An Address Issued by the Shawnee County, Kansas, Old Soldiers' Bryan Free Silver Club, Embracing Over 300 Members

An Address Issued by the Shawnee County, Kansas, Old Soldiers' Bryan Free Silver Club, Embracing Over 300 Members
Date: 1896
The members of the club in the title of this pamphlet were Civil War veterans. They were supporters of William Jennings Bryan and his efforts to promote the unlimited coinage of silver. Populists believed that the free coinage of silver would increase the money supply and thus the wealth of the working class. J. J. Miller, the president of the club, was a veteran of an Ohio regiment who had settled in Kansas after the Civil War. This address may have been given at a meeting of the club at 420 Kansas Avenue on Friday, September 11, 1896.

The crisis, (revised) or, The way to settle the gold and silver question

The crisis, (revised) or, The way to settle the gold and silver question
Creator: Farrell, W. H.
Date: 1896
W. H. Farrell of Leavenworth, Kansas, wrote this to support William Jennings Bryan's campaign for president and to explain how the unlimited coinage of silver would aid workers. This pamphlet presents a fairly clear argument of why Populists wanted "free silver." Bryan was running as a Democrat but the Populists were supporting him.


William Jennings Bryan

William Jennings Bryan
Creator: Hays & Hahn, Fort Scott, Kan.
Date: Between 1900 and 1908
This is a cabinet card showing William Jennings Bryan and labeled our next president. Bryan ran unsuccessfully for United States President in 1896, 1900 and 1908 as a member of the Democratic Party. In the 1896 campaign, Bryan gave over 500 speeches and is credited with starting the national stumping tour. He served two terms as a member of the United States House of Representatives from Nebraska and was United States Secretary of State under President Woodrow Wilson (1913-1915), resigning because of his pacifist position on World War I.


William Jennings Bryan and Walt Mason in Emporia, Kansas

William Jennings Bryan and Walt Mason in Emporia, Kansas
Date: September 01, 1916
This postcard from 1916 features William Jennings Bryan and Walt Mason during a Bryan visit to Emporia. Bryan was on his way to Morris County for a Chautauqua tour appearance. He made a brief stop in Emporia to visit Mason, a friend and former neighbor. Mason worked for the Emporia Gazette, but was nationally known for his syndicated "prose poems." The inscription on the back of the postcard indicates that the photo was taken on September 2, 1916. However, a September 1 article in the Gazette reported that Bryan had visited Emporia earlier that day. The article also identifies the photographer as Ben Morgan, of the Morris Drug Store.
