The Science of Human Diversity: A History of the Pioneer Fund

Richard Lynn / 2001

In The Science of Human Diversity, Richard Lynn gives an account of the research sponsored by the Pioneer Fund of New York. The Fund was established in 1937 by the textile millionaire Wickliffe Draper to support research in genetics, heredity and eugenics. Since its foundation, the Fund has sponsored much of the most significant research on genetic contributions to intelligence and personality. The work supported by the Fund has been on both the individual and race differences. The Fund has frequently been attacked for supporting work regarded as controversial. In this book, Lynn sets the record straight by providing a history of the individuals supported by the Fund and their work.
