Transcript:
On a November day, a cold day like today, Carrie Buck and her mother were brought outside so that Arthur Estabrook could take a picture of them. Estabrook was a, by then, famous psychologist from the Cold Spring Harbor Eugenics Record Office, and this was the day before the trial which would decide that Carrie Buck would be sterilized. Estabrook brought them outside to make a record of that moment, and shot them on a park bench in the middle of the Colony.
