Kansas Governor's Records - Andrew F. Schoeppel Administration - Jan. 11, 1943 - Jan. 12, 1947

Andrew F. Schoeppel Administration
Jan. 11, 1943 - Jan. 12, 1947

The records of Kansas Governor Andrew F. Schoeppel consist of correspondence, subject files, appointments, proclamations, messages and oversized material during his term as governor from 1937 to 1939.

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. 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

Andrew F. Schoeppel was born on November 23, 1894 on his parents' farm near Claflin, Kansas. His parents were George J. and Anna (Phillip) Schoeppel.

Schoeppel attended grammar school in Ness County and Ransom High School. After graduation in 1915, he enrolled in the University of Kansas in 1916. With American entrance into World War I, Schoeppel left K.U. and enlisted in the Naval Reserve Flying force. After the war, he enrolled in law school at the University of Nebraska, and received an LL.B. from there in 1922. While in law school, Schoeppel played football for the U. N. team and won an "honorable mention" from Walter Camp's All-American Team.

Following his admission to the Kansas Bar in 1923, he established his law practice in Ness City, in a partnership styled Peters & Schoeppel; later to become Schoeppel & Smith. In Ness City, Schoeppel served as City Attorney, County Attorney and was elected mayor of Ness City. In addition, he also served as chairman of the Kansas State Corporation Commission.

In his first experience in state-level political campaigns, he was drafted against his wishes, by the Republican Party for state representative for Ness County. He lost this election because he made no effort to campaign, though the margin of votes was very small. After this experience, Schoeppel vowed it would never happen again.

In 1942, Schoeppel ran for governor. Among all the Republicans in the primary election, Schoeppel was the least experienced in politics, and at that phase of the election, was considered a dark horse. Nevertheless, he won the nomination. Once past the primary, Newsweek stated "It looks like an easy victory for the clean cut and respected lawyer from a small city in Western Kansas." Still, this victory over William H. Burke was a close one, with a margin of only 7,000 votes.

The 1944 election was a different matter. This time it was a Republican landslide in the most sweeping Republican victory at any time in the state's history.

In addition to his gubernatorial duties, Schoeppel also served as the chairman of the Interstate Oil Compact Commission. This commission was formed in 1935 to deal with the problems resulting from oil and gas industries not under the control of either federal or state authority. This body was approved by Congress in 1935 and ratified by sixteen states by 1945.

After leaving the governor's office in January of 1947, he re-entered private legal practice in Wichita in the firm of Foulston, Siefkin, Schoeppel, Bartlett & Powers, which specialized in corporate, insurance, oil, gas and real property law.

Schoeppel re-entered politics in 1948 in a bid for the United States Senate. In another stunning victory, he defeated his democratic opponent by almost 90,000 votes. In the Senate, the seat he filled was that of Arthur Capper. For the most part, Schoeppel voted along party lines on most issues debated in Congress. One notable occasion on which he left parties lines, was his support for Taft as the Republican Party nominee for the 1952 Presidential race.

In his private life, Schoeppel married Marie Thomsen. He was a member of a wide variety of fraternities, and civic organizations, including the Masons, the Shriners, Knight Commander of the Court of Honor, the American Foreign Legion and the Forty Eight. He received an honorary LL.D. from Baker University in 1946. While in college he was a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity, and was elected to the Phi Alpha Delta honorary law society. He was a member of the Southwestern Kansas Bar Association, the Kansas Bar Association, and the American Bar Association. He was also a member of the Ness City Lions Club, the Rotary Club and men's honorary society known as the Innocents. In addition, he served on the Ness City School Board, and the Chamber of Commerce.

Andrew F. Schoeppel died on January 21, 1962 in the Bethesda Naval Hospital, Bethesda, Maryland.

Administrative Sketch

With the advance of time, the duties and range of issues facing the governor increased. By World War II , the governor's office faced a variety of priorities never before seen in the office of the governor of the State of Kansas.

Governor Schoeppel's relationship with the State Legislature was virtually non-existent. Schoeppel was one of the few governors who provided no leadership for the law-making body. For that reason, the Legislature (one dominated by Republicans) ended up dividing into cliques and factions, each with their own set of priorities, each doing what it could to advance its own agenda at the expense of cooperation of the others.

Prohibition -- so long an issue in this traditionally dry state -- became another hot point for the governor. An investigation conducted by a federal grand jury determined that more than four hundred wholesale and retail liquor stamps had been sold to Kansans. Schoeppel charged that federal authorities had not been acting with any effort of cooperation with state law enforcement officials when they conducted their raids on liquor stores in Kansas. However, the federal grand jury's report revealed that Kansas state officials, including the governor, were simply not enforcing prohibition laws in Kansas.

With the advance of time, Kansas began to shift, in terms of employment, from predominance in agriculture, to industry. Accordingly, labor issues grew in importance. Schoeppel's policies toward labor is generally thought to be antithetical, while he was generally more supportive and sympathetic to business. Schoeppel signed a bill which prohibited sit down strikes (actually, a common policy nation-wide during World War II), required that union agents be licensed, and required labor unions to issue financial reports to the state.

Though a Kansas statute permitting execution of felonious criminals was passed in 1935, Kansas had not executed any criminals since the nineteenth century. That was to change in 1944 when the governor decided against banning the execution of Fred L. Brady, a habitual criminal convicted of murder. To complicate matters, the Lansing State Penitentiary warden, Milton F. Amrine, refused to witness the execution. Schoeppel had no choice but to replace Amrine with a new warden, Robert H. Hudspeth, so that the execution could proceed, which it did in February of 1944.

These issues aside, the event which dominated the governor's time and attention more than any other was World War II. Though Kansas was far from the war front, it was active in its role as the "home front," and the demands which were made on Kansas were pervasive.

In the governor's correspondence, there are three document cases with correspondence and other records entitled Subject File: War Effort, which in turn are subdivided into a variety of classified issues. In addition to this abundant supply of records, there are other files that concern the war in a more indirect way. Files of documents originating from the United States government pertain mostly to war issues.

The most immediately impact of the war on Kansas was the demand for labor, which mostly affected farming operations and agricultural output. Rationing was the norm throughout the state, the country, and all countries involved in the war. Kansas was one of the states which held prisoners of war; and it can be safely said that the treatment of P.O.W.s in Kansas was humane; even to a fault.

The following excerpts from letters addressed to the governor give an idea of the nature of the situation in Kansas at the time of the war.

"Dear Governor:
If the Government intends to take all the young boys in the armed forces then it might be a helpful policy to let some of the older men in the service out to take their place. By older men I mean those above forty-four (44) or even forty (40). There is no question but what these men would really do their country more good on farms or defense works. Its not my intention to cast any reflection on a man just because he is over forty. Its just the case of putting an individual where be can do the most good.

Yours Truly,

E. A. Shaw"

"Dear Mr. Shaw:
Your letter addressed to Governor Schoeppel has been referred to me for acknowledgment and we wish to thank you for it.

The Governor and the Adjutant General are making a careful study of the question regarding farm labor and are endeavoring to get something accomplished which will be fair to the farmers, as well as to the military service. It is expected that some deferment will be gained for farm help, at least for this coming harvest.

Yours very Truly,

W. F. Turrentine, Jr.
Secretary to the Governor"1

"Dear Governor:
I think most of us are somewhat disgusted with the way the rationing system had been working. Too much of our supplies have been and are now being shipped to other counties.

Another grievance the citizens of the United States have to bear is the high price charged for much of our necessaries of life. In some instances more than three times as high as it was before the war. Why? There are no more people in our own country, with our soldiers in the field to be fed, than there were before the war. Is some of our... sugar and coal, being sent to countries besides our allies? Is there any profiteering now being carried on?

It is plainly evident that the price-fixing board has failed to do its duty.

Very Truly,

Melvin J. Wheeler"2

"Governor Schoeppel

May I call to your attention an article in the Wichita Beacon of Wednesday August 30 [1944], concerning the "coddling" of German prisoners of war at Peabody Kans.
The situation at Peabody is disgusting to anyone who has the slightest conception of the way in which our boys are treated by their Nazi captors.

It is important that this coddling of prisoners be stopped at once. If present conditions prevail much longer these men will believe that we Americans have gone "soft" already and they will be inspired to take part in starting another war after they have lost this one.

As governor of the State of Kansas and as a citizen of the United States it is your duty and I am confident that you will see that this situation is remedied at once or notify the proper authorities to take immediate action in this matter.

Sincerely,

Miss Betty Dickman3

When the war was over, Schoeppel ushered the state into a new era of unprecedented prosperity. World War II, for all of the destruction it caused, pulled the nation, and the state of Kansas, out of the Great Depression and started a new era with a much higher standard of living. As the war was approaching an end, Governor Schoeppel made these remarks in his second inaugural address on January 8, 1945:

"Our nation is at war -- and events of recent weeks have shown us that the road to victory is long, costly and terrible.

We have sent our boys and girls; we have produced from our farms and factories; we have given of our time, our money, and our efforts. Kansas has met every call that has come -- and Kansas will continue to meet them until this war is over.

Your state government has played its part as well. Despite the difficulties that it has faced, it has attempted to represent the people of this state as faithfully and as efficiently as possible. I trust that it is not too much to claim that the ability of Kansas to do her part on the war effort has been enhanced by the sympathetic assistance of her state government. To give such aid has been and will continue to be, the constant purpose of her officials. Other things are really secondary. Today we have one purpose and one objective -- the winning of the war and the speedy and safe return of our loved ones.

Following the war will come many other problems. The re-adjustment to peace-time pursuits will likewise be difficult. Our returning service man and women must be welcomed home, not only with parades and public receptions, but with genuine opportunities and a real place in our economic, social and political life. Our great war plants must be converted in the greatest possible degree to the manufacture of the goods and commodities of peace."4

When the war ended, and millions of service personnel began returning stateside, a few things became immediately apparent: 1) compensatory services promised to men in the military would have to be paid out, as had been done for veterans of WWI, and 2) There was an acute shortage of housing. During the Depression, large, extended families crowded into single family dwellings, in order to save expenses. By the end of World War II, it became obvious that existing housing was simply inadequate. The demand for housing being much greater than the supply, the price for rental houses went up sharply.

In May of 1945, William Monypeny, Chairman of the Veterans Rehabilitation Committee, wrote to the Governor on the matter of providing returning veterans with the benefits they needed.

"Dear Governor Andy:

We are very much concerned here in Winfield over this whole matter of getting prepared for our returning men and women who are now in service.

We hardly know where to start since the state set-up is not too clear to us and since we have heard of no attempt being made to put into operation the recently passed legislation on veteran rehabilitation.

With the European war over and millions of our men returning to civil life, we feel that some definite plans need to be made in the very near future in the way of preparing for the matter of handling jobs, advising men as to their right in connection with the G. I. Bill and the Vocational Rehabilitation Law, etc.

The whole thing is rather confused, Andy, and if you can offer us any suggestions on how we might proceed here so that we can take advantage of both the federal and state set-ups so as best to be able to handle our returning veterans of this community, we would appreciate any information you can give us in this direction.

Very truly yours

Wm. Monypeny"

"Dear Bill:

I hope to be under way next week on the veterans organization setup as provided by our Kansas statute. I know that several departments of the Federal Government have attempted to move in on certain phases of this, which to my way of thinking is all right. Ours is to be a co-ordinating and service agency to render through our state setup the finest type of progressive, co-operative activity possible.

Some of the communities are organizing a veterans council which can materially aid and assist all veterans as it relates itself to the state and federal setups and it would prove exceedingly helpful to our state organization as a state contact in our community and certainly should expedite all of our efforts in behalf of the veterans in your area.

Kindest regards,

Governor"5

"Dear Sir:

We need your help badly. Our landlord has already raised our rent 30% effective August 1. As poor working people we, like many thousands, cannot pay it.

Will you please make it a state law, as some states have already done, that the rent cannot be boosted above the June 30th price.

Very Sincerely

Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Collings"

"Dear Mr. and Mrs. Collings:

I wish to acknowledge receipt of your letter addressed to Governor Schoeppel relative to the rent control suggestion. However, nothing can be done along this line until our Legislature meets in January as or present laws do not permit any legal action by our Governor.

Yours very truly,

W. F. Turrentine, Jr.
Secretary to the Governor"
