In this letter to Governor Capper, Adjutant General Huffman reports the findings from his visit to Camp Funston. Ordered by Governor Capper to inspect Camp Funston in response to complaints from the family members of men ill at Funston's hospital, Huffman reports that "every means possible was furnished by General Wood, that my inspection could be made thorough and complete." In his report, Huffman details that 22 buildings were used as temporary hospitals during the influenza outbreak that spread throughout the U.S., and the world, beginning in the spring of 1918.
