Irma Law to Governor Frank Hagaman
Creator: Law, Irma
Date: December 15, 1950
Irma Law, Executive Secretary of the Kansas State Nurses' Association (KSNA), of Topeka, Kansas writes Governor Frank L. Hagaman, also of Topeka, concerning the founding of a state civilian defense program. Law volunteers the services of the KSNA and its 2900 members in support of civilian defense. Law encloses a letter she wrote to Dr. F. C. Beelman, Director of the Kansas State Board of Health on the same issue. Law's letter follows the initiation of a United Nations' police action against North Korea in which the United States military played a dominant role. The Korean conflict further strained the already fragile relations between the U. S. and the communist Soviet Union and China. This "cold war" increased fears of a possible atomic world war and renewed interest in domestic programs for civilian defense.

Kansas State Board of Health letterpress book

Kansas State Board of Health letterpress book
Creator: Crumbine, Samuel J. (Samuel Jay), 1862-1954
Date: December 12, 1905 -October 16, 1906
Dr. Samuel Crumbine kept this letter press book of outgoing correspondence during the first two years of his tenure as secretary of the Kansas State Board of Health. The letters proceed in chronological order. A partial alphabetical index to correspondents is available at the back of the volume. The letters in this volume were "pressed" from the originals onto copy paper using water and a heavy weight at the time of their creation. The impression process was a crude form of preservation and was prone to error. Too much or too little water, or weight, could result in a poor copy. Many of the letters in this volume will be difficult to read, and some may not be legible, but they accurately reflect the condition of the letter pressings. Some pressings that were impossible to read in grayscale were scanned in color to help bring out the text.

Summary of deaths

Summary of deaths
Creator: Kansas. Board of Health
Date: 1918
These two reports by the Division of Vital Statistics, Kansas Board of Health, compile statistics on Kansas deaths by cause and by county for 1918. The first volume reports death by cause; the second by county. During World War I, an influenza epidemic swept around the world killing millions. Evidence suggests the disease started in Kansas with most deaths occurring in 1918. The county numbers are listed in the volume on counties. The disease numbers are listed in the volume on causes. The social condition section likely refers to marital status (single, married, widowed, divorced, and unknown). The nativity section likely refers to native born or foreign born. In this full volume, there is a page for each county, and additional pages for larger cities ? possibly the first class ones. Each page bears a number that corresponds to the number on the page of statistics at UID 217181. Numbers 1 thru 105 are assigned to the 105 counties in alphabetical order. Numbers 200-400 are assigned to the cities within those counties Examples: 1 = Allen County 201 = Iola, Allen County 105 = Wyandotte County 205 = Kansas City, Wyandotte Co. 305 = Rosedale, Wyandotte Co. (You'll notice that the companion number for County 5 is 405 as to not duplicate 205 and 305.) In the full volume, you can go from county to county quickly by using the Page Selection drop down menu (on the upper left-hand side of the image).
