Eugenic Rubicon

Localities: Sonoma State Hospital

The Sonoma State Hospital Site, designed by Justin Joque, uses photographs, narrative, maps, and a timeline to tell the story of the Sonoma State Hospital. This particular facility, while under the medical superintendence of Fred O. Butler, implemented the most far-reaching eugenic sterilization program in the country, sterilizing more than 5,400 people, many against their wishes. You can navigate the site from within the window below, scroll down to find the buttons for the map, timeline, and other content. For more than just quick viewing, we recommend using this site outside of the frame of this book - you can use this link or click on "source" below to view Sonoma State Hospital in a new window.
