Reminiscence of the 1893 legislative war

Bull, Floyd R.

In this reminiscence, Floyd R. Bull, a member of the El Dorado company of the Kansas National Guard, recalls his involvment in the Legislative (or Populist) War of 1893. During this conflict, violence broke out between the competing legislative houses--the Republican (Douglass) House and the Populist (Dunsmore) House--prompting Populist Governor Lorenzo Lewelling to call the National Guard to the capitol. On February 25 the Kansas Supreme Court affirmed the validity of the Republican House, thus ending the "war." This reminiscence is a copy of an earlier statement by Bull, written in 1938.

These three black and white photographs show scenes from Kansas Governor Fred Hall's administration including photographs of Hall with Boy Scouts.

He campaigned for governor in 1954 on a platform calling for reform to clean up Topeka, Kansas, similarly to President Eisenhower?s efforts to clean up Washington, D. C.
