Book Discussion: Breeding Better Vermonters: The Eugenics Project in the Green Mountain State by Nancy Gallagher

January 18
10:30 am


Rochester Public Library

Part of the series Outsiders: Those Who Fell Outside the Cultural Norm. Breeding Better Vermonters examines social, ethnic, and religious tensions and reveals how population studies, theories of human heredity, and a rhetoric of altruism became subtle, yet powerful tools of social control and exclusion in a state whose motto was “freedom and unity.”
