Nota Biográfica: Sir Alexander Morris Carr-Saunders, KBE, FBA (1886–1966) was an English biologist and sociologist. Carr-Saunders was born in Reigate, Surrey, and educated at Eton and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he gained a 1st in zoology in 1908. He remained a year at Oxford as a demonstrator in comparative anatomy but left in 1910 to University College London where he studied biometrics under Karl Pearson. Deciding against natural science, he instead read for the Bar of the Inner Temple. Concerned about all kinds of social ills and problems, he saw a solution in Eugenics for the engineering of society into a better condition. He became the secretary of the Eugenics Education Society and lived at Toynbee Hall. When World War I broke in 1914, he attempted to obtain a commission in the London Scottish Regiment, but was instead commissioned into the Royal Army Service Corps and was posted to a ration depot at Suez, due to the high standard of his French.
