Around 1919, the Kansas State Historical Society and the American Legion solicited biographical information from returning veterans (primarily members of the 35th and 89th infantry divisions) and the families of those who died in service, notably from the Gold Star Mothers. Each veteran or family member was asked to provide letters, photographs, a biography, and military records. This file contains information on Edgar B. Morehouse, Battery A, Headquarters Co., 130th Field Artillery, 35th Division. Edgar is the nephew of George P. Morehouse, Co. B, 9th Battalion, Kansas State Guard. Edgar was a student at Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas, before joining the military.
