K. L. Browne to Governor Edward Hoch

Browne, K. L.

K. L. Browne of Kansas City, Kansas, writes Governor Edward W. Hoch of Topeka concerning the segregation of Kansas City (Kans.) High School. Browne requests the Governor sign a bill recently passed by the legislature that would segregate the school by building a separate building for black children. The letter claims most white citizens favor passage of the bill. Mr. Browne argues that the mixed high schools in Kansas City, Kansas have driven many Kansans to move to Kansas City, Missouri where high schools were segregated, particularly those families moving from the country to the city. The letter claims that Kansas is losing both good citizens and revenue to Missouri due to mixed race schooling. He also claims that elementary schools in Kansas were segregated for thirty years without difficulty. Governor Hoch signed the bill February 22, 1905. See C. M. Moates to Governor Edward Hoch, February 21, 1905.

Kansas State Board of Health letterpress book

Crumbine, Samuel J. (Samuel Jay), 1862-1954

Dr. Samuel Crumbine kept this letter press book of outgoing correspondence during the first two years of his tenure as secretary of the Kansas State Board of Health. The letters proceed in chronological order. A partial alphabetical index to correspondents is available at the back of the volume. The letters in this volume were "pressed" from the originals onto copy paper using water and a heavy weight at the time of their creation. The impression process was a crude form of preservation and was prone to error. Too much or too little water, or weight, could result in a poor copy. Many of the letters in this volume will be difficult to read, and some may not be legible, but they accurately reflect the condition of the letter pressings. Some pressings that were impossible to read in grayscale were scanned in color to help bring out the text.

C. M. Moates to Governor Edward Hoch

Moates, C. M.

C. M. Moates, M.D. of Leavenworth (Leavenworth County) writes Governor Edward W. Hoch of Topeka (Shawnee County) concerning the segregation of Kansas City (Kans.) High School. Moates requests the Governor veto a bill recently passed by the Kansas Legislature which would segregate the school by building a separate building for black children. The letter reminds the Governor of the Republican Party's traditional stand for Negro rights, cites the dominance of the Republican Party in Kansas, and charges the Kansas Republican Party as behaving like Democrats. The letter notes that the Democratic dominated legislature in Arkansas was considering similar legislation. The letter also cites the efforts of John Brown and Daniel Reed Anthony to make Kansas a free state. Moates claims at some point the Republic Party will need Negro votes and that this law will drive Negroes from the party. He also claims high school segregation will incite trouble between the races. Governor Hoch signed the bill on February 22, 1905. See K. L. Browne to Governor Edward Hoch, February 18, 1905.
