State Industrial School for Boys, Topeka, Kansas

This silent film documents the State Industrial School for Boys of Topeka, Kansas, in 1935 and depicts all aspects of the institution's educational, health, recreational, vocational and boarding programs. A segment of the film shows Governor Alfred M. Landon visiting the school and making a speech. The school opened in 1881 and sought to reform boys under the age of sixteen who had committed criminal acts. The school taught boys to be farmers, dairymen, tailors, carpenters, linemen, cobblers, barbers, cooks, waiters, machinists, and engineers.
