Resumen

SOUZA, Vanderlei Sebastião de et al. The National Museum's physical anthropology archive: sources on the history of eugenics in Brazil. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2009, vol.16, n.3, pp. 763-777. ISSN 0104-5970.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59702009000300012.

The article presents a set of documental sources that are part of the physical anthropology archive administered by the National Museum's biological anthropology sector (UFRJ). The archive holds important documentation on the first Brazilian congress of eugenics, held in Rio de Janeiro in 1929, in celebration of the National Academy of Medicine centennial. In addition to the originals of papers presented at the event (some unpublished), the archive also contains a series of documents compiled by the congress organizers, including announcements of the event, attendee registrations, correspondence, newspaper and magazine clippings of articles on eugenics, as well as motions, reports, and final minutes, all of which makes this collection invaluable in understanding the history of eugenics in Brazil.

Palabras llave : First Brazilian Congress on Eugenics; history of eugenics; Physical Anthropology Archive (National Museum/UFRJ); Brazil.
