Germany's first advocate of eugenics who, along with Alfred Ploetz, founded the German eugenics movement. Schallmayer made a lasting impact on the eugenics movement.
Schallmayer believed the state had the duty to protect and develop the biological capacity of its people. He praised the Social Democratic Party for their support of science education and collective ownership but criticized the Marxist for their preoccupation and belief in economic equality for all. Schallmayer believed that the political parties were driven by special interest, but eugenics was the philosophy that could unite the parties for a meaningful purpose.
He died on 4 October 1919, aged 62.
