Governor Henry J. Allen posed with Kansas State College of Agriculture and Applied Science students. The students were on their way to work in the coal mines in southeast Kansas. From November 1 to December 10, 1919 Kansas coal miners totaling 10,000 miners went on strike leading the state to take over the operation of the coal mines using college students and ex-servicemen. These students represented in the photograph were part of the volunteer miners.
