Historian Katherine Benton-Cohen talked about her book, Inventing the Immigration Problem: The Dillingham Commission and Its Legacy. The U.S. Immigration Commission, better known as the Dillingham Commission after its chair Senator William Dillingham (R-VT), was formed by Congress in 1907 at a time when a large influx of immigrants was seen by many as a national crisis. The joint House and Senate effort issued an influential 41 volume report on their findings in 1911. The Wilson Center and National History Center co-hosted this event. close
