Governor's Records - Harry H. Woodring Administration - Jan. 12,

Harry H. Woodring Administration
Jan. 12, 1931 - Jan. 9, 1933

The records of Kansas Governor Harry H. Woodring consist of correspondence, proclamations, appointments, messages, petitions and oversized material during his term as governor from 1931 to 1933.

Scope and Content Note

The arrangement and description of the correspondence of the governor's office is structured according to the arrangement, duties, functions and responsibilities of the governor and the Executive branch of the Kansas state government.

The Correspondence Series is subdivided into an Alphabetical File; an Appointments File (because the governor spent a great deal of time appointing people to official government boards, departments and other government offices); a State Agencies File; and a Subject File.

The Alphabetical File contains routine correspondence from either the common, concerned citizen about unimportant subject matter; or from important correspondents, arranged by name.

The State Agencies File contains routine correspondence to and from nearly all of the bureaus of the state government. This is the appropriate subseries for research of state agency activities and history.

The Subject File contains a wide array of files on any and every important subject matter at the time. For example: the 1930s was a decade known for its distraught economic conditions -- the Great Depression. As one would expect, there are folders in the Subject File pertaining to, and labelled Economic Conditions. Likewise, there is another set of folders labelled Unemployment. Another prominent issue of the times was Prohibition, for which there is a subject heading in the Woodring Correspondence Subject File. Researchers investigating important issues of any given era in Kansas' history (or national history) should examine the Subject Files of the Governors' Correspondence.

In nearly all record groups of Governor's Correspondence, there are oversize items. Oversize items are inventoried in the back of each register, giving their original folder location and the oversize storage location where they have been transferred. When examining the folders that held oversize items, the researcher will find a transfer form, identifying the item, and giving information on its oversize location.

Agency Sketch

The office of the Governor of the State of Kansas was established by the State Constitution of 1859 (the Wyandotte Constitution).

According to constitutional mandate, some of the more important duties, functions, responsibilities and bailiwicks of the Kansas governor are as follows: The supreme executive power of the State shall be vested in a Governor, who shall see that the laws are faithfully executed.

The Executive Department shall consist of a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Auditor, Treasurer, Attorney General, and Superintendent of Public Instruction, who shall be chosen by the electors of the State at the time and place of voting for members of the Legislature, and shall hold their offices for the term of two years from the second monday in January, next after their election, and until their successors are elected and qualified.

He may require information in writing from the officers of the Executive Department upon any subject relating to their respective duties.

He may, on extraordinary occasions, convene the Legislature by proclamation, and shall, at the commencement of every session, communicate in writing such information as he may possess in reference to the condition of the State, and recommend such measures as he may deem expedient.

All commissions shall be issued in the name of the State of Kansas; signed by the Governor, counter-signed by the Secretary of State, and sealed with the great seal.

For a complete list of gubernatorial duties, see the Kansas State Constitution (1859), Article I -- Executive.

Biographical Sketch

Harry Hines Woodring was born on May 31, 1887 in Elk City, Kansas, to Hines and Melissa Jane (Cooper) Woodring.

Woodring attended public schools in Elk City, and high school in Independence, Kansas. While still in his youth, Woodring earned pocket money by selling popcorn. By his middle teenage years, he got a job as a janitor in the Elk City Bank. Soon, he was promoted to book keeper, and two years later became assistant cashier.

Woodring dropped out of high school a year before he would have graduated. Instead, he took a one year course in business and commerce at the University of Lebanon in Lebanon, Indiana.

Woodring later moved to Neodesha, where he became the cashier of the First National Bank in 1907. He did not stay at that position long, however. In 1918, soon after the death of his mother, he resigned his position to join the army.

He enlisted on May 11, 1918 as a private, and after a brief time in officer candidate school, Woodring emerged as a lieutenant in the U.S. Tank Corps.

Upon his return to civilian life, Woodring went back to the First National Bank of Neodesha. He quickly climbed the ladder of success there at the F.N.B., becoming its president and later its owner. Woodring had savvy business sense, for he knew that the stock market bubble of 1929 would eventually burst. He sold his banking interests in March of 1929, not long before the crash, and temporarily retired from business life to enter politics.

In 1930, Woodring, with no prior experience, ran for and won the office of governor, defeating Republican Frank Haucke, and Independent John Brinkley. He served in this capacity for two years, then was defeated in his bid for re-election in 1933 to Republican Alf Landon.

Undaunted, Woodring remained in public service from 1933 to 1940 as the Assistant Secretary of War, under President Franklin Roosevelt. Following the death of Secretary George H. Dern in 1936, Woodring became Acting Secretary of War, later to be confirmed to that position. It was during his tenure that the military adopted the practice of competitive bidding as a standard procurement procedure. Also, artillery guns were motorized, semi-automatic guns developed, as well as the development of anti-aircraft weaponry and new tanks built. It was Woodring who led the development of the four-engine B-17, which he called the "Flying Fortress." Also, it was Woodring who recommended the appointment of George C. Marshall as the Army Chief of Staff.

Woodring resigned in June of 1940 because of a dispute with Roosevelt over the deployment of B-17s in Britain while the U.S. was still a neutral country.

Woodring returned to Kansas, and twice more, tried to regain the office of governor. He was defeated in both elections, the first in 1946 to Frank Carlson, the second to Democratic Party nominee George Docking in 1956.

Harry Woodring was a vice president of the Kansas Bankers' Association, he was state commander of the American Legion in 1928, and commander of the Neodesha American Legion Post. He was a Mason and a member of the Church of the Disciples of Christ prior to attending the first Congregational Church of Topeka.

Woodring married Helen Coolidge in 1933. They had three children: Marcus Coolidge (died in 1946), Melissa, and Cooper Coolidge.

Woodring and his wife divorced in 1960. He died at the age of eighty in 1967 and was buried in Topeka.

Administrative Sketch

Most of Woodring's gubernatorial administration centered around the Depression and the problems it caused. Woodring voluntarily cut his salary by ten per cent and appealed to other state employees to do likewise. As a part of his austerity program, he made drastic cut backs in most areas of state government. Woodring's administration worked well with the Republican dominated legislature. He got most of the legislation he wanted, including a reduction in biennial appropriations.

The main features of Woodring's political agenda were tax relief, tighter control on the sale of securities, a permanent Crippled Children's Commission, the requirement of drivers' licenses for motor vehicle operators, a separate Labor Department, and the reduction of utility rates. Woodring's efforts to find markets for Kansas oil met with little success.

Not covered by civil service regulations, Woodring used the Highway Commission as a means of making patronage appointments of his supporters to that bureau. Woodring appointed his campaign manager, Guy T. Helvering as its director, and through him, made appointments to his favored followers.

During his administration, Woodring vetoed two pieces of legislation, one concerning an investigation into the State Highway Commission (it had become the largest state employer, and the state agency with the most money), and a bill concerning capital punishment. It was the second veto that attracted more attention. Kansas, which had allowed for capital punishment since its admission as a state, had repealed that prerogative after thirty years of disuse. Woodring initially stated his support for the bill, but after studying existing historical and sociological data when he concluded that the bill was "unsound in theory."

As governor, Woodring kept his office door open and accessible to the public, even during the busy legislative sessions.

Since Woodring entered the governor's office a bachelor, his unmarried sister, Lida, fulfilled the role of hostess at the governor's mansion. In spite of working long hours, six days a week, Woodring and Lida frequently entertained guests, went horseback riding and attended sporting events -- the Kentucky Derby, in particular.

In the campaign of 1932, Woodring's party was divided by factionalism, while the Republicans, under the leadership of Alf Landon, remained unified. In addition, John Brinkley, the flamboyant "goat gland doctor" candidate, this time got his name on the ballot. In other ways, he and his campaign was much better organized. On election day, Landon received 278,581 votes; Woodring -- 272,944; Brinkley -- 244,607.

From elective office, Woodring entered public service at the national level when President Roosevelt appointed him to be the Assistant Secretary of War in 1933.
