Description:

DNAi location: Chronicle>Threat of the Unfit>founders> In 1910, Davenport obtained funds from Mrs. E.H. Harriman to found a Eugenics Record Office (ERO) at Cold Spring Harbor. Davenport recruited as superintendent Harry Laughlin, a Missouri school superintendent with whom he shared an interest in chicken breeding. The ERO became the epicenter of American eugenics – conducting family studies, publishing "how to" books and journals, training case workers, and amassing hundreds of thousands of pedigrees and articles.
