The Harry Laughlin House located at 201 W Normal Street in Kirksville, MO is owned by and on the campus of Truman State University. The house is currently sitting unused but has the potential to be a teaching tool for future generations. Harry Laughlin played a huge role in Eugenics popularization in the United States in the 1920s and 1930s and also pushed for legalization of involuntary sterilization of people with mental and physical disabilities. Although eugenics was a dark time for science and humanity knowing about this event and Harry Laughlin's part in it is very important for moving forward.
