Roy Hennigh to Arthur Capper

Hennigh, Roy

Roy Hennigh, owner of a grocery store in Sabetha, Nemaha County, wrote this letter to the governor concerning a recent visit to his store by a female deputy factory inspector. According to Hennigh, this inspector informed him that his two teenage daughters could not work in his store on the weekends according to the child labor laws. Hennigh argues that he does not officially employ his children, or any other children, because ?they help me just as anybody?s children should.? He believes it is ?very poor judgement to enact a law which forbids parents to use the help of their own children.? He also takes issue with the fact that a female inspector evaluated his business. P. J. McBride, Commissioner of Labor and Industry, replied to this letter on December 12, 1917.

Kansas National Guard soldiers on duty during the coal miners' strike

These National Guard soldiers are standing by a tent near the coal mines. On November 1, 1919, over 10,000 coal miners went on strike in southeast Kansas for a six-hour day, five-day work week, and a 60 percent wage raise. When the strike occurred the state had only a two week supply of coal. The state took charge of the mines, arbitrated futilely, and then called for 1,000 volunteers to replace the miners. During November and December 10,000 college and ex-service men responded. Governor Henry J. Allen and the Kansas National Guard, Fourth Regiment reported for duty as well. The strike ended on December 10, 1919, and the miners were ordered back to work.
