One of the greatest mysteries of my life is, why do the good suffer and the evil get rewarded.
How the Evil of Eugenics Shaped Greg Wyatt
This is just a brief synopsis and timeline of how eugenics shaped me into the person I am today.
Spring 1937 – At the age of 13 Herbert Wyatt is placed into the Nebraska State Home for Feeble Minded Youth in Beatrice Nebraska by Nebraska Social Services. His crime? He was poor and came from a broken family with an alcoholic step-father. He never went to court.
Fall 1948 – After 11 years of living in an insane asylum he was released at the age of 24. There was one condition for his parole. He would be (eugenically) sterilized so he could not ever have a child or family of his own.
Spring 1949 – Herbert meets Betty, a shy and overweight Minnesota farm girl. Six Weeks later they are married.
Spring 1954 – After 5 years of childlessness Herbert tearfully confesses his (eugenicial) incarnation in the asylum and his fear that if he would have told her the truth that she would not of married him.
Summer 1954 – Betty reads a mystery magazine about (eugenics) artificial insemination and the next week visits her doctor and explains the situation. He meets with both Betty and Herbert and they decide to go through the procedure. He assures them a donor will be selected that has the same physical characteristics as Herbert and that it should be a secret only known to them. They are to tell no one under any circumstances.
September 9, 1954 – Betty is inseminated via eutelegensis, (eugenicial) artificial insemination. There is only one donor available at the time. A tall broad shouldered Dutch Immigrant who waited 6 years to immigrate and his wife to America. He is working on his doctorate at the University of Nebraska and his wife is pregnant and seeing the same doctor as Betty.
June 8, 1955 – Betty gives birth to a healthy baby boy. Herbert cannot believe that he now a father. They name him Gregory.
1956 – Wanting a bigger family Betty tries artificial insemination again and again with no results.
1959 – Greg is now 4 years old. He is meeting his milestones at an astounding pace. It is evident that he is way ahead of children his age. Betty takes him to the University of Nebraska where his IQ is tested at 167.
1960 – The secret starts to fracture Betty and Herbs fragile relationship. Herb works 60+ hours a week in a cement plant for minimum wage. Herbert loves his son Greg like his own flesh and blood. Wherever Herb goes he takes his son Greg with him stating proudly “That’s my boy.”
1961 – Bettys quest for a larger family becomes an obsession. They give up on artificial insemination and apply for adoption. Knowing of Herbs incarceration at the Nebraska State Home of Feebleminded Youth, the State of Nebraska, Department of Social Services deny the application on the grounds that they are not fit for a larger family. Betty is crushed and the resentment towards Herbert festers and grows as her depression grows.
1962 through 1964 – Betty seeks out other alternatives and begins to take in foster children. She just wants to love and be loved. It is sad for Greg as not one foster child stays longer than 6 months. Greg longs for a brother and sister.
1965 – Betty hears on television of the plight of tens of thousands of abandoned orphans in Korea.
While social services would not approve the Wyatts for adoption of white American children they approved them for a mixed race international adoption. (eugenics/social engineering). The Wyatts begin the adoption process.
1966 – The adoption process is now complete and Lisa arrives. She is almost a year old. Betty, Herb and Greg are ecstatic. Several months later Betty begins her quest to adopt another Korean orphan.
1967 – The second adoption process is now complete and Jodi arrives from Korea. She is also almost a year old.
1968 – Betty becomes focused on her two new family members. Herb continues his 60+ hour work week, working at minimum wage. With the expanded family members it is no longer is enough to pay for the necessities and debt slowly begins to pile up.
1969 – Greg is now 14 and is growing up quickly with little to no supervision or guidance neither parent has time to spend with him. Betty is focused exclusively on the girls now 2 and 3 years old. Herbert leaves at 6am and gets home at 6pm. The arguing over money issues intensities and Greg at the age of 14 decides to find a job. He starts a lawn mowing business, gets a paper route, saves his money and buys a motorcycle against his mom’s wishes and finds freedom.
December 1970 – Greg gets home from school and finds an empty home. All the furniture is gone, the car is gone and there is a 30 day notice to vacate on the front door due to bankruptcy. Homelessness becomes reality. Greg quits high school and gets a full time job.
January 1971 – Panicked and with less than $200 in funds Betty searches for a place for the family to live. She finds a small vacant and abandoned home with broken windows and a red tagged furnace that is listed for lot value only. The real estate broker is compassionate and caring and agrees to sell the home for $75 down and $75 a month for 10 years. Greg quits high school and gets a job.
Spring 1971 – 1973 The Wyatt family is now on life support. Betty starts a sewing shop to help the growing costs of raising family. She grows depressed and lashes out at Herb who quietly absorbs her constant anger towards him. Despite this Herb loves his children unconditionally and is dedicated to them. He is now working 60+ hours a week for minimum wage an a failing attempt to keep his sinking family afloat.
Easter Sunday 1973 – Greg’s friend invites him over to a party where the crowd is smoking pot, listening to rock music and having a good time. Greg is offered a toke several times and declines. After an hour or two he gives in. He likes the friendship and the comradeship of his new found friends.
April 1973 – Less than a month attending the parties a biker named Bear offers Greg a way to make some money and fronts him an ounce of pot for $50 and explains that he can divide it up in quarter ounces, sell them for $20 and make a profit of $30. By now most of Greg’s friends are all smoking it and it is easy to get rid of.
May 1973 – In the next few weeks Greg parties and sells pot for Bear. Greg doesn’t know that Bear got busted shortly after they met. Bear sets up Greg and 3 dozen others to avoid prison time and the largest drug bust in Nebraska history takes place. At 17 Greg is the youngest arrested.
