This pamphlet published by the Ku Klux Klan lists the reasons for joining the Klan and contains The Ku Klux Kreed. In 1924, prominent Emporia newspaper publisher William Allen White entered the Kansas gubernatorial race to campaign against the Ku Klux Klan's growing influence in the state and the nation after World War I. White lost but helped reelect anti-Klan Republican Charles B. Griffith as Kansas attorney general. In office, Griffith acted as plaintiff in the Kansas Supreme Court case, State of Kansas vs. Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. As a result, the state denied the Klan a charter to legally operate, which led to the Klan's decline in Kansas by 1926.

Date: Between 1920 and 1929
