Using Secondary Sources as Primary Sources

In some cases, you may wish to interpret as primary sources texts that originally were created as scholarly secondary sources.  For example, if you are investigating the eugenics movement in the United States in the early twentieth century, you could look at articles on the topic that were published in academic journals in the 1910s and 1920s.
