Abstract

The completion of this peer reviewed journal article was supported by AHRC Research Leave funding and constitutes the first study to situate C. P. Blacker's realignment of the Eugenics Society in the 1940s and 1950s in terms of the convergence of psychology and eugenics, and to recognise the influence of the (under-researched) work of William McDougall on Blacker's eugenic thought.
