugenics Society.
