Excerpt from Eugenics: A Lecture The present lecture is the first of a series of publications which are to appear under the auspices of the Philadelphia Board of the Catholic Summer School. It is the aim of the Catholic Summer School to extend as far as possible to our larger cities, and throughout the year, the educational and cultural opportunities which it provides for those who attend its annual sessions, during July and August, in its beautiful home at Lake Champlain (cliff Haven, New York). With a view to giving a wider and more permanent range of in uence to this extension work, the Board which represents the Summer School in Philadelphia has determined to publish, from time to time, some of the lectures delivered under its direction.
