Biographical Text

Dr. Maurice Newfield was a doctor, and an editor for the Eugenics Review. The Eugenics Review was a scientific journal released from 1909 to 1968 and primarily revolved around human genetics. Maurice Newfield fought against the people who viewed Eugenics as a justification for dislike of "lower orders".
Eugenics were often used to breed "a better human" and for "keeping the American stock up to the highest standard" this lead to thousands of forced sterilizations of people deemed as poor, feebleminded, insane, criminals, or epileptics.
