Santa Fe Demonstration Train

Santa Fe Demonstration Train
Creator: Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad Company
Date: July 21--August 2, 1930 and August 24--September 5, 1931
These posters advertise Santa Fe demonstration trains traveling in Kansas in 1930 and 1931. The purpose of the 1930 train (8 cars) was to present a plan for higher profits on wheat farms. Tom L. Bair, the State's champion wheat grower, was part of the 1930 train. It's travel dates were July 21 through August 2, 1930. The 1931 train (9 cars) was designed to present a plan for more profits in the beef cattle industry. The 1931 train had special features for women and children and it was traveling throughout the state from August 24 through September 5, 1931. The towns where the train would stop each year are listed on the posters. The trains were operated jointly by the Santa Fe and the Kansas State Agricultural College. J. F. Jarrell, manager of Agricultural Development for Santa Fe, was the organizer of these trains. The posters make a point of emphasizing that the speakers will be on a flat car "equipped with electrically controlled voice amplifiers. Visitors remaining in their automobiles will be able to hear perfectly."

Toilet Paper

Toilet Paper
Creator: Robinson, David
Date: 1918
Single square of two-ply toilet paper. Before the time of donation, it was found in a desk drawer in the city light plant in Ellinwood, Kansas. A portrait of Kaiser Wilhelm II wearing a spiked military helmet is printed in red ink on the paper. The image is identical to those used to promote the 1918 anti-German film "The Kaiser, the Beast of Berlin." It is unclear whether the toilet paper was made specifically to promote the movie or if it was simply inspired by the film. Newspapers indicate the movie was shown at the Knights of Columbus Opera House in Ellinwood on May 7 and/or 8, 1918. It was scheduled to be shown at the Echo Theater in Great Bend on May 15-16, 1918, but was rescheduled to May 22-23, 1918. The movie was heavily advertised in local papers for serveral weeks leading up to the showings.

Date: 1918
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 William F. Scheufler, Company C, 137th Infantry, 35th Division. Scheufler was wounded in action in the Argonne Forest on September 28, 1918 and died of those wounds two days later.
