Isabella Barnes to Governor Edward Hoch

Barnes, Isabella

Mrs. Isabella Barnes of Liberal, Kansas, writes Governor Edward Hoch of Topeka concerning her wish to wear men's clothing. Mrs. Barnes states that she would like to wear men's clothing to help her obtain suitable employment and avoid unwanted insults from men. She has contacted the U. S. Attorney General at Washington D. C. concerning this issue and asks Governor Hoch if she would be liable to arrest and if there was not some way for a woman to receive permission to wear men's clothes. Isabella's concerns illustrate many women's efforts to transcend narrowly defined social and sexual roles in the early twentieth century.


Kansas State Board of Pharmacy examination questions

Board of Pharmacy (Kansas)

These images show pages of the Kansas State Board of Pharmacy's examination questions for obtaining a license as a pharmacist. The three sections of the examinations are labeled Materia Medica, Pharmacy, and Chemistry. The examination given in 1889 contains several questions about medicinal plants and their habitats. The examination given in Fort Scott in 1902 shows questions on converting measurements using both the apothecary system and the metric system, suggesting an increasing level of modern scientific methods in the field of pharmacy. Funds to underwrite the digitization of these examination questions, Board of Pharmacy Reports (Item #218637), and the Board of Pharmacy Rules and Regulations (Item #214924) were provided by the Jere Matchett Memorial Fund. This donation also funded the scanning of photographs of drug stores across Kansas to include them in Kansas Memory.
