Professor seeking information about Women of the Ku Klux Klan

UO geography prof, Dr. Susan Hardwick, is conducting research for a book chapter on the “Women of the Ku Klux Klan” (WKKK) in Oregon in the 1920s. Since most all of the written records of this group were kept secret and later destroyed, she is hoping to interview anyone who might know something about the history of this organization. This auxillary group of the Klan in Oregon was known as the WKKK (“Women of the Ku Klux Klan”) and the LOTIES (“Ladies of the Invisible Empire”).

If you or anyone you know is interested in being interviewed for this book project, please contact Susan at susanh@uoregon.edu. All names and contact information of interviewees will be kept strictly confidential.
