Vern Miller

Rorabaugh & Millsap Studio

This black and white photograph shows Kansas Attorney General Vern Miller. A native of Wichita, Kansas, and a veteran of World War II, he began his career as sheriff of Sedgwick County, Kansas, (1964-1969). As sheriff, he enforced the law in a aggressive hands-on manner by putting himself in the same dangers that patrol officers faced. This style of law enforcement, quickly earned him the nickname "Supercop" and "Supersheriff". Miller's ambitions to effectively enforce Kansas laws, would elect him in 1970 as the first Democratic attorney general in over eighty years. During his tenure as attorney general, Miller's "supercop" mentality continued as he enforced the drug, alcohol, and gambling laws in the state. Miller's relentless efforts to up hold the law reelected him in 1972 when he carried all 105 counties. Before the close of his second term, Miller 's political career took a new direction with his candidacy for Kansas Governor. During the 1974 election, he campaign on the emphasis of law enforcement rather than the details of state government. In the end, Miller could not make the transition to governor, and lost to Republican candidate Robert Bennett. With the loss, Miller closed out his career as attorney general and returned to Wichita, Kansas, to practice law.

During 1882, Diggs and her husband published the newspaper Kansas Liberal, and beginning in 1890 she was the associate editor of the Alliance Advocate. As a radical reformer seeking to wipe out injustice, Diggs also allied herself with the Farmer?s Alliance, aiding in the creation of the People's (Populist) Party, serving on the Populist National Committee, and supporting the fusion of the Populist and Democratic parties in the 1898 election. Throughout this time she continued to work actively for women?s voting rights and served in the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association. In 1898, she was appointed the state librarian of Kansas, and she was also elected president of Kansas Press Women in 1905. Diggs moved to New York City in 1906, where she worked on two publications: The Story of Jerry Simpson (1908) and Bedrock (1912).
