Daisy Douglas Barr
Daisy Douglas Barr (September 2, 1875 – April 3, 1938) was Imperial Empress (leader) of the Indiana Women's Ku Klux Klan (WKKK) in the early 1920s and an active member of the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU). Professionally, she was a Quaker minister in two prominent churches, First Friends Church of New Castle, Indiana and Friends Memorial Church in Muncie, Indiana.
However, in 1924, the Klan charged that Barr "had amassed a fortune off the dues of Klansmen." Two years later, she was replaced in her leadership position in the WKKK by Lillian Sedwick who was a state official in the WCTU.
