Description:

Viii,87,[1] pages, cloth, very good. "Prepared by commission of the Governor of Alabama." "This is one of a number of copies of Dr. George's report which has been purchased for distribution by the National Putnam letters Committee, Grand Central Station, New York". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. "Wesley Critz George (1888-1982) is remembered for his 87-page pamphlet, The Biology of the Race Problem, printed for the Commission of the Governor (John Patterson) of Birmingham, Alabama, 1962, which has been called "the last stand" of pseudoscientific racism. George argued for white biological racial superiority, and saved special venom for Frank Boas and his disciples. George used some of the same materials on intelligence tests, etc., that Jensen and Murray, among others, were later to use to try to prove black racial inferiority. Wesley Critz George was professor of histology and embryology, and chaired the Anatomy Department, University of North Carolina Medical School, and was an internationally recognized researcher on the genetics of race. Materials preserved at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, document George's theories on the genetic basis of "racial inferiority" beginning in 1944. There are also letters documenting George's disputes with religious leaders, particularly at the Chapel of the Cross in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, about racial mixing in churches, and George's disapproval of the "liberal" tendencies of university president Frank Porter Graham and sociologist Howard W. Odum. After the 1954 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education decision, George's fight against school integration escalated, reaching its height in 1955 - 1957, when George was active in the Patriots of North Carolina and then in the North Carolina Defenders of States' Rights which picked up the anti-integration banner after the Patriots' demise. George's activities in I. Beverly Lake's unsuccessful campaign for North Carolina governor are reflected in documents dated 1958 - 1960. George was also interested in race policies in other nations, specifically in Rhodesia and South Africa. Among his correspondents in the North Carolina archive are Carleton S. Coon, James P. Dees, Henry E. Garrett, Luther Hodges, R. Carter Pittman, Carleton Putnam, Clayton Rand, and Archibald Roosevelt. The archive also contains a considerable number of letters and other items that George received from individuals and organizations with extremist ideas on race relations. Bookseller Inventory #
