Henry E. Garrett (1894–1973) "was the President of the American Psychological Association in 1946 and Chair of Psychology at Columbia University from 1941 to 1955. In the 1950s Garrett helped organize an international group of scholars dedicated to preventing race mixing, preserving segregation, and promoting the principles of early 20th century eugenics and "race hygiene." Garrett became a leader in the fight against integration and collaborated with those who sought to revitalize the ideology of National Socialism]]. I discuss the intertwined history the International Association for the Advancement of Ethnology and Eugenics (IAAEE), the journal Mankind Quarterly, the neofascist Northern League, and the ultra-right-wingpolitical group, the Liberty Lobby. The use of psychological research and expertise in the promotion of neofascism is examined." [1]
