Schools to be re­named:

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

The board of the Palo Alto (Calif.) Uni­fied School Dis­trict voted Fri­day to re­name two mid­dle schools that honor lead­ers in the eu­gen­ics move­ment. The dis­trict will re­name Jor­dan Mid­dle School, named af­ter Stan­ford found­ing pres­i­dent David Starr Jor­dan, and Ter­man Mid­dle School, named for Stan­ford psy­chol­o­gist Lewis Ter­man. Both were mem­bers of a group that be­lieved the hu­man race could be im­proved through se­lec­tive re­pro­duc­tion, in­clud­ing forced ster­il­iza­tion.
