Description:

DNAi location: Chronicle>Trial of Carrie Buck>players Joseph DeJarnette was an early advocate of sterilization, and was proud to call himself "Sterilization DeJarnette." He testified in the trial of Carrie Buck, finding that Carrie was feebleminded and a moral degenerate, and somewhat appropriately fitted for sterilization under the Virginia law. DeJarnette was later well known for his advocacy in favor of sterilization in Europe, particularly his challenge to Virginians to not fall behind the examples set by the Nazis and Hitler.
