This book begins with a childhood reminiscence written in Iowa in 1914 (p1-23), followed by a reminiscence of her Kansas trip written in Iowa in 1921 (p24-36) that covers Aug 23, 1870 - Jan 30, 1871.

A complete, revised transcription of both manuscripts is available by clicking on "Text Version" below.

Creator: Kansas. Board of Corrections
Date: 1914
The Kansas State Reform School, also known as the Industrial School for Boys, was established in 1879 by a legislative act that appropriated $35,000 for the erection of buildings, etc., in Topeka, Kansas. Control and supervision of the school was placed in the hands of the Board of Trustees of Charitable Institutions. The school was located 3 miles north of the capitol building on an original tract of 170 acres that was given by the city of Topeka. The west wing of the main building was opened on June 1, 1881.

The boys learned, among other things, tailoring, shoe and harness making, woodworking of various kinds, baking, and printing. This item includes reports from the superintendent and parole agent.

Box scores from a baseball tournament in Smith Center

Box scores from a baseball tournament in Smith Center
Date: 1914
These typewritten box scores document the results of games played in a baseball tournament held in Smith Center on July 15-17, 1914. Participating teams included Gaylord, Lebanon, Portis and Smith Center. On the first day of the tournament, Gaylord defeated Portis, 9-2, and Lebanon defeated Smith Center, 9-6. On the second day, Gaylord bested Lebanon, 4-3, and Portis won over Smith Center, 3-2. Lebanon defeated Portis, 6-0, on the final day and Smith Center beat Gaylord, 4-1. Since Lebanon and Gaylord each had two wins, the tie-breaker rule was applied, giving the tournament title to Gaylord. The rule provided that, in the event of a tie in the number of wins, the tournament championship would be awarded to the team with the fewest runs scored against it by opponents. Gaylord's opponents scored 9 runs, while Lebanon's scored 10 runs. Had Smith Center scored one more run in its victory over Gaylord on the final day, Lebanon would have won the tournament, since the next tie-breaker rule to be applied was total number of runs scored. The box scores were preserved in a scrapbook with items related to the baseball activities of Ray Stewart. Stewart was a Topeka pitcher hired to join the Lebanon team for the tournament. The winning Gaylord team was composed largely of players imported from the Kansas City area.

Building at 117 S. Main in Cimarron, Kansas

Building at 117 S. Main in Cimarron, Kansas
Date: July 29, 1914
This two-story brick commercial building located at 117 S. Main in downtown Cimarron was at the center of a heated county seat dispute in 1889. When Gray County was established in 1887, Cimarron was designated the temporary county seat. Nearby Ingalls also sought permanent county seat status and in an election on October 31, 1887, both towns claimed victory. Accusations of buying votes and ballotbox stuffing were slung back and forth. The Kansas Supreme Court eventually declared Cimarron the winner. This building served as Gray County's first courthouse and was one of only a few permanent masonry buildings in Cimarron at the time. The county leased the building in January of 1888. One year later, a group of men from Ingalls raided the courthouse and stole the county records leaving three men dead in the bloody gunfight. Despite this setback, the county continued to operate in Cimarron. The present courthouse, which dates to 1927, is located two blocks south of this building. This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
