Al, why are you starting in the 1930s, and not the 1920 when eugenics started in earnest (see Buck v. Bell!) I quote a few prominent law professors in my book as being very supportive of the outcome.

Alfred Brophy

Really good question, David. In the larger work I will talk about the 1920s (and the 1940s), too. But my primary purpose now is to put the North Carolina statute into context, so I wanted to see what people were thinking at the time NC repassed sterilization.
