Campaign Committee of Asiatic Exclusion League of California
Aug, 1910
The Asiatic Exclusion League was a racist labor organization formed on May 14, 1905 in San Francisco to prevent Asians from competing for jobs. Among those attending the first meeting were Patrick Henry McCarthy, a labor leader and at one time mayor of San Francisco, and Olaf Tveitmoe of the Building Trades Council of San Francisco. Tveitmoe became the first president of the organization. It was widely believed that Tveitmoe and Anton Johannsen arranged for the bombing of the Los Angeles Times building.
