Pickler Memorial Library



Harry H. Laughlin Eugenics Collection

Eugenics Tree


Donated to Pickler Memorial Library by the family of Harry H. Laughlin in the 1940s, this collection includes both a library and a manuscript collection. An alumnus and former faculty member, Dr. Laughlin was the Director of the Eugenics Record Office and internationally known for his research in this field. The book collection has as its core Dr. Laughlin’s personal library and contains publications primarily on eugenics, genetics and related topics but does include other subjects. The Guide to the Harry H. Laughlin Papers is accessible online to help researchers locate information in the manuscript collection.
