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 Leaman L. Graves, Company D, 346th Infantry, 91st Division. Graves was killed in action on September 27, 1918. He grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, and graduated from the Oregon Agricultural College in 1918.
