Prof. Garland E. Allen's Foreword to the book, "H.H. LAUGHLIN: American Scientist. American Progressive. Nazi Collaborator."

  • 1. Author


One of the most rewarding aspects of the rewrite and reboot of “The Eugenics Anthology” was working with now-retired Professor Garland E. Allen. Anyone that has spent any amount of time researching eugenics and scientific racism knows that Professor Allen is one of the most often cited authorities on the subject. Professor Allen led the move to research the American side of the International eugenics movement and was rummaging through the Laughlin Papers at Truman University’s Special Collections before they were even organized into boxes. Professor Allen was a pioneer, while others in academia had a myopic focus on the German side of the equation. Needless to say, benefiting from Professor Allen’s guidance through the rewrite of “H.H. Laughlin” was a milestone in itself; one of those occasions where the journey was a reward in itself. It is thus that I am proud to share the Foreword Professor Allen wrote for “H.H. Laughlin.” - A.E. Samaan, 12/13/2020
