Ida M. Walker

Here are two photographs of Ida M. Walker who represented Norton County, District 101 in the Kansas House of Representatives from 1921 through 1923. In 1920, just after the 19th Amendment was ratified, Ida M. Walker was one of only 33 women nationwide elected to a state legislature. That year Kansas boasted four woman legislators, the second highest in the country. The three other legislators were Minnie L. Grinstead, Nellie Cline, and Minnie J. Minnich. Born in a sod house in Jewell County, Walker attended public schools before becoming a teacher herself. Walker took advantage of the few leadership roles available to women, serving as State President of both the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) and the Federation of Women's Clubs, the State Chairman of the Belgian Relief Fund women's section, and as Sunday School Superintendent in the Methodist Church.

Joseph B. Tomlinson

This black and white photograph shows Joseph B. Tomlinson, (1861-1922). Tomlinson, a native of Ohio, settled in Ottawa County, Kansas in 1881, to teach school and study law in the office of D.C. Chipman in Minneapolis, Kansas. He passed the bar, in 1890, and devoted his time and energy to up-holding the law and defending citizens' rights. In 1891, Kansas Governor William Stanley appointed Tomlinson warden of the Kansas State Penitentiary in Lansing, Kansas. During his brief tenure as warden, Tomlinson successfully managed to keep over 280 convicts from striking in the penitentiary coal mines without violence or outside assistance. He resigned from the warden's position, in 1901, to return to private life. In 1903, he moved to Independence, Kansas.
