These letters are written by Charles Curtis and pulled from the Howel Jones and Ross Burns Collection. Charles Curtis was born January 25, 1860, in North Topeka, Kansas. He was descended from White Plume, chief of the Kaw Tribe, and Louis Pappan, one of the original settlers of North Topeka. He served as County Attorney from 1884-1889. In 1892, he was elected to the House of Representatives; he served in that body until his election to the Senate in 1907. He continued to serve in the Senate until his election to the vice-presidency under Herbert Hoover in 1928. He was the first Native American to be elected to national office. Howel Jones was a railroad officer; attorney; friend and senatorial campaign manager of Charles Curtis.
