This folder on Appointments State Geologist 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. First is a letter from W. Foster requesting that his name be sent to the senate as state geologist. This record also contains several petitions recommending Professor W. Foster or B. F. Mudge as State Geologist. Additionally, there is a letter from Professor W. Foster withdrawing his name for State Geologist and encloses a petition for Professor Mudge, February 2nd, 1864 to be appointed this position.
