Ku Klux Klan Leader Admits Active Work in Indianapolis

From The Indianapolis Star, Thursday, March 31, 1921: Organizers for the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan have been working several weeks in Indianapolis, Chicago, Cincinnati, Seattle and other cities and towns of the West and Middle Western States, Col. William Simmons, imperial wizard of the Knights, has confirmed. “Ku Klux Klan representatives have been working in these states in response to requests from thousands of patriotic, red-blooded American citizens who desired membership in an organization which stands four square on all questions involving the perpetuation of American ideals and institutions and the heritage bequeathed to us by the founders of this great republic,” Simmons said. Verifying that thousands have been taken into the Klan, the imperial wizard announced, “This proves the Ku Klux Klan is not a sectional organization, but an American institution of and for white American citizens.”
