Three Successive Chairmen of Long Island's Suffok County GOP Were Klansmen

Long Island had the largest population of Ku Klux Klan members in New York State during the 1920s. Three successive chairmen of the Suffolk County GOP were Klansmen. The flagpole in front of Islip Town Hall was donated by the Islip branch of the Ladies of the Klan.
