520    Declared Defective is the anthropological history of an 
       outcaste community and a critical reevaluation of The Nam 
       Family, written in 1912 by Arthur Estabrook and Charles 
       Davenport, leaders of the early twentieth-century eugenics
       movement. Based on their investigations of an obscure 
       rural enclave in upstate New York, the biologists were 
       repulsed by the poverty and behavior of the people in Nam 
       Hollow. They claimed that their alleged indolence, feeble-
       mindedness, licentiousness, alcoholism, and criminality 
       were biologically inherited. Declared Defective reveals 
       that Nam Hollow was actually a community of marginalized, 
       mixed-race Native Americans, the Van Guilders, adapting to
       scarce resources during an era of tumultuous political and
       economic change. Their Mohican ancestors had lost lands 
       and been displaced from the frontiers of colonial 
       expansion in western Massachusetts in the late eighteenth 
       century. Estabrook and Davenport's portrait of innate 
       degeneracy was a grotesque mischaracterization based on 
       class prejudice and ignorance of the history and hybridic 
       subculture of the people of Guilder Hollow. By bringing 
       historical experience, agency, and cultural process to the
       forefront of analysis, Declared Defective illuminates the 
       real lives and struggles of the Mohican Van Guilders. It 
       also exposes the pseudoscientific zealotry and 
       fearmongering of Progressive Era eugenics while exploring 
       the contradictions of race and class in America.
