Correspondence between Dwight David Eisenhower and U.S. Senator Joseph L. Bristow concerning Eisenhower's appointment to a military academy

Correspondence between Dwight David Eisenhower and U.S. Senator Joseph L. Bristow concerning Eisenhower's appointment to a military academy
Creator: Eisenhower, Dwight David, 1890-1969
Date: August 1910 -- March 1911
This is a series of letters concerning Dwight D. Eisenhower's request for an appointment to a military academy--either West Point or Anapolis. Four of the letters are from Eisenhower to Kansas Senator Joseph L. Bristow. One is from E. F. Fairchild to Bristow conveying the scores of Kansans taking a preliminary examination and one is from Bristow informing Eisenhower of his appointment to West Point. Eisenhower was living in Abilene, Kansas, when he wrote these letters. Eisenhower, born October 14, 1890, was nearly 20 but claimed to be a year younger as the Naval Academy did not accept candidates over age 18. The items in this series are also in Kansas Memory as individual items except the letter from Eisenhower dated August 20, 1910, which is the first letter in this item.

Speech of Hon. Joseph L. Bristow of Kansas in the Senate of the United States. In this speech, Senator Bristow criticizes President Wilson for not supporting suffrage for women.

He refers to a visit to President Wilson by a delegation of women headed by Dr. Anna Shaw. He then quotes Wilson's remarks that indicate he is bound by the Democratic party platform which opposed votes for women. Bristow quotes several other instances where President Wilson appears not to be bound by his party's platform.
