Throughout the collection there are many records that indicate the children under the age of 18 were sterilized. This timeline pairs text snippets from the records, the year the record was created, and the age of the child with contemporary photographs of children of roughly the same age. The children photographed here have no direct correlation to the children named in the records, instead they serve as a visual reminder of the youth of the people discussed in the records. The text is entirely drawn from the California sterilization recommendations.
