Walter Lynwood Fleming (1874-1932) est un historien et essayiste américain.

Thèses[modifier | modifier le code]

Fleming et quelques auteurs comme Susan Lawrence Davis ont tenté de tracer un lien entre le Ku Klux Klan et la franc-maçonnerie[1]. En effet, le chef maçonnique Albert Pike aurait occupé un rang élevé au sein du KKK[2],[3].
