Collection Overview

This collection consists of audio cassettes, transcripts, photographs, notes, and printed materials collected and created by Evelyn Rich as she researched her dissertation, "Ku Klux Klan Ideology: 1954-1988." Rich travelled the United States between 1983 and 1986, attending Ku Klux Klan rallies, meeting white nationalists like David Duke, Louis Beam, Roger Handley, Don Black, and Glen Miller. This collection contains her interviews with these men, as well as lower-level Klansmen and Klan women, discussing their backgrounds, political and racial beliefs, and their feelings and opinions on issues such as integration, the Republican Party, the Populist Party, and states' rights. The collection also includes recordings and photographs of Klan rallies, as well as copies of various white supremacist and white Christian nationalist literature and newspapers, including The Klansmen, Fiery Cross, NAAWP News, and The White Patriot.

A portion of the collection documents Rich's relationship with David Duke and Don Black, two prominent Klan leaders in the mid-1980s. Her relationship with Black is recorded through correspondence and several interviews, as well as photographs and notes from a roadtrip the two took together in 1986. Materials from Duke include extensive interviews about his beliefs on issues such as integration, the Holocaust, genetics, and white supremacy; poetry by Duke written for Rich and photographs from their trips and time together; newsletters, speeches, and political campaign ephemera from Duke's run for U.S. Senate, Louisiana governorship, and the presidency; and newspaper clippings quoting the Rich audio tapes (now held in this collection, then housed at Tulane University), which record Duke's racist and anti-Semitic ideology.

Historical Note

Evelyn Rich (1957- ) was born in England, and arrived in the United States in 1978. She travelled extensively through the country researching her dissertation between 1983 and 1986; during that period she met and interviewed many Ku Klux Klan members and other white nationalists. Rich earned her doctorate from Boston University in 1988. She is also the partner of Jared Taylor, founder of American Renaissance (another white nationalist group, based in Northern Virginia).
