Ku Klux Klan in North Dakota, 1916-1981
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: The records of the Ku Klux Klan in North Dakota consists of newspaper articles, Klan publications, and historical journal articles regarding Klan activity in North Dakota and, primarily in Grand Forks, during the 1920s. Also included is a photocopy of the application and charter for Grand Forks Klan #1 to incorporate as a fraternal society. The charter was issued by the Imperial Wizard, Emperor of the Invisible Empire, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan on June 4, 1922, and officially recognized the Grand Forks Klan to perform all acts under Klan law. The charter was accepted by the Grand Forks Klan, also known as the Ansax Club, on September 21, 1923, but was never officially chartered due to insufficient funds. Some of these records were originally part of the North Dakota Pamphlet File.
