UF History Emeritus Professor David Chalmers, a noted historian of the Ku Klux Klan and Southern History, recently gave to SPOHP a truly remarkable collection of books from his personal library including original editions of Stetson Kennedy, Thomas Dixon, and Albion Tourgee.
The collection contains books on:
Notable books include “Southern Exposure” and “The Klan Unmasked,” by Stetson Kennedy, a fearless reporter who went undercover to expose Ku Klux Klan activities in the 1940s. Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt, who wrote “Freakonomics” in 2005 (also in this collection!), dubbed Kennedy “the greatest single contributor to the weakening of the Ku Klux Klan.” Also look for books by John Dixon Jr., who wrote “The Clansmen: An Historical Romance of the Ku Klux Klan” in 1905, which later inspired the 1915 film, The Birth of a Nation.
The following is a listing of books in the collection. The books are grouped by subject and/or decade. To view the books in each section, just click on the title. Click the title again to close the section. The collection is located in the SPOHP office in Pugh Hall, and is available for anyone to come in and browse through!
