1. Charles Anderson, An Address on Anglo Saxon Destiny; Delivered before the Philomathesian Society, of Kenyon College, Ohio, August 8th, 1849: And Repeated before the New England Society of Cincinnati; December 20th, 1849 (Cincinnati, OH: John D. Thorpe, 1850). (48 p.)

Critique of the argument that persons of Anglo Saxon descent are physically, intellectually, and morally superior to people with a different ancestry. The speaker approaches the issue from both the hereditary (i.e., Anglo Saxon superiority is “in the blood”) and religious (i.e., God has chosen the Anglo Saxon race for His purposes) perspectives. (Incidentally, a philomathesian is a lover of knowledge.)
