Carleton Gajdusek, above, visited tribes in New Guinea which had paedophile traditions.

Carleton was a Nobel prizewinning medical researcher from New York.

Carleton and his boys

In 1963 Carleton brought to the USA a 12-year-old boy he had adopted in New Guinea.

This was the first of his 56 adopted sons.

He put them all through school, and many through university or medical school.

In the 1990s the FBI were alerted that something was not quite right.

The FBI questioned Carleton's adopted sons.

It emerged that Carleton and one of his adopted sons had masturbated each other.

None of the other boys said Carleton had touched them.

Carleton in New Guinea.

Several of the sons were willing to give evidence in his favour.

But, Carleton, in his 70s, was sent to jail.

He was unapologetic about his conviction.

He said that "boys will be boys".

The People in the Trees

Carleton often said he thought that American law was too prudish.

He pointed out that his boys came from cultures where man-boy sex was common and unremarkable.


Carleton had a Slovak father and a Hungarian mother.

Daniel Carleton Gajdusek is the inspiration for Hanya Yanagihara's novel The People in the Trees.

The novel presents itself as the memoirs of a Nobel prizewinning convicted paedophile, Dr Norton Perina.

Perina comes across as somewhat arrogant and 'unthinkingly cruel'.

"The novel contains a critique of western imperialism."

The documentary The Genius and the Boys by Bosse Lindquist, shown on BBC Four on June 1, 2009, explains that "seven men testified in confidentiality about Gajdusek having had sex with them when they were boys".

Four said "the sex was untroubling" while three said "the sex was a shaming, abusive and a violation".

Victim of kuru.

Gajdusek's best-known work focused on the disease called kuru.

This disease was rampant among the South Fore people of New Guinea in the 1950s and 1960s.

Gajdusek connected the spread of the disease to the practice of eating the brains of dead relatives (funerary canibalism) by the South Fore.

With elimination of cannibalism, kuru disappeared among the South Fore within a generation.

I am speechless upon first reading of this Aangirfan.
I have been thanking you for all you do, since the day I stumbled onto your site.

Today the Lame stream media is jubilating over the UN report which demands from the Vatican that all child-abusing priests etc be turned over to the authorities.
That is a good start, although Kevin Annett was there first, with the itccs issuing the arrest warrant for Benedict and a certain cardinal.

In the interests of balance, equal rights etc, let us hope that the UN does precisely the same for helpless, vulnerable children at the mercy of disgusting, murdering pedophiles in politics, police, academia, government departments and agencies and all corporations and royal families and their sycophants.

Thank you again and again and again.
Peace xx

Gajdusek was mainstream long ago.

I echo Anon's penultimate paragraph. But it won't happen...I could add sports institutions. A study a few years ago in Die Zeit said something like that the Church carried no more no less that abusers than other groups in society which have access to children . It's just how the controlled media reports it the BBC for starters. Most paedophilia occurs in the family home.
