Tuberculosis pioneer. Best-selling author. Convert to Catholicism. Enemy of eugenics, and eugenicists.
“The bulk of the tuberculous belong to stocks which we want ab initio to discourage. Everything which tends to check the multiplication of the unfit, to emphasize the at the fertility of the physically and mentally healthy, will pro tanto aid Nature’s method of reducing the phthisical death-rate.”
Karl Pearson F.R.S. Galton Professor of Eugenics, University of London, 1912 in Tuberculosis, Heredity and Environment.
“Between 1903 and 1918 Pearson and his staff published some three hundred works—including a series that Pearson chose to call ‘Studies in National Deterioration'”. Daniel Kevles, In the Name of Eugenics.
