400,000 images!

Posted by Jocelyn Wehr (Digital Archivist) on May 21, 2014

The Kansas Historical Society is excited to announce that we've reached the 400,000 image milestone on Kansas Memory! The 400,000th image is a letter written on August 30, 1918 from Miss Jennie B. Momyer to Helen McKenna Mulvane, state chair of the Woman’s Committee of the Council of National Defense. The committee coordinated women’s activities and resources for national defense during World War I

Momyer, a former superintendent of Barton County schools, writes to ask Mulvane to send her information about the civilian school for nurses. Momyer states that she knows women in Barton County who are too young to attend the recently established Army School of Nursing but want to pursue training to help the American war effort. The entire collection can be found here

The digitization of the Council of National Defense Woman’s Committee collection was paid for through the Margot R. Swovelan Endowment Fund. Margot spent her entire career at the Kansas Historical Society working primarily with the newspaper collection. We are grateful for the generous gift from Margot's family, her husband, Ed Swovelan, and her brother, Eric Rinehart.
