In May 6, 1919, Dr. Thind petitioned for Citizenship at the
US District Court of Oregon. In November of 1920, the District
Court of Oregon granted Dr. Thind his citizenship.
the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reviewed the case and sent
it to the US Supreme Court for review. The Supreme Court later
rescinded Dr. Thind's citizenship, stating that Dr. Thind was
not a white person according revised statues. Below are a series
of documents of the proceedings on the Ninth Circuit Court of
Appeals regarding Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind's saga for US Citizenship.
