Ashley Montagu in 1958

(The following quoted text is from the free Wikipedia:)

Montague Francis Ashley-Montagu (born as Israel Ehrenberg; 28 June 1905 in London, UK – 26 November 1999 in Princeton (New Jersey), USA), was a British-American anthropologist who popularized the study of topics such as race and gender and their relation to politics and development.

Later in life, Montagu actively opposed genital modification and mutilation of children. In 1994, James Prescott, Ph.D., wrote the Ashley Montagu Resolution to End the Genital Mutilation of Children Worldwide: a Petition to the World Court, named in honor of Dr. Montagu, who was one of its original signers.
