W.E. Dannefer to Senator Arthur Capper

W.E. Dannefer to Senator Arthur Capper
Creator: Dannefer, W.E.
Date: April 23, 1942
In this letter to Senator Arthur Capper, W.E. Dannefer, Public Relations Director for Irrigation District Number One (Republic, Jewell, and Cloud Counties), argues that the National Youth Administration projects in Kansas are doing quite well, and is absolutely critical in helping prevent the migration of Kansans to other states. Part of the work done by the NYA in Kansas involved the irrigation of previously poor farmland. During the process, many young Kansas girls served as clerical workers and stenographers, helping collect information that was used for the various projects. According to Dannefer, the data provided by the girls was key to convincing local, state, and federal authorities of the need for an irrigation program in Kansas.
