Summary

This photographŒs caption explained that English novelist Margaret Moore Kennedy (1896-1967) "has demonstrated that a good story can be written which follows the rules of heredity." KennedyŒs novel The Fool of the Family had been recently praised by geneticist Wilhelmine Marie Euteman Key (b. 1872), "... it is not necessary to ignore the laws of heredity in order to produce an interesting fiction family.... Dr. Key says that Margaret Kennedy's appeal to heredity, is entirely in line with the latest conclusions in the field." (Marjorie Van de Water, "False Fiction Families," Science News Letter, August 29, 1931).
