International Congress of Eugenics
These organizational developments were not confined to the United States. Great Britain’s Eugenics Education Society had branches throughout its empire, and there were similar societies throughout Europe, South America, and Japan. In 1912, the Eugenics Education Society sponsored the first International Congress of Eugenics. Held in London, the conference had over 800 participants. The outbreak of the first World War delayed plans for a second, and it was not until 1921 that the Second International Congress was convened in New York; the third, and final, International Congress was held in 1932, again in New York.
