Ku Klux Klan Scrapbook of Newspaper Articles, 1913-1967

The Birmingham News
June 15, 1948
A scrapbook (517 pages) of collected newspaper articles covering the Ku Klux Klan for the years 1913-1967 has been added to Birmingam Public Library's Digital Collections database. The bulk of the articles cover the 1950s and 1960s.  

Birmingham Public Librarians culled local newspapers and some national papers to locate and cutout articles about the KKK. The scrapbook was digitized from the microfilmed copy of the scrapbook thanks to a generous grant from the Library Services and Technology Act.
