Online Resource: Image Archive on the American Eugenics Movement

Click here to visit an online archive drawing on materials from the Eugenics Record Office at Cold Spring Harbor (the center of American eugenics research from 1910-1940). The archive contains photos, reports, articles, charts, etc. representing the history of the American Eugenics movement.

Although the focus is not on women of color (as is the focus of this site) this online archive nonetheless provides a wealth of valuable historical resources for those interested in the history of coercive sterilization in the US.
