A presumably near complete collection of propaganda from the American Eugenics Party. Title: A presumably near complete collection of propaganda from the American Eugenics Party Publication: Los Angeles: American Eugenics Party, 1960s.Description: The American Eugenics Party (AEP) was an obscure, pseudo-scientific white supremacist group based in California during the 1960s. Samuel Andrisani was the group's primary spokesman, although John S. Vanders is listed as the group's Public Relations Manager on one of the items. In 1967, Andrisani, whose title was Education Manager, ran for Los Angeles Board of Education #2 and his bizarre campaign platform is included. One of the group's most notorious pieces of propaganda was a pamphlet titled "The Ugliest Race, " (included here) in which black physiognomy is described in detail. The AEP states, The negro is shown to be THE UGLIEST RACE because negroes do not approach the hereditarily based universal beauty and function standards. The negro appearance violates the Universal Beauty Law.
Decades later, the pamphlet was included in a court case exhibition charging the Duluth Public Schools Academy in Duluth, MN with racism against its black students. The 14 items included in this collection appear to be the bulk (if not all) of the group's output and we find no reference to their activities past the 1960s. Not to be confused with the early 20th century group with the same name based in New York City.
