Ray Hugh Garvey

Ray Hugh Garvey was born 3 January 1893 on a farm in Phillips County, Kansas, the youngest of three children of Seth Homer Garvey and Nettie Post Garvey (nee Jannetta Jane Post).

Ray graduated from high school in Phillipsburg, Kansas. He taught school for one year before entering Washburn College, now University, in Topeka, Kansas, in the fall of 1910. He earned money for college by planting wheat each winter on a rented quarter of land. He also bought and ran two paper routes while attending college at Washburn. He received a bachelor of arts degree in 1914, and a bachelor of laws degree in 1915.

Upon graduation, he practiced law and served as county attorney for Thomas County, Kansas, as well as maintaining a private law practice from his office in Colby. He married Olive Hill White of Augusta, Kansas, on 8 July 1916, and the couple settled in Colby. They had four children: Ruth Caroline, Willard White, James Sutherland, and Olivia Rae.

His life was fueled by an energetic outlook and a natural curiosity. Beginning with farming in the Colby area from 1916 to 1928, his interests expanded to farming on a larger scale, grain, elevators, petroleum, construction, low cost housing, and investments.

He became a partner in Judge A. A. Kendall's land business in 1918. In order to sell the land and to run it effectively, Garvey went to work himself. He innovated by running large acreages like a business and asking the farmers to account for every penny of expense. Eventually his farms operated over 100,000 acres, and on them, Garvey harvested a 1,000,000 bushel wheat crop in 1947, believed to be the largest harvest for an individual in American history.

He also owned the Service Oil Company that had several service stations and distribution centers in western Kansas. Toward the end of the 1930s, he purchased a number of defunct banks and acquired their remaining assets including real estate and mortgage notes. During World War II, Ray Garvey formed Builders, Incorporated, and became involved in housing construction and rentals in the Wichita area. After the war, his sons Willard and James became managers of several of his companies. James Garvey took responsibility for the farming operations and Willard Garvey assumed control of Builders, Incorporated.

Ray Garvey continued investing in real estate, this time focusing on eastern Colorado land. In partnerships with John Kriss and H. C. Wear, he acquired vast expanses of virgin ranch and farm land. Garvey expanded into oil exploration and distribution using profits from his farming operation with the formation of Petroleum, Incorporated, and Drillers, Incorporated, during the latter half of the 1940s. He also created Amortibanc to deal with installment securities

As the 1950s began, Ray Garvey embarked on his involvement with grain elevator terminals. During the last ten years of his life, Garvey erected elevators in Kansas, Nebraska, and Texas, including the largest single grain elevator in the world located in Wichita, Kansas. The C-G-F Grain Company also had the largest amount of agricultural storage space in the world, and it was in this industry that Ray Garvey received his greatest publicity. Much attention was focused by several major newspapers and national magazines on the amount of money he received in the form of government subsidies.

Throughout his career, Ray Garvey was involved in political and national issues. He philosophically and financially supported several political organizations including the Republican Party and the America First Committee. He exchanged correspondence with many governors, members of Congress, presidents, and other government officials on a regular basis regarding his political concerns about the United States economy, foreign policy, government spending, and taxes. Additionally, Garvey was involved with many civic and academic organizations and contributed frequently to them through the Garvey Foundation.

Garvey was known by those who knew him as "a good story." He dressed modestly and drove a Ford to avoid "putting on airs" as well as to show his employees an example of a low cost operation. He was known as a strict but ethical negotiator who always followed through on his deals.

Ray Garvey died 30 June 30 at the age of sixty-six of injuries sustained in an automobile accident on a highway near McPherson, Kansas.

Additional Information for Researchers

Restrictions: During the lives of Olive W. and Ray H. Garvey’s four children and their spouses, access to the Olive White Garvey and Ray Hugh Garvey Papers is restricted to those to whom the trustees of the Olive White Garvey Trust grant unanimous and express permission. Requests for access received by the Kansas Historical Society will be forwarded to the attorney for the Olive White Garvey Trust who will then poll the trustees to determine their approval or disapproval of the access request, and relay the trustees’ decision to the Kansas Historical Society.

Action note: Sixty-two boxes of the Olive White Garvey papers (series 1, sub-series 1-4) were processed in 1995-1996 by Kerry R. Malchose, intern, Special Collections, Wichita State University (Kan.) (WSU) as part of a combined project by WSU’s Dept. of Special Collections and Public History Program funded by the Olive Garvey Trust Fund. Thirty-seven boxes of the Ray Hugh Garvey Papers (series 2) were processed in 1999 by Anthony Brusca, Special Collections, WSU, with funding provided by a Garvey Family grant. Thirty boxes of the Olive White Garvey papers (series 1, sub-series 5-7), and 4 boxes of the Ray Hugh Garvey papers (series 2) were processed in 2007 by Kathleen Rogge, Lela Barnes intern, Kansas Historical Society (Topeka). Rogge created this finding aid that provides detailed information about the collection and combines all 3 processors’ container descriptions.
