Anglo-Saxon Clubs of America Application
This is an application form to join Virginia Post 1 of the Anglo-Saxon Clubs of America, a Richmond-based, nationwide organization devoted to the strict separation of the races. The organization was cofounded by Earnest Sevier Cox, a self-styled ethnographer, and John Powell, a composer, pianist, and professor at the University of Virginia. The applicant was required to state his marital status, church affiliation, and whether he belonged to any secret or fraternal order. The application also required personal endorsements and a ten dollar membership fee, which would be returned if the applicant were rejected.
