Men unassigned

Men unassigned
Date: December 4, 1919
In this document are the names of men who reported to work in the coal field of southeast Kansas during the state takeover of the mines. The Kansas supreme court granted authority to the state of Kansas to operate the mines in November, 1919. This followed a continued labor dispute over wages. Coal miners refused to work for the state following takeover and the governor recruited workers from outside the area to man the mines during this period. This document lists the occupation of the worker and his home address. As evidenced by this document, very few of the men who reported were miners. Though most of the workers came from Kansas, workers also reported from Missouri, Nebraska, and Ohio. The state takeover lasted until mid-December 1919 when union leaders called the regular mine workers back to work.
