Scope and Content

Scope and content:

The Frank Carlson 1946 Campaign Papers include a wide variety of documentation covering the activities and political platform of the Republican Party for the 1946 Kansas gubernatorial campaign.

This collection is divided into two series. Series 1 is dedicated to the various individuals who were either directly or indirectly involved in the Republican campaign. Series 2 is dedicated to various issues or functions of the Carlson for Governor Committee.

These papers originally came from the archival records of the Kansas governor's office for the Carlson administration. Those papers predating Carlson's inauguration were separated and transferred to the manuscripts collection of the Kansas State Historical Society (KSHS). Other campaign materials pertaining to Carlson's second gubernatorial campaign are integrated within the records of Carlson's gubernatorial terms in the state archives holdings of the KSHS. Frank Carlson’s records as a United States senator are in a separate manuscript collection, no. 92.

Contents: Ser. 1. Individuals who were directly or indirectly involved in the 1946 Republican campaign -- ser. 2. Various issues or functions of the Carlson for Governor Committee.
