Includes bibliographical references and index
These are the proceedings of a conference devoted to the history and achievements of the Galton Institute, founded in 1907 as the Eugenics Education Society. The first three papers examine the development of the eugenics movement in the United Kingdom and its efforts to apply scientific ideas to the problems of society. Particular attention is given to the relationship between the eugenics and the birth control movements. The remainder of the papers examine the role of eugenics in the development of several disciplines, including demography, human genetics, psychometrics, and biometry. There are also two papers on eugenics in France and Scandinavia, and in the United States.
