This image is the title page of a pamphlet containing an edited version of The Truth about the Invisible Empire, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a pro-Klan lecture presented at Portland’s Municipal Auditorium on December 22, 1921. A showing of the pro-Klan film The Face at Your Window followed the lecture. The author of the speech, Reverend Reuben H. Sawyer, was a part-time pastor at Portland’s East Side Christian Church and a popular Klan speaker who traveled to cities throughout the state to help organize new chapters, or klaverns.
