Abstract:

A file from the records of the NAACP's national headquarters that includes letters, telegrams, reports, press releases, newspaper clippings, and pamphlets relating to the lynching of three African American men by a mob of angry whites in Duluth, Minnesota, on June 15, 1920, following the alleged rape of a white woman by black men employed by a traveling circus.

Materials in the file provide information on the mob violence and lynchings; events preceding and following them; findings of investigations into the incidents by law enforcement officials, the Duluth grand jury, and the NAACP; and subsequent legal proceedings. They document the role of the NAACP's Duluth, Minneapolis, and St. Paul branches in mounting the legal denfense--especially with respect to fund raising--for the two black men tried for rape (William Miller, who was acquitted, and Max Mason, who was convicted) and the appeal of Mason's conviction to the Minnesota Supreme Court, as well as the branches' efforts to influence the response of public officials to and newspaper coverage of the lynchings.

The correspondence is largely that of NAACP national officials with officers of the Minnesota branches, Governor J.A.A. Burnquist, the defense attorneys, and NAACP branches in other states. The newspaper articles and editorials were clipped not only from Duluth and Twin Cities papers but also from many published in other parts of the country.
