Today -100: March 5, 1923: Of Americanism and Do Nothing Congresses

A Portland, Oregon Ku Klux Klan dinner honoring Grand Dragon Fred Gifford is attended by Oregon Gov. Walter Pierce and Portland Mayor George Baker. They give speeches on the subject of “Americanism.”

The 67th Congress comes to an end, and the NYT article about that says it’s been called the “do nothing Congress.” I wonder if I’ve been failing to notice that phrase, more usually associated with Truman in ‘48.
