Earlier this year, I visited the Harvard University School of Medicine’s Francis A. Countway Library which houses the papers of Dr. Clarence Gamble of Milton, MA. Gamble, a grandson of one of the founders of Proctor and Gamble and the head of the Eugenist Society, was a colleague of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. They had an extensive correspondence which included Sanger’s promotion of “The Negro Project” where birth control would be promoted in black communities with the urging of black doctors and clergymen. They also promoted the “Puerto Rican Project” where Hispanic women were given birth control pills. This collection below contains over 20 years of correspondence. In one letter from July 9, 1952, Sanger laments that their efforts are very successful since she sees the schoolyards of America filled with “roaring, shrieking children.”
The Left promotes the idea that America has a “systemic racism” problem. If they believe it, they should help expose the likes of Sanger and Gamble by putting copies of these letters on display all over the United States.
