Governor Harry Hines Woodring to F.J. Aufdemberge

Woodring, Harry Hines, 1887-1967

Governor Harry Woodring of Topeka, Kansas, replies to a letter from the mayor of Lincoln (Lincoln County), F. J. Aufdemberge. The mayor's letter posses a solution to the high number of unemployed men in the state. He suggests that women whose husbands are employed should be required to resign and let unemployed men have their jobs, especially in the case of women teachers employed in high schools. The Governor generally agrees but declines the involvement of state government, favoring instead control by each institution or community. The Governor concurs that the American Legion may be able to sway public opinion in favor of such resignations. Kansas experienced a dramatic increase in unemployment between 1930-1933. Local work programs failed to address the problem. In July 1932, Governor Woodring applied for federal aid and created the Kansas Emergency Relief Committee to administer the federal programs. See F. J. Aufdemberge to Governor Harry Woodring, March 10 1932.

This is a Friendship Fan quilt pieced of cotton fabrics, many of them feed sacking. Quilt is made up of 30 square blocks, each featuring a fan with eight arms radiating from a gold quarter-circle. One arm on each fan block has an embroidered name, except for two blocks reading "W.I.O.N." and "1936." Hand quilted in grid and scallop designs, with gold cotton binding and muslin backing. The quilt belonged to Hazel Hughes (1894-1994), and was made in rural Gove County, Kansas, by members of her W.I.O.N. club (Women in Our Neighborhood). This social and needlework club met frequently throughout the 1930s. The quilt may have been made to commemorate Hughes' tenure as president in 1936.
