It seems likely that Fried- 20 THE WELLBORN SCIENCE rich Krupp, an amateur biologist, was convinced by Haeckel of the scientific and political desirability of such an undertaking; Haeckel greatly resented the ban on teaching Darwinism in the schools, which stemmed in large measure from Social Democratic attempts to use Darwin's theory in support of their left-wing politics (Weiss 1983, pp.

This is especially evident in the association's journal, the Zeitschrift fur Volksaufartung und Erbkunde (19261927) and its successor publication, Volksaufartung, Erblehre, Eheberatung (1928-1930).
