F.J. Aufdemberge to Governor Harry Hines Woodring

F.J. Aufdemberge to Governor Harry Hines Woodring
Creator: Aufdemberge, F. J.
Date: March 10, 1932
The mayor of Lincoln Center (Lincoln County), F. J. Aufdemberge, writes Governor Harry Woodring of Topeka, Kansas, with a plan to help reduce the high number of unemployed men in the state. Mr. Aufdemberge suggests that married women whose husbands are employed should be required to resign and let unemployed men have those jobs, especially in the case of women teachers employed in high schools. Between 1930 and 1933, Kansas experienced a dramatic rise in unemployment. Woodring's Governor's Committee on Unemployment favored work programs at the local level rather than cash relief programs funded by tax increases. By July 1932, Woodring appealed to the federal government for help and established the Kansas Federal Relief Committee to administer the federal programs. See Governor Harry Woodring to F. J. Aufdemberge, March 23 1932.

Governor Harry Hines Woodring to F.J. Aufdemberge

Governor Harry Hines Woodring to F.J. Aufdemberge
Creator: Woodring, Harry Hines, 1887-1967
Date: March 23, 1932
Governor Harry Woodring of Topeka, Kansas, replies to a letter from the mayor of Lincoln (Lincoln County), F. J. Aufdemberge. The mayor's letter posses a solution to the high number of unemployed men in the state. He suggests that women whose husbands are employed should be required to resign and let unemployed men have their jobs, especially in the case of women teachers employed in high schools. The Governor generally agrees but declines the involvement of state government, favoring instead control by each institution or community. The Governor concurs that the American Legion may be able to sway public opinion in favor of such resignations. Kansas experienced a dramatic increase in unemployment between 1930-1933. Local work programs failed to address the problem. In July 1932, Governor Woodring applied for federal aid and created the Kansas Emergency Relief Committee to administer the federal programs. See F. J. Aufdemberge to Governor Harry Woodring, March 10 1932.
