This black and white photograph shows Sam Brownback speaking at the DS&O Rural Electric Cooperative's annual meeting. He was Kansas Secretary of Agriculture at that time. DS&O Electric Cooperative was established during the Great Depression as part of the federal recovery effort to bring the advantages and economic stimulus of electric power to rural Kansas. In 1991, Smoky Valley Electric Cooperative in Lindsborg, Kansas, merged with DS&O, adding to the Cooperative's coverage area and member base. DS&O Rural Electrical Cooperative's office is located in Solomon, Kansas. It was named DS&O because members were from Dickinson, Saline, and Ottawa counties. Brownback was later elected to the U. S. Senate and as Governor of Kansas.
