Eugenics data collection. Individual analysis card from the examinations and surveys carried out as part of the Fitter Families contest. This contest, founded in 1920 and later run by the American Eugenics Society (AES), involved offering free medical examinations to find the 'fittest' family according to eugenics criteria. Eugenics is the controversial practice of selectively improving the genetics of human populations. Eugenicists of this period focused on race, physical health, and mental ability. This record, dating from 1922, is from the Eugenics Record Office (ERO), Cold Spring Harbor, New York, USA. The ERO was founded in 1910.
