Creator: Getto, Paul
Date: August 31, 2006

He came to Kansas University to college because his brother Mike was an assistant football coach at KU in 1935. After college he attended Kansas City Western Dental School (now part of the University of Missouri). He married his wife Winnifred in 1942. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the community institutions receiving grants.

Report of the minority, in report and testimony of the select committee to Investigate the causes of the removal of the Negroes from the southern states to the northern states, in three parts

Report of the minority, in report and testimony of the select committee to Investigate the causes of the removal of the Negroes from the southern states to the northern states, in three parts
Creator: United States. Congress. Senate. Select Committee on Negro Exodus
Date: 1880
This report, written by the minority party of the Senate select committee investigating the Exodus, outlines the minority's conclusions about the reasons for black emigration to the North during the Reconstruction period. This committee, composed of majority and minority parties, had taken testimony from hundreds of people having direct knowledge of the exodus movement. In essence, the minority party concluded that the Northern Republican Party and emigrant aid organizations had not persuaded blacks in the South to emigrate to the North. Instead, the unfavorable condition of life in the South had caused this mass exodus. The minority members were William Windom, a Republican senator from Minnesota, and Henry W. Blair, a Republican senator from New Hampshire.

Rush Elmore to James Stallworth

Rush Elmore to James Stallworth
Creator: Elmore, Rush
Date: January 11, 1858
Rush Elmore was an associate justice of the Kansas Territory's supreme court, a leading delegate at the Lecompton Constitutional Convention, and a slave holder. He writes this letter of introduction, from Lecompton, Kansas Territory, for John Halderman to "hand" to the Hon. James A. Stallworth, who was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Elmore's home state of Alabama. Halderman is, apparently, making a trip to Washington, D.C., and Elmore asks Congressman Stallworth to show Halderman every courtesy. Elmore calls his "friend" Halderman "a gentleman of some prominence not only in his county but throughout the Territory," and writes "You will be able to learn many important & interesting facts in relation to the Territory and its Political parties from him."
