Cowboys, Indians, and Aliens: White Supremacy in the Klamath Basin, 1826-1946: Featured Archival Sources

This guide accompanies the Charlene Conrad Liebau Library Prize 2016 Exhibit featuring prizewinner Andrea Ikeda's paper Cowboys, Indians, and Aliens: White Supremacy in the Klamath Basin, 1826-1946.
Ikeda’s research led her deep into the archives as she pored over personal journals and studies written by incarcerated Japanese American researchers, confidential reports by War Relocation Authority administrators, community publications written behind barbed wire, and more. These headlines, published in the local newspapers of the Klamath Basin, represent a small portion of the articles she analyzed, and give a glimpse into the reactions and attitudes of the area’s white residents to the so-called “Japanese Problem” in their midst.
