Article "John Powell Helps Form Anglo-Saxon Club"

Description

John Powell, distinguished as a pianist and white supremacist, helped form a chapter of the Anglo-Saxon Club of America at the University of Richmond. The purpose of the club was to preserve Anglo-Saxon civilization in the United States and to participate in the "intelligent selection and exclusion of immigrants". In a talk given to history students, Powell discussed the "problem of absorption of the negro race by the Anglo-Saxon." and concluded that this would result in the degradation of the "stronger race." The history department was chaired by Dr. S.C. Mitchell at the time.
