"A born writer, especially a born story-teller. Dr. Sutherland, who is distinguished in medicine, is an amateur in the sense that he only writes when he has nothing better to do. But when he does, it could hardly be done better." G.K. Chesterton.
As another year draws to a close, I would like to thank you for your interest in Dr. Halliday Sutherland’s story. It has been a good year: 19 articles posted, Exterminating Poverty has been well received and I was honoured to be James Delingpole’s guest on his Delingpod podcast in July.
During the year, I published The Planter’s Story which is one of my favourites. I am very grateful to Ann Farmer for her guest-post Alive and Killing: The Old Malthusian and Eugenic Ideas that Refuse to Die (and Why You Should Care) published in March.
The centenary of Stopes v. Sutherland occurs early next year on 21st February 2023 (the day the trial opened in the High Court in London). I am delighted that the truth about Dr. Sutherland’s stand against eugenics is becoming better known… perhaps, at last, recognition will be given to the brave few who opposed eugenics in Britain.
Given that you are the crucial word-of-mouth channel of communication, I would be grateful if you would share Dr. Sutherland’s story with family and friends over the Christmas break.
Thank you for all your support – have a very Merry Christmas!
