Die Familie Harriman gehört zur amerikanischen "Quasi-Aristokratie" und ist der Präsidentenfamilie Bush seit Generationen eng verbunden (siehe z.B. http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/spiegelspecialgeschichte/d-61389134.html).
Zu den Kern-Überzeugungen der Eugenik-Lehre gehört die schon von Galton vertretene Annahme, dass die über Generationen vererbte Führungsrolle einiger Familien in Politik und Wirtschaft der USA durch genetisch verankerte herausragende Tüchtigkeit begründet sei - ebenso wie über Generationen weitergegebene Untüchtigkeit und Armut am anderen Ende der "Glockenkurve".

Die Darstellung der “Minderwertigkeit” in Gesichtern, Gestalten und Kleidung auf Schautafeln, die von den Nazis für Propaganda- und Unterrichtszwecke eingesetzt wurden, ist ein Kapitel für sich. Dieses Poster zeigt wohl nicht zufällig einen Mann, der wie ein kommunistischer Arbeiterführer aussieht, als Stammvater einer minderwertigen Sippe.
"Vermehrung der Minderwertigen" ist die Übersetzung des englischsprachigen Schlagworts "Multiplication of the Unfit".
So lautete u.a. der Titel eines Buches von Victoria Woodhull, erschienen 1891

The Red State Blues: Racism At The University Of Texas

One of the bigger news stories last week concerned Stephanie Eisner, a
University of Texas student who drew a racist cartoon that appeared in the print
and online versions of the campus newspaper. The cartoon referred to Trayvon
Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old Florida youth recently shot to death by a
neighborhood watch captain, as a “colored boy.” The cartoon suggested that we
should question the innocence of the African American teenager, who was carrying
nothing more deadly than a bag of Skittles and a can of ice tea.
This represents only the most recent disturbing chapter in the campus’ troubled
racial history. Former slaveowners, Confederate Army veterans, and
segregationist Democrats created the University of Texas in the late 19th
century. In spite of its modern reputation as a liberal haven in an
ultra-conservative state, in the last 20 years “The University” (as its
administrators proudly call it) spawned a new generation of white supremacists
students, even as some faculty members at the institution built their careers
demeaning black and Latino intelligence. [...] To the embarrassment of the
institution, such students and faculty made national headlines from such
The Texas Student Publications Board insisting on printing an advertisement
denying the Holocaust in the Daily Texan newspaper. A tenured Republican law
professor claiming that black and brown students can’t academically compete
with whites.Law students throwing a “Ghetto Fabulous” party in which they wore
blackface and, enacting racial stereotypes, carried 40 oz. cans of malt

Facebook.The president of the Young Republicans resigning after imagining on
social media how nice it would be if Obama were assassinated, only to be
replaced by another student who writes crude rap lyrics about the president
using crack and posts them online.
Stephanie Eisner's cartoon about the Trayvon Martin case was only the most
recent example in on-campus racism at Texas' largest university.
Most in Texas see the university as a “hippie” school (particularly in
comparison with the extremely conservative environment prevailing at rival Texas
A&M.) Austin itself is proudly “weird,” a long time home to the kind of
nonconformists depicted lovingly in the film Slackers.
The university today is top-notch and has employed many star professors who have
used their academic careers to battle racism, such as sociologist Joe R. Feagin
(now at Texas A&M), historians Neil Foley [...] and David Montejano, and journalism
professor Robert Jensen. Yet, over its 129-year history UT has more often been
defined by intolerance and exclusion.
The University of Texas opened as a segregated institution in 1883 and its doors
remained completely closed to African Americans until the United States Supreme
Court ordered the desegregation of the UT law school in the 1950 Sweatt v.
Painter decision. The campus itself is in many ways a shrine to white
A Confederate veteran, George W. Littlefield served as regent of the University
of Texas and paid for the Confederate statuary that still dots the campus today.
He died in 1920. [...] The South Mall ends with the Littlefield Fountain [...] It’s
intended as a war memorial, but Littlefield again wanted to commemorate the
South’s “Lost Cause” and had the fountain inscribed with this message:
“To the men and women of the Confederacy, who fought with valor and suffered
with fortitude that states rights be maintained and who, not dismayed by defeat
nor discouraged by misrule, builded from the ruins of a devastating war a
greater South and to the men and women of the nation who gave of their
possessions and of their lives that free government be made secure to the
peoples of the earth this memorial is dedicated.”
To the rich Southerner, no contradiction existed between a "free government" and
human bondage. The sculptor Coppini begged Littlefield to leave off the tribute
to the slaveowning South. [...] Littlefield, however, believed that the
pro-Confederate message was the most important part of the fountain and it
remains to this day.
For years, UT featured a dormitory named after William Stewart Simkins, a
legendary law professor at the school and, unfortunately, one of the founders of
the Ku Klux Klan in Florida during the Reconstruction Era. [...]
Simkins Hall kept its name until changed by the University regent to Creekside
Residence Hall in 2010. [...]
Racism at UT survived desegregation. The university still does not have a
reputation as a tolerant place in the African American community. Between 1980
and 1990, during the traditional spring social event called "Roundup," on at
least five occasions floats in a parade sponsored by fraternities ridiculed
African Americans and Mexican Americans as well as gay people. [...]
Stephanie Eisner certainly didn’t invent racism and insensitivity at The Daily
Texan. The newspaper stirred national controversy when it tried to run a
full-page advertisement paid for by Bradley Smith, a California Holocaust denier
and white supremacist. The ad presented false claims to argue that the Nazi
slaughter of Jews in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s never happened. [...]
John Murphy, a professor of advertising and public relations and a vocal member
of the newspaper’s governing Texas Student Publications Board [...] declared he
wanted the Daily Texan to “publish divergent and unpopular opinion.” [...]
Anti-Semitism and racism were enabled by University of Texas professors other
than John Murphy. Shortly after the campus' Holocaust Denial controversy, on
December 13, 1994, The Wall Street Journal published a letter signed by several
University of Texas psychology professors defending major contentions made by
Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray’s neo-eugenicist book The Bell Curve:
Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life.
Herrnstein and Murray, whose expertise was not in psychometrics (the supposed
scientific measurement of human intelligence) argued that blacks and Latinos
are, on average, 15 points lower in IQ than whites, that these differences are
inborn, and that they cannot be remediated by programslike Head Statrt that aim
to eliminate the ill effects of poverty, bad nutrition and other problems facing
chronically poor groups.
Setting aside the problems with defining chimeras like general intelligence and
racial categories, Murray and Herrnstein later turned out to have misquoted and
to have misrepresented the results of many of the studies they cited, to have
used sources from long discredited eugenicists in the 1930s, and to have made
major math errors in their calculations. [...]
In the Wall Street Journal letter, several UT psychology professors defended
every major contention in The Bell Curve. Insisting that “[i]ntelligence tests
are not culturally biased against American blacks or other native-born,
English-speaking peoples in the U.S.,” the letter argued that “the bell curve
for whites is centered roughly around IQ 100 [or average as the letter defined
it]; the bell curve for American blacks roughly around 85 [15 points below
average and only 15 points above the threshold of retardation, according to the
signatories]; and those for different subgroups of Hispanics roughly midway
between those for whites and blacks.” [...]
The cream of the University of Texas’ psychology department numbered among the
signatories of the Wall Street Journal letter: professors Lee Willerman, David
B. Cohen, Joseph M. Horn, John C. Loehlin, and Del Theissen. Willerman joined
the American Eugenics Society in 1974. [...]
Willerman helped direct the Texas Adoption Project, which purported to
demonstrate the genetic basis of intelligence and was funded in part by the
eugenicist Pioneer Fund, which on its webpage describes most of its funded
researchers as “race-realists [who] view race as a natural phenomenon to
observe, study, and explain. They believe that human race is a valid biological
concept, similar to sub-species or breeds or strains.” [...]
Millionaire textile heir Wickliffe Draper, an admirer of Nazi Germany,
established The Pioneer Fund in 1937. Draper supported deporting American
blacks to Africa, funded the legal fight against school desegregation, and
dedicated his life to the cause of white “race betterment,” hoping to spur
higher reproduction among the “pure” descendants of English settlers in colonial
New England. The fund has also helped finance books like Eugenics and Race by
Roger Pearson, a work published by one of America’s leading Holocaust deniers,
Willis Carto. Herrnstein and Murray relied on studies funded by the Pioneer Fund
while writing The Bell Curve.
Several of the Texas signatories, such as David Cohen and Del Theissen, were
evolutionary psychologists, influenced by one of the pre-eminent scholars on
personality and intelligence, Richard Lynn, who argued that blacks were less
intelligent as a group that whites. Joseph Horn worked with Willerman and John
C. Loehlin on the Texas Adoption Project.
Former Ku Klux Klan leader, Republican officeholder and white supremacist David
Duke was so excited by the joint letter on The Bell Curve in the Wall Street
Journal that he placed the entire text on his website.
Hitler fans and Klansman: this is the sleazy company that the best and the
brightest in the UT psychology department kept in the 1990s. No one in the
department as a whole was apparently upset by white supremacist letter in the
Wall Street Journal or the crude racist sentiments of such a large percentage
of the department's faculty in the late 20th century.
Daniel Boenvac -- a contemporaneous UT philosophy professor -- also believed in
black and brown intellectual inferiority. He once declared that, "[i]nequality
is inevitable." Bonevac said that no well-intentioned programs could narrow the
achievement gap between black and white scholars. [...]
Prominent academic racists abounded at UT in the 1990s. Since 1966, Lino
Graglia has taught at the same UT law school that served as William Simkins'
homebase. Graglia worked for the Eisenhower Administration Department of
Justice and practiced law in Washington D.C. and New York City before receiving
his UT appointment. Graglia has a unpleasant history of disparaging African
The long-active Republican had been considered in 1986 a finalist by the Reagan
administration for a seat on the Fifth Circuit Court, but his proposed
appointment fizzled as news emerged that he had urged Austin residents to defy
a court-ordered busing plan. His practice of calling blacks students in his
law classes "pickaninnies" also became widely known. [...]
On September 10, 1997, Graglia, declared at a press conference announcing the
establishment of a student group opposed to Affirmative Action that ``Blacks and
Mexican-Americans are not academically competitive with whites in selective
institutions. It is the result primarily of cultural effects. They have a
culture that seems not to encourage achievement. Failure is not looked upon with
The following day, in an interview with the Austin American Statesman, Graglia said
he had urged parents in Austin to resist a busing order because “``I don't know that
it's good for whites to be with the lower classes ... (because) ... they perform
less well in school. They tend towards greater violent behavior.'' [...]
Graglia’s comments inspired a furious response from affirmative action
supporters. "It seems that we're in an era where the Ku Klux Klan does not come
in white robes but in the robes of academe," said state Sen. Gregory Luna, a San
Antonio Democrat who chaired the Senate Hispanic Caucus. Meanwhile, State Rep.
Ron Wilson called for the law professor's resignation, noting that when he
attended UT law school, he became aware of Graglia’s racism and that he and
other African American students “avoided him like the plague.” In addition to
Wilson, state Rep. Hugo Berlanga of Corpus Christi, head of the Mexican-American
Legislative Caucus, called for the tenured professor’s immediate departure.
Three UT students filed charges of racial harassment against Graglia. [...]
The University of Texas then not-so-bravely announced during the winter holiday,
when most students were out of sight and out of mind, that it would not
discipline the professor in response to student complaints. The UT system’s
chief attorney Ray Farabee, suggested that the school’s racial harassment policy
might be ruled unconstitutional as an infringement of First Amendment rights. [...]
Racism is intrinsically a violation of academic ethics. Racist professors -
those who argue that certain ill-defined large categories of humans are
intrinsically deficient intellectually or biologically - have no place at any
college or university and should be fired. Such a stance is entirely consistent
with academic freedom and the concept of tenure because the research of a person
with such strong biases and the student evaluations made by a racist will always
With so many white supremacists on the faculty, it's not wonder that UT produced
so many ill-behaved, bigoted students in the last 20 years. Student racists at
the school continue to congregate on Greek Row and now seem to congregate with
the school's Young Republican Club. [...]
In November 2008, a backup center for the Texas Longhorns, Buck Burnette,
responded to the news that Barack Obama had become the first African American to
ever be elected president, by posting on Fracebook “All the hunters gather up,
we have a N$%&er in the White House.” Unlike faculty members at the campus, the
student faced a serious consequence for his racist idiocy. He got kicked off
the football team. [...]
In late 2011, in quick order two presidents of the University of Texas College
Republicans chapter suffered national embarrassment after one posted about how
nice it would supposedly be to assassinate President Obama and when her
successor made the racist suggestion that the Commander-in-Chief was on crack.
First, Lauren Pierce tweeted the following message:
"I know it may be tempting, but don't shoot President Obama. We need him to go
down as the worst president in history."
Sorry, Lauren, but George W. Bush has a lock on the "worst president" title for
the foreseeable future. Unlike Graglia, when Pierce faced sufficient outcry,
she at least did the honorable thing and resigned. Then Cassandra Wright got
elected as her replacement and celebrated by tweeting this:
"My president is black, he snorts a lot of crack. Holla!" [...]
Are all students at the University of Texas racist? Certainly not. Are all faculty
members? Not by a long shot. But the university for most of its history actively
After desegregation, it chose to not respond to a law professor who used racial
slurs in class against his students. It ignored unethical psychology professors
who accepted research funds from a pro-Nazi organization and belonged to a group
that essentially advocated the biological elimination of the supposedly racially
unfit. [...] The school's landscape honored slavery and waxed nostalgic about the
Confederacy and a dormitory long bore the name of a domestic terrorist. From
its beginnings, "The University" has enabled negrophobia and xenophobia. Don't
blame cartoonist Stephanie Eisner for calling Trayvon Martin a "colored boy" in
a recent issue of the Daily Texan. She's just a product of her environment.

Morel is little remembered today. There is no mention of him in the histories of the eugenics movement by Haller (1963), Ludmerer (1972), Kevles (1985) and Degler (1991), or in the texts on eugenics by Osborn (1940), Bajema (1976) and Cattell (1972, 1987). But, working on the basis of what was inevitably the limited evidence of the 1850s, Morel was the first to set out the essential components of the case that genetic deterioration is taking place.

Harry F. Weyher Jr.
Harry F. Weyher Jr. (August 19, 1921 – March 27, 2002) was an American lawyer
and president of the Pioneer Fund from 1958 to 2002.
[...] After serving in World War II, he graduated magna cum laude from
Harvard Law School in 1949, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.
Early in his career, he worked for Cravath, Swaine & Moore and served as special
assistant attorney general to the New York State Crime Commission. In 1954, he
co-founded the New York City firm Olwine, Connelly, Chase, O'Donnell & Weyher.
He became an adjunct associate professor at New York University School of Law
and a member of the Society of the Cincinnati. Later in his professional career,
he was "of counsel" to the law firm of Hollyer, Brady, Smith, Troxell, Barret,
Rockett, Hines, and Mone. [...]
According to classmate (Harvard Law School) Leon Baker, Weyher "was the first
sergeant of a secret 120-member elite intelligence unit, which operated behind
enemy lines." In 1945, while Allied forces were attempting to seize the Arnhem
bridge, Weyher entered the deserted town of Remagen and discovered a bridge over
the Rhine that had not been destroyed by German troops. "Nine weeks after the
initial breakthrough at the Remagen bridge, the German army surrendered," wrote

Nachruf auf Harry F. Weyher aus seinem Freundeskreis
In Memoriam Harry F. Weyher
By Edith Hakola
Last December VDARE.com carried a review- quite probably the only favorable
review it received – of The Science of Human Diversity: A History of The Pioneer
Fund. The book was dedicated “to the memory of Wickliffe Preston Draper,
1892-1972, Scholar, Soldier, and Philanthropist.” Its publication, and the
remarkable success against all the odds that it chronicled, happened only
because Colonel Draper had been fortunate enough to find a man of integrity and
courage who shared his interests and could carry them forward into the 21st
century - long after Draper’s own lifetime ended.
Harry F. Weyher was that man. He died in the last days of March.
Because of Harry Weyher, Colonel Draper’s work was neither abandoned nor his
resources diverted to purposes that he would have abhorred - as has been the
fate of so many visionary philanthropists: Henry Ford and J. Howard Pew come
immediately to mind. In contrast, as Harry wrote in his preface to The Science
of Human Diversity, he tried to carry on the Pioneer Fund,
“in the way I think would have been wanted not only by Draper, but also by
General Frederick Osborn, Justice Harlan and the others who preceded me as
Pioneer directors and officers.” [...]
His career was spent in corporate tax and acquisitions, in addition to teaching
law at New York University and writing legal articles and two books on his
professional specialties. He was retained by Colonel Draper as his lawyer. But
he became his closest and most trusted friend.
As VDARE.com put it once before, the Pioneer Fund, “like an Irish monastery has
kept the study of human differences alive during the long egalitarian Dark Age.”
The mid-twentieth century saw an extraordinary Galileo-like episode of
intellectual repression with regard to the study of human differences. But
although Pioneer was small, it had disproportionate impact, both because of the
sheer scientific power of its approach and also because of Harry's leadership in
carrying forward Colonel Draper’s vision. Harry planned the strategy and
targeted judiciously the relatively limited funds.
Harry weathered the inevitable attacks from the politically correct with
steadfast courage and humor.[...] Peter Brimelow tells me he remembers Harry and
his lovely wife Michelle [...] during Brimelow’s Manhattan Institute presentation
on his immigration book Alien Nation, shaking with silent laughter as shockwaves
spread through the assembled liberal, libertarian and Establishment “Conservative”
Harry Weyher was always ready to discuss ideas and help individuals. When I last
talked with him, only two months before his death at the age of 80, he was still
making plans for the Pioneer Fund and its future.
Goodbye, Harry. You stayed the course and kept the faith.
Edith Hakola, a lawyer and long-time foundation executive, was a personal friend
of Harry Weyher. She is Executive Vice President of the Center for American
Unity. (which has NOT received support from the Pioneer Fund).

Bénédict Augustin Morel – Wikipedia
Bénédict Augustin Morel (*...1809 in Wien; † ... 1873 in Saint-Yon bei Paris)
war ein französischer Psychiater.
Morel wird zunächst Lehrer und dann Arzt. Zeitlebens ist er ein gläubiger
Morel formulierte 1857 eine Degenerationstheorie. Morels Begriff der
dégénérescence („Degeneration, Entartung“) entsprang dabei keinem rein
medizinischen Ansatz, sondern ging auf religiös-anthropologische Vorstellungen
Der Begriff Degeneration wurde bereits im 17. Jahrhundert im abwertenden Sinn
verwendet. Wenig widerstandsfähige Kinder und Kriminelle bezeichnete man als
Ursache der Abweichungen ist bei Morel der Sündenfall der menschlichen Natur. Am
Anfang stand der »type primitif« bzw. »type normal«, der Ursprungsmensch, der
mit Adam als identisch angesehen werden kann. Nach dem Sündenfall kann sich der
Mensch den äußeren Einflüssen der Welt, dem Klima, der Nahrung und der
Erblichkeit dieser Einflüsse nicht mehr entziehen und weicht von diesem
Ursprungsmenschen ab. Die führt zu zwei verschiedenen Arten menschlicher
Spezies: a.) Ein Teil der Nachkommen bleibt durch Anpassung gesund, erfüllt das
göttliche Gebot und setzt die Einheit der Gattung Mensch fort. b.) Bei den
Entarteten führen Belastungen, hervorgerufen durch die Eltern, das soziale
Milieu und einen falschen Lebenswandel (wie etwa Alkoholismus) zu
fortschreitender Degeneration. Letztere werden von zwei fundamentalen Gesetzen
beherrscht: a.) der doppelten Vererbung im Sinn des körperlichen und moralischen
Übels und b.) der Progressivität der Entartung bis zum Aussterben des
Geschlechts. Er klassifiziert die Entartungen unter ätiologischen
Gesichtspunkten und erklärt die Erblichkeit zur bedeutendsten Ursache der
Geisteskrankheiten, so dass Entartete und Geisteskranke identisch werden. [...]
Es ist nicht abwegig, anzunehmen, dass Hitlers Leibarzt Theodor Morell (1886-1948) sich für Morels Lehren besonders interessierte und sich dem Zeitgeist entsprechend auch dafür interessierte, ob er selbst aus der gleichen Familie stammte (was trotz des Unterschieds mit doppeltem und einfachem "l" auch der Fall gewesen sein mag).
Dies koennte einer von mehreren Wegen gewesen sein, auf denen die Besessenheit mit einer angeblich drohenden Gefahr der "Entartung" des Volkes zu ihrem bedeutenden Einfluss gelangte.
Auch Antisemitismus wurde eugenisch begruendet:
