Anonymous resident to the governor's wife

Anonymous resident to the governor's wife
Date: August 20, 1963
An anonymous Kansas resident writes the wife of Governor John Anderson Jr. of Topeka concerning a proposed atheist colony near Stockton, Kansas. The author expresses her opposition to the colony and regards it as a plot of communist Russia. Madalyn Murray [O'Hair] of Baltimore, Maryland, proposed the colony after the Supreme Court decision in Murray v. Curlett (1963) declared prayer in schools unconstitutional. Ms. Murray formed Other Americans, Inc. (a Maryland corporation) to advance atheist interests and establish an atheist colony in Kansas. Carl Brown, a farmer near Stockton and former Kansas state senator, served as a director of that corporation. Mr. Brown, an avowed atheist, deeded 160 acres of land near Stockton to the corporation. During the 1950s and 1960s, the national debate over the role of religion in public life centered on the use of prayer in public schools. Many people associated atheists with communists and approached this issue from the larger context of the cold war. Historical Society staff removed the author's name and place of residence from this copy of the letter to comply with her request for privacy.

Irma Law to Governor Frank Hagaman

Irma Law to Governor Frank Hagaman
Creator: Law, Irma
Date: December 15, 1950
Irma Law, Executive Secretary of the Kansas State Nurses' Association (KSNA), of Topeka, Kansas writes Governor Frank L. Hagaman, also of Topeka, concerning the founding of a state civilian defense program. Law volunteers the services of the KSNA and its 2900 members in support of civilian defense. Law encloses a letter she wrote to Dr. F. C. Beelman, Director of the Kansas State Board of Health on the same issue. Law's letter follows the initiation of a United Nations' police action against North Korea in which the United States military played a dominant role. The Korean conflict further strained the already fragile relations between the U. S. and the communist Soviet Union and China. This "cold war" increased fears of a possible atomic world war and renewed interest in domestic programs for civilian defense.
