William Eugene Stanley

Baldwin, Fred

This set of cabinet cards show William Eugene Stanley, 1844-1910. Stanley, a native of Ohio, settles in Jefferson County, Kansas in 1870 to practice law. He enters public service in 1871, by serving as the Jefferson County attorney from 1871 to 1872. A few years later he becomes the Sedgwick County attorney from 1874 to 1880. In 1880, he makes a political bid for a seat in the Kansas House of Representatives and serves one term as a Republican from the ninety-second district from 1881 to 1883. Stanley resumes his political career in 1898, when he is elected the fifteenth governor of Kansas and was re-elected in 1901.

William Alfred Peffer

Leonard, J. H.

William Alfred Peffer was the first Populist senator elected to U.S. Congress. He was born in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, on September 10, 1831. As a young man he traveled across the country, living in California, Indiana, Missouri, and Illinois. After the outbreak of Civil War, Peffer enlisted in the 83rd Illinois Infantry, entering as a private and working his way up to the rank of second lieutenant. He read law while still in the military, and after his discharge in 1865 he was admitted to the bar and began practicing law in Clarksville, Tennessee. Five years later he moved to Fredonia, Kansas, where he established another practice and edited the Fredonia Journal. Peffer served as a state senator from 1874 to 1876, and during his tenure he relocated to Coffeyville, Kansas, where he assumed editorial control of the Coffeyville Journal. Then, in 1881, he launched the Populist publication Kansas Farmer, one of his best-known contributions to this agrarian reform movement. Peffer was instrumental in the creation of the People?s (Populist) Party, serving as a Populist U.S. Senator from 1891 to 1897 and running again (unsuccessfully) for re-election in 1896. Two years later, he ran an unsuccessful campaign for Governor of Kansas, losing the election to Republican William Stanley. Peffer died in 1912 in Grenola, Kansas, at the age of 81.
