Original 1955 Citizens' Council newspapers posted online!


Original copies of 1955 Citizens’ Council newspapers have been digitized and placed online. Ironically, the extreme left SPLC is credited with having assisted this effort.

The staff at CofCC.org was very excited to learn about this. Some of the charter members of the CofCC were former Citizens’ Council leaders. We have wanted to put something like this online ourselves for a long time.

The Citizens’ Councils of America was founded in 1955 by Maj. Bob Paterson, the first Provost Marshall of the American sector of Berlin. Paterson recently received the highest award given to foreigners by French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

Paterson is a proud member of the Council of Conservative Citizens today.
