Excerpt from Biennial Report of the Eugenics Board of North Carolina: July 1, 1946 to June 30, 1948 It was believed Wise to proceed slowly in order to develop a sound basis for sterilizations in North Carolina. The magni tude of the problems of feeblemindedness and mental disease in the state, however, indicated that sterilization must be done on a larger scale than formerly if the benefits intended by the legislation were to be secured. When the 1933 legislation was enacted, no appropriations were made for the Eugenics Board. Until June 30, 1935, all expense was borne by the State Board of Public Welfare. In 1935 the General Assembly made a small appropriation to the Eugenics Board. The State Board of Pub lic Welfare, ' however, continued to contribute the part4time services of a staff member to serve as secretary for the Board and to provide additional supplies, materials, and postage. In order to increase the effectiveness of the work of the Eugenics Board, the 1947 Legislature made provision for the employment of an executive secretary. The position was filled as of July 24, 1947. 1section 35-36, General Statutes of North Carolina. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
