1904 – The Carnegie Institution established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards on ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples. From Cold Spring Harbor, eugenics advocates agitated in the legislatures of America, as well as the nation’s social service agencies and associations for forced sterilization policies and other eugenics-related legislation.[vii] The Eugenics Records Office will ultimately receive funding from the Rockefeller Foundation as well.[viii]
