Office of the Grand Dragon, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Realm of Missouri: Special Bulletin


A special bulletin by William M. Campbell, Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan, providing his opinion on Alfred Emanuel "Al" Smith, the 1928 Democratic U.S. presidential candidate. Campbell opposes Smith on the grounds that Smith is an Irish, Catholic, and supports the repeal of Prohibition. Campbell proclaims, "Out of this new second generation of cults, with their gay philosophy and their continental Sabbaths, with their belief in authority for conduct in the church, rather than in the state, come Smith and his kind."
