1935

The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occured within poverty-striken black populations.

Parallel with the eugenics programme, the Nazi racial doctrines were developed. The Nuremburg Race Laws of 1935 were drawn up after extensive discussion amongst leading academics. It can fairly be said that, rather than following their political masters, the medical profession and the scientific establishment were driving forces behind Nazi race theories. It is difficult to exaggerate the degree to which mainstream German science was involved. Racial theories, which grew out of the ideas of the Society for Racial Hygiene and other groups, had become an integral part of German academic life in the years after the First World War.

Within the scientific community itself many individuals, some of them early supporters of eugenics, came to oppose the movement. Noteworthy were the American biologists Herbert Jennings and T.H. Morgan, and the British biologists J.B.S. Haldane and Julian Huxley. The latter was grandson of Darwin’s great friend and advocate, T.H. Huxley, and the brother of Aldous, whose masterpiece Brave New World satirises the eugenics movement.
