Wesley Critz George (1888–1982) was an American professor and Chair of the Department of Anatomy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

He may be most known for the 1962 The Biology of the Race Problem, commissioned by the Governor of Alabama. It supported race realism.

Regarding Brown v. Board of Education and (school) segregation, he "had been a strong opponent of racial mixing long before the Brown decision. He was a prominent scientist who recognized both that social science was ignoring biology and that biology itself was being increasingly purged of race. As early as 1952, in his presidential address to the North Carolina Academy of Sciences, he warned that political views were diverging ominously from biological facts. After Brown, he became politically active, running an organization called Patriots of North Carolina that helped defeat two North Carolina congressmen who had not signed the “Southern Manifesto.” As he pointed out in 1955, “There is already enough knowledge available to show the folly of [the Brown] decision. Our problem is to get that knowledge presented in impressive form and disseminated to the public to counteract the sophistry of the integrationists.” During the Stell trial, he gave convincing testimony on the biology of racial differences."[1]
