dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to study various aspects of anti-foreign feeling in America during the nineteen-twenties and to determine reasons for these attitudes by examining articles in periodical literature of the time. Over two hundred sixtyfive articles from twenty-six different periodicals, as well as government documents and some of the better-known books concerning American immigration were consulted in researching this topic. Most of the information used came directly from periodical literature published between 1919 and 1929. Since a large majority of the anti-foreign sentiment voiced during the twenties was directed against immigrants, the matter of American immigration will receive the major emphasis of this thesis.
