A cross burning occurred in Clinton in the 1920s attributed to the KKK. It's mentioned in the local weekly. Willing to assist,

2006 history of the town of Henderson.

A college senior is looking for primary source information on the Ku Klux Klan 
in New York State during the 1920s.  He would like to focus on Central New York 
or the Mohawk Valley if possible.  Any ideas where primary sources might be 
found would be greatly appreciated.
