ARCHIVES EVENT! VSARA Open House followed by "'Blood has Told:' The Push for a 'Eugenical Solution' in the Green Mountain State" presented by Mercedes de Guardiola5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at VSARA, 1078 US RTE 2, Middlesex, VT
“Blood has told:” The Push for a “Eugenical Solution” in the Green Mountain State. Scholarship on Vermont’s eugenics movement has largely focused on the Eugenics Survey of Vermont of the 1920s, even though state officials in Vermont proposed eugenical policies as early as 1912. Mercedes de Guardiola, a senior at Dartmouth College majoring in history, examines why eugenics emerged in Vermont and the impact of the State of Vermont’s eugenical policies over the course of the twentieth century. An open house and tours of the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration will precede the program, beginning at 5 pm. De Guardiola’s presentation is scheduled for 6 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
