This folder on Appointments Normal school directors comes from the Correspondence series of the Governor Thomas Carney Papers. Thomas Carney was Kansas' second state Governor, serving from 1863 to 1865. He was born near Tipton, Delaware County, Ohio in 1824 and came to Kansas in search of better health care and new business opportunities. Thomas Carney and his business partner Thomas C. Stevens were the first to open a wholesale house in Leavenworth, Kansas. These are documents written to Governor Carney in 1864 requesting the appointment of certain individuals to be members of the Board of Directors for the Normal School. In 1863, the legislature created the first public university, Kansas State Normal School in Emporia, Kansas.
