One of the Birth Control Review’s 1939 consulting editor was Clairette Armstrong.

On April 1, 1933, Clairette P. Armstrong, of the Children’s Court of the City of New York, read a paper at the meeting of the New York Branch of the American Psychological Association. The author analyzed the problem in relation to immigration by particular racial groups.

In 1934, Armstrong called for a mental test for immigrants entering the United States. He called the children of immigrants a “deviant” and largely mentally sub-normal children.
