“The Better Sort of People”: Eugenics, Charity, and the Progressive Movement in Vermont
Julia Purdy of Rutland will review the eugenics movement in Vermont, whereby well-meaning reformers tried to “cleanse” the Vermont gene pool. She will tie in the growing state-sponsored tourism industry of the 1920s-30s and progressive support.
