DNAi location: Chronicle>Threat of the Unfit>epilogue Many prominent Americans saw eugenics as a progressive solution to social problems – including Theodore Roosevelt, Alexander Graham Bell, Luther Burbank (the California seed producer), Henry Fairfield Osborn (president of the American Museum of Natural History), and David Starr Jordan (first president of Stanford University).  Sophisticated geneticists – including Thomas Hunt Morgan, Hermann Muller, and William Ernest Castle – supported eugenics at one time or another, but rejected coercive legislation based on an incomplete knowledge of genes involved in complex behaviors.
