Tanton Papers Reveal Truth About Michigan Anti-Immigration Group
John Tanton, perhaps the most important leader in the anti-immigration movement over the past 20 years, has deposited his papers at the University of Michigan's Bentley Historical Library. Tanton's links to the Pioneer Fund and his calls for neutralizing Dr. Mehler's Institute for the Study of Academic Racism are prominently revealed in these papers.
In a May 1997 letter to Harry Weyher, president of the Pioneer Fund, Tanton outlines how the Pioneer Fund should respond to the "Barry Mehlers of the World."
