New Book on the KKK

Share
My apologies for the lengthy absence from the blog. Most of the past year I have been busy researching and writing a book on the Ku Klux Klan in Wood County, Ohio.

The basis for the research was a collection of KKK records that were discovered in 1976 by a man named Tony DeIuliis on top of a burn pile in the backyard of an old house in Wood County that was being cleaned out. Tony recognized the value of the documents and convinced a local archive to store them. I also spent a great deal of time with Census records, old city directories, dozens of local newspapers, and other primary source documents to put together the history of the Klan in this largely rural setting in Northwest Ohio.

The following link is to a brief description of the book at The History Press, the publisher. The book is available in print and e-book versions, and I am told that they make excellent stocking stuffers.
