Below are a selection of pictures from Henry H. Goddard's The Kallikak Family (New York: Macmillan Co., 1912), an important book in the history of eugenics which advocated the segregation of the "feeble-minded" in special institutions.

The details of the faces have been provided here in most cases, as a number of present-day authors have accused Goddard of modifying his photographs to make the "feeble-minded" children look more threatening.
