Description:

DNAi location: Chronicle>Trial of Carrie Buck>playersHarry Laughlin was the superintendent of the Eugenics Record Office in New York, and had written a model sterilization law in 1914, portions of which were borrowed by Virginians to use in their own 1924 law. Laughlin presented a deposition to the court in the case of Buck vs. Bell. And his written comments included conclusions that Carrie Buck was socially inadequate and that she was a member of a class of worthless poor white trash of the south.
