Kansas Emergency Relief Committee, bulletin 307

Kansas Emergency Relief Committee

The Kansas Emergency Relief Committee was created in July 1932 to obtain and administer federal emergency loans made available to states through Herbert Hoover's Emergency Relief and Construction Act of 1932. President Franklin Roosevelt expanded on this act with the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) in 1933, leading the Kansas committee to change its name to the Kansas Emergency Relief Committee (KERC). Under the direction of Kansas's new governor, Alf Landon, the KERC managed direct and work relief programs in Kansas including emergency education, transient relief, rural rehabilitation, drought relief, and a slew of public works projects including the construction of farm ponds and lakes, and the renovation and construction of public buildings, roads, and quarries. This bulletin contains a report on county poor farms and examines their social and economic cost. In 1934, 77 out of the 105 Kansas counties had a county poor farm for the aged and ill. John Stutz was executive director of the KERC.

Kansas Girls Industrial School. Graduating into society

This silent film documents the State Industrial School for Girls in Beloit, Kansas, and depicts every aspect of the school's educational, vocational, and boarding programs. The Women's Christian Temperance Union established the school in 1889 and it was later acquired by the state. The purpose of the school was to reform economically or socially disadvantaged girls between twelve and sixteen years old. The school taught sewing, weaving, cooking, gardening and horticulture, wood carving, clay modeling, and the general duties of the household. The film showcases the following programs and activities: healthcare and hospital, housework, laundry, sewing, bakery, cooking, religious instruction, student government, dancing, table tennis, roller skating, Independence Day parade, flag drill, folk dance, track and field, and patriotic instruction. At the time the film was made the school included seven housing units (or cottages), a schoolhouse and farm buildings on 200 acres. Directed by Grace A. Miles. Photographed by Joseph A. Thompson.

Iowa, Sac and Fox Presbyterian Mission, Doniphan County, Kansas

This is an exterior view of the Iowa, Sac and Fox Presbyterian Mission erected in 1846. It was three stories high with a belfry that made the total height 52 feet, and it was 107 feet long by 37 feet wide. The mission closed in 1863. From 1863 to 1866, the mission functioned as the Indian Orphanage Institute, but this new role was limited by a proliferation of similar institutions in the Midwest. After the institute closed in 1866, the mission sat empty until 1868 when the west portion of the building was razed, leaving about 40 percent of the original structure. The razed portion was to be used in the construction of a building at Highland University. Since 1963, the Kansas Historical Society has administered this property as a state historic site. Recently it has been rehabilitated as a museum to showcase the arts and history of the emigrant tribes of Native Americans in northeastern Kansas.
