This collection documents the activities of regional and national Klan organizations, local Klan chapters, and individual Klan members. Materials in the collection were accumulated over time by the Special Collections and Archives Division of Emory University. The collection includes materials from the following Klan organizations: Association of Georgia Klans, The National Knights, Northern and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, United Klans of America (KKKK), U.S. Klans, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Inc., and Women of the Ku Klux Klan (WKKK). The Ku Klux Klan collection includes correspondence, images, printed materials, and memorabilia and artifacts. The correspondence consists of single letters rather than sustained correspondence. The images are primarily photographs of particular events or portraits of Klansmen wearing their robes. Printed material include handbills, posters, and broadsides announcing Klan events, the music for "The Ku Klux Kismet" march, a souvenir from the Southern Amusement Company's production of "The Clansman." This series also contains a few issues of newspapers reporting on Klan activities. The memorabilia and artifacts include a child's Klan robe (a photograph of the child wearing the robe can be found in the Images series). The audiovisual series includes albums of music recorded by Klansmen.
