Eugenics, Anti-Miscegenation, and Progressives

Eugenics and Progressives were usually one and the same, which is ironic, because to hear it told today, anti-miscegenation was something that conservatives was against.  Actually, it was liberals, and Progressives in particular–and certainly eugenicists!–that were against the intermarriage of blacks and whites, and for that matter, whites and any other race, too.  One must …
