    Australian anthropologist, geologist, politician, and medical practitioner Herbert Basedow (1881-1933), popularised the theory that progressive crossbreeding of Indigenous Australians with Europeans would eliminate all Aboriginal racial characteristics. This ultimately led to the Stolen Generation.
