|Died||February 19, 1987|
|Occupation||Biologist, white supremacist|
Kuttner was born in Queens, New York. He obtained a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Connecticut. He was an initial director of the International Association for the Advancement of Ethnology and Eugenics and was contributor and associate editor to Charles Lee Smith's Truth Seeker.
Kuttner opposed miscegenation and believed it was "unnatural", only found amongst zoo animals. He described his own position as "scientific racism". He identified as a nordicist and argued against racial equality. Kuttner stated that Negroes were racially inferior, they had failed to build and create civilization and they lacked intelligence. Anthropologist Robert Sussman has described Kuttner as a "lifelong neo-Nazi".
Kuttner collaborated on racial ideas about "biopolitics" with Eustace Mullins. He wrote for Roger Pearson's Northern World, the floundering The American Mercury and was an editor of the Mankind Quarterly. He redacted the book Race and Modern Science (1967), in response to the UNESCO statements on race. It was negatively reviewed by Sherwood Washburn who described it as a "useful source book for racists. Anthropologists need not bother with it."
