Enemy Alien Registration Affidavit for Albert Pagenkopf, 1917 - 1921.
Item From: Records of U.S. Attorneys. (07/01/1870)
Albert Pagenkopf filled out this enemy alien registration form stating that he had lived in the United States since 1883 and resided in Kansas. Pagenkopf was compelled to register as an enemy alien because Germany was his country of origin. During World War I, the U.S. government required German immigrants to fill out these forms due to fears of espionage and sabotage.
