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 Venus Arthur Scales, Company C, Battalion Number 1. Scales was sent to Camp Funston and then on to Camp Dodge, Iowa. While there, he was found to be physically unfit and was then sent to North Dakota to help with the wheat harvest. He died from influenza at a private home on October 23, 1919.
