The Race Betterment Foundation was established in 1911, in Michigan (Eugenics Organizations, n.d.). The Foundation was created through the benefaction of John H. Kellogg, who helped create Kellogg cereal (Eugenics Organizations, n.d.). Kellogg himself ascribed to eugenic theories, and the Foundation was created to help further the improvement of the race.
Three national conferences were sponsored by the Foundation, in 1914, 1915, and 1928 respectively (Eugenics Organizations, n.d.). These conferences helped advocated race betterment among the public (Eugenics Organizations, n.d.). The Foundation also worked with the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) in Cold Spring Harbor, to create another eugenics registry (Eugenics Organizations, n.d.). This registry would provide children with pedigrees based on what they inherited from their parents - it was suggested that contests be held, and awards provided based on these pedigrees (Holmgreen, 2002).
