Caption

Eugenics lecture at public fair. Lecture on eugenics being given to the public at the Eugenic and Health Exhibit at the Kansas Free Fair, Kansas, USA. This stall was operated by the American Eugenics Society (AES, founded 1923), with displays on colour inheritance in guinea pigs, reproduction and childcare, and positive and negative eugenics. Eugenics is the controversial practice of selectively improving the genetics of human populations. One display here refers to stemming 'the rising tide of the unfit'. The AES was criticised for their racist assumptions and support of forced sterilizations. This photograph, dating from 1929, is part of the AES collections.
