Governor's Records - John Anderson, Jr. Administration, January 9, 1961

John Anderson, Jr. Administration
January 9, 1961 - January 11, 1965

The records of Kansas Governor John Anderson, Jr. consist of correspondence, appointments, state agency and subject files during his term as governor from 1961 to 1965.

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 Kansas state government.

The record group of governors' papers is divided according to administration. Each administration is a Correspondence Series, and is divided into an Alphabetical Subseries, an Appointments Subseries, a State Agencies Subseries, and a Subject Subseries.

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

The Appointments Subseries contains letters of endorsement from private individuals recommending others for government appointments, as well as the governor's letters of appointments to fill a wide variety of state offices. In this record group, the governor's appointment file is arranged chronologically.

The State Agencies Subseries 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. Variations in arrangement of these files typically takes place from one administration to another--as the structure of the state government changes.

The Subject Subseries contains a wide array of files on any and every important subject matter at the time. Researchers investigating important issues of any given era in Kansas' history (or national history) should examine the Subject Suberies 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 new location.

Legislation. The Legislature, being the largest entity in the law-making process, occupied a large segment of this series. The bills passed into laws, deal with a wide variety of subject matter – subject matter which may also be inventoried in the Subject Subseries. The papers in the Legislature files are located there because they are identified by their bill number (e.g. Legislature 1963. House Bill 233). Papers dealing with the same subject matter, but are identified by subject title are located in the Subject Subseries (e.g. School District Unification).

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

John Anderson, Jr., was born on May 8, 1917, near Olathe, Kansas, to John and Ora Bookout Anderson. Anderson graduated from Olathe High School in 1935. From there, he went on to Kansas State College of Agriculturea and Applied Science, and later transferred to the University of Kansas. In 1943 he graduated from the University of Kansas, and from the K.U. law school the following year. Anderson did not qualify for military service during the World War II years because of physical reasons. Instead, he spent two years, from 1944 to 1946, on the staff of Federal Judge Walter A. Huxman. Later, in 1946, Anderson opened his own law practice in Olathe.

Soon after establishing his law practice, Anderson entered politics by running for county attorney for Johnson County as a Republican. Anderson won this election, as well as two following elections and served in this capacity until 1953.

Beginning in 1952, Anderson sought to elevate his political career by running for a seat in the Kansas Senate. Again he was successful, holding this office until March 1, 1956. At that time, he was appointed to fill the unexpired term as attorney general. Once in this elective office, Anderson won the two following elections in 1956 and 1958.

By 1960, Anderson was ready for bigger ambitions, and entered the race for the office of governor in the election of that year. He defeated the Democratic incumbent, George Docking, 511,534 to 402,261 (the Prohibition candidate received 8,727). In keeping with his tradition for winning elections in pairs, Anderson also won the 1962 gubernatorial election. Anderson and his family became the first governor of Kansas to occupy Cedar Crest, which had just been renovated at a cost of one hundred thousand dollars.

In 1964, Anderson chose not to seek re-election, but instead, went back to his law practice in Olathe. He remained active in public service after leaving the governor's office, serving as an attorney for the Board of Healing Arts and the Kansas Turnpike Authority. In addition, he served as the director of the Citizens' Conference on State Legislatures from 1965 to 1972. He was nominated for federal judgeships on a number of occasions, but was never appointed. Again, in 1972 he tried for the Republican Party nomination for governor, but was defeated by Morris Kay.

In his personal life, Anderson married Arlene A. Auchard and had three children; John Anderson III, Kerry Diane, and King David.

Administrative Sketch

By the time John Anderson was inaugurated into the governor's office the state of Kansas had acquired Cedar Crest, a new residence for its chief executive and had remodeled the structure at a cost of $100,000. Anderson was the first of Kansas' governors to occupy Cedar Crest, which has been the official governor's residence ever since.

Over all, Anderson's agenda prioritized the streamlining of state government in Kansas. Anderson's bureaucratic modernization effort combined some state agencies and re-organized several state boards and commissions. His agenda also included the establishment of a combined psychiatric and medical hospital on the grounds of the Kansas Reception and Diagnostic Center. Anderson pursued mandatory sentencing for convicted drunk drivers, however, the legislature would not accept his plan for dealing with drunk drivers. In addition, Anderson proposed a bill which would have required automobile drivers above the age of forty to have annual eye examinations. A few Kansans wrote to Anderson on this issue: all denouncing it. Kansas already had a social program for children of low income families. Anderson established a new fund for this service separate from the general fund so that its account could receive federal matching funds. He also sought and achieved alterations to the pardon and parole system.

Anderson's biggest, longest lasting and most controversial reforms were in the area of education. It was during his term that the state of Kansas established unified school districts. Prior to that time, each rural school was its own school district. School district unification enabled the new, larger districts to utilize their funds more effectively. Another major issue of the time concerned the amount of money the state was appropriating for education. Citizens all across Kansas wrote the governor urging an increase in per pupil spending. Folders containing these letters constitute the largest subseries in this series. As it happened, Anderson was able to convince the legislature to increase the per-pupil spending allocations. Other educational efforts included the hiring of a state school library consultant, and implementation of a comprehensive educational survey to determine the state's needs in education. Finally, he brought the University of Wichita into the state Board of Regents system.

The centennial of the admission of Kansas into the Union took place during Anderson's term, and the governor kept files of concerning its anniversary. The files containing these records and correspondence are indicative of the business behind the orchestration of a large scale celebration. In other historical matters, President Eisenhower left the White House in January of 1961, and began plans for the establishment of the Eisenhower Center is Abeline at that time.

Some of the events taking place outside of the state of Kansas (and even internationally) had an influence on the state, its government and citizens. In out-of-state matters, the early 1960s was a time of economic growth and development, and Kansans enjoyed the increasing standard of living that other Americans were realizing.

Anderson's tenure in office was in the early 1960s and one of the signs of the times was the perceived threat of the Soviet Union and the Cold War in international politics. Ordinary Kansans felt this threat and called upon the governor to do everything in his power to halt the spread of Soviet communism. The communist party had, in fact, been outlawed in other states (Arizona and Arkansas, for example). Of all of the issues of the time, the threat of Soviet expansion and spread of communism probably caused more anxiety and fear than any other. The letters from individual Kansans and organizations such as the Veterans and Citizens Committee Against Communism and the National Indignation Convention reveal a level of anxiety bordering on paranoia. Files on communism exist in this record group, as well as files for the related topics of bomb shelters and fallout shelters (listed separately).

Though the plight of minorities was only just beginning to be recognized (nationally, the Civil Rights Act became law in 1964), files on race relations and increased minority staffing in the Republican Party indicate that the white establishment was responding to these issues. Many people of a variety of backgrounds wrote to the governor to increase funding for the Kansas Commission on Civil Rights, and the written evidence reveals that Anderson himself was committed to improving race relations. Anderson also kept files for the Kansas Association for Colored Women, the Negro Progress Exposition, and NAACP.

In 1962 the Supreme Court of the United States handed down a decision concerning prayer in public schools. This decision generated alarm among the more conservative segments of American and Kansas society, and several concerned Kansans wrote to the governor expressing their opinions on this matter.

At the time of John F. Kennedy's assassination, foreign consuls and representatives responded by sending their condolences to the governor. Though the quantity is not great, it is relevant to the fact that the governor of Kansas dealt with a wide variety of issues, and received correspondence from all over the world.
