Part of: Records of the Kansas Governor's Office. Records of the Kansas Governor's Office : administration of Governor William Eugene Stanley (1899-1903).

Scope and Content

Scope and content:

This series mostly consists of letters received by Governor William Eugene Stanley but can also include proclamations and a few petitions, reports, copies of letters sent, and other types of documents. Some proclamations may have also been interfiled with other items received relating to the subjects of the proclamations. The materials are divided into four sub-series: an Alphabetical File; a State Agencies File; a Subject File; and an Applications, Recommendations and Endorsements File. Documents that may have been addressed to Governor Stanley but dated or pertaining to the time period after his term expired in 1903 may be filed with the records of his successor, Governor Willis Joshua Bailey.

The Alphabetical File consists of one general file containing letters received that were filed, not necessarily in strict alphabetical order, by the name of the author on a wide range of subjects. Contained therein are, generally, letters of congratulations; correspondence relating to budget, accounting and audits, state positions, labor statistics, recommendations and vacancies, Governor's addresses, State contracts, the state militia, legislation, politics, utility services, goods offered for sale, taxation, transportation, railroad regulation, public policy, liquor trafficking, women suffrage and equality, private and public land issues, interstate co-operation, and water works and other engineering projects; and requests for information, publications, or action. Letters may have been filed here because there was not an appropriate place for them in the State Agencies or Subject Files.

Letters from or relating to State departments are in the State Agencies File. Correspondence received may include State departmental personnel, vacancies, resignations and appointments. However, most pertain to the operation of individual State agencies. The letters request the Governor to take specific actions, ask his approval, send him information, ask him questions, tell of events, provide legal opinions, forward other letters and petitions, confirm or acknowledge gubernatorial actions, and request the Governor’s presence.

Subject Files contain letters received by the Governor on a wide variety of topics. Significant subjects in Governor Stanley's files include cities and towns; claims; commissioners of deeds; congresses and conventions; county affairs; crimes and criminals, including material on Isaac A. Reed and Kate Bender and rewards and reward proclamations; the Fort Hays Military Reservation; insurance and the investigation of the superintendent of insurance; legislation; the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in Saint Louis in 1904; the military; probate judges; Prohibition; relief; and scholarships.

The Applications, Recommendations and Endorsements File pertains to positions in State government, usually those that the governor has appointment influence or responsibility. Included in these records is correspondence concerning the adjutant general; positions at the Kansas State College of Agriculture and Applied Science, now Kansas State University, in Manhattan; the Board of Trustees of Charitable Institutions; the Court of Visitation; the State grain inspector; the livestock sanitary commissioner; military appointments; the Normal School, now Emporia State University; the State oil inspector, deputy oil inspector, and coal oil inspector; railroad commissioners; commissioners for the State Industrial Reformatory in Hutchinson; and Supreme Court justices.
